(very)Generally speaking... Both series are about humans against non-human-but-human-like-form of unknown enemies. Both have special forces. Both have some kind of rocky development of an atmosphere: from the 'summer vacation' to "all hell breaks loose". No safety for any character.

They are both animes about a superior yet primitive race with terrifying powers who continue to evolve at an alarming rate, becoming more intelligent each step thus becoming a greater danger/terror for the humanity thought a select few who are "special" in ways take it up against these creatures. They both contain some good ol' bloody gore and horror!

Waifus, aliens and fight for better tomorrow. Did I mention waifus? You'll like them.

Humans turning into bug/animal-like creatures. 
report Recommended by garydai
Both are sci-fi horror anime dealing with humanity fighting insects much like the film "Starship Troopers". In my opinion, Blue Gender is the more atmospheric of the two while Terra Formars has more action.  
report Recommended by THEAnimeHERO
Both contain battles with meta-morphed life forms. Both interweave deaths with superb storytelling and awesome fights. There is a certain 'feel' that you can get in the last arc of hunterxhunter 2011 that you also get in the second half of Terra Formars which is perhaps due to their similar use of narrators.

Heavily relies on flashbacks to tell a story.

A limited number of weaponized/genetically augmented humans must defeat a seemingly endless population of engineered monsters, for the sake of humanity. Where the characters of Terra Formars are determined to exterminate highly evolved cockroaches on Mars, to stop the spread of a fatal virus plaguing earth, the MCs of Guyver stumble into a society of genetically engineered monsters, with the intent and resources to dominate humanity.

I can't believe people haven't recommended this yet, cause they are very similar to each other. Both have the same setting in future where people battle against aliens, and there is a lot of blood and gore. They also have sci-fi elements in it and Freezing has a lot of ecchi. Both main protagonists have special abilities superior to those around them. So these shows are practically the same.

Both are about space. Both have spaceships. Uchuu Kyoudai has a lot of hardships and feels though, telling the story of the acual hardship of becoming and astronut to go to space between brothers. Terra on the other hand is about characters who go to space to fight and protect Earth by showing what might be needed of an astronaut in the future if Earth needed protection on another planet.

Terra Formars and elDLIVE are both anime about people with special powers fighting aliens to protect earth. One of the main characters in both series had a friend die, and this is the main reason they fight. The main male character is an orphan in both series. Almost all of the main male characters are perverts. The main male character has a crush on the main female character who is blond in both series. She hates it when he looks at her sexually. The base of each team is a spaceship. Both series have a fair amount of flashbacks. They fight for an organization, U-NASA  read more

For Saving a humanity in the world, a group of people have to fight a unknown creatures and bet them lives. Both are violence, but Terra formars have darker inside.. Similar in plot, but in God Eater have some Supernatural, Demons, Militaries and Fantasy, and Terra formars delivers horror, sci-fi and Space .. yeah maybe if you like god eater, you'll interest for watch Terra Formars ..

Both anime involve humans desperately battling against hoards of aliens resulting in many gory deaths and a continuous feeling of despair.  
report Recommended by Calherbie
Terra Formars is like Fist of the North Star meets Starship Troopers. While they have different settings, they are both filled with manly action that will keep your testosterone pump up. You have muscular characters that use superhuman powers to fight other powerful enemies. Not to mention these titles are very violent too. They have enough action to keep you entertained.

There are many things about Highschool DxD and Terra Formars. In DxD, the main characters are trying to kill all the fallen angels. In Terra Formars, the main characters are trying to kill all the Terra Formars. There are many battle scenes and bloody parts.

If you ever wanted to see anime about tough, badass insects duking it out, here you go. 
report Recommended by abystoma2
Both anime take place in a future where humans are fighting highly evolved alien enemies. The fight is to determine the more dominant species and the loser is just vermin. Suisei's future is far after humans had abandoned earth (thousands and colonized far out into the universe. Their ships shoot lasers, warp through space, and have sentient AI. However, the main story of this takes place in a lost colony and is relatively lighthearted as our space fleet main learns to communicate with a lost culture, until he finds and has to fight the alien species again... and learn their true origin. Terra Formar's future is 500 years  read more

Both are gorey anime about humans vs aliens and humans being infected by alien viruses or parasites that enable them to fight back against the aliens. Did I mention the aliens seem to have extreme bloodlust for humans?

Both are similar because they deal with mutant vs. mutant, and having a dark theme. I used Google Translator.

GAR, rule-of-cool, fighting mutant animals by taking their traits, and an alien evolution conspiracy. 
report Recommended by Roruman
An adaptation that had potential but is a mix of greatness and fail. Both failed at being faithful to their source material, since Berserk feels like a half-edgy shounen when it's one of the best dark fantasy seinen, and Terraformars lost the horror factor. Berserk condenses too much material while Terraformars is too dragged out, and both end of course incomplete. The fighting feems campy, as intended for Terraformars, but not in the original Berserk, and there is in particular a recurring sound effect of a punch getting sucked into void for Terraformars and the Dragonslayer hitting like a fry pan in Berserk... Watch only for some cool moments,  read more

At the start of the Terra Formars series, I would never have thought I'd be comparing this show with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. How could a show about cockroaches killing humans be similar to a show about vampires and pillar men? After watching about 10 episodes, I found the answer. The answer is very simple. They're both outrageous. Simply outrageous. Let's take a look at Jojo first of all and see why it succeeded as the popular anime we know today. Characters are know to be extremely muscular and GAR. Side characters are constantly dying. The battles are remarkably memorable and particularly so extraordinary to the point the  read more

Creepy humanoid cockroaches doing creepy movements.

Both are sci-fi actions where humans fights strong insect-like enemies. Some of the humans also have specia powers similar to the monsters. Both are violent, but Terra Formars is heavily censored (the tv version, that is).

They feel almost identical. I can't reveal too much without spoiling Blassreiter.
