Although they are different types of stories, the two series share an aesthetic (childish designs that contrast with their world). Both also feature superb world-building, nice art direction, and beautiful music that manage to whisk you to another world completely. So if atmospheric world-building is your jam, definitely watch both!

Both are about travelling a fairly bleak and imperfect world, stopping only briefly before moving on. Similar moods and themes throughout, exploring lots of varied philosophical topics, especially mortality and what it means to truly live. These are two of the best of this genre; slow paced and intentional, focusing on things just long enough to keep you interested before moving to the next destination. The characters are also perhaps the best travelling companions you could ask for.

Gakkougrurashi and Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoukou share a similar setting, they're are both post-apocalyptic. Gakkougurashi relies on bright colors and comedy with a splash of psychological drama. Where Shoujo Shuumtasu Ryouko might seem a lot slower paced with less dialogue but both shows do give off a similar vibe of eerie discomfort with moe style. If you've seen one I would recommend the other for a similar setting and overall world feel.

Girl's Last Tour and Kemurikusa take place in a very similar setting, a gray, post-apocalyptic, desolate, and very far into the future wasteland of sorts. If you are interested in mysterious landscape that makes you curious to see what could happen next I would highly recommend both shows.

Both shows have a similar mood of comfort but also an unknown danger in the distance. They both have characters that don't fully understand their surroundings and gradually learn more as they spend time in the world. Haibane Renmai is much more a story of personal discovery, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou is more about the world itself through the eyes of it's characters.

Both shows excel at exploring their worlds and how they function. Fantastic environmental storytelling throughout, and while the main characters may be quite different between the two shows, they are all very interested in the peculiar workings of the worlds they live in. While Mushishi has a focus on the supernatural world and trying to help those affected by it, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoukou has a focus on simply surviving and uncovering an unknown history. But both revolve strongly around the way these worlds operate. Very intriguing locations, similar washed-out color pallets, and main characters that spend most of their time wandering from place to place.

The biggest similarity here is the world. They are very bleak and grey and they feel as important as the main characters. Both focus on trying to understand something about the past history of the world and simply trying to survive in hostile conditions.

I actually watched Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita a few months ago, but when I finished Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou I felt like it gave off kind of the same feeling. You know, when everyone look happy and take life as it comes there's this omnipresent melancholic feeling that never really disappears. The characters are the last people on earth, they know it, but they still manage to overcome this feeling and live their life with a sincere smile, and I find it both really sad and heartwarming. Oh, and the op and ed of both shows are absolute dope by the way.

Understanding and treasuring lives of living things as well as non-living things. These two journeys show us how we shouldn't take things for granted and how precious things will become which we only realized it when we are desiring it. You should walk with the protagonist(s) and observe their slow-paced journey. Each episode is carefully pieced and progressed to arrive at a final 'destination'. They have a lot of similarities although in a different world concept, so take your time and enjoy the two shows.

Both are slice of life shows following the lives of two pairs of adorable characters. They both excel in environmental storytelling and world building, despite having vastly different moods. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou is much darker in tone, carrying lots of hidden meaning and environmental story details that slowly build into a greater understanding of the world and it's history. It focuses more on the individual relationships between the main characters, as they are [mostly] the only characters in the show. Hakumei to Mikochi is much lighter and fluffier, but still shows a strong level of detail in it's world and how it's societies function. It  read more

The curtains fall on humanity and the players are beckoned off the stage. However, despite this, life continues on. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou And Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou are both Slice of Life series that take place after the apocalypse (for lack of a better word). Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou follows two young girls as they travel through the remnants of a destroyed city while Yokohama Kaidashi Kikuo is about the everyday life of a robot named Alpha. Both series have an episodic narrative structure and have a deep connection to the "Mono no Aware" style that Japanese fiction is known for. Both Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou and Yokohama Kidaishi  read more

The story centers around two girls with almost opposite personalities. This makes their interactions and journey together interesting and fun to watch. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou does cover much heavier themes (philosophical) than Urasekai Picnic, however. Urasekai Picnic is a different genre but both have interesting plots that once you start you have to finish!

Both are about 2 people going together on a journey. Both have great and very interesting characters and the story in both is very entertaining. Both seem lighthearted but have some dark parts in them. Both are amazing to watch.

