In both Anime we have a Harem in which a male main character come to a new location and met some girls with which he make friends and spent a lot of time.
Both Anime seem to be cheerful at first but with the way of the story they get a much darker and deeper plot with some kinds of mystery, an intense of violence and a lot of psychological elements, in which the characters can become to insane.
Another mutuality is that both series are shown with an arc format, in which the characters revival after they die.

It arguably does a lot of things better than Tokyo Ghoul, though many overlook its potential as a story and series for its unique animation, but the CGI in Ajin is high quality, and is among the top uses of CGI I've ever seen in anime.

Fukigen na Mononokean
add
Shows about yokai/mononoke/spirits.

Mononoke is more serious and more experimental in art and execution with a drier sense of humour; whereas Fukigen na Mononokean is a simpler series set in high school with a more standard/accessible sense of humour.

Mononoke is more or less entirely 'episodic' (comprising of 3 almost completely unrelated arcs), focusing more on the yokai's story, leaving the MC shrouded in mystery; whereas Fukigen na Mononokean definitely has a clear overarching connection between each yokai encounter in the form of the main character's story.

Not quite the standard recommendation considering the stylistic gap ( though the colours in the Underworld of Mononokean does resemble the Mononoke palette), but if you're looking for more yokai stories after Mononoke, or you want to expand your anime horizons after watching Mononokean, give this a go.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu is probably the most popular anime released during the summer of 2016. From watching both Steins gate and Re:zero I've noticed how both the Main Characters go back in time some how to stop current events from happening. Steins Gate is by far the most confusing anime I've every seen, even episode 1 was very confusing, but everything makes sense when they explain it around the middle part of the series. If you are looking for romance in Steins Gate, then theres not that much at the beginning but there is quite a lot of romance towards the end. Steins Gate is also one of the most "Feels" anime I've seen. Be sure to check it out! I'd rate Steins Gate 9/10

If you liked death note, then Code Geass is basically something similar to death note. I personally like Code Geass more. Despite the art not being really good, the story is one of the best out there! Both the stories have a Main Character that can be viewed as a good guy or a bad guy and both the stories have a second main character which can be viewed as the opponent of the main character. Both L in death note and Lelouch in Code Geass have a high level of intelligence and they are both very smart. The story might be boring to some of you out there, but trust me it gets way better! I'd rate this Anime 8.5-9 out of 10!

add
Both are fun adventure shonen about a young boy going on a journey.

For One Piece, it is about Luffy as he ventures through the oceans and Grandline. He collects crewmates and seeks to become the Pirate King, fighting off evil marines, other pirates, and overcoming other hurdles.

For Digimon Xros Wars, it is about Kudou Taiki and Shoutmon as they venture through the Digital Zones and world. They collect companion Digimon, Shoutmon seeks to become the Digimon King, and they fight off the tyrannical Bagra army, liberating zones and gathering fellow Digimon for their cause.

Both also have side characters who play important or recurring roles, such as Smoker or Kiriha, who have their own growth and development. The biggest difference is that Xros Wars is a complete tale while OP still likely has many more years to its story.

Nisekoi
add
Many romcoms share similar likenesses, so I could probably list others that match up decently like Chuunibyou, Golden Time, and even Yahari Ore no Seishun and such which others have listed. But I found these two to be similar because of the MC's dynamic/forced relationship with a main girl while the MC's crush is a different person.

Both also have typical things like "beach" episodes, romantic tension that occurs during scenes of the MC and female protagonist (though Nisekoi has a bit more romantic tension in its scenes). Both are also comedies and have tsundere leads.

The difference is that Nisekoi turns into a harem fairly quickly while Toradora mainly focuses on the same five characters and a love polygon of sorts.

I only recommend these two for each other based on a single similarity ...but it is a very striking similarity both shows carry. Both deal with childhood friends and death, and both also show the gradual reconciliation of feelings toward the dead and coming to terms with it. Both are also very sweet and extremely sad. So I only recommend one for the other if you saw one and enjoyed the parts dealing with the dead and the romance with the shows.

Otherwise, the shows are pretty different. CG is slower paced and about baseball while Anohana is about a group of friends who have broken apart.

Both are about a young bullied male teen who learns to fight and gradually becomes stronger and overcoming challenges.

HnI is more centered exclusively on boxing and on Ippo's growth through the boxing tournaments he is in while searching for "what it means to be strong". HSDK is more about Kenichi's growth with multiple martial arts as he seeks to become strong enough to protect those close to him. HSDK has more delinquent fights while HnI is more official fights. HSDK is more ecchi/sexual than HnI (thoug both have it in doses).

