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

Boy gets appointed to work with a cute artificial human girl.
They fall in love with each other.
He soon discovers, she has not much more time left in this world.

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 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.

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

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.

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.

There's something that I can't put my finger on it, they seem really similar. Madoka is darker and explores psychology more. Art feels similar in some scenes as well.

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

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

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 !

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  read more

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.

Essentially the same premise. Male MC takes care of young children. If you watched one, you'd love the other!  
report Recommended by thecrimsonpact
the casts of characters in both shows is similar.  
report Recommended by MisterTrantastic
Though the settings are quite different, both series ask similar questions and handle a main romantic relationship well.  
report Recommended by MisterTrantastic
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. 
report Recommended by Yukariki
- 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.

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 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" 
report Recommended by Markdoka
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.  
report Recommended by Natetheegraet
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. 
report Recommended by tehstarr
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.

While the settings are drastically different, there is a very similar general tone to each story. The protagonist in both start out more or less empty inside and try to close their heart away from the world. They both deal with their problems in a similar manner at the start as well. Both also have a similar tendency to sprinkle in more lighthearted slice of life/comedy moments into the show occasionally as well. 3-Gatsu no Lion does that more often than SukaSuka admittedly.

-Similar tone
-Similar protagonists (not exactly the same)
-Very different story and setting
