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 have really short episodes and are of the horror genre. They have similar art styles that fit the story they are telling (both are episodic as well). If you enjoyed the horror-like themes in one, you will likely enjoy the other!

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.