Both also show side characters who grow and develop too, such as Volg and Hermit. Both also show side fights and have manga that go beyond their anime material.

Boku no Hero Academia
add
Both are shows about a group of superheroes and them fighting crime and living in a world that now accepts and endorses superheroes. Both have serious villains and even both main characters have similar generic superpowers.

The main difference is TAB focuses on a group of adults and is more episodic (and character driven) while BNHA focuses on children who are growing and learning and follows a more clear sequence of episode which flow into the other. IMO, TAB has a better story arc overall (and much better climax), is deeper as a story, and better themes while BNHA is more of an underdog story and meant to be a part of a greater tale (this anime is only part of the full manga series).

BNHA is more shonen and TAB is slightly geared toward older audiences.

Both anime films directed by Mamoru Hosoda deal with a world based on our world with some supernatural beast-like elements.

The biggest similarity is both are movies that deal with parenthood and children growing up and coming into their own. Wolf Children is more about a mother and her two kids while Boy and the Beast is about a son and his father.

Both are solid movie experiences and are donely fairly well. I think parents are more likely to get a kick out of them but I can see many enjoying their stories.

There's also a fair bit of similarity between the internal family-based strife in both shows, though of course, Zetsuen no Tempest happens in a more fantastical setting and has a magic orientated plot. 91 Days is set against a gritty backdrop of Prohibition Era US, and is more liberal when it comes to killing off characters.

In Grisaia the MC is a trained assassin and the girls all suffer from mental disorders/traumas. Some of the girls in Monogatari also suffer from mental disorders next to their possession.

Monogatari is more intellectual and does things really smart. A lot of irony and methaphorical wordplay. Grisaia takes itself too serious at times but it's a fun ride.

Both MCs have balls and are not afraid to take decisions. Both series contain ecchi and action oriented elements.

I'll have this updated when I finish re-watching Nee, so I'll be general for now.

The cast of Nee, Chanto Shiyou Yo! seems to be the inspiration behind the characters of Akame Ga Kill!, not only females characters but also our main male MC. From looks to personality, the cast of Nee... has been transferred to Akame in weird ways (like they put the characters from Nee in a blender and you get a mix of personas with an appearance of a blue haired demon ;))

I didn't even notice until I saw the blonde in Nee and looked at the Akame anime page, some of the characters have been straight pasted into Akame with fighting powers. Our precious Kaname is the inspiration behind icon character Akame's looks although personality was not wholly.

The World God Only Knows and Grisaia no Kajitsu are both in the Harem anime genre: multiple girls fall in love with one guy. The first season of Grisaia no Kajitsu and the first two seasons of The World God Only Knows are divided into several arcs, one for each heroine the main protagonist meets. One major trait shared by these two anime that made me really like them both is their amount and quality of character development. Throughout each arc of the two anime, the protagonist and the viewer learn about the heroine’s personal difficulties or a major event that took place in their past, and the protagonist helps the heroine overcome the scars or handicaps resulting from them. Both anime also have sequel seasons with plots that go a different direction than their previous seasons, but have many of the same characters.

The best thing about Nana is that there are a group of interesting characters and you can relate to each of their lives. It gets you in the feels and you have grown to understand why people think and do the things they do. And people learn in their own way how to grow up and make changes. Also catchy and loveable music, drama, love triangle, regrets, pain and happiness.

Orange is very similar. if not, the same. Minus the music. If you want to go through the same feels, gain a smile time through time, shed tears of sadness and joy, and enjoy the school life of a group of friends trying to save and continue their love for one another....this is the one. Please, watch the anime and also read the manga. Most beautiful story next to Nana.

Sure, the setting is completely different, but

-Both use most of their budget on fighting and fanservice
-Both have catchy opening themes
-Both have considerably large amounts of bloodshed
-Both are about a group of people banded together through some sort of power (Tatoos, Imperial Arms)

Skull Man
add
Hey you, yes you, do you like action? Do you like Japanese style Henshin heroes such as Super Sentai or Kamen Rider? That my friends is what these two shows have in common.

What they don't share however, is tone. Sadamitsu the Destroyer is a lighthearted, almost parody of Tokusatsu style shows, while Skull Man is a serious, dark take on similar concepts. Additionally, Skull Man came out six years later then Sadamitsu and was animated by studio Bones and not studio Deen, meaning it has far, far better animation.

But, if you enjoyed one, or tokusatsu shows in general (which is probably why you ended up here in the first place) you'll most likely enjoy the other so long as you go in with the right expectations.

Nevertheless, both animes (and mangas) are original and enjoyable in their own way.
