Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru
Both shows are very similar anime in more than just a simple few ways. One of the most obvious similarities are that they are both magical girl shows, and both have tragic, almost depressing themes thrown into the mix. Yuki Yuna and Madoka Magica also have characters with similar personalities, and while they are not direct copies of each other, the similarities are there. However while Yuki Yuna is a bit of a tragic take of a magical girl show, it is not nearly as dark or as hopeless as Madoka Magica, which is a show that takes it a lot further. Yuki Yuna is more of a mix of typical magical girls with a tragic twist, while Madoka Magica is a much darker show with complex writing and themes. Due to all these similarities, I think that if you liked one, you may enjoy the other as well.

These series utilize similar tropes and concepts.

Let's start with the main character, where in both series, the main character is usually looked down upon; that's one obvious similarity, but there's more to it than implied.

Aside from that, it seems these series have a similarity in which they interweave comedy within their story-line, as well as being self-aware of the cliches that they may be using.

Both make a beautiful analysis of the human emotions and relations between them, and harem btw.
Both are so deep in the development of all the characters, that even Freud would have quote in his Id, ego and superego apparatus.
Let's be real, in both of these shows, the main character will try to overcome something that haunt him since his youth, often related with love of a newly met girl. So they have an inner debate on who do they really love.

Both take place in a town called "Kyoto". Uchouten Kazoku and Kyousou Giga both are anime where humans and supernatural species co-exist. They can be comedic at times and serious at other times. While they do have multiple entries on MAL, both anime are fairly short and are not time-consuming.

I highly recommend Uchouten Kazoku if you liked Kyousou Giga and vice versa. They are both enjoyable anime because they focus on bonds, family, and friendship.

The artstyle are very similar with the surrealistic drawings that draws you into the scene; very detailed. The stories deal with a normal world and another vaguely explained world. The way everything works is not put in front of you and requires you to activate your brain and think things through; maybe even doing research. The stories are very powerful and both activate emotions very easily. The biggest difference is how Clannad takes the emotions very far and toys with your heart, while Kimi no na Wa takes simple steps to trigger a lesser level of sadness.

Which one is better?
Well, I give both of them 8/10. It just depends on people's preference as well. It's like POT have a lot of episodes, so they mixed of practice at the court, setup summer camp, and after school activities instead of purely focus on practice and tournament.

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.
Whereas the two series aren't even close, their relativity could be on characters.
First one, the main character, Okabe, kind of reminds me of Hachiman for his lone personality, half-chuuni humour(in between Steins;Gate's will and the 108 Skills of the Loner).
But the true comparison I would suggest is Yukino and Kurisu, whereas one is from America, graduated from college and the other is in firs-year of highschool, both are geniuses. As well, both are in someway tsundere (perhaps also kuudere) ; romance exists in between them and the main characters of respective series. To wrap at it, Kurisu and Yukino both seem so weak and alone, which make them all the more cute (somehow more for Yukino because the story has a tendency to dramatize).

One doesn't simply question the Unlimited Budget Works.

All jokes aside. If you are a fan of the following genre you might consider investing your time on this two series. Plot, Epic OST/BGM, Fantasy, Overpowering, Having two characters doing two different things in a linear time-line of a video without splitscreen(Both Log and Fate do it without killing your head don't worry), Know what is going on but don't really know what is going on. Yes that a genre.
You can just use a that little perception of yours and still understand what is going on but not 100% sure that is really behind it or go full deep analytical digging every single details and still end up not 100% sure what is really behind it.

Continue to prove that most powerful weapons is breaking the story. Sometime it's the "game rules", sometimes is the "glasses". (SAO and Log Horizon respectively)

Both have good Soundtrack/BGM and OP.
But SAO BGM and OP is good enough that it's better without the anime. I listen to SAO OST before getting into anime and is it was epic. No opinion on OP.
Log Horizon OP song is so good it doesn't need or possibly can't have a better OP song. BGM of SAO is better, but you will get sick after a few days or weeks after overdosing. Not the case with Log Horizon BGM *and OP* where overdosing ceiling is higher.

I rated Log 10/10 because I just can't stop watching it. I can't explain why 10/10 but 9/10 is too low. Maybe 9.5 9.7?
SAO is 2/10 is because I 90% of the time I forget the whole setting. So much for excepting it to be a "Video Game". Also the missing chapter 16.5, like why not lol it's already a mess. 2/10 out of respect for everyone behind the BGM and Yuki Kajiura for proving quality BGM for many other of my top anime|OST such as Fate series (Ufotable) Kara no Kyoukai and Madoka Magica.

Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun
May this recommendation be not that obvious because Hakkenden: Tōhō Hakken Ibun has an very interesting base material in Nansō Satomi Hakkenden by Takizawa Okikuni (pen name: Kyokutei Bakin) and Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru is a Japanese shôjo manga written and illustrated by Odagiri Hotaru. Nevertheless both share some aspects beyond the demographic "shôjo". Even if the art style is different, but the Bishounen characteristica they have in common.
May the setting be different. In the case of Hakkenden, former times with demons and Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru is in present time with Psi-powers. On the other hand both share themes like action, drama, slight romance, sword fights and fantasy elements.
Odagiri-san ended her Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru (UraBoku) The Betrayal Knows My Name manga, a good time to remind you of that still a little unknown Anime. I am a bit sad about that because it is an interesting story, good animated and real good music (BGM/OP/ED) that underline the emotions perfect.
Both anime have interesting plot lines and stories that take a deeper look on emotions and motivations of its characters, and still be able to handle a good balance between comedy and an entertaining seriousness. Moreover they don`t exceed the line to shounen-ai.

School Rumble and Acchi Kocchi are both about a girl who is seriously in love with a guy, but just can’t seem to confess her feelings to him. The male love interests in the two anime have very similar personalities: emotionless to the point where it actually becomes funny. Both heroines have seriously WTF hair styles: Tenma has her small twin-tails that twitch up and down to show emotion, while Tsumiki has her spiral hair antenna that is longer and crazier than the hair antennae that’s pretty common in anime. Much of the comedy in the two anime is slapstick, and they have similar amounts of it as well. But while School Rumble contains multiple love triangles, Acchi Kocchi’s romance is mostly just between Tsumiki and Io.
