Bunny Girl is basically a less verbose version of Bakemonogatari, complete with the anthology setup of the main guy, who comes off as a sarcastic prick but is secretly super nice, helps the waifu of the week come to terms with her social anxieties and hangups that supernaturally manifest in very literal ways. The snappy dialogue and instant chemistry between the leads makes both shows a very fun watch, but Bunny Girl is much more accessible.

Both shows are an adaptation of romcom LN and strongly focusing on dialogues, talk about intellectual chemistry between an antisocial MC and some ideal yamato nadeshiko girl. Moreover, as the main girls of both shows, Yukinon and Mai are almost the same as twin sisters.

similar concept about various phenomena linked to puberty syndrome, with great character development and romance. Both are recommended romcom anime. 
report Recommended by Juarez
Both series contain: -supernatural themes with philosophical notes -bunny girls -annoying clingy imouto to MC -male MC who is somewhat dull in contrast to the main female character who is popular in school -high school mystery/drama -mysteries that are supernatural in nature Overall both series are really interesting/unique from most series and both worth checking out imo.

While they might not be a whole lot alike, if you loved Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo and want more from the same people, then try Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai. The writer of the Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo LN also wrote the Seishun Buta Yarou LN series.

I initially went into both of these shows thinking they would be generic high school harems with some supernatural shenanigans thrown in, but ended up being surprised by how well these shows executed their premises with engaging interactions and solid characterizations through supernatural phenomena. While Yamada-kun does have the harem tag, it's really as much of a harem as Bunny Girl Senpai is with the protagonists only being interested in the female leads, who are quick to see through any misunderstandings which could potentially bog down the plot.

- Abnormal experiences with supernatural powers/effects - Investiguate and find solutions to solve the problems caused by the powers - Characters with "mechanical" personalities and dialogues - Romance between the two MC 
report Recommended by Titadou
About a guy who goes around helping other people with their supernatural problems. Not as drama heavy as clannad but it gives off the same vibe.  
report Recommended by Kittanne
Having a supernatural ability may not be as advantageous as one might think and can lead to severe issues in the person's life. The series feature supernatural phenomenons taking place around teenagers. Both main characters end up helping others affected by these abnormalities but may eventually need help with their own situation as well. 
report Recommended by Sande
The first 3 episodes of Bunny Girl Senpai is simply an upgrade to your name; both series are about supernatural phenomenons as well as losing memory and forgetting about someone you love.

-Both Deal with some sort of syndrome some experience in adolescence -Both Mc Girls are ''odd'' -Both Focus on Romance/Comedy  
report Recommended by L1quid666
SIMILARITIES: -MCs are doing "quests" in order to achieve something from various girls. -These various girls are lovable. -MCs have a similar characteristic: too straightforward to the point of no delicacy -both animes have drama, comedy and high school elements I'm wondering why hasn't anyone pointed this out.

Both show show us highschool romance with main characters who have the same exact personnalities

There are some similarities felt between the two, but that might be because the writer or the Seishun Buta Yarou LN series also did the script for Just Because!

Similar MCs with the same perception of the world around them. 
report Recommended by AnimeFreak213
Both MC's have similar situation, they are the only one that can see girl. In AnoHana girl is dead and in Bunny girl is forgotten by society. Both series are emotional rollercoasters and they guarantee that you will ship some couples and kept fingers crossed for "good things to happen". 
report Recommended by junmisugi
At the very least, the first arc is almost identically constructed. But I expect more similarities. 
report Recommended by Lanz
Compared to In/Spectre, has a bit less dialogue-based interactions. In bunny girl, it is a bit more with scientific concepts, whereas this is more on hypothetical instancess, deductions, and inferences. There is some good Rom-com with both shows too.  
report Recommended by RezokYTB
Both shows are very well-done romances with great chemistry between their characters, set in high school settings. Toradora! is a more comedic take grounded entirely in the real world, while Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is more dramatic and has a paranormal edge to it. 
report Recommended by TevishSzat
-Both have great production quality in not only visual aspects but sounds too -Both are comedic but also tell heartwarming stories (though Hinamatsuri is more on the comedic side) -Both animes tell their stories through the characters, where character development plays a big part -You can tell that these two animes are more like passion projects, where it seems like a lot of effort and care has been placed to the creation. -The two animes are a must watch and probably the biggest surprises of 2018. DON'T SLEEP ON THESE!

