Liked the strategical battles and mind games in NGNL? Hunter x Hunter has even more! Both are (somewhat) fantasy, adventure, action anime that have lots of strategies, battle of the wits, and strong main characters.

Beck
...then you might like
Sakamichi no Apollon
Beck is a modern high school coming-of-age story where a nobody becomes a somebody by becoming a member of a rock band. Kids on the Slopes is a josei romance drama disguised as a high school coming-of-age story centered around jazz in the 1960's.

On the surface the two series appear similar. They both use music as a way of introducing and connecting their characters with the rest of the cast; including love interests that act as motivational factors. However, where as jazz is just a means to romantic ends in Kids on the Slopes, in Beck music is the most important aspect: it's the driving force of a story where character growth is linked into the titular band's successes and failures. There's a romance subplot in Beck that causes frustration and rage, for sure, but there's no denying that Beck is, first and foremost, about music.

Kids on the Slopes' greatest problem is this: its manga was serialised in a magazine called 'Flowers'. Hardly the ideal platform for a coming-of-age story with a a male lead, and that shows through; both in terms of the romantic focus AND male lead characterisation that's overly feminine. Jazz barely gets a look-in aside from when the cast hang out together. In contrast, Beck is more male-orientated with its lead's characterisation, and although romance gets far less attention, the heroine has caused anger in more than one fan for being realistically bitchy. That sort of naturalness is missing from Kids on the Slopes with its far more shoujo / soap operaish approach to romance.

In short: if you're looking for something shoujoish with music on the side, watch Kids on the Slopes. If you're a male looking for a coming-of-age story centered around music, watch Beck. Simple as that.

Cute high school romance, with love triangles, return-of-the-ex drama and such.

Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
Both revolve around a male and female lead with talents/powers that have little to no emotions. Action is a main element of both as well as them both being thrillers/mysterious. The MCs work for a powerful syndicate and are told to complete missions that involve assassinating important people so the syndicates can have their way. The art is very simple in both as well. These two really could not be any more alike. I highly recommend those who liked one to watch the other.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Both animes do a stunning job of completely turning their respective genres (mecha & magical girl) completely on their heads. The characters also have a similar crisis: They must fight against something they do not understand for unknown reasons and they all suffer greatly. They are both very psychological.

Angel Cop
Both feature Organizations behind the scenes orchestrating events for their own self interest. they're also both OVAs from the 90s. Angel Cop has a fair amount of expository dialogue but it's a drop in the ocean compared to LoGH.

Shingeki no Kyojin

Black Bullet
Both of them are similar because both of hem are about human civilizations being on the verge of extermination. Btu are epic post apocalyptic type genres. Shingeki no Kyojin tells about the sorrows and pains of young boy named Eren Jaeger who has lost his mother due to titan eating her. Rentaro, in Black Bullet, is similar to Eren in that sense, who becomes a civil security member because of the death of his parents who died because of the gastrea virus.

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari
Just like SAO and some other series, mangas and novels, this 2 are about virtual reality online role playing, the lives of the protagonist in them and the dangers they have to face. The only difference is, Tate no Yuusha does not only show a more promising plot, until now, it has also been the most fun to read.
It wouldn't amaze me to see this manga animated next year, and gaining the same amount of popularity as SAO.

+α no Tachiichi
Randomly brought into a fantasy world, a group of ordinary citizens are now tasked with the duty of protecting the kingdom from the evils that reside in the world. The series, however, deviates from the classic "hero versus demon lord" trope. The protagonist of Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari takes the dark anti-hero path in order protect the innocents from the hordes of demons. Even though he is hated by nearly all, he still burdens himself in saving the lives of the people. The heroine of +α no Tachiichi possesses the power of the Holy Maiden, however, she is torn between friendship and duty. While serving as a guardian of the sovereignty, she unwillingly finds herself in a shoujo-themed scenario.

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi Movie: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai
Yaoi/shonen ai which has tsundere uke, somehow there is a child girl there, and there is a blackmail somehow too and a persistent seme somehow too, again. One is a movie and the other ovas but the duration is practically the same. And of course Koisuru Boukun is more explicit.
If you liked
Sora no Momotarou

Momotarou no Umiwashi
Both are short, very old, black and white movies from 1930-40. Both show a story about a hero Momotaro that fights eagles on a sea while riding airplane with his animal companions. Both have anthromorphic animals. Both can be taken as anti-america propaganda, but it´s more obvious in Momotarou no Umiwashi.
If you liked
Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo
...then you might like
Witch Craft Works
Completely different story, but I made this recommendation just because of the elements magic/mahou and the ridiculous theme at first sight, but somehow you watch them. I have to say that Okusama Wa Mahou Shoujo is mahou shoujo oriented as the name says it and Witch Craft Works is about witches and has more development, at least.
If you liked
Eureka Seven
...then you might like
Suisei no Gargantia
Now both involve moving to a "new" planet due too the original being inhabitable and using giant robots to fight their enemies. As well as having the main protagonist being slightly emotionless. All in all slightly similar story and I feel if you enjoyed eureka 7 you would enjoy this.
If you liked
InuYasha
...then you might like
Ao no Exorcist
Both have a similar concept. The main protagonist has demon powers because of his heritage and uses those powers to save the world. Even if Inuyasha was reluctant at first.

Nobara

Komukai-ke no Jijou
Even though in Komukai-ke no Jijou we already have a 'living-together' couple, and in Nobara opening up takes a time, the characters in both of the stories have those innocent, and sincere attitudes which makes your heart warm. They both have pretty arts, and give soothing air.

Okobore Hime to Entaku no Kishi
The two protagonists are princesses or queens who inherit the throne and romance surrounding the knight who protects. Also drawing of both mangas is very nice but I think the story is not interesting.
