Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai
Both have very harem like feels to them, however the main guy has a girlfriend in both. That girl is the first girl that he helps in the series. In both series, the main guy is helping girls with their odd supernatural occurrences. The main girl character is mysterious, calm, and not quite tsundere- but still snaps at her boyfriend sometimes. The main boy character is quirky, sarcastic, laid-back, and blunt. They both say odd things that make people surrounding them confused. There is a smart girl in both series who has a sensitive undertone. This has caused her to take on two forms, one for each of her personalities. Both series also have a younger girl who looked up to the main girl character, but her emotions have made the two even more distant. Both have a lot of quirky dialogue and rely heavily on interactions between the characters, especially the main two. However, Bunny Girl Senpai seems to have more of a grounded plot and focus. Monogatari runs wild with its themes and often is very abstract. Bunny Girl Senpai clearly was inspired by the latter.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon
I'll get it out of the way- I'm aware that Naruto is aimed more at boys, while Sailor Moon has more of a girl demographic. HOWEVER- I believe both shows are okay for both genders to enjoy, there are different aspects in both that boys and girls would like. Both shows have a lot of fighting and action. The characters each have special moves and techniques that define their character. Both have a silly, blond haired protagonist. They tend to be the most laid-back and goofy character in their group, but they are willing to step up to protect their comrades when necessary. That same protagonist grows during the series. They mature and become wiser with experience. Both of the main characters even have a catchphrase! Naruto says "Believe it!" and Usagi says "I'll Punish You!" Both series are fun! However, there are emotional and more serious moments to both. I find them both fun to binge, and you can watch both with younger kids.

If you liked

Anime: Alien 9
...then you might like
Alien 9
Both have young kids fighting foreign creatures. It is their given duty to do so. Both have a very cowardly and sensitive protagonist. That protagonist is terrified of what they are supposed to be fighting, and tries to avoid it when possible. There is also a main character in each show who is very enthusiastic to fight and takes pride in it. That becomes their downfall in the end, however. I compare Alien 9 SPECIFICALLY to The End of Eva because there is a scene in the last episode of Alien 9 that felt very inspired by the latter. I'll give you a hint- they both involve choking. Both have a sad ending that almost felt unfinished. Both have lighter moments, but the show in its entirety will make you feel uneasy. They are both bleak, unsettling, but have lots of creative merit.

The two series have a similar world, a similar set-up for conflict, characters with similar traits and circumstances and are largely character-driven. In both stories, two sides (nations in EnD, an empire vs. a union of nations in AZ) are fighting a war over resources. One side can't feed its people due to environmental circumstances of the land they inhabit. One side is technologically superior to the other due to a mysterious energy source available only to them. Thus they have more powerful mechs while the other side has strength in numbers. There's an idealistic, peace-loving princess leading one of the waring nations, being more of a figurehead than an actual ruler. Said nation also has strong chivalric values that the other lacks. At the heart of both series are its dual protagonists. There's one on each side of the war, giving us insight into both sides' motivations, reasons and methods for the war. Both protagonists are sympathetic. One of them is emotionally upfront while the other doesn't show their emotions, though there are subtle (or not so subtle, depending on the series) hints to what they're feeling.

I am hard-pressed to write out an actual recommendation here; probably doing this more so to present a suggestion to Key fans. There isn't much to say other than both of the series are the same anime in my opinion, just in different clothing. My reason for mentioning Key fans (though this suggestion can be for visual novel fans as well) is that the original stories of both of series started out as visual novels, whether you knew this already or not. It's difficult for these anime series to compare to original content (obviously) and while the visual novels are less convenient to obtain as quickly as loading up an anime streaming site, they will deliver the full "Key" essence and provide much more "feels" respective to each series; especially considering each character has their own "route" (each with a plausible amount of character backstory that adds to the feels) as opposed to the anime adapting to a canon route of which not every anime/VN fan would agree as that route/route's "girl" being the one they'd truly choose.

...then you might like
Psycho-Pass
Aside from being masterpieces of the psychological genre, both series are set in a cyberpunk world and include plenty of thought-provoking philosophical moments and exhilarating action to keep you at the edge of your seat, especially in the later episodes. In short, what truly sets either of these series above the average anime and makes the other absolutely worth watching if you wholeheartedly enjoyed one, is how there is neither black nor white characterization and character morals, in addition to unpredictable plot direction... By the end of the series (particularly in Psycho-Pass imo) you may end up rooting for what you (as the viewer) believe is the best course of action for the respective content's humanity, as opposed to what is "justice" or some commonly accepted ideology. Find out for yourself; enjoy!

Violet Evergarden
Both series are very similar in terms of structure and theme. They both involve letters that are the embodiment of the heart and thoughts of the person, have the protagonist as a postal worker of some kind, and tell emotional stories involving the letters and their senders or recipients. Both have differences though. Tegami Bachi is about delivering letter, while Evergarden is about the writing of those letters. Tegami Bachi is more shounen adventure/fantasy based while Evergarden is more grounded in reality. The protagonist of Tegami Bachi, Lag Seeing, is very emotional while Violet starts off as very stoic and unemotional. However, the core concept of emotional stories involving "letters of the heart" is so deeply integrated in each series that the differences just serve to make them distinct from one another rather than separate them completely.

