In my opinion its more slice of life like then Kotaro Lives Alone but I still feel like whoever enjoys one would probably like the other too. They both have main characters whose parents aren't present in their life, and an older character who takes care of them. In Gakuen Babysitters its two brothers and one is in highschool while the other stays at the school daycare, which the older brother is a club member of. I'd say characters aren't really similar in personality though.

The answer is not clear cut at all. While there are enormous facts pointing to two different worlds, there are several facts pointing to one single world. However, this could just be a coincidence if it was a joined but separate world, meaning that the two Saya's (Main character in both the series) are different people. It is clearly stated that Saya is not the girl's real name in Blood-C, that it was just a name given to her by her captor. There are other recurring characters in similar roles throughout the Series as well. Still, overall, the stories are quite different and have their own unique elements.

Boku no Hero Academia
Do you like superheroes? Well if so, keep reading. There are many types of superheroes: - Some who got their powers because of an accident - Some become heroes of their own right - Some become superheroes after they were originally a bad guy - Some become superheroes after a tragic past And so on, and so forth. In my opinion, it's actually weird for me to recommend both of these in the same light. But see, here's the thing. Both of these, despite their differences, have one thing in common: Exploring what it REALLY MEANS to be a superhero. First off.. One Punch Man, is a story about someone who became a hero.. for fun. See, every villain he ever faced would instantly be defeated (or die) because of his punch. One punch. Because of this, Saitama feels like life is already done for him, thus the emptiness starts to kick in. In the world he lives in, villains appear left and right, some weaker than others, some even stronger than others, but nevertheless, Saitama never got beaten... or will he? See, Saitama, is in many ways like Goku (from Dragonball). He clearly loves to fight, he gets a kick out of it. Which is another reason why he became a hero. One Punch Man explores what it feels like to live life all over again, and what life can be, and how it can be. Emptiness and boredom is lethal, even if you are having fun right now, sometimes you just can't help but feel.. empty again. Well, One Punch Man explores that. Many of the stuff I want to talk about are spoilers, so I'll just leave it at this, if that's you're cup of tea. Go ahead, watch it. But if you already did, then... My Hero Academia. This one, unlike the all-powerful Saitama is an underdog. Do you know Robin from Batman? Well, even he would be sad for Deku. See, Deku was born without any sort of quirk, basically powers that manifest after a certain period of time. He's a fan of superheroes, and he also wants to be like them. He's basically YOU, if you're a superhero fan. Now.. let's face it. Shonen can feel samey, but in my honest opinion, My Hero Academia has something to offer. Something else to offer, mind you. See every Shonen character wants to be something, some more skillfull than others. But Midoriya or Deku is something you can like because HE'S REALLY TRYING. And it's engaging to see that. There's more to this anime than meets the eye, believe it or not. Most of it spoilers so I'll avoid it, but nevertheless.. What does it mean to be a hero? Well, I'll leave that question up to you! I highy recommend these two anime, especially if you've watched one of them already. Comedy can be somewhat different for both of them, but I think it's the message that can give you a worthwhile time. Watch them, try them, I highly recommend them. Go ahead, be a hero!

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai
Few shows have ever touched up the human psyche. The feeling of emptiness even when lives goes on and continues. Life can be funny but it can also feel sad and alone. We laugh to keep our hopes up but never once do we dream of failure, but when it does, it's how we handle it that makes it matter. In my opinion, Bunny Girl Senpai and Angel Beats have that feeling. These two shows borders the line between the comedic parts of life and the sad parts. Each character you get to know on a personal level, which matters considering the "why" they were even introduced to the show in the first place. Some people in these shows have a "something". Without any spoilers, of course; these "something" let you know these characters on a more intimate level. See, life can be happy. But these characters feel like they're living life the way we live it, by persevering. Life can be a burden, not just because of the way our life is currently, but because in my personal opinion, even those we carried in our past hold us down. We idolize people, we look up to people, we even want to be like others. But life just doesn't follow wishes, it gives it to people when the time is right. Even happiness. I think if you're looking for something that can pull your heartsrings while also giving you a good time, ala comedy via the communication and exchanges between the characters; these two anime can do it for you. Just be prepared, I guess. Because you might shed tears even before you know it. PS: Ever wondered why we meet friends, why we get annoyed by them, but yet we stick by their side regardless of their shortcomings? Okay, just asking. Anyways, look these anime up! Highly recommend.

Rainbow is a much more comradery anime with a leader uniting everyone together, whereas Evil or Live has a power dynamic/struggle within the school -- with both students and instructors. Rainbow is done much better than Evil or Live, though.

Grand Blue
These shows are great comedies about groups of friends hanging out, and if you enjoyed one of them, I'm sure you'll have a great time with the other. While Daily Lives is set in highschool, Grand Blue is set in college (but it focuses a lot more in the diving club), and it honestly feels like the characters in Grand Blue could be a grown up version of characters from Daily Lives, they definitely have a similar feel to them.

Banana Fish
Banana Fish and Elfen Lied are dark, sad anime about horrendously abused children trying to escape from the patterns and lifestyles they were brought up in. Unfortunately, as the characters fall in love and try to better themselves they also find themselves falling deeper into darkness. These stories can be very disturbing at times but remain poignant. They both come to a close with somewhat controversial endings, but I think each show does a really interesting—albeit very different—job of exploring if someone can truly be doomed from birth.

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Ultra Romantic
Now I know what you're thinking. How on earth could Kaguya-sama, a parody romcom, possibly be remotely similar to Re:Zero, a psychological thriller isekai? Well thats because Kaguya-sama isn't just a romcom. Kaguya-sama is a romcom that starts out as a comedy and turns into a psychological seinen masterpiece. This series is a masterclass at writing compelling characters that you just cant help but root for, and Re:Zero is the same in that regard. Anyway here's the bullet points: - Both series has a huge focus on psychology (depression, anxiety, gratification, self-worth) - Both series have well-developed characters that are focused on self-improvement (Miyuki, Subaru) - Lots of suspense and exciting moments. - Characters that start out as the underdog and slowly builds up reputation (Miyuki, Subaru) - The idea that one should hide their true self. This topic is explored in both series.

Another great and underrated slice of life. Focuses on a group of girls rather than a girl and her "dad", but both shows share the same wholesome and comfy vibes. Plus the OPs are done by the same singer so if that doesn't let you know they are in the same category I don't know what will.

Two close people living as their relationship are compared to the story books brought into life as a major plot point. Liz and the Blue Bird is more enjoyable if you are already familiar with the relationship of the main characters from the main series Hibike! Euphonium from a specific arc, whereas Giovanni's Island can be more impactful if you are not familiar with the story of Night of the Galactic Railroad at all.

Deaimon
Themes that stood out to me in "My Roommate is a Cat" were regret over the relationships with family members lost, and how to make new relationships to overcome that regret. "Deaimon" has a similar theme, in that a character is often brooding over the loss of a relationship and is being nearly prodded and dragged into new relationships, not to forget the old relationship, but to help heal the wounds. "My Roommate is a Cat" happened to use a pet as the new relationship and portal to more new relationships, while "Deiamon" has a fully human cast.

This series also features eccentric characters whose lives coincide when you least expect them to.

There's a particular focus on the development of the characters' individual plotlines, and side characters can be elevated to star status at a moment's notice via impeccable character writing.

You will more than once see situations wherein antagonistically-positioned characters passing each other on the street (whether the characters themselves know their position relative to one another or not) and engaging in b-plots that either convolute or advance the underlying main plot. There is a shared focus on introspective and philosophical dialogue, and both series features beautiful artwork and animation.
