Mushishi

Mushishi

It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.

Both these animes have a leading character who can see  mushi or youkai and their story on how they deal with the odds. They are both very well packed into a slow paced anime with beautiful soundtrack. If you enjoyed either of these animes then check out the other. 

chii

Both series have a similar feel about them due to the main character being able to see "creatures" that others for the most part can not. Both are episodic shows so some stories might be more interesting than others but overall you should enjoy the slow paced story telling with a supernatural touch. If you enjoyed one, you should enjoy the other.

snivets

Both of these shows have a similar peaceful atmosphere, and a slow pace of storytelling. Both main characters see spirits, and try to help humans/spirits for the sake of harmony between the two.

If you enjoyed seeing Natsume interacting with youkai while trying to solve his problems (usually brought on by the youkai), you should check out A Letter to Momo. Both share a similar somber yet gentle atmosphere. Natsume and Momo also share the same experiences of loss and loneliness. A fan of Natsume Yuujinchou could probably appreciate the story of Momo, her youkai friends, and the troubles they bring to her.

Both Natsume Yuujinchou and Gingitsune share a main character who has the ability to see supernatural beings. These characters, Natsume from Natsume Yuujinchou and Makoto from Gingitsune, help spirits, other humans, and themselves throughout the series with their special ability. The characters are quite different; Makoto is more bubbly and social while Natsume is quiet and outcasted by his peers, but they're both good-natured and try to do the right thing. If you're up for more Shinto-based adventures with drama and youkai in every episode, these two are definitely worth a try.

Hotarubi no Mori e

Hotarubi no Mori e
  • Movie (1 ep x 45 min)
  • 2011

While visiting her uncle for the summer, six year old Hotaru gets lost in the woods outside the village. Scared, the crying girl is eventually rescued by a gentle youkai named Gin, who is burdened with a curse that will cause him to disappear if ever touched by a human. Though they are barred from physical contact, the two become close friends. But after a few short years it becomes apparent that Gin ages more slowly than humans, so while Hotaru is growing up and changing, Gin remains in stasis. How will Hotaru adapt to the complicated emotions she develops as her and Gin's ages gradually converge?

Do you love series about supernatural beings that only one person can see? Both these titles deliver on that. Natsume is much longer (4 seasons worth) than Hotarubi but both give off the same slow paced dramatic feel no matter how many episodes there are. The only difference between these 2 shows is that Hotarubi has a romantic plot to it. Check them out!

RDG: Red Data Girl

RDG: Red Data Girl

Izumiko has lived a secluded, sheltered life in a mountain shrine since she was born. Having been raised to become the vessel of the Hime-gami, a mysterious force, the girl’s family has carefully planned and measured all aspects of her life - from the prestigious school she’s meant to attend to even her hair style. So when Izumiko is threatened by strange events, her father forces yet another obligation on her: Miyuki Sagara, a mountain monk descendant who’s fated to be her bodyguard. Unfortunately for the duo, neither is happy about the arrangement, especially Miyuki, who’s being exiled from his home city to guard a girl he considers to be useless. Can the two learn to find common ground in their search to understand the supernatural mysteries unfolding around them?

Both shows are centered around shinto themes. RDG is based off japanese shinto legends while Nastame is based off shinto mythology. This gives them a similiar vibe. RDG is suspenseful/mysterious with a bit of slice of life while Natsume is more light hearted.
