Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Both seem to have a cutesy art and all, but in reality they are much darker and cruel. Things like underage girls communicating with alien life forms and getting strange powers as a result.

Anime: Narutaru: Mukuro Naru Hoshi Tama Taru Ko
Both of these series have a cute exterior but are darker at heart.
They also have a similar feel to them and involve young girls/children and alien-like creatures that fight.

Anime: Cencoroll
We have children who interact with and use alien life forms for fighting; both are somewhat abstract and experimental.

Anime: Figure 17: Tsubasa & Hikaru
Yuri and Tsubasa are both very similar.
a) They are child main characters with not the same ages but yet very similar ages.
b) They both have supporting characters to help them conquer their difficulties.
c) both have to fight aliens or enemies as little kids. It's their importance.
d) both cry a whole lot especially of dangerous things.
These anime both came out in the same year but I'd have to say Figure 17 was slightly more of a darker theme than Alien Nine, which contains more uncomfortable stuff for children more than Figure 17.

Anime: Haibane Renmei
Alien Nine reminded me of Haibane Renmei because of the level of bizarre and weirdness each of these shows contain. Both are out of the normal comfort zone, and have a slice of life with an interesting sci-fi twist.

Anime: FLCL
Both are coming of age tales.
Fooly Cooly is about Males
Alien Nine is about females.

Anime: Musaigen no Phantom World
Alien 9 is similar to Musaigen no Phantom World in it's main plot setting. In Alien 9 they are in a school club that fights aliens off their school grounds aided by Borg their alien helmets, Musaigen no Phantom World is also about a high school club that fights phantoms and use their special powers to their advantage. Though each show has a very different tone, Alien 9 is much darker and physiological whereas Musaigen no Phantom World is much more lighthearted.

Anime: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon
Both feature young main female character crybabies. Yet they are airheads and have fear of battle.

Anime: Elfen Lied
The vectors are very similar to the borgu's attack. As the Azumanga-esque art style would suggest, Alien 9 is not quite as dark as Elfen Lied, but it can still be fairly bloody.

Anime: Bokurano
Both deal with a group of children thrust into dangerous and traumatic situations because they have been "chosen" to protect their world.

Anime: Rikujou Bouei-tai Mao-chan
Alien Nine has the same theme of grade-schoolers capturing aliens but with a more serious and slightly darker storyline.

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Both take place in a school setting and have similar character art. Both have bizarre situations based on the sci-fi elements in Alien Nine and the overall comedic elements in Azumanga Daioh. If you like the weirdness in either one, you should watch the other.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Both have VERY similiar protagonists, in that they are unwilling to do what they're meant to do, even though they have great potential.
Both are great looking series produced with amazing 2D animation. Emotional, touching, and psychological.

NGE has mecha, has a more layered and completed plot, has a symbolic ending, and is more mainstream and popular

Alien Nine only tells half the story, has a more honest approach with it's cast, subtly creepier, and is cuter.

Anime: Brigadoon: Marin to Melan
Both series have a young girl(s) as the protagonist who has to befriend an alien who will help them battle the forces of the evil aliens.

Both are also in a very cute stye that leads people to believe its a light hearted anime but both have dark, sad, and realistic elements to them.
