Tamako Market
Both series revolve around a group of high school students that shows the bonds of the characters throughout the show. The art styles are fairly relative, and a couple of the characters remind me of eachother, especially Mocchizou and Taichi, and Nagase and Tamako. Kokoro Connect, however, is a series that'll tug at your heart-strings, while Tamako Market is more of a laid-back comedy. Both series definetley has its light moments, and I enjoyed both of them a lot.

Both have the same atmosphere. Similar (simple and elegant) designs, besides sharing mature themes.

In both we find industries in difficulty (Rakugo on one side and the dictionary-making on the other).

The pace is similar and both have timeskip.

The two main protagonists of each show are similar: One more extroverted and the other more introverted. Overcoming the differences they help each other as coworkers and as friends.

Although the period is different you will have the same realistic feeling seeing these two shows.

The crucial difference is that Showa Genroku is way more dramatic.

Days (TV)
Crazy that no one has recommended this anime yet.
In both animes the main character is a newbie in the sport they are playing. They both end up playing for prestigious teams due to the coach seeing special potential in them. They are both first years. They both decide to join their teams because they want to play with a specific talented person. They both run a lot in the beginning of the anime. They both inspire the other teammembers their year to run a lot.
They both play in tournaments, they both meet prestigious teams and newbie teams.

I could go on and on. Basically Days(TV) is just a shorter version of Diamond no Ace with football instead of baseball. If you like both sports I believe you will enjoy both :)

I think someone has mentioned this before, but I think Colette was inspired or similar to Dekomori. They even share the same seiyuu, or voice actress (Sumire Uesaka).
[Colette is known to hang out in lockers throughout Konobi, which I think is a reference to when Dekomori was stuck in one in Episode 3 of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!?]

If you liked Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai then I think This Art Club Has a Problem! should be your next watch.

Barakamon isn't about parenting which is one of Usagi Drop's things, but there are tons of similarities nonetheless.

I personally preferred Barakamon to Usagi Drop as the former showed a bit more character development but the difference isn't massive. Good shows both and worth a try even for people who normally don't care for slice of life

The two have a similar atmosphere, the story is composed in a similar way, where the main character help people with their problems and repeats the cycle, and although episodic, the two have a fixed plot that doesn't change in every episode, like episodic series could make). There is a little "harem" in the two, where the main character is loved by more than one girl.

The main character in the two are quite similar, the two being normally in calm and reflexive, the kind of "hero of justice" that looks for the happiness of everyone but sometimes a little pervert (although Araragi is much more than Touma).

The two are good ones and I think everyone who has watched Monogatari, Index will remind them from it.

Drawn by the same animator, Freedom and Akira are on different ends of the mood scale. While Akira is very dark, moody and mind-screwy, Freedom is upbeat, positive and still somewhat mind-screwy. Also, the best advertisement for Nissin Cup Noodles I've seen since a CG'd Freddie Mercury.

3-gatsu no Lion
Can't help but get similar vibes to Your Lie in April when watching March Comes in Like a Lion. Both have a protagonist who is struggling with depression because of the death of his loved ones and both main characters have a complicated relationship with their passions (Shigatsu has music, 3-gatsu has shogi), but these passions are not the main focus of the shows. Also, both protagonists meet people who change their lives for the better.

3-gatsu no Lion has more unique visuals than Shigatsu due to the very different animation studios. Also Shigatsu wa Kimi no uso has way more romance (3-gatsu being a more of a slice-of-life series), but anyone can feel the similarities while watching one after having seen the other. Both are touching dramas that serves as a memorable experience for fans of the genre.

Even though they're completely different genres (other one is a satirical comedy/sol while the other is supernatural harem series), they have similarities as how they are presented. The art (especially background art) is all SHAFT in both of them and both rely on witty and fun dialogue more than action. Both anime have the same voice actor as main character and is used in similar way on both of them: Main character's inner voice can be read from the background (In SZS from the chalkboard and in bakemonogatari from the flashing colorful frames). They way both of these anime reference many things from japanese culture is kinda similar too.
