Both anime share not only the author, but a similar dynamic and humor. If you liked the humor and character part of the story, you'll enjoy both. Myself, I found Ranma to be very funny, and really enjoyed it. Inuyasha drags a lot, and it is not good as Ranma. But it has it's own merits even if I am not able to appreciate them. If you liked Inuyasha's humor, definitely read Ranma. The inverse is true, although to a lesser extent.

It's from the same mangaka and quite similiar. The drawings resemble each other, though InuYasha contains more of a plot.

Futaba-kun Change

Futaba-kun Change

Futaba Shimeru used to be a typical, awkward teenager, eager to get closer to the opposite sex, especially his classmate, Misaki. But after suddenly transforming into a buxom female in the school bathroom, Futaba discovers that there's more to his genes than meets the eye! As now that Futaba is an adolescent, he has gained the unique ability of the Shimeru bloodline to transform into the opposite sex. Unfortunately for the boy, for now, these outbursts are uncontrollable and are triggered by stressful situations. And given his female alter ego must now attend the same school and fight off the advances of his peers, Futaba's peaceful life will never be the same!

Both are comedic shounen series with a gender-bending main character. Futaba-kun has more ecchi moments and is much shorter than Ranma, but both are packed with action and romantic comedy.

Having a romance, that seems forever thwarted is one of the similarities of these two manga.

Add the fact that both have a large cast of eccentric characters, and is penned by the same author, and you can not help but enjoy both.

This is a real "Well DUH" recommendation. A guy who turns into a girl and back again. Both have action and comedy that flow well. Enjoy!
