If you enjoyed watching "Imouto sae Ireba Ii.?", you will be able to enjoy "Eromanga-sensei" in a similar capacity as both shows share the similar premise of Creators' Day-to-Day Life with vibrant Look & Feel, Situational Comedy, and excellent visuals to feast your eyes upon.

These two anime discuss the world of creators, wrapped in a comedy with some eccentric characters. Both involved drama, friendship and romance that stemmed from unspoken rivalry. They have similar message and atmosphere, but Sakurasou feels more serious compared to the more comedic ImoSae.

- Both has main character with strange obsession (in Mangaka-san MC is obsessed with panties, in Imouto - he loves little sisters) - MstAs is about mangaka and his friends and IsIi is about novelist and his friends - Both are pretty lewd but in the funny way - You can expect fanservice which is not taken seriously from both

Both shows involve a lot of similar comedy tropes and have a similar approach to humor/ecchi gags. The settings are different but I'd imagine that if you like one you'll probably like the other.

Both are comedies about light novelists who have obsessions with older brother-younger sister relationships. 
report Recommended by delta5
Occasionally sentimental comedies revolving around anime, manga, and light novels as a profession. Many aspects of the industry are explored thoroughly, such as "generic" light novels and their adaptations still being born from a place of passion for the medium, and what it takes to go from being a consumer to a creator.

Anime where the characters use pencil, paper, and friendship to progress through dialogue and participate in career or life

If you liked AnimeGataris, surely I recommend Imouto Sae Ireba II, both are great animes, and that some proposals a little bit alike in some points.

Are you a person who works every day? Do you wish to see someone else relate to how you're feeling? Are you just like everyone else wishing to become a successful person in the future? Are you may or may not be familiar with the term "slice of life"? Then these 2 works are just for you. The reason I made this recommendations is simple: Jobs. Jobs aren't something we actually enjoy, but they are, in the grand of scheme of things, something we have to do to survive. To earn, to eat, and to continue living with a roof on our head. But.. that doesn't mean  read more

Both the Ghost Stories Dub and A Sister's All You Need both have infamously offensive comedy (scenes) that will make you either immediately drop or laugh out loud! Although some may disagree, both shows are self-aware enough to not condone their actions/dialogue and the characters sometimes get punished for it. Although seemingly degenerate, each show have parody themes that mock stereotypes by stereotyping the offenders. Creative and subversive.

Both are stories that are built completely around unique colourful characters. As the story progresses in both, you see how the cast changes and adapts to the situations they find themselves in.  
report Recommended by EvilEyeIsHere
Both animes relate to manga creation and involve romance. Both are extremely funny and also heartwarming at times. If you enjoy rom coms with amazing an amazing character cast these are the aniimes for you

I loved both of these anime series, and they are kinda similar. In both stories, there is a writer boy who lives alone and tries to write his next short novel. and they both trying to find a way to give them a push to write their story. in Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue, there is a cat that helps him get himself together, and the other ones, his friends give him the power. hope you like it.

Love the never ending humor of Aho Girl? Then this show is right up your ally, with constant profane jokes the comedy never ends. Both shows are so stupid to the point that they are great.

Telling daily life of creators where they struggling with work and relationship problem. although with a little more serious plot development. 
report Recommended by gahara31
Toradora & Imouto sae both contain the same "Scrubs" - style formula (the irl comedy, occasional emotional doctors show). Namely, they're a) character driven b) part 1 of episode of characters interacting/doing trivial things c) part 2 of episode containing the "feels" / life lesson. a large lesson that is constantly revisited is that of "taking something for granted" whether it be a talent, a personality, a relationship, etc. consequently, each of these shows also delves into when those characters does take something for granted and how it affects the rest of the cast.

Telling daily life of creators and their relationship. with more harem and more dense MC.

Both slice of life anime (though Imosae is more lewd) feature the consumption of alcoholic beverages (which have product placements) as part of the plot.
