Synopsis:

Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?

XXXHOLiC

XXXHOLiC

Kimihiro Watanuki is cursed with the ability to see evil spirits known as Youkai. Due to this power, the Youkai are attracted to him like a magnet, and each time he is close to being devoured. One day, fate drew him to a strange store and there, he met Yuuko, who was dressed in a very exquisite fashion. As destiny would have it, Yuuko has the ability to save Kimihiro from seeing the Youkai, but for a price: Kimihiro must work for Yuuko by performing chores around the store and other odd tasks, until she deems fit. With his "friend" Doumeki, and his secret crush Himawari, they will discover that the world they live in is nowhere close to ordinary!

Well, the reason I recommend this anime as they both have the lead character moving to a new place, new school and everything and both animes are harem. Other than that, the story changes after every 3-4 episodes in which the story continues with a new girl. Though of course, Higurashi no naku koro ni is more of a gory anime while Yosuga no sora is more drama.

While watching yosuga no sora I constantly got a feel of Higurashi. 

Zettai Shonen

Zettai Shonen

Aizawa Ayumu is spending the summer visiting his father in the quiet, rural town of Tana; but before long, he begins to notice that things aren't quite right. Flowers are blooming out of season and stories of ghosts and kappa abound, but for Ayumu, the strangest thing of all is the appearance of mysterious creatures who take the form of floating balls of light. Adding to this mystery is Wakkun - a boy who seems to be connected to the lights and claims to know Ayumu from the past. Now, Ayumu begins to search for the truth about the lights and Wakkun, as a summer like no other begins...

If you like watching an anime about moving to a strange town, you might like Zettai Shonen. Both animes have a male character who moves to a mysterious town with mysteries. The towns of Zettai Shonen and Higurashi are both old-fashioned with traditions. Both towns also have a festival that hold significant meaning to the plot.
