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.

Both take place in post apocalyptic versions of modern earth, and hints and scattered throughout the show as to how humans used to live before the events of the anime

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.

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.

You will enjoy watching the two MCs traveling and discovering new places! Their everyday chatting, thoughts, fears and believes...

Small groups of people travelling a desolate and destroyed world nearly entirely devoid of any life. They both feature very dark imagery and themes, but laced with cutesy characters that contrast with these themes wonderfully. The worlds themselves are treated as characters here, and are a treat to explore. Bundle that with superb music and memorable character building and you've got two of the finest post-apocalyptic stories out there. Just be aware of Kemurikusas occasionally lackluster animation.

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Both involves shoujo whom were out on a journey of discovery, both also have that discovery which would prove to be an uncertainty.

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. 
report Recommended by cimba007
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.

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.

Both are the story at the end of the world.. While one is in realistic side and another is in fantasy side, you can feel the same atmosphere like solemnness in both animes..

The aimless travels of two uncomplicated people within the ruins of human civilization, finding joy in simple discoveries and products of a long lost culture, and exploring how the few remaining people find reasons to live in a desolate world.

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.

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 are iyashikei with deeper messages. Not much goes on goes on in them and they're both episodic, slice of life shows. They have a similar calm atmosphere, though Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou is overall bleaker.

Chito and Yuuri from Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou reminds me Chika and Miu from Ichigo Mashimaro.

Although they may differ in many ways (colours, pace, simlplicity), these two shows ask serious existential questions about human condition in a posthuman reality.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar as an isekai have the narrative that revolves around the same pillars as Girls' Last Tour: Relatable Characters and Positive Philosophical Themes - Girls' Last Tour believe in the beauty and happiness of simplicity - While Grimgar believes in the meaning of struggles and grieve, which both leads to growth Both shows have breathtaking soundtrack and art, Grimgar having an action aspect to it and also a romance subplot, something Girls' Last Tour doesn't have. The fights aren't flashy but it is used to tell the audience a lot about the characters, settings and their enemies. The romance remains open-ended since the LN  read more

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.

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.

Cute girls wander through the ashes of a mysterious civilization? Odd, uncanny and weird atmosphere? Deep and ambigous? Well, why not?

Both shows are similarly built in abstract worlds that pull you in at first glance. They grasp the feel of unimaginable places, drawings, and...well...imagination. With unpredictably hilarious characters, I believe both shows can grasp your heart in many ways.

- cute artstyle which contrasts the more heavy-handed themes - occasional sense of melancholy - you feel the progress of time which gives a kind of "coming of age"-vibe i would say - female lead

Both are post-apo atmospheric anime that go full SOL and leave the story in the background. The notable difference is SSR is more relaxing and cute with high production values, while NieA is more a gag oriented budget anime.

-Both have the same sad-moody hopeless feel atmosphere to them -Both have futuristic weird sci-fi settings where humanity has gone in a pretty sad direction on a whole -There's this constant feeling that things won't really get any better, there isn't any hope left for humanity -Both have very unique settings that contrast with the cute character designs of the characters, it creates a very unique experience for both -Both are kind of episodic, with the adventure continuing as the series makes progress, with some connected story bits in there as well

These two anime has dark philosophical meaning behind them. Both about destroying civilization. Only difference is one is already destroyed and the other one is the path to salvation.

Both have a moe aesthetic with child like designs and big eyes. And in these two there is a gray tone in the plot, in Alien 9 the psychological topic and In SSR the cyberpunk background. Both have a existencial tone in the development.

Loli and World War stuff, way less cute but more epic.

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 have very minimal casts, no real stories behind them and instead focus more on art work and world building of post-apocalyptic fantasy worlds.

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.

If you wished that Shelter was a feature length anime, check out Girl's Last Tour. While it has a darker backdrop, it has bright moments as the characters make the most of a post apocalyptic world.

Both series are very atmospheric with beautiful and unique locations. They both have a very laid back tone, and they both focus on cute girls exploring their environments, albeit one as guides and one as wanderers.
