Almost the same type of humor 
report Recommended by netsvetaev
Flip Flappers and Junrui share a common setting being placed in the future/alternate reality of current society. Each shows gives you a whimsical almost Alice in Wonderland feeling, they share similar main characters that are equally quirky and colorful. The story telling is also very similar and comical in each show and the setting is very immersive and draws you in asking more questions than seem to get answered.

These Anime take the world and twist the reality. What could possibly be a normally a happy go lucky story line has dark twists to it.

Both are subversive comedies that frequently make you go WTF as you watch.

I actually watched Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita a few months ago, but when I finished Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou I felt like it gave off kind of the same feeling. You know, when everyone look happy and take life as it comes there's this omnipresent melancholic feeling that never really disappears. The characters are the last people on earth, they know it, but they still manage to overcome this feeling and live their life with a sincere smile, and I find it both really sad and heartwarming. Oh, and the op and ed of both shows are absolute dope by the way.

Both of these Anime have very different story lines, but they have a similar art style and they take their genre and do something different with it. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
They are both satire comedies where a witty and cynical female MC tries to deal with a messed-up world. 
report Recommended by noop_noob
In both, mankind numbers dwindle to very low. Atmosphere seems similar too 
report Recommended by hexaq
Both deal with human nature and doubts in metaphorical way. 
report Recommended by OVanBruce
Non-chronological broadcast order as a framing device with a snarky protagonist that falls victim to funny supernatural hijinks. 
report Recommended by NeoRinTinTin
The main characters in both shows are witty and sarcastic and have unique communications with tiny, cute creatures. A similar dark humor is frequently used in the two series that appeals to a more mature audience. Both shows also have clear morals about society. 
report Recommended by Katsura_da
Both shows are comedies with a colorful and vibrant art style that's contrasted by their cynical protagonists. 
report Recommended by NeoRinTinTin
Both shows are about the future of the world and the different races that interact with humans. Shinseki yori is darker, but they both are about with dealing with a new intellectual race. Also, while both are set in the future, neither have high technology and actually have even reverted back a bit. Both are pretty imaginative and I highly recommend them both to anyone looking for something new and refreshing.

While these two anime couldn't be more dissimilar in terms of art style, tone, and pacing, they do both explore the theme of humanity's decline as a species. Texhnolyze is a dark, slow paced, and extremely moody series that handles the subject matter in a very serious fashion. Jinrui wai Suitai Shimashita, on the other hand, is infinitely more humorous and colorful, though dark undertones are still present throughout. I would recommended both of these series to anyone who is interested in seeing a similar theme handled in two completely different ways. 
report Recommended by JayBirdSupreme
Both are post-apocalyptic fantasies revolving around a protagonist who holds a title that entails interacting with fairies. Fairies play a important role in both stories. While one is more comical, the other is more tragic. Both protagonists take their job seriously considering few have held the position. 
report Recommended by Reload
Both are very surreal in their setting and presentation. They feel much the same in terms of mood and atmosphere, although Jinrui is primarily a satirical comedy while Kino's Journey is more about the slice of life aspect. If you like witty humor and want to become lost in a strange world, both of these are a great pick. 
report Recommended by Veronin
Both shows happily take potshots at the industry, fans, and really anyone they feel like. Jinrui is more satirical, while Ange favors more straightforward parody. I think both can be very funny for viewers with the right sense of humor.  
report Recommended by colonelpanic
Very similar humor (usually of the "everything sucks" variety), similar protagonists, similar setting of a future in which the human population is smaller than it is now 
report Recommended by colonelpanic
In both animes humanity is in a deplorable state and people are trying to find a way to lower the starvation rate by inventing new and efficient ways of growing crops/making food. 
report Recommended by Aichiro
Events are not in chronological order and mankind gets wiped out. Both have time travel, puns, dark humor, and the plot is a huge mind screw. 
report Recommended by Jorjz
Both have really vivid colors and a seemingly light and cheery atmosphere with very dark and twisted undertones.  
report Recommended by olboyfloats
Both follow follow a female lead in her upper teens with non-human friends in an off-beat comedy, almost slice of life, josei story set in the future where there is a vague sense of dread underneath it's sugary sweetness.  
report Recommended by Vesey
Are the two best animes that make you think deeply about life without losing the tone of humor and irony. 
report Recommended by Squalidx
Romeo Tanaka wrote the novels that both Jintai and AURA adapt. The similar writing style shows throughout both series, but AURA is grounded in reality and heavy-handed seriousness (with some great, realistic drama throughout), while Jintai is a far more surreal and playfully cynical work, with a hint of optimism and idealism thrown in there (but it can do drama just as well as AURA when it wants to). Despite their disparate perspectives, the characters are characterised and developed in similar ways. AURA is reminiscent of Jintai, without all of the surreal and more unorthodox elements. AURA is the later work, so it is easier  read more

