Mouretsu Space Pirates and Rinne no Lagrange share the same frequency and wavelength, you want space-themed, strong girl-protagonist-adventures filled with cutesy, a pinch of slice-of-life elements?
These two shows, with matching number of episodes, won't disappoint you.
The universe they are both in must have existed in utopia (or a faraway future) where the destructive sins of humanity are long-forgotten or [almost] nonexistent, thus providing middle-range action and twists that won't haunt further on "cause and effects".

Both anime have girls fighting an other worldly enemy, pastel pallet of animation, psychological/tragedy aspect, and a club dedicated to helping other people that the main cast are members of. Both Rinne and Yuuki Yuuna have a strong theme of helping people by being heroic and having a strong sense of courage.

Both anime feature a school organization that goes around helping people with whatever they need. Both have some ecchi elements, although it's much lighter in Rinne than in Medaka Box. Finally, both series have supernatural themes, though it very dfferent ways with Rinne being sci-fi and Medaka being some sort of magic.
in both anime its the fun (mis)adventures of a group of cute girls who want to kiss eachother and i think the mysterious powers of midori (cute robot nickname) are similar to big rock-sama's because they are both magical and unpredictable and cause wacky things to happen
also they want to kiss eachother
+ All main mecha pilot is womans
+ War between two sides
De Metrio Empire vs Le Garite Empire (Rinne no Lagrange)
Norma vs DRAGONs & Human-Mana Empire (Cross Ange)
+ Similar character, for example : Embyro (Cross Ange) & Lizamarie De Roschefall (Rinne no Lagrange) is THE CREATOR. I say "THE CREATOR" because main story/conflict/mecha unit/source power using in Rinne no Lagrange & Cross Ange is created by both them.
+ Some yuri element can be found in both anime too
+ Mecha design also similar : Para-mail & Vox is transformable mecha units. Both mecha units have Humanoid mode & Bird-like mode
The main character is dragged into a fight that they formerly had no knowledge. In both cases, these fights involve using robots that were created by and ancient super advanced civilization, and they are the only people capable of using these specific robots.
Both are anime about a musical theme, a lot of cute girls, a rival group of pretty boys, mechs, and war against aliens.

Madoka, Lan and Muginami in Rinne are similar to Eruna, Seisa, and Otone in Mikagura where friends of MC are constantly picking fights with the other person but somehow find mutual agreement by MC, who happens to always be in a positive mood.
Rinne no Lagrange and Majestic Prince both feature good-hearted misfits that aspire to be heroes with their new found power. They each also have alternative mecha designs that explore limits beyond typical biped mechanics.
Pilots fighting outside of the box in battles instead of just using beam weaponry and machine guns. Both have very original and obscure mecha designs. Both have a relatable main protagonist, a geeky gamer instead of a sporty tomboyish girl.
Both have the same sic-fi, mech, action genre.
Both involves schools girls piloting mechs.
Both involves the earth being invaded by extra terrestrial beings.
The school girls in the other anime were drafted into service, while in the other anime the schools girls volunteer to be in the service.
The mechs in the other anime were extra terrestrial in origin, while in the other anime the mechs were built on earth.
There were only 3 mechs involved in the fighting of extraterrestrial invaders, while in the other anime there were a lot involved in the defense of earth.
I've dropped the other anime while I'm yet to see if the other one will interest me to follow it through.
Both SF meccha series are about teenage girls living in the future and fighting using robots as helpers. The main characters of both series are very similar, they have almost identical personalities and similar designs
Both series are mecha , and both protagonist are living a normal life until their lives are changed forever. Kyouno Madoka's life as a Jersey Club member changed when an alien named Lan asks her to pilot a robot , Watase Aoba's life turned upside down when a girl from his class saved him from a Valiancer claiming that she is from the future.
Coupling in Buddy Complex is somehow kind of similar in Rinne no Lagrange's memoria. Coupling can be done by two pilots that share the same brainwaves and an invisible bond is formed within them while the memoria in Rinne no Lagrange is a kind of bond the pilot and the robot share that the only people who have the memoria is the only one who can pilot the robot.
The only difference between both series is that the protagonist from Rinne no Lagrange is a female while the protagonist from Buddy Complex is a male.
It's mainly about a girl destined to pilot a mecha/robot. Both are great stories, and have great characters. If you liked one, you will like the other, although Jinki is a little confusing by the mid, it will clear out eventually, and you'll be glad you watched it.
