There are some similarities regariding the characters
Adagaki is the tsundere character (Chitoge)
Yoshino is her servant (Tsugumi)
Neko is the "rival" that appears out of nowhere (Marika)

In addition to this, the MCs have stories related the past: Adagaki and Masamune were friends 8 years ago, but she doesn't remember him, Neko and Masamune knew each other, but he doesn't remember. Does this ring a bell? Yes, the keys and the promise from 10 years ago in Nisekoi.

Also the setting is similar (but there are no gang/yakuza wars) and the shows share the comedy tag.

Someone talented and free-spirited comes along and decides to help the protagonist do something amazing that they didn't believe they were capable of before. This person that comes along teaches the protagonist how to be confident and try new things. Both animes have a romance aspect, but Yuri on Ice is more prominent towards the storyline (and it is between two male characters). Either way, both of these animes will not fail to disappoint.

Both contain yandere characters. Both have gore. Most importantly both are a disservice to their respective source material. Did you know that Keiichi from Higurashi regularly cross-dresses? No? You wouldn't know that from watching the anime because they try to cram 10 hours of visual novel into 2 hour segments by cutting out most of the plot; it's like the cliff-notes of anime. Meanwhile Mirai Nikki doesn't feel too rushed, but it totally changes the mood of the manga; all of creepy things Yuno does are played off as fanservice. In summary, read the VN before watching Higurashi, but if you liked Mirai Nikki, you're going to love Higurashi regardless.

Gintama
Anime: SKET Dance
...then you might like
SKET Dance
Gintama and SKET Dance's structure is extremely similar, that may be due to the fact that SKET Dance's mangaka was Sorachi's (Gintama's mangaka) assistant for a while.

Both of them involve a main cast of 3, the leader that's usually lazy but when it comes to it he's the most responsible one. (Gintoki and Bossun) The girl that's the power house of their group (Kagura and Himeko) and the smart otaku. (Shinpachi and Switch).


The overall structure of the show is similar, it's mainly comedy but there are those serious dramatic arcs that develop the plot and characters more.
(SKET Dance's manga is the main source of it's dramatic arcs, the anime replaced 1 or 2 of the dramatic arcs with it's own comedy arc based on the arc it replaces).

Both help people who request help from them except one does it voluntarily to push positivity (SKET Dance) and the others do it as a job. (Gintama)
One is a high school club and the other is a poor business.

Shelter
After watching Flip Flappers I could not help but notice how similar it is to Shelter, as if it took direct inspiration from Shelter (hear me out).

Both anime feature innocent, at first, female teenagers that explore an alternate reality completely unaware, at first, of why this reality exists.

Later on, the protagonists from both series discover the nature of their respective alternative worlds and both anime leave the viewer with open ended questions that don't affect much post-anime reflections. In addition, both anime focus on themes of love (family and friendship love) and parental bonds.

Shelter is much more emotional and focused on ambience, while Flip Flappers is more friendship-y and focused on visuals.

If you liked Shelter, I am sure you will like an extended version of it, which is Flip Flappers.

Both are trapped in a fantasy world/video game rpg settings with a primary focus on parody, satire, and comedy in general. The main character of Ixion Saga accidentally falls on an antagonistic character when arriving in the fantasy world in episode 1 and inadvertently becomes feared as incredibly strong. He bands together with a party of misfit characters who all have irritating or endearing quirks that seem out of place for them. A strong muscly man who loves cute creatures, a transgender man-to-woman who somehow has massive boobs, etc. Also both series feature some wonderfully sloppy art and animation that really adds to the humor. If you like the comedy in one, there is a good chance that you will like the other.

I've seen too many recommendations saying "If you like Madoka, go watch Yuuki Yuuna" And true, YY is good, and similar to Madoka, but it's VERY similar. I want to recommend something that has it's fair shares of similarities and differences, and I'd personally say Ikusei Keikaku is much better than YY anyways.

Madoka Magica and Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical girl rising project) are both dark spins on the magical girl genre, though admittedly MMRP is much more graphic in it's violence than Madoka. They both have some pretty lovable characters, nice plot twists, not so subtle lesbian love, feels, and character deaths you'll never forgive.

Madoka is my favorite anime ever, so I can't say this is as good. But it is pretty damn close. In fact, as it stands now it's my third favorite anime.

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku is criminally underrated, and I'd recommend it over Yuuki Yuuna is a hero to Madoka Magica fans any day.

ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka
From the same original author, Natsume Ono. Apart from the story itself, they are totally different genre, although both contain a bit of slice of life in it, I can see them heading totally different direction.
However, there is noticeable similarity inside the character design, especially the male character. If you enjoy characters with mysteriousness, 'Ristorante Paradiso' is also going to be an enjoyable romance for you.

- Centered around 3 girls
- They are in a club together
- Art is moe (kinda but not too much like "Is The Order a Rabbit?") and the colours are more bright and shiny

Danshi Koukousei No nichijou
- Centered around multiple guys
- They go to an all-guys school
- Art is more plain and simple; the colour is more bland

Both
- Both get caught up in unrealistic, wacky situations
- The story revolves around the daily lives of high school students
- Both are like the pot of gold of comedy
- There are unique characters that probs don't exist in real life, let alone in high school
- There's at least one character who is (if not a bit) "normal"

Watch them. You'll laugh your buns off for a week. And then you'll go back to your sad life called reality.
I feel you, bro.
