Higashi no Eden
Mind games between clever characters, with an interesting storyline that keeps the viewer guessing what is going to happen.

Natsume Yuujinchou is about the daily life of a boy named Takashi that inherits the ability to see & speak to yokai from his grandmother whereas Nekogami Yaoyorozu revolves around the daily life of a Cat God named Mayu that was expelled from her home & forced to live on earth. Both series give a calm yet not so boring vibe that makes you yearn for more. Another similarity that both series have are the heartwarming friendships the MC's gain throughout the series. Also note that Nekogami Yaoyorozu is more comedy oriented.

The animation and artistic style of this reminds me of Madoka Magica. They also both have a dark plot and both have a girl as the main character. They both play on the idea of the innocent being vulnerable to corruption and of evil being disguised as innocent.
If you liked
Death Note
...then you might like
Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor
Assuming you're not completely new to the industry or that you are not turned off by different art styles than these can very well feed your hunger for intense suspense anime which, for me, are hard to come by.
They are both examples of mind games done right (for the most part at least...) with thought provoking and addicting narrative.

Death note has its mystery and suspense coming from planned out strategies from both our protagonist and its rival with results taking sometime to show which makes you want to see how the conflict will progress and who will outsmart the other. A game of morals and intelligence between 2 characters.
Kaiji focuses almost exclusively on, well, Kaiji and how he manages to elaborate a way out of the most hopeless situations. The pressure and danger is more evident in this series with its numerous psychological setups usually forcing Kaiji to think outside the box and fight its own fear and despair. It feels more human and lacks the supernatural aspect Death Note has.

Death note makes use of Light's thoughts to help both the suspense and the understanding of certain scenes while Kaiji relies on a narrator for pretty much the same purpose. Being death note more about Light's strategies against its rival and because Kaiji feels like you're watching (or participating on) a collection of deathly games both were very fitting for the role they played.

If you liked
Monster
...then you might like
Shinsekai yori
A very fair recommendation to make if you've seen one of them.

Differences: Different settings and animation styles. Shinsekai yori has a supernatural aspect which lacks completely in Monster. The former is also more focused on a particular set of characters and their utopian society while the latter is more of a detective series and the journey of our protagonist as he unravels the mystery.

Similarities: They share mature and solid stories with thought provoking themes engulfed in a very mysterious and remarkable atmosphere. They raise the question of "who are the monsters" and leave some aspects with questionable morality for the viewer to interpret. I also think they are very story driven which leaves some characters less developed than one might've wished for.

For the most part they are both well paced (althought Monster could have probably been shorten) and definitely must sees for any self acclaimed fan of good storytelling.
If you liked
Zipang
...then you might like
Full Metal Panic!
Both contain heavy references to military warfare, and contain an important military theme throughout the shows. Both also contain naval heavy plots, however Full Metal Panic also contains more slice of life, as opposed to Zipang's more thought provoking and interesting plot.

Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo
The main characters life in a world that seems to be an utopia, filled with magic and without any strife. However slowly they discover the dark secrets of their world, which actually is filled with discrimination against those without magic.

Both anime start slow but get really good later on. Cross Ange has mecha and fanservice (actually the main reason why I started watching this); Shinsekai Yori has shounen-ai; but both anime have much to make up for that.
If you liked

These shows will show you the weird, creepy side of otaku... the part that make otaku what they are. (Obviously awesome!?) This is the stuff that makes normies cringe and who doesn't love that.

Even if you're just interested in otaku culture, these are good shows to watch. They're funny, you laugh at the characters and maybe even relate to them as well depending on your scale of otaku.

A note for Genshiken, it starts of focusing on the stereotypical male otaku but later seasons bring all kinds of otaku... yaoi fan girls(fujoushi) and cosplay otaku and so forth.

Both also have good soundtracks, but Hellsing has a much better soundtrack when directly compared.

Both of them are also poor adaptations of their original source material.
If you liked
Log Horizon
...then you might like
Hitsugi no Chaika
The two are actually more similar than one might expected. Both have a light and sometime occasionally humorous feeling of adventure. They are both what I would like to call the No Kills anime, in which all the main character or the friendly people associated with the protagonists never dies, and only the bad guys are crossed off the list. Both are on an adventure to discover the truth of something, and both include hints of romance. There are also different groups competing with each other, and the world is also magical with professions such as magicians and such.

Guilty Crown
Both anime revolve around a main character receiving "the power of the king" from a female character. Both involving the main character getting himself in a Japanese rebellion against foreigners discriminating against the Japanese with mechs. Although these shows are both very similar Guilty Crown in my opinion standed out far more then Code Geass did, Guilty Crown i thought was "outlined" if i could describe it but all in all both we're great now its your turn to decide which is "Greater".

Log Horizon
These shows share almost identical plots. They're both about a large group of MMO players getting trapped inside of the game. Both shows go into the various social structures built by an MMOs player base and they discuss the different play styles that individuals adapt.
SAO is a bit different because it takes place in the future and the game was already virtual reality when the players gets stuck whereas in Log Horizon the players were playing on their PCs before being transported to the game world. Other than that one difference the shows share a similar style of storytelling as the players try to make sense of their situation all while fighting against the game world.

