SukaSuka is like Plastic Memories if you fleshed out the world and made it stand on its own, setting it apart from the romance plot. Plastic Memories is like SukaSuka because it focuses on a girl who does not have much time left to be with the one she loves. One is high fantasy, the other is sci-fi. Both are tearjerkers.

Both consist primarily of a typical slightly-moody light-novel protagonist surrounded by a harem of loli girls geared for combat. WorldEnd's mc has a slightly better-constructed backstory and reasons for brooding, and the mc, while still (over)powerful in his own way, isn't capable of fighting side-by-side with the loli girls like in Black Bullet. WorldEnd is also more lighthearted with less emphasis on life-and-death situations.

Both are Sci-Fi oriented where war and military play a big role. They're also very Drama-heavy with a large cast of different characters. The biggest similarity is that in both, humans are used as a weapon. Both shows have a similar MC, leading and taking care of a group.

These shows are both set in a post-apocalyptic world wherein they have to fight against invaders. In Darling in the FranXX you have the Klaxosaurs and in Suka Suka there are Beasts.

I couldn't really say that these anime are similar in the term of story, but if we're talking about the MC, there are a few similar toward them. First, both of the MC are secretly really powerful. Second, both of the MC dealt with magic. Besides of that, both of the anime are fantasy themed anime. It even aired in the same year and the same season. Both of the anime have a dark moment either. However, SukaSuka is more a romance anime, while RokuAka is more a comedy anime.

Same fantasy setting and atmosphere (though Re:Zero is much darker), except that the protagonist isn't being sent from the real world.

The feeling after the last episode is the same as when you finish Angel Beats but multiply it by about 2 xD They were both stunning Animes but SukaSuka takes the definitive lead !

cute and colorful but sad. tired of happy-go-lucky mahou shoujo's? try this. I know you enjoyed Madoka now this should do the trick too

Strong main heroine. Similar apocalyptic world. Just some characters can really fight against the enemy. Nice love story but not the most important part of it. Good soundtrack. They can make you feel that feeling of despair that you should have when the world is hopeless and everything is lost, but to never give up because there is always a reason to fight.

Both are post-apocalyptic fantasies revolving around a protagonist who holds a title that entails interacting with fairies. Fairies play a important role in both stories. While one is more comical, the other is more tragic. Both protagonists take their job seriously considering few have held the position.

These shows have a different atmosphere, but a similar fate. The main characters are fighting for their life, as assassins or as soldiers, and will face death many times during the story. These are not light hearted stories, in fact, it's the exact opposite.

The premises of living.. with a Beast in a non existent area.. may been.. very terrifying.. Loathed and seen by a wanderer.. who has a dangerous biological weapon that could end your life.. Wars can much of a deal in a tragic state... That every single one of them... won't have anything to remain them to be alive Same Setting... The only thing difference in this show.. is SukaSuka express in a melodic.. heavy wavering... tone while Zero Kara.. started much as a cruel.. assertive vibes

Similar to God Eater both plots have special weapons that can only be used by a selected few to fight monsters.

A timeless tale of melancholic romance and fantasy, delving into story of SukaSuka gave me the most intriguing sense of déjà vu. And now I have finally identified the familiarity embedded deeply beneath my anime-watching journey – Howl’s Moving Castle. The formula they use is an ancient one that closely resembles the Greek mythologies I read with passion as a child. Founded upon incredibly intricate worlds in which magic and sufferings culminate in the most peculiar of forms, SukaSuka and Howl’s Moving Castle introduces viewers to a multicolored amalgamation of emotions where one’s conviction in love and loss is repeatedly put to the test in  read more

Both related a novel and development of similar characters. Passing a pleasant climate even if in a heavy environment (War, discord...)

-blue haired female lead ・female protagonist in sukasuka does some action too though -made me cry -protagonists both are good fighters(?) the settings of each is pretty different, a medieval magic romance versus this. each protagonists stumbles into a blue haired girl and slowly gets closer to them. planetarian is more emotional but i'd say sukasuka is more memorable. nevertheless they're both good watches.

Some people might be somewhat cynical about the harem label in Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? , but do not misunderstand it, take a look at characters formation that is built, they are not much different, each woman has a unique 'power' accompanied by a man who is pivotal and very precious to them. 
report Recommended by Hasnaspatia
It's a story about something that you and every character in the show/movie want, but you can't have. The ending fills you with a hollow pit of sadness that you can't escape. I'm saying that if you wanna cry then watch either of these. Good things happen but the knowledge of something sad is there and it makes the story more interesting. Knowing that I still watched them... Maybe I'm a masochist? I wouldn't know.

