Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (TV)
I've always been looking for a similiar anime to GTO, and I think many others do. GTO was just amazing and I didn't want it to end.
And since I found a similiar anime on par with GTO I thought to share it with the other members here :D
They're both about special teachers who care about their studends and help them grow.
Even though one is a delinquent and the other is some kind of lab-created monster.
As the series goes on they will help their students with daily life issues, go on field trips and many other stuff.
U should watch it!

If you liked
FLCL
...then you might like
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
FLCL and Higurashi are very similar because you will not have any idea about what is going on whatsoever. The only diffrerence is that FLCL could be called very bizarre and Higurashi is rather slightly extremely grotesque.
If you liked
Fractale

Sword Art Online
They are both set in the future and both use virtual reality to enhance the world as we know it. Definitely watch it. (^_-)
If you liked
Special A
...then you might like
Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
Special A has similar comedy to Kaichou wa Maid-sama. They both focus on school, but Maid-sama has a little special twist (the maids café) and so does Special A (Special A program). Both main characters (girls) have a "rival"/competitor or someone (a boy, of course) that's ranked higher/better at things than they are. The boys from both shows have a similar personality. If you enjoyed one of these shows, then you'd enjoy the other!
If you liked
Togainu no Chi
...then you might like
DRAMAtical Murder
Two BL games that have been adapted to TV with the BL entirely omitted.

Both have poor animation, poor production, and are an overall boring experience!

Play the games! They are 10x better!
If you liked
Kokoro Connect
...then you might like
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV)
Body switching fun... Yamada seems more silly as of how far it is through airing, but they revolve around a similar premise.
If you liked
Bleach
...then you might like
Ao no Exorcist
Follows the whole after death, soul searching morality feels.
If you liked
Death Note
...then you might like
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)
Particularly speaking to JoJo part 2, both shows have a brilliantly executed focus on strategies, plans, often shown through monological thoughts. What Death Note draws from the suspense of psychological mystery, JoJo draws from the suspense of action and character. I don't usually use MAL's recommendation system since it uses 1 on 1 comparisons, but I was surprised that this aspect of JoJo isn't mentioned much. I wouldn't quite call JoJo similar to Death Note, but it has very similar mind grabbing means of effecting the reader, albeit much farther on a dramatic line than a serious one.
If you liked
Special A

MC in Lollipop just has a magical item inside her.

Kamisama is more about supernatural powers
Lollipop is more about sorcery.

One is older and less popular.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken
Although Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken has shorter episodes it has nothing to be jealous of when it comes to comparing it to other comedy anime!

If you liked
Re-Kan!

Kyoukai no Rinne (TV)
Both anime have the supernatural feature very present, and thats their main similarity!(esepcially thats the similarity of both the heroins)
Both of them are also hilarious though they have a different kind of humour!
They have also the same atmosphere, school and normal Japanese life!
Their animation is kinda different-as Kyoukai no Rinne follows Rumiko Takahasi's usual style-but both are fun to watch!!!

If you liked
Neon Genesis Evangelion
...then you might like
Mars of Destruction
Mars of Destruction is almost an exact replica of NGE. Whiny protagonist basically forced by his dad to operate his creation? Check. Mostly female cast excluding Not-Shinji and his father? Check. Unfitting usage of classical compositions? Check.

But this goes beyond just similar trope usage and goes straight for plagiarizing character designs and dialogue. Great for NGE fans who want a good laugh
If you liked
Noragami
...then you might like
Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
Both have romance, adventure and I find the main characters to be similar in how they meet and the relationship slowly develops and they fall for each other, both are amazing

If you liked
Yakitate!! Japan
...then you might like
Hunter x Hunter (2011)
- they both revolve around a really talented/special boy
- they both involve a really long adventure where the boy matures and becomes even more talented
- both include elements of comedy; Yakitate!! Japan has more comedy though

Yakitate!! Japan is about bread/baking/food/cooking. Hunter x Hunter (2011) is more about fighting/strength.

