Both have a lot similarities on the series: the main character are youkai, they're exterminating youkai(s) that have been too exaggerated on their (youkai) task. Based on appearing, they'll appear some time at afternoon-evening, AND THE MAIN CHARA ARE SHOTA. :V But the differences, there's plenty of them; - The place plot: GeGeGe is kinda random, but Hanako-kun is only on school. - Weapons for exterminate? I think so - And some of them that categorized as spoiler ._.

Both shows involve "spirits" and souls as the main component of the show.

While these shows don't have anything in common plot-wise, they have a similar origin: they're both manga from the 60s and 70s that got a "modernizing" reboot in 2018. "Modernizing" because while the story, characters, and pacing are kept untouched, they're both re-set to our days, updating also the conflicts and the criticism made to society to make it match with today's problems.

Both have this "childish" character design, Both have this supernatural theme and a human girl that follow the protagonist, Both of these two are based in a classical manga The difference is: Dororon is more like a comedy show, and gegege no kitaro is more a adventure show
