Booth shows start somewhat normal, until things start to get downright creepy. Both Mayoiga and Higurashi have an eerie atmosphere. Booth villages (Hinamizawa in Higurashi / Nanakimura in Magyoiga) are quite mysterious. The characters are also not what they seem at first.

Probably the most similar show: the uneasy atmosphere is present in both of us. Mayoiga and Higurashi are set in a mysterious village (Nanaki and Hinamizawa), filled with many legends (the Onigafuchi myth and the legends about Nanaki) and both of them include a creepy folksong. In both of them, all the characters try to hide their unclear past and in both of them, the main character is not from the village...

I have only watched the episodes out at the time of wright this but from what I have seen so far both this series and Higurashi seem very similar in tone.

While I was watching the first episode, Mayoiga was remembering me all time Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (also Shiki, but it's most paranormal). Both series happen in a world apart village, with very characters, deaths, mystery, the main characters isn't from this village, crazy people... If you like the "genre" strange villages, it will like you.
