Natsume Yuujinchou, Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin Recommendations
This is a show about a main character who can communicate with spirits whose behavior is so far removed from humanity's understanding that even he struggles with it. Buuut they all think he's actually his ancestor, whom they loved. And he uses his exhausting abilities to the benefit of both races. <--- this description works for either anime. However, Natsume has more endearing characters who make more logical appearances.
Teen with the special ability to see/communicate with spirits and tries to help them out
~ Both have special abilities to see something that are not others normal people can see. Yes supernatural, spirits.
~ Especially the main character can have interaction with them. Miyako Arata(Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin) and Natsume Takashi(Natsume Yuujinchou)
~ Both have dealing with different things.
Natsume Yuujinchou focused on "Youkai", and Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin focused on "Anothers" (which means Angels, Devils, Yokai and Fairies)
~ both have cat spirit too :3
Both main characters can understand spirits and they try to help them. Also both shows have heartwarming moments.
Both are about the supernatural beings.
There is a similar setting here too. Both MC have a family past that is connected with their present encountering of the supernatural. This setting is the main context of Natsume. While in Mayonaka, it is important, but it does not centre around it. Mayonaka have a concoction of settings in its story concept that actually takes a different direction than Natsume.
Natsume takes on the relaxing, lighthearted vibe as is a slice of life, while Mayonaka is a little more intense and mysterious (well detective being one of its story elements)
