The main characters in both shows are quite similar: an enthusiastic female lead who has a taste for the dramatic and a low-energy male lead who allows himself to be sucked into her schemes. They both have a lazy and unmotivated boy who is drawn in by the female lead who is over energetic to start/restart a club. The male lead in both shows narrates the story from their point of view.

They were both made by Kyoto Animation studios. They both feature slice of life in high school club settings. Hyouka has a more slice of life/school life approach when Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu is more towards the Sci-fi supernatural side approach.

Both animes are centralized around a tight-nit group of supernatural (and kick ass) individuals who all seem to be haunted by their pasts in some way. The same type of light comedy is scattered throughout and the characters are lovable and interesting. The same thing even happens with the two seasons - season one of Hamatora is great but the second season gets darker faster and the plot line is pretty intricate and fun to follow. 10/10 would recommend if you liked Bungo :)

Both focus on a deep character development, especially in the way the main character deals with people around him. Is our life just ours? How much are we responsible for the people around us who love us?

The main characters in both of these anime deal with such problems, thinking about their lives and deciding whether it's worth even trying to change something or not. Does it matter if I die like this? Am I able to actually do anything good in this state I am right now?

If you liked this psychological aspect in NGE, you'll definitely love Rakugo.

Doukyuusei (Movie)
Okay hear me out. Both have realistic depictions of romantic relationships between high school couples. There's bits of comedy in each (more so in Kareshi kanjojo) but i also think they have very similar art styles in that they draw from manga by dividing the screen into panels and animating bits and pieces instead of trying to show off. I think in kareshi kanajo that's more a budget thing than intentional but it still pays off and looks really beautiful but simple. Both shows are also really tender with their characters imo which makes you love them 10x more. They're really patient and the pacing is nice (up until the last bit of kareshi kanajo but what can you do).

Watch both, they're really great (especially doukyuusei). I think you'll enjoy them and find they have more in common than you originally suspect.

Myself; Yourself is a bit more dramatic and darker than Clannad. Clannad is more on the supernatural side of things of student life however Myself; Yourself has a more realistic feeling to it with there being a very big depth in emotional problems that the main characters have to face. They both gradually over time become more and more dramatic over the course of the shows with some comedy factors in it.

Whether they call them Newtypes (Mobile Suit Gundam) or Perfect Soldiers (Soukou Kihei Votoms), both series present characters who have a naturally or genetically enhanced battle potential compared to normal humans. They have heightened senses and are thus feared on the battlefield by other pilots.

Both series are very character driven and have a lot of development for especially the protagonists.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar and Sword Art Online in a sense is about survival. They are trapped within the RPG worlds and must learn to live in a hostile environment. If you die in the game then you are gone completely. They both exist within a MMORPG kind of setting. Both anime show the protagonists learning new abilities to assist others in their adventures and developing relationships with the other inhabitants of the world they now share. The gamers are pretty much forced to make a living the same way one would expect to in the worlds of fantasy fictions.

The main difference is that Grimgar is a bit more team focused while Sword Art Online has somewhat team focus, but for the most part it is all about Kirito being a badass solo player.

They are both anime for masochists who enjoy being blue-balled ep after ep. The subject may differ, the genres may differ, the cast may differ, the plot and themes may differ, but the end result is the same. The thing you want to see more than anything, that is just on the very edge of the next frame, is actually not there.

These two works are adapted from Light novel. Another similar feature is the protagonist who is transported to a world medieval-fantasy, in addition the two protagonists will have to work, the protagonist will also encounter his harem.

Fights are about 5-6 minutes long as well. Both in re: zero as in konosuba the protagonist has to save his girls, but this in turn is saved by the girls, these girls accompany the protagonist in their adventure.

A difference is that in Re: Zero I found a lot of drama and lots of screams, instead in konosuba is pure comedy refreshing and a fantastic mood

There are several things these shows have in common, namely:

1. Both shows are about humans being under siege, in OnS it's by vampires, and in WT it's by "Neighbours". In OnS most of humanity has been wiped out, but in WT it's never really made clear if the damage only applies to that specific area in the world or if there are other places.

2. Both shows feature main "companies" that were created to defeat these enemies:
OnS: Moon Demon Company - WT: Border

3. Both shows have similar enemies, that also are similar in power/strength:
Weaker ones:
OnS: 4 Horsemen of John - WT: Trion Soldiers
Strong ones:
OnS: Noble vampires - WT: Humanoid Neighbour,

4. Both shows have similar weapons and rank to them, the strongest ones being:
OnS: Black demon series - WT: Black Triggers
In both shows, they come with some form of requirement and are only compatible with a few people

Main differences:
OnS is more fantasy-oriented
OnS has better animation but is much shorter
WT is most likely aimed at a slightly younger audience
WT is lighter, and focuses more on the combat, strategy and tactics while OnS focuses a lot more on the relationships between the characters

Onigiri
To protect the world, the characters must work together to defeat the evil that has arisen. “Zettai Bouei Leviathan” and “Onigiri” have some type of unknown force that threatens the planet. Moreover, the characters in these anime are a bit dysfunctional with each other. However, as time goes on, they start to set aside their differences and work together as a team. Not only do these two have similar characteristics, the two shows don’t really take itself too seriously giving that comical feel you’d hope to expect. Also, they’re based off their own games. If you’re looking for a light-hearted fantasy anime that derives its source material from a video game, then these may be for you.

Both are magical girl shows that seem pretty cutesy at the start, but become more sinister as they progress. The magical girls are able to transform using their phones to fight enemies (Yuki Yuna) or each other (Raising Project).

Alice to Zouroku
Both have cutesy main characters. I was instantly reminded of Tsumugi when I started Alice. The dramatic elements are way stronger in Alice but both have very tender moments. Sweetness and Lightning has a lighter mood and is strictly more "slice of life" about food and Tsumugi being raised by her single dad. Sana in Alice is somewhat raised by old man Zouroku so they are similar in that regard as well.

Both are very sweet overall and get high ratings from me!

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku
Both magical girl shows seem cutesy at first and have a happy-go-lucky main character, but don't be fooled--they get very dark. Expect a lot of brutal plot twists and suffering for the characters. The theme of death is very present in both shows, and they get darker as they progress. There's also a cute-looking but super ruthless mascot character who basically pulls all the strings and makes the characters suffer by not revealing certain information until later. Recommended if you want a magical girl show that shows no mercy to the characters

In Raising Project, the characters transform into costumes and have different abilities, while in Mai-Hime, the characters are able to summon robotic beasts. As the shows progress, plot twists are revealed and they become darker and more dramatic. Losing your powers comes with a great cost, so the action can become very intense. Both are recommended if you like darker magical girl shows!
