If you liked the Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
At the Kokumondo book store, Suzuri will do whatever it takes to find the most rare and historic artifacts for his customers – in fact, the man has just procured a tale of a terrifying spider monster who ate the men of a village one by one. But when Suzuri's assistant Mizuki opened the book, little did the two know that the monster herself would be unsealed from the pages, nor that she'd be an adorable little girl!
Wasurenagumo seems like it could have been a story from Ayakashi. The mood is very similar, and the twists and turns it takes add to that feeling. If you watched and enjoyed Wasurenagumo or Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror and want more, you'll definitely want to give the other a try.
Horror tales in short formats, Wasurenagumo and Ayakashi will both raise the hair on the back of your neck. If you liked the atmosphere in either show, check out the other for similar supernatural vibes.
Step right up and gaze upon tales of horror and wonder, of urban legends and terrifying mysteries alike. From a man who suffers a mysterious accident on a business trip, to a boy who witnesses a horrifying family secret, to even a man who’s certain he’s being watched by a long-haired, creepy woman, there’s plenty of harrowing stories to be told.
Yamishibai's episodes are much shorter, but both it and Ayakashi deal with classic horror stories. The animation in both is unique, and I believe fans of one may be interested in the other.
Each of these shows portray classic Japanese horror stories with a fairly distinctive art style. Yamishibai's episodes are much shorter, but they each deal with the same kind of content.
Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...
Strange things have been happening at a local high school... mysterious disappearances, strange powers and brutal murders all emerge amongst kids who, up till now, have been perfectly normal. Even the Shinigami (Angel of Death) herself has been sighted. What's happening? The answers lie in the mysterious creature known as Boogiepop...
Boogiepop Phantom is like Ayakashi in that it shows the darkness in relationships between people, with Boogiepop being a modern setting. Ayakashi might be about old Japanese horror stories, while Boogiepop would be modern, but both still focus on human relationships as the root cause.
Although the genre of the stories are different, both Utakoi and Ayakashi share a collection of stories. Utakoi's stories are shorter and romantic, Ayakashi's are longer and pretty grim. If I remember correctly, both include some tragedy. If you like compilations of stories and don't mind the difference in genre, you should give both a try.
