Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Without a doubt GTO is an awesome anime; it's hard to find an anime with the same feel. It may not be exact, but I'd say Yu Yu Hakusho comes pretty close. Simply because they share that same school punk feel.

GTO is a bit more serious, and has far less fantasy aspects than Yu Yu, especially in its later episodes; but the titles share some similarities such as the attitude of the protagonists, their school lives, and the art style. If you liked one, give the other a try.

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?

Both center around fighting and trying to improve one's self. Also both have fairly likeable male leads who occasionaly do idotic things for honor. They also both have decent romantic subplots. Add a wild cast of supporting characters with interesting martial arts styles and you have two very entertaining anime.

Even after mastering the ultimate attack of the demon sword Tetsusaiga, can Inuyasha do what his father couldn’t and finish off this monstrous demonic power, or is every soul in the world doomed to be consumed by it?

I think both animes have a lot in common, both have an almost preapocalipticcal story, both deal with desperate scenes, and i think i've even seen a part really resembling yusuke at Inuyasha while watching the movie. Any way, if you liked one, you'll probably like the other one, since both deal with supernatural powers, and have really arogant protagonists.

a high school boy loses his life while trying to save someone else, and is post-mortemly thrown into a world where magic and monsters are a reality. 

the feel of the two series are different, but given the common conditions surrounding the male protagonists, they share some similarities - both are worth a watch!