Similar themes revolving around acknowledgment dictating existence and memory loss threatening the relationship between the MC and their object of affection. Seishun is a little more mature and romance-centric, while Noragami has a strong fantasy element and incorporates the romance a little more subtly. Both are amazing Animes worth binging.

Story isn't similar to Clannad, but when I watched Bunny Girl Senpai I got similar felling I had when watching Clannad. Similarities are great story, comedy, romance and generally it's really enjoyable to watch. Sakuta (one of the main characters) also reminded me a lot to Tomoya.

Both anime have lovable protagonists that are realistic. Tsurezure children mainly is comedy and focuses on the relationships of several characters. Bunny girl senpai focuses on strange phenomenons and the characters secrets and lifestyles. Both anime are enjoyable.

This may seem like a stretch, but both series have a lazy, low-voiced, but very funny main character. This main character ends up driving the majority of the humor in both series. Plus, there are some perverted jokes in both series ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).

Only MC and few other characters can see the girl Both based on school settings Main girl as senior (for Tasogare Otome x Amnesia it's kind of a grey area she is a ghost) main characters grows closer fast main girl characters behaviour have so many similarities Main mean of communication to the outside world through MC

- both are have a girl that no one can see her axcept the boy who the only one can see her - both have the same settings that takes place in school - both are supernatural anime the main difference is this anime is more like a romance anime than another is more like an horror anime

These anime's both have a similar story. The two characters that connect with one another is Tada Banri and Sakurajima Mai. If you are looking for an anime that has a similar story I would go with Golden Time

Both have nonsense science derived from real theories. Really Good Character Writing And Dialogues. Even tho we do not have Mai Sakurajima In YUNO, the protagonist is very much like Sakuta. A Rascal. Bunny Girl's Better But Give YUNO a shot as well.

Similar yet different anime. Both successfully and effectively convey their message and philosophy to the readers though they are totally different genres. NGE, however, goes further in character development and easter eggs but they both well question human relationships.

Both of these shows handle themes of puberty and overcoming the struggles of entering adulthood in very mature and unique ways.  
report Recommended by JoeKr10
Both of these shows are of romance genre with a hint of humour. Though I admit that "Kaguya-sama..." is more of a romantic comedy, but it as well has moments when drama kicks in. Generally speaking, if you're a fan of romance with a hint of comedy and drama, these shows are perfect for you.

Don't seem related at first, but enjoyed them for similar reasons. Both have a similar style of quick, cynical humour and clever writing, with Bunny girl senpai providing a more coherent story with a bigger emotional pay off. A good gateway anime before more dialouge heavy shows like March comes in like a lion and the Monogatari series.

!!I'll try to leave as much spoilers as possible..!! Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai depicts a story in which the main character experiences the 'Puberty Syndrome', where supernatural phenomenons kept occurring around himself and his friends where subconscious thoughts and wishes started turning into reality. The anime also illustrates a very beautiful and emotional love story between Sakuta Azusagawa and Mai Sakurajima. Similarly to Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai, Angel Beats portrays Otonashi, a high school student who doesn't remember how he died or how he lived. He wakes up in Afterlife High School where  read more

I can't recommend both of these series enough. Our main characters go around solving the various anomalies in their towns. Koyomi, Sakuta, and Kaiki are all inspiring human beings. And no joke, the tropes of Bunny Girl Senpai as the quantum mechanics and Monogatari as the philosophy courses of anime are deadly accurate. Your world view will be shifted by these shows, and for anyone looking to stimulate their brain, both are fantastic watches.

