If you liked
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
...then you might like
Namaikizakari.

Serious girl, crazy guy that kinda just says "I choose YOU!" like he's throwing a pokeball or something. Namaikizakari adds sports into the mix.

If you liked
Bleach
...then you might like
Ao no Exorcist

Main protagonist is mostly brawn and no brains, but they have friends that always have their back. There is a focus on swordplay, demons (that can't be seen by normal people), and friendship.

If you liked
Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
...then you might like
Aldnoah.Zero

Lelouch and Inaho both use tactics instead of sheer power to defeat their seemingly overpowering enemies, even though Lelouch happens to have a useful superpower. Both have great animation, soundtracks, and unexpected plot twists.

If you liked
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
...then you might like
Akame ga Kill!

Tatsumi reminds me a little of Edward, with his firm determination and unyielding loyalty (and sometimes, naivete). They are both trying to take down a corrupt government, and they also both experience what it is like being unable to protect what they love, and work hard to change it.

If you liked
Shingeki no Kyojin
...then you might like
Aldnoah.Zero

It has a similar feel, with the "undefeatable" enemy and the struggle for human survival. The soundtrack is also similar. Above all, they are both epic and intense, leaving you anxious for the next episode :)

If you liked
Cross Game
...then you might like
Baby Steps

Both of these are relatively realistic sports anime with underlying romance. Neither has the best artwork, but don't let that stop you from giving them a chance, because they both have very good plots! :)

If you liked
Haikyuu!!
...then you might like
Baby Steps

Both of these sports anime make more of an attempt to be more realistic than something like Kuroko No Basket (or Prince of Tennis). (Even though they're a whole lot of fun to watch too :) Baby Steps has a few problems with the art, but if you can get past those, you'll find a great fast-paced story.

If you liked
Ao Haru Ride
...then you might like
Mune ga Naru no wa Kimi no Sei

The art and feel of these two manga are very similar. Although, not much of Mune ga Naru has been translated into english :P

If you liked
Kuroko no Basket
...then you might like
Haikyuu!!

Kuroko no Basket and Haikyuu give a similar feeling of intensity during games, as sports anime, and have both comedy and drama. They also have a similar focus on friendship and competition between team members.

If you liked
Liar Game
...then you might like
Bakuman.

It's not so much that the mangas are similar, but that I wanted to read a manga like Liar Game right after I read Bakuman. This was because the majority of manga that the main characters in Bakuman worked on were this type of manga, and I find it extremely fascinating.

If you liked
Karin
...then you might like
Orange Marmalade

Karin and Orange Marmalade are stories about vampires trying to live normal lives with humans (and having relationships with them--whether or not they know their identities). There is more comedy in Karin than in Orange Marmalade, but there is a good amount of drama in both.

If you liked
Ao Haru Ride
...then you might like
Orange

Both of these manga have absolutely beautiful art and a storyline about girls in love with boys troubled because of family problems.

If you liked
Lovely★Complex
...then you might like
Koukou Debut

Both about couples that really don't want to admit their love at first (because they swear not to fall in love for one reason or another), but of course inevitably get together eventually. The heroines have problems with trying to act and look more feminine.

If you liked
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
...then you might like
Gin no Saji

Granted, Silver Spoon has no plot similarities to FMAB. However, the humor is the similar, as is the art (which is fairly distinctive when compared to other drawing styles). I highly recommend it.

If you liked
Kimi ni Todoke
...then you might like
Last Game

Kujou and Sawako are very similar. They both lack friends at the beginning, are quite plain-looking, and are very dense when it comes to love. The heros fall in love with them, but developments are slow (nevertheless, extremely cute.) I think Last Game is most similar to Kimi ni Todoke, but it's more like a cross between Kimi ni Todoke, Special A, and Kaichou wa Maid Sama. haha

If you liked
Fruits Basket
...then you might like
Love So Life

The heroines are very similar. (Even their situations are very alike). Both manga are very cute and funny.

If you liked
Skip Beat!
...then you might like
Cat Street

Both manga are about actresses and their struggles with a life of show biz and their endeavors into love.

If you liked
Clannad: After Story
...then you might like
Usagi Drop

Usagi Drop is also about a single guardian raising a child, and it has a similar feel to it. The stories are both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
