The protagonists are given a mysterious power that allows them to repeat a portion of their life which is used for their own selfish desires. In the end though, they learn a very important and powerful lesson. Both shows even have a nice romance on the side! Though, Tatami Galaxy has a more unique style (both in the artstyle and execution of plot) while The Girl Who Leapt Through time is a bit more traditional. Also, Tatami is a bit more of a fun watch compared to TGWLTT which is a bit more serious throughout. Nevertheless, if you felt an intense amount of satisfaction after completing one of these series, the other will be able to provide you with the same amount, as long as you don't have a strong preference in the style of an anime.

The first thing I noticed was that Himuouti! Umaru-chan and Gugure! Kokkuri san is that have a similar title, but that's obviously not the reason I recommend watching them

- They're both light hearted comedies, so don't expect any serious drama or depressing scenes in either of them
- The female protagonists have a chibi like form
- The male protagonists are responsible for taking care of the female protagonist
- The female protagonists are a bit extraordinary when it comes to their ways of living

Both the manga have a protagonist who is initially aimless. But he discovers a passion and from then on the story takes off.
Both stories show how one has to struggle to succeed in a profession and that this struggle is what makes success so sweet. In the end, we'll be happy if we keep chasing our dreams. Also, friends can help a bunch at times!
I highly recommend both beck and G Senjou Heaven's Door.

Okay so we have two light series that anyone can enjoy because they are both just absolute random. They both use comedy in similar ways in the sense that it all fits into its random storyline. The main reason I have recommended these two is that it is about two groups of girls doing random nonsense that makes people laugh.

For a start they are both about idols who are trying their best to become some of the top. They also both portray the fact that they need to work to get the way the want to be. Like I have mention in some of my other recommendations for Aikatsu, Aikatsu is much more futuristic compare to some of the other idol anime with all the technology they use to change clothes...and so on but still I think that these are both quite good. (Also Aikatsu can be seen as slightly more childish compare to anime like The Idolm@ster)

Both anime are extremely fast-paced and addicting, and both feature peripheral, but still decently well-done thematic explorations, with Death Note delving into things like overly simplistic morality, and Kaiji emphasizing on themes relating to status and wealth, and demonstrating what people will do survive.

Samurai Flamenco
add
Both share: cute characters, ordinary beginnings that create a false sense of comfort, decent action, (sometimes) deep introspection of key characters, twisted themes, unexpected tone shifts, and a more-or-less successful deconstruction of their original genres.

Both Madoka and Samurai Flamenco are decent deconstructions of the magical-girl and super-hero genres respectively, but Madoka is much more focused and consistent in it's analysis of narrative/character tropes. Flamenco (unexpectedly) goes fairly deep into some of it's key cast members, even more so than Madoka at times, but the constant shift in character responses/genre/themes made Flamenco's narrative far less believable and effective than it could have been, in which case Madoka is certainly the superior of the two. But don't write either off, give them both a try.

Both shows involve a group of girls who hang out, eat snacks, and drink either tea or coffee. They are both slice of life shows, so they focus on the character interactions rather than an active plot. I first connected these shows in my head because in K-On!, Yui has a memorable performance as a tree in a play and in Gochuumon, Chino says that she once played a tree very assertively. There is a slight difference in setting between the two shows. K-On! takes place mainly in a school clubroom, while Gochuumon takes place in various cafes. K-On! also has a musical component that is not present in Gochuumon. Personally I thought Gochuumon was more consistently funny than K-On!, but both are enjoyable and worth watching.

In Sabagebu the narrator talks about the anime from time to time, and in Kitakubu the characters frequently discuss how they are a part of an anime. There is also action in both shows, though there is more in Sabagebu since it's a show about girls with guns. Both shows are entertaining and worth a watch.

Both shows are very funny, although their humor is quite different. Mikakunin involves mostly comedy among the female characters, while a large part of the humor in Seto is due to the male characters. Despite both shows being about an engaged couple, neither focus too much on romance and rely on comedy instead. They both do have some romance, but that is not their primary objective.

Kitakubu is about girls in the Going Home Club, which like many other school club anime means that they just do random entertaining things. The reason I first connected these two shows in my head is that Shino in Kiniro Mosaic says in one episode that she and Alice are in the Going Home Club, though they are not in fact in any clubs. Kitakubu is more of a gag anime, so the humor is fast paced and often outrageous but quite funny a lot of the time. Kiniro Mosaic is more about the relationships between the girls and is more relaxed, but it is also very funny. Both shows are enjoyable. Personally I liked Kiniro Mosaic a bit more because it was consistently funny while there were a few slow episodes towards the middle of Kitakubu.

(NOTE: This entry keeps messing up no matter what I do. I am recommending KYOUKAI NO KANATA for fans of NORAGAMI, not the other way around.)

While Noragami is undoubtedly the more popular of these two, both are supernatural action series featuring a distinct variation on similar subject matter: battling against creatures unseen by the general public and focusing on those charged with the task of defeating them.

Kyoukai no Kanata a.k.a. Beyond the Boundary has perhaps slightly more slick animation, but just as humorous and action packed; with great characters and slice of life segments that don't feel much like filler.

It's an easy recommendation for any fan of the former.

Both are OVAs where the sole male character wins a bunch of tickets to go on a trip, allowing the mostly female casts to travel somewhere. The Non Non Biyori OVA focuses on the preparation for the trip and ends before they reach the destination, while the Mikakunin OVA shows the whole trip. Both are enjoyable, although I preferred the Mikakunin OVA since the Non Non Biyori OVA felt incomplete.

Both are comedic slice of life shows with mostly female characters.

Gochuumon does not really have any romance, aside from some yuri undertones. Romance is a feature of Mikakunin, though it is not as prevalent as you might expect given the name of the show. Both are very enjoyable and really quite funny.

Both shows are slice of life with a very relaxing feel. The comedy is excellent and there are few boring moments. Both are also heavily character-driven, and all the main characters are girls. There are some slight yuri undertones, as is typical in this genre. Chino reminds me some of Ren-chon, especially in their comedic deliveries. Non Non Biyori takes place most often at school and in the countryside, while Gochuumon takes place mostly in various cafes. Despite the difference in settings, the atmosphere is pretty much the same, and they both provide a heartwarming feel that is sure to make you smile.

Brynhildr features a similarly gritty tone and dark atmosphere with characters having escaped lab experimentation, sporting special abilities, and becoming pursued by others sent by said lab to kill them.

Although the former is a bit more serious in tone, it can be quite grizzly at times and there's no shortage of supernatural elements. This series will probably not shock you as much, but is eerily similar in many ways.

Also, it's relativity short length makes for an ideal dark/supernatural afternoon binge-watch!

Both are lighthearted SoL shows with comedy and a little bit of character development thrown in. Joukamachi has a few slightly darker points, but both generally try to keep an upbeat and happy atmosphere.

There are romantic subplots in both of these shows, but the romance is much more prevalent in Working. Joukamachi tends to delve into themes such as family and friends, putting romance to the side save for a couple characters.

Working has no supernatural elements, while Joukamachi has a very central supernatural core with the royal family's powers.

Generally, if you liked one of these shows, you'll find something very similar between them.

Both shows feature a mystery of who is the traitor in the group?

In Rokka, it is a fantasy series with emphasis on some adventure, magic, and battles. It is one big mystery across the season.

Danganronpa is a school setting with multiple small mysteries with a final reveal.

Both also feature the main protagonist pushed to their limits, and both MCs are also reasonably smart though still just the average person in their group.
