One reason anime is popular outside of Japan is that some shows act as ambassadors for Japanese culture. Both of these shows feature a protagonist who can see creatures from Shinto mythology/folklore in a world where most people cannot. Gingitsune brings the story on a small shrine, and invites the viewer to learn more about what goes on in a Shinto shrine. Both shows have a heartwarming slice-of-life feel to them.

Both are a Mecha Drama anime with a fantastic romance story to go along with the overarching plot along with both having an alien girl involved in the romance, being Eureka and 02. Overall if you have seen one you must watch the other. Eureka Seven is by far the better show but I digress.

Go to horny jail. Okay, sorry, I couldn't resist. I think both of these shows ultimately struggle with how much they want to pander to fetishism vs how much they want to be a serious teen romance drama, and both kinda fall into the mindless lust zone at points. I will say that both make serious attempts to be a dramas, and that both do some very unique and intriguing character dynamics. Both are very captivating shows of questionable quality, but if this is your type of thing I think you'd enjoy both. Kuzu no Honkai does still have a yuri relationship, but is much less fixated on that relationship.

Go to horny jail. Okay, sorry, I couldn't resist. I think both of these shows ultimately struggle with how much they want to pander to fetishism vs how much they want to be a serious teen romance drama, and both kinda fall into the mindless lust zone at points. I will say that both make serious attempts to be a dramas, and that both do some very unique and intriguing character dynamics. Both are very captivating shows of questionable quality, but if this is your type of thing I think you'd enjoy both. Kuzu no Honkai does still have a yuri relationship, but is much less fixated on that relationship.

Sarazanmai
Okay I'll be honest I just want to do this because my brain made the connection and I find it incredibly funny. Despite many obvious difference, I think there's a surprising amount of similarities between the core character dynamics of Zexal and Sarazanmai. In particular, I think Yuma's relationships with Shark and then Kite are very similar to Kazuki's relations with Toi, I think Kazuki's backstory and Shark/Kite's backstories share some strong similarities, and I think Kite's relationship with Hart is rather similar to Kazuki's relationship with Haruka. Without spoilers, I think there's similar issues of betrayal that eventually pop up in both shows, and of the main character(s) fighting to save/redeem their friend(s). We even have a strange mystical advisor in both (Astral/Keppi). Finally, the topic of family and getting corrupted/torn apart for the sake of your family or someone you love comes up in both (Toi/Chikai or Reo/Mabu, and Kite/Hart/Dr. Faker or Vetrix and his sons) Sarazanmai's core theme of connections also reminds me of the way Yuma believes in connecting to people through duels, and how he grows closer and befriends the many people he duels against in the show. Plus, there's also a similar concept of collecting things through repeated fights -- in Sarazanmai, it's collecting dishes, while in Zexal it's collecting number cards. I also think both shows have some very charismatic/memorable villain, antagonist, or antihero characters that end up stealing the spotlight at times. Finally, I think both shows build up to really cool/intense final arcs but don't quite manage to pull it off and (without spoiling anything) conclude on similar notes in regards to character death/sacrifices and general tone/emotion. ...yeah I really just wrote all that.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
Both of these are comedy shows that rely upon a highly static and caricatured cast of a few main characters, and play off these caricatures for most of their comedy. Both have an overarching plot that doesn't really matter much but adds a little bit of direction to the show; instead, these shows focus on single episode themes or mini-arcs with generally absurd concepts. Honestly, absurd is probably a good way to describe both, especially Those Who Hunt Elves. I think Konosuba's cast is a little stronger and the comedy hits a lot better/more often, but both have pretty similar styles of comedy. Despite the concepts, I would actually argue Konosuba reaches more into ecchi territory at points (such as the choker OVA). Both of these shows are almost exclusively surface level entertainment with little depth to be found. I also do think Konosuba is better at not falling flat, but both shows have problems where if the jokes/absurdity isn't hitting, they get kind of stale/boring or have weaker episodes.

These are two of the most straightforward shows in the industry. Both are maybe a little bit 'trashy', but I think they have similarly enjoyable aspects. Konosuba banks more on its comedy, while Misfit relies upon pretty basic power fantasy aspects. I would consider both to be very self-aware and to play their concepts very straight, while using this self-awareness to not become too stale or tedious. Konosuba has a much stronger cast, but Misfit has a much more nuanced/focused plot. I would describe both as 'dumb fun' shows. There's not really much in terms of stakes or depth for either, but nonetheless they manage to keep the ball rolling by being surface level fun.

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e
I think both of these shows are isekai (or isekai-esque in Misfit's case) with a similar goal of playing their concepts very straight and relying on the inherent humour/charm/action that come as a result of their concepts. There is some lack of suspense because you expect the MC or MCs to win (especially in Misfit), but somehow it's still reasonably suspenseful and really fun to watch. Both probably have a little bit of a 'trashy' reputation, but if you enjoy that type of thing you want really mind it. I do think NGNL has a much stronger cast and slightly more tension/intensity/comprehension to the action, but Misfit has less low of lows (it doesn't fall back on ecchi or incest for humour or do mildly uncomfortable things with the 11 year old) and a more mysterious/intriguing plot. I would describe both as dumb fun with a fair amount of self-awareness that stops them from feeling stale or cheap.

Deca-Dence
I think Deca-Dence's twist and Gargantia's basic concept have more similarities than it may first seem like. At their core, both have a focus on a character trying to figure out their own issues by living in a world alien to their own, and getting inspired to gradually rise above themselves and the propaganda distilled in them. Both are also chiefly inspired by a girl who matters dearly to them. Deca-Dence is more about rising against the system whereas Gargantia is about protecting a new system from the old one, but both fight back against the world they were born into.

Both are good sports anime targeted for the shounen demographic with interesting character developments along the way.

There is way less action (and wholesomeness), but the comedy is amazing as well as the cast (the side characters in Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan also has very similar personalities to the side characters in Mairimashita!

Aside from the main story, they serve as spinoffs to divulge more into world building and lore by exploring themes of the main stories into a deeper setting. MCs are ruthless soldiers loyal to the government conducting their duties on the battlefield with a powerful mecha that is said to be feared amongst the enemies. Music in both shows contain jazz themes that make the stories much more darker than the other entry. Aside from that, the animation is top notch in a limited series with small amount of episodes.

Both have death as a main theme. Both have a grim take on life and death. The soundtracks are both ominous and foreboding with their eerie choir and orchestrals. The characters are also very well written. A lot of thought went into how the characters deal with the drama of the plot. Overall, similar vibes. Main difference, Death Note is more focused on the crime/detective genre and Red Garden is more focused on the supernatural monsters. Red Garden is also more focused on the social life of high schooler unlike with Death Note. Light Yagami was a sociopath so he was by no means normal unlike the girls in Red Garden who go from ordinary to extraordinary in a single awful night.
