They both take a strong look at politics and economics of a pre industrial/medieval setting. It has interesting and engaging characters and a unexpected plot pretty much every episode. The main characters romance is often shoveled to the side of the main plot but still apparent and present during the series. Uses fantasy to enhance a story while maintaining intelligent and political facts and information about War,Economics and public perception. Ookamis Related works would also apply to this recommendation.
This may seem obvious but both heavily zombie based and action loaded. The thing is its hard to compare high school of the dead with a lot of anime since its unique since there's almost no survival styled anime. Biohazard (resident evil) tho is a movie based on survival horror in most ways. The movies deals with surviving a zombie filled airport and eventually develops a larger plot with the will pharma corporations virus/cure.
Hunters and Orphen share a very similar atmosphere when it comes to fighting creatures at least in season one of Orphen for sure. Both shows focus on a small group of people on a mission of one kind or another. They both have similar humor and battle styles as well as animation and even voices to a degree.
Very energetic main characters who's main goal is to be perverse with guys of there liking. Dimwitted but well meaning male leads and some interesting secondary girls to keep the shows fresh and entertaining. Lots of classic styled harem scenarios with one or two new twists on a very used genre.
Angelic females taking interest in a very plane and boring character. The main difference of the two is that one is more childish while the other holds a mature tone. There is obvious plot differences but for the most part the concepts the same. A Man falls in love with a angel.
Meadabots has a older feel to the animation with even less detailed art but the plot and characters are solid. Instead of monsters you got robots and instead of fighting evil digimon there's a crime syndicate and tournaments with other robots.
Rave is the short lived TV prototype for fairy tale, tho not actually but a majority of its influences are seen in fairy tale. From the Jiggle butt gang to plue the weird cone nosed dog its overly apparent. Also a lot of statues and pictures often have Griffon in them you know the small blue guy with big lips?
Having a similar concept but monster rancher is far better executed and has a stronger selection of characters overall. the monsters are much more in depth since they are each given personality's and the ability to talk as well as battle.
In relation to this anime its made by the same wonderful creator Rumiko Takashi so you will notice a similar drawing style and maybe a few familiar scenes. The difference is mostly in Maison Ikkoku has a lot more romantic developments than pitted rivalry's. One of the things i felt could have been more explored in Ranma was the romantic aspects of the show and when i found out that Maison Ikkoku existed i was instantly curious and after watching only 5 episodes i knew this is just what i wanted. It is nowhere near as long as Ranma so do not be intimidated to start it off, also unlike Ranma's ending they wrapped it up in a movie tho the movie adds a few characters that never made it onto the show.
This is set in the same town and share cross over story with it as well. Theres a new set of main characters with romantic problems just as bad as these two but there is a lack of aliens. It is mostly just teenagers who don't understand love yet. oh and a guy and his possibly little sister who might be his girlfriend eventually.
Another good game adapted into a anime, tho with a slightly longer and interesting plot line. The animation and sound are very similar but it has the same kinda tone to the whole show. Its not actually part of any game but its a interesting side story in the games universe.
