- mischievous and funny MC who is a supernatural entity (Yato is a god/ Hanako is a ghost) - girl MC who is 'bound' to the male character in some way - similar type of humor - romantic undertones in the relationship between the boy and the girl, with a slow development - great combination of comedy and dramatic/emotional moments

Both are set in school and feature boy and a girl as main characters, from which one of is a ghost bound to said school. Both will give similar vibes despite one focusing more on romance and other on comedy.

Both shows have their plot driven by urban legends

If you're into yōkai lore, you'll really love both Hanako-kun and Yōkai Watch. Not only are both shows about yōkai. They're also both mostly episodic with a new yōkai being introduced each episode. In both series the protagonist has to befriend the yōkai that are causing trouble for their classmates and family. (Well, just classmates in the case of Hanako-kun.) Both protagonists have a yōkai assistant who claims to be more knowledgable about other yōkai then he actually is.

❃ Both anime are about Yokai/spirits ❃ Both protagonists ask for help to the other main character and end up working for them to pay off a debt ❃ Both protagonists meet the other main character at school

have the same beautiful atmosphere and core.

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 ._.

- Essentially a girls' show; female target audience - But not overwhelmingly so. - Juvenile supernatural (youkai) elements - Faux-light-hearted-creepy-darkness-looming atmosphere - Multiple pairing casual(?) romance

Both shows deal with spirits, ghosts, urban legends and the exorcising thereof, and have a slightly creepy element to them. Both shows also have a young, enigmatic and charismatic title character whose past is shrouded in mystery and is hard to figure out in terms of what he's actually thinking and feeling. Both shows start off more episodic with a monster-of-the-week plot. The overall vibe and atmosphere I've gotten from Hanako-kun reminds me a lot of Muhyo and Roji as well.

If Soul Eater have a child, this is it. - same vibes (albeit hanako-kun is tad cuter cos it child) - same colorful and unique environment - supernatural stuff - both MC have a contract with a spirit

Welp, I can say, the shows is kinda same, but most of them not. Unlike Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun, the main character of Kyokou Suiri serial is a demigod. Both series is talking about somewhat of "demolishing" the exaggerated youkai(s).
