Well, both are feels anime that aired at consecutive airing season about up-and-down emotional relationship between a boy and a girl. If you like feels anime, you'll maybe like Shigatsu, though it contains more drama compared with Plastic Memories which contains more comedy. Though the main premise is very different, in the end, both of them has a few similarities.

add
Both Gainax mecha shows are similar in the sense that they are not similar,let me explain.You see Gurren Lagann is the Cruel Angel's ANTIthesis, it 'undoes' NGE. While NGE is a "subversion" of it's genre and about people who are reluctant, introverted, anxiously, held back by their angst and their inability to live up to their own and everyone else's expectations and mostly fail to actualize themselves, TTGL feels more like a parody of it's genre(not to say it's bad,quite the contrary) and about characters that stare down their anxiety, put their fear behind them, rise up to challenge the stars, and overcome everyone's expectations to pierce the heavens with the power of awesome.

They both have the medieval action/adventure feel to them, both have great fight scenes, and both make you laugh.

Fairy Tail has more character development -- probably because it's longer -- and the fight scenes are longer.

Dungeon ni Deai has a better story -- in my opinion -- and the fight scenes get you interested even though they are shorter.

Why is this not a recommend yet, no idea but here.
Both are works of the Great Tomino, and both are very light hearted really. The atmosphere of both are similar and both have this sort of goofy nature with the MCs. Also the mecha designs are similar as well, the character design is also the same.

I would say if you're looking for more of "Happy Tomnino" then try these out. Overman King Gainer has a hardly any body count, but G-Reco does a little, and really G-Reco is a bit more darker then Overman King Gainer. Try them out, you won't be disappointed.

There's also some romance going on with the main boy and girl in each of these series. The last surviving person in Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works gets a wish from the Holy Grail and the last surviving person in Mirai Nikki or The Future Diary become the new God of Time and Space. But that's not always the case since both of these survival elements are altered in the end of each of these series.

Arakawa under the Bridge is a great Anime to have a fun time with, its setting is pretty simple, but it has very lovable and crazy characters that make every episode a fun ride.

What is this show all about?

In short, it's just about a guy who never wants to be indebted to anyone and because he got saved by a girl, he now promises her to live with her under a bridge.
This sounds crazy? It is indeed and you may already guess, that any people living under a bridge might have a few screws loose...

If you have enjoyed an Anime like Gintama, which is famous for its obscur humour, you might as well like this Anime - Btw there's also one character with the same voice actors as Gintoki's in here :)

Still, I think people who enjoy all the crazy, random, stupid crap the anime industry comes up with will like both series.

Both of the series uses almost exactly the same voice actors which just adds to the similar feeling. At the start of Daily Lives Of Highschool Boys i started to believe it was just a parody of Gintama. These two anime's are by far the most similar anime's i've ever watched.

Accel World is also an game-based anime where instead of swords, you have this cool armor and unique powers.

I personally find the plot for both SAO and Accel World well done, both graphics to be equally pretty, the battles within the show epic (except Kirito is overpowered) and yes their opening and ending song are one of the reason that i binge through both series.

Both present non-recurring secondary characters and a deadpan male protagonist. In addition, the two provide some existential thought for its themes and are basically one-trick ponies.

Kotoura-san
add
Kotoura and Tsukimi (from Kuragehime) feel alienated from society. Kotoura has trouble trusting others due to her psychic ability and Tsukimi feels intimated by 'stylish' people. Both of the girls are helped by quirky male characters. Manabe helps Kotoura and Kuranosuke helps Tsukimi in ways that lead to funny and sometimes sad momemts.

Manabe abuses the fact Kotoura can read minds and purposely thinks of dirty thoughts while Kuranosuke gives Tsukimi make-overs and pushes her into society as being a fashionable girl. There's light romance throughout each series but the main theme for both remains the female lead tries to break out of her shell.

Each duo is supported by a colourful cast with their own intentions and gimmicks that add humour to the show.

The setting and the overall feeling of these shows are very different, but those two anime have a lot in common. Both series have intelligent main protagonists who are sick of society, and suddenly they find a super power that they use in order to change the world for their own reasons. Both of them are ruthless sometimes, but they are the best examples of anti-heroes, who are genious and think about plans that will blow your mind. Also, both anime have a political feeling and they are full of strategies and plot twists.

I make this recommedation only for Episode 6 from Golden Boys "Animation is Fun!" which tell story about kintaro working as production assistant in animation studio (just like aoi from shirobako)

This actually "hidden gems" since Golden Boys infamous as ecchi anime

If you don't like ecchi content but want to know how animation studio working to make anime, You can skip first 5 episode and just watch episode 6
Because Golden Boy is 6 episodic OVA with 6 different storys which each episode has a different story and don't have any connection between in.

A DAILY LIVE OF COLLEGE STUDENT

Romcom anime with college student as MC. Yes, if you look at main story there are big different theme in both anime :
- Aa! Megami-sama! focus on Goddess-Human relantionshp
- Golden time is normal romance anime

But if you look from different perspective, GT & AMS share many similarity

Similar Character :
Female MC (Kouko & Belldandy) really love the male MC (Banri & Keiichi)
They’re doing everything to make male MC happy, even if it means sacrifice their feelings
Same for Male MC, even they look useless, both have high confidence when it comes to Female MC problems.

Similar story :
Focus story on how they balance their daily live as college student and normal couple with problems come one by one to test how strong their love for each other.

Sick of watching hentai full of blackmail, rape, and scenes that leave you feeling violated as you sob silently in a corner? Then these OVA's are for you. Both are based on hentai games and both are light hearted and comedic harems.

Most scenes are vanilla and the characters each have different personalities (loli, tsundere, etc.). There are scenes where two or more girls will declare their love to the male MC, followed by a threesome in order to determine the 'winner'. The VA in both OVA's are amazing and really capture the characters personality. Both get straight into it and waste little time explaining unnecessary details or settings. Both have pretty good BGM.

Nisekoi and To Love-Ru are popular harem/ecchi Jump manga with successful first seasons. If you like one, you'll like the other. Both second seasons, though, are shorter, more comedy-centric and feel like a drop in quality compared to their respective first seasons. I'd still recommend both if you enjoy harems, ecchi and all that, though.

Both disguise themselves as strictly light-hearted, slice-of-life shows where barely anything interesting happens. Eventually turns out that there's more to them than what we can see on the surface (aka first few of episodes).

Both of these series' main arc/conflict kick in midway through which are consisted of dramatic events. Still, keep in mind that both of them are Slice of Life shows down to the core.

The difference is that Nagato Yuki-chan is a spin-off from a main series and Inou-Battle is an original series. Prior knowledge is required for the former but isn't expected to be similar to the main series.
