Non Non Biyori is placed in rural Japan in a tiny town and focuses on the main cast's daily lives in school and out exploring the world around them. Non Non Biyroi sets a very calm and relaxed mood similar to Flying Witch. Flying witch is a coming of age story focused on a not-so-traditional witch who is sent off by her family and explores growing up and becoming an adult. Each series is slice of life genre with added comedy. If you enjoyed the pacing and atmosphere in either show I would recommend the other.

KiKi's Delivery Service is a fantastic coming of age story that is full of whimsical fun, drama, a little romance, and enjoyment for a large audience. Flying witch takes a much more relaxed approach being slice of life with some added comedic relief. These shows focus on witches who are becoming adults and being sent off by their family to experience adulthood with their companion black cat. If you enjoyed watching Kiki's Delivery Service I would recommend trying Flying Witch to experience a similar story line and similar atmosphere in each show respectfully.

Settings are different but the atmosphere same Very calm relaxing both are Slice of Life and Comedic Most of the time nothing really happens but the side characters are very unique and interesting

Both series are very heartwarming and both have supernatural aspects to it. You will have a feeling about exploring the world that's different from the usual boring human world (Youkai world in Natsume Yuujinchou, Witch world in Flying Witch). If you liked one of these, I recommend that you watch the other.

While Flying Witch is less gag-heavy and contains no fanservice, both shows contain fantasy elements, a mostly female cast, emphasize the importance of family, and are overall very easy and fun to watch. 
report Recommended by CatSoul
Both of these shows are very calm. They have soothing music, beautiful sceneries, and slightly quirky characters. Also, both take place in rather rural areas. Both could be classified as "healing" anime and they're perfect to watch when you just want to unwind and calm down, and the occasional (but more common in Amanchu) silly and goofy gags are sure to put a smile on your face after a long and tiring day.

Slice of life genre with a lot of loveable characters! Although, I do think that Flying Witch is still slightly superior to Amaama to Inazuma, if you enjoy the slice of life genre, you are for sure to enjoy both!

At the core of these shows is relaxing atmosphere. They relay on presenting someone mundane activities with touch of supernatural. These shows follow mostly episodic structure, although Aria has somewhat more noticeable structure and goal. 
report Recommended by opasnimiki
Both are lighthearted, relaxed, fun-loving shows that leave you feeling satiated. Some would make a point of calling them both Iyashikei (healing anime). Which is essentially saying both are chicken soup for the soul.

Chillax rural series with adorable country life titbits and small children who act like small children (they're even voiced by small children in Barakamon), and everyone else having designs that more or less fit their age. Both shows are about the someone moving into the countryside to train in their craft/trade. Barakamon is the more drama heavy of the two and has a faster pace and fittingly it's set on a sunny island in the south, whilst Flying Witch is set high up in cold, cold Aomori. Watch for warm and fuzzy countryside feelings (:

Well, to state the obvious, both shows involve witches. These are supernatural-themed animes with plenty of comedic reliefs produced by the same studio – JC Staff. Story-wise though, the shows are quite different. In WCW, the focus is on the fight between the good and bad witches over the possession of the male MC’s power. Whereas in Flying Witch, the focus is on the life of the female MC who moves out of home to the country to become independent by witches’ standards.

Both are slice of life anime with a carefree feel that you can't help but enjoy.

Both shows here deal with your every day slice of life, but with a touch of the unknown to lighten up the show. Watching Flying Witch will leave you with the same wholesome and charming effect that both of these shows manage to capture leaving you with a smile on your face as your heart gets warmed by it.

- Both have a main character with powers, and the people around them are ok with it. - Both are calming, relaxing anime. - No big conflicts. 
report Recommended by yumesan
Kamichu is similar to Flying Witch in the fact that both the main characters are high school girls and have supernatural abilities. In Kamichu the main character suddenly becomes a God, while in Flying Witch the main character is a witch.

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (both the first OVA and the second, called Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe) and Flying Witch are both healing, calming animes. Both rely on quiet character interactions and relatively small but meaningful occurrences to determine the story -- plot is not so important. The settings are different, but both pay a lot of attention to the natural world and its importance to daily life. Both shows will leave you feeling at peace, but also somewhat sad because you know they have to end.

This two shows have a pretty cool similarity, that i'd recommend you to watch if you like one of them. Flying Witch and Mahoutsukai Precure!? both retain the slice of life element were they both have tried to keep their witch powers hidden from others. Both openings are lovable if you watch it long enough that is. Although Flying Witch does not have a evil encounter like Mahoutsukai Precure!? does they both are pretty enjoyable if your the type that watches animes with little to no romance and shounen action this is the show for you.

