Synopsis:

Life continues as normal for Natsume - he still lives with the friendly Fujiwaras, walks home with his school friends, and spends his free time adventuring with spirits! However, as his encounters soon reveal, the relationship between spirits and humans is a delicate one and not always friendly either. As Natsume slowly uncovers the mystery of his grandmother Reiko as well as his own unique purpose, can he use the Book of Friends to reconcile the needs of spirits and humans?

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.

I guess that your first reaction when you saw this recommendation was: "wtf?!". But stay calm. I want to show you some similarities. Both of these anime tell the story of the guy who can see ghosts and isn't happy because of that: Natsume can see youkai and Ichigo can see spirits. They don't have many friends and full family (Natsume is an orphan, Ichigo hasn't got mother) but they are trying to help ghosts they met (Natsume is doing that all the time, Ichigo i.e. in first episode). Also, they finally got friends among ghosts. Other important matter is that both of them want to become stronger to protect people who are important for them and find their own purpose in life.

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!

Both anime are about the youki and their inherited powers. Both have a very good storyline and interesting characters that help them along.

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.
