Both anime is about the main characters being changed into a different type of human without them realizing. I guarantee that if you like one of these anime, you will like the other. Both characters got changed into something more than human, both anime shows the story of how these characters cope with their changes. The only difference is that tokyo ghoul is with humans and ghouls while kiseijuu is humans and aliens. To me, kiseijuu is like a complete version of Tokyo ghoul because it is just so similar

Anime: Naruto
If you liked
Naruto
Anime: Kingdom
...then you might like
Kingdom
Similar stories, except Kingdom have no magical or supernatural elements. Both Naruto and Xin in Kingdom are orphans. They are strong, and both have the same lack of respect for rank and formal authority. Naruto dreams about being a hokage and respected by all. Xin has the same dream, except he wants to be the greatest general. Iruka is the big-brother figure in Naruto and the first one to really see Naruto’s strength. That’s Heiki in Kingdom. He, like Iruka, isn’t not one of the overwhelmingly strong characters, but he cares about and watches over Xin. Shikamaru is the smart friend, Xin has Kario Ten and Mou Ten (And I guess Shika’s dad would be Shoheikun in Kingdom). Jiraya is Naruto’s strong mentor, but Xin has Ou Ki. I could go on much longer, like Ou Hon is the aloof and antagonistic noble in Kingdom, that might become a friend in the future, just like Neiji is in Naruto.
Anime: Kurau Phantom Memory
If you liked
Kurau Phantom Memory
Anime: Seirei no Moribito
...then you might like
Seirei no Moribito
Almost immediately, I felt like I was rewatching Seirei when I began this show due in large part to the similarities in plots. MC goes about her daily life until something supernatural happens, and is then responsible for protecting a secondary character from pursuers with questionable objectives. In spite of pursuit, both shows focus more on the daily lives of the main characters and their relationship, rather than action scenes. (Although those are sprinkled throughout both shows.) If Seirei's plot structure in a sci-fi setting piques your interest, I highly suggest giving Kurau a try.

Perhaps less than obvious, I kinda see Sakamoto desu ga? almost like a spiritual successor to Golden Boy. While very different with regards to the personalities of their leads, both shows revolve around an unorthodox "perfect" character whose bizarre behavior belies their capabilities, while interactions with them lead the supporting cast to strive to become better people. Sakamoto is cool, Kintaro is anything but, but their roles to the people around them are similar.

JSS isn't soul-crushing or graphic, rather it makes light of humanity's tendency to take that extra mile we didn't need, turn it into a spiked dildo, and fuck ourselves with it. Obviously not for everyone, but if you're a miserable ass like me, you'll find Texhnolyze powerful and JSS hilarious.

Atmosphere in both is so similar! Colorful art with game themes, at some point characters are travelling in a group, buying items for crystals and money and solving political problems, like in game. Music is also similar - very touching and peaceful while they travel, showing us fantasy scenery with sunrise light and talking about friendship themes, but sometimes it has more action and it happens of course when we have some fights, because in both animes we'll see them. In both our main character is taken to another world, where he meets monsters, elves, loli girls, etc.

...then you might like
Steins;Gate
Perhaps not the most obvious recommendation, those who appreciate an interesting concept spearheaded by an ultra-charismatic lead character will probably appreciate Code Geass and Steins;Gate. Both shows, while having several flaws, are probably the two best examples of an anime riding its narrative momentum to sail above their shortcomings. They are not the same in their concepts, but they are very similar in their goals regarding the impact it looks to have on the viewer.

Beck
Anime: Nana
...then you might like
Nana
The two dominant music-dramas in anime/manga, for good reason. Both feature excellent rock based soundtracks and deal in the realistic when it comes to human drama. Beck is more of a "breaking out of your shell and do something" story, while Nana is more about the pitfalls that come with freedom as young adults. Nana's a stronger work, but Beck's really easy to watch, so I'd start with it if you haven't seen either.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Both feature main characters that are considered to be 'lower class' magic users ('Weeds' in Mahouka, 'Level 0' in Majutsu) that actually possess extraordinary abilities that circumvent the typical power hierarchy in the universe. Both series also deal with the relationship between Magic and Technology. Both of the shows also feature interesting support casts, so even when the main characters aren't on screen, there's still someone bound to hold your interest.

Along with these powers can come a strong darkness. Where is the line drawn as to how far these powers will be used for selfish conducts? Is being the most powerful being what is important?

Both anime are adventurous.
They start off on a similar note as to starting an adventure. It is for the search of something, FMA to a philosopher's stone and HxH to Gon finding his father.
Both have overpowered supporting characters.
Anime: Soul Eater

Soul Eater
Anime: Noragami
...then you might like
Noragami
Noragami and Soul Eater use the "people are weapons" premise. Both anime have a cast of characters who fight demonic creatures. They're both animated by studio Bones. Aside from these superficial similarities they don't have much in common.
Soul Eater is a lot longer (51 episodes) and has a larger cast. Noragami is condensed into two short seasons and has a comparably small cast. Soul Eater is goofy whereas Noragami is more often than not pretty serious. The protagonists of Soul Eater have one or two personality traits but are otherwise kind of flat. The protagonists of Noragami speak and act like real people (as real as anime can get). Both anime are good but I prefer Noragami.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
...then you might like
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
Both plots rely heavily on a "racism" theme as well as changing government and civilian rights. There is also the concept of people "made" to control Mobile Suits. The only difference is that Iron-Blooded Orphans has less action (as in they don't fight in every single episode). But when there is no fighting they are forwarding characterization and introducing new plot pieces.

All in all, Iron-Blooded Orphans reminds me of Seed a lot! It's definitely worth a try :D

Anime: Texhnolyze
If you liked
Texhnolyze
Anime: Shinsekai yori
...then you might like
Shinsekai yori
Both are grim, nihilistic masterpieces revolving around mankind's "evolution" leading to its implosion. Shinsekai yori does this primarily through thorough examination of power structures and their tendency to divide populaces for control, while Texhnolyze examines how our ambition can run rampant to the point where we do a 180 degree turn and regress back to primal, sadistic animals. Both are essential viewing for those interested in socio-political fiction (though Shinsekai yori is definitely an easier watch, so try it first if you've yet to see either).

These shows are connected buy just how opposite they are. The protagonist of Himouto is a girl who doesn't really care about popularity, despite being the most popular, and she is seemingly flawless, not to mention the fact that everything goes her way. While Tomoko is a girl who cares about being popular, despite not being it, she is basically nothing but flaws, and not to mention that nothing goes her way.

Both shows are:

The artstyle is very different. but the atmosphere is similar; both make attempts to appear smart, mature, and full of depth much like the teenage protagonists the two shows focus on.
