Oyasumi Punpun

Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
These manga are both very dismal slice-of-lifes with endings that verge more on the precariously reassuring than happy. The feature characters are all dysfunctional (in a "something terrible happened to me in the past" kind of way) and just trying to get by in the world. I would chalk both of these comics up to manga versions of Grave of the Fireflies: the best mangas that you never want to read again.
If you liked
Cowboy Bebop
...then you might like
Samurai Champloo
While Cowboy Bebop often accrues more glory, both of these shows are made by the same directors, and, personally, I enjoyed Champloo more. The main characters are all very similar, and both series maintain an episodic style up until the last few dramatic episodes, which are both fantastic in their own ways.
If you liked

Plastic Nee-san
Plastic is also a bunch of very random schoolgirl skits. Nichijo's actually a full anime though, so Plastic will be the length of one Nichijo episode. Worth a quick watch.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
This recommendation wasn't made because both show strongly similar. Both show slightly different except for romance drama involving middle school student part. Their true charm is how beautiful they were made. Music portray how Shigatsu's characters emotion flowing while it narrated with words. While Nagi no Asukara use combination both of beautiful art and soundtracks.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Mindbending excitement.....there is also, surprisingly huge similarities in the plot. I feel like both of them are those "expect nothing, get EVERYTHING" kind of animes. Both anime start off with simple, easy to understand plots, that don't bore you before they get REALLLY good. Trust me, to those who watched Stein's;Gate and think it is as original and one of a kind as it get's....well it is. But Madoka sure make's a good counter. Personally, I perfered Madoka to Stein's;Gate (barely, but there both FANTASTIC IN EVERYWAY POSSIBLE), but if you've watched and enjoyed one of them you will love the other as well!

Both series also adapts some subtle romance as part of its story.

Koe no Katachi
Bullying, guilt and redemption.

Bullying is a taboo subject matter in fiction. Even more so when it is the main character of the series him/herself either doing something that is perceived as bullying or just outright bullying another person. No-one wants to make their lead characters unlikable and hurt their sales, after all. And there can be few more distasteful acts than ejaculating on a girl's clothes (Onani) or abusing a disabled girl (Katachi)!

The true similarity between these two is how their respective anti-social leads go on 'crime & punishment' paths of redemption after doing despicable things. They both find themselves being bullied in a sort of karmic response to their own actions and eventually grow after the guilt sinks in; culminating in romance. It's an interesting brand of characterisation where the lead characters are broken before being re-built into something more than they were originally.
If you liked
Tokyo Ghoul
...then you might like
Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu
Both starts off with a human main character which becomes more or less than a human in Kaneki's case it's that he becomes a half ghoul and in Izumi's case it's that he becomes merged with migi. Both series are very addictive that will make it hard for you to stop in the middle of it after you've started watching it.
If you liked
Naruto
...then you might like
Hunter x Hunter (2011)
Both series starts off with a early exam in Hunter x Hunter's case it's Hunter exam and in Naruto's case it's chunin exam. Both are anime's with much fight's but there's also a huge difference between the fighting styles Hunter x Hunter's fights focuses more on tactics than Naruto's fights which is usually just a normal fight. Both are long running action shounen. Both episodes have over 100 episodes. If you have not watched either of these series then you should start with Hunter x Hunter because in my opinion Hunter x Hunter is a much better anime.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV)
The two really remind me of one another. The characters and their dynamics are a notch different with a different premise, but the style of entertainment with the humor and interesting character reactions provide the same sort of effect for me. Not to say that their quality is on par (I'll just let the individual decide that), only that how they provided entertainment to me (comedy, character drama, and such) were on very similar wavelengths.
If you liked
Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor
...then you might like
One Outs
Although One Outs is less intense and thrilling and significantly less brutal, both animes are quite similar in the sense that they feature protagonists that use gambles and play with the minds of others to accomplish their goals. Both feature a rich, evil and unlikable antagonist who tries to mess with the protagonist.
A difference though is that Kaiji is a lot less levelheaded and "overpowered" than Tokuchi but both are geniuses in their own respective way and come up with incredible solutions to the problems they face. If you're trying to find an anime as thrilling as GB Kaiji, One Outs may not be your best bet as has a much calmer atmosphere but if you liked Kaiji for the mindgames and outwits, you should definetly give One Outs a try!
Also, both have the same voice actor which has a fitting voice for those roles.

Fans of both have drawn many parallels between the two shows. They're similar in that they are both semi-episodic comedy-drama with similar themes. The MC is a depressed young man trying to cope with the failures of his life, and is surrounded by weird people. Dark, depressing and slightly psychedelic, they're both great shows, and although not very similar, one will remind you of the other.

Well both animes are resolved around a young boy protagonist, it's both clear they both had amnesia about their superpowers,some of their past, and little by little started remembering things about it.

I really recommend you watch this anime because even if you like "Deadman wonderland" the slightest you really should watch this anime.