Both anime series always eat in a cute a way, eat together with love. Flying Witch show is also steadily making me want to eat more healthy types of things lol They have similarities to the protagonist and friends around it. They're both slice of life but Flying Witch is a supernatural genre. The anime is pure, cute, calming & chill. You're in for a treat! They're both great show. Little unfocused, little short, but wonderful art direction, very chill. Aaaaaand, Flying Witch was wayyy better than Koufuku Graffiti! if you're anime type is Koufuku Grafitti, try Flying Witch. I'm sure you'll love it!

Flying Witch is about a girl, a witch live in town with her relative. This anime shows about her life after moving to the town with her relative. there's some magic stuff on the show and it's perfect if you want relaxing anime like Tsurezure Children. mind you there's no romance. but it's cute and cure your mind. This show is a slice of life with some witchcraft on it. all episodes will make you relax and refresh your mind. the animation is very smooth and very nicely done. perfect for all ages!

Both are relaxing anime with a similar approach into magic and witchcraft. If you want a slice of life, yet with a touch of mysticim, I recommend both. 
report Recommended by Kenzo170
Easy-going, soft feeling, slice of life anime for both of them. Rather than focusing on all the plots, twist and turns in a lot of stories these days, these two focus on a more straight forward everyday stories in a relaxing tone.

Very relaxed atmosphere as main character is getting accustomed her new enviroment.  
report Recommended by SirHonas
Both are supernatural slice-of-lifes set in the country. They are slow-paced and have some comedy every now and then. Personally I find Flying Witch more engaging, and I like the characters more. Mokke has darker elements to it, and the tone is less happy and carefree. If you're looking for an anime similar to Flying Witch but more serious, Mokke may interest you.

The characters give off the same vibe.

More flying witches in a really nice setting even if includes war.

Another flying witch, nice magic but no wars this time. A much more quiet and relaxed atmosphere all around. 
report Recommended by Flajavin
Flying Witch and Engaged to the Unidentified are bright and uplifting anime with cheerful and fun openings. I love that they both have fantastical societies that most people are unaware of, and being able to get a peak into what society could be like with these changes. They also have endearing and quirky characters which I don't want to say goodbye to when the series ends.

Both are slice of life. They are pleasant to watch, where not much goes on, but it still makes you happy to watch it. 
report Recommended by jopofosho
Although stories are quite different they both have the same tranquility. Flying witch is funnier than Isekai Shokudou but both of them will put a feel-good smile on your face. 
report Recommended by mandorallen
If you are looking for the daily life of different people in a fantasy world then you will like any of those two anime. The difference between the two is that Hakumei to Mikochi presents a entirely new world, while Flying Witch only incorporates magic, and other fantasy elements, into our world. 
report Recommended by JokerDBlue
Both anime are very calm, peaceful and are full of comedy. Both have a hint of magic/supernatural. In Fruits Basket, the supernatural is more of a main idea, while in Flying Witch it isn't necessarily the center of the story. Also, Fruits Basket has more romance to it, although it isn't followed through. Just a sprinkle of it.

The moment I saw the main female character I got Sankarea in mind, its very similar in drawing, personality and talking style, note both animes have completly different plot, sankarea consists in a zombie fanatic who wants to have a undead girlfriend and Flying Witch is a slice of life with a witch as the main character. Although the differences I think if you liked Flying Witch and like zombies you will like Sankarea. 
report Recommended by Guiaki
Both are slow-paced, slice of life with adorable, warm characters. Himouto! Umaru-chan is more of a comedy than flying witch. Both involves the theme of growing up and has a good sibling relationships. 
report Recommended by amaliachan
The anime are slice of life in modern day Japan where mages are seemingly accepted (more so in Mahou Tsukai, since many people don't know about magic in FW). The main character is a girl that can do magic. Mahou no Tsukai takes it in another direction with the MC getting schooled on how to use magic, while in FW the main character seems to do magic all on her own. The imagery in both anime is very nice to look at and the mood is calm. 
report Recommended by crumblebread
Both have to do with magic and with someone leaving their home and making another home somewhere else. The music for both is very calming and they have the same kind of lighthearted atmospheres. Anyone that likes one will definitely enjoy the other.  
report Recommended by slothspace
Both shows keep a very mild and relaxing tone, occasionally making jokes and misunderstandings. If you liked how calm Flying Witches was you should definitely check out Minami-ke. 
report Recommended by ExTemplar
Both focus on the topic of witch craft with a bunch of humour thrown in as well.

Both are slow-paced slice of life glorifying Nature that include beautiful magic phenomena and likeable -but not so developed- characters. 
report Recommended by Johnny-Jay
Both these shows have a similar countryside atmosphere and are very relaxing to watch 
report Recommended by Necromaru
Both series feature a young magic user becoming an apprentice, learning to be independent, and growing as a person. Both have a relaxing feel with characters that warm your heart.
