In the town of Sakurashin, demons and humans live together in harmony; and to help transition its new members, the Youkai Life Consultation Office provides support and guidance. Its members contain mind reading, cat-eared Ao, strong and beautiful Hime, conjurer Kotoha, and Akina - a human with the ability to vanquish the souls of harmful demons.

Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?
If you liked one then you'll like the other because they both feature similar art styles as well as character designs. Both feature things of the supernatural nature though in Yozakura Quartet the supernatural things is more open about it where as Durarara is more subtle about it. Both plots are interesting and at times funny.
In the rural town of Ayukawa, humans live side by side with monsters of different races. Though they appear to be human, these monsters have special characteristics such as the abilities to change shapes, to grow claws, to blend into walls and many others. Hatoko, nicknamed Petoko, is one such monster from the Petopeto race; she has an unfortunate tendency to, quite literally, stick to those who make contact with her. One day, she sticks to a boy named Shingo as he tries to stop her falling into a pool. During their enforced togetherness, Shingo begins to like her, but Petoko worries about whether she - as a perfectly designed trap for male humans - can ever be truly loved...
Though petopeto-san lacks battles and superpowers and focuses more on the slice-of-life/comedy part, both anime deal with the issue of the coexistence between human and youkai and the effort to find a way so they can coexist peacefully.

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.
in my opinion these 2 are alike in a few ways, in both there are youkai (demons), spirits, gods and humans with some superpowers. in Yozakura Quartet there is an onmouyji type guy only he doesnt use different spells and stuff, his only power is being able to send youkai back to their world.also in both anime there are youkai that are evil, youkai that are kind of neutral and youkai that are basically good guys and help fight the bad guys.the only big difference between the 2 shows is the setting, Yozakura Quartet is in a modern time setting and Shounen Onmyouji plays out about a 1000 years ago.

If you liked one then you may like the other because both have an interesting plot with at several moments taking on a more humoruos tone to keep things light and funny. The characters for each series are interesting and bring there own personalities to each series. Each series also has a nice sound track.
