Synopsis:

Sumimura Yoshimori is a Kekkaishi – an inheritor of the power to battle demons, using barriers called kekkai. His family is charged with protecting the grounds of Karasumori high school, a building which magnifies the power of demons who enter it. Helping him are his spirit-wolf companion Madarao, and next door-neighbor Yukimura Tokine, the daughter of a rival clan. Years ago, Tokine was injured protecting Yoshimori, and now he is determined to become strong enough to keep her from being hurt again. Of course, he'd rather bake his exquisite cakes than have to fight demons at all, but fate has something else in store! As a shadowy demon organization moves to steal Karasumori's power, can Yoshimori overcome legions of demons, a centuries-old family rivalry, and a grandfather who just can't understand his love for baking?

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Both Bleach and Kekkashi are supernatural shounen power-up type of shows. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other.
MonkeyZerg

If you're into school students having secret identities as combat and magic masters, fighting spirits and monsters to protect the unsuspecting communities around them, then both Kekkaishi and Bleach have a lot to offer for you.

mexigogen

If you liked Bleach, you would like this Kekkaishi because there just ain't no way around it: if you enjoyed watching Yoshimori running around killing off demons, you're going to love watching Ichigo do the same. Bleach is just a little more mature version of Kekkaishi.

Grv

Both Bleach and Kekkaishi are about superpowers, and both have a progressive plot with viable bad guys. Also, both series have a main male character with a self-burden of protecting his friends, specifically close female friends. Ichigo has Inoue and Rukia (Bleach), whilst Yoshimori has Tokine, his close childhood friend. Both series are also manga-based.

Ariadna

Bleach and Kekkaishi are about students that ought to protect their friends and the world around them using superpowers. Ichigo chasing Hollows ~ Yoshimori killing demons; Ichigo protecting Rukia/Inoue ~ Yoshimori protecting Tokine. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.

poetax

Both Bleach and Kekkaishi run with the same idea of being a Shonen series. They are both about fighting demon like entities which later band together in an organization against the protagonists. There are lots of different characters with back-stories to learn about in each series. The main characters both want to protect someone they care about, especially a female friend. If you like one, you are sure to love the other.

risuta

If you like Kekkaishi and you are looking for a similar anime, then most probably you are going to love Bleach. Bleach is an anime about a young boy, fighting wierd creatures. Just like Yoshimori, Ichigo, the main character of Bleach, is what we can call a "baka" who, however, has monsterous strength and a lot of determinatio! Ichigo feels the nedd to protect those important to him, as Yoshimori in Kekkaishi does. Well, Bleach is a great choice, thus I say you try it!

femto84

there both about high school kids fighting demons.

the main characters both start out with an overdoses power and hidden potential but without the ability to use there power effectively and there main drive is to protect the people around them.

Michichan

If you like action-packed shounen filled with characters who possess supernatural powers, then Bleach and Kekkaishi are anime for you.  Also, Ichigo of Bleach and Yoshimori of Kekkaishi are very similar in personality. 

foureyedalice

Bleach and Kekkaishi center around a grumpy, spirit-world-sensitive high school student with special fighting abilities, tasked to secretly protect those around him w/ the help of some unlikely friends. In both series, spirits and spirit-world drama and mysteries propel the plot, while the uniquely high-powered hero (Ichigo, Yoshimori) hones his skills and learns to better defeat his opponents and protect his friends and family. Though Bleach is much longer, more complicated and violent than Kekkaishi, which keeps its world a little smaller and focuses more on the relationships between the leads, they have similar sensibilities. 

watsup3

They both involve students going around killng evil spiritd and the main characters have very simlar personality trait of wanting to protect those they care for

thegreatmajeni

Both are great Shounen series. Both are keeping a certain place from getting harmed from the "Monsters" that they have to destroy, and both main characters try their best, to keep a certain safe , and away from harm.

sandule

Both series are about school students who have secret identities and are struggling to become stronger  so that they could protect the ones they love.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Despite the fact that they are quite different in style, I feel that the main character, Yoshimori-kun, has a lot in common with Edward from FMA. Both have that really cocky but funny attitude, and both are struggling for the sake of the one they love. Yoshimori is trying to protect Tokine while Edward is trying his best to help his brother regain his body.

poetax

Both have a protagonist who wishes to atone for past mistakes. They each fall under the shonen category, and have battle subjects for much of their episodes. Both Kekkaishi and Fullmetal Alchemist is about accomplishing a task that is considered by the protagonists friends as impossible. And each have a main character who can get offended by a snide remark from another party. If you like one you will surly like the other.

