I made this not because "ZOMG! DIS IZ A MUHDOWKA REEPAWFF!" but because of its similarities with PMMM which made me get interested in the series. 1. Kind pink decoy protagonist with an exceptional potential who keeps her optimism till the end and banishes the horrible system of magical girls. 2. Long black haired gunner who has a crush on the main protagonist and is the first one to find out about the nightmarish magical girl system. 3. Red tsundere who eats a lot. 4. A music themed girl who foreshadows later events (Sayaka joking about Homura's past in episode 1 and Itsuki uses her tarot cards to do that). 5. Yellow mentor who recruits magical girls, acts lonely and suffered from a mental breakdown after seeing the music themed girl suffer, attacks red themed girl and is stopped by the decoy protagonist. 6. Mascots pretending to be cute in order to manipulate the girls and thinks what they are doing is for everyone's benefit despite letting the girls suffer for the sake of doing so. 7. Monsters that normal humans are not being able to see and create bizarre areas.

Violet Evergarden
Both main protagonists are titular protagonists, with the story being focused on character progression and development via their experiences with different individuals with differing strifes, struggles, and issues. Both main protagonists seek to understand themselves better, as they both are not good with understanding or expressing emotions, or even just understanding themselves in general. Both tried to find a new reason to live. Violet and Casshern both had to bear and deal with the sins from their respective pasts, knowing that none of that will ever disappear. Both of them have tried to commit suicidal acts due to almost having lost hope of finding a purpose to live. Both Violet and Casshern are highly feared by other people/robots due to their expertise in combat, and both have held back from trying to kill if possible, though Violet absolutely tries everything to not kill her enemies as opposed to how she did in the past, whereas Casshern WILL kill if necessary, and may go "berserk" as well. Both series have similar formats, showcasing a different character with a different personality and/or ideal/issue nearly each different episode, and ends off with a final closure on both protagonists. Both shows display some of the most pristine and gorgeous showcasings of animation qualities. Both shows explore a world after war, though Casshern's world is post-apocalyptic, while Violet's story is based off post-WWI settings. Finally, both series have very grim and heavy themes, though Casshern Sins, being in a post-apocalyptic setting, is a lot darker and heavier, centered around the idea and concept of death and dying, while Violet Evergarden focuses on a story of loss after war, and is relatable with former war veterans.

Zombieland Saga and Punchline both have ridiculous premises that have a nice blend of comedy and drama. Both shows can be pretty sad when it counts, and pretty hilarious. In terms is story, these shows are not similar, but it’s the uniqueness and absurdity of both the stories that makes them similar. Zombieland Saga is about girls from different time periods being resurrected as zombies to become idols for saving Saga prefecture. Punchline is about a main character who turns into a ghost, and if he sees panties, his nose bleeds, and the world blows up. Punchline also has a time loop thing going on. Both have a very clean art style and nice animation. They were also both made by studio MAPPA. I would say the over all styles of these shows are the most similar, and if you watched one, you would probably like the other.

Anyway, Wolf's Rain has many more characters, more action, and a more complex story.

Fate/stay night
Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
...then you might like
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Both are Studio Deen visual novel adaptations from 2006. Through these adaptations (mostly Fate/stay night which can readily be compared to ufotable adaptations) Deen established a reputation for dodgy animation, inconsistent quality from the VAs/seiyuu, and a palpable lack of care for the source material, with strange pacing and enough cut/ignored details to make an observant watcher wonder if the scriptwriters actually read the VNs. Both also have soundtracks made by well-known composer Kenji Kawai, though this is often not known by viewers until they look up the OST later. Both developed defensive fandoms rather quickly, though Deen Fate/stay night's reputation plummeted as soon as another studio (ufotable) began seriously adapting material from the Fate series. If Higurashi ever receives the same treatment in the future (as unlikely as that is) I'm fairly convinced that Deen's adaptation would be dumped by the wayside in a similar fashion.

Both are first and foremost fairly gory thrillers featuring a multitude of mentally unstable characters. Higurashi's resident yandere was the face of the archetype until Mirai Nikki's Gasai Yuno usurped that position. While Higurashi is slower pace-wise than Mirai Nikki, they end up giving similar vibes, as they have many plot similarities and handle their mysteries in a similar fashion (the sort of mysteries the studios didn't want you to think all that much about because the way these anime are adapted leaves a number of inconsistencies & holes in the plot, though this is much more easily apparent in Mirai Nikki).

Both shows are "Magical Girl" anime that explore darker themes than other shoujo, such as death, responsibility, violence and divinity, alongside the usual friendship and occasional romance. While Sailor Moon is a light-hearted villian of the week show that gradually gets darker with every season, Madoka Magica is a twist on the genre that takes shows such as Sailor Moon and skips the filler and goes straight for the dark stuff. Both Madoka and Usagi serve as the watchers self-insert into their worlds, although Usagi presents much more personality and relatability than Madoka does. These series have great supporting casts that steal the show. If you liked Madoka Magica and you want to know the influences on the show, if you wanted more romance (either straight or yuri), and to basically enjoy a classic anime to lighten the mood, Sailor Moon is a great choice. And if you liked Sailor Moon and want to watch an anime that emulates later episodes, if you need action instead of romance, and a more macabre version of your favorite group of heroines, Madoka Magica is the one for you.