These two gave me the same vibes in the weirdest way possible. Both tell the story of a military like man helping a girl whom society sees as just an object, but who is actually a human being at heart. Even if the context is not the same, the two hurt our hearts with emotions, where we know that everything can fall of and become incredibly sad from one episode to another. In addition to that, includes a kind of side story with an impossible romance, seen by the other people in their respective worlds.

- Similar male protagonists who struggle in their society, yet vow to protect it. - They are also two of the most mature protagonists. - Adorable female protagonists who steal the spotlight. - Good mixture of light-hearted episodes and heavy-hearted episodes.

Suka suka and clannad is similar animes because lot of things in those animes are little bit similar. For ex- the love story, emotions, feelings. In those animes ending we almost cry. But, in middle part there is lot of fun and other good things which we like it. So i recommend clannad is similar to suka suka.

sorry if i am very bad tat writing recommendations. The plot is kind of like the same to Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka, and the "drama" also appears mostly at 1 to 2 last eps. The drawing is not bad, it's a little bit above decent. I don't know, watching this just makes me recall of the despair i had whist watching Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka.

Both stories are have lead heroines who are both resolute and cheery against overwhelming odds. Both have great music and similar themese, and both produce similar feelings.

These shows are a mirror image of each other, so similar but with wildly different outcomes. Both shows are set in worlds that have heavy fantasy/action elements, but those elements are secondary. The main focus of each show is the characters and how their relationships develop over the course of the show, whilst also focusing on character development from the past. There's also a heavy through-line of fighting fate in both. In SukaSuka, it's the fate of the Leprechauns to sacrifice themselves to fight the Beasts roaming the surface of Earth, in Banished it's Ruti's fate to be the Hero and defeat the demons for the  read more

Similar premise in terms of World Building. Post apocalyptic world filled with alien like beings of mass destruction fought by human like creatures piloted by human children/ re-animated using the souls of human children. Both are also dark and gritty.

Both main leads were from orphanages, they were the older-brother figures in their respective orphanages. Both are set in a post-apocalypse world, both feature floating cities and its inhabitants fighting against monsters left on the uninhabitable surface. Both feature main female leads [Nina Antalk in Chrome and Chtholly in Sukasuka] prominent in the first half or so, but at the end overtaken by another female lead [Felli in Chrome and Nephiren in Sukasuka]

Both have action/fantasy/romance/drama. Both have strong MC's who can all fight. Romeo X Juliet is of course even more romance focused than Sukasuka, but I think both have very enjoyable romance that develop over the course of the series. On the other hand, Sukasuka has even more fantasy elements to it. If you liked One I suggest checking out the other if you're in the mood for another action/fantasy/romance/drama.

both of them are post-apocalyptic anime. besides, both of them contain supernatural and superpower material; not to mention that the main mystery of these two anime are pretty much identical (trust me, this is no spoiler)

Both are romantic dramas about a girl who fights with special powers. SukaSuka has more of a romantic focus, while Shana is more focused on action.

Fairies and Claymores are both made to fight of threats of beasts/ youmas. Story is really similar in cases where truths are hidden, and how beasts/ youma came to be. Both animes have characters fighting for survival. Fairies and Claymores are all female as well, both have one main male lead that attempts to try to save the main heroine.

Both shows are set in a post-apocalyptic world world where people live on isolated islands, and the people have an enemy that they must defeat (in SukaSuka it is the beasts; in Gargantia it is the hideaze). Although the themes portrayed are different, both main characters are soldiers living in an environment unlike others living there and struggle with finding what is most important in life.

Both anime have cute little girls used as weapons, and a male protagonist (in Alice & Zouroku the male protagonist is an old man) to protect them Both are dark anime (airing in the same Spring 2017 season) that looks and feels "lighthearted"

Though the settings are quite different, both series ask similar questions and handle a main romantic relationship well.

Looking for something after SAO Alicization and SukaSuka??? Mo Dao Zu Shi absolutely did more than just the job! Like SukaSuka it is beautiful, epic, and there is a burst of emotions where you will feel tragic near the end. By the end of the anime, you will share the same opinion that it is so beautiful, but Mo Dao Zu Shi is also very funny. Like SAO Alicization , there is stunning action and fights. I find IN ALL THREE, A TRULY WORTHY ANIME, great characters, superb art and animation, and a FASCINATING STORY !!!

