Both have seemingly normal male leads that get dumped into terrible situations that give them extreme powers that they may or may not be able to control. They then have to learn to deal with these powers and figure out what to do with their lives and dreams, now that they've been dragged into a mess of a situation. Touta(UQ Holder) is a bit more happy go lucky in personality than Thoma(Nanoha Force), but they both care deeply for their friends, and can kick some serious butt. Both series are based in the Universes of well established franchises, but rely very little on previous knowledge of those franchises. They both try to differentiate themselves from their source franchises, using different narrative styles and presentation. Overall, both are worth checking out, even more so if you have been a fan of the Negima or Nanoha franchises but have been looking for a change in pace to freshen things up.
Both are Tournament Toy Fighter series, where the characters customize toys to do battle in World Tournaments. Beyblade uses Battle Tops, while Gundam Build Fighters use Mech Models. Both were designed to sell products(ie: Very Long Commercials) but kept a consistent quality in story engagement to keep viewers interested. Don't expect amazingly deep stories from either, but do expect to have a fun ride with interesting characters, as long as you can keep in mind that both shows are aimed at kids.
Both female main characters get mixed up in the troubles of supernatural people/beings, while at the same time have to confront their inner troubles and discover who they really are, and what they are meant to do.
Directed by the same guy. Both are set in futuristic Sci-Fi settings dealing with What-If scenarios. Eve no Jikan deals with how you define being human, in regards to robots, while Sakasama no Patema looks at a scenario where there are two types of people that are affected by gravity differently and how they interact with each other. Both take a deeper look at how people "work" and interact with others. Neither should be missed!
Both shows take the "laid back" storytelling style to a whole new level. Instead of rushing the plot they prefer to guide you along by nudging you from behind for a walk through the forest of stories until you make it to the shining light at the end. Don't expect to be given many details about their worlds because it is left up to you to unravel the secrets.
Basically the same premise in both. Guy has an "imaginative" childhood, becomes ashamed of said childhood, switches schools to avoid being bullied, meets girl at new school that is currently having an "imaginative" period, guy inevitably gets mixed up in the girl's "adventures", and resolves himself to help her return to reality.
Putting it Simply, Girls with Special Powers fight Bad Guys.
Has a similar family feel, and the Main Character is also a seemingly average guy with a singular talent that can make a difference.
Week Kid want's to protect those around him. Ends up getting in tons of Epic Battles and becomes the Hero. They do differ in substantial ways but in the End you get the same enjoyment.
