I find both of them have similar vibes and are at least somewhat thought provoking.

Both animation styles are different from the usual ones you find in anime and are unique (Though not similar to each other).

Both are series containing multiple stories (Mononoke contains 5, Aoi Bungaku Series contains 6).

Lastly, both of them are (somewhat) hidden gems.

Re:Creators
Basically the only anime close enogh to give you what Re:CREATORS is doing.Both are great underrated gems (especially Re:CREATORS) which focus on the creation and impact of stories. Recommend both mostly to artists and writers (creators basically lol). You can think of Shirobako as a spiritual prequel to Re:CREATORS as Re:CREATORS explores in a fresh new way (with the bonus of really cool action scenes...which I know aren't the focus..but an epic addition nonetheless..not to mention it's META AF damn!)
Attention to detail is key as well. If you catch onto info quickly, you'll have a blast

Both are based off of retro manga (though in Osomatsu's case, it's a sort of sequel, whilst in Mahoujin's case it's a reboot)

Osomatsu-san is far cruder, but the humor is fairly similar in both series.

Both shows are usually mindless fun.

Guru Guru tends to stay more on the cuter, light-hearted side while Osomatsu-san has more adult jokes, howeever.

If you liked Full Metal Panic! Grisaia will not disappoint you; it takes much more of the mature and darker route that Full Metal Panic! did not quite touch on.

Anime: Rocket Girls

Rocket Girls
Two shows about a more contemporary, realistic, unglamorous side of space travel. Their protagonists generally do mundane jobs in Earth's orbit and work for departments with few resources and even less respect, although they all wind up getting involved with larger adventures by the end of their stories. Both shows have similar aesthetics and senses of realism but also veer into wacky comedy from time to time. Rocket Girls clearly has more of a moe influence, but other than the character designs of its leads and their ages (and generally age-appropriate personalities and behavior), one could easily see the two series taking place in the same universe at different points in time.

- Both animes are related to games somehow.

I would say "Gamers!" is a fusion between Baka to Test and Toradora! but obviously, its own essence that differentiates from both animes. It's a very very good anime and I mean it! Especially its last episode (Episode 6) made me laugh I lot, and I'm not an easy laugh guy. I am liking it so much, give it a try!

Anime: Aria The Origination
If you liked
Aria The Origination
Anime: K-On!!
...then you might like
K-On!!
Despite how different they may look on the surface, Aria and K-On (as complete stories with all seasons) have essentially the exact same themes, and the exact same strengths.

- Both are ultimately coming-of-age stories about a group of close friends who realize that they will not be able to stay inseparable as they move towards the next stages of their lives (graduation and college in K-On and becoming Prima's in Aria). Both leave with the message that "though things may never be the same, you will always treasure the old days, and the here-and-now is fun as well." They both speak of cherishing every moment of life while it lasts, both happy and sad.

- Both have slow pacing and take their time introducing us to, and getting us familiar with and attached to the world and characters, but will eventually culminate in an impactful, rewarding payoff later on. Both show's characters are multi-faceted and incredibly lovable, and are characterized via strong visual storytelling rather than exposition. Both have characters whose past experience parallels what the main characters are going through and who use that experience to mentor and guide the main characters while reminiscing about how much that time meant to them (Sawako-sensei in K-On and Alicia, Akira, and Athena in Aria).

- Both employ subtle character development and detailed world-building to make their settings and characters feel alive, impactful, and special. Both rely on familiar places and events to instill a sense of nostalgia and show how characters are now compared to in the past, and they use it to employ an emotional undercurrent in many places. Both put the passage of time and the changing of seasons at a forefront (they employ Mono no Aware to be deeply resonant).

- Both series have writing by Yoshida Reiko, who employs dialogue that sounds natural and which is still entertaining, funny, and/or impactful. Both have moments of pure bliss, and both have made me cry on more than one occasion as the characters grow, realize what growing-up means, and move on.

- Both have practically no fanservice at all, and treat their characters with respect even the opportunity to be sexual arises.

- Both have some of the best insert songs ever, many of which are used during the best and most moving scenes of each series.

- Both are essentially tied for my favorite anime of all time, and both are masterpieces in my eyes which I'd recommend to everyone who can appreciate Slice of Life and doesn't mind slow pacing if it leads to a powerful long-term payoff.

