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.

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.

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.

- using mecha surface to make character driven show about their internal struggles - main characters face similar developement, to not spoil that much - both were passion projects with throwback to mecha classics of the past

Both of the story is about robot, the tengen toppa gurren lagann is fighting another robot, and the Gridman is fighting monster and robot but mostly monster, so gridman is similar with a TV series called "ultraman"

Two modern 'sequels' that aren't supposed to be sequels of older franchises. Anyone who enjoys the foggy, dreamlike atmosphere of Gridman might find something similar in Jeeg, where the fog is a little thicker. Expect kaiju fights and oldschool hotblooded action.

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.

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

Innovative modern staples animes of their respective genders, which includes signifcant slice of life and comedy aspects to the series. SSSS.Gridman is a mecha anime that explore the intricate relationships of the main characters with their environment and their enemies. While the comedy is more subdued than in YuYuYu, it clearly dwells more into the psychedelic Neon Genesis paraphernalia. Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is a more balanced mix of extreme drama and magical girl suffering with overt slice of life issues, which augments even more the despair of the Club girls. Both also have a red haired MC, but Yuuna is cheerful and Yuuta is skeptical;  read more

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. 
report Recommended by Cold_Raw
Oppressive atmosphere, sparse music and extremely surreal setpieces. Both anime's worlds and casts spring from the mental state of the characters, reflecting their thoughts and thus essentially making both shows very detailed character studies.

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.

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.

if you liked deep plot with supernatural touch, you will like both.

you could say they are mitamedoushi, one of a kind. both anime has mecha action and deep plot in it. some evangelist say gridman copied evangelion, while new weebs said its the other way around. but in my opinion, they are both original.

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.

What if God was a high school student with destructive tendencies if left unchecked. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya tells the story of the SOS Brigade valiantly providing entertainment to God so the world doesn't get destroyed out of boredom. SSSS.Gridman tells the story of the Gridman Alliance battling against God's self destructive loneliness. You might enjoy this series if you don't take it seriously.

a lot of people might not find much or even any similarities in the two anime. but for me, the anime that pops out first in my mind is either kill la kill or SSSS.Gridman. of course, gridman and kill la kill directed by amemiya sensei is the thing. but gridman eventually shows itself to include a villain with twisted personality which psychologically has the same feeling with Symphogear. The style and manual drawing which is harder to find these days especially in the fighting part also resemble each other.

of you liked the hack and slash and henka and gattai, you will definitely liked both. i dont know about the plot tho ;)

This might be far-fetched but watching SSSS.Gridman reminded me of Punch Line because for both I expected action and got very inteligent mystery. At first glance their plot seems very generic, shounen-oriented and normal but turns out to be much more inteligent and interesting. In both anime a boy finds himself in a puzzling situation and has to save the world. Both have high quality animation, with art that is a little bit unusual.

Overall SSSS.Gridman makes much more sense than FLCL but it shows tendencies of the same craziness and oversteps some borders that standart anime don't touch. Both have an inteligent plot, that is fun to analyse, talk about and read stuff into it. Both have high quality animation, that tends to be a little bit arty. The characters are teens, and there problems are handelt in an metaphoric way. Both have mecha and well done fights.

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.  
report Recommended by Creissonino
both are mecha shows about a digital world in which the protagonist has lost his previous memories.  
report Recommended by IgorSiemann
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.
