Charlotte
add
Points that are similar:-

1) Beautiful, vibrant and Blue animation
2)A plot with very amazing potential, that cock-sucked itself to death in the latter half, if not the first.
3)Bland main characters with no character development and a romance that was forced down your throat
4)Side Characters who were better than the main characters(Klein etc. for SAO, Takajou etc. for Charlotte) who had more potential but were insultingly wasted.
5)Beautiful Sound
6)Too many fanboys xD

So,if you enjoyed or even liked SAO, then you'll most probably like Charlotte. It's basically the same shit with more X-MEN feel to it.

add
I suppose its tiny bit of a spoiler, but both shows deal with time travel a fair bit. In particular, the main hero of both shows travels to the past for a chance to save the life of someone dear to him, while unraveling the mystery of what is happening around him. Both shows also contain elements of romance.

The pacing of the shows is a bit different, as Boku Dake goes a bit faster, and the methods of time travel are different as well. S;G has more slice of lifey moments, and the main characters are fairly different. Theyre both outcasts of a sort, but S;G's protagonist could be seen as more immature.

That said, both shows are very solid and if you like one, theres a decent chance youll like the other.

Ribbon no Kishi
add
- Both are old series with plot revolving around girls who were raised like boys; more specifically noblemen or knights.
- Lots of European inspirations in the design and story; castles, princesses, knights, and sword fights.
- Rose of Versailles if roughly based on the real story of Marie Antoinette, whereas Ribbon no Kishi is entirely fictional.

Ribbon no Kishi is shallower thematically and geared more towards younger girls with a distinct Disney feel (hardly a surprise considering Osamu Tezuka was a friend of Walt Disney and heavily inspired by early Disney). Rose of Versailles on the other hand is much darker and the style is more classic Showa era shoujo, drawing inspiration from the likes of Macoto Takashi with its detailed curling hair and eyes filled with what looks like whole galaxies.

Jousting and Flying Circus: Ao no Kanata and Walkure Romanze are anime based on a visual novel focussing on an unusual sport. Walkure Romanze is about jousting, while Ao no Kanata is about a made-up sport called flying circus.
Furhtermore, both anime have a very similar premise: a pink haired girl with no experience or whatsoever in the sport are challenged for a match with an experienced oujou-sama girl; however the newcomer seems to be very talented and beats the oujou-sama.

Walkure Romanze is more ecchi, Ao no Kanata looks more promosing so far.

Okay so these shows are only really similar in the body switching aspect.

Kokoro Connect is more dramatic and focuses on the personal relationships between a group of friends. It's a drama with comedy on the side. Yamada-kun is more of just a comedy show with plot on the side. Also it's worth mentioning that they both are based heavily on the supernatural and phenomenons that occur.

I really enjoyed both series but Kokoro Connect for the plot, Yamada-kun for the comedy.

Good puns, terrible puns, and lousy puns (or should I say osomatsu puns? Ho ho ho). I pity the fansubbers and translators. Both series rely quite heavily on Japanese wordplay, so it's quite a treat if you happen to be studying Japanese or know just about enough to pull through, otherwise you are at the mercy of the subbers.

Great comedy shows with little continuity, but plenty of random surrealist gag skits and dark comedy; full of pop-culture references and more self-aware than an average adult. The colour palettes are also pretty wild in both and the art style is quite different from the average anime.

Anime: Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna

Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna
add
Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna draws heavily on the symbolism and ideals presented in Utena. This is particularly evident in Oscar's character arc, with multiple direct references made to Utena's universe.

Both series feature a number of openly queer characters, and actively mocks and deconstructs the heavily biased contemporary portrayal of queer characters in media. This is done in a largely underhanded and subtle way in both series, so some level of critical thinking is required to access the contents presented at this meta level.

Both series feature extremely complex and sex-positive female protagonists. That is not to say they fit some generic 'strong and sexy' role; but that they are written as flawed individuals despite their determination, physical strength, and confidence. A realistic and laudable attempt at deconstructing of the femme fatale trope.

