A group of people saving the world from something. Different events happening that coincide with one another. The main character is somehow linked to these events. Both have crazy type actions with super heroes. Although Concrete has a magical girl while Punch Line does not.

Concrete Revolutio and Kekkai Sensen (taking place in alternate, more colorful versions of Japan and New York respectively) both have premises involving a gang of individuals whose primary objective is to main the fragile peace between humans and otherworldly beings with supernatural abilities. Expect lots of funky colors and explosions.

They both have almost similar vibes aside from their super power abilities, the characters personalities and those opponents that they'll encounter.

~ Both 'Concrete Revolutio' and 'Hamatora' have humans with amazing abilities as their main plot. ~ Also they share that confusion through society about if those 'super-humans' are good or bad for the world, if they deserve to be called 'heroes' or 'villains'. ~ Another thing they share: they count with a vast 'palette' of colours, which you can especially appreciate in characters and backgrounds.

Boku no Hero Academia and Concrete Revolutio are both series about superpowers done by studio Bones. Each show has a first cour of 13 episodes. Both have a fairly large cast. Each of them have somewhat unique art styles. They are also both fairly weird series. If you liked one, you will probably like the other.

Despite their strikingly different premises and visual styles, UN-GO and Concrete Revolutio share the same concerns. Both series are intensely political, casting a critical eye on both cold-hearted pragmatism and blind nationalism, and showing how easily public opinion can be manipulated. The overarching tone is of weary cynicism -- not the "edgy", nihilistic cynicism of a grimdark series, but the cynicism of a disillusioned idealist who still believes that people should be capable of better things. While the postwar settings are different - one in a near-future dystopia, the other in an alternate-universe Japan - the real war being referenced (and the postwar issues in its  read more

Pritty much anime any with Supernatural is bound to have something like superpowers. So this is an anime that tells an interesting story of a boy with superpowers meeting other character with superpowers. It starts off slow and funny, however after the mid part it begins to really show it's strong points. The opening is AMAZING IMO. The characters are actually interesting and the sittuations they run in-to are kind of average but the way they handle them is diffrent from the traditional heroes way. If you have the paitence to watch it till the end you will not regret it ! It starts of  read more

Both of these Anime use an experimental art style, which is very jarring. Concrete Revolutio's art actually made sense as a depiction of 1970's comic book art. We will see if Reflection has a point for its art style.

Both series utilize the history of Showa Japan to contextualize their exploration of various topics which occasionally dip into the same territory; Tetsujin 28-go is set in the mid-late 50s while Concrete Revolutio spans the mid 60s to early 70s. Historical events are frequently referenced. Both feature mecha action.

Concrete Revolutio and Mekakucity Actors are both very colorful shows about super powers. Both shows also have very unique art styles. Both shows have a charcters who are orphans and are adopted by another character.

Both of these two anime have a main character that can transform into a superhuman being and uses his power to fight against evil. They also have groups of people with superpowers trying to project humanity while hunting down other monsters.  
report Recommended by Genocyberfanboy
These two anime are tokusatsu inspired anime that have taken influence from Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and other classic Japanese live action superheroes. These two action pack shows have characters that henshin (transform) into battle and fight against other powerful characters with superhuman powers.

This show may be confusing to some, but if you enjoyed the Monogatari series, you'll get through this no problem. Concrete Revolutio often switches between both future and past perspectives which can cause confusion, I would recommend focusing most on the past during the first season and the future during the second season.

Space Patrol Luluco and Concrete Revolutio are both shows with unique art styles. They are both about an organization that basically helps protect the city/world with their powers. Each show is also very weird. They are both some of the most colorful anime that I have seen.

Explosions! Giant robots! Colors! Nonsense! You get carried away by the nonsensical plot before you can even breathe. The pacing is very fast. Both animes have an organization with very distinct and crazy members, each one with a unique power.

You might be surprised to see ConRevo as a recommendation for Occultic;Nine (and vice versa), but please give it a chance. Both series are of the sci-fi/mystery variety, extremely confusing, fast-paced, but clearly smart, have a great voice cast, fun OST, and vibrant visuals. If you don't mind being confused from the start and have enough patience, attention, and analytical ability to follow the plot, you will enjoy both Occultic;Nine and ConRevo immensely. Once you get the whole picture, you can't help but feel excited and see just how cool these shows are.

both anime has the same main genre; Mystery, Super Power. and those people which have a supernatural people making an organization. I like them because the plot is complicated and has a good story. Both this anime is serve the series in the same ways. In a series there's a many cases and finishes at that episode. that's make me feel this series is little boring.

Features a large, campy cast of super-powered characters. The powers range in practicality, but all have their own thematic significance to the overall message. Nuclear power and family play a huge role in the main characters' development. 
report Recommended by BoyHime732
In the beginning, each episode's plot is self contained, but by the end continuity has been made clearer. If you like the bright colors and striking outlines in one, the other will have a similarly pleasing aesthetic. Two shows that are great for living in the moment and reveling in the creativity of their makers.

Both are very similar where the Main characters care for a different kind instead of his own and start on a journey to help people in need. 
report Recommended by AkatsukiUlquiora
Exactly they have the same anime style. You will see similar style in graphics and movement. I feel they both was done by the same studio and the same director and maybe even the same team. If you enjoy one of them, mostly you will enjoy the other one.

Very similar animation, character design, and story telling. Concrete clearly pays homage to Kikaider in several ways. In an early episode the main character of Concrete (Jiro) is seen acting quite a bit like the main character of Kikaider (also Jiro). Both characters were unaware and/or rejected their true natures and had a lady helping them accept it. 
report Recommended by AnimeObasan
Both shows have a 'hunt down the bad guys!' theme, also Jiro and Leon's personalities and values are similar. 
report Recommended by OR242
Both appear to have a mix of different aspects such as robots, aliens, superpowers and superheroes. Both portray a society where these things are common place. 
report Recommended by Shuc49
Both are from Shou Aikawa, and both are about a crew of people fighting monsters with super powers. They tread a lot of the same thematic ground, and have very similar finales. 
report Recommended by RogerSmith2004
The animation style in both shows is kinda similar. Magical girls are present in these anime, although Concrete Revolutio also has characters with other super powers (mechs, shapeshifting, etc.). Concrete Revolutio is a standard TV show length (~24 minutes per episode) whereas Mahou Shoujo Taisen episodes are shorts (~4 minutes per episode).

Both series have unconventional genre shifts (Samflam a bit more) and unconventional pacing methods (Concrete a bit more), which dooms them to low MAL ratings because people didn't "get" it. 
report Recommended by somaisbatman
Similar striking visuals and rather unconventional story telling. While both shows have fundamentally different plots, they both involve superpowered humans (or heroes) fighting each other in over-the-top fighting sequences. 
report Recommended by MoeGod
Both series feature similar art styles and directing techniques. The type of storytelling which takes place in both the present and the past is shared, as well as the types of bright and colorful characters that fill up the cast and lament upon their pasts. The bright and dynamic character and set designs that Kyousogiga has is seen in Concrete Revolutio as well.
