Teri Galvez is one of our in-house anime nerds. Here are a couple recommendations from her!

If you enjoy stories about bonds and unique abilities, or beautifully animated action sequences, this is a great anime to watch! Get in on the phenomenon that's taking Japan by storm. Available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.
YashaHime: The feudal fairy tale that took the world in the 90s and 2000s is back in this all new sequel series. Towa Higurashi gets separated from her twin, Setsuna, during a forest fire, and is mysteriously sent to present day Tokyo. Years later, they are reunited, but Setsuna has forgotten everything. With the help of bounty hunter, Moroha, they will venture through feudal Japan to get Setsuna's memories back.
For those of us that grew up on Inuyasha, this adventure will make you nostalgic for the classics. Available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.
