Question Supernatural anime?

Well, Im finding some kind of anime like xxxHolic. I prefer the anime not to contain Horror. I don't really enjoy that. Something weird is fine with me too. I especially liked spells , summoning monsters and stuff. Comedy should be in it as well. Oh ya.. Rental Magica.. Its a nice anime

Well, if you liked xxxHolic, then you should probably check out its sister series Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE. After that, the various other Clamp series might interest you (Card Captor Sakura, Magical Knights Rayearth, and X).

That being said, I am not 100% sure on what you mean by horror, so I am unsure of what else to recomend...

Bakemonogatari is a unique take on the supernatural anime genre

Hi,

I can recommend Telepathy Shoujo Ran. In my opinion this anime series is underrated; personally I like this one since it contains a good portion of mystery/detective elements and of course super-natural happenings, additionally this series has alot of funny scenes with great comedy. Also the OP song is really catchy. I think many people are put off by this series because the basic character design and

The other one I can recommend is Tactics which also contains super-natural, mystery/detective elements.


Edit:

Also I remember there's also a super-natural themed anime which is also quite under-rated: Mokke. This anime is more about traditional Japanese super-natural phenomenons, like Youkais etc.. I don't it's super scary (I have never watched an anime that can scare me), even objectively. This show can also be catergorized as a slice of life series, so the pacing may be relatively slower than usual for some. Give it a chance, since it's actually quite good.


Have fun!

Supernatural as a genre is pretty broad. There's ones categored towards action, and theres others towards the more slice of life side.

Try Miyazuki Films such as Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle if you haven't already. They are light-hearted supernatural with some comedy on them.

My personal favourites as per "supernaturals" go is Natsume Yujinchou and Mushishi.

Going by supernatural alone, it's rather hard to get some anime, since most include horror of a certain degree. While I would love to recommend Rosario+Vampire, the anime is seriously offensive towards its manga counterpart, but the manga also has a darker tone to it.
KIBA was very nice, 51 action-packed episodes with a nice overall story.
If you're looking for magic (I take supernatural strictly to mythical beings crossing planes or people travelling dimensions where they exist) you can try Fairy Tail, which started recently, or something along these lines.

zombie loan is just way too short...could have been really good.

Another to add is Inukami

It's kind of "supernatural" but it's also funny as hell

Just suggested this show in another thread, seems it is one of those days

Shounen Onmiyouji is supernatural, and magical. Horror is very light, it is a bit of an emotional ride though. It also has some comedy in it. It is a beautiful show, and still in my top three.

Kekkaishi, which aired at about the same time, is much lighter, with alot more comedy in it, still very supernatural and magical though. Production values are fine enough, but not as high as in SO.

I heartily second Shounen Onmyoji and Kekkaishi, both underrated and are very entertaining supernatural action animes

Jigoku Shoujo resembles xxxholic in the bit where the girl grants wishes, though it may appear quite repetitive after a few episodes

For other spell summoning ones, try Fate/Stay Night, Ga-Rei Zero, Kaze no Stigma
