If you liked
Fairy Tail
...then you might like
Akame ga Kill!
Both include endless fighting for several reasons.
While "Akame ga Kill!" is focused on revenge and justice, as well as hostile and corrupt law enforcement, "Fairy Tail" is focused on family and the evil nature of humans, as well as chaotic and depraved villains.

Both series include magic and magic weapons, and both are comedic at times. While "Fairy Tail" is more lighthearted, "Akame ga Kill" has a dark and malicious plot. Both are dramatic and focused on a similar sort of justice, after the motto: "An eye for an eye".

"Akame ga Kill" has 24 episode and one season. "Fairy Tail" has over 200 episodes and two seasons. "Fairy Tail" is, as of yet, still airing, while "Akame ga Kill" is not.

Mousou Dairinin
...then you might like
Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
Invigorating mysteries that are told episodically to further the main plot. Each contains a heavy dose of black comedy and occasional surrealism, all wrapped up in the work of two of the most skillful anime directors to date. In either case, you won't be disappointed.
If you liked
FLCL
...then you might like
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Both are off the wall, eccentric and creative shows. They consist of insane battles and fun adventure. Although, FLCL is a lot more...difficult to follow. 2 highly enjoyable anime that are very entertaining.
If you liked
Cowboy Bebop
...then you might like
Michiko to Hatchin
Michiko to Hatchin and Cowboy Bebop struck me as very similar series. After all, Watanabe produced Michiko so it's not surprise that he'd take an interest in a series similar to his previous works. Both prove to be very stylish and musical. Cowboy Bebop has jazzy roots whilst Michiko has a more south american influence on the soundtrack. However, Michiko has a very jazzy opening. Both are very episodic but will occasionally have overarching plots that span multiple episodes. Both series are definitely, in my opinion at least, underrated. Bebop should be at 9 while Michiko should be at least 8.5. All in all, fun, adventurous shows that should not be missed.
If you liked
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
...then you might like
Hunter x Hunter (2011)
These two anime are both remakes of an older anime in the series. They stay truer to the Manga and have little to no filler episodes, which for Shonen is a huge feat. They are the undeniable kings of Shonen and prove that even long battle shonen can have amazing stories, characters, development etc. Produced within recent years; both are masterpieces. Must watch for anime fans.
If you liked
Nana
...then you might like
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
Both shows have love and music as their main theme. Shigatsu may seem more of the dramatic type and innocent love, Nana can be a bit darker and tragic. These two are homogeneous in terms of characters having a hit and miss in their love target but anyhow, things just somehow get refreshing and bittersweet

Summer Wars
Aside from the fact that they share the same director, Mamoru Hosoda, these movies share a very similar DNA. In both there is a virus like thing trying to destroy Japan with some sort of missile and our heroes must do everything in their power to stop that from happening. Thankfully, that is where the similarities end (aside from small similarities that you could find between some characters) and both of these wonderful works blossom in their separate ways.

Also both series have their story arc where the show gets darker and complex.

They both deal with similar issues like facing the fact that your rival are always stronger and by turning evil you will be on an even playing field with them but at what cost. Another issue that they both deal with is it’s great to have a worthy opponent in order to push one’s self to greater heights. In addition, they both use fighting as a way to communicate their thoughts and feelings as well as dealing with psychological issues.

Yuri Seijin Naoko-san (2012)
As one can tell each individual title revolves around the daily lives of hyperactive aliens who in fact are undeniably key figures.

If you liked

Buddy Complex
The way in which Docking works within Vividred Operation is very similar to Coupling. Not only do the protagonists gain the knowledge and experience of one another through their trust and reliance but also, an invisible bond is formed between them.
If you liked
Hajime no Ippo
...then you might like
Nodame Cantabile
Okay, this is a wacky recommendation since both are different in target audience and content, but they are very similar overall. Both series have a simple but meaningful story about pursuing goals and overcoming trials featuring very realistic characters with very realistic motivations set in the real world. And if this helps, both are very simplistic and comedic in style with great execution: no overly idealistic deep dialogues, no unnecessary complexities of any sorts, no moe, no fanservice, no edginess or whatever that plagues today's industry. So if you're someone who appreciates anime on a personal level or just wants a refreshing experience, pick up one or both. Just remember that Hajime no Ippo is a shounen boxing anime with lots of action, while Nodame Cantabile is a shoujo/josei anime about classical music with some romance so one's taste might not suit the other.
If you liked
Mawaru Penguindrum
...then you might like
Plastic Memories
Both series starts out clearly defining the premise of the story. For Penguindrum it is fate, and for Plastic Memories it is how knowledge of the time your death would affect your life (and the life of those around you).

