Similar themes of loneliness, isolation and escapism. Evangelion is also quite heavily inspired by Ultra series and tokusatsu in general. Gridman's directorial style is also quite reminiscent of Anno's in a lot of situations.

An homage and a love letter to tokusatsu, complete with the tropes we all know and love, a delightful cast of characters, and a story that goes in a direction you wouldn't expect.

Both are character focused action mecha series! Gridman has more slow, methodical character drama with big action scenes in the second half of each episode. Planet With has some character drama as well but, is more focused on it's themes and allowing the story to expand with psychic mecha battles throughout the series.

both have a similar feeling with both being reboots of a series. both have a transforming gimmick.

Both are shows with action scenes that revolve around combining robots, hot-blooded action and flashy finishing attacks. Also, SSSS.Gridman constantly homages the Brave series: the mecha franchise where Gaogaigar comes from.

Although both animes have a different conception and setting, only one thing is associated with them — robots and the main character who has some problems with " health". Besides it, he is surrounded by beautiful girls who fall in love with him, or not.

Both are more lighthearted mecha series than its contemporaries and have MC's that both have a vague memory. Both MC's are also thrown into a world where they have to fight off the opposing faction in super giant robot battles that leave minimal damage to the actual planet. Both also have a mostly teenage cast.

They're both Trigger shows that don't have quite the usual Trigger feel, but still very good overall animations. Both also involve giant mechas. Darling in the FranXX is more romance / drama based, focusing on the characterization of the main cast and their journey to better understanding their current world as well as to adulthood. SSSS Gridman, on the other hand, seems to aim for surrealism and mystery (though not in an ideal way). It also does try to characterize the cast, but to a lesser degree.

SSSS.Gridman reminded me of Bleach when I was first watching the show. Gridman and Bleach both share a similar action/slice of life balance to each episode. Each episode there is good character building and also plenty of action/flighting scenes. The characters in Gridman also reminded me of those in Bleach, the side characters mostly, they aren't necessarily human and have a supernatural kind of twist. If you enjoyed Bleach and want to try something a little different I would recommend SSSS.Gridman.

First of all, both are the revival of a series from the past for a new audience. With that said, Gatchaman Crowds and SSSS.Gridman have similar atmosphere and artwork, likable characters and share some tropes.

Both shows seems to be homages to classic tokusatsu films/series. Both feature a huge kaiju(s) that needs to be defeated by the protagonist and co. Gridman has significantly less action and seems to rely on giving a surreal or mystery feel to the show. The CG designs are notably much cleaner, but very wonky in terms of movement. The Godzilla Netflix films are more action-oriented and set up a post apocalypse sci fi setting. The films are all "CG-fied" but have significantly better flow in terms of movement.
