Both of these comedies work at the same pace, moving fast, but giving the audience enough time to get invested in the shenanigans and appreciate the execution. Both also work on the same magnitude, creating absurd, random scenes while maintaining a sense of cohesion, as if all of their events are happening within the set parameters of their own quirky little world.

Last, but not least, both have lovable, extremely expressive characters with great voice actors. What more could you ask for?

Space☆Dandy
add
Space Dandy is pretty much the spiritual successor to Cowboy Bebop, or at the very least, an ascended AU. If you watch one, you have to watch the other (preferably watching Cowboy Bebop first).

While Bebop is serious, occasionally breaking out into comedic scenes, Dandy is comedic, occasionally breaking out into serious scenes. Regardless, both share a style and flair that help them stand out from the often cliché-riddled sci-fi genre.

add
Both handle complicated social concepts is a very mature manner. They tell a concrete story, but leave the verdict of whether the actions characters take are ultimately right or wrong up to the viewer.

Outside of the expressive minimalist art style the two share, what struck me the most about both of these is the use of silence in sound design. Both of these shows have a lot of scenes in which there's sparse music and dialogue, creating this personal, uncomfortable, and awkward feeling that greatly works to the shows' advantage.

Both shows base a portion of their humor off misunderstandings. While these misunderstandings are often unintentional, they develop into running gags that last throughout the course of the entire show. Both shows also utilize a medium-sized cast full of colorful, quirky characters whose interactions lay the foundation for good, well-timed situational-based and relationship-based humor. And, finally, the setting and premise are pretty similar. After all, Gekkan Shoujo and Tanaka-kun are both centered around the lives of "normal" high school students.

Anime: Osomatsu-san
...then you might like
Osomatsu-san
add
The most obvious recommendation I could make.

The two share the same director, and it really shows. They both have the same comedic timing, utilize pop culture references, and are completely littered with dirty humor. Both also occasionally get serious, which is something that often doesn't work in comedy-focused anime, but this director and the writers are REALLY good at blending it so it feels genuine and not heavy-handed.

In fact, if I had to describe Osomatsu-san, I'd say it was what happens when you give Fujita a 50 year old show and tell him to go wild.

Wait, why am I suggesting Gintama on MAL? You guys all know Gintama is great, lol.

While Tsuritama doesn't root its focus on its particular sport, opting to go the slice-of-life route, both are shows about lovable guys who mature through their dedication to an active passion. The two also share a colorful art style and engaging character dynamics.

Honestly, I'm kind of surprised nobody else has made this recommendation. Most of the people I've seen who like Tsuritama also like Haikyuu and there's a considerable amount of crossover fanart, considering how relatively unknown Tsuritama is.

Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai has some similarities with the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise such as both being set in a school setting, both being comedy anime and even the main characters being gods: Katsuragi Keima and Haruhi Suzumiya. However, what is common with the Haruhi Movie and the KNZSS Goddess Arc is that they are both the serious side of comedy anime.

If you like one of them, you would really enjoy the other one!

I've seen a lot of negative criticism for this show - mainly surrounding our main characters Sawako and Shota - many say they are bland and boring personalities with no likeable or dislikeable traits, and I think I would have to agree with that. But if there's one thing that Toradora has going for it it's a pair of interesting and unique protagonists that really keep the show interesting and fun throughout. Both of these shows are amazing shoujos, however, so I highly recommend you watch both anyway.

Each of these series has a bit of romance and disguises a darker plot in a very colorful vibrant world. Neither series takes itself very serious as they each have their share of parody moments.

Pretty much both of them are Comedy/Slice of life anime with lots of random jokes implemented in them. They also dont have a specific plot in which the story follows. However, Nichijou may have extreme events such as a talking cat, your school director fighting with a deer and even "destroying planets with laser beams " while DKNN shows the life of Highschool boys and their "boring" lives.
Nichijou shows all the characters and their traits while DKNN mostly shows "boys" acting like "boys".

add
I saw someone else compare it to this, and I can kinda get behind it.

Due to production issues in both, the endings of the actual shows (Neon Genesis Evangelion and Wolf's Rain) were not well-received and were generally unsatisfactory. For NGE, it was budget problems, network censorship, and time constraints. For Wolf's Rain, it was the SARS outbreak of 2003 in Asia that dug its fangs (pun intended, haha!) into the production of the show.

However, End of Evangelion and Wolf's Rain OVA came along and saved the day, delivering a far stronger ending than the originals could. Some may disagree, but I think fans of the respective series were glad they got them.

- Both Elizabeth and Tatsumi set out on an adventure, with Tatsumi being in Night Raid and Elizabeth with the Seven Deadly Sins.
- Both destroy their country, Night Raid destroys the country, while Nanatsu no Taizai destroys the Holy Knight.

The main similarity that came to my mind was the art-style and atmosphere: both Tanaka-kun and Isshuukan Friends have that adorable, fluffy art and feeling, which is standard for Hazuki Maacha (Mangaka of the latter). Both also have a very likeable cast of characters that are generally soft-spoken and rarely raise their voice and both also have (somewhat) subtle romance parts. Lastly, both will most likely be some of the more relaxing things you'll ever see (excluding the final part of 'IF' for this one) and can turn even the shittiest day around in a heartbeat.

Both stories follow a group of characters trying to get out of miserable/desperate situations. The primary antagonists of the series are very similar in terms of their sadistic nature. Throughout the series, the protagonists are seemingly offered ways out of their dire circumstances by the antagonists, but those chances are often intended to merely provide false hope to the protagonists. Both series have a very "hard-boiled"/"bad-ass" vibe to them. Both were produced by Madhouse in the late 2000s and have fairly similar animation styles.

Both shows feature "ordinary looking" main characters who, although they once were completely ordinary, have gained supernatural powers. However, I'd say Boku no Hero Academia is a "school life" anime as well as a superhero one, and is a little bit less violent than One Punch Man. For this reason, I think Boku no Hero Academia is a bit more suited for kids. Both are really funny though!

Samurai Flamenco tells the story of a lifelong fan of Tokusatsu series who never gave up on his childhood dreams of becoming a real-life Tokusatsu character. Despite certain violent moments, either series sticks to an optimistic feel.

Furiko crafts a tighter and more engaging narrative with more compelling characters in four minutes and 20 seconds than Angel Beats! manages to accomplish in four hours and 20 minutes. If you want a recommendation for Angel Beats, you're almost certainly looking for a recommendation for a tearjerker. While I wouldn't personally classify either of these as tearjerkers (because they didn't jerk any tears from me, and that's how I define it), they both fall into the same tone and even use incredibly similar themes.

Code Geass take heavy inspiration from LOGH, and some may come to say Geass is the "teenage shounen" version of LOGH.

I prefer LOGH, because it's much more fleshed out compared to Geass. I would recommend LOGH to most people I know, while I would only recommend Geass to someone who can get by it's "edgy teenage drama" feel.

If you like Parasyte you'd like Tokyo Ghoul because Tokyo Ghoul was heavily inspired by the old 90s Parasyte manga. They both have a half human half monster protagonist that used to be a wimpy nobody. In addition, they have this dark tone that makes you feel awful about what's happening to the protagonist.

The similarities in plot, and characters make it to where if you like one the other will bring you enjoyment.
