Both the series focus on the relationship between a kid and their mentor-guardian figure. Both the mentor and the kid grew with their interactions and become very close to each other.

two stories that tell about some sort of conflict in the world of spirits. central characters are mentor and his pupil, who don't get along at first, but develop mutual friendship as the story progresses. both combine tranquil natural sceneries and ghibli-esque vibe with martial arts action in urban setting.

despite obviously different age ratings, these two have nearly identical premise: as the humanity kept growing in numbers and expanding its domain, spirits were forced out of their homes. in modern days, some spirits try to peacefully coexist within the cities, the others harbor hatred towards humans. in both there's an organization founded by spirits themselves in order to preserve the balance. the central character is a human member of said organizetion, granted with supernatural powers, who ends up in a fierce battle against a group of powerful spirits wishing to take back what used to be theirs. both have amazing animation and directing of action scenes.
