You can say that Yuji's power comes from his "soul" in Shakugan no Shana, but he doesn't become a main fighter until the second season.

Hunter x Hunter. Although it's based on the system of Nen, there're seven types of Nen, and which type a person belongs to, as well as what his weapon (or ultimate technique) of choice manifestation is like, depends on his personality.
*Note - Nen is the main thing in the anime, but it isn't revealed till the end of the Hunter exam arc.

Guyver...maybe - great brutal series about a man who is blessed and cursed with discovering an alien artifact that gives him the greatest power in the universe: an exosleton that is symbiotically linked to his body. Some truly great action in this older Seinen series.

Trigun -
Spoiler for minor spoiler:

Realistically, any Samurai show can be construed as being about a person's soul residing in their sword, more specifically, if their sword breaks or fails, then the person will die, much the same as in Scryed, Busou Renkin, Bleach, etc. Actually, any show based around action (using tools etc) will have some sequence where the warrior will contemplate their weapon (whether it be fist, sword, ax or gun) as well as the philosophical/spiritual properties of fighting. In these same sequences, the warrior will often comment on their connection to their weapon, how they can not live without it.

Juushin Enbu: Hero Tales has characters that are choosen by stars and each has a different weapon. They also transfer their ki into their weapons in order to strengthen them. This anime "starts out strong" with a big fight right from the beginning.
