Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic
(Both anime can be watched without needing to watch the original series.) Twin Angel Break and Luck & Logic fall into the magical girl genre. The overall experience of both is pleasant and light-hearted. The two might pull at your heartstrings a bit, but nothing over the top that would ruin positive feelings both shows have to offer. In terms of main characters the anime star two female characters that have similar personalities. One who is normally quiet, studious, and serious yet sweet on the inside and the other who is more fun-loving, socially out-going, and cheerful yet always loyal to her friends. Together both characters don't initially get along at the start, but their friendship develops over time. Expect both to have transformation scenes, a cute pet side-kick, and a colorful supporting cast held within a school environment. Differences: In terms of watching the first few episodes Twin Angel Break may come off as underwhelming whereas Luck & Logic might come across as overwhelming however the middle and end of both will feel much stronger than how they both started out as. Twin Angel Break has a good vs evil plotline whereas Luck & Logic is generally slice of life. On the contrary, both bring up the conflict of character vs self as a common element between the two. Twin Angel Break I'd recommend to younger viewers and people who might be new to anime since common anime tropes show up infrequently and lighter than would be expected. Luck & Logic while I emphasize is just as light-hearted may require a bit more maturity given it humor and how it can dip into yuri territory here and there. In conclusion both are in the magical girl genre with an overall cheery mood throughout and main characters sharing similar personalities.

The setting is similar, dealing with gods and traditional Japanese mythology. The overall feel is very similar, very light hearted with little life lessons along the way. The show is verrry moe, with tons of cute girls doing cute things. There's a similar soft yuri vibe in both series, with hinted romances.. Though Konohana leans a bit more towards it. Even the main characters are similar, somewhat ditzy but pure of heart and making friends with everyone. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other!

JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Stardust Crusaders
I know that this rec could seem strange since it seems that K-on and Jojo are in complete opposition, but I still cannot think about one without thinking about the other and here is why : - In both you follow a group of friend in their everyday lives. Jojo SC1 has a lot of slice of life moments (that makes everybody say it's boring while I greatly enjoyed it), you see the lifes of the 5 guys of the group doing their activity : that is travelling and fighting. In K-On you see the girls in the music club having fun. In both sides, there are slice of life moments. - There are also many elements of comedy in both : JojoSC1 is way more comedy-oriented than the other Jojo parts. K-on is basically a comedy - Both titles features in majority a group of people of the same sex (girls in K-on, boys in Jojo) with exagerated expression (moe in K-on, GAR in Jojo) - Lastly, the more important in my opinion, I enjoyed both series in the same way : I wasn't just watching friends having fun or travelling, I felt like I was literally taking part of their group. I was living an adventure in Jojo, I was having fun in K-on I know this recommandation is strange, but if you liked one, there is no reason to dislike the other since they share SoL and Comedy, without romance (the Action in Jojo SC1 or the school setting in K-on can turn down at first but it is greatly enjoyable nonetheless. Also both have a lot of memes on the Internet

Osomatsu-san
Both shows employ a similar manzai-esque boke/tsukkomi type of humor, although Senyuu's is a bit snappier due to the briefness of it's episodes. Both feature a cast of deeply flawed yet very likable characters. They are both upbeat laugh-out-loud comedy anime of a distinctly Japanese style. The obvious differences between them would be Senyuu's fantasy setting verses Osomatsu-san's real world SOL setting, and Senyuu's plot driven nature verses Osomatsu-san's episodic nature. Still, they both give off a similar feel.

The Autumn Selection tournament arc is abounding in JoJo references, and executes them to great effect. It could be subtle, such as when Mimasaka could anticipate his opponents' next move as menacingly as a JoJo villain would. Or, it could be as blatantly obvious as both Megumi and Kurokiba's dishes manifesting as Stands to "Ora-Ora" it out, just as Star Platinum would against an enemy stand. In addition, there's a lot of third-party exposition-dumps occurring from the sidelines and opponents explaining themselves in both series. In my opinion, Food Wars does this a little better than JoJo, because it makes me appreciate the science behind cooking a lot more (plus there is no physical combat that would otherwise be interrupted). However, I do appreciate how JoJo uses fight-commentary to add to its over-the-top nature. Both the Stand Battles and Shokugeki feel epic and high-stakes in their respective series, so if you like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, you will also like Food Wars.

In Zettai Shounen, there are these glowing bright lights which interact with certain characters. The lights aren't typically the cause of any problems, but more of a thing that some of the characters in the anime show great interest in and try to study. Both shows focus on the interaction between characters along with the study of a supernatural being, and as a plus they both have great music.

It is very similar and I'll explain why, both have excellent Light Novels, full of mysteries and the good part are that they are not predictable. Both anime have the main characters driven by their past, where they got harsh trainament, in kamito case he was an assassin with no emotions at all, until he met Restia, while Raishin had his entire family assassinated by his older brother. Then both met an old around 40 years woman, who gave then more and more trainamente and later a chance to them remake their mistakes, in Kamito's case he became known as Ren Ashbell, the strongest Blade Dancer to date and Raishin got Yaya, the strongest Machine Doll in the world. Then later both join a sort of academy with will allow then to join a tournament and they will meet new companions and create a small Harem of sorts, but both protagonists are not interested in love and always avoid the girls cringe scenes. And lastly both have great story, battles and lastly at all, both are about people who join up with a partner non-human, a spirit in Seirei and a Machine Doll in Machine-Doll and both of the MC partners are smug loli that wants to be their bride and both does not want to get in bed with them. Go to Seirei if you want something fantasy world and a excellent novel to read on Baka-Tsuki, or go to Machine-Doll if you want one in an alternative real world, or see both like I did.

If you like one, you'll like the other. Literally the same concept: world is taken over by water/sand, humanity survives by living on floating ships/islands, character from "another world" comes along, entire cast is introduced to a new concept of their world, etc. Both are very good, interesting, and will grip you by the first episode! Highly recommended! At least give the first episode a shot. And know that it only gets better from there!

This is also a shonen anime involving supernatural things but in Boku no hero academia around 80% of the world has their own special powers called quirks. I feel that they are somewhat similar but Boku no hero academia isn't as serious as Ao no exorcist. The main characters have similar goals, to be number one.

Similarities: - check out genres - same slow-paced atmosphere Differences: - school setting vs. supernatural setting where characters are working in a hotel

Plot summary - "Animal girls (foxes in Konohana Kitan and bears in Yuri Kuma Arashi) who fall in love". As much as Yurikuma has cute and funny moments, mostly being dramatical and pretentiously psychological show, Konohana, being more of a cute and bright type of show, has its dramatical moments that can make you tear at times. Also there's some similar development in both of main couples: one of the girls is cold firstly, but later one, becomes nicer to another (even though in Yurikuma it happens for another reason).

This one will probably seem very out of place since it is a completely different genre, but I wanted to recommend this one for two reasons. 1. They are both by "Production IG" (which has a ton of solid works that also include Attack on Titan, but I think that would be a bad recommendation for this one) 2. They are both very pure. The main characters have personalities that make it very hard for you to hate them.

usagi and the anime version of maria are similar in a few odd ways -the anime version of maria looks kinda like a short haired young adult rendition of Usagi (the looks are mostly in their face and hair color) -both maria and usagi fall for an older guy ... maria and captain .. usagi and tuxedo mask (obvious love knows no age boundaries type of romance) -maria and usagi are both a real burden for almost every superior they face -they both are super cute -they both are klutzes and make similar mistakes, the difference though is maria is more positive than usagi, never the less both these ladies are goofy and cute the difference is there are no supernatural magic happenings. however if you like the slice of life points of usagi maria has some of that.
