K-On! and Love Lab are just jam packed with awesome moe-ness!
Both series consist of a bunch of cute highschool girls who work together to achieve their respective goals.
K-On! focuses more on practicing their instruments and putting up good performances (enjoying cake and tea as well). While Love Lab focuses more on the research and experimenting of the many aspects of.... love.
If you enjoy cute girls doing cute things which causes them to end up in hilarious situations, then watch either :D

Gintama Movie: Shinyaku Benizakura-hen
add
The 'Gintama Movie: Shinyaku Benizakura-hen' is basically a remake of the episodes 58-61 from the Anime 'Gintama'.
The Anime has more comedy and is episodic, but there are also serious arcs/events like the one in the movie, which are full of action. You can compare the comedy with the one in the movie; in the anime there is even more of it, as comedy is one of the main elements of the series.
You will like it if you enjoyed the movie.
You can also see more of the main characters (obviously).

both of these anime are comedy anime. in baka to test, the goal is to get better equipment for himeji by fighting the higher classes to swap equipment. and in between trying to do this, funny stuff happens that make you want to laugh. the funny thing about this anime is how baka akhisa can be.

in hataraku maou sama, the goal is to rule the earth and ente isla. both of these animes fight for more power, more superiority. the funny thing about devil's part timer is right now, before conquering his main goal, his side goal is to become manager at mgronalds. LOL.

i hope you can see the similarity between the two... it's not exactly similar, but trust me, it's good.

Trigger made both of these anime, and both are works of satire that deliberately use horrible animation. They also have stupid dialogue and catchphrases ('YEEEART!', 'NANI?!', etc.)

Both anime are named after their protagonists, and both are pretty damn funny. Well, only if you like the kind of humour they use, anyway.

Also, Ninja Slayer has an awesome dub, but Inferno Cop is dubless (is that a word?).

The epitome of mind control at its best when used for one's ambition on seriously cute girls and beautiful women.

Kyonyuu Hitozuma Onna Kyoushi Saimin has its bull-eyes set on school grounds where attractive teachers are hard to elude. A lucky guy's heart is pumping and the rest of the action flows as instinctive as silk.

Kyonyuu Kazoku Saimin brings us to a warm cozy home where there is more to the family than meets the public eye. The strength of the bond in the family is decided purely on lust and hunger to have it all.

Both have scenarios where a relatively geeky person (or so it'd seem) from our world suddenly has to deal with another fantasy world. Both main characters are OP. The series each contain a lot less violence and a lot more to do with politics than one would expect. Both are worth watching for people who wish to be whisked away to a world that combines two and imagining what would happen to us if we were there!

The main character is introduced to a situation and setting in which everyone is in danger of dying by otherworldly means, and has to try to escape from the situation. In order to achieve this, they must figure out a) what the fuck is going on and b) who is behind it all. Both animes start with a large group of characters but by the end most have been thinned out and few survive. Another's ending and answer to the mystery is pretty conclusive... but King of Thorn just leaves you with more unanswered questions.

Mobile Suit Gundam
add
Anno has stated on several occasions that Mobile Suit Gundam was one of the main influences on Evangelion. Both were ahead of their time and set a standard for future mecha in their respective eras, Gundam with a more realistic take on warfare rather than super robots, and Evangelion with more character focused drama.

Both main characters are one of the few remaining people who can pilot said series' mech, but are young and not mentally prepared for war and death, so they go through a struggle of handling it psychologically.

Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster
add
Nadesico is often viewed as a 'response' to Evangelion, but it can also be linked to other Gainax productions as well, especially Gunbuster and even Otaku no Video (Gainax productions have a lot of common threads). In the case of Gunbuster and Nadesico, both are most similar in their tonality, which can lurch back and forth between zany comedy to stark moments of pathos and loss. In addition, both build upon well worn tropes in the sci-fi/mecha genre and update them with self-awareness. Each protagonist, Akito and Noriko, are anime fans who find themselves embroiled in the 'real-life' versions of their fantasies to do battle against an overwhelming and faceless enemy and must reconcile the disparity.

The primary characters are perfect replicas of each other.

Their AI as well is expanded upon learning more and more about humans whether it is done through direct interaction with them, as seen through the struggles of Monochrome trying to become an idol, or trivia given by their closest friend, robot Ruu-chan in Monochrome's case and Gedächtnis for Drossel. Because they are both short and episodic in content, don't expect much

Like Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop shares some similarities with Iria, in that it is set in world with multiple settled planets, each with their own customs, and where space travel between them is cheap and common. Kind of a cyber-punky world. Where they differ, is that Iria and Outlaw Star, definitely have a more "far out" feel in that they seem very removed from our own world, like far future, or another galaxy. Cowboy Bebop on the other hand, clearly takes place in the future of our own present world, and includes references to the Earth, and so has some elements that tie it in with our own timeline. Cowboy Bebop is a story set in our own future, whereas Outlaw Star and Iria are much more abstract, especially Iria. However, they still share some similarities. And if you liked one, you may like the other.