Despite the fundamental difference, they both encompass a similar style!!
If you liked
FLCL
...then you might like
Kekkai Sensen
FLCL And Kekkai Sensen have unexpectedly a lot in common. A young male protagonist who finds himself in bizarre circumstances with no control over the situation, quirky characters, strange things happening one after another, intense battles and slick animation, rowdy humor and insane amounts of collateral damage that everyone seems to forget about by the next episode. FLCL is a more tightly, condensed show that focuses primarily on the protagonist's growth, while Kekkai Sensen is more plot focused and less psychological. If you like the story telling and battle elements in one you'll find the other very familiar.
If you liked
Mouretsu Pirates
...then you might like
Girls und Panzer
Both Pirates and Panzer have great character development, while not necessarily similar on face value, they struck the same cord with me.

Also, i just really like girls working together to achieve goals! All that moe and such
If you liked
Ao no Exorcist
...then you might like
Owari no Seraph
Somehow while watching Owari no Seraph, it gave me a feeling that both main character's personality are somewhat similar to each other. Both of them are hotheaded, overconfident and believe that they do not need the training to face the enemy.
If you liked
Kamisama Hajimemashita
...then you might like
Noragami
Both shows feature a normal girl entering the world of minor deities (in Noragami, the girl becomes a half-phantom and befriends a little-known deity; in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the girl becomes a little-known deity herself).

Both shows feature a romantic thread and have a moderate (IMO the correct) amount of comedy.
If you liked
Nichijou
...then you might like
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun happily pokes fun at the tropes and quirks of manga in a similar way to how Nichijou pokes fun at anime. Both are drop-dead hilarious, with interesting casts, and a good balance of continuous plot and random one-time jokes.
If you liked
Scrapped Princess
...then you might like
Utawarerumono
Same genre of fantasy post modern world theme.
If you liked
Aldnoah.Zero
...then you might like
Owari no Seraph
This two anime series give a similar vibe, since there are two main guys on different "sides" (in the case of Aldnoah one fights with Earth and the other one Mars, in Seraph one with the humans and the other one with the vampires)
And not just that, but the characters of Mika and Slaine are really similar - both of them feel they are "betraying" their own "sides".
Both series also have schools that train children in order for them to fight against their enemies
So, even though Seraph doesn't have any mechas unlike Aldnoah, I think that if you like one of them, watching the other one you'll see how similar they are, and enjoying one of them will make you like the other one as well.

Anime are similar, because they say the same, namely the conquest of Japan by Oda Nobunaga. What is interesting in both anime characters they are moved from the future to the Sengoku period. Both history are stretched to some degree, but keeping historical range.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)
The 2nd Part of JoJo (Episodes 10 - 26), emphasises heavily on the use of the heroes defeating physically superior opponents through thought out tactics and adapting to their situation, something FMA is constantly praised for. Both series also have a strong emphasis on themes of family, the difference being that FMA focuses on the ideals of the interaction between family members, whereas JoJo focuses more on the importance of a bloodline's principals and inherited will.
If you liked
Diamond no Ace
...then you might like
Haikyuu!!
When I watched this show, one thing constantly popped up in my head. That was, "This show is incredibly similar to Haikyu".
Not only do these shows revolve around high school sports, but the main characters are determined first years who are striving to be the 'ace' of their team. In an instant, they develop a rivalry with another boy but realize quickly that the team cannot do well without either of them. The main event of both shows is the yearly national high school tournament in which they partake, attempting to bring back their high school's former glory. With lots of practise and intense matches, both main character's skills begin to shine, gaining them acknowledgement from their 3rd year seniors who for them, this will be one of their last if not their last high school tournament.
If you liked
Kotoura-san

Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu
Pretty similar characters.
Both anime has female main characters who are having difficulties to get along with other people. Yuki-chan mainly because she's too shy and quiet while Kotoura-san was avoided by people because she has a power to read people's mind. Both of them then meets a boy who lighten their previously gloomy days. They also eventually meets a girls who are really passionate to prove the existence of psychical phenomena.
Manabe, the MC of Kotoura-san also looks like Kyon.

Magic Knight Rayearth is more of an adventure show though while Mai-HiME is in a school setting.

Hunter x Hunter (2011)
Both start with a young guy that starts a journey looking for his dreams.

If there is a difference between this 2 shows .. Hunter x Hunter is way better than One Piece at almost every single point.

Not so childish characters/plot plus some epic moments that will just amaze you.

