Momo e no Tegami
...then you might like
Omoide no Marnie
Before watching 'When Marnie Was There', I would have described 'A Letter To Momo' as the Ghibli film that Ghibli would never create: a film grounded in reality by the relatable social anxiety / awkwardness of a young girl, with a fantasy aspect in the background. Not a magical adventure with Miyazaki's trademark lack of characterisation-reality attentiveness--a film with a very real emotional undercurrent people can relate to. And although Marnie is most certainly not a Miyazaki film (which I am eternally grateful for after enduring 'The Wind Rises'...), it most certainly is a Ghibli film. A nice way for Ghibli to end their anime love affair, if it is indeed to be their last.

Both films involve heroines you could describe as anti-social moving to rural settings, with family difficulties being a key theme. Then, a supernatural aspect in Momo and more of an imaginary aspect in Marnie gets used to develop the characters and resolve the respective family issues. Momo was more cohesive in terms of blending the social woes with fantasy, where as Marnie was more of a tug of war between social anxiety and imaginary friendship; with an artificial seeming end. But one listen of Marnie's beautiful end credit music, when paired with how it started, and I can't help but link the two.

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka
They both have some place they go to kill monsters and make money. The monsters only "spawn" at this place, and not elsewhere. Druaga is more "party" focused, where as DanMachi seems to be more focused on 1 person. Neither is set to some digital/alternative world (as in the characters don't "live" in more than 1 world), which also make them feel very similar, along with the time setting seeming similar.

If you liked
Digimon Tamers
...then you might like
Show By Rock!!
the story is about someone from Real World, being transfered to another world in order to save that world

the concept is so much similar I think, even the setting of Digital World (in Tamers) and Sound World is so similar

the differences are just
in Show By Rock, the concept is more likely similar to Digimon Adventure, that the chosen one is sent to another world for a long term until the world saved
in Show By Rock, the battle scene is shown in 3D (and in another form), altrough in all Digimon franchise (except X-Evolution), the only 3D scene is when the Digimon transform into superior level (Perfect & Ultimate)

Ninja Slayer From Animation
"Ninja Slayer From Animation" and "The Phantom Ship" / "Yuurei Sen" might initially seem quite different, but both tell tales of vengeance that involve powers of the supernatural.

These two shows each have their own unique art-styles. "Ninja Slayer From Animation" has an interesting choice of terrible character art that causes everything to look unmoving and unappealing whilst "The Phantom Ship" / "Yuurei Sen" was animated with traditional paper puppets that give it its 2-D look.

Shakugan no Shana
There is a similar atmosphere in these two series. The character designs are colorful and bishoujo-influenced, and the action sequences are flashy and involve magic. Both series also contain drama as a main point, as well as action. They also take place in urban environments.

They are both fantasy-based, but Nanoha takes the magical girl trope a little further than Shana. Shana is more of just a magic-based fighter rather than the traditional magical girl.

Both series have extremely similar atmospheres and features. Both are worth a shot.

There are similarities between these two anime series. Diary owners are stuck in a world where you have to kill other future diary owners to become the one 'God' in Mirai Nikki. In Danganronpa, a small select amount of students are trapped in a school and the only way out is to murder your classmates. They both involve killing people for higher gain or for personal satisfaction and the motivation given to the characters make both shows interesting where we have people teaming up and lack of trust of the people surrounding you as anyone can kill each other and the lack of trust gives the show interest and 'binge watching' capability.

Ana Satsujin
The foundation of Mirai Nikki and Ana Satsujin (Peephole) has a very similar mood; do note that Mirai Nikki has more of a survival game concept. We have a main girl who has mental stability and obsession with the main male protagonist. This becomes quite a problem as we find out how far she is willing to go in order to get what she wants. Throughout both series, there are also cases of murder that connects to the main characters' roles in the story. Recommended for fans of psychological mystery fiction.

Both series consist of survival horror and a psychological thriller-like story as we learn how complicated their lives has become. Real Account does make time for comedy and generic relationship tropes while Doubt has a dark eerie mood throughout the entire course of its story.

With Princess Mononoke, it's a very similar setting, of a rural, medieval setting in Princess Mononoke, and a Post Apacolyptic/far future medieval setting in Shinsekai yori.

