Fruits Basket: The Final
Tohru and Nanami (the two main characters) are very similar. In Fruits Basket, Tohru was pretty much homeless, until she comes across Yuki, Shigure, and Kyo to find out that they have a curse where they turn into the Chinese zodiac basically. She was a normal girl all until that happened. Like Tohru, Nanami was homeless until she came across a Mikage who was a God. Mikage made Nanami a God, and gave her a place to stay. That's when Nanami comes across Tomoe and some spirits. I'm not the best at explaining but trust me, if you liked Fruits Basket, you'll definitely love Kamisama Hajimemashita.

Gamba no Bouken
Both animes tell of animals generally considered adorable, fighting for life and death with a true samurai spirit, against a threatening big enemy! They're also not suitable for young children (although Gamba isn't as violent as GNG, but rather bloody and dark nonetheless). I recommend both if you are a fan of dark animal animations and animes! You will not be disappointed.

Project BLUE Chikyuu SOS
Both titles feature a child protagonist going on an adventureous journey filled with action and mystery. The backgrounds are heavily influenced by older Science Fiction titles.

Anime: Platinum End
...then you might like
Platinum End
On the surface, From The New World and Platinum End seem quite different. While Platinum Ends world, asides from of course the shinigamis, is very similar to our own world, From The New World's world is mystical and magical all around. From The New World is much more focused on its fascinating fantasy and sci-fi aspects, while its characters often take a back seat to the world around them. Platinum End, on the other hand, has a world that is much more like the world we're used to, and its brilliantly multi-layered characters steal the show. HOWEVER, at their heart, both Platinum End and From The New World have very fascinating and thought-provoking things to say about society and human nature, among other topics, and make you deeply question your own morality and what you consider to be justice.
Anime: Hyouka

Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun
If you're interested in school mysteries but enjoy a bit more slice of life, Hyouka is the perfect anime to watch next! Both Hanako-kun and Hyouka are centered around strange occurrences around school, but where Hanako-kun divulges into a supernatural world, Hyouka explains these mysteries in a plausible real life series of events. These are both some of my favourite series, so I do hope that you enjoy Hyouka if you decide to watch!

86
I can't believe no one actually compared 86 to Muv Luv Alternative. Reasons why they are similar: - Humanity is in the brink of extinction - Humanity has created mechas to combat a threat to humanity. - The BETA and Legion have very similar properties - some of them are mindless creatures, while others are smarter and act as commanders to their fellow creatures (in 86 they are known as Shepherds, in MLA they are known as the Superior). - Some types of Legion and BETA are similar to each other: Lowe (86) is similar to Fort Class (MLA), Stachelschwein and Biene (86) are similar to Laser Class (MLA), Zentaur (86) is similar to Carrier Class (MLA)

Both MC's run an apothecary in a slow life isekai. Cheat Kusushi is a lot more fluffy with its vibrant pastel colour palette and lighthearted mood whereas Shin no Nakama has more of that stereotypical feel in isekai anime but has more serious notes in its vibe and plot points compared to. There is a little bit of drama in some episodes of Cheat Kusushi and Shin no Nakama does have its share of lighthearted banter as well so there is a bit of balance in both, despite them leaning more in the opposite direction of moods in both.

the main characters have the exact same vibe, they both are dead-inside that face their problems, they are very talented guys but they struggle to be the best in what they do because of their problems, and they really introvert people that completely change when they are with their friends, the main difference is the drama-romance part that you will not find in 3-gatsu no lion. another similiar thing is that in their title they both involve months xD you can find another similarity in the theme, i don't know anything of shogi or classical music but these shows made me really curious about them because they exagerate the fights to make you get into the show and feel the same emotions of the characters

Ousama Ranking
Both shows share a similar visual style. Character designs feel like they're inspired by Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy), which gives it a kiddy feel, and the animation is very fluid. But make no mistake, these shows both deal with heavy themes and are probably aimed at more mature audiences. Kaiba is more bizarre and filled with symbols, while Ousama Ranking has a more conventional story, but it's still quite mature. Both are probably masterpieces

The main similarity between the two is the setting of pre-modern Japan. Both are inspired by real major historical Japanese events and feature actual Japanese historical figures, while at the same time to the best of my knowledge maintain a good degree of historicity (with the minor embellishments here and there of course). Both also feature more drama than action, despite having two of perhaps the most important wars of Medieval Japan as their backdrop. I strongly recommend both for anyone who likes historical Japanese works of fiction.

What if you throw Kill La Kill into an Angel Beats setting and make a movie outta it? Basically that's 'Hells'. A seemingly week female protagonist gets rolled into a bizarre school,meets weird new people and soon things start to go batshit crazy.Unexpected twists alongside bizarre plot and action while little by little the cute protagonist keeps pushing her limit and eventually grows strong enough to throw everything off the balance while dealing with family issues - just too much similarity between these two anime. Besides the animation is also pretty similar and overall radiates the crazy goofy 'energy'- makes you feel like watching typical Imaishi Hiroyuki masterclass.

Both anime have supernatural elements with the 'notebook' and 'geass' and both protagonists use them cleverly. If you enjoyed Death Note, Code Geass is a viable option to watch.