Michichan

Although Fullmetal Alchemist is a little heavier than Kekkaishi, people who are fans of Yoshimori will also like Edward of FMA.  They are both stubborn young men with abnormal powers and a strong will.

Both Kekkaishi and Naruto are about superpowers, and both have a progressive, manga-lead plot with viable enemies throughout. The main male character in each series is one that burdens himself with the troubles of others, which provides his motivation for improving his skills.

poetax

They both share the same traits of a shonen anime. The main characters both start out in similar situations of being the underrated weakling, and discovering a vast amount of power within themselves. Each series contains a great deal of battling between two parties. If you like Naruto, you will be sure to like Kekkaishi as well

AnimeShima

Both animes are shounens about a strong boy who doesn't know about his own powers and is seeking to become stronger to protect those who are important to him. They both contain lots of action and promising techniques that'll make you say WOW!

If you enjoyed either make sure to have a look at the other as well.

Szwagier

Both shows are shounen battle animes, dealing mainly with monsters from japaneese folklore. Whether the enemy is called yokai or ayakashi it makes small difference, since they are spirits/monsters either way.

In both cases the main character is a power user coming from a very distinguished lineage of power users. Whether it's the grandson of  the strongest youkai (Nurarihyon no Mago) or heir of the strongest barrier technique users family (Kekkaishi) both main characters are very reluctant to continue "family traditions". While circumstances pull them into the fights with monsters, they still try to lead a normal life, and hope for a normal future.

The main difference is that in Kekkaishi all monsters are on the bad guys side, while in Nurarihyon no Mago there are good monsters and bad monsters.

Meelkor

These two series have many common aspects. There are normal humas fighting demons. There are demons who looks like human but they true look is different. There is a bit school life as well. And demons looks really alike in both series. And both are full of action.

Anudevil13

Both Kekkaishi and NnM ahve similar ring to it's story. Both feature MC from a family of power users who has to deal with spirits (ayakashi in Kek and Yokai in NnM).

While Kekkaishi focuses on fighting against Spirits and eradicating them, NnM focuses on fighting together with spirits and giving them a place to call home.

Both are heavy on supernatural action and have bit of comedy+romantic side to them.

Shounen Onmyouji

Shounen Onmyouji

Being the insignificant heir to a talented family is rough, especially for someone who has little of his own talents and honestly desires to live up to the family name. Masahiro is the young grandson of the famed Abe no Seime. Although most consider him to be little in the face of his older male relatives, Masahiro is certain he can not only continue the family legacy but that he can stand in his own right as an Onmyouji. With the assistance of his friend Mokkun, he works to increase his skills and abilities as a spiritual protector and guide. With a great deal of will and the quiet assistance of his insightful grandfather, he will become a force of good in the battle against encroaching evil.

mexigogen

Well for starters both Kekkaishi and Shounen Onmyouji are about teenage boys who spend their nights vanquishing evil spirits who look like monsters. While Yoshimori is followed by a ghost wolf named Madarao, Abe no Massahiro is followed by Mokkun. The similarities don't end there either; both come from families with a sworn duty to protect something. While they may differ in character personalities, the only real thing that separates them is time. Therefore, anyone who enjoys Kekkaishi is surely going to like Shounen Onmyoji.

poetax

Fighting demons, exorcising monsters, both anime have this and more. Young boys with a demon partner fighting invisible demons is the premise in both. If you like action and good old fashioned japanese demon fighting, both of these anime are right for you.

kenshina

Both animes are about young shamannic power users who \\\\defend a certain place with their power. Furthermore, if you liked the era and placement of the action, both animes are suitable for you to watch.
