Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu
If Nichijou were a little less fantastical(absurd) and had a main character with anxiety. The comedy plays out in a similar way; comedic over the top situations occur in ordinary everyday events, but the source of the comedy (for the most part) stems from Bocchis anxiety. Comedy aside, Hitoribocchi also has a similar feel good quality that Nichijou has.
Anime: Elfen Lied
If you liked
Elfen Lied
Anime: School Days
...then you might like
School Days
Revolving around highly unconventional romances & relationships, both anime get cruelly dark and are full of characters (including some from the main cast) you're likely to outright hate. Both also have dated low-budget animation (though sometimes Elfen Lied looks good). Stay away if you're faint of heart, but if you can enjoy watching things get progressively worse for everyone involved then you're in for a ride. Also, DON'T expect similar levels of violence. Elfen Lied gets bloodier than most TV anime ever do mere moments into the first episode, while School Days has next to no violence until the last episode (and even then it's considerably less than even just the first five minutes of Elfen Lied). Still, it only goes to show how easily triggered some sorts get and is a big part of why these two anime are often shunned these days.

GJ-bu
Firstly, the uniforms are pretty much the same so that's 50% similarity right there. Both anime feature school clubs that don't really have a clear purpose. GJ-bu is basically Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate without any of the drama. Just a bunch of people chilling out.

Rilakkuma to Kaoru-san
An old claymation Russian cartoon that got dubbed into Japanese. Cheburashka is a little guy who winds up on some man's door step in a box of oranges and then he becomes friends with a crocodile. A little weirder/darker than RtK, but that's because it's a series of Soviet-era cartoons and you can see the decline of the Soviet Union in them. Still oddly sweet in it's own way, you'll like it if you like the animation style and the meandering, slice-of-life plotlines.

Just like in Sukitte Ii na yo, Kuzu no Honkai also focuses on teenage romantic and sexual feelings along with being very dramatic as well.

If you want something like Sukitte Ii na yo but with a darker atmosphere, then I highly recommend Kuzu no Honkai!

Carole & Tuesday
Nana and Carole & Tusday both have two similar main themes, female friendship and a love for music. Both start of with two girls meeting by chance and ending up living together in apartment, both shows have strong musical ties and people trying to make it big, and strange enough both shows use the two main characters names in their titles. The shows seem to focus both strongly on character development. They have nice character designs and kick ass music, though I'd have to note C & T's main characters are much younger so this may effect their choice, desires and the whole shows attitude towards more adult content.

OPM simultaneously mocks and pays homage to many shonen tropes, most of which can be traced back to DBZ as it can be argued dbz influenced the entire genre to such a degree that every series that came after was in some way influenced by it. If you enjoy these kinds of shows you're more likely to enjoy the comedy show OPM as you will get most of the jokes and references while it retains a lot of what appeals to people that like these types of shows. DB/DBZ/Super is no slouch when it comes to humour either.

They also both have great characters and character designs. They both also have the same drawback, being only one season long and not continuing long enough to animate their entire source material, and so remain unfinished in a sense.

Devils Line
Both animes are suited for more mature audience, one is mainly for it's violent scenes, and the afterimage of the death, while Devils Line is mainly more mature for it's hints of adult actions. Devil's line is also quite violent in terms of certain episodes, so for action, horror, and a tinge of anime, watch one or "another." :P P.S. Sorry if this recommendation is bad, it's my first one, and it's a bit hard for me to summarize the differences that got me into both animes...

Baki
If you like martial arts battle anime such as Tenjou Tenge, Baki has been the most realistic martial arts anime I'm yet to come across. While Baki has a lot more added Gore and the fights/styles themselves are a lot more grounded in realism, they both have many interesting characters with good back stories. Baki is probably better at developing more of those characters while TT will focus on a smaller group of characters and give more focus to their stories. I'd say Baki focuses more on the shows main protagonist Baki Hanma, but gives equal focus and development to all other supporting characters. TT will sometimes focus on a small handful of supporting characters even more so than the MC's but the rest of the supporting cast aren't developed at all so the main focus is the main cast and small group of supports (Shin, Mitsuomi, Emi & Bunshichi).

I would like to say I have a lot of things to say about these two series. I don't. I would like to say that the plots of these two stories were deep. They weren't really that deep. However, if you want to go on a roller coaster of emotions, I would recommend both of these anime. The plots aren't similar but they leave you with the same feeling when you finish each scene. It's amazing how these completely different plots are actually deep. I'm making an attempt not to spoil anything, but in both anime the ending at first left me with a feeling of emptiness, but later I felt content with the ending. I do want to say that if you get emotional easily, you should be warned that these anime will either seem stupid or really get to you.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
At first glance radically different: Mononoke is a semi-episodic mystery/horror, divided into miniarcs in a way similar to Monogatari, whereas Madoka Magica is an unorthodox and thrilling take (but with linear plot) on the magical girl genre. In more than one way, they couldn't be more similar! Both are original screenplays and 12 episode anime that feature heavy psychological elements and psychedelic visuals that set them apart from the norm. Plot twists, surreal horror, deconstructive/harsh takes on human nature and of course, a beautiful atmosphere and symbolisms abound. They are not for the faint of heart and offer a memorable experience. Other anime that heavily resemble Mononoke are: Bakemonogatari and Gankutsuou.

Both feature unusual art and animation; Houseki no Kuni is an example of a full CGI anime done right, whereas Kaguya-hime resembles an animated traditional japanese painting, thanks to its watercolor backgrounds and minimalistic but aesthetic designs. Also, the alien enemies of Houseki no Kuni insantly reminded me of a certain turning point in Kaguya-hime, not going to spoil anything. All in all, both anime use their given artstyle to birth life to a distinct setting that stands among other anime.
