Both ONA's have a cyber-punk setting, and both mainly take place in a café...

Both titles explore the similar lore of human interaction and the border between seeing an android as a living breathing entity or appliance such as a stove or a car. relationships are key in both series as the protagonist have varying views on whether to follow the discrimination against androids, giving them 'real' feelings or simply accepting them as man-made devices for varying uses. Unlike chobits, Eve No Jikan does not hold the same aesthetics's in design, there are more fine lines and deeper colors along with 3D visualization and some computer generated effects. This gives Eve no Jikan a more mature look then chobits  read more

Both involve robots that develop individuality.  
report Recommended by MotokoAramaki
In both shows, androids exist for similar purposes: to help their owners with cleaning, shopping, etc. However, the human characters and the androids have interactions that goes far beyond that of simple owners and robots. Some androids have human-like qualities that blurs the line between humans and androids which is something eminent in both shows.

Eve no Jikan is similar to Hal in a way that society lives with robots, Hal is more focused on romance, and drama in a single movie, Eve no Jikan has a similar setting but slightly different tone.

"Time of Eve" / "Eve no Jikan" and "Plastic Memories" both involve incredibly life-like androids with artificial intelligence that have been integrated into society and were produced to act as helpers for humans who need their assistance in daily life. In these two similar works, androids are advanced enough to be capable of displaying emotions as well as making their own decisions. Unfortunately, there also exists a limit as to how long they can operate for due to aging within their systems. As a result of that, the theme of loss is another commonality, where people who have grown attached to their android companions fear  read more

I haven't gotten deep into Bartender, but seeing how I've only seen a few cafe/restaurant setting animes around, Bartender and Eve no Jikan definitely have the same type of setting, with the former in an obscure bar and the latter in an obscure cafe. What's intriguing about the two is the emphasis on "backstory" rather than serving cocktails or coffee. Yeah, it's cool that you get to know about all these interesting cocktail mixes, or I guess the semi-relevant counterpart Eve blend coffee, but where each anime pulls strongly together is the influence and power the bar or the cafe has on its  read more

Both series immerse you in a future of day to day technology far beyond our own, yet taken from a perspective of rediscovering the wonder of said technology. While Denno Coil's main cast is far younger than Eve, they both have their unique takes on what this future could be, and spin a story worthy of attention. Both are hidden gems - you should take note of.

Both have similar philosophical themes about what makes a human human, however where GitS looks inward, EnJ looks at robot acceptance into society.

Androids in a cafe setting. Both very calming stories.

Many Real Drive episodes focus on androids and their place within a society of humans in a time when they depend on technology and brains enhanced by cybernetics. The story of Eve no Jikan stems from the same ideas. If you are curious about these science-fiction (?) elements, you'll hopefully enjoy watching Real Drive and Eve no Jikan.

Both feature very calm and relaxing/warm atmosphere. Both have similar style and sound theme. Mushishi deals with themes similar to ENJ in several episodes. Both animes feel very similar in terms of storytelling as well. One major difference, though, is that ENJ is set in the future, and Mushishi is set somewhere in 1800's (?).

If it was the action/horror part of Tokyo Ghoul that you liked, then this is probably not the anime for you. I am solely making this recommendation because I haven't seen anyone else do it, and I want to share my opinions. Eve no Jikan is only 6 episodes long. It's about a future where society uses human-like androids. But among the people who choose to see these androids as mere objects, there is a cafe called 'Eve no Jikan'. In this cafe, humans and androids are treated equally, much in the way ghouls and humans are in Anteiku. Both series also follow the main  read more

the story is slow paced and is not for people who want fast paced action packed 30 minutes of fun.usagi drop has its own unique style of story telling and the art is something new but after the first episode you get used to it its about a guy who takes in his supposedly grandpas daughter who is his aunt? the story revolver around him and his 6 year old aunt.. the loss of a parent and the beggining of a relationship and hardship of being a parent..

Both pose very interesting psychological questions. They also have some rather good comedy at times.

Both have a similar atmosphere, take place in an unusual bar/cafe and are in some way psychological.

Though these shows differ greatly from one another, they both deal with the meaning and frontiers of robotkind and mankind by making both interact. I especially enjoyed the fact that it was done in a concise and light-hearted way through chattering.

