I found two anime series when searching for "matchmaker" at anilinkz.
One is titled "Enmusubi no Youko-chan" and appears to be the one I've
been following on Crunchroll. The other is titled "Fox Spirit
Matchmaker". The anilinkz info shows they are "ongoing", have different
airing dates 2016 and 2017 and a different number of aired episodes so
far.

The plot descriptions read nearly the same. Can someone explain if one
is a rip-off of the other or what's going on between the two versions?
Is it normal to run across two series with what seems to be the same
story line being shown concurrently (that's my impression from the
description)? I could understand if one were a re-boot of the previous
series, but that doesn't seem to be the case for these two.

I would guess that it's mainly just two different paths and languages.
_Fox Spirit_Matchmaker_ is a Chinese anime (2015) that got a separate
Japanese dub and minor changes to air as _Enmusubi no Youka-chan_ in
Japan(2017). It sounds like 2 13-minute Chinese episodes were combined
for each Japanese episode.

Evidently there are sequels and movie versions in the Chinese form but
I suspect what you're seeeing is two versions of the same show.
