Synopsis:

There are many kinds of youkai in the world, some of which take on the form of scary, malevolent monsters that want to punish humans for their careless ways or even harvest them for their own nefarious plans. However, at the other end of the spectrum are the harmless spirits who simply wish to co-exist peacefully with mankind. Young Kitarou is one such ghoul who, along with his talking eyeball of a father and various youkai friends, has taken it upon himself to protect humans from the monsters that would do them harm – that is, if the mischievous and greedy Rat-man doesn’t keep causing trouble in the process…

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.

Tactics

Tactics

Since he was a child, Kantaro Ichinomiya has had the ability to see demons; but one day, the young Kantaro was told of a goblin so powerful that it could vanquish any foe with ease. Intrigued, his search began. Now, in the present, Kantaro works as an exorcist, banishing demons who have possessed human bodies; yet still he searches – that is, until one day, he touches a mysterious seal and releases the legend itself! His name is Haruka, he's good with the ladies, and he can kick demon butt like no other; but can he help Kantaro raise enough money for his rent?

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.
