Top Wingmen/Bro-est of Bros by the male protagonists. In ReLife, it's Arata helping his fellow classmates out in their own romances and not their own; in Orange it's Suwa & Hagita helping out their own brofriend where it might sacrifice one of their futures.

A true bro, one that places his bro above himself and with self-sacrifice that it's admirable and actually heart-touching (since they're not doing their actions out of the interests that'll benefit themselves but those that they're looking after).

Ok, this is going to be hard to explain, but first, I will and never compare brotherhood to a crap series. this series is good. Magic (Alchemy), well developed characters, world domination and survive of the fittest. Fate zero put in challenge the skills of their characters, fighting each other to achieve one goal. Same with brotherhood, where the alchemist, using their skill at their full, must uncover all the mysteries behind the ongoing events. Filled with mystery, thriller and action, these both anime wouldn't disappoint you.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
Anime: Densetsu Kyojin Ideon: Hatsudou-hen
...then you might like
Densetsu Kyojin Ideon: Hatsudou-hen
Neon Genesis Evangelion director Hideaki Anno has often cited Yoshiyuki Tomino's Space Runaway Ideon as one of his biggest and most important influences. Anno's directorial style is very similar to Tomino's style, with an overall very cinematic feel in their works, similar camera angles, and a very similar, clear, and often realistic scene presentations. Just like its predecessor (The Ideon: Be Invoked), The End of Evangelion is a dark and bloody film filled with plenty of deaths, and strong feelings of hatred and desperation, and in the end, everybody dies (or turns into orange juice, in Eva's case) in both films. Their endings, however, have some light and hope shining through.
If you wanna watch something filled with deep, philosophical meaning and plenty of bizarre, mindscrew-ish imagery, then go ahead and watch either one of these movies, both of which I regard as masterpieces.

Please don't forget to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion before The End of Evangelion and Space Runaway Ideon before The Ideon: Be Invoked. They both have their own respective compilation films, but neither one of them is a good replacement for the original TV series.

Anime: Rewrite
...then you might like
Rewrite
The stories consists of seemingly normal worlds with a group of great friends that are having the typical school life. It's pretty simple to believe that they're slice of lives without stories. However, nothing is as simple as it sounds because there's a major truth that exists in both worlds. Both of the main characters wanted to pry too deep into the surrealism because of their curiosity. The thing that they didn't realize is how everything, including their friendship would shatter because of their simple greediness to know. Both of these shows are from the KEY studio which means that they will be very dramatic and the development will mostly go towards the characters. The key elements in this anime are the perfectly done character drama and friendship aspect which does mean that the story will be flawed. If you can connect with the characters these flaws can easily be overlooked.

I highly suggest the English dub for the sheer craziness that the voice actor for Excel puts into her role.

Very Ironically, both anime are good and enjoyable, but are hated and talked down by the same group of fans and non fans and maybe trolls cause they try to do something different from the main series. Don't join the bandwagon!

Avilio is very similar to Lelouch, both are very clever manipulative tacticians, both seek for revenge for the death of their loved ones, although the atmosphere of both shows is way different, regarding the main protagonist these anime are kinda similar, if you like Avilio's character then you will totally love Lelouch Vi Britania.

Nisekoi
If you're fan of Karen's antics like *a few* people I've seen, Nisekoi has her VA, Nao Touyama, perform a similar role in an almost identical voice, as well as a few new takes throughout the series.

Cutesy Karen, Tsundere Karen, Sassy Karen, English-speaking Karen - all showcased in Chitoge, who is a main character, meaning more opportunities for her to shine. While not having exactly the same kind of humor as Kiniro Mosaic overall, Nisekoi's humor definitely has its moments. There are also little chibi segments of her in Nisekoi that wouldn't look too out of place in Kiniro Mosaic. Sometimes it feels like the Nisekoi producers uncannily knew exactly what they were doing with her character based on her previous performances...

Additionally, some tsundere bits from the show aren't too different from Ayaya's antics.

Similar overall feelings. Supernatural powers involved as well as how to make good use of them, fighting tactics etc. Music that suits perfectly to the atmosphere and mastered animation with cool effects. Sometimes you'll feel as lost as the characters. Almost same approach of mystery and psychology.

The one thing which makes main characters of these shows interesting is their seemingly limitless creativity. This is the main source of humor in both of these shows. Although, Tonari n Seki-kun also relays on additional character, who's reactions and interactions with main character add even more humor.

While most of the studio trigger has been working on many large scale projects there was small team which was focused on these "shorts" (shows with short episodes) which are in many ways better than their large scale projects. These short shows seem like passion projects which frequently reference Trigger's (and Ginax's) past works. Unfortunately these shows are still overshadowed by popularity of Trigger's larger projects.

Out of all series, I highly doubt you will find something as similar to UtaPri as B-Project. I mean, B-pro's character designer, drew the UtaPri manga and they share some voice actors. Then... Why isn't it the no.1 recommendation?
Well, B-project is fairly new. And I hope by the time you're reading this recommendation, it's already the most recommended series.

Okay. So B-Pro and UtaPri are pretty much the same, but at the same time they aren't. Let's say these stories share a same core. Imagine both of them are the same type of cake, but with different toppings.

So the main similarity is that both series are about male idols, with a female main character as main. She sort of manages the groups in her own way and it's up for debate whether she's likable or not. That's the cake. The topping is the way the characters are introduced, portrayed and how the story is filled. Every episode will focus on one specific character. However, whereas UtaPri takes a slower approach to introduce the characters, B-Pro just sort of slams all of them in your face during the first minutes of episode one. UtaPri also seems to have more of a 'main storyline' as we have Nanami's school life and her love Hayate. B-Pro is more slice-of-life orientated and takes an easier approach on that.
Both series take a lot of mainstream 'reverse harem' tropes, putting down a cast with very stereotypical characters. I don't know if it's because, back when I watched UtaPri, I saw a smaller amount of shows, or if it's something other people can agree on too, but the characters felt less predictable. In B-Pro's case, their actions, personalities and conversations sometimes even gave me this 'Dèja-vu' feeling.
The amount of romance in UtaPri is significantly higher, too. And better paced. And there wasn't usage of (sorry to use this word) shitty CG (at least in the first seasons). Then again, B-Pro seems to focus more on the aspect of being an idol (f.e. showing how a song gets recorded, the characters doing their first live, recording a commercial, ...).

Even though I think UtaPri is generally more likable, I think you should definitly give B-pro a shot if you're looking for something similar. I've seen that La Corda D'oro is currently the number one recommendation for UtaPri and honestly, I think it should be B-Pro.

So. Long things short:
- Male Idols
- Same mangaka (at least, B-Pro's character designer, Utako Yukihiro, drew the UtaPri manga. The character designs from UtaPri are by Kurahana Chinatsu)
- Similar music style
- Beautiful art
- Catchy songs
- Great voice cast
- Also some voice actors in common: Ono Daisuke (Kira and Kitakado), Morikubo Showtaro (Reiji and Hikaru, also note how they have a similar personality too) and Toriumi Kousuke (Cecil and Sakutaro).
- Characters that give off a similar vibe? Whether it's Ai and Aizome's similar name and design, Ranmaru and Goushi's similar view on things, Hikaru and Reiji who, as I said, share a voice actor and personality or just a common name like Mikado.
