Similarities:

• They both feature mature and dark themes, one of which being mistreatment, prevalent in both series.

• They both feature children in a central position for the story.

• In addition to this, they both focus on a war or fights the children are forced to fight by their circumstances.

• While said children also have similar circumstances that they are forced to fight by the political structure or ruler they're under for the benefit of said organization.

• Both are short series.

Differences:

• While both series are somewhat science fiction-ish, Now and Then, Here and There is more fantastic as it features time travel and creatures of another planet, while the only thread Gunslinger Girl has is that the girl have their bodies turned semimechanical, which is the premise for the series.

• While the rule posed on the children is somewhat morally ambivalent in execution for Gunslinger Girl, the children of Now and Then, Here and There are ruled by a tyrant.

• The children of Gunslinger Girl are supervised by a guardian and they are explored as characters through that relationship. Now and Then, Here and There doesn't use that technique and instead focuses mostly on the direction on the story to explore them.

• Ironically, the overwhelming majority of children (if not all) in both series are of the opposite gender of the other.

• The children come under the control of each organization from drastically different circumstances.

these two shows are similar in how Yuki and Ganta are both trust in to a death game they don't want to be in along with some new found supernatural powers with a strong female yandere along with them. in my opinion the branches of sin is a cooler power than a future diary however this means that there are some cool action scenes in Deadman Wonderland due to the powers but Mirai Nikki has a more psychological edge to it. both are brilliant shows.

If you enjoyed sword art online then you'll enjoy Gakusen Toshi Asterick since both have a plethora of hot girls and swords. Both main characters looks eerily familiar and share a similar appearance and personality, so if you want to see more Kirito go check out Gakusen Toshi Asterick. Both shows were made by A1 pictures so you won't be disappointed by the confusingly fast and flashy fight scenes seen in both shows. However, the music is lovely and the pretty colors and character designs are visually appealing.

As I was watching Simoun, I couldn't stop thinking about the similarities it shares with Cross Ange. Both anime include a team of girls at a military base who must pilot machines to defend against invaders. Shoujo ai/yuri themes are present in both anime, but Cross Ange has way more fanservice than Simoun. There's a lot of drama between characters, although there's a lot more drama in Simoun, and Simoun gets way more serious than Cross Ange. As the series progress, we learn what happens when the characters unlock the full power of the machines they pilot, and more about the world the characters live in is revealed. To top it all off, both series have a pretty cool soundtrack. As for differences, Two pilots are required for the Simoun, but the mechs In Cross Ange only use 1 pilot. Furthermore, Cross Ange includes more action, while Simoun has a big religion theme with it. But in total, Simoun and Cross Ange share a lot of similarities. If you enjoyed one, then you should enjoy the other! :)

The settings are similar, both having a post-apocalyptic environment though Koutetsujou no Kabaneri has more of a Steam Punk vibe.

I would highly recommend you watch Koutetsujou no Kabaneri if you enjoyed Shingeki no Kyojin.

Now here me out before you go, "wtf! these two are nothing alike!" Well, you're not entirely wrong, but there are a lot of similarities between the two. If you're looking for a deep story line, you're in for a treat.
Similarities:
They both have awesome pacing (I am not counting the second season of Psycho Pass here).
There is no clear "antagonist" in both series. You might be able to argue on who the antagonist is, but really, it's far more abstract than that.
They question how society is run and why things are the way things are.
Both, unfortunately, front loads the setting.
Very character driven.

Differences:
One is a police anime and the other one is about kids who live underwater and travel to the surface. That should be enough.

Both are very cute shows but Sound of the Sky has a subtle plot line that is sure to make you catch at least some feels.
If you're looking for a decent moe moe show and have already watched K-On, Sound of the Sky is surely to fill that gap. Although be warned, this is a military anime. That's all the spoils I plan on saying.

add
They have a similar feel to it.

Angel Beats starts off sort of silly but with a paranormal twist to it. Even thought it sounds like it could get serious, it mostly tries to keep a focus on the comedy side. Still it gets dark and sad at times, but it tries to balance them out.

Charlotte also has a similar start. There are mostly jokes and fun times at the start, but things get more serious as the story progresses. The difference is that once the seriousness starts, there aren't many comedic moments afterwards.

Still, both series are quiet entertaining to watch with their mix of supernatural and daily lifestyle combined. If you liked Angel Beats there is a chance you might like Charlotte and vice versa.

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 are josei period dramas about old and unique forms of Japanese art (rakugo or short poems). Both embed to a significant extent the actual content of those arts into narrative. Both are about how performing the art influences one's everyday life, dealing particularly with romance/friendships part of it. Uta Koi however is slightly postmodern, its episodes vary in tone and include elements of absurd comedy while Rakugo tells a continuous and somber story.

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.

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.

These series involve demons leaving their world and entering the human world. Maou and Staz (the main protagonists from each series) are both demos, who are overpowered, somewhat ignorant of the human world, and come across as anti-villain type good guy. 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.