Both focus on a slow look at a very detailed world from the eyes of children. While both worlds and moods are vastly different, the way these children interact with and learn from the world are quite similar. One is just a survival situation while the other is much more lighthearted.

These two are NOT similar. However if you like one then you will probably like the other, they have some parallel points in enjoyment; the atmospheric and half-minimalistic tone, light social commentary, professionally crafted and unanimelike shots and carefully constructed, immersive dialogue. Both look good too. If SSR is Slowdive, HnK is Sigur Ros.

Both involves shoujo whom were out on a journey of discovery, both also have that discovery which would prove to be an uncertainty.  
report Recommended by Whoahoho
both have very minimal casts, no real stories behind them and instead focus more on art work and world building of post-apocalyptic fantasy worlds. 
report Recommended by nordicyandere
These two anime have pretty deep meanings behind them. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou/Girls Last Tour focuses more on the dark side of humanity, most of the time being the effects of wars to us humans, while Konohana Kitan focus more time in telling us more about the beauty in humanity. Both anime can be pretty cute and emotional at times. The art and animation in both series is also top-notch.

I find both shows similar in terms of exploring the wastelands, going upwards looking for clues as to what happened, as well as the encounters they made in every floor they visit.

Huge uninhabitant city/world that was build way in the past. This anime is way more calm but if you enjoy just the dystopic feeling this anime might be something for you.

Both series tell us about a group of girls exploring the vast post-apocalyptic world. After the world end, the landscape changed significantly, and unknown creatures and the rusty remnants of the previous civilization now inhabit the world. 
report Recommended by kernel1024
Both series are set in a world after civilisation has ended, however, despite the end of civilisation across the world, there are some beauties and wonders within the world that are hidden and worth living for, despite the apocalypse. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoko approaches this in a more light hearted manner, with Yuri and Chito having their unbreakable bond to keep them going and loving the world that they once knew. Planetarian is a much darker experience, with Yumemi clinging onto what she learnt for all the time that she has lived for, and the Junker discovering this beauty that Yumemi was a part of for many years.

The similarities here are quite obvious: well designed post-apocalyptic settings, mysterious circumstances, and pairs of main characters that simply want to understand the worlds they live in. Cruel and cold worlds filled with little sparks of hope. Both shows have similar messages and could honestly take place in the same universe.

Both are set in apocalyptic settings, Shinsekai Yori is just further past the destruction. They focus on children learning about the world and gradually uncovering it's mysteries. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoukou focuses much more on the day to day life of the main characters, and Shinsekai Yori is a bit more action-focused, but both contain wonderful settings and captivating stories.

Both are based on slice of life in a post apocalyptic world. Both have a dark undertone but there is no forced drama. The characters make an effort not to die of hunger or misery but they do not constantly lament their situation, they have grown up in that world and they face it the best they can. Both have a component that is transparent to the characters but not the viewer, they grew up in that world and do not understand the reason for many things or what the pre-apocalyptic organization was like. It brings an interesting philosophical nuance to the viewer about what we live  read more

Flip Flappers and Shoujo Shuumtasu Ryoukou share a similar feeling when you're watching each show. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryouko is set in a post-apocalypic setting, where Flip Flappers is set in many settings of different realms. Both shows are very sci-fi and share the element of curiosity and adventure. The setting makes the viewer want to know more about the enviornment and what might happen next as each show gives off an almost uncomfortable vibe. If you've seen one I would recommend the other for a similar vibe and interesting landscaping and design.

what would a story look like without fighting, without drama, just people doing their everyday life? GLT and ACCA are just like that, just the main characters traveling around their won world, experiencing the scenery and atmosphere

I have always found 86 and Girls' Last Tour to be pretty much, more or less the same thing. Both 86 and GLT follow characters situated in an unfortunate reality. Trying to make out with what they can, usually through wholesome moments. The only difference the two share is how they go around presenting such themes, with 86 taking an incredibly dark route full of fighting and death to the relaxing, but depressing mood GLT brings forward. Imo, 86 doesn't do too well in presenting these themes, which makes it more like GLT in that aspect of it being depressing rather than actually dark. But that  read more

Both animes have very similar vibes: mysterious and post-apocalyptic future, snow everywhere, few humans, remnants of machines that suggest that there was a technological war, most of the animals extinct or on the verge of extinction. And both animes have a relatively slow passing. Another point in common is that both deal with some fairly philosophical issues. Anyway, Wolf's Rain has many more characters, more action, and a more complex story.

