Both are horror anime that have individual stories for each short episode. Yami Shibai and Kowabon each feature an art style very unique themselves which adds to the already creepy atmosphere. Also, each anime has an ED that breaks the tension from the show, but it's a nice way to calm down if you were extra frightened. Overall, both anime are very, very similar and good and quick watches.
