Aoi Bungaku Series
Both Protagonist, Light Yagami and Youzou Ooba (until a few episodes) are very similar character design and personality because their designer is Takeshi Obata (Death Note's Art). Light is more confident and ruthless, Youzou is more gloomy and objective.
They had fateful encounter with each a person (DN's case is special), and themselves changed from that moment.
Both atmosphere have very dark (ABS's 5 to 6 episodes are humorous), and characters are intelligent. I like ABS's Run, Melos!-hen. Probably you will empathize with Takada.
Also, DN is continuous story, ABS consisted of plural literary novel as above.
Both are learned about humanity, and felt every emotion after watching the episode.

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV)
Similarities:
Both of the MCs have hidden, tragic pasts that turn them into cold, calculated, and close to emotionless badasses.
Thus, both the MCs are very strong.
Similar harem type concept in both hows with the girls in the harems also being special in more psychological terms.
Very similar art style and production, had to even check if they were made by the same studio.
Very similar twisted side of human nature shown in both shows, the distinct and powerful Grisaia type art is used in both.
Differences:
Youkoso is less fucked up and psychologically demented and ugly overall, at least by ep 7, Grisaia definitely takes that aspect farther.
Also no incest in Youkoso so far, unless imouto ends up getting raped by seitokaicho or some tragic past of hers is revealed.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
This series has a similar ending as Angel Beats. I should say Angel Beats was the saddest and one of the most touching anime when I watched it but Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso overtook it once I watched the last episode of it! It is really awesome and has very few or maybe no plotholes. If you are looking for an emotional anime with a good story and a strong musical connectivity, wait no more just watch Your Lie in April. And I can say for sure the suspense of "what is the lie" of the series is >= the suspense of the suspense of Angel and Yuzuru.

Anime: Carnival Phantasm
...then you might like
Carnival Phantasm
This is a comedy series that is primarily based off of two video game series from the company Type-Moon. Those being Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime. Before watching, you should first be familiar with the source material.

Like you were supposed to have played through Chrono Trigger before watching this OVA, you should finish some Type-Moon games before watching this.

So that means to play Tsukihime, Kagetsu Tohya, Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, and the Melty Blood series. It may be a daunting task, but you will gain an even bigger payoff from this than you will from just the one short OVA for Chrono Trigger.

Or if you're lazy/don't have time for ridiculously long visual novels like me, you could just watch the Fate/Stay Night anime (even though it is often not preferred), and play the first two routes of Tsukihime, and maybe play some Melty Blood Actress Again. With this minimal effort, you'll still understand a majority of the jokes and still have a great time!

Anime: Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni.
...then you might like
Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni.
Both anime demonstrate the life a teenager that has died and revived in a different world, having a wish (or the right to take something with them) granted.
In these TV shows the world is not modern; it has a medieval concept.
The protagonists are surrounded by beautiful girls.
There is magic in these anime.
They remember an RPG game: through time, the main characters learn more abilities and get items (they get stronger).
The protagonists keep a souvenir from their homeland.

I recommend both of these anime. I liked Konosuba because it made me laugh when I expected the least, and I'm enjoying to watch (it's currently airing) Isekai wa Smarphone to Tomo ni, because of the interesting abilities used by Touya (MC) and the girls' competition for him. Still, sometimes I consider Konosuba a little repetitive and boring.

- They have neet boy who is transported in a fantasy world, where the challenge will be to defeat the god tet / dark king, through different missions / games, where he will meet different girls, who will help him to acquire what he wants.

Both are good series of comedy to pass the time, where despite the pervert of the protagonist, will succeed in his ingenuity to overcome every adversity...

Anime: No Game No Life
...then you might like
No Game No Life
We love ecchi, don't we? But it's uncomfortable to watch an anime for solo desire to see naked girls. This is why anime such as Bakemonogatari and No Game No Live exists. Satisfy your needs for girls while feeling smart.
Decent amount of nudity can be found in both shows, buts they're much more than that. Problems the MCs encounter and the way they solve them requires pausing a video in order to catch up to whats happening. The nature of obstacles placed before protagonists and their ways of overcoming them can have an impact on how you view life.
To sum it up: even if you like neither ecchi nor harems, the intellectual element of these shows are good enough to watch them despite that.

If you liked
Seirei no Moribito
Anime: Ookami to Koushinryou
...then you might like
Ookami to Koushinryou
Spice and Wolf and Seirei no Moribito are both beautiful journeys in ancient lands (respectively Europe and Japan).
Both are about the relationship between humans and greater powers like spirits, gods, Nature... and how humans slowly forget about them (possibly at their own detriment).
Both are about the chance encounter between two characters from opposite worlds and how they come to respect and love each other.

MAIN DIFFERENCE :
Seirei no Moribito's main character is a mercenary who protects a prince. This series is thus one big adventure with one plot and many amazing fight scenes.
Spice and Wolf's main character is not a fighter, he is a merchant. This is more of a calm day to day journey with separate arcs every time the protagonists reach a new town.

- Both have a taboo scene(s) like hisoka can be seen as a child predator because of his obession with gon and in made in abyss the children are strung up naked when beaten

Rocket Girls
Two shows about a more contemporary, realistic, unglamorous side of space travel. Their protagonists generally do mundane jobs in Earth's orbit and work for departments with few resources and even less respect, although they all wind up getting involved with larger adventures by the end of their stories. Both shows have similar aesthetics and senses of realism but also veer into wacky comedy from time to time. Rocket Girls clearly has more of a moe influence, but other than the character designs of its leads and their ages (and generally age-appropriate personalities and behavior), one could easily see the two series taking place in the same universe at different points in time.

K-On!!
Despite how different they may look on the surface, Aria and K-On (as complete stories with all seasons) have essentially the exact same themes, and the exact same strengths.

