Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
If you liked
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Anime: Golden Time
...then you might like
Golden Time
Similarities:
-Lovable and honestly crafted characters are a strength of both shows
-Both feature a female lead who behaves in a rather unique way.
-Both include a love triangle
-Both are very upbeat and whimsical
-Both blend comedy and deep emotional feeling very, very well
-Both are unconventional, brilliant takes on the "coming of age" trope
-Both are slice of life anime as it should be told

Differences:
-the love triangle is front and center in Golden Time, unlike in Sakurasou where it is recurring but often in the background
-Golden Time will make you cry more; Sakurasou will make you laugh more

-Golden Time has a small supernatural element added into it
-Sakurasou is an ensemble piece where seven characters feel equally important. In Golden Time, while everyone is likable and layered, the emotional investment is pretty much completely focused onto 3 of the characters.

Both of these hold a very special place in my heart and I'd recommend either to anyone.
Anime: Scrapped Princess

Scrapped Princess
Anime: Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo
Two princesses fallen from grace are forced to embark on a journey for their survival on or near their sixteenth birthday. During this adventure they will confront many facets of the nature of the world they live in and strive to come to terms with them. This will have a great impact on the nature of their plight.
The two worlds presented share varying degrees of similarities in nature. Magic is an element with strong presence in Scrapped Princess but more subdued in Cross Ange, while Mecha is the main attraction for Cross Ange and a lot more subtle in Scrapped Princess. However the most similar point lies in the true nature of the world and what the main characters finally represent with respect to the state of that world once the adventure concludes.
Ange is a lot bolder and wilder throughout the story compared to Pacifica, but both come to deal with their identity in a world that wants them dead, and both pursue the path of the living with strong ardor despite their circumstances.
Scrapped Princess is a show that is a lot more normal and toned down, but it tells a very similar story with similar themes.
If you enjoyed Cross Ange, there's quite a few reasons why you might also enjoy Scrapped Princess, however some may find it milder to taste. If you thought Cross Ange went too far in certain areas, I believe Scrapped Princess is the closest experience to Cross Ange's story without those elements present.

Crazy that no one has recommended this anime yet.
In both animes the main character is a newbie in the sport they are playing. They both end up playing for prestigious teams due to the coach seeing special potential in them. They are both first years. They both decide to join their teams because they want to play with a specific talented person. They both run a lot in the beginning of the anime. They both inspire the other teammembers their year to run a lot.
They both play in tournaments, they both meet prestigious teams and newbie teams.

I could go on and on. Basically Days(TV) is just a shorter version of Diamond no Ace with football instead of baseball. If you like both sports I believe you will enjoy both :)

[Colette is known to hang out in lockers throughout Konobi, which I think is a reference to when Dekomori was stuck in one in Episode 3 of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!?]

If you liked Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai then I think This Art Club Has a Problem! should be your next watch.

Barakamon isn't about parenting which is one of Usagi Drop's things, but there are tons of similarities nonetheless.

I personally preferred Barakamon to Usagi Drop as the former showed a bit more character development but the difference isn't massive. Good shows both and worth a try even for people who normally don't care for slice of life

-Desire to change the world is the wish in some of the characters
-Anti-Heroes do whatever it takes to change the world

The two have a similar atmosphere, the story is composed in a similar way, where the main character help people with their problems and repeats the cycle, and although episodic, the two have a fixed plot that doesn't change in every episode, like episodic series could make). There is a little "harem" in the two, where the main character is loved by more than one girl.

The main character in the two are quite similar, the two being normally in calm and reflexive, the kind of "hero of justice" that looks for the happiness of everyone but sometimes a little pervert (although Araragi is much more than Touma).

The two are good ones and I think everyone who has watched Monogatari, Index will remind them from it.

Both series are about an Inari shrine girl who has the rare ability to see celestial beings (fox spirits, mainly) and befriends and/or helps them.

Kokoro Connect
Both animes have a similar feel to one another, with plenty of feels and backstory to go around. Also, when finishing Clannad, and going onto Koroko Connect, I screamed a lot of Clannad characters, since a lot of the English voice actors take roles in both shows (ex: Sunohara, Ryou, Tomoya, etc.,). You can get easily attached to both of these series, though Clannad is more of a Drama-Supernatural, while Kokoro is a Comedy-Supernatural.
