Cute little girls being coached (or helped) by a high school guy. Moe overdose warning. If you liked the lolis of one of these animes you will also like the lolis of the other anime.

Girls taking recreational activities in a school setting. Sparkling shining exciting fun enjoyable moment fun of fun girl fun life. Incite pedophilia, increase heart rate and make you go all Humbert Humbert. Apply to only men and lesbians. Mood, tone, cast, genre, formula, target, how god classify this show are all overly similar. True, the degree of pedoness, funniness, ecchiness and any-ness may vary, but iPhone 1,2,3,4,5,6 or Nokia 1280 all can make a phone call.

Moe girls doing cute things. Both of these series focuses the will to become an official group that people are willing to recognize in the realm of sports and music. There are some hints of romance in Ro-Kyu-Bu! but both series have comedy and drama.

Both ara anime about a group of girls enjoing sport activity. While Yama no Suzume is about mountain climbing and is more slice of life, Ro-Kyu-Bu is about basketball and is more ecchi.

If you like a "lolified" art which almost all character design in this series is cute or loli, you may give it a try. The differences is Ro-Kyu-Bu about basketball, Lance is about knighthood

Both ara anime about a group of girls enjoing sport activity. While Yama no Suzume is about mountain climbing, Ro-Kyu-Bu is about basketball. Both have some fanservice parts.

The vibe is pretty much just the same: loli's here and bishoujos there, harem, and you get these two here. Seiyuu-wise, Subaru (RoKyuBu) and Yotaro (Baby Princess) are both voiced by Yuki Kaji. You'll also find much Kana Hanazawa in RoKyuBu (Tomoka), and some in BabyPrincess (Mizuki), plus very Kanae Itou goodness, and pretty much Yuka Iguchi awesomeness.

Both are about group of cute girls enjoying sport activity. While Yama no Susume: Second Season is about mountain climbing and is more slice of life, Ro-Kyu-Bu is about basketball and is more ecchi.

Yuusha ni Narenkatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (aka YuSibu) & Ro-Kyu-Bu! are similar in which the main character is given a task in which at start he/she is reluctant to accept but after some persuasion finally agrees to help. The MC in both animes takes it as his/her duty to help one or multiple people over the multiple obstacles that they face. At times when the going gets tough the MC gets tougher and shows that he/she has the determination to see his work to the end and that his responsibility is fulfilled.

Jigoku Youchien and Ro-Kyu-Bu are both about a older boy having to take care of and coach/teach a bunch of rowdy young girls. Both shows have many lolicon jokes. 
report Recommended by Third-Impact
Lighthearted shows, enhanced by amazing voice acting, colorful backgrounds, cute character designs, and enjoyable fanservice.

The drawing style look pretty similar, characters' behavior and storyline too. Another common thing is about quantity and age of people, for example, people involved are almost all school friends and their families, and parents of al minors look like adolescents or at least really young to be parents. The biggest difference is that Clannad is more about the school, while Ro-Kyu-Bu! is more about sports, especially basketball. Another difference is that main characters in Ro-Kyu-Bu! are younger than main characters of Clannad.

A boy has to do with basketball girls. The shows offer sports as their background, and there are challenges between the girls. 
report Recommended by Disillusion
Both animes have basketball centered and have got characters with intense will to play/win. The biggest difference is probably that Ro-Kyu-Bu! has 'young' girls as main characters, whereas Kuroko no Basuke has mostly high school guys as main characters. Both have outstanding art!

A boy who takes care of beautiful younger special girls/lolis. The girls love him, but he does not fall into temptation to molest them and he protects them instead. 
report Recommended by Disillusion
Both shows have comedy, great art, the same voice actor for the male lead and a lot of loli fanservice. HenNeko even references Ro-Kyu-Bu in episode 10, when Tsutsukakushi is throwing away Yokodera's ero magazines.
