Synopsis:

In a small, secluded hut far from town lives a young ghost boy by the name of Gegege no Kitarou and his tiny talking eyeball of a father. Despite his eerie nature, Kitarou spends his days trying to help the human world co-exist in harmony with the spooks and youkai that would otherwise cause them harm. From helping to retrieve a demonic baseball bat from a young boy to scaring off a hostile monster who is stealing children’s souls, Kitarou and his father do their best to maintain the peace with the help – or possibly hindrance – of the rodent-like Nezumi Otoko and the rest of his creepy friends.

Both shows revolve around demons and are timeless classics. While dororo is focused on a samurai hunting demons, and gegege is about a demon just making a living they both have the overall same feel. If you like old animes about with demons in it and loved one of these you will surely like the other.

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...

These series are kind of like two sides of the same coin. Whereas Natsume Yuujinchou focuses on helping spirits, GeGeGe no Kitarou is more about stopping harmful spirits from harming humans. However both of these series are heavily rooted in Japanese mythology, so for anyone who holds an interest in that, both these series are worth watching.

Both GeGeGe no Kitarou and Tactics are steeped in Japanese mythology and the supernatural. Both also focus on someone preventing/exorcising spirits who are causing trouble for humans. If you liked Tactics then definitely check out Kitarou.