"Computer Revolution: The Birth of the Most Powerful and Fastest Brains" / "Computer Kakumei: Saikyou x Saisoku no Zunou Tanjou" and "Time of Eve" / "Eve no Jikan" focus on how society would function in a future where people are surrounded by artificial intelligence. In their respective universes, each shines a light on a competition between man and computer for jobs and tasks, the interactions between a person and an artificial intelligence in everyday life, and the possible relations that can develop between them over time.

both relies the same message to the watchers. While Eve no Jikan focus more between the interaction of humans to robot/androids, Natsume Yuujinchou focus on interaction of a human with demons. 
report Recommended by mlcdl
Both animes have human-based, futuristic robots which society often downgrades with the rare exception of the main protagonist, of course. In both animes, the main protagonist tries to convince or is in fact, convinced himself that these robot-types deserve to be treated the same way as humans, regardless of the fact on whether or not they have a soul.

Both explore the philosophical application of human rights to robots and the relationships between humans and robots.

Both are about how the machines manipulate the human world. It has very good graphics and it makes you think. 
report Recommended by Limonene
Robot stories completely different arguments, but with an interesting social background. Experimental Sci-Fic Anime. 
report Recommended by joksan
Both series' main aspect is about this powerful atmosphere witch they've been granted. We can easily understand the feelings and the messages the authors wanted to send in Bakemonogatari as it's made for Eve no Jikan. An other similar point is about this type of action, this kind of rhythm they both keep in the dialogs to captivate the attention, the earth of the watcher.

Both are science fiction stories with very similar animation styles and character designs.

I think it has the some style of technology... hmmm just watch Eve after Eden than you'll think so... maybe :p 
report Recommended by albadr_almuneer
Both series are science fiction anime peppered with a light hearted romance theme heavily influenced by Isaac Asimov's legendary work, I;Robot. It is rare to come across such refreshing series when wading through the boring, cartoon violence anime like FMA: Brotherhood mixed with fan service laden shows. Both are quintessential must watch series for the mature viewer.

Both are about the relationships between robots and humans. very touching:)

Both series feature handy and highly advanced robots/androids that humans become dependent on. Ergo Proxy has robots that have companionship with their owner, but Eve no Jikan has androids that are left as tools and often being discriminated. 
report Recommended by toanbui
The main social issues that crop up throughout each series are those of discrimination and racism. Eve no Jikan uses humans and robots to show this, while NieA Under 7 uses humans and aliens, and even takes it one step further by having a caste system for the aliens that even the aliens care about.

Both shows, show that it is possible to make an original anime that is awesome with just 6 episodes! Both SERIOUSLY WORTH WATCHING!!!!

Eve and Working make up two of the few restaurant-based animes that I know. Though differing heavily from the dark, mysterious aura of Eve and the light, happy-lappy atmosphere of Working, both animes' main male leads get sucked into their respective environments, discovering a unique array of characters while themselves maturing over time.

Aside from both being science-fiction, these wouldn't seem very similar at first. However, it's clear that one theme that both of these real hit home on is the contemplation of what it really means to be human. - Eve No Jikan is a very down to Earth tale showing a world where very life-like androids are commonplace . - Kaiba is set in a very fantasy-like futuristic universe where memories can literally be extracted or implanted into people. I'd heartily recommend both to anyone who likes thought provoking sci-fi. Try not to let Kaiba's visual's deter you from it. It's somewhat off-putting at first, but by the  read more

Eve no Jikan and Planetes are both hard sci-fi anime that depict a not-too-distant future. Both explore interesting themes that will really make you think.

Both are about a cafe where people with unique backgrounds come to share a common ground. The main characters both have unusual relationships that lead them to the different cafes.

The setting of Eve no Jikan and Ame-iro Cocoa is at a cafe which the main characters interact with each other and have wonderful time.

Fighting bigotry and overcoming societal boundaries are common themes in the two titles. Eve no Jikan takes the more serious approach of the two, and There She Is is more romance-oriented, but they both tackle said subjects beautifully and are excellent watches. 
report Recommended by Athena
I liked both. It may be a stretch (story-wise) recommending these two but give them a try. Reasons for recommendation: Both have a slight science fiction setting, animation is similar, Eve no Jikan is less than 20 minutes an episode so at 6 episodes X 20= 120 minutes. Summer wars is about the same length at 1 hr. 54 minutes (or less than 120 min.) You won't have wasted too much time with either.

The story of Katoran from Eve no Jikan is very similar to Rain Town plot, isn't it?
