The art is quite different but the relationship between Sakai and Shoji reminds me a lot of Satou and Yamazaki. Both feature friends working together on a project. NHK is darker than Baka & Gogh, but both are funny and deal with human relationships and emotions.
Similar feel, humor, both have interesting art, both don't have predictable plots, both have bands. Basically you should read both.
