Amane has a unique power: if she knows someone's true name, she can control his or her spirit. Because of her unusual stoic attitude and suboptimal social skills, she is seen as creepy by her peers and has a hard time making friends. The only "person" she really talks to is actually her guardian in disguise: Hyoue, a dog-demon, who feeds off of humans' life energy. Amane "feeds" him by kissing him in public, which doesn't with help her public image. Amane and Hyoue must keep their powers a secret while fighting the evil spirits they encounter.
Kagome was just a normal girl, until one day she fell into a well that brought her to feudal-era Japan. After encountering hordes of demons and discovering that she's the reincarnation of a priestess, Kagome must now journey to protect a sacred jewel from evil with the help of a half-demon named Inuyasha. Along the way they make many enemies and friends, and travel between the modern and feudal eras.
Both of these titles show a unique relationship between a human and a demon. The monsters and evil spirits they encounter can be scary, but both manga leave room for humor and romance.
If you like humans that look like dogs Inuyasha and Her Majesty’s Dog are the series for you. Both feature the male lead being a dog demon who is in a relationship with a female human character. As they encounter monsters they have to battle them while building their own relationship together.
They're both by the same mangaka and they have a supernatural theme. The heroine is a high school girl who has a special ability and uses it to exorcise spirits and deal with supernatural phenomena.

While the stories are very different, the tone is a lot alike towards the end. People are struggling with their romances, and are worried they can't be together. There is pressure on the characters from the societies they belong too, and even their lives are threatened.
Amane and Sei have really similar personalities of being kind and gentle but possessing great inner strength and determination.

There are similar themes of facing one's duty herself vs relying on one's friends.
Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!
Both of these manga remind me of eachother, but not just the fact that they are about demons and supernatural. In Kamisama Hajimemashita, Tomoe is Nanami's familiar, and in Her Majesty's Dog the Amane tames Kyohei. They also have to do with the main male defending the female lead throughout the story. Both are good reads
