If you liked
Gegege no Kitarou (2007)
...then you might like
Youkai Watch

Both feature Youkai (Japanese monsters, spirits and demons), though Gegege is closer towards the original definition of scary. They each have a different take on Youkai, with Gegege being more traditional, while Youkai Watch has a more modern approach and setting. Gegege no Kitarou is a long-running series in Japan. Both anime are relatively obscure outside Japan, so it might be difficult to find translations. While Gegege is more about the lives of Youkai being what they are, Youkai Watch is about a human boy interacting with Youkai.

Cardcaptor Sakura
...then you might like
Kobato.

Similar artstyle (due to being from CLAMP) and design. Beyond that, both involve a world of make-believe (with involvement of supernatural beings with magical powers) within a realistic world. Kobato shares some similarities with Sakura, not only in terms of looks (Kobato looks like an older verson of Sakura with a different hairstyle), but part of her character such as cheerfulness. They are very loosely related at best due to these superficial similarities, but it is likely that both are enjoyable in their own ways.

Pokemon XY

"Gotta get/collect them all" theme and "monster of the week" themes. However it should be noted that monster battles are more action-packed and intense in Pokemon, while Monster summons in Youkai watch have less action and usually depend more on the Youkai's special abilities (e.g. possession).

If you liked
Kamisama Hajimemashita

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Both start out with a supernatural being meeting normal girl and giving her powers, although this is presented in a different way in both, with one departing after making arrangements for the heroine to have a place to stay, and the other remaining a source of comfort and guidance for the heroine. Both share themes of romance and fox-related (Inari) beings. Struggles faced with love are important parts of the story in both.

If you liked
Wagaya no Oinari-sama.
...then you might like
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Involves supernatural (fox-related beings) that live in harmony with humans. Wagaya is more towards slice of life while Inari Konkon is about romance. The supernatural beings Oinari-sama and Ukano Mitama are very similar in the sense that they are very protective of the main characters (two boys for Oinari-sama and a girl for Ukano Mitama).

If you liked
Gingitsune
...then you might like
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.

Both stories involve fox (Inari) shrine settings. It is the common place for people to go to. From the preview of Inari Konkon at least, it seems that both anime will have very beautiful scenery in it. Both anime are adaptations of their respective mangas. Another similarity is the reference to the deity in both shows. The deity in Gingitsune is not present, although he/she is mentioned. Inari Konkon has this deity (Ukano Mitama) present as one of the main characters. Gingitsune is slice of life while Inari Konkon is romance. Both however rely a lot on character interactions for the story. The main characters in both stories make mistakes but grow and learn from their experiences.
