Blend S
The lead male and female characters and the relationship between them are very similar, to the point where I'm pretty certain that the author of Blend S was directly influenced by Soushi and Ririchiyo from Inu x Boku when creating Dino and Maika. In both series, a somewhat masochistic, light-haired bishie falls in love at first sight with a much younger girl who has long dark hair and purple eyes, but struggles to make friends because of her unintentional cold/sadistic behaviour. Their relationship is just limited to teasing in Blend S, but in Inu x Boku a romance eventually develops.

Insane characters; Norse Mythology references; A sprinkle of metaphysics: Time Travel (in Steins;Gate) and Norse Myth Fairies (in Durarara!!). If you liked any of these aspects in one series, you'll most likely also enjoy the other. Also, there's the "same voice actor" bonus: Mamoru Miyano and Hana Kanazawa

Both shows center around a main character that has come to a new city and finds themselves surrounded by a unique set of individuals. Both animes are also set in cities where things that would be crazy anywhere else are just another day there. Both have action, comedy, and intresting characters. The feel of the Blood Blockade Battlefront also reminded me of Durara in that the plot gets better and more complex as the show continues. In my opinion Durarara is the superior show, but both are worth a watch, so if you like one you should check the other out.

Two of my all-time favorites. Both of these take place in a dystopian society where the masses fail to either notice or care about how completely they are controlled. Our main characters see through their utopias and recognize truths that eventually come to undermine the systems that the societies are built on. Both are serious, dark, unpredictable, and try to tell a more intellectual story to communicate strong themes about the future that we might be facing in our own world.

Harmony
It's incredibly hard to watch one without getting hints of the other; I think it's near impossible that Harmony wasn't at least in part inspired by Ergo Proxy. Both have stubborn, naïve, determined, ‘younger’ female lead characters seeking to uncover/unmask a deeper truth about the dystopia that they live in, the dystopia that only they seem to see or at least care about. With Ergo Proxy being one of my favorite anime ever, Harmony amazingly got close to hitting that mark still feeling unique in its story, setting, and overall themes. For those anime fans like me who love an immersive story that makes you think in new ways, both are well worth your time. If you liked one, I feel safe guaranteeing you’ll like the other.

However, there will always be those who do not agree with "utopian standards", as well as those with secrets and/or alterior motives - as both titles well portray. On a side note, the main protagonist in both Harmony and Psycho-Pass is a young woman.

Join the castaway princess and the late bloomer as their world suddenly takes a dive into the unknown starting with their coming of age. Not only do they both focus on similar themes and lessons about the darker side of human nature but the plot has a similar flow to it as well.

Watch as they mature and grow from their childish selves and become the person they want to be in these 2 tales full of twists and turns on the path to unraveling the truth.

Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitenshabu
Minami Kamakura has the same formula as K-On, in terms of moe-girls in CGDCT daily-living, and doing club stuffs; juz that K-On is on light music and its theme as well, whilst this anime has cycling. The charm is that, both shows utilises real-life brands: K-On! has Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, and Korg showcased on the show; while Minami Kamakura has like, Cannondale featured, for example. Regrettably though, Minami Kamakura was made by JC Staff, who didn't seem to know what they were doing. Thus, what you might have expected on this anime about cycling, wasn't all focused as much as it could have (like, what hybrids, mountain bikes, or road bikes are; you know, cycling elements since K-On did manage to impart some music instrument stuffs like Yui's Les Paul; or Azusa's Mustang).

Well, let's be honest here. Do you like love hardships? But sometimes likes to see a little more cruel side of reality? There you go, here we got two fantastic slice of life animes that never failed me to put me into tears from time to time. They differ in regards to their respective plots, and yet they both undergo through schemes of human nature thus putting in the spotlight loneliness, guilt, and selfishness. Dont get me wrong, they are not that much of realistic, in Orange we get to see a "timewavy space continum" thing that I won't explain here for you to go watch it first. Still, nonetheless if you feel like crying over some selfish waifus that cannot easily let themselves love a seemingly generic husbando then you should watch it. Now.

-Both show same-sex romance (One is shounen-ai and the other shoujo-ai) -Doesn't follow the rules of what shounen-ai/shoujo-ai anime would usually do,having the relationship a 'Uke-seme' type of style. -Instead in both animes they show a neutral status in the relationship. -Things the two couples do aren't portrayed as something only a same-sex couple could do, Instead they are portrayed like your average everyday couple. -Both have beautiful art and calming sounds.

The Project I.G. signature is all over the place. Using the elements of Ghost in the Shell to depict the investigation by "dog hounds" against perpetrators human or machines, the home virtualisation tool similar to the one in AppleSeed are just mere example of the depiction of its signature. The setting is very similar to GITS as well and technically this the best Production I.G. work which started on the TV screen with Patlabor and GITS.

Gantz and Btooom! both have people who are thrown into a survival game against their will. They are both psychological shows with lots of action, violence and gore. Both main characters were not the best people in their regular lives but through out the shows they start to develop and become better people and they become more strategic and used to the situation they’re in. The protagonists almost kind of look like each other as well. The people in the game have to use the weapons they are provided: bombs (bims) in Btooom! and high tech power suits in Gantz. The difference is in Gantz, the people have to fight against these aliens and in Btooom! the people fight each other.

Infinite Ryvius and Bokurano are both mecha anime that center around a group of children who are suddenly put in a dangerous situation where they have to survive and fend for them selves. They are both psychological and dive into the minds of these children and how the situations they are in take a toll on their mental state. Despite all these children being in the same boat, there is conflict and drama between them which sometimes makes their situation worse. The scale is different in these shows though. Infinite ryvius has hundreds or even thousands of kids stuck on a ship in space while Bokurano focuses on a small group of fifteen kids to pilot one big mecha.

Both shows are historical seinens that depict violence in a similar and brutal way. Both can be comedic at times but serious and strategical when they need to be. They both can be highly exaggerated at times. Both shows also deal with war and different factions fighting against each other to reach some sort of goal. Both protagonists can be funny, but can turn into cold blooded killers at the flip of a switch. Both protagonists go through near death experiences but always survive to see another day. The difference is that Drifters is more of a fantasy with powers while Golden Kamuy is more grounded to reality.

Dystopia, war, and cute kids are just some of the key things From the New World and Now and Then, Here and There have in common. They're both outstanding shows for a start. But there's also an adult melancholy that hangs over both their stories, belying the cutesy character designs and hinting at something much more serious and profound. If you enjoyed the complex tragedy of one show, you will really enjoy the other.

Although both anime differ greatly in terms of plot, there are a few striking similarities. 1. The protagonists are all children. Most part of Shin Sekai Yori, anyway. 2. The children of both anime are plunged into a cruel conspiracy created by the adults of both worlds. As both anime progress, we will soon realise the truth behind the cruelty of both worlds. 3. In both anime, the children are given special abilities to fight with. In Shin Sekai Yori, the children's psychic powers will awaken when they come of age (i.e., mainly telekinesis). In Bokurano, the children were given robots to pilot.