- A fantasy world where you have to fight to live. - Characters live together in one house. - Tragedy - so many sad things about every character. - MC feels responsible for everyone so he tries to be leader. MC is trusted, but unlike other shows, he works hard to be seen trustworthy, not just words. - Moderate ecchi - some thrown hidden adult jokes. - Characters falling in love with MC; other opening up to him. - Watching Shuumatsu gives me feeling of watching Gensou no Grimgar.

Sad moe girls in post-apocalyptic settings. Both feature more slice-of-life stuff than its respective genres. They have the same bad humor too. A perfect couple like Kutori and WIllem.

Looking for a great original fantasy story? SukaSuka and Tegami Bachi feature beautiful post-apocalyptic fantasy worlds with a little bit of technology. SukaSuka takes place on islands floating in the sky, while Tegami Bachi takes place in what seems to be the underground. The wastelands of these worlds are inhabited by dangerous giant monsters which can only be defeated by children (The characters from SukaSuka are slightly older and female only, while the characters in Tegami Bachi are boys). Also both anime are really sad; I really recommend you to watch them.

The characters of both anime live in unique, well built fantasy worlds. In both worlds some kind of apocalypse seems to have happened; and now the characters live on islands in the sea of clouds/sea of sand. The main characters (the protagonist from SukaSuka and the female lead from Kujira no Kora) have been retrieved from ruins from an ancient civilization. The characters have been cursed with the power to use magic (Venenum/Thymia), which greatly reduces their lifespans. Both anime have some action and comedy; but don't focus on either; and have dark mysteries waiting to be unveiled.

theres only one thing sukasuka is good for and that is some wholesome feels, one half of which is in the 'lolis are for hugs and parental love' department, because the non-cookie characters act like actual people would which, for some reason, makes them very relatable to y'know, the people who watch it usagi drop is basically -the- anime about wholesome parenthood and adorable children, go get your fix you wholesome bastards 
report Recommended by Entraya
sukasuka is -still- only good for its wholesome feels, and it very lovably puts all the tragic LN BS in the background in favor of an organic romance between two very 'human' characters expelled from paradise is a love letter of sorts to genuine humanity, between genuine human dude and the LN protagonist cliche virtual world mecha gal, in a world where earth is screwed. again, it's very human, instead of belaboring its epic LN setting

Young girl becomes an ultimate weapon and last hope of humanity of survival. But there is still a man who tries to help her preserve her humanity. Same drama and vibes.

Both animes share a similar sadly dark feeling where the MC is the only person who really cares and tries to save a bunch of 'magical' girls in trouble AND he also develops a romantic relationship with one of the girls.

Giant shape-shifting monsters have all but eliminated humanity. The only way to kill the monsters is by using a specific weapon. In Knights of Sidonia humans and one personified bear live together on the spaceship Sidonia. In SukaSuka it is a bunch of personified animals and one human live together on floating islands above Earth. There are immortal characters in both series. Both shows have political commentary in them.

I think this one almost explains itself if you've seen one or the other. Both have a lot of female character roles of various personalities and elements of romance. Shuumatsu is definitely the darker / more serious of the two although.

Essentially the same premise. Male MC takes care of young children. If you watched one, you'd love the other!

Both animated series about children who are forced to live alone. They were not protected by anyone. In SukaSuka they are group of little girls, in LNM - one little girl. Young heroes, Willem in SukaSuka and Yotaro in LNM, decide that by all means will protect innocent children.

It's surprising to see that this comparison hasn't been made already. Both of these two anime present a similar mood, though the similarity in terms of genre and themes only begin to appear after around the 20th episode in Utawarerumono (hope I'm not spoiling too much). Both anime have a strong sense of mystery, and focus indirectly on world building, approaching the plot from a character-development point of view. Both are set in post apocalyptic fantasy worlds, where both worlds don't feel post apocalyptic, and both have plenty of humanoid characters as well.

Both Shuumatsu Nani and Violet Evergarden take place after a major worldwide conflict, featuring a protagonist who was once an infamous combatant become someone who has to adapt to life in a new fantasy world that they once could have never imagined. Shuumatsu is different in that it continues the theme of conflict well after the protagonist's initial war story has ended. Both are a great watch in my opinion with lots of feels.

Call me weird but I think these 2 are quite similar in some ways. Both has Sci-fi settings and is talking about the hardships of Military and political life, both main characters have different motives in joining but regardless, the army was not their first choice.
