Both are brilliant 'slice of life's to relax to. They have the same eerie feel to them, and done in a similar style whereby you follow a girl's journey through everyday life taking pictures and generally finding themselves and the little enjoyments of life. Fuujin Monogatari has a tiny bit more action and an element of fantasy whilst Tamayura is a bit more toned down.
Both are anime shorts, which give you a glimpse of several different worlds. A variety and mix of everything. Both are worth a watch just to see the huge range of things animation can take us.
The side story in Clannad of the girl in the lost world coincides with the storyline of The Place Promised in Our Early Days. They carry the exact same sad empty atmosphere.
Both have extraordinary animation, especially the scenery. The viewing experience is stunning, instead of watching characters the main focus is the breathtaking scenery.
Kiki is more fast paced with more action, but both have young female protagonists on an adventure to try and find themselves. Both are calm slice of life anime to unwind. Also, animation for the win!
Bring on the relaxing slice of life uplifting anime! Similar comfy cushion feel to both, calms you to sleep (in a good way). And feast yourself on gorgeous animation, particularly Yokohama.
Similar atmospheres, a high paced trip through eccentricity. Both have overly enthusiastic energetic guys paired with a girl facing various adventures. Also share the same sense of humour.
They are both eccentric peculiar anime, which seems to leave you with the same not-exactly-sure-what's-going-on after taste. Both have mysterious elements which coincide with slice of life occurrences with added humour. Not your typical watch, both are great anime with similar atmospheres.
If you like one, you are bound to like the other. Both have strong minded women with several different pressures in a beautiful romance with kind hearted but high-ranking men, and how they overcome obsticles life throws at them. Both amazing faiytale-like reads :)
Both amazing manga verging on the same storyline and definitely the same exciting atmosphere. Yes for great shoujo with hot hot bishies!!!
Both contain the same concept - where there is a device which allow humans to go into their own kind of 'matrix' using their imagination, and produce whatever they want in this alternative dream world.
Both have fantasy elements, with magic used by the characters to combat an evil organisation. Both go on adventures, and encounter problems with some good action. They both also have lots of drama, with the guy who has a possible love interest for the main girl (who has some unfortunate fate/destiny concerning the world and it's destruction) and fight to find a way to stop it.
Both have a relaxing atmosphere, which is very calming, though it does get serious and there is some action.
Both contain, romance between the main 2 characters; with the guy trying to protect his love. Both also have fantasy, where the world/universe appears to need some sort of sacrifice; so there is always a sense of lurking doom. Both have a lot of cheese, some comedy and is quite predictable, but nice watches.
Both focus on music, however the short 5 min takes you on a journey to the unknown, packed with fantasy and mystery
High school slice of life romantic dramas. Need I say any more?
Both have a guy who seems innocent on the outside, but have special powers and connected to secret organisations which battle against certain phenomena which affect people within the city; all part of many principles tying up to form a large plot. Both have the same dark supernatural power which takes over certain people which they must overcome.
The storylines are completely different, but if you like the old-film technique in one, then you're sure to see it in the other.
Anime shorts. Both are extremely old, and have that projector feel to it. Surreal and strange storylines...
Both are essentially aimed at children, though it is still deep enough for adults to enjoy (they are both better, in my experience, than other anime which was meant to be directed at adults). They both have the same feel, there cute characters haveto solve supernatural mysteries which appear in normal life. Generally episodically solving it by the end. Don't be fooled, there are serious character development and good plots along with some humour and mostly fun.
Both are brilliant slice of life high school romcom dramas. It's mainly consisting of comedy (well done comedy) but every so often turn serious and dramatic - pulling heart strings. These can be from issues concerning love or family etc. Both are great watches if you are into romcom high school dramas.
Both involve deep, brilliant, complex storylines which have you sat on the edge of your seat all the way through. Masterpieces, involving lots of character development and twists and turns in the story. Although they are different genres, both have high emotional content and have the ever advancing (with every episode) sense of doom.
Defineately the same futuristic-yet-historical feel and atmosphere to both. Nice pleasant watches, including fantasy, some comedy, action and lots of adventure (group travel places to achieve a goal)
The same kind of quirky humour for both, the same kind of brilliantly simple yet very well done animation. Both have unique characters, which combine to make a cleverly-thought-out storyline which is told in a similar fashion. Both great watches
Random guy who is kind hearted, meets cute girl in random circumstances. Girl happens to be related to some kind of supernatural power, and thus boy gets thrown into a choatic world of fighting, action, complex strange new principles, etc.
oh the similarities are endless. but most prominent: same type of psychological horro with plenty of action and suspense. both focusing on the weakness of human emotions to the extreme.
Random yet interesting surreal events which seem completely out of this world. Extremely short sequences.
Because both enter the deep realms of fantasy never seen before, has excellent animation, characters, development and makes you have a dream to remember.
both have quirky similar random humour (which is at excellent quality) and has simiar strange atmosphere to it, where it (in soul eater) is in a different gothic world whilst kuroshitsuji is normal life with many dark supernatural aspects (which also seem quite gothic). lots of action, some drama, lots of humour and great general anime :D
the same storyline and atmosphere: random 'God' who is contained in a schoolgirl's body, and is energetic, confident, crazy which gets involved in trouble and creates weird situations out of normal life and school. no real storyline, normal innocent good guy who gets caught up in all the crazy plans.
the same kind of episodic magical happy-happy girl anime, where this is a concept (CSS: collecting more more cards & shugo chara: cleansing heart eggs). every episode contains humour action, good morals etc like any other magical girl anime, but both done to a brilliant standard
both are slice of life dramas with a touch of romance and even some comedy. both portray the ups and downs of life extremely well, having tons of soul searching, character development, beautiful development between the characters in complex, interesting and realistic ways. beautiful!!
exactly the same type of male protagonist. boring but kind, nothing-much-to-him. somehow lands himself a girl whos an alien/God, and hence elements of romance and comedy.
the ups and downs of love and relationships....both amazing portrayals :D
well, shana has TONS of action, complex (overdramatic) storylines; whilst kannagi is much more relaxed with nothing much happening except everyday things, however the main male protagnists are extremely similar in that they seem quite laid back average, nothing-much-going-on guys, who by some odd reason gets chased by some girls.
tmc is a bit more serious and more dramatic, whilst winter garden is much more relaxed and laid back, however both are short beautiful romances, with a little slice of everyday life of the female protagonist.

