Skull Man
add
Hey you, yes you, do you like action? Do you like Japanese style Henshin heroes such as Super Sentai or Kamen Rider? That my friends is what these two shows have in common.

What they don't share however, is tone. Sadamitsu the Destroyer is a lighthearted, almost parody of Tokusatsu style shows, while Skull Man is a serious, dark take on similar concepts. Additionally, Skull Man came out six years later then Sadamitsu and was animated by studio Bones and not studio Deen, meaning it has far, far better animation.

But, if you enjoyed one, or tokusatsu shows in general (which is probably why you ended up here in the first place) you'll most likely enjoy the other so long as you go in with the right expectations.

SKET Dance
add
Both shows present three people performing odd jobs in the most hilarious way. I generally believe that Sket Dance was initially influenced by Gintama, as its creator, Kenta Shinohara, was originally Sorachi's assistant. Additionally, both series have their "dark" sides and sad moments mainly rotating around their characters' backstories. Nevertheless, both animes (and mangas) are original and enjoyable in their own way.

Yuri and Haruhi are similar characters, both energetic, group leaders, and struggling against resignation; Yuri doesn't want to dissapear and re-do her life, and Haruhi rejects the idea of having an ordinary life and dissapear from the world without anyone that remind her.

Despite the melancholic concept that both shows can hold, there is a lot of comedy into them, and the atmosphere it's similar as for slice of life, and also comedy is referred.

Kuroko no Basket and Days have similar MCs
-love the sport

They are both centered around team sports, one is about basketball while the other is about soccer. Teamwork is important and the teams are strong in both animes. While the MCs in Kuroko no Basket had a different and specific goal, the two shows are very similar to each other in their essence and atmosphere. They are both sports anime with comedy, maybe more so in Kuroko no Basket.

Shounen Maid and Ouran High School Host club is very similar character wise. The leads are very similar in which they are very independent, meet wacky people, and have a similar background story. Their life after a major change is pretty similar as well. The wacky characters that surround them have similar characteristics. The storyline is very similar. A kid who lost his mother is thrown into a whirlwind change, discovering that he has a pretty well off uncle. On the other hand, the kid wants to follow in her mother who passed away's foot steps (occupation wise), so attends a high society high school and got thrown into a whirlwind change. Plot and Character wise is pretty similar. But Shounen Maid is more about family and everyday life while Ouran is more about cheesy comedic stunts and romance.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

If you've seen them both then you'll know this is an obvious comparison.
Slight spoilers for story premises here, but nothing that would ruin either for you if you haven't seen them yet.

Both of these Anime are by White Fox, and have more or less the same story structure and premise: The main character has the power to rewind time somehow, and this interferes with the natural order of things. As such, they lose people they care about, and end up going back again and again, growing increasingly desperate, as they try to get the perfect result.

Both stories have a great deal of intrigue and mystery to them as well and are, at least in my opinion, utterly unpredictable.

Both well worth watching, I highly recommend both.

*In case you are asking if Symphonia takes place before or after Zestiria:it's a little tricky to explain but think of it as like final fantasy when each title has its own little universe,but there are some games that take place in the same universe like for example:
- Symphonia takes place a few hundred years before tales of phantasia(the first game of tales to be released. btw the phantasia anime isn't that good in my opinion so if you want to know about phantasia i would recommend for you to play the playstation port of the game but thats for you to decide)

In ReLIFE, the main character becomes a highschooler again instead of contacting himself through time travel. ReLIFE doesn't really have actual time travel.

Also they both have plenty of romance and drama, but Orange has way more of those while ReLIFE tends to focus more on comedy and not so much on the drama.

- Both animes have a fantasy scenario portraying, mainly, a war between two great factions/empires.
- Both MC are clearly great commanders
- The war development is mainly based on the strategy and tactics and is often compared to chess/shogi (side note: both MCs excel on chess)
- Although the main combat is focused on large-scale combat, there are some good duels and small-scale fights
- There is a lot of polictics involved in the war and the MC seems to be related to the nobility
- Both worlds are kinda messed up, with the main empire focusing on war and having great economic, political and social issues.

Both animes have great characters with an actual personality, every character has its own development, both psychologically and on skills and *quasi-spoiler ahead* both MCs seem to be fated to fix the world, doing it not necessarily by just winning wars.

