Must watch for fans one way or the other. There are just so many similarities. No question. Guarantee.

Both are short sentimental stories about young women looking back at their past

both rumiko takahashi anthology and otona joshi no anime time are episodic shows about daily situations that can be a little uncommon but can happen to anyone. rumiko takahashi´s is more light hearted with some comedy and anime time has a really nice animation and it really goes deeper into the characters minds and feelings while rumiko series is more about the situations

Mature, thoughtful stories about adult women living in contemporary Japan. Neither show shies away from realistic depictions of romance, sex, and failed relationships. Both have a strong sense of melancholy interspersed with levity at life's absurdities, and their protagonists make difficult and interesting decisions. Nana is long and lacks a conclusive ending; Anime Time tells four unrelated short stories. In each case it's less about the destination than the journey.

I think these animes are both intended for the same target group. Both show different complex female/male-relationship between adults/ older adults . Otona Joshi no Anime Time is more poetic and focuses on the women while Ristorante Paradiso shows the relationships mostly from the male perspective and has more steady art.

Both have simple but deep stories about the daily lifes of women made by different directors for each episode. "Otona Joshi no Anime Time" has completely different stories whereas "Near Death!! Ekoda-chan" super short episodes are based on the same manga. The artstyles are extremely unusual and more appealing for arty people I guess. They vary from episode to episode. I really think someone who likes one of them could be interested in the other one since they are rare finds of anime about/for grown up and a little bit weird women.

Both series are stories based on actual literature. Though the audience for both are vastly different, they both take on very mature and profound themes about life. I think that anyone who appreciates the rawness of literary stories would enjoy both.

Both involve older Japanese women, often reminiscing on their pasts and their dissatisfactions in life; they often recount specific childhood memories, and trace these memories back to the person they'd become, abandoning the life they thought they should have been living for a new way of life that brings them true happiness. (they also both operate under a romantic slant!)

Both have similar josei themed stories like love triangles.

These are collections of very realistic and reflective stand-alone stories, with each focusing on an adult in modern Japanese society and the things that they deal with. 
report Recommended by Iconoclast
Both are josei/slice of life that share similar themes. Focusing on the lives of 30-something working women making their way in a modern world. The tone is different (though there is some overlapping). Otona is a somber and nostalgic character study of the four different women. Hataraki Man is more 'sex & the city', but in a good way.

Both of them are made in no-anime style. I don't mean graphic (but in Jin-Roh it's more realistic than nice). These works resemble serious movie so much like director didn't find any good actors and decided to make an anime.

There is a notion of looking back at your teenage years in an attempt to fix your present.

It's short, peaceful and warm. Makes you go nostalgic about home and life. You always wish to relive your childhood days. They were the best days!

Mature and realistic slice of life, female point of view. If you enjoyed the slow pace and you are in one of those "look at yourself in the mirror" kind of moods this is exactly what you are looking for. Slightly nostalgic, bittersweet, very enjoyable watch. I really wish there was more like this!
