Steins;Gate
Two works that surely share an eerie and uncanny feeling, related to the machinery and gadgets that drive the plot in the two stories respectively. However, there's still room for pleasant portraits of daily life and character development, that make it possible for the viewer to get really attached to the main cast. Both troubling, unsettling adventures with a tame use of a somewhat distressing, creepy imagery and a great use of pacing for enhancing the plot while it unravels to us viewers.

They both are the most dramatic and darkest in their series. Heck even for the cute girls as well. Except GODY: The Abyssal Fairy doesn't takes it's self too seriously and the violence is mild While ZKC: The Unlimited is a lot more violent and has puddles of blood. GODY: The Abyssal Fairy is less edgier than ZKC: The Unlimited.

Hunter x Hunter (2011)
Anime: Devilman: Crybaby
...then you might like
Devilman: Crybaby
Hunter x Hunter's Chimera Ant arc shares a lot of themes with Devilman - namely, the dark side of humanity and human nature. The dichotomy between good and evil gets blurred as the "evil" non-human beings display "human" traits such as love while the supposedly "good" humans commit atrocities that are just as awful as what they're fighting against, if not worse. There is also a strong undercurrent of anti-war sentiment.
Anime: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
If you liked
Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
Anime: Devilman: Crybaby
...then you might like
Devilman: Crybaby
The original Devilman had a pretty heavy influence on Yu Yu Hakusho, which comes through in several ways. Demon fighting is an obvious one, with lots of bloody close-quarters brawls that get your blood pumping. The thematic exploration of evil and human nature is another; being a main theme of Devilman, it is also touched upon in early arcs of YYH and later delved into more deeply in a later arc. Even putting the influence aside, exciting, intense action combines with likable characters and solid writing that makes both of these shows a lot of fun.

Rance 01: Hikari wo Motomete The Animation
Anime: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
...then you might like
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
Both shows are very comedic. The main similarity is the protagonist, Kazuma in Konosuba and Rance in well Rance. It's eponymous. Rance's character is able to carry the franchise alone. Both protagonists are young men, Kazuma is about 16 whereas Rance is in his 20's. They live life on their own terms. The difference is that Rance is able to get away with it better. Both shows occur in a fantasy type world but the protagonist in Konosuba is transported from our world to the fantasy world, Rance is not. Both men's actions could both be described as "questionable". Rance is basically Kazuma's character taken to the extreme. Whereas Kazuma is pitifully weak Rance is not. Rance is very strong which compliments his character greatly, although it's unfortunate for everyone around him. Konosuba has several developed characters but Rance focuses primarily on Rance himself and few others except maybe Sill. I can't believe I'm saying this but Rance actually has more of an overarching story whereas Konosuba is more episodic. Both shows focus mostly on comedy and there are few emotional moments. If you like Rance you'll probably like Kazuma and vice-versa. I enjoyed both shows greatly and laughed throughout. They are both worth a watch and Rance is only four episodes so it won't take up much of your time.

Darling in the FranXX
There are quite a few characters in Yugioh 5D's who are obviously heavily influenced by, if not complete copies of, characters from Darling in the FranXX(the most notable example being are Yusei and Aki, who are both similar to Hiro and Zero Two). Also, both happen to have similar styles of complex characters, and the plot of the story is slightly similar They both share one thing in commen and that is the post-apocalyptic mayhem started by the villains of Season from 5d's (Earthbound Immortals), while Darkling in the FranXX (Those Kaiju looking Dinosaur) Set in a future type of world with darker moments and lots of good scenes. Also, they have People in white cloths (Yliaster for 5D's) (Papa Leaders for Darling in the FranXX) And thier main Villan/Saviour is a robbotic looking fugure. The 5 five Darlings in the openings are exacltly the same to the Crimson Dragon Singers for the 5 good guys.

The primary characters are perfect replicas of each other. Without further ado we can deduce that Miss Monochrome and Drossel von Flügel are in fact androids with an obsession towards black and white color theme. Their AI as well is expanded upon learning more and more about humans whether it is done through direct interaction with them, as seen through the struggles of Monochrome trying to become an idol, or trivia given by their closest friend, robot Ruu-chan in Monochrome's case and Gedächtnis for Drossel. Because they are both short and episodic in content, don't expect much.

Although no romance is involved with Nanbaka (not even sure with Dame x Prince at this point), this two anime give me the feeling that you should never take it seriously. I equally enjoyed these two anime, but it just gave me the feeling that they are there to entertain you and let your day pass by quick. Nanbaka has plenty of characters that are pretty much so easy to understand like they are like that and sometimes they are overplaying it. I should warn you that the anime Nanbaka has some action scenes. Each episode is also filled weird random scenarios just like with Dame x Prince Anime Caravan. Main difference between these two, Nanbaka only has ONE female character and she is just a supporting character. You will be seeing male characters in each episode.
