Same random-ness and comedy style, both feature life of workers in a café. 
report Recommended by Galatea
-Both girls work in a store in the shopping district -Both girls are optimistic and happy -In both stories there's a guy that likes them but can't muster up the nerve to say so Soredmo Machi the form a band and in Tamako market they cheer with batons. Both girls also seem drawn to interesting and troublesome events. Both really cute stories

Both are great comedies that rely on rather random stories to provide humor. Characters drive both shows with magnificent displays of stupidity at the most unfortunate times. If you feel like getting away from all the overly perverted jokes that are now saturating the air waves, check these out.

Similar randomness & comedy. Similar fluid animation.

Two comedy animes that can be referred to slice of life genres, both animes happen mostly in the cafes their working... Both animes seem to get their punch lines mostly on the worker's "unusual" sides too... If you like that format of comedy of Working, then you might also have fun watching Soredemo...

If you have watched Gintama, you would have realized the story is about more than the three main character: it is about the town of Kabukichou. No character in Kabukichou is insignificant. Soredeom Machi wa Mawatteiru remind me of Gintama, specifically the communal aspects that were made possible by bringing together different unique perspectives from the residents, be it: fisherman, cop, vegetable seller.

Has the same magical feeling that And Yet the Town Moves has and is also made by SHAFT.

Both series are slice-of-life anime and have a stupid and funny female protagonist.

While, at surface level, neither show seems all that similar, they both adhere to very surrealist senses of humor. This humor eventually all culminates into two finales that push surrealism as extreme as either respective series can go. They also make use of more out there, fantastical elements in an otherwise grounded, everyday setting.

Both are slice-of-life comedies about a group of moe girls working in a cafe (or a dessert house). Supernatural element is contained in both series, but it is not such an important component in Gochuumon as that in Soredemo. Gochuumon offers a service for yuri lovers as there are no young boys in the main character list. Gochuumon has a romantic storyline between boys and girls but you can also imagine Shoujo Ai of Futaba×Hotori.

Both school comedy theme. The atmosphere and chara design look alike too. 
report Recommended by MugenDorimu
Humor are the same. Animation style is also identical. We are also dealing with the same airhead MC girl. While Arakawa is the more unique and downright weird, the comedy factor and style of story telling is the same. Also, both anime are very fun to watch. After your done watching Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, go to Arakawa Under the Bridge right away.

Wacky, slapstick comedy in a school setting, with an exaggerated main character and a predominantly female cast. The dynamic between the main girls reminded me a lot of JK no Mudazukai, and some of the side characters seemed very similar too.

It's simply about comedy and slice of life as well!

Light slice of life. Fun Comedy dominated by female characters.

Humanization through the use of ambiguity and comedy, with many jokes involving miscommunication and the power of words tl;dr DEEP 
report Recommended by Detective
Both have very similar pacing and humour style. Although they don't look similar at first, they both have pretty much identical mood and atmosphere. Their main dish isn't comedy or outrageous random laughter, but about life and daily routines of interesting characters. 
report Recommended by ringoo4
High school students mucking around is the general premise of both series'. Neither are parody or non sequitur heavy. The laughs generally come from the main characters' crazy machinations and odd behavior. Both series' also feature amusing student/teacher clashes.

both are about maid café  
report Recommended by albadr_almuneer
both series seem to be shot in a same town, as if it could be the girlish whimsiness of soremachi in the east end, and the adolescent kaizou-madness in the west end. and sometimes they swap sides.

With all the fast talking, these share the common ground of making me feel like I'm watching Gilmore Girls, but in a good way
