Clannad and Rewrite were both written by Key and had similar male main characters, the story unfolds around the interaction of the MC with the the girls around him while he becomes closer to them. These two series have a similar art and story lines, filled with romance, comedy and drama.

-Both of The Main Characters in their Perspective Series (Touma and Kotarou) are known as the Weak ones But They have some kind of Overpower Ability tho. -Similar Fighting Style and Some of The Attacks they use are similar to one another as well tbh. -Both of The MC's have a Harem. -Accelerator and Yoshino have Similar Personalities and Likes To Fight for no reason Whatsoever (But Accelerator is a little bit more Crazy tbh). If you Like Toaru or Rewrite Then you Might Like those two Anime tbh.

They both have multiple heroines with a male protagonist as the main character at the center of everything. Each heroine has a unique past later found out through the anime. However, "Rewrite" has a supernatural theme to it unlike the series of "Grisaia".

High School students with supernatural powers and Main characters are trying to save the world with their powers.

Both are adapted from Visual Novels by Key. Both feature a hero in a school setting surrounded by cute girls, each with their own story, and both feature subtle elements of fantasy and supernatural, mixed with tragedy. Also, MintJam does the theme music in both.

If you like the frustrating feeling of seeing the main character die multiple times in gruesome ways and having to start all over again, then this is especially for you.

both talk about a man with alot of girls around him and also there is a bit of drama in both shows, both shows have a bit of mystery in the episodes

Both explore the option of world lines and the whole time travel theory whereby our timelines diverge from one another. Rewrite has superpowers though, if you're into that. Warning though: If you watched Steins;Gate first, you may not like Rewrite. If you watched Rewrite first, you'll feel that Steins;Gate is much deeper and has better character development. Regardless, both anime are interesting.

Both are visual novel adaptions about a male protagonist who’s surrounded by pretty girls with secrets, who also has to unravel the mysteries that surround them. Both anime share more plot similarities after several episodes in, which are hard to explain without spoiling both shows.

Kyoukai no Janata is similar to rewrite as both the main male protagonist have the same nature Akihito Kanbara and kotorou tennouji have free nature but still they have some super power which they try to hide not only that they both have blond hair color .(:

Both anime series revolve around the story of students who posses supernatural powers and mix it with a touch of romance. The approach to both aspects is really similar and watching Sakurada Reset (first 2 episodes or so) reminded me of Rewrite.

Rewrite and Shoushin Shoujo Matoi share some similar characters and similar atmosphere/feel to the show. In each there are supernatural things that mesh into society. There are also several organizational groups in each show that all seem to be after one goal. Each of these shows throw a lot of information at you at once and they also try be comical. Shoushin Shoujo Matoi involves magical girls and rewrite has much more supernatural plot twists in each character. If you enjoyed one I would recommend the other. 
report Recommended by Nikoru-san
Both anime deal with environmental themes; the main characters are confronted with difficult questions which doesn't only involve those dear to them; but the fate of all of mankind. Rewrite has a male main character with a harem of 6 females, and has more comedy than Arjuna, which mainly revolves around one female character.

Both are VN adaptations from Key/Visual Art's. Both series shows on how our world can be destroyed by humanity. Both have a male protagonist with atleast 1 main female heroine. Both are drama stories, but Rewrite is more focused on world building/development, while Planetarian is focused on the character's interactions.

Both Main Characters are chasing after a supernatural creature/phenomenon happening withing their school. Both anime also employ comedy/supernatural atmosphere.
