It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and...

Both series have a similar feel about them due to the main character being able to see "creatures" that others for the most part can not. Both are episodic shows so some stories might be more interesting than others but overall you should enjoy the slow paced story telling with a supernatural touch. If you enjoyed one, you should enjoy the other.

Both of these shows have a similar peaceful atmosphere, and a slow pace of storytelling. Both main characters see spirits, and try to help humans/spirits for the sake of harmony between the two.

Mushishi has a much animation and stories, although it involves less "human" characters. Mushishi has a more supernaturual and story feel to it than youkai, and that makes it all the more interesting



Kimihiro Watanuki is cursed with the ability to see evil spirits known as Youkai. Due to this power, the Youkai are attracted to him like a magnet, and each time he is close to being devoured.

xxxHolic and Natsume Yuujinchou are both about humans who can see spirits & resolve trouble caused by the spirits. Yuuko and Nyanko-sensei are similar guide-type characters, and threads of light comedy run throughout both shows. Similar content makes xxxHolic a good rec for Natsume fans.

Both Natsume Yuujinchou and Gingitsune share a main character who has the ability to see supernatural beings. These characters, Natsume from Natsume Yuujinchou and Makoto from Gingitsune, help spirits, other humans, and themselves throughout the series with their special ability. The characters are quite different; Makoto is more bubbly and social while Natsume is quiet and outcasted by his peers, but they're both good-natured and try to do the right thing. If you're up for more Shinto-based adventures with drama and youkai in every episode, these two are definitely worth a try.