...then you might like
Aldnoah.Zero
This show starts off a little more slowly compared to Attack on Titan but as it progresses, the pace of the story starts to kick in and it really reels you in and that's how it is similar to Attack on Titan.

The soundtrack is pretty similar as well - fighting scenes, lots of death and twists and turn - humanity fighting against one another - pretty similar to AoT if you ask me.

Both are fast paced, interesting and keeps you on the edge of your seat!
If you liked
Kyousou Giga (TV)
...then you might like
Kekkai Sensen
Both throw you right into the middle of a fantastical alternative take on a normally realistic setting (Kyoto in Kyousogiga, New York in Kekkai Sensen), and both revolve around large casts of characters in not-quite-but-almost slice of life stories. Neither one is too fond of exposition, preferring to take you right into the middle of things and just let you take in everything that's happening. Both have frantic pacing and great dialogue/character interactions.

Also, they have the same director, and it shows.
If you liked
Gintama

Kekkai Sensen
Both revolve around a normally-realistic setting combined with alien and supernatural elements, and are built around a group of characters who take on non-specific jobs. Neither really has a plot, and both hang more on their huge casts than anything else.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Madoka Magica borrows some imagery from Kannazuki no Miko. Two main characters are very similar in both shows. And so are their dynamics and motivations - much more than it initially looks (especially considering Madoka Magica:Rebellion movie). But telling why exactly would be walking into heavy spoiler territory - plot twists play significant role in both series.

They both revolve around classical music. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso has a more intense drama than Nodame Cantabile, while Nodame Cantabile is more relaxing.

If you liked
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
...then you might like
Steins;Gate
The thriller and the suspense. You will not know what is going to happen at the end of the series until you watch the end of the series. The story and the characters are well developed that will make you think that you are in their world. The difference is that Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood has more action and fighting scenes.
If you liked
Ranma ½
...then you might like
Kyoukai no Rinne (TV)
Kyoukai no Rinne is pratically the second incarnation of Ranma 1/2.
Both are comedy anime, made by the same author and both have basically the same feel.
While Ranma relies on gender bending, people turning into animals and martial arts parodies to make the audicence laugh, Rinne's gags are all about the interaction with ghosts and the main character's financial problems.

Accel World
Firstly, both series are by the same author, so you know that if you like one of an author's works you'll be likely to love their other works

Both series are set in the future, which makes them interesting, and the technology is equally interesting

They are both set in the same universe, although Accel World is set further into the future

Both series have a lot of action, and the game that the main character is in has high stakes as a result of in-game death/ losing all points (Real-life death in SAO, whereas loss of the program forever in Accel World) This creates tension, keeping you hooked

If you liked
Non Non Biyori
...then you might like
Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic
Both are Slice Of Life shows. Both shows depict the everyday lives of cute girls and having fun along the way. The only major difference is that Non Non Biyori is in a countryside setting but Kiniro Mosaic is mostly in school. But that doesn't take away the fun-filled, heart warming and good comedy aspects of both shows

I recommend NNB because it is a good Slice of Life show and is a great way to start yourself in the SoL genre.

If you liked
Kingdom
...then you might like
Arslan Senki (TV)
Both animes focus on wars between nations and the internal struggles within a nation, including traitors who are after power or the throne. In Arslan Senki the main character is the prince (king to be) himself, while in Kingdom the main character is a soldier who is aiming to become a general to the prince (king to be). Either way, both plots focus on making the prince into a King who rightfully belongs on the throne. Although the personalities of the two princes in these animes are rather unique, what makes them similar is their respect for human lives and compassion. They don't just think of their soldiers or citizens as livestock but truly value their lives and their loyalty to the nation.
I also like how both animes go very in depth regarding war strategies and the importance of a clever tactician in turning the tables during war.

As this occurs, the main characters cross paths with a girl from an influential family. Though her means differ from those of the pilots, their ultimate goal is the same - and that is peace.

Gundam Wing is a must watch classic with another great soundtrack.

Shirobako
Shirobako feels much like the K-On series: It's a comedic, light-hearted anime that centers around a group of young female donut-addicts, who upon graduation, vow to one day create an anime together. In a very cute manner, the show documents the girls struggling to keep up with their work, and furthering their careers while attempting to adjust to their new adult lives. One can also appreciate that Shirobako is filled with great references to many iconic shows of the past few decades. (Initial D, Gurren Lagann, just to name a few.)