- Both are ultimately coming-of-age stories about a group of close friends who realize that they will not be able to stay inseparable as they move towards the next stages of their lives (graduation and college in K-On and becoming Prima's in Aria). Both leave with the message that "though things may never be the same, you will always treasure the old days, and the here-and-now is fun as well." They both speak of cherishing every moment of life while it lasts, both happy and sad.

- Both have slow pacing and take their time introducing us to, and getting us familiar with and attached to the world and characters, but will eventually culminate in an impactful, rewarding payoff later on. Both show's characters are multi-faceted and incredibly lovable, and are characterized via strong visual storytelling rather than exposition. Both have characters whose past experience parallels what the main characters are going through and who use that experience to mentor and guide the main characters while reminiscing about how much that time meant to them (Sawako-sensei in K-On and Alicia, Akira, and Athena in Aria).

- Both employ subtle character development and detailed world-building to make their settings and characters feel alive, impactful, and special. Both rely on familiar places and events to instill a sense of nostalgia and show how characters are now compared to in the past, and they use it to employ an emotional undercurrent in many places. Both put the passage of time and the changing of seasons at a forefront (they employ Mono no Aware to be deeply resonant).

- Both series have writing by Yoshida Reiko, who employs dialogue that sounds natural and which is still entertaining, funny, and/or impactful. Both have moments of pure bliss, and both have made me cry on more than one occasion as the characters grow, realize what growing-up means, and move on.

- Both have practically no fanservice at all, and treat their characters with respect even the opportunity to be sexual arises.

- Both have some of the best insert songs ever, many of which are used during the best and most moving scenes of each series.

- Both are essentially tied for my favorite anime of all time, and both are masterpieces in my eyes which I'd recommend to everyone who can appreciate Slice of Life and doesn't mind slow pacing if it leads to a powerful long-term payoff.

- The differences are that Aria has an inherently more interesting setting with uniquely specific details and which gets more focus, is more soothing and relaxing as opposed to funny (though it is funny when it wants to be), has fantasy and sci-fi elements. K-On's school feels more detailed thanks to a consistent layout with connected locations which change appropriately as time passes, despite the fact that the school isn't focused on as much as Neo-Venezia in Aria. K-On is more funny, bombastic, and light-hearted as opposed to relaxing and contemplative (though it is those things when it wants to be), and is more grounded and realistic.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
This recommendation is mostly because of the directing and art of each show - Madoka is, at times, a toned down version of Monogatari in that sense, and the trippy art direction is something I consider to be a huge plus. Not to mention many of the voice actors that were in Bakemonogatari also appear in Madoka Magica and do a great job (e.g. Homura and Senjougahara are voiced by the same person). Granted, there are large differences in the plot and themes of each show, but I think that there are enough similarites there so if you liked one, there's a better than average chance you'll like the other.

Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
Bokurano and DS2. Both series have these similarities:
- The protagonists are chosen to acquire a certain skill, which will serve to destroy some enemies for the humanity, which, it is known how much they will appear.
- The protagonists have the risk of dying, every time they use their abilities
- The anime shows that fighting is the only option, since that will depend on the destruction of this world, by higher beings, who decide the fate of the Earth.

The series convey the feelings of the protagonists, in their decision to fight or not, trying to escape their responsibilities and at the same time creating an excuse to do so. It shows the psychological struggle of them against the people who look at them with rancor, since their powers brought death to humanity.

Mushishi
When I first watched Mushishi, among my first thoughts was: "This is a lot like Hell Girl". The similarities are listed below.
- Each episode is segmented, providing a short story
- There is a sense of darkness to the story (Although Hell Girl is darker)
- Both have supernatural elements, even though Mushishi tries to hide it under the pretence of pseudoscience

Other than that, there are some differences that might affect your experience
- The time setting differs greatly. Hell Girl is set in the present day, while Mushishi in some point in the past
- Half way through, Hell Girl shifts slightly towards a connected narrative between episodes. This is in part, the reason why I have slowed down my viewing of Mushishi, because there's little coherent connecting narrative
- Hell Girl is a lot darker, and a lot more tragic

This is the one show that went through my head while watching BNHA.

- Similar protagonists who start out shy with low self-confidence and slowly overcome it as the show goes on. Both use their intellect to win fights and overcome obstacles.

- Both protagonists have a role model which drives them to push themselves to their limits. They both idolize their role model, but with Simon it's a younger/older sibling relationship whereas with Izuku it's a fanboy/superhero relationship.

- Cast of fun, goofy characters which aid the protagonist or cause him conflict on his journey.

- Great writing which manages to draw out emotions from the audience regardless of the depth of the concepts and events which the story puts forward.

How can the smallest of details affect the experience you serve someone in a cocktail or a bowl of tea? Ryuu and Sasuke both aspire to provide the most enjoyable drink for their guests. From minor adjustments to the temperature of the drink to the orientation of a tea jar's lid, the factors that make for the optimal glass or bowl are explored in great detail, organically complementing the stories. While Hyouge Mono has a little action and politics (which are, granted, also explored from a perspective of aesthetics), both series take their time to construct beautiful interactions between a true aesthete and their guest.

Both feature all female lead characters who get involved with top secret operations. One fights witches, while the other engages in espionage. Although staring very cute high school age girls, they both deal with very dark subject matter and heavy moral obligations; the difference being Princess Principal was more upfront about it. The biggest similarity would have to be in the character personalities and motivations. Much like every character in Princess Principal is different and has different reasons for joining, each character in Madoka are very different with different motivations. Watching them all try to work together despite these differences is what makes both shows great.

The only difference is that Valvrave is the reconstruction of the tropes deconstructed in Code Geass and Gundam IBO continues the trend of 00's deconstruction of the Gundam tropes.
