Both of these Winter 2018 anime run primarily on small things being adorable. Both are light-hearted, sweet series that will make you go "Awww!" several times an episode, even if that's pretty much all they do.

Adorable slice-of-life comedies about taking care of little children.

Character driven comedy 
report Recommended by tatsuyo
Both involve a MC who is essentially raising a child that is not theirs Both give you a dose of warm happy feeling after watching Both involve cute kids (and not the lolicon-bait kind) If you like one, you will almost certainly like the other

Both feature parental figures in their teens Both have main characters with parents who have passed away Both feature kids in a daycare centre interacting and learning Both are overall pretty cute, funny and have some progression with other characters interjecting into the plot and developing Both are light hearted, slow paced and serious themes come appear occasionally

They are similar in love to brother And the brotherly interest of some of them The secondary characters are interesting And also the presence of custody The existence of the school and the fact that the hero is a secondary student ....... Their similarities are many

Similarities: Both are non-romance slice of life anime that involves kids. Differences: Poco's Udon World has fantasy elements, and focuses more on life decisions people make when they are in their thirties while Gakuen Babysitters is a realist anime with more comedy elements and romance.

Similarites: Both are slice of life anime related to taking care of kids. Differences: Amaama to Inazuma focuses more on cooking while Gakuen Babysitters is a school anime with a little romance.

Both have characters that became orphans and have to take care of children

> Cute small creatures doing cute things > Light hearted comedy > Few emotional moments > Similar art style/atmosphere If you're looking for something to cleanse your soul, watch the other one too

Both are powerful bittersweet tales about a character moving on from their parents deaths and learning the ropes of guardianship as they begin to take care of another. Gakuen Babysitters differs as the protagonist becomes the guardian of his younger brother and begins working as a babysitter for a school. While My Roommate is a Cat involves the protagonist looking after a pet cat. If you enjoyed the sweet, heartwarming environment one created you will likely enjoy the other as well.

Both have MCs taking care of a group of children, though in Gakuen Babysitters it's toddlers and in Barakamon it's 5-15 year olds. Both have a older brother dynamic between the MC and the children Both are overall light comedies with an occasional serious note  
report Recommended by Meg_Guzman
Both series are about children dealing with trauma, even though Gakuen babysitters is more in school activity I really recommend watching Kotaro lives alone. 
report Recommended by TheVirginMC
Honestly they both have really cutesy stuff. But this one (Beelzebub) has a very specific fluffy aesthetic. It's a lot more fluffy to be honest and it's cute in a different way but I still think they're similar. :))

My first thought when I watched Ore Monogatari was that it was a "happy" anime: it has a plot but it's mostly episodic, the main characters are incredibly nice people and seeing their interactions and struggles was as heartwarming as you can imagine. Well, that "happy" feeling was all over me again during every episode of Gakuen Babysitters: it does things a little differently, focusing more on family rather than a romantic relationship, but it was all there: a heartfelt warmth that could made me forget anything negative going around my head.

It is a happy-go-lucky slice-of-life with some nice jokes here and there. Clannad is by far more intelligent in his themes and is a lot more complex than this show ever wanted to be. It is not a masterpiece but is more interesting than the 12 episodes of this anime.

Both shows revolve around a bunch of little kids The characters are very alike, Boo is like Kotarou, nanny is like Kirin and Himawari is like Midori chan The kids cause trouble

If you liked the cuteness/wholesomeness side of maid dragon, you will definitely like garden babysitters. THE MOST WHOLESOME SHOW EVERR. It's fun to chill and watch and does NOT have some of the mature/ecchi themes maid dragon has.

Personally, I think that both Kobato and Gakuen Babysitters are series that share a common theme: Caring for young children. Both series have a duo of opposite personalities, but they progressively begin to get along better while usually taking care of small children in a daycare (in the case of Gakuen Babysitters, the daycare is located in the school). The pace of both series is usually calm and quiet. With very little conflict in general (that's because both series are Iyashikei) and mundane situations, but often touching. I also find the color palette very similar. Many pastel colors are usually used to give an atmosphere of calm and  read more

Both involve babies! Beelzebub is definitely more action packed and really jumps into the comedy aspect of things, but I can guarantee that if you love one you'll love the other.

This relatively invisible series is quite the gem. It follows a childcare worker in Tokyo on his many, many adventures with the children he looks over. Based on a real person’s tweets from earlier in 2012, apparently. It’s literal children say/do the darnedest things.

Both of these anime are really cute and funny 
report Recommended by Not_Muffin
Both anime have some small things that make it just adorable to watch. The both of them have some "kind of" sad part in their slice of life story that spice some things up. 
report Recommended by Neischen
Both involve babies! Uramichi Oniisan has more scenes that pours into the struggles of adulthood and how adults deal and revolve around the simplicity of the children.

Both of these anime have small things being adorable (Baby vs. ghost). They both are a sweet series that will make you go "Awww!" several times each episode, while still having emotional moments.

Small children. Must protect. Cute chemistry of kuudere/tsundere and a quietish character. Slice of life  
report Recommended by Kaguyachinchin
Both are shows about a guy in his late teens taking care of a kid that lost his/her parents. In Gakuen Babysitters the older brother takes care of his younger brother after the death of their parents, in If it's for my Daughter... an adventurer takes care of a devil girl he meets in the forest after her father dies. Also both shows are cute as hell and make a lot childfree people (like me) want to reconsider their reproductive choices.

Extremely similar art style and humour, almost identical highschool's club setting. Both a good laugh with cute looking characters and a lot of chill vibes with some lowkey, tearjerking drama. 
report Recommended by DYED
Both have toddler/children and are slice of life animes, however Daa!Daa!Daa! has aliens while Gakuen Babysitters are human based. Both are focused around the theme of "Family". 
report Recommended by DaiikonRadish
Both MCs have to take care of children/a little child. Both MCs share a sibling relationship with the child: one of them being blood-related to the child and the having a cousin type of relationship. Both MCs care greatly fore their charge. Both MCs have to take care of charge who have a tragic past: one of them having parents who died in a plane crash and the other having their father die and their mother leaving them to be cared for by distant relatives. However, Ashiteruzu Baby is also romanced based which is unlike Gakuen Babysitters.

- Both (generally) light hearted - Lots of fluff - Feel good - Adorable animation  
report Recommended by paluma
The Main Character lost his parents, and starts working at the house of his relatives. diffrence might be, the MC is not forced to do this, like here Ryuu. more likely he forces him self to do this, so he can live "properly". Without feeling "i live here for free".

If you enjoy the very rare Cute Guys Doing Cute Things trope in anime, then this recommendation is up your alley. Not only do we see young and cute boys partaking in activities considered traditionally as feminine, but you also get to see them grow closer to each other as of their interest and involvement in said activities.

Both show shows the power of friendship. Between two anime, we can see how pure child heart.
