Both stories follow a group of characters trying to get out of miserable/desperate situations. The primary antagonists of the series are very similar in terms of their sadistic nature. Throughout the series, the protagonists are seemingly offered ways out of their dire circumstances by the antagonists, but those chances are often intended to merely provide false hope to the protagonists. Both series have a very "hard-boiled"/"bad-ass" vibe to them. Both were produced by Madhouse in the late 2000s and have fairly similar animation styles.

Boku no Hero Academia
add
Both shows feature "ordinary looking" main characters who, although they once were completely ordinary, have gained supernatural powers. However, I'd say Boku no Hero Academia is a "school life" anime as well as a superhero one, and is a little bit less violent than One Punch Man. For this reason, I think Boku no Hero Academia is a bit more suited for kids. Both are really funny though!

While I wouldn't personally classify either of these as tearjerkers (because they didn't jerk any tears from me, and that's how I define it), they both fall into the same tone and even use incredibly similar themes.

Very minor overarching plots and a strong focus on the characters simply living out their daily lives, primarily at or around school. No drama to speak of aside from any used to help emphasis a particular joke, and no really strong romantic elements either. While the main of Tanaka-kun takes it to an extremely level, he and multiple of the characters in GJ-bu enjoy being able to relax and not do much quite often. Beyond that the cast of characters are fairly diverse, but they're all easy to like and relate to in some fashion.

LotGH is far more serious, realistic, politically and militarily centred, science fiction/space opera, the perfect seinen, while JoJo is well bizarre, very creative in its setting, supernatural with super powers, the perfect shounen.

Good old retro titles, seminal masterpieces, influencing the entire medium, and getting a re-adaptation nowadays!

After the "trapped in a video game/fantasy world" genre has long since been tired out, these two add a refreshing spin to that idea. Grimgar takes a much more serious and "real" tone to it, making the characters and scenarios much more believable and gripping, while Re:Zero's "gimmick" is something that hasn't really been done in it's genre before, and adds a lot of layers and depth to it's story. These two anime treat their viewer and stories with respect, and deliver similarly high drama (but not at all forced), genuinely intense experiences.

They both involve revival, fear, drama, uncertainty. People wanting to kill you. Not sure if someone is your ally or enemy. Both have a level of horror / gore (implied or otherwise). Both leave you really, really wanting to see the next episode. Both have a good focus on the nature, personality, and morality of various peoples/characters -- is someone being evil because they kill? Both start with a sort of mediocre high school male character, and both show subtle but minimal growth with the hint of future growth of the MC. Ajin is obviously more supernatural with a focus on humanity and violence, whereas Re Zero is more fantasy and over-the-top characters with a focus on the characters themselves, and especially the MC's perspective and mental workings.

Similar plot? No! Episodic format? Yes! Charismatic characters? Yes!! Similar "feeling"? Yes!!! Amazing soundtrack? FUCK YEAH!!!! Both have strong western influences, a jazzy feeling, and mix action and comedy very well until the end, when resolves the plot with a very serious tone. Both also require a bit of reading between the lines to understand what the episodes are really about, and many have a philosophical note to them. The perfect rule of cool.

People with unmatched abilities are likely to be bored in the normal world, that's why it is appropriate to send them to another world where they can use their skills to great use.

Ping Pong The Animation is more heavy-handed in its seriousness, but it uses ping pong like Hana to Alice uses its mystery to develop its characters. Of course, that's not the only similarity they share--they both also have a similarly unique art/animation style rarely seen in anime, so if you're seeking somewhat experimental art/animation styles, Ping Pong The Animation is a good bet. To add to that, Ping Pong The Animation is also a really great character-driven series. It is strong in every aspect, including its story and plot progression, which is something that Hana to Alice fell short in.

Hyouka is an adaptation of the Koten-Bu Novel series, beware that it doesn't have an actual conclusion. It's similarly slow-paced and character driven narrative nestles it into the same niche as Hana to Alice. Hyouka utilises mundane mysteries--which are great on their own--as a backdrop for its characters. Hyouka has similarly high-production values and the same sort of deadpan humour, with distinct and unique characters.

Standing Ovation to both productions! 5 out of 5 stars. 10 out of 10, A+, 100%

Both shows being two of my favorites on MAL, I consider them not just adventure stories, but odysseys. Edward and Alphonse are on an odyssey to recover their bodies, Gon is on an odyssey to meet his father. As I am a proud adoptee, I love that not only are the main characters adopted, but that there are so many older characters who try to take Ed and Al and Gon respectively under their wing as their sons (Mae Hughes and Roy Mustang with the Elrics, Leorio and Kite and Morel with Gon Freecs). Kudos to those characters!

Everyone has already mentioned the similarity between both series' main characters, I completely agree. Al acts as Ed's foil, Killua acts as Gon's foil. I also love the fact that not only did my fav voice actor Keiji Fujiwara voice Leorio and Col Mae Hughes, but those two look so alike with the tall, dangly, be speckled, cool guy look. So cool!

I thought most of the similarities to each show happened during H x H Chimera Ant arc because both arcs are coincidentally similar length (about 65 episodes), both coincidentally share voice actors such as Roy Mustang and Knov, but also these are the most famous arcs in anime repertoire. Both massive arcs explore in their own writing what it means to be human by outlining examples of what it means to not be human. The Chimera ants are humanoid and quite complex, but are not humans (they seemed beyond the humans in power). The Homunculi are also not humans though they blend in so well, and they like Chimera ants look down at humans in power. The climaxes of both arcs comes after waiting 30 episodes and boy do they deliver.

Fights are all cerebral, not just flashy visuals. This trope is probably influenced by Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fighting mechanics. This keeps all the battles psychological, and unpredictable to the audiences. In other words, both series take to heart that Power level alone does not guarantee victory, it is always the most intelligent fighter that wins.

Music is phenomenal and memorable in both series.

Much like how Jojo's or DBZ aged so well as anime and manga that they later inspired or influenced later generations of anime writers (coincidentally, these productions were influenced!), I see that it is only a matter of time for these two shows to age ten or twenty years before they influence the next generation of writers.

To sum up both series in an adjective that gives the shows justice has failed me. I think good adjectives might be magical, inspiring, masterpieces.

Both animes have two main characters who works amazingly good together, even though their didn't like each other at first, there's sport spirit and a colorful team who slowly becomes better and better at their sport.
The only big difference between these two animes is that they have more humor in Haikyuu!! and play volleyball instead of basket.

There is always so much that can be done with the theme of time travel, yet there are so many anime that deals with this wide theme and does things their own way. Suzumiya is a unique experience dealing with time travel and other out of this world phenomenons.

It is one trip through time, going through the cycles of time or back in the past with varied experience. Just as re:zero has a few episodes with similar experiences repeated but varied slightly each time to further the plotline, Suzumiya also has several episodes one after another, which may make you think that you are watching the same episode as before, but if you watch closely enough, you will see the differences in each episode. These events happen until something finally breaks this endless cycle of time repeating itself, and that's when you find out all the secrets behind this time loops.

A time loop is just one fraction of Suzumiya, but there is so much more going on. The same could be said with re:zero, that there is so much more beyond the main character's time loop.
