Gugure! Kokkuri-san

If you're looking for anime similar to Gugure! Kokkuri-san, you might like these titles.

Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama Kiss

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 animes are funny and feature kitsune main characters, as well as, other yokai type characters. Although, Gugure! Kokkuri-san is more 'slice of life' and Kamisama (Kiss) Hagimameshita is definately 'shoujo' style. If you like crazy family antics and endearing characters, you will enjoy both of these.

I totally agree with the first person that did this reccomendation. Endearing characters and funny situations on both sides in a similar setting.

Despite the face that Gugure is not a romantic comedy (Like Kamisama Kiss) It isn't so "far out of reach" to find your self liking both of these animes. Gugure is about an elementary student named Kohina who lives all alone. One day she accidentaly summons a fox spirit, who ends up playing surrogate mother to this lonely, cup noodle obsessed, "doll" like little girl.  Kamisama Kiss on the other hand is a romantic comedy about a teenage girl named Nanami.  She accidentaly becomes a land god, and ends up falling in love with her fox demon of a familiar.

Both of these have similar supernatural elements to them, and protagonists with foxes looking after them. If you're looking for more laughs than romance, then Gugure is what you need. However if you find yourself in the oposite position then watch Kamisama Kiss.

Both series are about human girls living with spirits. They have slightly different takes on the same theme, but if you like lots of supernatural characters then I'd recommend this one to you.

These two series are very different in both plot and drawing style, but if you love fantasy with roots in Japanese lore, then you will probably enjoy these series.

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl who fell in love with the unrefined boy schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki, decides to be courageous one day and asks him out. Her feelings weren't conveyed properly, and before she knew it she ends up helping a particular job of his as an assistant... The series is a shojo manga boy comedy which centers around Nozaki, a high school boy that is a popular shojo manga artist, and has a story woven by very individualistic characters.

This anime would be equal in terms of hilarious scenarios. The characters are easy to love and the romance that is blooming throughout the show causes you to cheer for the main character.

All in all, Gekkan Shoujou Nozaki-kun is a marvelous romance comedy show that will make you want more.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both are fairly ridiculous comedies, with very little common sense involved, but some great characters. Sure, one of them is about manga and the other is about spirits, but if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other too. 

Hozuki's Coolheadedness

Hozuki's Coolheadedness

Japanese Hell consists of 272 subdivisions, and the demon Hozuki is tasked with making sure they all run smoothly. Calm and level-headed, he efficiently navigates Hell's internal affairs while his boss, the Great King Enma, is busy judging the dead. Although Hozuki has a soft spot for cute animals and is known for his love of gardening Goldfish Flowers, he's certainly no pushover. This demonic bureaucrat has a mile-wide sadistic streak that keeps his subordinates and even King Enma himself in check. Is Hozuki's iron will - and iron club - enough to keep the afterlife running smoothly?

Both episodic and focuses on supernatural themes. I also thought the main characters, and even some side characters, were refreshing in both of these anime, hard working and easily stressed kokkuri to hard working and strict hozuki, overall enjoyable to watch. 

Differences would be that Hoozuki no reitetsu took place in mainly non-existent, (or at least as far a we know) places, while though still unrealistic, Gugure was on earth, in Japan. Also, while Gugure is about the daily life and various fetishes of the characters, Hoozuki is more about daily life in the underworld when you work there.

I both found these to be enjoyable comedies (comedy ONLY) that offered some dark humor, and cute characters, with ears, tails, and horns!

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both series are ridiculous comedies that focus on Japanese mythology. Some fairly crazy stuff goes on in both, although I would argue Hozuki no Reitetsu is slighly more crazy. 

Gintama

Gintama

In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!

These shows are so stupid that they are funny. They have similar humor and bizarre characters. Gugure! Kokkuri-san has shinto, while Gintama samurai.

Noragami

Noragami

Yato, the supposed God of Calamity, is so far down on the Shinto totem pole that he doesn't even have any followers or a shrine to call his own and has to do odd jobs to make ends meet. Worst of all, his aloof and somewhat goofy personality has just cost him his newest partner and best holy weapon. When the down-on-his-luck Yato is saved by an unfortunate soul called Hiyori, he's forced to take on a brand new job - to turn her back into a human and fix her supernatural out-of-body experiences! Can Yato, a Regalia-less, miserly minor god, even attempt such a tall order? And is there more to him than his ridiculousness lets on?

Both Noragami are comedy-rich animes centering around otherworldly things.  The main characters are both young girls.  Although if you are looking for something a bit more serious, go for Noragami.  

Otome Youkai Zakuro

Otome Youkai Zakuro

In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.

If you liked the fox demon shenanigans in Gugure! Kokkuri-san, you will like Otome Youkai Zakuro.  In fact, in one episode they actually play the game that Koniha plays to summon Kokkuri-san.  Similar artwork and feel.  Zakuro will make you laugh just as much!

Both animes are incredibly funny, light-hearted, heart-warming and filled with lovable characters. Definitly give 'Shounen Maid' a go if you loved 'Gugure! Kokkuri-san'!

Both anime are about young girls who are cared for by mystical beings. They also have a somewhat similar sense of humor, though Kokkuri is much more gag based and Kumamiko is more plot driven.They both make you feel warm inside and laugh a lot, though Kumamiko is definitely more sweet and innocent.

In any case, their both anime that made me laugh a lot and smile!

If you liked Gugure! KOKKURI-SAN then you may also like Rin-ne because they both are similar in ways where there is a nonemotional female lead, comedic story, with distincive characters, and they both have to do with the afterlife(N/A). Also, they are both just fun to watch and make you smile.