Jashin-chan Dropkick
Anyone interested in some rather unorthodox comedy involving monster girls should give these two series a try. Both series involves everyday life events involving female characters that takes the form of monster girls. There is diversity and each chapter explores a bit of it with humor. Monster Musume does have harem antics with a main male lead while Jashin-chan Dropkick retains more of a slice of life style.
If you liked
Tokyo Ghoul
...then you might like
Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu
So after watching Parasyte, I'll have to say that I got reminded of Tokyo Ghoul quite a number of times. Mainly because both protagonists seems like an average teenager to anyone, but yet they aren't fully human. When they first became half-human, they were struggling to control themselves and pretty weak, but as the story goes on, they will become stronger and realise that there are more of their kind then they expected, and they have to be prepared to fight for anyone against them. They also have to hide their secrets and still live a normal live. And of course, they will lose people whom they care for.

While Yakitate!

Both deal with the question how heroes and demons would live a normal life with a normal job. In "Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita." events take place in a fantasy world where heroes are no longer needed because the demon lord was killed whereas in "Hataraku Maou-sama!" Satan and his demon generals fled to the human world after they were defeated by a group of heroes. Former is an ecchi harem (I mean it: HEAVY ECCHI) with some romance and comedy elements while latter is mainly focused on comedy.

If you liked
Zombiepowder.
...then you might like
Trigun
When I first started reading Zombie Powder, it had that "Bang! Bang! Shoot-'em-up" Western feel. Trigun {all series} is also a Western-y manga. Both stories are set in the future. Both main characters have large bounties on their heads, with mysterious weapons and arms. However -- Trigun's main character, Vash, is a little more comedic than Gamma. They have the same stock characters {someone who follows them, their "partner in crime}, and I think if you like one, you'll definitely like the other.
If you liked
Soul Eater
...then you might like
Rustblaster
Both Soul Eater and Rust Blaster play with the idea of people being able to turn in to weapons. With Rust Blaster, transformation is a little different, though. But if you like fight scenes like that, then one manga is just as interesting as the other. Rust Blaster and Soul Eater also have the theme of not losing yourself, of fighting forces out of the character’s control and staying true to themselves. Although Soul Eater doesn’t have vampires in it, and Rust Blaster does, I think if you like one, you should give the other one a read. If Rust Blaster lovers are looking for something longer to read, check out Soul Eater. If Soul Eater lovers are looking for a something short and sweet, try Rust Blaster.

Rustblaster
...then you might like
Kuroshitsuji
Kuroshitsuji and Rust Blaster are by the same person – Yana Toboso. If you liked the style and character design of one manga, you should read the other. Both mangas have a gothic look and feel to it. There’s also a contract formed between a human and a supernatural creature {for Rust Blaster it’s a human and a vampire, in Kuroshitsuji, it’s a human and a demon}. Some of the characters in one manga have similar traits to other characters in the other manga {I’ll let you draw the matching lines}. There’s also a lot of feathers in both…
If you liked
Vampire Knight
...then you might like
Rustblaster
Vampire Knight and Rust Blaster aren’t too similar. However, if you like the fact that Rust Blaster took place at a co-ed school of humans and vampires and that the main character didn’t like drinking human blood, but lost himself for a bit when he did, then you would like Vampire Knight. It goes more in-depth and deals with those two themes specifically. Vampire Knight is more girly, though, and it’s a lot longer.
If you liked
Dogs: Bullets & Carnage
...then you might like
Togainu no Chi
Both Dogs and -NoChi deal with the underground of futuristic cities. They both are animated using gray tones, giving the whole thing a "gray look" {it's always raining, or is cloudy in both animes}. The plots are darker and deal with gloomy themes such as being able to kill another person and moral values. I recomend the Dogs manga more than the OVA, because you get to go more in-depth, and a forewarning, -NoChi was supposed to be made after the BL game. But overall, I think that if you like one, you should give the other a shot.
If you liked
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

There is also a fine degree of realism in both series relating to every day life experiences as well.
If you liked
Darwin's Game
...then you might like
Tenkuu Shinpan
When thrown into the world of Darwin's Game and Tenkuu Shinpan, there's little option than to fight for survival.

Indeed, both series' story involves a lot about surviving and discovering the mysterious origins of their settings. Anyone interested in a series with a theme similar to a death game or survival horror fiction may want to give these two titles a try.

Inazuma Eleven Go: Galaxy
Almost similar show, but a bit more realistic. Inazuma Eleven include sci-fi superhuman feats, which makes it interesting. Whereas Kuroko's Basketball has great character development with awesome basketball games.

Needless
Both anime is very over the top, and both contains a lot of GAR(but Zero is more GORE, where Needless is the rather more beat the crap outta type) Also both has some ecchi moments, and the "call out your attacks" type.

I say that if you liked Needless ad wanted something far more darker in its comedy, and action try Zero. n my opinion it would satisfy those who wants a lot of action in a anime then plot.

I say that Zero is a bit more gorier and over the top then Guyver, but if you like action, and gore, and some over the top style action, try them, also recommend this to Kamen Rider fans as well, Henshin.