powerful romantic dramas. ef is more breathtaking and sweet, whilst hanbun is much more bittersweet, but both express the importance and great power of love.

quirky humour. also good serious plots as well. strange unique atmospheres which is weird and slightly creepy. brilliant watches!
supernatural stuff. shigofumi is much more dark and has violence, whilst mushishi is more relaxing and less dark/action. both good though
relaxing atmospheres, yet natsume has more action and supernatural element as well. yet both seem to show how beautiful world it is and ends each episode with a nice calming feeling
windy tales has more action and adventure, as well as supernatural, whilst sketchbook is more slice of life, appreciation of the world based, but both similar atmospheres
they appear to be completely different, but the feeling and relaxing atmosphere of both of them are similar. slice of life with a tad of drama, and supernatural elements :D
both extremely emotional dramas which reflect the harshness of love and life. both show many different storylines which show the soul searching of different individuals. ef a tale of memories is more based on young school goers and is also more artistic, whilst honey and clover is more based on older adult problems and has a different way of protraying the events; however both and brilliant watches and both have the same extremely bitter sweet taste.

both show the story in the same unique way: instead of focusing on the character, it focuses much more on the scenery and aspects present there. there is also a lot of storytelling by the characters. both show the harshness of life and love, though 5 cm per second is more realistic and therefore more sad. both are excellent watches though

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
the same school/youth setting. both good dramas, and has good action. ghost hunt is more supernatural (crime involving supernatural phenomena) whilst shigofum is more serious and darker/more gruesome (letters from the dead which stir up trouble), but both are good watches. also has a very small touch of comedy to both of them.
psychological drama/thrillers with hints of horror. uniquely complex, serious storylines. same darkness - looking at human psychology and how extremely cruel they can be towards other humans in seemingly every day situations/people. shigofumi is based on letters from the dead which raises issues which were present, whilst jigoku shoujo is bad-person-annoys-good-person-who-takes-revenge-by-sending-them-to-hell.
supernatural, psychological, action-packed thrillers. both are expressed in different arcs, consisting of unique and very clever storylines. darker than black however is more based on the strange phenomena of people having strange powers and "hell's gate" whilst shigofumi is based on letters from the recently dead; but both are very dramatic dark anime which has lots of character development and intriguing twists and turns as well as tension and even gruesome parts. both good watches which require some thought (darker than black more so).
Well firstly, both are shoujo comedy school slice-of-life anime. both shows the dramas of each member of a special group of friends. ouran is romantic in that the club is set up to entertain women, whilst special is romance in the sense that most of the characters have their own love story and pair up. however, both have similar atmospheres. ouran's comedy is better, but special a still has it's fair share. they even end nearly the same!! many scenes reminded me of the other.

Although they seem like completely different genres etc, they both have the same relaxed and calming quality to it. natsume yuujinchou is more supernatural, and though aria has its supernatural moments (the mysterious cats), it is more relaxing slice-of-life. however, after watching an episode, they both give you a nice warm feeling.
