Both are battle shounen with a similar fast pacing, so if you enjoy either one of them for that, the other one ll also appeal to you.

Very Similar first episodes Both main characters are fighting to turn someone 'back into a human.' Shounen Humans fighting demons/vampires  
report Recommended by Kittytash5006
Ghouls and Demons fighting against humanity. Some of them are able to affect people and become demi-humans. Or so called - half human half demon/ghoul. Main character goes through traumatic incidents which changes his life. Both MC's are naive, into crying and having their perfect world which is soon broken and changed by the reality. Some good fights, action, soundtracks and animation.  
report Recommended by Hutai
Both main characters are pretty naive, sensitive and loving. They have a traumatic incident, lose people they love and understand how harsh life can be. Both MC's are pushed into training and becoming better with a higher goal in their mind.  
report Recommended by Hutai
- Both series take place in a historical Japan where Demon exists. - The MC has to fight and kill demons. - Both series has people who do demon slaying as a job.

• Naive main character, living in his own perfect world, trying to be a decent human being. • Both MC's go through traumatic incidents that changes their life. •They both train to become stronger, better, smarter etc. • Nagai has the intelligence, while Tanjiro has a sensitive nose. • Both anime have fight between humanity and demi-humans. Urokodaki and Satou have the same voice actor. Tosaki and Gyuu too.

Both are historical shounen about a boy who loses his family to an enemy, and his journey to train in order to get revenge for them.  
report Recommended by moeichi
MC are somewhat similar in character. Both are on an epic quest and posses the power to fight the threat of evil/demons. The plot, the overall style and even the scene after credits are very similar since both are made by ufotable and the same director. 
report Recommended by Haruni
Both main characters are kind, sensitive, intelligent and with their own little quirks. Super power and a super sensitive nose. Both Tanjiro and Midoryia have a trainer (Urokodaki and All Might), they go through lots of hardships in early year, but have decent development and become stronger.  
report Recommended by Hutai
Both MC are very similar. They both hunt demons and they both have the particularity to feel pity towards the ones who have been turned into demons. Both story are happening during the early 19th century.
