Similar powers and theme are presented in both series. Main character from both series have the power to see into the future. Their eyes glow too. MC friend in both series can use fire magic. The Red World is very similar to "The Ruined World". Only people who have special abilities can enter these worlds/dimensions.

Both protagonist happens to bump into a girl, and without knowing much about them decided to help them. They soon travel and help protect the girl without much decision. Both anime involves fighting and magical weapons/power, both girls use guns while the male protagonist uses a sword. If you enjoy magical fighting than you'll like these both.

Both protagonists got powers randomly and a female sidekick from nowhere. Both protagonists share a harem and are very similar in personality. There are similar characters, but different plots.

This anime is similar to F/SN even in the desing of Saber(Kurumi) and Gilgamesh (Ida). They are about a magic war.

"Magical Boy" Genre Cool Hero gets powers from Mysterious small black haired girl, ends up in situation where he must use his new found powers to save himself and said girl, brightly colored haired girl he knew from before also gets powers, though seemingly useless must be useful later on for something, cool friend also gets powers, siblings + family issues will probably be important later,

They're both so full of anime clichés that you almost start to wonder whether they're actually parodies. They're not. 
report Recommended by Firesui
Both involve magic and guns and give off the same feeling from the anime. Both have a girl who meets a boy. The guy used to be normal until he met someone and then after has to use magical powers. 
report Recommended by iNinjeek
Very similar powers between the main characters -battles centered on magic with great visuals 
report Recommended by SamuraiBlue19
They are similar because both shows are confusing. You have to think a lot and they share somehow the profile of the characters. Something to watch if you want a short show.
