Tokyo Ghoul

Zankyou no Terror
BOTH:
-From a perspective that is considered a threat to society. (Terrorists, Ghouls)
-Involve a team of investigators tracking down our main protagonists.
-Are set in the city of Tokyo.
-Have similar art styles.
-Have similar tones/moods.
-Have similar music.
-Have characters which seem threatening on the outside, but have relatively good intentions.

One huge thing that I love about both of these animes and believe is the main similarity between both, is that they are from perspectives that you would not expect. The stories are told from point-of-views that clash with human society, yet you find justice in both sides. With 'Tokyo Ghoul' you see things from the ghouls' point-of-view. Ghouls eat humans, yet I find myself routing for them, as well, and then my feelings contradict. In 'Terror in Resonance' you see things from the terrorists' point-of-view, who are considered dangerous to the public, but I end up becoming more interested in the terrorists' story. Both question views of society. I like that they stray from the norm and make the audience think about what justice is and what it is not.
Both are set in the city of Tokyo which I personally like. I love the night scenes in both of them; it has a huge impact on the mood. They share clear-cut visuals when it comes to animation, lighting, and colors. I think anyone who has seen one or the other should make sure they've seen both. ;)

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
It is also a shoujo parody, with colorful unique characters and a goofy, light energy. (And if you like Nozaki-kun, Ouran is the ESSENTIAL shoujo parody show, go watch it NOW!)

No.6
Both are set in a futuristic setting in which the government wants to have full control over it's residents. They also share the same type of protagonist, a young boy suddenly ripped out of his surroundings and now has to learn the truth behind his ideal world. You also can see some similarities in other characters like Nezumi is pretty much like Keith.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch

Guilty Crown
When a power undeserved by humans find its path to a user, it's imperative that it is used for a good cause regardless on how difficult it is to achieve that noble goal. The saying 'With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility' comes into play. The bearer of such immense power must shoulder the boundless weight of responsibility and be prepared to accept whatever sacrifices this sorrow path may bring till the very end. The main characters of both series were given an ability unimaginable on the surface by an unknown female whose intention is not known and they are bounded to face any challenges along the way to fulfill their respective ambitions.

'Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch' parades on the suffering of the people when one country loses to another. The main character founds himself constricted in between as he hold both countries dear to him and is prepare to sacrifice even his own family to ensure a peaceful resolution is reached. Knowing what he always wanted to accomplish and being the sole mastermind behind all the calamities that followed, he takes the path of a dark knight and influence both nations from within whether it's through honesty and trust, or lies and deceit. Unknowingly to him, a dark secret lies hoping to be discovered and he may not be the only one to possess such a gift.

'Guilty Crown' puts the center of attention to a naive main character who is drawn into a battle written by fate. Unlike 'Code Geass', the main character is sitting as a secondary and would only begin to take responsibility when he witnessed the people close to him perishing away. Not having a clear downright goal, he fights solely to protect the ones he loved and is willing to pay the ultimate price for his actions even against other bearers who like him, possesses the same ability which would put them on a higher level closer to god but would love nothing more than to see despair and destruction. Storywise, it may not be as enticing as 'Code Geass' but its top notch animations and music makes it worthy of attention.

Terra Formars OVA
Both have much gore and blood. Even the best ones does not survive.
In both the enemy is bigger and stronger, and have unknown way of communicating.
In both they use genetic engineering to gain andvantage over the enemy.
In both the enemy is unsolved enigma. And they cannot win unless they solve it.

Of course they have plenty of diferences, but the gore is what it makes them similar to each other.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Kill la Kill
Both are incredibly enjoyable but ungodly stupid animes. Gurren Lagann is better because it has better animation (although even Lagann has it's spotty moments in it's animation), it's characters overall are better and Lagann wins points for being more original since it did it first because lets face Kill La Kill's basically a female version of Gurren Lagann with super powered school uniforms (trust me, it's more retarded than it sounds).

Both shows are about passion and purely passion. They don't care about logic, subtly, they don't even care if they're filled with clich├ęs or not and yet neither of these are comedies or spoofs (for the most part, it's hard to tell sometimes especially with KLK if they're farses or not) they both shouldn't work at all but somehow they do. I love these animes the same way I love The Avengers, I love the characters, it's fun to watch but they're not masterpieces in anyway but I don't think they're suppose to be, they're just fun animes nothing more, it's just the fans that share that same passion that think these are masterpieces.

Aria the Origination
Both Aria the Origination and Haibane Renmei are slice of life, with themes of growing up and a strong melancholy undertone. Both also have beautiful art and settings inspired by Europe, though Aria's is Italian and Haibane Renmei's is Central European. Haibane Renmei is not as sweet and happy as Aria, and it uses fantasy elements where Aria uses sci-fi elements, but both shows are beautiful, moving, and use combine slice of life stories with great art and likable characters.

Barakamon
The main lead characters share an unique bond throughout both series despite their contrasting differences from the beginning. There's an initial development as they learn more about each other and what they enjoy in life. The main male protagonist shares similar personalities and at times can become frustrated at certain events. However, they often take on life as it is with smiles and joy. When it comes down to it, relationship dynamics are a key focus in both series. Recommended for any viewers interested in a charming slice of life.

Little Busters (and Refrain) is everything that Angel Beats should have been.
While they are very similar, Little Busters succeeds in its storytelling unlike Angel Beats which succeeds merely in production value alone.
