Though xxxHolic has far more comedy, both these manga focus on the world of the supernatural and the effect that spirits and youkai have on the human world. While Mononoke focuses more on human folly, and xxxHolic on fate, it may be worth your while checking out one if you liked the other.

Kieli

Kieli

Over eighty years ago, a great war raged over the natural resources of the planet. To assist in the battle, the bodies of fallen soldiers were recycled - with a stone heart made of a limitless power source, these ‘Undying' fought in the war, only to be hunted down after its end by the Church. Now, in the present, Kieli is an orphan who has had the ability to see ghosts, keeping her an outcast from her peers. However, when she and a ghost friend meet a strange boy named Harvey, Kieli discovers that she's not the only one who can see spirits. Curious and excited, Kieli now travels with both Harvey and Corporal, a spirit possessing a radio, on a quest to lay Corporal's soul to rest. Along the way she'll experience danger and touching moments, as well as inadvertently helping ghosts find their peace.

Both Kieli and xxxHolic contain a weird mix of the supernatural and humor. It's hard to describe, because so few series mix spirits, violence, and comedy! If you enjoyed one of these, the other should catch your interest as well. :)

If you like mysticism and the darker side of its power, you may enjoy Sengoku Nights and xxxHolic. Both of these manga contain supernatural situations and examine their consequences. Likewise, there's often a touch of humor at someone's misfortune in both series, so it's a pretty good match! ^_^

The easiest way to describe Yume Kira Dream Shoppe is to call it xxxHolic for children. There's another wish granting shop and supernatural situations, but it's much lighter. Still, if you'd like a break from the heavy plot in xxxHolic or you wished Yume Kira was more grown up, the other one should suit you just fine.

Pet Shop of Horrors

Pet Shop of Horrors

The mysterious Count D owns a pet shop in Chinatown. However, it's no ordinary pet shop: D sells exotic and rare pets that often have the appearance of a human in the eyes of their new owners. Since these animals are so special, each one is only sold if the customer signs a contract agreeing to abide by the instructions provided, or suffer the dire consequences, all whilst conveniently releasing the shop itself from any responsibility. However, when some customers break their contracts and a series of incidents occur as a result, this small business doesn't go unnoticed. Inspector Leon Orcot begins to investigate D, suspecting him of slave smuggling; but can he get to the bottom of the events surrounding the shop, or will he just be dragged into the Count's pace of afternoon tea and cake?

Both Pet Shop of Horrors and xxxHolic both feature episodic chapters with both supernatural and moralistic themes. Both look at the follies of mankind linked by supernatural punishment, though PSoH focuss on this more than Holic.