Both shows are actually really violent in content, but the violence is underplayed. There is no excess gore or unnecessarily stretched out death scenes despite there being plenty of both just outside of the camera.

add
This show has twintails. Sadly, that's probably not the reason why you would want Koukaku no Pandora, as android lesbians don't equate to super sentai twintail fighters.

What they do have in common, however, is this laid back comedy approach.
These shows aren't taking themselves seriously, which can be an okay factor, but definitely a warning to others whom aren't ready for boring repeating episodes.

Expect some comedy, some bad episodes, ecchi humor and lesbian fun, but nothing too serious and everything with responsibility. If you're into the one, you might get some fun from the other.
While they're completely different in story, comedy and characters, you might experience a similar kind of fun.

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru
add
Series with unique experiences are hard to come by and so it is best to seize the moment when it arise. Putting aside the brilliant music that obviously isn’t the main factor for the show’s success, these shows capitalize on the mysteries of daily life with intriguing cases that will keep you on your toes. The distinctive characteristic of the main detective in each series are indisputable with their carefree and lazy relaxing attitudes seemingly drawing attention.

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru focuses more on the gruesome side of crime and attention-grabbing phenomenon. The intensity of each upcoming case builds up and reveals something dark and sinister lurking behind the scenes. One would constantly feel love and hatred towards a character in spite of their intentions in a situation which is something this series has excelled tremendously on.

Hyouka is all about the light mysteries that pose no harm in solving but rather comes with fun and joy. The curiosity of a lovely girl is a thing to behold and everyday is like solving a Rubik’s cube. From attention to detail all the way to quirky jokes, this show will certainly put a smile on anyone’s face and is worthy of recognition. Besides the crafty detective work, romance does play a part in the show’s strength even though it was never fully utilised but overall a welcoming sight.

If you liked Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, you'll definitely LOVE Gakusen Toshi Asterisk. In my opinion, Rakudai is executed really well but for some reason, Gakusen really went pass my ratings in Rakudai.

These are the basic similarities but they are very similar in terms of:
- Setting: School
- They all have weapons
- Goal: Win or join a inter-school tournament
- They have hidden goals which are deep
- They both have action which includes powers and all that
- Harem!!
- Characters have the same good guy as MC, a tsundere heroine, a loli, and such. (Heroine is a princess)

Both anime share the theme of a club solving problems and often helping other students in the school with their problems. The problems in both cases are most often inconsequential, allowing the viewer to enjoy the feel of the anime, the humor and the characters, rather than worry about the plot or mystery. In both anime the main male lead is the driving force behind the solutions due to extraordinary skill of deduction (Hyouka) or concentration (SKET Dance).

Both are light-hearted parodies of common anime tropes. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun's colorful cast subverts pretty much every shoujo sterotype in the book. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou flips the script about young shounen protagonists with a series of tales about high school boys doing normal high school boy things (which is ironic given the fact that it's a collaboration between Sunrise and Square Enix--the first episode even makes fun of this).

add
There is a few things these two animes have in common, first its the mind blowing aspect, especially towards the end, where the anime just changes and theres so much mind blowing unravelling, it makes the anime really nice and interesting. Essentially, besides the common story and conflict, there is actually a more interesting and deeper story, usually caused in the past, prior to the events of the anime. The second thing in common is something related to the genre, but ill let you guys figure that out.

Besides these, there is good plot development for both, good fighting scenes and interesting characters.

If you like anime that isn't mainstream, but is very good, at least in my opinion, then Gargantia/Utawarerumono is a good choice. You will be mind blown when you finish these animes.

Both anime involve a group of people trying to kill each other (or in Akuma no Riddle's case, one person), and both have some comedy in them, but it being kept to a minimum in Mirai Nikki. And both anime also have romance, but the romance in Akuma no Riddle is only slight romance, and you most likely wouldn't notice if it wasn't there. And both anime also have one character being protected by another character who does all the work, but Character A is found out to be very important to the plot, even though they've done nothing.

-The story binds itself together after a while (Things are confusing at first, but everything makes sense later)
-Similar openings
