Sasami is a lazy hikikomori who'd rather be playing video games and sleeping than being a productive member of society, especially with a doting brother who waits on her hand and foot. But there's more than Sasami and her family than meet the eye – in reality, they are connected to the goddess Amaterasu and mysterious 'alterations' that occasionally change and threaten the world. With the help of three sisters, Sasami slowly tackles day to day challenges and puts a stop to alterations – and monsters – when they appear.
Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…
Both titles are incredibly gorgeous with unique animation and character designs - in my opinion both are also excessively slow and boring and esoteric and lost my interest. I do think fans of one would likely appreciate the style or pacing of the other.
Both have interesting artstyles and likable characters. Sasami-san has a weak start but don't let that fool you. The anime only gets better during it's run. Bakemonogatari has a more sensible artistic approach and relies more on dialogue but is genuinely good as well.
Although the 2 are quite different in terms of story line and feel, there are some similarities with character portrayal, animation styles (especially how text is used) and some of the idea's behind the characters (the 'Ghosts' in Bake and the Shinto gods in Sasami). Overall, they're both very enjoyable, and I'd say that they are similar enough to warrant a good recommendation.
Sasami-san and Bakemonogatari both are best described as eccentric, abstruse, and slightly bizarre. Both display little regard for plot intricacy, instead focusing on unconventional art and animation. With similar atmospheres and senses of humor, I think fans of either show would enjoy the other.

Both series pander to the otaku who is familiarized with a lot of different anime. While Binboungami makes more references Sasami isn't devoid of them.
In terms of plots both lean on the Shinto religion with and put a twist on it. While both series can be comedic about the twist binbougami! is more comedy central while Sasami is generally slightly more serious. Still both series can have pretty crazy plots sometimes.
Both are comedic series about japanese gods, Sasami is maybe more serious but these two are a good match

In both of these anime, one of the characters possesses the power to restructure the world but isn't aware of it, while the characters around him/her try to prevent such events.
In both series, the main characters have god like abilities and their powers impact the world around them in various ways. The other characters invloved basically attempt the keep the power of the main character in check and help out whenever their power gets a little out of control.

Humanity has declined over time, leading to shortages in goods and the beginning of a bizarre relationship between humans and whimsical, sweets-loving fairies. Certain mediators help bridge the gap between the two species, as the magical, surprisingly-technological fairies are known to create various items the townsfolk need, albeit at oft-questionable quality levels. One such mediator, along with her faithful silent assistant, adorable fairy Nakata and frenemies such as yaoi-loving Y, will navigate her eventful daily life, whether it's investigating a strange factory or trying to escape the pages of a comic book.
Both are comedic animes with a very different way of doing things than normal. Both with girls who are involved with some type of spirit. (Fairys in Humanity has Declined, and Shinto Gods in Sasami-san). They are both very colorful and feature unique animation styles. The humour in both animes is of a more unique variety than the average anime. Sasami-san has more serious moments, and than Humanity Has Declined. But both are mostly comedies.