- The differences are that Aria has an inherently more interesting setting with uniquely specific details and which gets more focus, is more soothing and relaxing as opposed to funny (though it is funny when it wants to be), has fantasy and sci-fi elements. K-On's school feels more detailed thanks to a consistent layout with connected locations which change appropriately as time passes, despite the fact that the school isn't focused on as much as Neo-Venezia in Aria. K-On is more funny, bombastic, and light-hearted as opposed to relaxing and contemplative (though it is those things when it wants to be), and is more grounded and realistic.
Anime: Bakemonogatari
If you liked
Bakemonogatari
Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
...then you might like
Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
This recommendation is mostly because of the directing and art of each show - Madoka is, at times, a toned down version of Monogatari in that sense, and the trippy art direction is something I consider to be a huge plus. Not to mention many of the voice actors that were in Bakemonogatari also appear in Madoka Magica and do a great job (e.g. Homura and Senjougahara are voiced by the same person). Granted, there are large differences in the plot and themes of each show, but I think that there are enough similarites there so if you liked one, there's a better than average chance you'll like the other.

Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
Bokurano and DS2. Both series have these similarities:
- The protagonists are chosen to acquire a certain skill, which will serve to destroy some enemies for the humanity, which, it is known how much they will appear.
- The protagonists have the risk of dying, every time they use their abilities
- The anime shows that fighting is the only option, since that will depend on the destruction of this world, by higher beings, who decide the fate of the Earth.

The series convey the feelings of the protagonists, in their decision to fight or not, trying to escape their responsibilities and at the same time creating an excuse to do so. It shows the psychological struggle of them against the people who look at them with rancor, since their powers brought death to humanity.

Jigoku Shoujo
Anime: Mushishi
...then you might like
Mushishi
When I first watched Mushishi, among my first thoughts was: "This is a lot like Hell Girl". The similarities are listed below.
- Each episode is segmented, providing a short story
- There is a sense of darkness to the story (Although Hell Girl is darker)
- Both have supernatural elements, even though Mushishi tries to hide it under the pretence of pseudoscience

Other than that, there are some differences that might affect your experience
- The time setting differs greatly. Hell Girl is set in the present day, while Mushishi in some point in the past
- Half way through, Hell Girl shifts slightly towards a connected narrative between episodes. This is in part, the reason why I have slowed down my viewing of Mushishi, because there's little coherent connecting narrative
- Hell Girl is a lot darker, and a lot more tragic

Boku no Hero Academia
This is the one show that went through my head while watching BNHA.

- Similar protagonists who start out shy with low self-confidence and slowly overcome it as the show goes on. Both use their intellect to win fights and overcome obstacles.

- Both protagonists have a role model which drives them to push themselves to their limits. They both idolize their role model, but with Simon it's a younger/older sibling relationship whereas with Izuku it's a fanboy/superhero relationship.

- Cast of fun, goofy characters which aid the protagonist or cause him conflict on his journey.

- Great writing which manages to draw out emotions from the audience regardless of the depth of the concepts and events which the story puts forward.

While Hyouge Mono has a little action and politics (which are, granted, also explored from a perspective of aesthetics), both series take their time to construct beautiful interactions between a true aesthete and their guest.

Both feature all female lead characters who get involved with top secret operations. One fights witches, while the other engages in espionage. Although staring very cute high school age girls, they both deal with very dark subject matter and heavy moral obligations; the difference being Princess Principal was more upfront about it. The biggest similarity would have to be in the character personalities and motivations. Much like every character in Princess Principal is different and has different reasons for joining, each character in Madoka are very different with different motivations. Watching them all try to work together despite these differences is what makes both shows great.

Both are best enjoyed when the brain is turned off, so the absurd, yet fun plot is not overthought, but they both still have deep, immersive messages that can get the viewer thinking if they are paying attention to metaphor and symbolism.
If you enjoyed the style, animation, and themes of either show, you will find the other enjoyable, as well.

-Deaths occur out of nowhere and spread like crazy
-The series end in a similar fashion that wraps up the story
-There is no happiness but tragedy
The only difference is that Valvrave is the reconstruction of the tropes deconstructed in Code Geass and Gundam IBO continues the trend of 00's deconstruction of the Gundam tropes.