One interesting similarity is that both Iria and Spike and Jet are bounty hunters. Wheras in Iria that's something of a side story, as her main priority is finding out what happened with her brother, in Cowboy Bebop it's more front and center as it's how they get paid. But both stories have many similarities both in worlds and in that the main characters are bounty hunters.

Whilst you could argue that Madan no Ou to Vanadis shares themes with many other harem shows, what it has in common with High School DxD is that they both feature a dominating female lead who has no qualms in making the main character her prisoner/servant.

Both shows have a great amount of character development. Even the side characters get their own time to shine. Also, there are no overly unrealistic elements in both shows (no super powers). It's just about normal high school students (some with born talent like Chihaya and Hinata) working hard to achieve their goals.

One of the main things that these two anime share, is very unique set designs. Both Nausicaa and Iria: Zeiram, feature some of the most unique set designs ever featured in anime. Many anime feature run of the mill buildings, or worlds that seem very similar to our own, but the toxic forest in Nausicaa and just the general world entirely in Iria, are very interesting visually. If you like anime with very unique set designs and world designs you will probably like both of these. They also share a main character of a girl who in many respects are similar in their feel. Nausicaa is more in tune with animals and nature, and is focused on her projects. Iria, is more sporty and care-free and devoted to her brother. But they both are about a story of girls who must find their own way in some aspects, though Iria is more on her own.

These anime are very similar, especially in their world aspects. Both feature a universe where there are multiple settled planets, each with their own unique customs and technology. Both feature very diverse and unique props, vehicles, and cultural designs. You will see props being used in these anime that are very unique. You could almost think that they are different stories about different people in the same world, though they have a slightly different feel. Iria is about a girl searching for answers about her brother who has disappeared, and her interactions with a strange creature that seems to have some political aspects surrounding it that are more than meets the eye. Outlaw Star is about a captain of a special ship he has acquired, (and his friends and crew) that are dealing with searching for something called the Galactic Ley Line, and having to dodge shady crime syndicate people who want his ship while searching for his goal. One of the things that makes these anime similar also, is that Gene Starwind and Iria are similar characters in some respects. For example, whenever they get into a pinch, they both use a lot of interesting gadgets to get out of it. However Outlaw Star is more of a team effort sometimes, and Iria goes it alone mostly, they're still very interesting characters in similarity. Gene is more of a grumpy hot head, and Iria is more of a sporty girl with a motherly side who is devoted to her brother, but especially in terms of their gadgets and such, there's a lot of similarity.

Both anime are very similar in some aspects. If you like one you would probably like the other.

These anime are very similar in many aspects. Both feature a post-apocalyptic world featuring a boy and girl main character. Both feature the boy having to protect the the girl from some danger and politics. Both feature serious elements as well as lighthearted elements at times. Conan is done by Hayao Miyazaki, and so features a lighter tone that it wraps it's more serious elements up in. Green Legend Ran is a bit more serious and features some graphic violence, romantic themes, and even some downright pervyness at times, so is more "grown up" in it's feel. But both are very similar in many ways. Green Legend Ran has a kind of "Final Fantasy 7" sort of feel to some aspects of it's story. Both are also classic anime, and definitely worth checking out.

Eden of the East focuses on a more serious and deep plot full with mystery right from the beginning, without using characters as props(Oh the yandere girl we all know), and Mirai Nikki focuses more on romance if you can call this thing a romance. Both have awesome opening songs and revovle around mystery and games of life and death. If you liked Higashi no Eden and you're into paranoid infatuated girls, you should definately watch Mirai Nikki, you're bound to like it

While the manga of JoJo is seen as one of the forefathers of standard battle manga/anime, Ushio to Tora's manga is seen as one of the forefathers of youkai battle manga/anime.

Both of these anime have an old-school feel to them and are re-adaptations of manga that got sub-par OVAs years ago. Also, they both have great action scenes and can get a bit brutal at times (JoJo especially).

Both anime should be watched before other mainstream shounen because they have influenced those mainstream shounen. At least, that's what I think.

A high school girl (Himiko/Himeko) is suddenly thrown into an otherworldly situation with her closest friend to fulfil a predetermined destiny under a long-hailed title (Boka/Solar Priestess). Both animes have some pretty legendary action scenes, heavy supernatural elements and a ton of drama. They're both 12 episodes as well so good if you're looking for someone shorter; and relatively happy endings.