It's mostly the mood; very dark, very bleak worlds where people who work on the fringes have to deal with daily moral ambiguities. You keep watching both of them for similar reasons. You wan to find out about the pasts of the characters, as well as your questions about who is good and who is bad in the story. In that way they also have similar themes so I think you would likely enjoy them in the same way even though the premises are somewhat different.

Let's be honest there is the demon thing, there are demons in both being funny and morally ambiguous and some attractive demon guys being attractive.

Also there is a love interest who is the really cute, girly, passive character with huge boobs. If you liked one character I feel that you would like the other.

Sakuranbo Syndrome - Cupid no Itazura II
Both plots are almost identical since Hitsuja no Uta is about two siblings that suffers from an extremely rare disease and Sakuranbo Syndrome is about a university student that suffers from an extremely rare disease. The two series focuses on the main character’s life.

If you love airplanes, you have to watch both of these.
Beautifully drawn airplanes, flight scenes and narrative. Your heart will soar.

Also, there's nothing quite like the sound of propeller plane engines, amirite?

Amagi Brilliant Park
Good clean fun. Short and sweet with witty humor, likable characters and treats for people who pay attention to details/things happening in the background.

Both series involve not-so-normal people working very normal jobs. Hilarity ensues.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000%
1. All the guys are hot in both
2. The main girl character is a little shy and cute
3. Each episode focuses on one guy (doesn't necessarily have a story arc but nevertheless interesting)
4. Colours are really beautiful - well animated. Music is well done.

Itazura na Kiss
...then you might like
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji
1. Both main characters are females and are a little clumsy but has a good heart
2. The main male lead are both a tease and annoying at the beginning but then develops feeling for the heroine

Itazura na kiss I believe is more serious in some episodes and more realistic in portraying romantic relationships while ookami is more light-hearted and girly.

Vampire Knight
...then you might like
Diabolik Lovers
Similarities:

'Romance' kind of with loads of pretty vampires
Initially, both have very vapid female protagonists
Both use a lot of 'blood sucking is sexy' stuff

Dissimilarities:

Diabolik Lovers is a reverse harem
Vampire Knight has a plot

Diabolik Lovers is awful and I enjoyed every awful minute of this awful show, can't wait for season 2

a club without really a clear activity (unless if we consider talking as an activity).Plus the whole events are in the club-room , I think that was enough to make me feel the similarity between these two animes.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV)
Both are romcom that's full of trainwrecks and weirdos.
Some point the plot will be an one-sided romance then immediately ignored/destroyed by the other side.
In Gekkan Shoujo the one in love is Chiyo while Yamada is the one in this anime.
Light hearted tracks(slow tempo,not bassy) are used in both anime.

Grisaia no Kajitsu
These two series are bishoujo, visual novel-based harems. They feature a colorful cast of characters that actually get development (some more than others) in their respective arcs. Grisaia is more fanservice and violence-heavy, though. They both contain tragedy and plot twists.

Little Busters!
...then you might like
Grisaia no Kajitsu
These two series follow multiple students' lives. The art style in both, for the most part, is bishoujo...Which, you guessed it, means they have harem elements. However, they are most similar for having a hint of mystery rather than just vapid (or simplistic) slice of life. To be warned, however, Grisaia has a lot more outright fanservice and violence, while Little Busters has little to none of those things.

Both of these anime keep an air of drama to them, through character development and interpersonal relationships. They also have that clean, crisp artistic style found in a lot of vn-based anime.

Aegis
...then you might like
Owari no Seraph
Attention this might contain minor spoiler. You love sci-fi shonen with "very close friends"? Aegis could be considered a sort of Owari no Seraph Korean version. You have orphan children forced to fight for a goal, two best friends who end up in different sides of a war, the blonde one making everything alone within his reach for the dark-haired one to live (and make friends), even if it means to sacrifice himself to achieve that...in whatever means.
You will be heart broken with the story of these friends, set in a futuristic/dystopian world. Personally I love ONS more but Aegis is really good and also presents action.
If you liked
H2O: Footprints in the Sand
...then you might like
Grisaia no Kajitsu
These series both focus on harem elements. They can have some comedy and light-hearted moments, but something darker with a hint of mystery lies underneath. Grisaia, I think, is a little more dark than H2O. But they are both satisfying mystery-type harems IF you enjoy these genres/themes.
