Synopsis:

Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.

Inukami!

Inukami!

The Kawahira family specializes in dealing with troublesome spirits with the help of inukami, strong dog spirits that take human form. Members of the family are expected to make pacts with strong inukami in order to fulfill their duties, but their family has a black sheep: the perverted Keita, who charges people for his help. His inukami, Youko, is dedicated to make Keita completely hers. Her favorite form of punishment for him when he strays is teleporting him into the city completely naked. He's been arrested for indecent exposure so many times that he's a jailhouse regular, and is considered an outcast by his family and normal society; yet an inukami of the highest caliber chose to be his partner?! Is there really more to him than perverseness?

If you look at the character builds for some of the characters they seem to be quite simular. For one the main femal character in both series have a harsh attitude. They always tease the main character, and always seem to help them out of hard places. Though both series have completely diferent concepts and genres. But if you like the way the characters are, more then likely you'll like the other series.

Kanokon

Kanokon

The timid, virginal Kouta is a new student at Kunpo High School; and while others in his situation might be a wallflower forever, Kouta has no such luck – he has attracted the attention of the busty Chizuru, who happens to be a fox deity! However, Kouta’s misfortunes don’t stop there; he’s also pursued by Nozomu, a wolf deity. Between being molested, propositioned, having his face shoved between mammoth breasts or witnessing endless panty shots, Kouta must also attempt to maintain his studies – even though all Chizuru and Nozomu want is to be the one to deflower him first!

In both of these shows u have an animal girl as the main charter. In Spice and Wolf, Horo is a 600 year old wolf that looks 15 years old. While in Kanokon, Chizuru is a 400 year old blond fox spirit that appears to look human. The shows have  differnt settings,  S&W seting is a traveling mechant who meets  Horo, a rowdy girl who loves to drink with a stong personality. Kanokon seting is Chizuru who finds a boy she realy likes at the highschool and she always puts him in sexuwal situations that are always uncomfortable for him. Both of these  shows are good for unquieness of main charters and how there lives changes when they are with each other and the challengs they go though together. So give these shows a try u might just like them.

Kemono no Souja Erin

Kemono no Souja Erin

In the war against neighboring countries, the Grand Duke’s warriors use dragon-like beasts called Touda as weapons. Touda are admired across the nation and villages take great pride in breeding them. Erin lives in one such village with her mother, Soyon, who is the best beastinarian in the country. However, life in the village is not so straightforward: Soyon is also an Ariyo, a woman of the Mist People - a race that is feared by humans for its mystical abilities. So that she and Erin can stay in the village, Soyon must flawlessly fulfill her duty capturing and disciplining the Touda; but while Erin wants nothing more than to become a beastinarian, she also feels sorry for the Touda and recognizes that there’s far more to them than meets the eye. Can Erin ever become an ordinary beastinarian when her deepest instincts tell her there is a better way to interact with the Touda?

Both of these anime have a similar setting, they both have a strong and smart female protagonist they are both rather slow paced and they both tell a more character driven story. All in all if you liked one you will definitely like the other...

The story behind Spice and wolf is similar to that of King of Bandits: Jing. Both animes feature a traveler in search of something and both main characters have an interesting traveling companion.

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...

If you really enjoyed the touching relationships and quiet, intelligent, even-paced nature of Spice and Wolf, then check out Natsume Yuujinchou. It also has unique characters with interesting backgrounds and revolves around the idea of the relationship between one boy and the spirits around him. I'd even say both Spice and Wolf and NY are equally good.
