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.

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.

Hi no Tori

Hi no Tori

From swordsmen to robots, from ancient tribal cultures to civilizations that reach the stars, there is one force that dominates all others: life. From birth to death, and rebirth again, it is life that permeates the soul and opens up to us the mysteries of the universe. Within this tale of the phoenix and those who would be touched by its beauty, we are shown the joys and tragedies that life sometimes hands us, and what we, as humans, must do to survive...

Each anime has several different stories within their genre. Hi no Tori takes on the sci-fi part where Ayakashi takes on horror. Both are sure to please if you are interested in either genre and just wanting to sit down for a quick story that will leave you satisfied.

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. 

Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

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...

Attack on Titan feels like it would fit right in with the creepy stories in Ayakashi. It could have been plucked out of Ayakashi and merely expanded upon. I recommend both anime.
