Uchouten Kazoku opens with Shimogamo Yakushibo, an energetically laid-back shape-shifting tanuki, giving us a quick rundown of his hometown of Kyoto. This is a city with a storied history of mostly-regular humans, proud tengu magicians, and oh, playful tanuki shape-shifters, of course and here, he tells us, there are endless quantities of amusement to be had. As the camera follows him deftly navigating the beautiful cityscape, he declares with conviction that while he is a tanuki, he's far too proud to be a mere tanuki and is instead one who passes his days admiring tengu and imitating humans.

Both series involves the same author Tomihiko Morimi who written novels that were adapted into anime form.

They have great humor and a small cast of insightful characters. Both series also follows a narration type of story telling and depicts the lives of the main characters.

There is a lot of dialogues with a mixture of both humor and drama.
Uchouten Kazoku and Bakemonogatari are two anime that are all about being extremely well-executed. Both feature brilliant characterization, wonderful art, and writing that skirts the line between comedy and drama in a way that really draws you into the lives of the characters.
