With a great deal of will and the quiet assistance of his insightful grandfather, he will become a force of good in the battle against encroaching evil.

If you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.
The main characters, style, and structure of the world are strikingly similar in both series. It's like the crew of one show decided they liked the setting, art style, etc. so much, they decided to make the other, so it definitely feels like one is a continuation of the adventure that the other started.
Similar plot and setting. Both have a sort of demons and excorsism. Overall the essence of the two is similar while each has its own unique points.
Amatsuki and Hakuouki share a surprising amount of similiar concepts. First of all, both take place in feudal Japan and intergrate history into their plotlines (moreso Hakuouki, since Amatsuki travels off into a more fictional plot). Both are very slow-paced, but entertaining (for example, comedic moments with Shinpachi and Heisuke in Hakuouki or Kon and Shamon in Amatsuki), even though there's plenty of talking. Also, mystery plays a big part in both, which hooks watchers into such slowly-paced shows as these. Overall, the shows are pratically blood siblings in every aspect but plot.
The story setting of Feudal Japan is seen in both Amatsuki and Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan with intense fighting scenes and spirits popping out of nowhere. There also happens to be an underlying layer of mystery shrouding the characters.

The shows are similar in that they have very slashable action with the boys (the protagonists of both shows are also similarly laid-back) without excluding strong females, and on top of that there's a Japanese history mingling with the modern day using a supernatural medium.