-While DanMachi has a dungeon Mondaiji have zones, the concept is the same,the further you are in,the harder it gets.
-Have slight ecchi

If you liked
Sabagebu!
...then you might like
Etotama
Both shows have a mostly female cast. The stories are driven by comedy, although Etotama has more of a plot than Sabagebu. Neither anime takes itself very seriously, as most of the events are random, ridiculous, or nonsensical. Both shows also have action: in Sabagebu, airsoft guns are used, whereas Etotama is more of a chibi Super Smash Bros. kind of thing.
If you liked
Sword Art Online

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka
Both anime have RPG elements (for exemple leveling system, items, abilities etc.) although Dungeon ni Daei isn't an RPG. Both anime are playing in a fantasy world. The main character is very kind and gets very strong during the anime. Both anime contain a bit romance.
If you liked
Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
...then you might like
Psycho-Pass
Both of these animes are set in a Japan different than the one that exists today, and both heavily involve characters who are investigators, Psycho-Pass more so than Darker Than Black. The fast paced crime solving and back and forth between the "good" guys and "bad" guys (quotes because the audience is eventually led through a deconstructive lens) are factors of both of these shows that remind me of (and are just as good as) Deathnote. If you find that your heart misses the characters the most, you'll be able to find similar characters in Psycho-Pass and Darker than Black.

If you liked
Black Lagoon
...then you might like
Jormungand
The atmosphere and themes of these 2 shows are very similar. If you are looking for an anime to fill the void left behind after binge watching Jormungand, Black Lagoon is your answer.

For me, the most enjoyable aspect of Jormungand is its action. A bunch of highly competent mercenaries executing their missions by way of their sheer combat ability. In Black Lagoon you will find similar action, but I feel Jormungand has the better combat scenes because it is more tactical and show cases a greater variety of combat roles. Another plus point for Black Lagoon is that if you liked the competent, badass female characters in Jormungand, there is no shortage of them in Black Lagoon.

Overall, both shows deal with the issues of "war" and combat; what it is like to live a life of strife, what life is like for those who kill for a living and the cross they all have to bear as a consequence. In short, they are both dark, cynical shows dealing with the violence in human societies.

Finally, if you are a person who values closure; note that unlike Jormungand, Black Lagoon is not a completed story. Still, I highly recommend you give Black Lagoon a shot if you love Jormungand's action and characters

Dios from Utena reminds me a lot of the Man from Angel's Egg, they are both very mysterious and I am not sure if I love or hate them.

1. Both revolve around people with powers living among ordinary people
2. The ordinary people end up hating on those with power
3. A crazy politically involved b*tch who leads a protest against those with powers only to have their own sons end up with powers
4. Both have almost the same feel
5. Great animated fights

Hibike! Euphonium
The only real similarity these shows have is the main characters. They share a lot of similar traits and are subjected to similar stereotypes, moe. Character development is more prominent in Hibike Euphonium, but Kantai Collection still gives you the same feeling from the main characters.

Punch Line
They both have similar plot devices in the use of a non-human mentor to the main character as well as a saving the world plotline. As well as this, both shows are different to what they seem at first glance.
There are also a couple of other similarities but to share them would be huge spoilers.

Ninja Slayer From Animation
Both anime feature a protagonist who seeks to destroy a group of "monsters" (in Ninja Slayer's case not literal monsters, rather figuratively) after they killed the protagonist's loved ones.

Both anime feature exhilarating action sequences and neither show is afraid of killing characters - often in very brutal manners. Both shows evoke similar feelings from the viewer, and Ninja Slayer is simply a must-watch for any fan of Attack on Titan!

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai.
Main Characters: Both main Charakters are perverted and love girls, panty shots and breasts.
Story line: Both characters help their female demonic master with their power of pervert. Both anime have a lot of Harem and show nudes often.

Difference: The demonic girl master in Dakara boku wa, H ga Dekinai doesn't have big breasts like in Highschool DxD, although other characters in the anime do have big Breasts. DxD´s Rias Gremory is very soft but Lisara Restall is very harsh and doenst like Ryosuke Kaga as person.

Own opinion: I personally enjoyed both anime eventhough I would prefer DxD over Dakara. If you don't like 'hardcore' ecchi you should give Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai a try because its not as extreme as DxD. If you enjoyed Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai you should definitely give DxD a try. I would see Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai as an prestage to DxD.
I hope i could help you finding an new anime!
Have fun with them!
