Flawed people explore their emotions while recognizing the consequences of their actions. 
report Recommended by Serviam
Both series feature teenagers overwhelmed with emotions and learning how to grasp relationships while making mistakes along the way. Relationships in both shows grow more complicated with more people entering the focus of the web of relationships.

Both main characters are helping each other to get the one they really love 
report Recommended by yardargami
Both shows take a more serious and dark look at relationships than your average anime. Nana explores this through its myriad of multi-faceted relationships of all kinds (often romantic), while Kuzu no Honkai is a more tightly focused piece on the psychology of sex. Both are compelling and often tough to watch, in a good way (like an emotional human trainwreck).

Both anime have kinda "agressive" romance.
Nazo is maybe more specific than Kuzu.

You are wondering what these anime have in common when they have different plots. while it is true that they differ in the story, they have some similarities. If you're a fan of :
- beautiful artwork
- melancholic instrumental music
- taboo love
- lots of erotic scenes
Then you'll probably like these anime. In Kuzu no Honkai the characters are developed better while Yosuga no Sora is by arcs. The Genres are different since one is a seinen and other is a (eroge) harem but nevertheless, they are both mature anime.

Both shows have a somewhat similar feel to them, both of them being equally dark and depressing (whilst I must say, Aku no Hana takes the cake on the depressing portion).

Kinky Stuff happens in secret...

Tried to do much honeytrap and sexual acts to keep in company..
Since the romance in each other is still there..

Hanabi and Mugi's indecent relationship is actually similar to Wakana and Izumi ..

Multiple love triangles in both series. (Ex: Mugi, Hanabi, Sanae in Kuzu no Honkai and Mika, Seiji, Namie in DRRR !!)
Many romances or twisted loves between the characters. (Eg Akane of Kuzu no Honkai or Haruna of DRRR !!)
These series are very focused on the psychology and the development of the characters.

Like Hachiman, Every character had a some ideology within themselves... as they talk about their living in life with such a messy and bad routine

The drama had a same average occuring in some thematic scenario...
Some scenes are just too provocative... it burdens some point of view which is too delusional and cynical... and it's not also your average romance.. to start with

Hana and Ringo look similar. They both are inlove with an older man (that both wear glasses) who they see as an older brotherly figure and are inlove with them. Hana and Ringo's crushes fall inlove with another person who appear to be something they truly aren't. Mawaru penguin's plot doesn't really revolve around Ringo's situation, but Ringo's story takes up a big chunk of mawaru penguin.

This is a rare breed of anime - mature romance. 
report Recommended by AlexGK
Kuzu no Honkai and Koi Kaze both explore forbidden love in a very dramatic way, and flesh out the conflicting emotions that those kinds of relationships can bring about. I'd also recommend KimiNozo and Aku no Hana to the masochists who are into Kuzu no Honkai, as I think those shows can elicit a similar sense of emotional desperation.

- Similarly light artstyle
- Love webs everywhere
- Self absorbed preteens and teenagers 
report Recommended by Lemon
Both shows are:

- Ladden with heavy drama
- Full of love problems: X likes Y, Y like Z, Z like everyone etc. etc.
- about self-absorbed, self-loathing teenagers

The artstyle is very different. but the atmosphere is similar; both make attempts to appear smart, mature, and full of depth much like the teenage protagonists the two shows focus on. 
report Recommended by Lemon
Both anime have a female student who loves her teacher and even has a female teacher to make it a love triangle. There isn't much at all that makes the two anime similar, but both anime really sell the sense of guilt they explore. Kodomo no Jikan explores the dangers of lolicon while Kuzu no Honkai explores multiple spectrums of a sick kind of love, but both anime don't hold back and have a sense of guilt if you're into that kind of thing.
