Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

YYH and FMA both have great action and stories, and kickass characters. If you liked one, try out the other.

babelguppy

Not that i'm an absolute meter, but I have rather specific tastes in anime and manga, and these two make it into my "favorite of all time" category; something I don't take lightly. 

More objectively, they both center around a teenaged boy with a lot of room to grow.  They have similar personalities and a tight network of supporting characters and friends.  These characters are both endearing and badass at just the right moments leaving you wanting more.  While Yu Yu Hakusho is more on the fighting end of things, the later half has the deeper, character building and challenging plot developement that sucked me into me me to FMA.  Both are of a good shounen tradition that continues strong over the years.

Kiyohime

Get Backers and Yu Yu Hakusho both employ characters with magical abilities and call upon the paranormal and solve crimes and mysteries. While Yu Yu is more of a 'fighting to save the world' kind of anime while Get Backers is more of a 'fight because that what we were hired for' anime both are fighting for strong founded reasons. Action, comedy, and cool fighting sequences make up these anime  

Akunen

Get Backers and Yu Yu Hakusho both have a colourful cast, and each character has a unique power at their disposal. Both contain plenty of action, and there is a balance between comedy and the actual storyline. Though Hakusho is longer and uses much more action, you should enjoy one if you liked the other.

Mar

Mar

Ginta would much rather dream of fantasy worlds than do his homework; but when he dreams of the same place 102 times, he knows something is amiss. The 103rd time, his dream becomes a reality when he is whisked away to the enchanted lands of MAR Heaven, a place where magic and monsters really do exist, and the world is being torn apart by an evil queen. Now, before he can find his way home, Ginta must take on the queen with the help of newfound friends Babbo, Jack, Alan and Snow. Together, they could be MAR’s best chance of liberation from the hands of evil!

The similarities between Yu Yu Hakusho and s-CRY-ed are unavoidable. In both series the main character is a badass with unnatural powers who does things on his own terms and is accompanied by companions that help him throughout. Also, in both anime the main characters do everything in their power to protect those close to them. So even though Yu Yu Hakasho is 86 episodes longer then s-CRY-ed, for fans of great action scenes, nice artwork and a decent story both anime are a must.

YuYu Hakausho also has those moments where his powers are not enough becuse he doesn't know he has great power or understand the propertys and possabilitys of what he alredy has. Then like Scryed show, he understands his powers and can use them to there fullest. BUT. unlike YuYu Hakausho, Scryed has a darker tone and an epic novel feel to it

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

Careno

The main characters in both anime fight against forces that seek to destory the human race. Although the main characters have very different personalities, they both share the same fighting spirit to protect what is important to them.

Suimin