Both of the anime has a lead male that serve as protector of the lead girl character. The girl characters have quite a lot of similarities between their personality, their appearances and their own quirks. They both are kinda short with long hair, like to eat sweet foods, has a short temper, smart and knowledgeable, always complaining on the male character and even kick them in the leg for saying something that they shouldn't have. Both anime also has sorrowful theme songs for opening and ending that can let you feel the theme right away and reach into your heart. Both are set in the post-war era where there's still parasol and horse carriages around. Gosick has a deeper approach on the story with the explanation and the logical thinking of how the mystery works while Dantalian no Shoka involves more of a supernatural suspense coming out of books and some more interesting characters. Nevertheless, both anime show the bond between the 2 lead characters and the adventure that they share as they walk together into the deeper unknown.

They both look a lot and low at the same time. The two shows are about a protagonist who has an incredibly strong power. Its main differences are that in OPM focuses more on the action and the fights and has a great animation with a story. Since Saiki does not focus on fights, in fact as far as I've seen he has not presented any fight, but he focuses a lot on the sarcastic humor and the interaction between the characters. In general, the two are recommended, but OPM was made to be frantic and have many fights and Saiki Kusuo was made to be calmer, I recommend watching one episode a day. Note: Saiki Kusuo does not have 120 episodes of 5 min. On most of the streaming sites it is featured in 24 episodes.

Shinsekai yori
So you're interested in a story about a society with psychic powers. Ok. But you'd like those powers to have rules and downsides. Sure. And maybe there's a power-struggle between those who have power and those that don't. Absolutely. Well you just described Toward the Terra and Shin Sekai Yori, both stories about cultures that seem like they're well-adjusted and maybe a dash utopian but are turned on their head by the young, well-meaning but inquisitive protagonist. Both have heaping handfuls of action and conflict, but what sets them apart is the shades of gray morality. You'll find that people do bad things for good reasons, and vice versa. It's difficult to pinpoint who's the true evil, and that makes for a dynamic cast and a storyline that will draw you in. Set some time aside, because once you start you'll want to marathon until the end!

If you enjoyed those darker tones, you may enjoy Puella Magi Madoka Magica, another popular magical girl series with similarly dark tones, very cute magical girl outfits, and notable soundtrack (headphones recommended!).

Both plots develop in the meta space of Korakuen Hall. Now, seriously, both series have similar characters, even though the sport of both shows drive them to pretty different developments, since boxing is a sport that consist mostly of being better than the other sportsman on the ring, this allows a relationship of deciding who is the most strong and intelligent boxer between both participants, while competitive dancing is more of having an intense synchronicity with your partner, this allowing relationships that are built on a foundation of trust and fellowship, sometimes even love. The humour is also very different, but both are hilarious shows, Ippo being a lot more vulgar and over the top, while Ballroom's being a lot lighter.

Remember the time when you created your first female characters in a RPG? That full plated armor from your male character...when worn on your new female character it left half of her skin and you wonder how such armor can give equal defensive value as a full plated armor. This trope is called bikini armor and even appeared in games such as WoW in the good old time. Both Bikini Warriors and Otono no Bouguya-san are a parody on this phenomenon called bikini armor and fantasy gaming in general. Also both anime are fantasy anime and have short episodes so they don´t waste a lot of your time. So enjoy looking at women wearing sexy armor. The main difference is that Bikini Warriors is more action while Otona no Bouguyasan is just about about showing the bikini armor in a shop. Bikini Warriors is also more ecchi.

What's the truth of the world? The protagonists in both the series seek the answer to this question. The worldbuilding in these 2 series is unimaginably excellent. These 2 series take place in a world full of secrets and lies. They focus on supernatural mysteries and are deep and highly logical. There are lot of revelations that might leave you shocked. They share a similar eerie and dark atmosphere. It's interesting to see characters make deductions and strategies. SNK s3 is waaay better than its prequels. Music is exceptionally excellent. Art and background scenery is awesome. There will be interesting theories and philosophies.

It's interesting to see the characters make deductions and strategies. You might come to know that there were hints in the prequel but you missed them or things you thought to be less important turn out to be a key to solving the mystery.

Both are high school anime focusing on a main character who has the desire to help those around him, especially his closest friends. For every arc is a new supernatural event that occurs due to a problem that one or more of the characters is experiencing, yet has been hiding from the others. With this supernatural event the character or characters involved cannot hide themselves for very long, otherwise they'd suffer very terrible consequences that could harm not only themselves but those around him/her.

I wasnt planning on using the "similar recomendation" thing but seems like im forced to do so , i put Fate/Zero for 2 main reasons : 1st both shows have a large roster of well made/developed characters and all of them have some importance in the overall plot and 2nd both shows become absolute awesome in their respective second seasons. And here's why you should watch this amazing show : 1:The show is able to handle and develop a roster of about +30 characters at the same time while giving them some self-scenes , also everyone of them is important in their own way , you basically feel like they are all independent individuals with their motivations, pasts , etc. 2:Since this is spoiler free i wont give any context neither i will say what happens but in the end of the 2nd season , every character who's been developed for 45 (aprox) episodes are part of what i think is the best scene i've ever seen , taking the scene literally a whole episode. 3:1st season is good but nothing special overall , but that entire season is basically a warm up for all the good stuff thats coming on the 2nd season , if you can enjoy the first season , you will love the entire show once you finish it 4:Koro-sensei

Strawberry Panic, much like Yagate Kimi ni Naru, also has one of the characters being the president of the student council. Something that I enjoy about each of these shows is how little annoying drama there is apart from a few understandable characters. Strawberry Panic can be seen as a little outdated, but I recommend giving it a shot.
