Both are shoujo romance anime that are very cute and light hearted. They keep away from drama a lot of the time. They're both about being boyfriend and girlfriend for the first time. Both anime have the main couple (or in Age 12's case, couples) get together very early on in the show so that the anime can focus on the relationship of the newly formed couples. Both anime deal with the feelings of being in a relationship for the first time and it's very quirky and adorable :3. The couples get nervous and flustered over the slightest things. The couples in both Ore Monogatari and Age 12 are madly in love with eachother but are quite naiive when it comes to being a boyfriend or girlfriend. One of the couples in Age 12 is also very similar to Yamato and Takeo.

The episodes in both anime consist of simple slice of life aspects and they're both very cute, sweet and heartwarming shows! Also both are cheesy but in a good way.

Both are relatively mellow variations on the "trapped in a fantasy game" genre. Focus is less on action/plot and more on emotional and personal relationships between characters. Both shows are unapologetic about their approach. The central themes that revolve around each show is hammered in with every episode, and results can be brutal, grueling and overwhelming in both cases.

Story wise, both shows feature protagonist(s) who are pulled into a brand new world without consent or ability to escape. Both main protagonists start out very weak, and have to accept very lowly roles first. As each series progresses, both male protagonists get braver, stronger, and more experienced. However, both carry scars, either emotional or physical, that appear as literal obstacles to them in the story.

The main difference between the two anime is the theme and personalities of the characters. Grimgar's characters are unwillingly stranded in a new world, where the first things they learn are humility and survival. ReZero's main man is an arrogant young man who retains memory from his own time, where fantasy rpgs exist. Thus ReZero's character comes off as narcissistic, naive person who doesn't fully understand the severity of his situation. Both of these ideas are heavily explored in each series, and is the main point of separation for the two main characters and each series as a whole.

On the whole, ReZero is more volatile, violent and potentially shocking, whereas Grimgar is one long, slow burning journey to the finish. But regardless, both are very good shows that provide fresh, interesting new approaches to the "trapped in a fantasy world." The art, the writing, the stories, and the characters are all very well done.

Overall, I found ReZero to be the more exciting show, while Grimgar is more soothing and relaxing.

Both of these anime revolve around the main character stopping a deadly infection before it reaches their brain, and in doing so end up unlike any species, not human nor infected. These mc's that undertake the change handle their situation with similar approaches, that being to preserve and protect human life despite their obvious condition. Another thing thats similar between these anime is the overall feel, its hard to explain but you just get the same adrenalin rush when you see the mc master their conditions. The only significant difference I can think of is the time these are set, Kiseijuu is very modern whereas Kabaneri has a more traditional look with a touch of industrialization.

I never thought that would compare them, but I can see many similarities. First, both are from the same study, Sunrise. Then, in most important aspects, we have the MC's, Gintoki and Spike, both have a sad and dark past who have decided to overcome but they feel guilty. Their personalities are similar. They have an old comrade who became the enemy and they belonged to an old group. In both anime, Yorozuya and the team aboard the Bebop, are quite peculiar and charismatics. These groups are poor and unable to complete any work. The series are episodic, Gintama more focused on comedy and satire, accompanied by drama, while in Cowboy Bebop focuses more on action and drama. Space environment. Well, Gintama and Cowboy Bebop are a little similar, but uniques and highly recommended.

Aku no Hana and King of Pigs share a similar theme of descent into darkness and it brings out the raw inner brutality of someone who is truly evil, while others are faced with a dilemma of watching themselves turn into monsters from a depersonalized perspective.
King of Pigs is dark, and it is nihilistic, but if you follow that philosophy you might see the beauty of it. It is in no way meant to actually illustrate that evil triumphs good, it is just to show that evil is there, and some people handle its presence differently.

One is set in an RPG game and the other is a promotion for one, so I do believe if you have seen one or the other this would be up your alley.

While it may seem like an unlikely recommendation, but both shows start off like it is going to be a good action/adventure but go dark really fast. I was blown away and surprised by both shows after the first episode. Something I was thinking is going to be funny and more of a comedy, but it took a wrong turn and went Madoka Magica on me.
Both shows have really nothing in common besides that, characters aren't even close to being the same, story is completely different. But both shows have amazing characters all the way through. Both shows are full of action. Full of adventure and surprises.
Watch them both and you'll see what I mean.

- Both have lovable characters that the viewer can totally relate to

The only thing that may put you off is that Sakamichi is a lot more mature than Shigatsu. Enjoy!

Also, unlike some other Harem anime where the girls are fighting against each other over the main protagonist, the female characters in both anime seem to get along really well, and there's even a sense of camaraderie with them (with a couple of exceptions). There's another similarity between the two that I won't spoil, but you'll see it if you watch both anime to their ends.

However, shoujo, with its odd art style and often bizarre plots (that Gekkan Shoujo makes fun of) can be hard to stomach for anyone that doesn't enjoy it already.
Luckily, Ouran is a "light shoujo", which makes fun of itself and is surprisingly self-aware for its genre; it also has very little if any "shoujo drama" that often puts off viewers. If it doesn't make you want to watch more shoujo, it will at least make re-watches of Gekkan Shoujo more enjoyable.

