If you like any show directed by Ikuhara and want something similar, you have to watch another show by Ikuhara. This is because his anime isn't similar to anything else besides his own stuff. Mawaru Penguindrum is a surreal story of two boys doing his best to save the life of their little sister - full of metaphores, great animation and beautiful magical girl-like sequences. It's a story about destiny. Sarazanmai is a surreal story of three boys who are trying to keep connections with other people.

Bright, colourful, well-animated shows involving strange creatures (alien fish/Kappa) and a real love for their unique real-life setting (Enoshima/Asakusa). Personal but wacky stories about the feelings and friendship of their protagonists. Also they're both pretty gay.

Both are weird shows that always get you confused, nothing similar art or storywise, but the comedy and target audience feel like they should be the same.

Both shows are art house and strange premises with more depth the more you look into each respective series. The story itself of Yuri Kuma is not as engaging, though the symbolism and themes are presented in a similar way and have the same amount of depth. If you enjoy this show because of it's artsy story telling and visuals then you may also enjoy Yuri Kuma Arashi for the same things.

Both shows are Ikuhara type shows that are zany art house pieces, tons of symbolism, and flashy transformation sequences and battles. If you enjoy one, you'll probably enjoy the other!

They both have surreal art styles, lighthearted yet metaphorical plots that are open to interpretation, and characters with believable emotions and struggles. Also, a theme in both shows is learning to genuinely accept and express oneself.

Very bright and colourful and deals with Japanese mythology and quirky and weird animation and characters.

Both anime features Butts as their main element of their story, and takes a ridiculous premise in the most serious ways possible.
