Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight
Both shows have their flairs in one way or another, and viewers need to always expect the weirdest and stylish of moments in both shows. Both shows are two-faced, featuring a rather laid-back high school setting contrasting with a surreal, parallel "dimension" or "universe" where certain students participate in heated duels for their chance to shine. One main difference is that Revue Starlight main focal point was the characterization and relationships among the female cast, while Star Driver actually features an antagonistic group. Both shows have musical themes to them and can actually be considered spiritual predecessors of the classic series Shoujo Kakumei Utena, an equally dual-typed show from the 1990s. Both also have similar formats consisting of "character/enemy of the week". They also both have recurring and brilliant transformation sequences. One more notable difference: Revue Starlight utilizes idol-like and magical girl-like themes, while Star Driver is prevalent with the featuring of giant mechas.

While it seems like the most obvious similarity is that both shows feature a photography club in school that is the backdrop for a romance, you can draw comparisons of the female leads and the side characters in both shows as well. Teresa (Tada-kun) and Hitomi (IRODUKU) are both entering an environment they are not used to, Teresa being from another country and Hitomi being from a different era. The side characters in both shows seem to have romantic interests inside the club as well, but with the other members.

Same type of love story, which is incestual relationship between brother and sister. While in Yosuga no Sora it is described in a serious way, in Oreimo, it's more focused on the comedy side. The unfolding of the two anime is similar: the protagonist is surrounded by several female characters who all serve as love interests. But the main girl remains his sister, who is jealous of her brother's suitors. Also, each girl has her own arc. However, the final arc is in both shows focused on the little sister.

Both main characters are detached from the norms of society due to their past upbringings, and go through quite a bit of characterization and development as their respective story progresses. In both cases, they were bittersweet and show the hardships and realities of life, even in fantastical settings (though Sayonara no Asa is more supernatural/magical by nature). Both shows' animation are among the best in the recent years, and arguably ahead of their time.

JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken (TV)
If you loved the campy nature of characters such as Hisoka, then JoJo’s is a must watch. The protagonists of the JoJo’s story are various members of the Joestar bloodline, with each more outlandish than the last, sporting eccentric designs and wildly varying personalities, and although the over-the-top-ness of it all might seem weird at first, after a few episodes it can become hard not to be sucked in by. Specifically, from the second season of JoJo’s onwards, the characters begin to sport a wide array of seemingly random powers, in the form of stands, which although might seem somewhat useless at times, when used under the right conditions can become lethal, I see this as much the same as how different characters nen abilities are used in HxH, as often smarts and certain requirements are used over brute strength to win fights, which I believe creates a lot more tension in doing so.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
If you didn’t like SAO, then KonoSuba is for you, and if you did, then KonoSuba is for you. For those who didn’t like SAO: KonoSuba pulls apart and takes the piss out of all the tropes of the isekai genre, which shows such as SAO started, by taking a light-hearted, comedic tone and never taking itself seriously, and in doing so becoming the best isekai anime. And for those who liked SAO: Kazuma, our lovable protagonist, continues to sport his harem much the same as our favourite edgelord kirito did, has his fair share of ‘overpowered’ abilities and takes place in an MMORPG-like world.

Redline
Although the plot and characters in TTGL are amazing, I feel the main reason many people love it so much is due to how much fun the show is to watch, and if anything can replicate how much fun watching spiral powered mechs combine is, it’s illegal space racing. Don't be turned away from Redline due it being about racing, to call the things they drive 'cars' is a vast understatement, and are as close to normal race cars as the Gurren is to an average mech. Both are over the top awesomeness incarnate and stay at full throttle the whole way through, with Redlines amazing animation showcasing this brilliantly.
Anime: Chihayafuru
If you liked
Chihayafuru
Anime: 3-gatsu no Lion
...then you might like
3-gatsu no Lion
Both anime are slice-of-life drama with a traditional Japanese game as the game of choice for the characters. Also, although the tone of these anime differs greatly (Chihayafuru is the definition of relaxing and cheerful whereas 3-Gatsu no Lion is much more serious), both treat character development well (this is 3-Gatsu's strong card) and provide enough hype with the games (this is Chihayafuru's strong card). They also don't shy away from showing the main characters actually getting defeated in games and feeling anguish. Still, in case one looks for superior drama, they should prioritize 3-Gatsu no Lion, whereas Chihayafuru is well-suited for people who prefer the hype and thrill a sports anime provides.

Anime: Asobi Asobase
...then you might like
Asobi Asobase
Both are absurdist, surreal comedies featuring a unisex cast in a school setting. I like to imagine Asobi Asobase personified as Cromartie High's little punk sister. Asobi Asobase tends to prefers high energy humor while Cromartie High, which is by no means slow paced, will occasionally play the long game with their jokes. Visual humor is prominent in both shows, with particular emphasis placed on absurd facial expressions. Side Note: If you do plan on watching Cromartie High School, I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend the english dub. I don't think Asobi Asobase has or will get an english dub, but that doesn't matter as the Japanese voice acting is amazing. Cromartie High School on the other hand just happens to be a freak case where the english dub surpassed the original Japanese VA's work.

Whether it is moe style for the characters (Madoka Magica) or chibi-like (Made in Abyss), both series are more than meets the eye. The colorful art conceals surprisingly deep lore for the settings, with enough touching, tearjerking and even downright hopeless moments springled in.

These shows remind me of one another not only because they feature magic, but because they use magic as a symbol for the characters' inner beauty and strength. The characters leave their homes, become independent, find a mentor, develop friendships, help others and we see them grow from each experience. Without the fantastical aspects, these shows feature relatable and believable experiences of growing up.

While Hibike! Euphonium isn't centered around romance, I think both have some similar themes such as hiding one's feelings and dealing with the struggles of growing up. Also, the main characters' personalities and interactions remind me of each other (Oumae being similar to Koito and Asuka being similar to Touko). Both shows reveal multiple facets of the main characters' personalities and touch on believable doubts, thoughts, and dreams that people might have in high school.

Both shows are excellent stories featuring magic with a dark twist, summoning spirits, spectacular fights, large casts, complex politics, and a universe with extensive lore. Complex character relations involve alliances, betrayal, and conflicts on both small and massive scales. The art styles are both highly polished, and the animations are smooth and dynamic. The character and costume designs are detailed and beautiful. Both shows make use of CGI to enhance the visuals in the best way, blending environments, special effects, and traditional animation gracefully.

Darling in the FranXX
Both of these shows are very very similar, both have mecha, romance and have super natural beings. Although the love story in Darling in the Franxx is done better, Guilty crown did a decent job. Both main characters in both shows are very similar, Zero Two and Inori both have pink hair and are resented in some way throughout the show being called "monsters", Shu and Hiro both are weak characters that rely upon their pink haired heroine to give them strength and they also suffer amnesia. If you've seen Guilty Crown I highly recommend Darling in the Franxx and vise versa.
