These interesting and unique shows feature a grumpy main character and the humorous and memorable creatures and characters from the underworld that he deals with.
Both are comedic ways to learn about japanese demons, while both are comedic, mononokean has some touching moments, so if you are simply looking for a laugh it may not be for yout
Both shows heavily feature Japanese mythology, with a very similar vibe despite their fairly different approaches to it. Hozuki no Reitetsu is more comedic than The Morose Mononokean, but both are enjoyable in their own way.
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.

Gintama is far more crazy, but both it and Hoozuki no Reitetsu share a similar style of comedy. They're random, fun, and overall just really silly. Gintama can get a little serious and even sad at times while Hoozuki shows no signs of that, but if you're looking for some good comedy and nonsense, you may want to look here.
Very similar style, animation and humor. Even the main protaginist is very similar to gintoki with a perpetual deadpan expression.
Both series have a very similar comedy style, with fairly ridiculous stuff going on in both. Gintama is probably the more crazy of the two, but both are very entertaining.

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!
both are comedies that have super natural elements and creatures and have characters that are very serious, almost ridiculously so, that abuse the other characters in some ways
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.
