They share a certain amount of absurdist, surreal over-the-top action and the theme of escalation, as gradually things become more and more manic and insane. The characters are mostly likeable and while the animation styles differe, the sci-fi/mech aesthetic and the overall tone are similar in both shows. They're both fun, action packed, contain nudity, tough and badass girls and an overall nice soundtrack. Definitely worth checking out.
I do highly recommend watching Gunbuster 1 before Diebuster, though, because it's a sequel to the original late '80's OVA series and it will not make too much sense without the prior knowledge gained from its prequel.

(in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu its their important mission to kill Koro-sensei, while in D.Gray-man Earl Millennium isn't the only character to deal with).

-Both anime have a great character development which makes it more enjoyable to watch. (i suggest you to watch Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 2nd season if you want to see more character developments).

-Both MC are in the same age (15 years old), and they must socialize with others in their community. (3-E classroon in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Black Order in D.Gray-man).

-Both anime filled with great action, funny comedy scenes, and heart breaking sad scenes at times.

Imagine a world where fate demands to be corrected and it is willing to go through an endless binding cycle to achieve that purpose. The curse of time travel being portrayed at its best where the ones involved either witness gruesome deaths or experience it themselves. Happy endings are hard to come by but the future remains uncertain, it is up to the individual to decide the closure they deserve.

‘Boku dake ga Inai Machi’ showcases a game of cat and mouse that has seen it being dragged on for over 10 years in which all the tragedies that unfolded before us are planned by one single entity. The rich storyline that is full of substance accompanied by dark striking character expressions will undeniably leave your heart pumping while trying to anticipate the outcome of one’s action.

‘Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’ convene its story through multiple layers of secluded mystery where it is not known how each event are related. Unlike ‘Boku dake ga Inai Machi’, this mystery-base story plays right into the show’s strength due to the final villain not being revealed blatantly while their true purpose remains an enigma. Commendation should also be given to the series with the way it prioritises its vision, the romance/harem is certainly noticeable but never overwhelm the true objective which is the storyline. Audience would certainly appreciate the character interactions and comedy which sets a lighter tone away from the frightening events that has all but left us bewitched.

The two shows follow an agency/organization where it's members have supernatural abilities and they are trying to keep the area around them safe. Both start off with the main protagonist accidentally getting recruited by their respective organizations because of their unique abilities.

Both are enjoyable in my opinion overall.

The principal idea of my recommendation is based on different factors. First of all we got an awesome opening, the kind of stuff you can download an put on your mp3 to listening on daily routine. Second, even if the story happens in different timelines (Space, 2071 for Cowboy Bebop and Japan, Edo Period for Samurai Champloo), we can see a presente of a "road trip" in both, with all the crew together and helping each other. Different plots, where you have a new adventure in each episode. Same kind of comedy and some resemblance between main characters.

While Nodame Cantabile is mainly a comedy that will have you laughing all the way through, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is a strong drama that will make you, perhaps, cry a little. Still, both anime are a must watch, specially for those who like music.

Both series are similar in their attemp to portrai more realistic version of spy world (Joker Game more so than Senkou no Night Raid) compared to such classics as Bond Novels. Both are in same time period, that is before WW2. Art style is also quite similar.

Joker Game has more episodic aproach, so every episode there are new mysteries and new spies, although there is some connecting tissue. Senkou no Night Raid has story arc through whole series.

Joker Game is more reality based, although protagonists are top of their respective fields, they are still humans. Senkou no Night Raid is more fantastic, more in line of all powerful action superheroes of yesteryear.

When looking for a survival game, these two will kill you. Literally. Both animes showcase having an overseer of the game, whether that is a god or game creator. However, in order to leave said game, both are different but still leave a sense of survival and death games. I didn't care for the fast pace of SAO's way of showing the survival aspect of the plot. I did like Mirai Nikki's way of survival of kill with whatever resources you got. Overall, if you like watching lives at stake and the struggle of a death game more real than SAO, Mirai Nikki will fill that gap for you.

