I found these shows to be alike in their atmosphere. Another and Mayoiga are very eerie and set a certain uncomfortable (something bad is going to happen) atmosphere. Mayoiga and Another are both uncovering a secret about a village/class and indulge in mystery. Another is more horror geared than Mayoiga that's more mystery based.

The both have Psychological experiments as a premise. They take place in a mysterious village tucked in the middle of nowhere similar themes of ghosts, characters with strange personalities, and legends

Mayoiga is marketed as a horror however it can be watched as a comedy, similar to Ousama Game. The atmosphere is dark and edgy in both shows, however, Mayoiga is less serious. Both shows are in the mystery genre and neither show tries to explain the supernatural events in a comprehensive way.

Both main characters are pretty small and weak, filled with bright hope and hero feelings, and give off a similar aura. I think this is a good reason to watch the other if you liked the main character in one. Both settings are mysterious and give off bad vibes. If you enjoyed that mysterious feeling, then you will probably like the other. Both have a diverse character set that makes the plot more enjoyable.

Same type of psychological approach, about characters though difference is that in Mayoiga a group of people visits the uncertainty(village) whereas in Mousou Dairinin people get visits from such.

Though they start off very differently, the eventual idea of both series centres around a cast of characters with internal scars which prevent them from leaving the place they are trapped in. Angel Beats is more slice of life-ish while Mayoiga is more centred around mystery.

The cast is a dysfunctional group/family. They are confronted with unconventional supernatural phenomenons. This leads to a mystery/psychological. The art style is similar, too.

In both anime the focus lies on a quite small group of people who find themselves in an isolated village Both anime have a dark atmosphere

Self-Protective. Defying my Key and Ke paradigm: absolute epitomes of sainism while absolute craters of masokinism. Every character has much to say, repeatedly struggling to speak. The stories expose a sense of morality where the unique-ness of every individual is precious simulating why meaning even when the relative isolation which preserves that is a hindrance. Mayoiga suggests how detachment between many individuals simultaneously complicates conflict resolved by consensus and diversifies the side-effects of that resolution. Subete ga F ni Naru presents an issue of nihilism when many individuals develop too robust of deductive and predictive reasoning, where the only question left is how to make  read more

A much better mystery with crime and police elements instead of from a civilian prospective. 
report Recommended by YoshikuniTaiki
To be honest, both of these animes are polar opposites. However, if you like Mayoiga, you will most certainly take interest in Terror in Resonance. Both animes have characters that dislike the world, as they feel that injustice, in some form was used against them. Terror in Resonance also shares the rather uneasy atmosphere that is found in Mayoiga.

#DankRecs Both have a thought provoking message to convey about life and how the character finally has a resolve to deal with it. Also both anime is surreal and funny in their own way.

Both are entertaining horror anime, and can make you creep out with an ugly faces and creepy sound effects. Just ignore the storyline to make the experience more enjoyable. kikoushi is more creepy than mayoiga.

What can you do when you have to start a new life? How to cooperate with others when you end up in a quaint place? How does a newly formed group deal on its own with otherness and danger? What to expect and what to be afraid of? Two different shows, that seem to be very similar at the same time, will try to answer these questions.

Lots of characters, put in an unknown environment trying to survive. There is lots of flash backs. 
report Recommended by Sphealz
Both are incredibly memeingful, unintentional B horror-esque comedies that just keep escalating the further in you get. Testing the very concept of how much suspension of disbelief one can have.  
report Recommended by NekouSpectre
Both have a large cast of oddballs and society's rejects. Assassination Classroom handles it a lot better in that they are not a bunch of complete idiots.

Dark and unsettling shows about youngsters being involved in dangerous circumstances in their lives while they unfold the truth and mysteries of a strange place.

Both are spooky and mysterious, both keep you guessing on what's going to happen next. Similar in quality of story, characters and setting.

Crazy and unpredictable! Weekly madness to brighten your life!

Both shows concentrate on finding the right ways in one's life. Both protagonists fight against prejudice and discrimination of the girl everybody else sees as bad. Both shows contain supernatural powers and in both shows teenagers are the main characters who move the plot forward. I also got the same wibe from the two shows and the male protagonists seem similar to me, but that is only my personal feeling.

A Group of people trapped in one place, while problems occur between them.

Both shows involve characters with issues and emotional traumas that manifest physical form and play a huge role in story development.

Extreme Malware in real isolation. In a reality bodies jealously guard expansive empirical minds; in another one mind jealously arbitrates diffusive mental occupation. Barrel scraping effort causes flirtation with infectious silliness, in other words gaslighting. Approaching singular conflict with cascadingly compounding subconflicts, to extract entropy as efficiently as imaginably possible, damaging sanities either by one's rules repairably or by another's irreparably. One takes place in mindscape, while the other in the land of bodies, considering bodily needs most of which may be trivially resolved while the other focusing on destruction lack of entropy causes. Mayoiga is mildly brutish in its handling of bodies never passing a  read more

Both shows involve a cast of people who have had tough pasts and desire to escape them. Mayoiga has that "horror" hint to it whereas Grisaia doesn't. Grisaia has a smaller cast than Mayoiga which allows a clear story and character development (in my opinion) I'm surprised no one else has recommended Grisaia for Mayoiga.
