Mushishi

Mushishi

It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.

Apparently Berserk was heavily influenced by the manga this show is based on. Thematically they share similar core compenents such as a cursed protagonist who struggles against demons hellbent on killing them. Plenty of violence and dark themes with cool action sequences set in medieval Japan.

Rurouni Kenshin

However, Kenshin has a dark past which threatens to destroy the values he is fighting for. When he meets his new friends Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Yahiko, and tries to build a peaceful life with them, events conspire against him. Can Kenshin overcome the demons within and without, and finally ensure the peaceful future that Japan deserves?

If you like awesome sword fights that take place in the past you will probably like both these anime. While Dororo is more of a fantasy and Kenshin has a lot more politics involved, I really believe fans will enjoy both.

Both, Inuyasha and Hyakkimaru are antiheroes, both share a tragic back story and are accompanied by a "good" main/side character as are Kagome and Dororo. 

Both series are on the episodic side, but follow an overarching story and ultimate goal. In both they encounter, fight and defeat mythical demons.

They both also have a sprinkle of romance, but it's not the main focus of the story.
