Both feature high-school-age boys helping yokai solve their problems. Both have a fairly light-hearted atmosphere most of the time.

In my opinion these two are sort of under rated/unknown series (especially FnM) compared to the mainstream ones and end up not getting enough attention, even tho they both deserve more! They are different from eachother but yet have some strong common points: - supernatural genre is a very important theme to both, although Noragami tends to have more action while FnM gets to be more dramatic - creatures like gods, ayakashi, youkai, spirits and whatsover are daily routine for both stories (Noragami is specially mainly setted on gods) - both main characters have to deal with exorcisms, particoularly FnM, but while the usual term "exorcism" is treated  read more

Both series share similar comedy. Both are revolved around school and youkai. Both involve a separate dimension for the youkai to live in.

Both have a human MC who is surrounded by Yokai & ends up being friends with them. 
report Recommended by MJSpice
These two anime series both involve supernatural beings, which also could be referred as youkai or in the other case as mushishi. Both these series have a very unique atmosphere and pacing and are definitely a great watch.

Shows about yokai/mononoke/spirits. Mononoke is more serious and more experimental in art and execution with a drier sense of humour; whereas Fukigen na Mononokean is a simpler series set in high school with a more standard/accessible sense of humour. Mononoke is more or less entirely 'episodic' (comprising of 3 almost completely unrelated arcs), focusing more on the yokai's story, leaving the MC shrouded in mystery; whereas Fukigen na Mononokean definitely has a clear overarching connection between each yokai encounter in the form of the main character's story. Not quite the standard recommendation considering the stylistic gap ( though the colours in the Underworld of Mononokean does resemble the  read more

They both have an MC that gets sucked into the dealing with ayakashi/youkai because of a debt. Both MCs work hard at their new job while slowly getting to know the ayakashi/youkai and become friends.

If you enjoy silly comedies that focus more on entertaining you and less on keeping a consistent plot, then both these anime fit said criteria well. Both shows focus the interactions of a human with non-human entities, and how, eventually, he befriends them and realizes the existence of a world he was entirely unaware of. The bromances between both the MCs are cute too!

Master/servant dynamics, cinnamon roll characters, dealing with spirits (often helping them), BL subtext, priests, shinto themes, yokai, and an all around similar atmosphere.

Similar plot line with spirits, exorcisms, yokai, etc. Also similar with BL subtext (or more with Ling Qi), as well as master/servant dynamic.

Both are about Yokai/spirits and include very lovable characters!  
report Recommended by Dashie_the_ninja
Both anime have a powerful supernatural person and a good-natured but a tad stupid companion. The duos solve cases together involving non-human stuff.  
report Recommended by BlackIceAngel
Both feature light hearted comedy. Both present characters in a form of debt. Both are given a unique ability to see/hear things others cant. Just swap cats to yokai, and harem for friendship. 
report Recommended by Tibs212
Both shows have unique, stylish visuals and a provide a relaxing watch for the rainy days when you just want to contemplate life. Out of the two, Mononokean is the somewhat louder and more comedic show, but both balance elements of humor as well as drama.

Similar supernatural themes, as well as (arguable) BL subtext and master/subordinate dynamic.  
report Recommended by angelfish10
- High School setting - Mononoke/yokai/spirits - Teenage cast - Colourful - Playful dialogue Kyoukai no Kanata is more about the story about the people surrounded by youkai which needs exorcising, whereas Mononokean is more about the youkai's story and the people who deal with them.  
report Recommended by Lemon
Both anime focuses on the relationship between yokais and humans. Although Kamisama Hajimemashita has a more romantic / shoujo genre, both animes show what humans can do for yokais and vice versa. 
report Recommended by artrockerisPunkd
Both are slice-of-life series featuring supernatural motifs (youkai) with some comedy thrown in. In both cases the main characters are teenagers. In overall, they share the feeling of being flung between two worlds.

MC is similar in both shows He helps out with weird creatures The girl has a similar character to the owner of the mononokean The style is almost the same 
report Recommended by oryouohagi
Both are heartwarming and humorous animes that deal with humans who are able to see and interact youkai/spirits.  
report Recommended by DollFishu
Supernatural themes, with Japanese yokai and some other western myths as well. It's Shojo feeling and somewhat lighthearted and comedic.  
report Recommended by aella_antiope
Both are heartwarming slice-of-life shows with a beautiful male cast. They both have an episodic format in which the main characters help someone with their problems. Both have lighthearted and touching atmospheres. The settings for both shows differ a bit. Fukigen na Mononokean has a more fantasy/sci-fi setting because it centers around helping yokai with their problems, while Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori is set in a cafe where the staff helps people with their problems. If you enjoy one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

- Depictions of the Underworld/Hell in a very 'normal' way. - Mononoke/bakemono/yokai/spirits/oni/etc. etc. - MC with resting bitch faces. Hoozuki is a pun-heavy gag comedy set more-or-less completely in hell, whereas Mononokean is a light hearted SoL fantasy set between the human world and the underworld. Both shows feature a large cast of interesting and colourful mythological creatures though.

The personalities of Abeno and Ashiya remind me of Tazuki and Sora. Both series also have a cute mascot (Moja & Mii-kun) while featuring other creatures on an episodic basis. Both series are recommended if you're looking for a slow-paced, cute, relaxing series.
