Any Animorph-like manga/anime with shapeshifting

I am one of those people who grew up with Animorphs and I always thought they would make a good anime or manga. Does anyone know any stories that involve animal shapeshifting or transformation that is sort of in the Animorph style?

I know there are works like Fruit Baskets, Kanon, and stuff but any other recommendations?

I think Darker than Black has stuff like this but it's not exactly a main theme.

A main character is a man who can take control of animals and is stuck in a cat's body
Spoiler for spoiler:

Off-hand two of supporting characters of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha are both shapeshifters and play a fairly large role in the first season anyways.

Also Holo of Spice and Wolf might fit what you're looking for.

The film Night on the Galactic Railroad contains anthropomorphic cats.

First thing that came to me was Yoruichi from Bleach... but she rarely appears in the show and Bleach is not that good anyway.

One of the characters in D.Gray Man loves to transform but not only in animals... but animal is one of her main forms. However, she appears only somewhere in the middle of the series.

Howl's Moving Castle, it's a movie and one of the characters can transform into a crow.

Inuyasha has several characters who can transfer into wolves.

Pandora Hearts? Main heroine transforms into huge bunny.

Spice and Wolf, main heroine transforms into a wolf.

Spirited away, guy transforms into a dragon as far as I remember.

Wolf's Rain, wolfs again though I got a bit confused on how the changing works.

I was re-watching Oh! Edo Rocket last night and realized it fits this request.

Koi Neko - cats can shapeshift between their cat forms and human ones if they fall in love with a human, main protagonist is a boy whose gf is a cat

not sure exactly what you're looking for but this would be a comedy/harem

I second these two, especially Spice and Wolf. But who wouldn't like a huge bunny!
