Death Parade
While both shows may seem to have nothing in common on the first sight, their themes may be similar at times.
I am mainly associating with the first and a part of the second arc in the first season of Kaiji. Both shows deal with people in different situations, push them over the limit, and see how they react to it.
They are both animated by Madhouse, so the animation perfectly matches the moments.

So if you enjoyed Death Parade, there is a big chance you will enjoy Kaiji, especially the first season, while the second is also very good.

Here I am with my first recommendation, I will start out by saying that both of the shows are phenomenal. I enjoyed watching both shows and have realized the similarities between the two shows. They are about establishing friends on their journey and how it can change the world. The two shows have very similar positive and strong willed protagonists, Aladdin for Magi and Gon for HunterxHunter. The plot and the stories are both fantasy. If you are looking for a show which is upbeat and can cheer you up then take a look at the shows. Both have amazing adventures and what I found the most meaningful is the amount of things you can take from the shows like the life lessons and how it can be so relatable. Not to mention how you can fall in love with the characters like Killua and how Sinbad is so damn perfect. I recommend you check out both shows and hope you can enjoy them as much as I did.

Alien 9
Emotionally unstable kids forced to fight "aliens" for mysterious reasons.

Throughout the story, the characters do not only fight the unknown creatures but they also fight their own emotions and have to surpass various obstacles and limitations. Teamwork is also a key to beat the creatures. Alien 9 is an incomplete work just like EVANGELION, however, the latter got a movie that completes the anime and answers all the questions.

The protagonist of both anime is always depressed, crying and scared of everything. Most of the time they would be dead if it wasn't for exterior help. However, it is up to you to find out if they emotionally grow through the story after watching both shows.

Animation and sound wise EVANGELION is way superior, but do not let the simple Alien 9 visuals put you off. Give it a chance.

Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism
When I began to watch BSM I was like kill me now, we have T7 season 2 here now.

Both anime are action, ecchi, harems in a school setting, that was previously an all girl school. Onward, the protagonists of both have this "surprising" ability to make chicks go crazy for them but not only that they are also the most overpowered fighters in their worlds with some overpowered ability that only they can use. Continuing, both anime have deadly fights in their school setting, that could potentially lead to characters deaths but does this happen? Furthermore, in both anime there is this system of hierarchy across the school, where there are a group of the strongest and most powerful girls with the largest influence, in the school.

BSM differs however with is action scenes being from the use of swords and martial arts, unlike T7's use of magic. BSM also differs with it females characters all being what appears to be radical feminists that believe all men should be castrated, unlike T7's female characters who throw themselves at the protagonist. In terms of protagonist BSM's protagonist has self-constraint and is not one to exploit or take advantage over women, unlike T7's protagonist.

Overall I feel like BSM is a much better version of T7's but still not a good anime.

I was quite surprise to see that these two anime weren't the top recommendations of each other, as they're practically the same thing but with a different focus (boxing/manga).

Both anime follow the same story structure about youth growing larger in their desired fields and striving for their goals/dreams. Also, both anime utilise a very similar romance between the heroine and protagonist, that has this charming and heartwarming feel to it. Onward, both anime have similar comedy, that drives a viewer away from the drama to have them chuckling/laughing at the silly things the character do. Continuing, both anime have their serious moments, when the protagonists are depressed and broken down. Where in the end they overcome their obstacles to awake to the cheers and applauds of their accomplishments.

To end, both anime are heartwarming stories, about a journey through youth, that has its fun and charming times, to later become serious and inspiring. If you loved either one then you'll definitely love the other.

Gintama
The Getbacker's job & what Yorozuya "Odd Jobs" do are literally the same thing, & they're always flat broke & desperate for work. Aalo, both parties can be seen at a bar in pretty much every episode.

Kadzuki & Katsura are the long haired crossdressing warriors that men follow.

Even though Ban & Gintoki fancy themselves skirt chasers, neither of them ever get a woman, but do have overly affectionate male friends who maybe like them just a little too much. (Ginji & Madao).

Ban is said to be the devil himself. Gintoki is said to be demon spawn. They both also have issues with their father/father figure at the end of the manga. (Though the Getbackers anime only covers the first half of the manga).

All-male Onsen episode.

GetBackers has a female character who controls people with scented perfumes. The Love Potion arc of Gintama has one of those too.(OAV special).

Takasugi & Akabane live to fight.

Both have a brother who is inappropriately interested in his sister.

Both films deal with the topic of suicide and the adversities of growing up and making mistakes. They both also establish similar morals, such as the positive impact that considering those around you and being daring enough to make friends and enjoy yourself can inflict. Both also contain diverse characters that learn that making mistakes is not only okay, but natural, and doesn't define who you are and who you may come to be.

Overlord
Overlord and No Game No Life both take place in a "game". Overlord is more simaller to SAO with him being in a game forever, while No Game No Life is about two people who are bored who go to a already existing game world somewhere. I feel that if you think that you love games then definitely watch No Game No Life or Overlord, Overlord is more about mmorpg games and No Game No Life is like more then a wider range. But keep note that they are both 13+ but has very good comedy.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi
-Both series are based on time travelling
-While in 'Erased' its the main character's ability to do so, 'Steins;Gate' tries to put it in a scientifix and logical way
-In both anime, the main character time travels to save the ones close to them specifically females
-Both seem very boring in the first parts of the anime but get excellent later
-Erased focuses on the main character most of the time when but steins;gate puts the characters in groups and give an overall view of whats happening not just the main character's thoughts
-Both have some great plot twists and one of them revolving around a character
-Both have the main character having some psychological conflicts later in the series
While I think Erased fans will love steins;gate, i can not say the opposite because some say steins;gate has that 'Masterpiece' element but everyone has different views so feel free to try

Shuumatsu no Izetta:
Set in world war two so if you like the tank play in Girls und Panzer im sure you'd like Shuumatsu no Izetta, Its about a witch in world war two fighting for a fictional duchy set in the west of Austria (the french controlled Post war zone) and you can tell from the countrys armies there is a very strong french influence from the uniform resembling the WW1 french uniform in colour to the fact they even use the Renault FT-17 Light tank seemingly as their main battle tank. It has a witch using a PTSD-41 as a magic flying broom, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

Girls und Panzer:
A bunch of cute girls riding around in tanks blowing shit up... Whats there not to love? from what i can tell the tanks and the way the girls crew the tanks seem to be pretty historically accurate which is great and the combat seems to be quite fluent and is extremely fun to watch! My only real issue is that they live in cities on aircraft carriers... for some reason that annoys the hell out of me!

These are both anime that tackle the concept of souls as if it is a scientific thing rather than something to do with magic or religion. The main characters have someone who they hold dear but is not a complete human and wish to bring them back to being their former self. The same power that allows souls and bodies to operate separately is used as the main force used by the military. The fights and battles are all well animated.