Loners offering help. The Quintessential Quintuplets and Bunny Girl Senpai feature loner MCs Fuutarou and Sakuta respectively, in which, they offer support to the different heroines they are situated with. Bunny Girl Senpai uses outcast Sakuta and gives him different social problems of heroines in the form of the supernatural to try and solve. Quintessential Quintuplets is less drastic in that Fuutarou only needs to play the tutor for the Nakano sisters in hopes that they pass until graduation. Both anime are good rom-coms in a school setting with Bunny Girl Senpai being supernatural and dramatic, whilst Quintessential Quintuplets offers harem.

The male MCs in both anime are calm and methodical in their mannerism. They solve mysteries and appear to always be able to think ahead of any situation. If you enjoy anime where the MCs use strategy and persuasion to solve mysterious happenings, then you will likely like both of these anime.

It is an attractive series, it manages to conquer you in the first chapter with all the supernatural things that happen, it manages a lot of your curiosity and pretends to feed very well basic concepts such as the world that surrounds us, which is reality, and as it really is interpreted and everything from very simple quantum concepts, applied to electrons... we can see the world, but those that we do not see in it, it is not visible to our eyes... without a doubt, Chitanda would be increasing her curiously curious xD, about all the strange things that happen in Seishun Buta Yarou,  read more

The appeal of both series come from the back-and-forth dialogues between the main couple. Both are Romances with a twist. Spice and Wolf has a merchant trying to trade efficiently (it's much more fun than it sounds) and Bunny girl senpai has characters dealing with a fictional disease called puberty syndrome (it's much more fun than it sounds). Both are light novel adaptations.

Multiple girls have their own problems with whom the protagonist helps out in a ''magical'' way  
report Recommended by Interneturk
These shows are very, very similar. They talk about strange phenomena that nobody can really explain (the spit in NKX, puberty syndrome in SEIBU). The main couples are similar although Sakuta and Mai are more calloused that Urabe and Akira, not so innocent. School plays a large part in both shows, as it sets the background and atmosphere while also serving to better explain the relationships the characters have. These are both excellent mystery romances that are definitely worth your time.

MC saves cute girls from a certain supernatural event and they build their relations with each other. Bunny Girl focuses more on the romance aspect while Little Busters on the friendship aspect. MC is snarky in the first one while the MC on the second is plain nice. The plot in Bunny Girl is better but the ''feels'' are there for both anime.

concept is same as in most romance save the most precious person in ur life against supernatural phenomenon

Both have a female protagonist wearing a Playboy bunny outfit for reasons. While Moko wears it because of her job. Mai wears it because to find areas where she is visible. Difference is that Buta Yarou is a supernatural romance anime while Soap No Moko-Chan is a hentai comedy.

If you like Sakuta then maybe you'll probably like Kyon too. They might not be similar as Sakuta is really inlove with Mai and is witty, while Kyon is expressive and short tempered. But the story do have similarities as both the series revolves around the supernatural happenings around them.

Both anime are very similar on way of main characters dealing with their own problems and with problems from group of people sometimes the closest one to them. Both are also about young high school students that are experiencing first love, difficulities in friendship and a bit of family drama.

Both shows revolve around the main character/s dealing with supernatural phenomena caused by teenagers due to their emotional state in a high school environment.

Probably has been said but both deal with Supernatural. With a touch of enjoyable Slice of life and characters with depth, motivation, and complexities to them, both have enjoyable qualities if you are into this type of storytelling or genre.

Both series are about life problems and how to solve them without evading them by keep going no matter how hard they are. Both series use romantic themes and supernatural or imposible in real life situations or artifacts to bring atention to every problem the characters face in a simplistic way.

Is 'wholesome harem' a genre? Anyways, where 'Bunny Girl Senpai' teases titillation, 'Fruits Baskets instead teases romance, but both are actually much more about the main character helping people dealing with their problems than they are about those particular elements. The key difference that makes them a nice complement to each other is the way that the protagonists are characterized; Rascal is an aloof and seemingly apathetic guy who springs into action the moment someone he cares about needs help, and in contrast, Tohru affects change in others through her endless energy and positivity. The problems in Fruits Baskets tend to be more literal and  read more