If you liked One Piece .. i can´t see how you will hate Hunter x Hunter ..
If you liked
Psycho-Pass
...then you might like
Plastic Memories
Psycho-Pass and Plastic Memories shares several similarities. Both stories consists of characters that are forced to deal with a certain problem densely woven into their everyday normal lives in a near-futuristic society, which is as common as breathing air. Both anime have teams of usually two, which consists of a higher-ranking person who oversees the other who handles the dirty work. In each anime, the higher-ranking person are also armed with a highly destructive technologically advanced gun that shoots a projectile beam of light, capable of incapacitating or obliterating their partner--but mainly used for only dangerous threats. Both stories deal with smaller problems in their individual pairs, but find that it's all just part of a much bigger conspiracy that may be too much for them to handle...at least not alone, or with their usual methods.

The main differences are that Psycho-Pass is far more darker, has a high death-toll, and is very gory (not suitable for children or people with a weak stomach). On the other hand, Plastic Memories is very light-hearted most of the time, with a lot of emotional drama than anything else, and occasional action that keep things exciting.

Aldnoah.Zero
Similarities:
- Has action, mecha and military theme and a little bit of school setting

- Male protagonist are professional mecha robot users and works for the military

Differences:
- FMP is more comedy/romance oriented

- Aldnoah.Zero takes place mostly in space
- FMP is about protecting people from teorrists, while Aldnoah is war between Earth and Mars

I recommend to watch FMP if you like mecha with action/romance. They reminds of each other due to the mecha robots animation. Although the charachter designs are different. FMP is from 2002, but it has just as good animation as Code Geass from 2006+.

The art resembles each other and they are both relatively new-released anime series. Both male MC starts of weak, but gets stronger the more they fight and experience. Akame ga Kill is a must-watch if you are to medieval genre and want lesser fanservice. Besides there's more action scenes in Akame. Dungeon (...) is more comedy/romance oriented, but also has fighting scenes.

Both series reminds of each other even if they have a decade release date in between them. Even though FMP is from 2002, the animation resembles Code Geass animation, and therefore you should not worry about the quality/art.

Similarities:
- A male and a female protagonist

- Action/Mecha/Comedy/Romance genre & theme

Differences:
- Story approach is slightly different because Aquerion involves fantasy/supernatural elements, while FMP involves military elements

Recommendation:
If you like action, mecha and romance mixed together, then i will highly recommend these series. Both of them are very good, and reminds of each other. Besides, you don't have to be afraid of the FMP animation even though it is from 2002. The animation is actually pretty decent and can be compared to Code Geass animation from 2006.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2
because, this anime has a main character (Lelouch) unique and almost the same as the main character anime death note (Light). berceritakan about a young boy who wants to change the world, but in a different way. Lelouch wants to change the world a better place simply for the sake of her sister (Nunnaly). This anime is interesting to watch because it presents something different from other anime.

Kinnikuman
Both series feature incredibly heroic men, manly tears and very masculine fights.
While Kinnikuman is more humorous in tone, Kinnikuman's characters are just as likable as the cast of Hokuto No Ken.

Kinnikuman
Both are old school shonen of the 1980's which originally debuted as comedies but gradually become focused on tournament battles. A flaw in both shows are characters constantly dying only to be revived in some ludicrous method. However, both shows are so outrageously manly that you will look over some low points.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
The deconstruction genre is present in allot of anime for primarily short periods of time.

Code Geass has allot of elements and feelings that represent Evangelion in a few ways. Although, the protagonist differ from one another, both Evangelion and Code Geass come very close in the long term for just general deconstruction in the anime's themselves.

Arakawa Under the Bridge
Ok, this is how its similar, you take a few random crazy characters and a sane one, then you put them in senarios and see how it plays out.
Also, the character design in Arakawa Under the Bridge and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is very VERY similar.
If you liked
Di Gi Charat Nyo
...then you might like
Etotama
Moe anthropomorphism design aside, Etotama and Di Gi Charat Nyo has an energetic albeit dumb female main character that freeloading with their human tenant. It has the similar type of gag comedy and puns along with the occasional breaking the 4th wall. There is also a common trope of strong rivalry with one of their anthropomorphic kin and occasional friendships bonding and battle.

The themes on Di Gi Charat Nyo is more random as it was composed of short gags of their daily life, while Etotama is mainly focused on the battle-of-the-week that is done by Nya-tan. Although judging by their appearances, they might seem comparable, Dejiko is not a real 'catgirl' like Nya-tan, however, their mischievous and whimsical nature is very much alike, they also have a cat like verbal-ticks at the end of every sentence.

I highly recommend this series for the gags and parody.
