Im a fan of manga/anime that takes place in early japan. Particularly involving samurai. It doesnt have to be even close to historically accurate, but im not into the highschool theme. so far: Shiguri, Rurouni kenshin, gin tama, samurai champloo, afro samurai, baki, kenichi, vagabond, tenchi muyo, shaman king, inuyasha, yuyu hakisho make the list

Hoozuki no Reitetsu is very unique. It takes place in japanese hell

am i missing any someone would recommend based on these?

it's not specifically samurai or history, but i see you have YYH so I'm gonna suggest things with a strong japanese folklore theme.
Mushishi (very low action but incredibly atmospheric and set in a historical but indeterminate period in japans history)
Natsume's Book of Friends (don't be put off by the name, it's very chill and full of ghosts and shit)
Bleach (it is what it is, but it might just hit that sweet spot. at the very least up until the end of the soul society arc)
Sword of the Stranger, a movie but a fucking good one, it's got everything you want but no ghosts
Ushio to Tora is modern day but it was a pretty good watch while it was airing. There's some history stuff and a lot of ghost fighting
not samurai at all but you ever watch Ninja Scroll? that shit was dope and I feel like watching it is a rite of passage
Dragon Ball (the original run with kid goku)
there's probably a couple others that I can't think of right now but I feel those are all pretty solid options based on what you said you've seen.

You got it, thats the wording im looking for

Bleach and dragon ball i left out because they are so well known, im already very familiar with both, but the others are all new to me. I will definitely check them out

Im a few episodes into Mushishi. Some eerie stuff, but in a spooky way not a violent way. I love it. Excellent character work too

I did a little digging and apparently the author used shinto religion as their inspiration with the "mushi" being "kami". Some of the tales are based in actual myth. Exactly the kind of thing im looking for and youre right about the atmosphere

Yeah Mushishi is really unique, and for me it's a top 10. If you're enjoying it, then I think you'll really enjoy Natsume's Book of Friends too.
On a different note, you may also enjoy Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Sounds like Saraiya Goyou / House of Five Leaves would go right up your alley.

Based more on Chinese mythology than Japanese, is an old isekai so it does feature high school in the first episode but that is not what it is about. In addition to the rich mythological world (you will probably be lost for the first dozen episodes with all the strange names being thrown around but so is the main character) it features very compelling middle age politics. It's fairly long with like 40 episodes but the main fault of it is that it ends somewhat abruptly without a proper conclusion.

The currently airing GeGeGe no Kitaro is pretty nice too.
Also, read Jigokuraku and watch Dororon Enma-kun Meramera, OP.

Dunno, I haven't watched the new one. Seconded for Jigokuraku though.

Check out Mononoke. Not the Ghibli movie, the unrelated TV show.
