Looking for a certain type of anime
I came across many titles so far: some were very colorful, some were very atmospheric, some played a lot on shadows etc

What i was interested in were titles like "Spirited Away".

Mhm, let me explain better: i liked the outstanding animation of Spirited Away, all those weird demons and the overflowing fantasy.

Similar vibes can be found in the opening of "Dororon Enma-kun mera mera" where, in the beginning, weird demons land on japanese stands.

I'm looking for that kind of atmosphere: overflowing and colourful fantasy with many details and different types of "characters"(or demons, whatever).

Sorry but i didn't know how to research this

I've already watched Howl's moving castle.

The two television series that most feel like Miyazaki films to me are Junni Kokki ("Twelve Kingdoms") and Seirei no Moribito. The first has a much wider array of mythic beasts; Moribito has a few but we do not see them often. Both are beautifully illustrated, and both are in my top-ten list. The novelist who wrote Moribito also penned Kemono no Sou-ja Erin, where mythic beasts play a more significant role. It is illustrated in a more "childlike" style, though, which may not be to your liking. (The fansubs for Erin include a better translation than the Crunchyroll version.) You must be patient if you Twelve Kingdoms; the lead starts off as a whiny school-girl but grows more than any other character I've ever seen in anime. It takes half-a-dozen episodes or so for things to really get rolling. In contrast, Moribito has one of the best initial episodes I've ever watched.

The "apothecary" stories in "Bakeneko" and Mononoke all concern demons, but it is more psychological than fantastical. The mononoke in this show are conjured up by the evil deeds of the humans they haunt. The apothecary must interrogate the victims to identify the three characteristics of each demon that he needs to slay it. This show has a remarkable style of illustration that sometimes seems like a cross between classical Japanese painting and Yellow Submarine. It also includes my favorite male seiyuu performance of all time by Sakurai Takahiro as the demon-slaying medicine seller.
Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) I didn't see any of these on the list atop your other thread.
