In the human world, there live demonic invaders named Shinma who prey upon the fragile souls of humans. The only hope for the humans is one of demonkind: Miyu, who is fated to destroy the Shinma and send them back to whence they came. Although half-human herself, as well as living amongst them as a typical high school student, she bears no compassion for those she saves, as well as condemns. Along with Larva, her subservient, Miyu sets out to destroy evil, one Shinma at a time.
Similar to Vampire Princess Miyu TV, Ayakashi Japanese Horror focuses on individual stories with a dark twist. If you like stories that delve into the characters but turn out not so sweet, you'll enjoy Vampire Princess Miyu. Both are very 'Japanese' with the ghosts and characters they depict.

With endless temptations, lies and heartbreak at every turn, Makoto and Kotonoha’s relationship will soon be put to the ultimate test...
They're not in the same genre, but both School Days and Ayakashi feature a cast of self-centered jerks, themes involving desperation and revenge, and really unfortunate love triangles that end in the absolute worst way imaginable.
Despite all this (or maybe because of it), I really enjoyed both, and you might too.

From birth to death, and rebirth again, it is life that permeates the soul and opens up to us the mysteries of the universe.

The "Hyakunin Isshu" are an anthology of one hundred poems found in a trational Japanese card game called Karuta. The show is introduced by the person who selected the writings, Fujiwara no Teika. This is a glimpse into the origin of some of them. Since the majority of them are love compositions, the focus remains on romance in ancient Japan.
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.
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...
