Kyoukasho ni Nai!
Both feature teacher-student relationships especially with problem students. The difference being GTO is a strong teacher and focused on delinquents and getting along generally with students. Kyoukasho ni Nai (Very Private Lesson) is more about a wimpy teacher being played by a problem student who happens to be a Yakuza boss' daughter. KNN is more ecchi, but only two OVA episodes were made despite 18 volumes in the manga.

Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji
Blue Spring Ride is a fantastic shoujo series done well even with the commonly seen tropes. It deals how misunderstandings and not being honest with yourself and others can heavily effect relationships you have with your friends and love ones. The main female lead at the start takes on a persona that is not true to herself and it causes her problems along the journey but from the help of her true friends and the person she loves, she is able to come to terms with being her true self and to express her feelings. This goes for the same for the main female lead in Wolf Girl and Black Prince.

The male lead in Blue Spring Ride is rather calm, cool and collected and is the complete opposite of the Male lead in, Wolf Girl and Black Prince who is a sadist but what they both have in common is they also are not being completely honest with themselves and with their loves ones. Wolf Girl and Black Prince tends to lean on a more less lighter tone and the comedy side of things, as the series goes on, the main characters together break down these walls.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Imagine having a supernatural ability that has the potential to change the world. This power falls into the palms of both the main characters in these two series and both characters share similar traits and personalities. Both are highly intelligent and both question the system of justice and what's morally right and wrong. Though, the consequences only continue to pile up the more they use this power along with their definition on what is good and evil. As both characters look to destroy the "evil" and rebuild the world under their rule, what has made these series popular are the strategic battles similar to Chess in a Cat-and-Mouse format with twists that keep you on your toes along with provoking the viewer into thinking about the concepts of Justice and the morals of the world. Does a good job in having the viewer on the line between supporting the main characters and rooting for the group of people to stop them.

Both animes have a human personification of the seven deadly sins however, in fma:b they are the main antagonists whereas in NnT they are the heros of the story. Both are awesome portrayals of each sin as well as epic adventure stories.

Sakasama no Patema
It has similar art to the older Studio Ghibli works tho it lacks in certain elements such as the BGM. Nevertheless, fans of Studio Ghibli's work should definitely try this one out.

Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta
...then you might like
Noragami
These shows are really similar. Both have this setup between Humans and Gods/Youkai that are trying to coexist with each other and live in peace. Both of them also have this "Group" that are in-charge of Taking Care or Exterminating the Demons/Spirits etc. They also have this Main Character who are somehow different than the rest. In Yozakura it's Hime, while in Noragami it's Hiyori. And they both have this "Guardian" who takes care of their Supernatural Problems. Both are also Shounen and Have a big dousage of Comedy, along with a really amazing OST. So i really Recommend both if you like this kind of Anime :).
If you liked
FLCL
...then you might like
Kill la Kill
Wild animation, bizarre plotlines, cool characters, and sweet soundtracks.

If you liked the oddity of FLCL, Kill la Kill delivers its fair share of strangeness, though in a much more direct format. Its humor has a lot of basis in cartoonish antics, fan service gags, and puns (so many puns). While definitely not sharing the surrealism of FLCL, it has a lot of the same attitude, and can be an enjoyable romp.

Notably, the two series share some production team members, including Hiroyuki Imaishi.
If you liked
Nichijou
...then you might like
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
Both are adaptations of gag 4koma manga. Nichijou had a lot of wild, unpredictable humor, and I feel Nozaki-kun does the same thing but with a focus on shoujo manga tropes. If you're an artist and liked the Nichijou episode about working on manga, this series has a lot of art-related jokes that will have you bursting with laughter. Both shows have really enjoyable, funny characters with interesting quirks!

Kaiba
Very similar and unconventional art style. Both series heavily conceal important information from the viewer as a technique to give a feeling of uncertainty throughout the series. Both have an episodic format, although Kaiba abandons this after the first half of the series. Finally each of these anime is very good, very deep, and surprisingly touching.
If you liked
Hidan no Aria
...then you might like
Grisaia no Kajitsu
Grisaia no Kajitsu's main male lead is simply Hidan no Aria's lead with his assassin mode left on. These Anime's also both contain a lot of the same features:
- A strong male Lead.
- A main love interest (With other party's trying to get involved.)
- In depth Character development.
- An action packed story.
- A out of the ordinary school setting.
There are some differences for instance:
- Grisaia no Kajitsu is classed as an Harem (Hidan no Aria is not but does contain many features of a harem.)
- Hidan no Aria contains humans with supernatural powers.
If you liked
Neon Genesis Evangelion
...then you might like
Fushigi no Umi no Nadia
Evangelion and Nadia share the same director (Anno), character designer (Sadamoto) AND animation studio (Gainax). Nadia's character was very much a prototype for Asuka: the character that made tsunderes both common and popular. Watching Nadia be naturally bitchy towards Jean and give him a hard time over very little instantly made me remember Asuka's "Anta Baka?" self. Both Shinji in Eva and Jean in Nadia are easily dominated by strong-willed female love interests (often in comical fashion), so the similarities between their relationships are obvious. I STRONGLY recommend Nadia to ANYONE interested in a slightly more down-to-earth, less otaku friendly Asuka.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin
Sakuragi in Rainbow IS Kamina from TTGL... just without the GAR glasses and vibrant anime colours. If Kamina had been in a grimdark 1950's macho cheese prison drama, Rainbow would be it, for sure. The inspirational manliness is off the charts as these two seemingly invincible alpha male characters make their lessor male counterparts into better men/slightly homosexual. Simon's development in TTGL and Team Aniki (especially Mario) in Rainbow is practically the same; timeskip and all. Broship sacrifice leads to becoming a clone of Bro.
