Sayonara no Asa ni Yakusoku no Hana wo Kazarou
SPOILER ALERT FOR MAQUIA Maquia and Wolf Children both deal with the hardships, struggle, love and care through the fantasy genre of mothership and maternal love. Where as Wolf Children's conflict comes through Hana having to raise 2 impossible children who possess both human and wolf traits, Maquia shows the relationship between an immortal girl raising a child who is inherently not her own. Both seem almost majestic by showing what is essentially at its core a grounded and heart felt relationship between mother and children, with the struggles of growing up, yet also being set in a believable fantasy world. If you love Wolf Children, or want a realistic fantasy to cry at again, you owe it to yourself to see Maquia.

To echo what the others said, both are sequel series to a previous show (a previous show which showed two friends/rivals growing up together and achieving their respective dreams more or less) and then their children in this sequel series facing the pressure from their parents, while also branching off to the opposite parent's path and making an identity of their own. Major 2nd is more realistic with a focus on baseball while Boruto is about ninjas and fighting though.

Great shows chocked full of in-your-face sexual euphemisms and great action sequences. Both deal with self-expression and the desire to break free of societal bonds regarding sexuality.

IDOLiSH7
The idols in both i7 and im@s started off as a rookie who's struggled to achieve popularity--but when they finally reached their peak, that's only the beginning to more conflicts as they finally learn the true purpose of being an idol. Not only that, but being challenged by fellow idol groups (TRIGGER, Jupiter) from a rival company that held grudge towards the main characters' company (Yaotome Production, 961pro), the small competition between the popularity of smaller units that became the starting point of the whole group's popularity (MEZZO'', Ryuuguu Komachi), both of the plot in i7 and im@s explored more on the near-realistic side of the idol industry, as they also focus on the aspect of character development and teamwork.

Grancrest Senki
Do you enjoy fantastical rules that affect the setting as much as the cast? Armies and political intrigue as common spices to your fantasy adventures? What about observing the plight for an unassuming ruler to rise and do their part for their people? Both anime in question provide these surreptitious, zesty epics with relish. Twelve Kingdoms, arguably a masterpiece in its own right, offers more diversity in its setting and stories, encompassing multiple exposures and journeys. Record of Grancrest War, being based on a table-top RPG, feels more indebted to classic fantasy/epic thus concentrates on that core conceit, Suikoden-style (rise-to-power fanservice)

Do you like stories of noble, romantic conquest? Epic-style armies resting their lives down because of good guy heroes proclaiming his will for the people? Some light political intrigue as a buffer for the plight that is to come? Both of these titles should be serviceable in the above mentioned. Utawarerumono, being based on a visual novel, has an undercurrent of harem elements to it; cute girls aplenty with most of the downtime about cute antics. Record of Grancrest War, in true spirit to its table-top origins, leans heavy on stock cliche characters playing out their roles energetically, but cliche nonetheless; an easy recommendation for the genre buffs out there.

Believe it or not both series are quite similar in the beginning in terms of how main character acts and feels. In both series the main character at the start of the anime is looked down upon and they were bullied in the past which makes them bit awkward, yet adorable in a sense. After that there is character development in which they gain self confidence. For me it's one of the reasons I like both of these series very much and you might, too!
Anime: Guilty Crown
If you liked
Guilty Crown
Anime: Darling in the FranXX
...then you might like
Darling in the FranXX
Despite Guilty Crown having a love-hate relationship with practically everyone who has ever watched it, for some reason, Darling in the Franxx really reminds me of it. Maybe it’s the characters. Or heck, it might even be the central plot per se! Guilty Crown may not be one of the best anime out there (due to the fact that it somehow leads its second half to ruination), but its premise is really interesting. Its story development is leaning on a “nay,” but its visuals and sounds are very noteworthy! In fact, the best thing about Guilty Crown (at least for me) is its musicality. To this day, I still vividly remember its opening theme song as well as its various other soul-chilling tunes. If you ever decide to watch this show, there’s a considerable chance that you’ll experience disappointment during its second half. However, everything is relative. Don’t let prejudices sway your decisions. Give it a try, and judge for yourself!

Houseki no Kuni (TV)
Both animes are about a female lead who begins as the weakest among a class of fighters and evolves through constant hardships to become among the strongest. Boiling the plots down to once sentence, they are the same. Both heavily feature revelations about the past, though Claymore has a greater focus on the backstory of the main character while Houseki has a greater focus on the backstory of the world. Both take place in an alternative world, although Claymore is more medieval while Houseski is more fantasy/futuristic. Both involve a motivating relationship between the main character and a supporting character who is not involved in most of the action but is always present on the main character's mind. In Claymore, the supporting character is a weak male while in Houseki it is a powerful girl. Overall, if you enjoyed one of these, there's a high probability you will enjoy the other, though you might not see the similarities until halfway through the season.

But everything changes when he does against the chiefs orders and saves a kids life instead of the mayor. I won't really say anything else, but this is the first episode of the anime. You follow Tenma trying to find the kid that he saved, figure out who he is and try to kill him. There are also amazing side characters and everyone is developed nicely. There are not too many characters in the anime.

Plastic Memories
Story and character wise, time of eve is better, but the music and art are far better in plastic memories. Both have to do with a society where androids are a common thing, and all types of people have them. Plastic memories however, has a timetable on androids, they have a lifespan where when their time is up, they start to stop working and lose memories and functions, which isn't relevant in Time of Eve. Plastic Memories is more of a romance, with a less dark tone, and doesn't have a lot of character development compared to Time of Eve, plastic memories focuses more on romance, and time of eve focuses more on relationships between androids and people. In plastic memories the majority of people have an adoration for androids, and people falling in love with them isn't as uncommon as you'd think, meanwhile in Time of Eve, the minority of people have an adoration for androids and are looked down upon by the general public.

Both are fantasy/adventure stories about young, renowned, skilled, determined and bad-tempered wizards who set off on a quest to accomplish some mission along with a group of friends they meet in their way, in a setting with a medieval feel. If you liked that blend of adventures, magic, spells, swords, dragons, action and humour, with this typical 90s charming earthy-like color pallete and beautiful, detailed background scenery, then Orphen is a safe bet.

Both are episodic comedies from the 90s about skilled exorcists/ghost hunters, that make use of a monster-of-the-week formula. None of them may have any major ambitions whatsoever, but they are both very entertaining if watched with the right mindset, with likable casts and funny situations. The comedy in both at times can be lewd and raunchy, but it never falls into obscenity domains. The main difference has to do with the fact that in Jigoku Sensei Nube there is a relative overarching story regarding Nube's past that is tackled at some of its episodes, which deviates from the light-hearted general tone of the show, while Ghost Sweeper Mikami is fully episodic and comedic.

Similar plot device for time travel, small little sphere object, both have stunning visuals, although the art seems more original for toki wo kakeru shoujo because Uchiage Hanabi, Shita kara Miru ka? Yoko kara Miru ka? is super similar to the monogatari series, even for the studio being the same, the main characters are almost the exact same of the monogatari series. The Girl Who Leapt Through time did much better at executing the time travel and romance aspect, the romance between Nazuna and Norimichi basically consists of them falling in love in literally 1 day, and the romance between makoto and chiaki is very wholesome, they've known one another longer and makoto tries to deny chiaki and uses time travel for that, meanwhile norimichi uses it to keep trying to be with nazuna. Overall though the resemblance is there, however, the Girl Who Leap Through time is far better.
