L♥DK
Both are more or less classic shoujo series with love triangles, relationship building, and dealing with circumstances at school. The main male protagonist connects with a main female character that brings out a variety of emotions between the two. Throughout their perspective stories, they experience various obstacles that can be commonly seen in a typical relationship. There are also other characters that gets involved that complicates their relationship as we find out more about their lives. Recommended for readers who are seeking a shoujo with complicated relationships.

Kounai Shasei
...then you might like
Oppai no Ouja 48
Both of these titles contain raunchy, outrageous humor. Kounai Shasei is actually the most outrageous anime I've seen to date, but Oppai no Ouja 48 has the most outrageous scene I've come across in this medium. Although the former doesn't have as much fan service (what am I supposed to call it?), it makes up for it with huge doses of humor. And the latter doesn't have nearly as much humor but tries to compensate for it with excessive fan service. Regardless of the amount of humor, I found both of these anime to be hilarious.

Red
Both are about two young girls who have a strong and scary passion for something they like. In Glass Mask, maya loves acting and in Red, Becky loves photography/model. Both of them have something to do with the same business. They start out with a poor background. Both Maya and Becky had to deal with a lot of problems to be the top. The art in both manga are old.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
I felt the similarity between these two animes in the way the characters act according to their emotions, making everything more exciting and real. Both animes have spirituality and characters very well constructed. It's hard not to cry.

Fate/Zero 2nd Season
Fate/Zero and NGE have whats in common:
-People fighting monsters until the plot gets to the climax
-Female characters whose role aren't human but serves something greater but too suspicious
-Drama is crazy
-Couple of character similarities (Difficult decisions, overcoming fear and anxiety, and dealing with the loss of humanity for the greater good)
-ancient conspiracy
-Action
-Dark and mature tone
-Not just adults but younger characters have some screen time
What's different is that:
-Mechas and Angels play a pivotal role in Third Impact whereas seven magicians and seven servants play a role in the success of the the Holy Grail War
-The Impacts and the Holy Grail Wars are alike since they occurred throughout the years but have different outcomes
-Supernatural substances in NGE and Magic in Fate Zero
If you like one or the other, it's worth it trust me, if you watch Fate/Zero, you will be amazed by it's high quality animation and storytelling.

Guilty Crown
Like Guilty Crown, Rahxephon too is highly influenced by Evangelion. Unlike Evangelion, both GC and Rahxephon has whats in common for them, a young ordinary high school teenager who lives his daily life only to end up encountering a mysterious girl who would end up forever changing his life into a conflict never before this big. Japan is the main setting in both shows as both are invaded by super sentient beings/powers and powerful organizations opposed by the other organization. Both Shu and Kamina holds the key to the fate of the world. To surprise you, at first the story in both shows are going to get episodic until later in a mid way or at the end, the story gets intense resulting plot twists and the loss of characters as well as development and a similar conclusion. Ancient conspiracy revolves the government in both stories. Kamina in my opinion has a better development than Shu because Shu at some point goes crazy nuts.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
the plot of the two is very similar, showing a boy who always fantasized but stopped doing that and then find a girl who takes new to this fantasy world through a novel, but the difference is that in Chuunibyou the comedy has greater prominence, Aura is now much more realistic, including bullying and portrays the difficulties of those facing these problems, but also presents points of comedy and have a great end, who watched a for sure shall watch the other ..

Aldnoah.Zero
Incoming epicness detected!
Politics, war, weapons of mass destruction...
In Aldnoah.Zero we see tensions between the earth and mars. In both cases the opposing factions seem similar to what we have already seen in Legend of the Galactic Heroes (Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu).
The earth faction in Aldnoah.Zero representing the Alliance and the martians having an aristrocratic structure. A main character from both series is a soldier and drinking heavily, being bitter from the war experiences they've made, claiming it their only way of being able to go on. I sense big intrigues and plottwist coming, and this is a huge reason why Legend of the Galactic Heroes was a great hit. The first episode of Aldnoah.Zero definitely shows promise of becoming a different, very modern type of intriguing space opera as we have already seen in LOTGH.