Both have the tendency to break the fourth wall, reference other shonen jump anime/manga, and they even have a cross-over episode. Another thing about the two is that they rely on being entertaining entirely. If you don't find yourself entertained, you probably won't have much to take from the experience (unlike some other shows where even if it bores you, you still might think it's good)

Both are about sports and both have a MC who is often underestimated by other (atleast in the beggining). Well I don't think this recommendation needs very mich explanation because most people know about both of these shows and Haikyuu is just like Kuroko no Basket, a really good show about sports.

This is a bit of a stretch but I'd recommend AkaYona if you liked OHSHC. Both main characters are strong female leads who want to stand up for themselves. However, they are surrounded by a group of males who want to do nothing more than to protect them. However both main characters are stubborn, and refuse to let the guys do everything for them. The males are hesitant, but they are happy to comply, and respect them and their decisions.

Both main characters are very alike, as in they're both otaku and have similiar interests. However while Watamote looks at the downsides of being an otaku (and perhaps the reality of it for some), Lucky Star has a more optimistic view on what it means to be an otaku. I'd recommend watching both to really compare the unhealthy otaku Tomoko vs healthy otaku Konata.

I believe that these two animes are the best.
When all action/op fails The Brains get the spotlight....
Both the story begin with college students i.e Leouch Lamperouge and Light Yagami.
Both the mc may look handsome caring and helpful .....but keep in mind they have an equally cunning,cruel,sadist,seaming,evil side too...one might just mistake them to be a devil.

Both receive a special power ;leouch gets the geass-the power of the king while light gets the death note-the power to kill anyone by writing their name in the death note.

Both the mc wish for a better world ..where all can live a happy life tho their main ideology is nobel but the path they choose to achieve it is beyond cruel.

Being smart ,intelligent , cunning they exploit their special power to the fullest to achieve their goal.....
"End justifies the means" true to these words they are ready to deceive , manipulate and even kill people without any hesitation ...going as far as to even kill their own relatives when they proved to be a threat to them.

The battle of minds, the madness of the mc., epic quotes and battle etc. make these two anime the best.The plot and twist and the mc are amazing and hence re watching them is totally worth it.

You will in love(with the anime) from the very first episode.


Hope you like it :)

Both shows are about how the world views lesbians. Both also use also a very colorful and undirect way to portray things- one could think these are silly light shows, but they are not.
Yuri Kuma Arashi is about murder, trauma, and homophobia in society. The key to understand YKA is to get that bears stand for ppl who put their desires over societies laws.
Yuri Seijin Naoko San is about sexualisation of gay ppl, and generally problems related to sex in society; like sexualisation of young girls in media etc. The key to understanding YSNS is to get that the world in the show is a metaphor of how Misuzu views the world around her; and the reason why she sees the world like this is her sister.

Both are dramas set in a very prestigious all girls' school. Both main characters are "plain" nd "simple" girls and both stories have a few "famous" girls in the school who everyone worships and adores. In both shows one of the famous girls has a dark/troubled past involving a female lover and both end up falling love with the "plain" main character. Both are drenched in melodrama and the people are superficial, mainly because of the time period, location and social status the students are.

Clannad and Kannon are practically the same anime: the visuals for the characters are identical and the behaviours, comedy and build-up of relationships go through the same motions. This may be due to the same people being behind both anime.

Both: There's a student in a prestigious academy and looks bored of his life, and there might be a war with some invaders. Then there's a princess who's intent on peaceful relations but her country is full of racist bastards who shit on Elevens/Terrans except for one dude (who's an eleven/terran aka Suzaku).

Both are centered around terrorists and political plots. And lol the first target for the Vers (Britannian) empire is NIPPON. The first episode of Aldnoah also has the main students witness a terrorist plot, just like ep.1 of Geass. There's tons of imperialism and many, many characters who look down on