Both Sound! Euphonium and A Place Further Than The Universe seem to be typical cute-girl slice-of-life shows on the surface, but in reality they are heart-felt coming of age stories that go well beyond slice of life anime (not that there is anything wrong with that genre). If you look closely, you'll notice that neither of these anime actually have the "Slice of Life" genre tag listed for them on MAL. Both are about reaching for a goal which first seems unreachable: turning around a school's concert band program to be the best in the country, and being part of an expedition to Antarctica.

Hunter x Hunter (2011)
If you like shounen anime with likeable characters, frequent power ups, and great fights, this is the show for you. Why I recommend HxH: - Every aspect of chakra (Nen for HxH) is explained. How they gather it, focus it, use it; the general mechanics of their powers is explained in detail for both anime - and this is something to be appreciated. - Most fights are well choreographed. The MC in HxH is generally far more tactical than Naruto, so the fights in HxH in general are more tactical in nature -- especially the big fights. Note: Hunter x Hunter does start off slow. Their powers don't begin to arise for quite some time, however stick with it and you'll enjoy it. I highly recommend this anime.

If you like Sakamichi no Apollon/Kids on the Slope, then I think Beck/Mongolian Chop Squad might be right up your alley. Both series are about young people performing music and growing as a result of their exploration of the art. They both work as coming of age stories, with characters in both plots becoming different people by the end of their respective narratives. Beck is a bit more gritty than Kids on the Slope as it takes place in the mid 2000s and focuses on young rockers trying to make a name for themselves. It isn't quite as visually charming but I still found it to be well done for the time in which it released. It's also longer at 26 episodes, but it starts to go a lot faster the deeper in you go. I wholeheartedly believe you'll enjoy Beck if you enjoyed Kids on the Slope as both series explore the performance and love of music as a way of developing lasting social bonds. They may have a different feel to them but the themes of friendship, growing up and changing oneself are strong in both anime. Both shows teach us that music can help us change and grow as people.

Of course these two are similar because they are both your standard, vanilla harem show, but what what makes them noticeably connected is the main male leads mentality. Both are very studious and value education more than your typical youthful fantasies, especially the idea of falling in love. They share this sentiment largely because they want to help their family financially. The art styles are both surprisingly unique but similar to each other. Boasting bright pastel colors and giving the female characters bold hair colors that really make them stand out.

(Contains minor spoilers below) A lot of common points, both purely physical / visual and also related to the story. Futuristic universe (this one shows up some combat airplanes with a futuristic armament & design) ; main character with pink hairs (can't miss this detail) ; strong growing up relationship between her & the other male character Main character having an issue to pilot (in Ditf : a mecha ; in GAF, an airplane) until the male character appears, etc For now, many more similarities but I won't spoil. Just consider GAF is a younger (meaning closer in the time from reality) scifi anime, showing up air fights, strong male/female relationship, etc

Both are "edutainment" anime that use humor to educate its audience on real concepts. Hetalia focuses on history while Hataraku Saibou discusses biology. Though Hetalia has an overarching WWII storyline and repeating gags, like Hataraku Saibou, Hetalia can be picked up at any episode due to its episodic formula.

I think that Yuri on ICE and Koisuru Boukun is very similar as they are both in the yaoi genre and both have a growing romance between the two leading males in both animes. Both animes brought me to tears! ( but im just an emotional guy :P) and even though Koisuru Boukun is a much shorter anime than yuri on ICE, it still has a similar story depth when it comes to the romance portion. So go give it a try <3

The obvious comparison is the fact that there is an orgasm almost every episode over something people normally don't have orgasms to. one more thing that's similar are the mind games, not sure if i'm remembering right but most of the time you never hear what Souma or Yumeko are thinking, instead it's the tag along (Tadokoro & Suzui) that have a game going through their head and going into a panic over what is gonna happen and how Souma/Yumeko is gonna win this. you also see the thoughts going through their over confident opponent and how they go into total madness when they realize that they will be absolutely BTFO'd.

Both of these shows have a combination of sweet and innocent moments but before you know it turns on its head and turns disturbing fast. You will be standing on your feet for much of the scenes wondering what is going on and what will eventually happen. They like to delay the darker moments and you can differently feel the fear the characters of both series are experiencing under different circumstances. Both shows follow a group of children trying to solve a mystery. The characters have a similar feel around them, and the shows are of the same genres (Horror & Mystery).

My first impression of this anime : 'This feels awfully like Attack on Titan' There are three main protagonists like Eren, Armin and Mikasa. They were surrounded by wall and trying to escape it (Although the wall doesn't play that big role in here like in Attack on Titan does). There's also these human eater creatures. Also I think Eren say something similar about them being trapped inside a wall like cattle. Well, in this case they are literally the cattle. I'd say there are also Death Note feel to it, but I lean more towards Attack on Titan.

Both anime are about the relationship between a human and a cat and the story is told from both their points of view. Both human characters, at the start of the story, don't like having a pet that much (little Miyu from "Kanojo" was about to leave her cat, Daru, behind), but as the story proceeds the bond between them grows stronger.

The MC of Desert Punk emphasizes that you need to be merciless in their world while Trigun's MC emphasizes pacifism. - Trigun's MC has more of a complex background

Both stories revolve around a student who hide their identity as heroes. The heroes have similar friends.They both are challenged by villains/rivals and always win. They both have a mask/helmet and cape as their costumes and both are cartoons loved especially by kids. Both the shows have 25min episodes and have similar ratings (slightly above 6). However, Perman is older and in it's plot there are other supporting heroes with lesser known villains. In Mighty Masked Niyander, Niyander is the only hero with his sidekick , a birdlike creature named pidori.
