While testing his 8mm camera at night, Kaito Kirishima is caught amid a mysterious explosion in his small town. Strangely, Kaito wakes up the next day perfectly fine, but with no recollection of what exactly happened the day before. Unfazed by what seems to have been just a dream, he heads to school not giving much thought to the incident. Discussing with his friends about the camera, they decide to make a movie during summer break. They invite two upperclass students to participate in the project: recently arrived Ichika Takatsuki and the odd Remon Yamano. In a strange twist of fate, Ichika starts living with Kaito as his sister has to work overseas. Summer days are about to get exciting for the small film crew.

Moe adolescent girls? Checked. Mouth-watering food? Checked. Epic eating scene? It's not extreme as Shokugeki for sure, but its hella nice show. Koufuku Graffiti surrounds a girl and her cousin enjoying the saying, "What's good to eat?" with various culture cuisines. Pizza, fried chicken, and soba noodles on a summer's day. I request watching this if you want to adventure more food p o r n. Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san mainly focuses on ramen and our ramen-fanatic Koizumi-chan. Only a few witness her teachings and gulp along with the ramen goddess. Slurp, slurp, slurp!

Cowboy Bebop
Anime: Onihei
...then you might like
Onihei
Similiar detective noir style and story telling. Each episode is an unique enclosed story, that playfully unwinds character backstory. Even one shot or background characters are developed with a story. The narrative is a good balance between hopeful and realistic, the idea of a gritty world lampshaded by a kind Roguish MC. The fight scenes have good flow to them similiar to Cowboy Bebop. Humour style is gentle and narrative focused, rather than punchline and slapstick focused. The art/animation is good with the aesthetic of a Edo Period Cop drama anime being quite fresh. Jazz soundtracks provide tension at the right moments, similiar to Cowboy Bebop. Overall any fans of Cowboy Bebop will enjoy the atmosphere of Onihei, whilst enjoying a more buoyant and more light-hearted flow, whilst still providing good grit and realism.

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV)
Despite being driven by logic and progressing the plot using plenty of technical and theoretical details, both anime drive our attention to the psychological tendencies of characters and their way of interacting with their environment. Each story takes place in a reclaimed territory (Youkoso -- Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, Kiznaiver -- Sugomori City), processing some kind of a special plan for advancing society (being world peace in Kiznaiver, and highly educated students with guaranteed university admission and employment in Youkoso). Consequently, the main setup of the plot are (teenage) main characters who try to deal with the challenges and trials imposed on them from above by a powerful system. The main male characters resemble each other in their behavior and speech expressing a low range of emotions, and share a seemingly similar past which, assumingly, brought them to be the way they are currently presented. Finally, Youkoso and Kiznaiver both have a colorful, clean graphic style with high quality visuals. Those who enjoyed either of them apparently would like the other one, too.

To begin with, both are more brain & emotions focused rather than spectacle anime. Both are moderate on their topic (time travel for Steins;Gate, fall of rakugo for Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu). Both get honest and mature in their serious parts. Moreover, Rakugo also features some truly remarkable use of anime powers to empathize some aspects of Jap. culture (expressiveness and being able to place the camera in impossible places and jump seamlessly. And does it even better than Steins;Gate. Also, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu features some truly remarkable characters and is quite educative on post-war Japanese culture. Both tend to ask some deep \ philosophical questions once in a while. --- As some of my friends imply you might need to seat through first 1-3 episodes to begin deeply enjoying Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.

Devilman: Crybaby
Both titles are based on 1970's manga from Go Nagai. They both have a similar dark and gritty tone with lots of blood, gore and gratuitous nudity. The main protagonist in both Devilman: Crybaby and Shuten Douji are thrown into a life of darkness and must save humanity from demons. If you like one, you should enjoy the other.

There is nothing quite like Nichijou. It is on a whole other tier of humor, quality, and uniqueness. That being said, so is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun! Both of these anime are truly sublime slice-of-life that fill you with an unprecedented joy and levity, truly some of the best slice of life anime. Both contain that wonderful unique humor that is guaranteed to lift you up and comfort you, while also containing a great amount of heart and beauty. I turn to both of these series when I'm feeling especially lost in life or feeling really down, and they always make me find myself again. Ahh, both of these are truly masterpieces!! I hope you enjoy :)

Two cute stories who share the same theme: cooking with your loved ones. The frame is also similar. At the beginning of the story, the protagonist is used to eating alone and can't enjoy it anymore. Then, they get closer to someone around them who comes to help them cook and find pleasure out of it. In the end they always find themselves cooking and eating together. Each episode features a new dish cooked by the protagonists, while listing the process step by step. If you like good food or cute and simple stories in general, these two anime are for you.

Both main characters are trapped in a game where they are as OP as a God. They enjoy more their life in the game than the real one. Also, the story seems to go in the same direction.

Knight's & Magic
Both main characters try to make a new type of super weapon. While Heavy Object focuses more on war with other humans+objects, Knights and Magic is more fantasy themed as in fighting monsters with the help of magic. Heavy Object also has more romance and humor in my opinion.

Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta.
both are about high school students and their love stories. The two animes are about first love, with several interlaced love stories. also, their genres are similar and both have a romance with a bit of comedy. one more similarity is that the two animes are about shooting a movie for a film club. in my opinion, because Kimikiss has 24 episodes, its story and characters develop better than the Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta.

Houseki no Kuni (TV)
Mahoutsukai no Yome and Houseki no Kuni both explore themes of guilt and existentialism. However, they explore them in different ways, which is ultimately why this recommendation is so consequential. If you enjoyed Houseki no Kuni, you likely won't enjoy something that treads the same ground, but instead you'd probably enjoy something that approaches it in a new way.

This is a bit of an odd recommendation for me to make. The reason I'm making it is simple, I have only ever liked two anime for their plot. Steins;gate and Houseki no Kuni. That is the reason I'm making this recommendation, because they're the only two anime for which the plot is strong enough to hold them up (I also want to dethrone Shinsekai Yori from the top recommendations related to Houseki no Kuni) BTW: These are two of the only three anime I'd recommend against dropping at all costs. Even if you're not particularly enjoying these, you can't get the full picture without finishing them.

Both stories are, of course, set in high school but there's more than that. The main characters share experiences: making new friends in a brand new school, adventures to find a truth or build a relationship, and a good opening... Both shows also focus on a 'minority' group of students (geniuses? in Youkoso and kids w/powers in Charlotte). Also, I watched them each in 3 days... what am I doing with my life...

The mystery in both series works the same way. They both give extreme thrills as the main character goes through obstacles to discover the truth. There are lots of chase scenes that remind me of each other. Not only that, both series have similar style of art and music where it's very traditional/classic and revolves around myths and stories. They are both incredible mystery/sci-fi series.

Despite different settings (Code: Realize taking place in steampunk Victorian England and Hakuouki in 19th century Japan), they had quite a bit in common. Both shows tell us about genious scientists disappearing and their daughters searching for them, joining forces with group of mysterious men. Both Hakuouki and Code: Realize are anime adaptations of otome games with good, solid plot and nice romance.
