Both of the main characters go to school that specializes in their field; for Soma it's cooking for Jaden/Judai it's dueling, Crowler/Erina want the MCs to leave also both protagonists are really good at their respective fields.

Yugioh GX and Trigun starts off with a light hearted and comedic fashion until at some point it gets serious and dreadful which almost makes you want to lose hope. I find Judai and Vash similar where they are very protective but at the same time must face harsh consequences to overcome their obstacles.

Both shows deal with a male who has personal struggles to deal with and must shoulder the fate of the world upon his shoulders.

Both anime follow young protagonists who want to become the best at their fields. In both anime, the protagonists often make new friends and rivals, while battling other characters using monsters that have special abilities. Overall, both anime explore similar themes and have a similar mood.

If Tamers isn't the only Evangelion inspired anime, GX too can be considered one. Both series tend to deconstruct their main theme which is monsters and cards to a level where it portrays it realistically. psychologically, and consequentially. Takato and Judai are both based on Shinji Ikari despite being a previous main character archetype and both have personal struggles to deal with despite having positive moments.

Schools fight each other in competition to see who is the best with the addition of discrimination. The main characters in both series are talented individuals with low status gets hated only to gain respect later on.

One Punch Man and Yugioh GX have a powerful main char who wins in many battles but faces bad reputation from haters but do not mind their public image. JAM project does the opening in both shows as well.

Fate/Zero and Yugioh GX are considered to be deconstruction of their perspective series even though Fate deconstructed it twice in UBW and HF. Both take a realistic and moral approach on what fictional beings are of and what the consequences are. Fate Zero is more darker than Yugioh GX but GX gets darker until in the later seasons.

Both are supernatural stories set in a certain setting: Durarara-City Yugioh GX-Island What they have in common is discrimination between certain factions. Both have smart and strong characters. The only exception is that Durarara is superior to Yugioh GX because Durarara is an original story whereas Yugioh GX is nothing more than a cashcow.

What do these series have in common? Deconstruction? Check Emo and Angsty Characters? Check Saving the world by shouldering the burden? Check Wild Ride? Check

Another Evangelion-Esque similarity between those two series has what gotten me to put this recommendation. Blue and Orange morality is a trait that occurs between the antagonists of the series whereas character development that changes the character is exactly similar if not same. Plot has what is in common-assimilation plot period.

Both anime focus on a young student who enters a new, unique academy, and is soon swept up in a series of duels against other students. Both are anime deconstruct their respective genres and have a similar mood, although Yu-Gi-Oh! GX is not as heavy in symbolism as Utena.

Both are a little random episodes, with a little connection, you can miss some episodes and feels normal about it, have only a few arcs. All new episode is a new short story, that makes what the anime are, some you will like, others love, and some, maybe hate. The main characters have the same perfil, little lazy guys, with a logical's reasoning not to strong, but they live for only what they love, one dueling(GX) and be a honored samurai(Gintama). They have really closed friends, whose be with then in all confusion and show what is true friendship and others that aren't so friendly, maybe  read more

Both series have a strong Hero theme. Both main characters are somehow idiots, too, and share the color red as their trademark. They actually share a couple of plot developments, too. Both start with everyday life problems, then introduce a human villain with some superpowers and then there is a plot involving alien invaders. In both series this gets rather hilarious, you might also say, silly. Also, both main characters have to face an enemy that they somehow created and who threatens to hurt their friends. The biggest difference is in pacing, since Samurai Flamenco has only 22 episodes (its arcs last about 4-5 episodes  read more

The main thing in this anime is also monster from cards.And both anime have bold main characters.

Because you will identify and recognize some voice actors in Digimon Savers/Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX (Judai's voice actor plays Kouki during Manjoume's voice actor plays Agumon and I guess there are more...), they both have done on the same animation company (Toei Animation), the main character is called 'Aniki' by one of the best friends (Sho and Kenzan on Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX and Agumon on Digimon Savers) and... Battling monsters! XDDD

More light-hearted than their predecessors, GX and LotT provide endearing characters and whimsical situations. Don't watch these if you're expecting the same feel as the ones before them- you WILL be disappointed. However if you'd like to delve deeper into a franchise about gaming these are two anime that offer a warmer approach to their respective, seemingly darker genres.

Similarities: I probably need not say as to why, because it's already very obvious. Dissimilarities: In YGO every deck- holder is enrolled in a duel academy, while in CV card holders come form different schools and does card fighting as extra curricular activity (for most of them, that is). In YGO, in order for one to have a couple of top or rare cards in one's deck, a deck-holder has to battle to get it, while in CV top cards were either in the fresh deck that can are bought form a local card-fight store or you also battle to get it. However, rare cards have to be  read more

Taking place several years later. A New Generation of players have taken interest in Duel Monsters/Vangaurd. Both anime has new characters in the same universe. The original characters from previous season will make an appearance to help the new main characters out.

Like Eva, both Madoka and Yugioh GX deconstruct their main theme like what Evangelion did. Interestingly they are not to be judged based on the cover of the book as each episode unfolds its true meaning. The only difference is that Yugioh is intellectual and strategical whereas Madoka is psychological and mindblowing.

It's also about a Monster Card Game.

Yugioh GX can be described as Pokemon meets Magic meets Berserk to fans in general but as for Yugioh fans, more like Yugioh meets Berserk meets Evangelion. The dimension world arc is somehow similar to Berserk in a similar fashion where it gets dark and creepy along with people becoming sacrificed. Judai's relationship with his friends and co is a reminiscent of Guts and Griffith but in a shonen manner.

Similar to Naruto, Yugioh GX is about a young kid in a fictional school where his talent starts to get recognized by everyone which later saves the day from a dangerous threat.

both main story about cards.

Both series are deconstructions of something - GX is a deconstruction of the Yugioh anime, whereas NGE is a deconstruction of the mecha genre. Both series have the main character undergo a very emotional struggle - additionally, the main love interests for the main characters in both series share first names (if you're watching the sub of GX).
