These two anime are similar because they both parodies on anime. But in Akiba's Trip The Animation, it's more on the anime culture in Akiba. They also joke around with cliches in anime.

Both series are about "Anime" Both have a lot of easter eggs and references to other anime Animegataris is about a group of students creating Anime research club Pastel Memories is about a group of girls saving literal Anime/Manga/Light Novel world from viruses

Both highlight Otaku culture and make references towards other anime

Even though these two anime didn't have the same goal at all, with one being a reverse harem with the main female that ships them together, and the other building a steady and official anime club, they have similar points. - They're both made to be lighthearted and funny - The references of other anime are present in both - The word anime itself is mentioned often in both - They both have that one episode where the main characters go to an anime convention - They have at least one character that doesn't know what's going on most of the time

Both are shows about a club in highschool . In both shows they have to deal with the student council so that they do not dismantle their club.

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.

Anime production, in-depth! showing deep production of how anime made, by students. While Animegataris is messier and comedy focused, but Eizouken is more of a serious matter on how anime production works.

Both shows primarily focus on otaku culture but Animegataris takes the pg-13/mainstream approach to this while Genshiken takes the more adult approach. I feel as if Genshiken has the heart that Animegataris lacks because the latter exists only to shoehorn references.

Both will satisfy anyone's taste for meta-jokes. The power of otaku's love of anime can do incredible things, and for those who actually have a unironic love of anime may find common ground with these characters (and the creators).

Both of these anime parody classic anime and otaku culture while also being a love letter to the whole medium and culture. Animegataris focuses more on the love of anime and how fun it can be to enjoy and share it with others and dives a bit into meta territory at times while Gyakuten Sekai no Denchi Shoujo plays it more straight, but still parodies and references classic mecha tropes and otaku stuff. Animegataris' cast has a bit more nuance to it, whereas most of Denchi Shoujo's characters are riffing on classic archetypes, either to poke fun at or change them up in interesting ways. Most importantly  read more

K-on! also has the theme of school club formation: the protagonists live the club at all times that are in school and we follow the daily life of them from the creation of the club, just like in Anime-Gataris.

Animegataris and Magical Girl Ore are satirical parodies of anime. In the case of MGO it's satirizing the magical girl genre of fantasy and shojo tropes while Animegataris parodies the medium in general. Both are comedic parodies of their respective genres and of the mediums.

We have a perfectly normal high school student who just wants to fit in and make friends. A chance meeting with the most beautiful and unapproachable girl in school leads to them being roped into an infamous school club. The ensuing shenanigans defy reason, but more importantly, they completely defy genre. It'll take a few episodes, but things definitely aren't as they seem.

- Both series are breaking the Fourth wall - Both series give other anime reference and memes The difference is Animegataris is about people talking about anime. Last Period is about people questing and rolling Gachas.