Both series deal with a minority group different from the rest of the society. In Elfen Lied, it is "diclonius" - a group of girls with special powers. And in Cross Ange, it is "norma" - again a bunch of girls but this time their difference lies in their lack of magical power that the rest of the society has. But in both cases, these girls are considered unequal to the rest and treated as less than humans. Both are considered a threat to the safery and well-being of the existing society,

In Elfen Lied, Lucy has a split personality. Aside from her dangerous nature, she is sometimes as innocent as a child. Ange, however, has a process of self-discovery in her descent from privilege to alienation. Thus, through revealing the two protagonists' diverse nature, both series question the validity of racial discrimination.

And naturally both series include violence and revenge as a reaction against discrimination, utter humiliation and alienation.

Also, Hal is a romance-oriented movie whereas Time of Eve deals much more with society vs individual issue.
Still, they are similar in the questions they raise, so if you like one, give the other a chance.

I had same emotions watching Skip Beat! and Paradise Kiss. Skip Beat! makes you laugh and wonder why the characters are so stupid, but in a funny way.The anime has been done in a great way. (You have probably watched Skip Beat! if you have watched Paradise Kiss... but still) Skip Beat! makes you fall in love with the characters and you cant help, but to continue watching. I have watched Skip Beat! several times and its not even my favorite anime. Skip Beat! has only 1 S and 25ep. And the series doesen't come to a satisfying closure, but gladly we have the manga that keeps on continuing still. (Skip Beat! is enjoyable and great even if you dont read the manga.)

If someone wants to have ragged breathing, increased heartbeat, a sense of someone behind you, or depression/anxiety. Watch both. I highly recommend doing this at night alone without the lights on, using earphones/headphones in a relatively high volume, in fullscreen, and in high brightness. Both are easy to watch. They are only 6-8 minutes long videos. They are also horror/dementia anime that might leave a mental scar inside you. Scary...

The two series share the same basic premise: a bunch of different supernatural entities independently converge on the same objective, and are therefore forced to interact with each other and one ordinary guy who's stuck in the middle. But whereas in one show, that objective is the observation of a singular high school girl, in the other it is control of a tiny (barely 100 square foot) apartment.

The main difference is in tone. Rokujouma is far more energetic, with stronger action and comedy elements, but consequently lacks the emotional impact and mystery of Haruhi.

I don't know why no one has mentioned this before, but I definitely think that jinrui was suitai shimashita shares many similarities with sabagebu. They appear different at first glance, but both involve some dark comedy (sabagebu more so) and have skit like scenarios, though jinrui actually has a bit off an overarching plot. Unlike jinrui, sabagebu leans a little towards fan service at times, but does so mostly for humor and on only a few occasions. Ultimately, if you just finished one of these series and are looking for comedy in the same ridiculous strain, I would highly recommend looking into the other.

Ok, this is probably the least similar anime you will see on the recommendation list. But the reason why I think you would love one anime if you watched the other is because of the main characters.

Even though Haikyuu's Kageyama and Hinata aren't a couple (yet ;)), the relationship between them are VERY similar with Risa and Otani. They both have one taller and one shorter person, they fight a lot and isn't exactly 'friends', you can say that they have a friendly rivalry. But both pairs got a very strong relationship which I think is similar enough to recommend.

Both shows are also really good with the high school theme and having a bunch of friends. LoveCom's focus is love while HQ's focus is volleyball, but do not let that stop you from watching one or the other. Both Animes are on my favourite list and I found them similar in my enjoyment and experience while watching both shows.

Enjoy!

In both shows, the main character is a boy who is attempting to save a girl from being used by authoritative government powers against her will.
There is a theme in both shows of the main characters attracting evil forces wherever they go, and there are very similar moments in both shows in this vein.

Working!! and Tanaka-kun are easy-to-watch and funny anime centered on the characters and their interactions. Both are slice-of-life, so naturally don't expect to see some overarching plots or action, but instead the cast's lives and all the ridiculous things they do.

If you like Working!!'s characters, you'll probably like Tanaka-kun's too. Miyano is similar to Popura, and Shiraishi's shy girlyness might remind you of Inami. (no punching from Shiraishi though, sorry.)

Every episode of both anime is enjoyable, even if there's something you don't find funny, it's quickly over and on to something else funny. The jokes in both are brilliant, in my opinion.

Tanaka-kun has less romance than Working!!, but it's hinted, so if you're looking for something to ship you might find it. (and Working!!'s doesn't come until much later)

Either one is a great anime to watch, especially when just relaxing or looking for laughs.

On the other hand, even if that's not your type of thing, they manage to sustain a vibrant world, lovable characters, and exceptionally thrilling moments. However, the thing that stood out to me the most about the two is the fact that they are extremely dialogue heavy animes, and if you can't keep up, you might have trouble comprehending the story or the motives behind each character. All in all, both are great shows and if you've seen one, I believe you'd like the other.