I'm amazed that no one has made this recommendation before, both shows are about a young girl who chases after a single goal with passion and conviction. They take place over a period of many years, displaying the high points and low points on the road to success, and are very inspiring to watch.

According to Animeadvice.com MAL users who liked Kemono no Souja Erin were very likely to enjoy Glass no Kamen so even though they seem really different they both capture the same feelings and if you enjoyed one I definitely think you will enjoy the other!

Youjuu Toshi
...then you might like
Isuca
Youjuu Toshi (aka Wicked City) is a classic horror hentai about shapechanging monsters from another dimension and the people who hunt them. Isuca, similarly, revolves around a family of specter hunters and the mysterious mc who wanders into the hunt. Specters drain life force and give intense pleasure in return. The specters in Isuca look like they were inspired by Youjuu Toshi's creature artwork.

However, Isuca is ecchi not hentai so it isn't as graphic sexually, and doesn't have the prolonged monster rape scenes of Youjuu Toshi. Still, it is a nice bit of erotic horror.

Both have their own appeal as well, the story of both is quite touching and the music adds to the uniqueness of both.
If you liked
Baccano!

Durarara!!
Same author Narita Ryohgo, same studio. Both animes focus on various characters from the underworld -- criminals,local violent gangs and social misfits -- with splashes of the occult and the supernatural thrown in but set in a thoroughly (relatively)modern society not unlike ours. While Baccano! had immortals and mysterious elixirs propelling the story forward, Durarara! has a Dullahan, which according to Irish myths, is a headless rider,an unseelie fairy. Like Baccano!, Durarara! is not your conventional anime and is told by an all-seeing narrator, populated by a VERY large cast with actual character development(how shocking right..:P), and initially seems very scattered and loose in terms of its story line but should begin to make sense the more episodes you see.Both are very engaging and are fun to watch.

Hyouka
Talking about all four of the natsume seasons as a whole. Very very similar feelings, in a good way, in which almost every episode is the beginning of a new issue, with some issues extending on to later episodes and so on. Natsume in contrast focuses more on friendship than hyouka, and includes romance, but not directed toward the main character. Both main male characters undergo significant maturation and mental changes, and both anime leave you with an oddly satisfied and happy feeling after each issue is concluded.

Tears, tears, tears, and more tears.

Both have ethereal and bittersweet romance,

Not for people who want happy ever afters, although tragedies can also be beautiful in their own ways.

You'll probably like either the two if you're a big fan of analyzing and figuring out tons of symbolism.
On the surface, both seem like random and really weird anime without any substance.

The characters in kodocha act like Clones of Mikan and Nastume "Sana" Is like Mikan in the way she is kinda an "Air head" and she is goofy.

Akatsuki no Yona
Medieval eastern culture, the athmosphere, red haired heroine, fantasy.
When I started watching Akatsuki no Yona - I was hoping for the new Juuni Kokuki. Yona has more jokes, but still stays serious and characters are incredible. It's ongoing right now (19|24) and I'm not dissapointed and enjoy it to no end.

Kara no Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei
Action! Blades! Breathtaking animation! Both of these anime are well renowned for having beautiful animation and OST with amazing fighting scenes. The only major difference is that Kara no Kyoukai is more story driven with a supernatural feel, while Sword of the Stranger is far more realistic.

Shinmai Maou no Testament
At first, the premise of these shows might be a bit hard to swallow: hot demon chick meets boy, boy staves off evil, rescues the girl, and somehow collects a harem of girls in his abode in the process. The female leads of DxD and Shinmai Maou are in need of great support due to various circumstances, but Issei and Basara are able to take on these massive undertakings and come through for Rias and Mio.

DxD and Shinmai Maou have a lot to offer once you strip off their outer layers. What is it like watching DxD and Shinmai Maou? At first, the shameless gratuitousness of the violence and perversion of these shows might hurt a little, but once they get moving you'll start to feel all right, maybe even enjoy it somewhat. However, even if this is your first time, if you are steaming for some hot demon-on-human action, you're in for a HELL of a ride...literally!

In short, these shows want to make you think long and hard about why you watch anime: do you watch them for their plots, or do you watch them for their naked jiggling boobies? I know MY answer, do you know yours?

Shiki

Tokyo Ravens
the art is VERY similar, I just started watching Tokyo Ravens and I couldn't help but remember Shiki, also because of the small countryside feel in the begining, and then both deal with the supernatural, there are also similarities between some of the female characters... but Shiki is gory and scary while tokyo ravens is not.

Mobile Police Patlabor: The Movie
When I started watching Patlabor the movie, I didn't know it was produced in 1989, so I thought Patlabor plagiarized Evangelion too much. Now that I know it's just the opposite, the value of this work by Mamoru Oshi only gets higher. Patlabor is the predecessor and the main inspiration of Evangelion. It posesses great value for those interested in history, both of Japan, of Anime, of society.