They both have the "all-over-the-place" feel, so they both will require viewers to watch them several times before making sense of anything. They are also random, but in a good way, They both have eye-popping visuals, just in different styles. 
report Recommended by pakoko
While the core of the shows is different, they have female leads with very similar personalities. Kumiko and Watashi are practically the same person. And they're both adorable shows.  
report Recommended by Doaj
While not similar in content, both are close to episodic mystery like anime following a nameless protagonist who help people out. They both use unique art styles and are incredibly interesting and satisfying to watch.  
report Recommended by ZachM
Joshiraku and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita are highly meta in nature. Each take jabs at issues ranging from daily life to global politics. Breaking the fourth wall in both titles seem to be the case rather than the exception. Cuteness of the girls is ever present in Joshiraku and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. 
report Recommended by Hakase-dono
Both have unique characters and a storyline that seems to go all over the place. They each have their fantasy aspects and the art looks very similar.  
report Recommended by Avey1P
Both have same characteristic joke. Like non-sense event that makes you say WTF. Well even though Jinrui wa has a plot with some event and Osomatsu has random plot, both have similiar twist in their ending 
report Recommended by molk2
Both anime talk about the eventual decline of humanity and what people have do to survive after the destruction of the planet (Earth or otherwise). Also, both are somewhat carefree at times. Really good characters too! I enjoyed both series a lot! 
report Recommended by AoiPlatinum
Kumiko and Watashi are very similar heroines, by their personality, their facial expressions/funny faces. They also tend to help others. Besides they are the narrators of their series.(Kumiko for Euphonium and Watashi for Jinrui) Despite their colorful appearance, both series incorporate serious themes in their plot. 
report Recommended by TuyNOM
both jump around in the storyline of their respective series, both have the main character narrate their thoughts in each episode. both are really entertaining and have serious elements, but mostly they are just entertaining comedy. A similarity would be the supernatural elements, but there isnt really anything similar plotwise 
report Recommended by DarknessSerpent
Humanity is dwindling and is in desperate need of resources in order to survive in both series. The setting is very similar and and both hold secrets and mysterious places. They both have girls with pink hair and green eyes as the main protagonists who are employed in a position that plays a vital role to the functioning of their town.  
report Recommended by retii
The character design is similar to that of Air's. Watashi looks like she can be Misuzu's cousin. 
report Recommended by pinkarray
These shows both seem to incorporate many different genres in each arc including totally random stuff which you will probably never make sense of. Excel Saga occurs mostly in an urban setting and has a larger cast while Jinrui is more of a quite countryside kind of show. 
report Recommended by lnn8v6
Ever wanted to watch an entire series about happening inside Sana's Wonderland? I recommend that you watch Humanity Has Declined, which centres around a girl interacting with fairies-like whose powers create all sorts of craziness for her. Humanity Has Declined can be categorized as absurdist fiction so it's not for everyone. For those coming from Humanity Has Declined, Alice & Zouroku is a more standard anime. Zouroku would be a much more effective mediator than Watashi, but he only needs to handle Sana who has fairies-like powers.

Beautifully detailed fantasy worlds that defy science in some manner. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
Both series have a creepy twist on something that is supposed to have fairy tale endings. In other words, it takes the normal fairy tale and takes it back to the time of Grimm rather then the Disney fairy tale many of us know. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
The one Anime is like a dark version of Kobato. The main character has a rather mild personality, similar hair color and works with the fantastical elements. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
The stories about two "story tellers" who record the adventures of their lives in the stories they tell. One is more fantastical while another is more realistic. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
Fairy like creatures, worlds apart and dealing with problems. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
The magical creatures act upon whims in both Anime. There is also a lot of humor which results from the uncanny way the characters interact with each other. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
*both deal with fairies and the comunication between them and the humans *different genres, but beautiful art *the main heroine in Hakushaku to Yousei resembles the one in Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita 
report Recommended by -Alice-
Mixing surreal settings with quirky comedy Jinrui and Zvezda attain a mystical atmosphere. Strong female leads help keep these otherwise nonsensical shows afloat. 
report Recommended by Detective
Surrealistic slice of life about the decline of the mankind. Bittersweet, warm-hearted and a little bit philosophical. 
report Recommended by Day-Elven
They are both extremely unusual. They make you wonder what the original creators could possibly have been thinking when they made these shows. Both Jinrui and Fractale are centered on the role of humanity in a distant future where the lives that we know today have all but disappeared. The stories are very different but the art is similar and both have great music. Also, awesome voice actors.

Similar setting where humanity is about to extinct. Human extinction. 
report Recommended by Terrible
The main protagonist in both series is employed by a government agency as a liaison between humans and magical beings. 
report Recommended by SpookyWasabi
Bread Science, Black Humor, Political satire and Time travel put in a comedic medium. 
report Recommended by Azraniel
Both series have more or less have the same content that exploits human natures tendency to collapse due to corruption, misinformation, immaturity, ignorance & forced societal complementary.Self monologues are the highlight of both series though that would be obvious since the characters have introvert sides, also had a slow start due to foreshadowing, it also had four seasons without winter. Only difference is that SNAFU is more straightforward and doesn't like to present things in a metaphorical analogies unlike JWSS does most of the time, it inputs real somewhat humane characters instead. 
report Recommended by Azraniel
They both have a similar feeling and especially the seinen element. 
report Recommended by Dolan
both are dark comedies with distant and disapproving main character. over all mood goes from comedy to drama in brutal pace. both are not the most pleasant to watch. 
report Recommended by gknight
The two series deal with how mankind deals with 'new' humans. Food shortages, struggle for survival and despair are overarching themes. Where as Titan tells a gritty shounen tale, Jintai presents a cheerful face that may appear childish but belies a very adult level of cynicism. There are strong parallels to be drawn between the two when homo sapiens no longer become the predominant species. 
report Recommended by Lanf
Very similar art styles, both seem targeted at a younger audience, are light-hearted but have surprisingly serious elements to their setting. 
report Recommended by noirgrimoir
Both anime are short episodic-ish series that involve a main character who is often dragged into wacky adventures. Both series can be enjoyed from a pure comedic standpoint or can be seen through a more intellectual lens. For Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, this takes form as a critique on human society and behavior whilst for Space Dandy, this is shown as life lessons that the characters go through on their adventures. I recommend enjoying a bit of both and letting the anime take you on an adventure without having to think too hard. Both of these anime are rather quirky and fall into the hit-or-miss category,  read more