When I started watching "Wasteful Days of High School Girls" (WD), I was immediately struck by the similarity in sound design to "Girls' Last Tour" (GLT) - which, for me, contributes heavily to the feel of a show. The dynamic amongst the main character had some similarities as well, with a standard funny-man/straight-man comedy setup. GLT is much darker compared to WD, which is a more standard slice of life, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend GLT for everyone. However, it is worth considering.

Relaxing to watch, with good characters and a "mysterious" world. It also has good comedy. Both also have non-standard character designs, which is great.

Calm, just calm with few conflicts, almost impossible to go wrong. While Shoujo Shuumatsu is the daily life of two little girls surviving in the World, Sketchbook is literally episodes where almost nothing happens and is extremely relaxing. Cute girls with a relaxing vibe. Two works to watch without worry because not much happens. Both also have good comedy. Maybe anime should be that, not trying to be too much and failing miserably, but rather having a few things happen and getting basically everything it does right.

Both shows involve girls as main characters who are survivng in the post-apocalyptic environment, moving around from place to place within a single city. The vibes are very different, though.

In universal view,one is 'healing',one is 'crazy'. However,the escape is same. To find a shelter away from the more absurd and grotesque 'real world. The persistence is same.Beholding own belief,they both dare explore and fight towards unknown fogs till death,rather than withering or merging in that 'real world'. Yeah,one is 'injustice' and 'bloody',one is for 'humankind' and 'history'. Does those moral concepts really matter? When they are just some debris form the glorious asshole of the doctrine from the 'real world'. Cherish these AUTHENTIC odysseys which reveal the private selves among us.

Despite having a lot of differences from plot elements to setting genre to characters quantity and theme, both shows have a really cozy, relaxing feel to them. Grimgar juxtapose the relaxing moments with high tension moments, making our appreciation for both highten While Girls Last Tour is heart-warming through out the whole show This feeling is intensified by both shows' detailed and breath-taking setting, emotionally complimentary soundtracks and charming character interactions.

Both have strong elements of the SOL genre, even though they are set in a place that has a dark story. The interacting characters where they live can give a cheerful impression in carrying out daily activities and have complementary friendships. Although there are considerable differences in story setting, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou is set in post-apocalyptic setting while Shadow House is set in steam era.

Both feature cute girls in existential situations, though while Zombieland Saga is usually more light-hearted and has a very over-the-top sense of humor, Girls Last Tour is...somber, and philosophical. It gives you time to consider things, for them to really sink in, and it makes good use of that.

Both are set in a world that you don't know much about, with minimal world-building (in a good way) and not a lot of characters. Both have a very relaxed / laid-back tone, and both get very serious at times. Tsumiki no Ie is a lot more densely packed than Girls' Last Tour, but beyond that difference I think these two shows feel quite similarly.

Both are about surviving in a world after the destruction of modern civilization. Nausicaä is much more of a sci-fi/fantasy story, though both do contain elements of this. They feature very distinct lead characters that choose to embrace the way of the world they live in, but they have a curiosity about what happened before their time. They both have a lot to say about humanity, the environment, and the ways that civilization as we know it can be flawed. The worlds themselves are very much characters here.

Animes that consist on a group of girls surviving day-to-day in the hostilities of their environments which are wasted lands, abandoned factories, desert islands. In Girls' Last Tour is much more dramatic since the civilization has collapsed there and Chito and Yuu are almost the last two persons still alive, while in Are You Lost? has more comedy, included some tutorials for camping, and also a small dose of ecchi. Both series have the straight-woman, Chito and Homare in Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou and Sounan Desu ka? respectively; and the clumsy girl(s), Yuuri, and Asuka, Mutsu and Shion in SSR and SDK respectively.

Both provide a sampler plate of entry-level philosophy across a series of short stories tied into a bigger journey.
