Berserk and Devilman:Crybaby are Insanely similar. Main reason being is because of the Two main Characters in each Anime, and how their Friendship turns out in the End.

Throughout both Anime's a beautiful Friendship is built between the Two Main Character's, but eventually, they take a turn for the worst. Berserk is more Old School and Hardcore while Devilman:Crybaby is Newer Gen and Cartoony, yet still Brutal. Both have Intense Action as well as scenes Emotional enough to make you Tear up, with Memorable Soundtracks.

Kyousou Giga (TV)
- "I don't know what's going on, but I like it and want to continue" - contains quirky characters with their own problems (Kyousougiga being on the lighter end than Tekkonkinkreet) - animation and art style that stands out and is different than what you usually get in anime - surreal settings, themes and action sequences - eccentric cityscapes - doesn't explain stuff upfront, so as to maintain some mistery about the characters & of how things ended up in their state, and to let you think about it These are also one of those abstract shows, and they gave me: - similar overall impression of "scatteredness" of the story or the world built (in a good way) - they have similar abstract vibe to it (as my brain perceives it) - if you like this kind of stuff, it doesn't let you immediately understand it at times due to how it's told, but Tekkonkinkreet is not as much "in the outer space" with it as Kyousougiga (in a good way) and makes more sense

Violet Evergarden is a prime example of this. Violet Evergarden has the perfect balance of a great, simple, story and also being visually appealing.

High School DxD BorN
Both are very similar. The protagonists look almost identical. The main female is a devil. There are Angels, Demons, and a 'Hero' faction. Both are harems, both revolve around the female lead's heir-to-leadership status. There are minor plot differences, but the jist is very similar. There are, however, two main differences. Testament to the New Sister Devil is basically HSDXD on steroids. The ecchi, if the original, non crunchyroll version, is watched, is FAR more extreme. Every girl has their own body part they're stimulated through, and it's a very large point of the show. The sexual scenes are far more egregious. However, it makes up for it in far better (imo) combat. The 'spells' are less flashy, but the regular combat is much better. The other differences is in protag backstories. To avoid spoilers, HSDXD's Issei is a much more from-zero-to-hero style, while Basara from Testament is much more realistic in why he's so strong. All in all, most people will have watched HighSchool DXD before they'd have watched Testament, but if you liked one, you'll likely like the other. One is more ecchi and serious, while the other is more parody and story-based.

Its kind of weird, throughout this anime I kept thinking of the similarities of this and Tokyo Ghoul. Both have characters that start off naïve and transform and its interesting to see where they go. Maybe a little edgy but in my opinion I actually enjoy that. I recently just watched it and binged it in two days and I'm sure you will too. If that doesn't tell you how good it is I don't know what will. So defiantly check this one out.

I found Code Geass later down the line but I have to say the ideas of having power and psychology are found in here as well as Death Note. Also you could say its high IQ anime where its almost watching a board game. Basically a lot of strategy and thinking is done in the anime. Also the themes of justice and such are present here as well. Also lets be honest Code Geass is an amazing anime and one of my favorite...

The whole vibe of Cowboy Bebop I believe is present in Samurai Champloo. While Cowboy Bebop has a jazz vibe, Samurai Champloo has a hip hop vibe. They both have interesting characters that you want to learn more about as well. So just do yourself a favor a watch it, you won't regret it. P.S. I was recommend Samurai Champloo off of Cowboy Bebop and enjoyed it a lot.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
A crazy recommendation, but as I am part of the minority who have watched Bakegyamon, I can't let this similarity be unknown to people. Bakegyamon and Anohana share the theme of friendship, as well as having a ghost/spirit female character with a mystery that gets unfolded later in the series. Though Bakegyamon is a bit slower due to being a 51 episode long shonen aimed for a younger audience. Now, the sole reason I made this recommendation is mainly that both series share a very similar, if not the same, sad and heartfelt scene. Both occur around the climax of their series with the same setting and "game".

