Gin no Saji
...then you might like
Barakamon
Slice of life series with a taste of realism. Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon) and Barakamon shares a number of similarities. The main male protagonist is abruptly thrown into a new environment where he isn't used to. In the beginning, they cope with their new living conditions. However through experience, they are able to earn the respect of other characters he meets. The relationship dynamics are perhaps the most important element as the MC blends in with others while developing his own character. Recommended for all ages especially those seeking a realistic slice of life.

Shiki
The whole time I was watching Shiki I couldn't help but think of ghost hound. While they are not similar plot wise, they both have very similar settings, ghost hound also contains mystery and some horror.

If you are looking for an anime similar to shiki atmosphere wise then ghost hound is a must watch.

If you liked
Crimson Spell
...then you might like
Koori no Mamono no Monogatari
Both are about a demon and a special human boy travelling around in a "dark ages"-like time with demons, princes, sorcerers and stuff. While Koori no Monogatari is "only" Shonen Ai, Crimson Spell is definitely Yaoi. I kind of needed my time to accepted it and to love them. But only compared to Blood & Ishuca from Koori, which whom I fell in love straight away. I personally love Koori a lot more, but I can't deny a lot of similarities! Even in the looks: The (seme) demon/sorcerer has silver long hair (though Blood is always cutting it), the (uke) human boy short black hair. One more thing, the uke in Crimson Spell is a lot more seme-ish. He fights really well and can be very dangerous.
