Night Wizard and 11eyes have a number of similarities that I think make for a good recommendation. At their very basic, both series involve students who are forced to fight against supernatural enemies at random times. Along the way they forge friendships that allow them to overcome their difficulties. If you liked one, I would check out the other.
When I first started watching 11eyes, I was immediately reminded of Night Wizard. The two premises and characters are really alike. If you like stories with teenagers getting thrown into situations where they discover they have some hidden power, and forced to fight for reasons they don't know, give either of these a try.
Let’s start at the very beginning--and I mean, the VERY beginning, as in the openings. If I had more proof, I would annoyingly tell everyone besides just my friends that 11 Eyes “stole” Night Wizard’s opening animation. Moving on, both of these anime are similar in the following exactly: are about some high school students who have been fighting since who knows when AND about some high school students who are brand new to fighting with powers; the main character changes his or her eye color from time to time. Also, whenever enemies appear, a red moon suddenly manifests itself into a scarlet sky, letting all characters aware of a battle with machinated demons from another world will subsequently follow. If you appealed to either 11 Eyes or Night Wizard, check out its crimson shadow.
The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...
Both Tsubasa Chronicle and Night Wizard follow the 'quest' format. In Night Wizard the quest is to collect the Jewels of Virtue for Elis, and in Tsubasa Chronicle the quest is to collect memory feathers for Sakura. The two series have a group of uniquely-skilled people who must travel together to different locations, solve problems, or fight battles to obtain the desired items.
Tsubasa has the stronger plot (being a CLAMP series) and a brilliant soundtrack. Night Wizard is weaker as it is a game conversion and a shorter series, but it is entertaining. Both series complement each other well.
In both of these animes, they are both on a quest to look for something. In Tsubasa, they are looking for the lost feathers (memories) of Sakura. In Night Wizard they are looking for the jewels of virtue, which they believe can unlock the gate to Rikai (if destroyed, they believe they can save the world). They are very good animes with plot twists and if you liked one you should like the other. :)
The name of the business is Astral, and magic is its trade. Itsuki Iba is a school boy who seems to have a weak personality and not an ounce of magic within him, yet he inherits and must run his father's 'magic for hire' company after his father disappears. He must now learn to manage a diverse team of magic-wielders, gain their respect, and send them on missions to deal with the supernatural – all while attempting to excel in school and deal with competitors! But deep down, there's more to Itsuki. He always wears an eyepatch, hiding the results of an incident from his childhood; what other secrets does he hold? And can he handle the responsibilities while his father is missing?
Both Night Wizard and Rental Magica deal with magic. The main characters, Elis from Night Wizard and Itsuki from Rental Magica, struggle to understand their purpose and their power.
Taking the same idea of an organisation fighting against supernatural creatures, both Night Wizard and Rental Magica are incrediby easy to watch. While the situation may be different between the two series, there are definately similarities between the series that make it easy to watch one if you've seen the other.
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippo the mischievous fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
At one point I thought that if I closed my eyes, I could exchange the characters from Night Wizard to InuYasha and it wouldn't make a difference; not because they look the same, but because they essentially have the same function. In both there's a girl who has special powers and can feel the parts of the jewel she needs to obtain, a powerful guy who protects the girl, several sidekicks, and a specific weapon for each character. Really, if you liked one, there's no reason you wouldn't like the other.
Two and a half years have passed since the end of Naruto’s old adventures. He has trained hard with Jiraiya-sama and has returned to Konoha to reunite with his friends; but Akatsuki, the organization that threatened Naruto years before, is on the move again and this time Naruto is not the only one in danger. With the powerful Akatsuki organization looming ahead of him, Sasuke still missing, and the struggle with the beast hidden inside him a continuous battle, will Naruto's hard-earned improvements be enough? Join Naruto, Sakura, new friends and the rest of the old gang as the action heats up with new techniques and stronger enemies.
Thoug at first glance they appear unquarellated, more detailed investigation will yield a number of similarities. In each series, the protagonist is a teenager, with an obsessive desire to protect his friends.
Both involve four man sqads, and extraordinary abilities.
The one difference is probably in this; Naruto is much slower paced, and has far more episodes.

Now, in a race against time, Coud must endure betrayals and fierce battles as he struggles to return Ren to her home, before it's too late...
Supernatural save-the-world anime. You might think that there maybe SOMETHING original well, don't be shocked cuz there's nothing, from character design up to plot. I'm starting to lose faith in japanese animation as I watch multiply anime showing almost the same in a bit diffrent form (I'm not saying that I don't have ANY fun watching it but still ...). Well, if you by any chance liked one you should be able to enojoy the other.

Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Shungo’s new objective is to help Mayu overcome this phobia and protect her from the men her succubus powers naturally draw to her; but this becomes more difficult once he becomes the guinea pig for social experiments involving Mayu, such as sharing the same bed and even bathing together! To make matters worse, the ever-growing popularity of Mayu at school and the student council president’s infatuation with Shungo only add to his workload!
Well first of all Hiiragi and Ninomiya look very similar, and are ordered around/shouted at by the leader of the student council.Night W. is a bit more battle-oriented than Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun but thats only aparent if we think about quality.(and not quanity)The two animes might be pretty distant in terms of story(small 10 man story vs. saving the world) but if we look at the character profiles, we can always find pairs with the same personality in the two series.