Enjoy youth. Together with companions. And open a new path hard. Waiting the wonderful future. Let's go. Both are surprisingly intense, likable, awesome sports anime. You can feel energy of each tough guys. Very interesting content. Similarity is so many seriously. At first, Generation of Miracles and STYLE FIVE. Their names are symbol of both shows. Tetsuya Kuroko and Haruka Nanase are splendid player who have strong mind. Basketball and Swimming stir up each combative spirit. They have a lot of dependable friends. Taiga Kagami and Makoto Tachibana are best friends of them. Each friendship grow exiting mood. Plus, Kazunari Takao and Makoto are same voice actor (Tatsuhisa Suzuki). Both songs are performed by OLDCODEX. And same label, Lantis. Of course, both music are eargasm. In a word, quite cool. Voice acting also very talented and gorgeous. What a beautiful party. Don't forget this point. GRANRODEO (KnB OP songs band) is contributing to the work as same as the above band. Both are my favorites. Daiki Aomine and Rin Matsuoka are powerful rivals of each protagonists. Their game will attract you. Because of description is detailed well. On the other hand, female characters also attractive. Riko Aida and Gou Matsuoka have similar position (Riko is director, Gou is manager). Riko is Seirin leader, and understand whole so well. Gou cheer for a team. Her dedication is reaching Iwatobi properly. KnB has a bit more women. Free!'s case is little. But it doesn't matter. Their attractiveness are unbeatably first-class. Main guys, too. As both whole direction, KnB has by far fighting spirit. Free! has by far big bonds. And both have by far good-looking and cool guys. KnB is more longer series (60 over episodes). Free! is short series (20 over episodes). There are new characters, development, excited. I have too many things to tell you to write them here. But I can say this. Both are my favorite and special shows. Too great. Too lit. Even sports club is singing youth in real life. So anime also have a valid point. Nothing is most regret. If you do something, surely rewarded. Both characters are enjoying youth with full power. That's why I love both of them so much. I hope you love both shows. Good Luck.

Sunday Without God is almost episodic in its arcs, the way Casshern Sins is. The biggest difference is Casshern Sins is much darker than Sunday Without God.

I got a similar vibe from both of these titles. Araburu doesn't have the short-vignette style like Tsurezure, but it features adolescent girls dealing with relationships and sex for the first time in their lives. Both have very sweet and uplifting moments, but I think Araburu is even better due to its format and ability to develop characters. The drama is more complicated and interesting.

When I tell people about Bunny Girl Senpai I describe it as "similar to Clannad but with a little more lewdness." There is a male protagonist who helps out several young women around him, mostly at school, but underlying the narrative is a journey that he himself is taking that makes him question his existence. There are also supernatural elements in both stories that afflict the girls he is trying to help. There is a lot of heart, and you may shed some tears if you get emotional over drama easily like I do.

Nichijou and Asobi Asobase both have that intense and unexpected kind of humour that really brings the laughter out of you. Nichijou has more random scenarios for both the main cast and its supporting characters, while Asobi Asobase focuses more on the games the main cast plays, but the humour hits you harder than it would in Nichijou. Either way, both of these anime are extremely hilarious, and I recommend that you watch these if you'd want to have a good laugh.

Yuri!!! on Ice
"I want to be a man who snuggle up to you." Both feature love story of two men. Warming and sometimes sorrowful. Holy giving envelop eroded feelings. Protagonists meet quite precious existence in their life. Their hearts start to move in a positive way. Smoothly. Isaki and Victor are very similar characters. They're charming, friendly, and never stops smiling. They change Shima and Yuuri's root. At the same time, they're resisting tightened destiny inside bodies. But even if like that false things get in their brain, no problem for them. The reason is only they know. Perhaps gentles skill of intention. Things can for someone are limited. So they'll do their best. Similarities of both shows are there. No matter what happens, It's better to help each other. It's one strength. Clench strongly. NH has only almost thirty minutes though, impressive and spectacular as same as YOI. Really underrated work. YOI is more longer than NH. Because of this show is TV series. More beautiful and enjoyable. You'll like it if you're loving handsome guys. As far as I'm concerned, I recommend NH because less popular. If you have a side of Boys Love fan, worth watching.

Southpaw
Gokiburi Taisou is a fun little animation featuring anthropomorphic cockroaches. The style of movement combined with their design does make it a bit creepy though. Furthermore the soundtrack is not altogether that special. Southpaw takes the quirky and original style of its predecessor and uses it much more effectively. By using a much altogether cuter character that has much more charisma in its design, the animator has produced a music short that appeals musically, visually, and stylistically. The animated dances are integrated well with the melody of the Kuricorder Quartet and should prove to most people a gateway to this hidden gem of a band as well. The animator's work often touches on taboo, bodily fluids, and the repulsive which may not appeal to all viewers. Southpaw, however, is an animation that will appeal to those who appreciated the stylistic originality of Gokiburi Taisou, but prefer a cuter or more conventional style of character. Truly, Southpaw is a hidden gem that I expect will eventually get picked up by some big influencer and become a hit. Definitely a must watch for anyone into short music video anime!
