A youth, due to various circumstances, is on an aimless journey around the world they live in. The series tells the stories of their adventures and the day to day lives of the people they meet.

Understanding and treasuring lives of living things as well as non-living things. These two journeys show us how we shouldn't take things for granted and how precious things will become which we only realized it when we are desiring it. You should walk with the protagonist(s) and observe their slow-paced journey. Each episode is carefully pieced and progressed to arrive at a final 'destination'. They have a lot of similarities although in a different world concept, so take your time and enjoy the two shows.

Both of these series have filled me with a desire to explore the world. I love finding out about each new layer of the Abyss, and all the rules and dangers that come with it. I also love seeing each new country shown by Kino or Shizu.

These two shows both sport concepts about exploration, as well as some gray moral areas

Both have young protagonists adventuring the world with a weird companion. The story structure is similar in that they both have self contained stories that are resolved in one to two episodes but Kino no Tabi is more serious.

They both have beautiful world building, and gorgeous, vibrant animation. Both tend to be quite philosophical at times (of course, Kino no Tabi more than Mahoutsukai), and have a very serene feel. Even though they're different in a lot of ways, they share the same sort of atmosphere, and are both about seeing the beauty in a confusing and often painful world. There is a lot more character development and overall plot in Mahoutsukai (Kino no Tabi is episodic), but if you like one, I'd encourage you to give the other a try. XD

A guy, a vehicle, a journey. So similar yet so different. What I find interesting is that the shows represent not so different protagonist, they are both pretty distant initially and they don't let the environment around influence them too much. For some reason tho, even if they react very differently to things that happen during their journey when I think about what I remember about those series, I get a similar feeling. I think this is due to the fact that they act very differently, their story is different and the feeling they and the emotions they experience are different. But as I viewer I  read more

They both have that slice of life episodic feel. Meeting different regions of people. Not having much of a backbone of a story but the story of each encounter.

I guess I'll reiterate my recommendation from the original; Both revolve around traveling, gunslinging and touches into philosophical stories about the human condition. In a world that can be cruel, and yet beautiful at the same time, both shows do a great job at portraying this concept. Where henceforth; "The world is beautiful because of the people you meet along the way. They are what shape the world that we live in".

Exploring a new world, which follows different rules from ours, in an episodic format is what the two series are about. In Hakumei to Mikochi we are introduced to the world of small creatures(everything from ants to 9 centimeters tall humans) and in the meantime Kino no Tabi presents us a world with a lot of different countries, each with it's own philosophy on living a good life.

They are similar in aspect that both are adventure anime in which the main 2 characters go from country/city to country/city, meeting new people on their journey. The biggest difference between the two is that Spice and Wolf also features a romantic plot between the main 2 characters.

They give off the same vibe, it's hard to explain but there's a new story episode, both have young teenagers taking a responsibility due to hardships through their childhood. If you like one you'll probably like the other

Kinos journey is more about a young girl and her motorcycle buddy traveling from city to city in order to understand the world more clear. Somali is about a young girl traveling with a golem who she calls her father. The golem travels from places to places in order to find humans and return the girl back to her parents. Throughout both series, they both carry relaxing vibe, beautiful scenery, heartwarming and heartwrenching themes. They meet many different people in their journeys and make great connections, then move on to the next city leaving a bittersweet ending each time. If you like one, you'll like  read more

Just to name some similiartities from the top of my head: - Both main characters have a talking companion (Hermes, the motorcycle in Kino no Tabi and Chamber, the mech in Suisei no Gargantia). - Both worlds have their populations live in enclosed spaces with different rules and world views (Countries in Kino no Tabi and Fleets in Suisei no Gargantia). - While both anime have some fight scenes, the plot mainly revolves around the life-styles of the people in the countries (Kino no Tabi) / on the fleets (Suisei no Gargantia).

They both are about the main character who travels the world from city to city, place to place, in order to see what the world is like outside of where they once belonged. They meet new people along the way and learn of their cultures and history. Both seems to be very interesting and have emotional stories to tell
