Both Mononoke and Gankutsuou have extraordinary, jaw-dropping colours, and have a really mysterious and unique character in the main role. If you liked one of these series you should give the other a try.
Via the use of beautiful art nouveau animation styles, Mononoke influenced more so by classical Japanese designs and Gankutsuou using photoshop textures, a similar end result is found. Here we have two uniquely designed visual delights, completely contradicting some of the horrific themes explored, but somehow making it work that bit better. Although Mononoke is based in the past and horror themed, Gankutsuou a thriller set in the distant future, they both revolve around striking fear into those guilty of sins in a round about way. You can also find similarities in the main characters, the Medicine seller & The Count have a sinister mysteriousness about them, intriguing to watch bring out the worst in people using very well executed, psychological manipulation.

If you like stories about exorcism and vanquishing evil demons of Japanese lore such as in Mononoke, Ayakashi Ayashi adds a somewhat interesting twist on the whole thing, both in terms of the era it takes place in, and in the style of exorcism the characters use.
Although the tempo of the two shows is very different - Mononoke takes its time to tell a tale, whilst TIAA revels in moments of unadulterated action - both shows will appeal to a similar group of fans. If you enjoy a period tale with a good twist of the fantastical, all presented neatly in a package of superb animation, then TIAA and Mononoke will appeal to you.

NY is very lighthearted, esecially in comparison to the dark and grim Mononoke. But if you like the fantasy of either of these anime's kind, I'm sure you'll like the other.
