Both explore the psychological state of a magical girl and her relationship with another magical girl, though in a different way. Both are dark.

Both are at first very simple,but become darker at the end.
And in the two there is a friends relationship on summer.

Both are not your average magical girl show, as they portray the dark side of that it really means to be a 'hero of justice'. Darkness exists because happiness exists. 
report Recommended by MagicFlier
Both are magical girl series of a darker sort, and involve putting the heroine through a number of trials. 
report Recommended by Numi
Both of the animes are magical, and the characters are drawn in similar styles, in particular the eyes. They also both have a somewhat yuri-ish feel to them at some parts. Plus, they both have really cute outfits! 
report Recommended by TsuruyaSonozaki
Both anime are collecting jewels or stones (whatever!) to accomplish their mission and they are able to get it every episode!

They're both Mahou Shoujo shows but there's a thing that seperates them from other Mahou Shoujo shows. Both are pretty cliché at first sight but after a few episodes a darker storyline will appear. Both shows have drama and pretty serious issues, not suitable for the age group of many other Mahou Shoujo shows.

The theme of magical girl are central parts of both series. However, unlike most magical girl anime(s), both of these series falls more into the psychological and topics more suited for the mature audience. Additionally, both of these series become more and more emotional as the episodes drags on that makes them an unique little gem.

-Mahou shojo involved.
-Two girls of opposite personalities are the protagonists.
-The maho shojo give many problems to the "normal girl"

Maybe uta~Kata is more mature than ultra maniac, and has more drama.

Despite the gaudy outfits provided for the main heroines when they use their special powers, both Uta-Kata and Sailor Moon take a step down deeper into the more hidden realms of their gifts (or curses) side effects. Both Usagi of SM and Ichika of Uta-Kata are plagued by the darker side of their powers and end up being the focal point of the world either being saved or destroyed.

The main girls are very similar in their personalities. They both meet someone who has to do with "magic" and are given responsibilities that have to do with that "magic." Both girls have really good friends who they want to protect in some way.

Both shows have both slice-of-life and darker aspects - while Gakkougurashi shows its dark side pretty quickly, Uta Kata takes time to ramp up, but finally comes to a level you could call similiar.
Both feature a childish main character with an unnatural hair colour as well as (at least) 1 more mature protagonist.
School themes are present in both anime.

Abandonment issues?! Child abuse?! In my magical girl shows?! Kamikaze and Uta Kata are not the sparkles and rainbows that some people think magical girl shows should be. Whether it's fighting one's inner demons, to actually turning into one, both shows highlight the weaknesses of the human heart. Tones vary from lighthearted to deadly serious in a flash; one moment it's cute slice of life in school and another it's bone-chillingly psychological warfare.

Both shows start off as happy-go-lucky magical girl anime full of cheerful, moe, slice of life moments. However, as both shows progress, they get much darker, and you can see how the main characters suffer as a result of using their powers. Yuki Yuna is a Hero is more of a Magical Girl Warrior show, where the main characters transform to fight enemies that threaten their world, whereas Uta Kata is more about using magical powers to accomplish various tasks. Also, Uta Kata has romance in it, while Yuki Yuna is a Hero does not.

Both anime involve a girl with a normal life, but once they meet a friend who comes from an unexpected place, their lives begin to change. Both shows get darker and more serious as they progress, and they both show main characters who have to deal with hardships and difficult situations. Uta Kata is a mahou shoujo, and Brigadoon has mecha influences. 
report Recommended by Noodle070
Both are mahou shoujo shows that start out happy, but then become very dark and sometimes brutal. Both show the gradual mental breakdown of the protagonists. 
report Recommended by NlSHlKlN0
Another bittersweet supernatural tale that takes place in the course of a single summer. While not as emotionally tumultuous as Air, Uta~Kata is brimming with melodrama and a storyline that rolls further into darker territory with every episode. 
report Recommended by Splitter
both highlight the weaknesses of humans, as well as their strengths. emotional, dramatical, psychological anime which has you thinking a lot. both has excellent character development and storylines, though uta kata is more magical girl (but very very dark) whilst shigofumi is more hellish in that it is letters from the dead. both good watches

both are ste apart from the normal magical girl set, seems more deep and more action etc.

If you watched Kiddy Grade,you will be amazed by how much the characters from Uta Kata resemble the characters from KG(in the way they are drawn).Of course,the genre is other,no mecha,fighting or anything you would find in Kiddy Grade,maybe excepting the very close relation between the two girls. 
report Recommended by Yousei-tan
Both share the same genre mahou girl, and in both the main girls have to collect something for a goal.  
report Recommended by Orulyon
Both are cute, magical animes about a young girl, and they both seem to get a new outfit almost every episode. 
report Recommended by TsuruyaSonozaki
both shows start off seeming innocent and happy but as they go on the characters have to face confrontations with other characters, with themselves and the consequences of there actions. both shows are amazing and if you enjoyed one give the other a shot they were truly amazing and have beautiful stories to tell. 
report Recommended by sesgel
Both series center around the mystery of one or more of the characters, with bittersweet resolutions. 
report Recommended by Kylearan
Both ecchi animes with cute girls, and a seemingly sweet storyline that starts to turn somewhat dark. 
report Recommended by TsuruyaSonozaki
Sumire drawing style is similar to Ichika and also both of them have a power that they don't want to use, but in the end they end up using them. Both of them have an unrequired love.

Lucia is also similar to Manatsu in drawing style. Both of them have green hair tied in pig tails. They were already involved in the world of magic/viruses before the other girls arrive. Both of them have a deep bond with the other girl and both animes give you a yuri-ish feeling.

However Venus Versus Virus is not really yuri while Uta Kata you will  read more