The atmosphere and characters are very similar, and they are both directed by Kenichi Kasai. Hikari and Futaba strongly resemble Akira and Fumi respectively in both appearance and personality. Both shows have a school setting, deal with a club, and have strong yuri vibes. A difference is that Amanchu! has much more comedy.

Berserk (2016)
add
An adaptation that had potential but is a mix of greatness and fail.
Both failed at being faithful to their source material, since Berserk feels like a half-edgy shounen when it's one of the best dark fantasy seinen, and Terraformars lost the horror factor.
Berserk condenses too much material while Terraformars is too dragged out, and both end of course incomplete.
The fighting feems campy, as intended for Terraformars, but not in the original Berserk, and there is in particular a recurring sound effect of a punch getting sucked into void for Terraformars and the Dragonslayer hitting like a fry pan in Berserk...
Watch only for some cool moments, but read the source material.

So far, I prefer Cromartie. It's definitely more manly too.

Psychological battles of sorts in bizarre settings.
JoJo is campy while Psi is a parody, so they are different genres, but similar.
Psi has references to JoJo, such as a Jotaro-lookalike in the early episodes, sound texts representing intense situations, characters spelling their character's strategy and thinking a counter to it, a glorious GAR narrator explaining concepts in a bombastic style, shorts arcs, a silent protagonist (mostly applies to Jotaro again), etc.
Both are great anime, though JoJo is obviously the better one.

add
Top-tier psychological fights.

A unique GAR art-style with:
- angular character designs,
- manly tears
- and a glorious campy narrator making lengthy explanations with exaggerated metaphors and emphasis on the situation.

A very good balance of smart/stupid.
For example, at the beginning of some arcs, you will feel like the drama is overdone, the characters state obvious things with emphasis, which is made worse by the narrator, with a situation going nowhere, but actually, it is a very good setup for the following events to unfold in the witty cerebral fights, down to the sillier moments, who also set the mood for the bizarre situations occurring.
I still get had very often about this. "Geez, this episode is a bit cringey, did it get worse or was I a fool?". but then it picks up, and I feel all the greatness once again...

Kaiji in particular will spend chapters/episodes setting out a situation, where it's often obvious Kaiji will lose, and you wonder what they will be able to do with such games whose outcomes seem random, especially with all the time they used up already, but it's handled very well. Just go along with it at first, you'll be rewarded and you'll end up trusting the series.

These anime adaptations are very good (MadHouse, David Pro!), but they are a bit dragged out at times (the first cour for JoJo and the second for Kaiji). On one hand, they're faithful adaptations, and you can actually enjoy the sometime lengthy arcs if you consider it as suspense (since they've finished airing, you won't feel the frustration of waiting for the conclusion of an arc, and it'll always be less dragged out than most perpetually on-going fighting shounen).
Thanks to experience, this got fixed in the latest season of JoJo, and MadHouse would probably do so if they animated the following arcs of Kaiji!

Kaiji is a bit more serious and much more realistic. but both are well written, dead characters stay dead, there is very little plot convenience, the arcs are not repetitive and dragged out, ...
JoJo was the most influential. It probably influenced Kaiji too.

The greatest aspect of their similarities lies in the light summer theme they share. Refreshing, breezy series revolving around water one way or another with personal relationships at the center; a perfect combination for a relaxing time.

While Tsuritama is a bit on the sci-fi genre with a few supernatural phenomena, they both include a friendship between a socially awkward person and an extremely energetic, albeit difficult to understand at times, one and how they affect each other. Simple comedy that relies on the characters' interactions on an everyday basis and when it comes to it, a story about growing up and discovering your potential. As a bonus, the art of each is very colorful and captures the essence of summer which makes them even easier to watch.

Do you like an amazingly written plot which actually moves forward very subtly and an outstanding cast of cute, all-female characters? Both K-On as well as New Game have this in store for you! Both animes are about an all-female cast having fun together, while subtly reaching a goal which doesn't seem obvious at the time but is revealed at the end. Just as in K-on, New Game has this awesome chemistry between all the characters, as they're all friends working towards the same goal. They eat and drink together, have fun together and work hard together. Both shows rely heavily on cuteness and comedy, while being very subtle about it's plot line.
