Both are similar concerning their visual language in terms of character design, backgrounds and the overall mood. Also the powerful element of surprise which makes a prominent horror story is well implemented episodically by Takashima Tomoya, who is the director for both titles. Kagewani emphasizes UMAs while the latter deals more with the supernatural phenomenon but isn't lacking in monsters.

- Both Anime share a fascination of mysterious sightings of creatures in their own unique forms. - Both Banba and Ginko chase rumors of occurrences that are tied to finding out about their own sightings of mysterious creatures in both of their own respective series. - Both are episodic animes in someway that center around both of these main characters Banba and Ginko who travels from place to place and they usually wind up helping someone through certain situations and events. - Both are Atmospheric. - Even though both series have different art and animation, Both have their own haunting themes in someway.

They haven't really got anything in common with each other. But they are both shorts and are both "horror" anime from the Fall 2015 season. They also have unusual art and animation styles.

Both series with short episodes featuring unsettling creatures and the people who encounter them.

same artstyle, shares the theme of normal people encountering strange monsters although these are straight out monsters instead of ghosts and yokai, it follows a semi-linear narrative instead of an anthologycal one like in yami shibai, think of it as mushi-shi with more monsters.
