Kaijuu no Kodomo
Your kneejerk reaction will probably be to compare Terror in Resonance to Death Note. And that's fair. The detectives vs. criminal masterminds half of the story is definitely reminiscent of DN. But there's another half of the story-- centered on a young girl who feels out of place in her everyday life getting involved with two boys who are caught up in a life-changing phenomenon. I thought Lisa's storyline was really reminiscent of Ruka in Children of the Sea.

Anime: Shin Getter Robo
...then you might like
Shin Getter Robo
Gurren Lagann and Getter Robo are constantly compared, but to put it really concisely— Getter Robo is Gurren Lagann, minus comedy, plus horror. They're similar enough if you like one you'll probably find something to like in the other, but different enough they can have fans with entirely different sensibilities. Getter Robo's influence on Gurren Lagann is both intentional and extremely obvious to anyone that's seen both. Gurren Lagann keeps a lot of the horror-ish elements but downplays their scariness. Getter Robo wants to tell stories that are far darker than Gurren Lagann. New Getter Robo is by far the easiest version of Getter Robo to consume as someone who's never experienced the franchise before, and makes both the similarities and differences with Gurren Lagann— both incredibly substantial— very apparent very quickly. ("Shin Getter Robo" is a legitimate way to put the title, but it also could refer to a very different manga or even the title of other OVAs, so this OVA gets called "New Getter Robo" for less ambiguity.)

Ojamajo Doremi
If you worshipped one, you will worship the other. Both of these have a chill, nice vibe to it, with lots of fun episodes that you can't seem to stop watching. Both are extremely adorable, magical girl shows. Both have excellent character development. Trust me, you will grow attached to these characters in an unexpected way. Both these shows seem shallow and childish when you first hear about them, but they go much deeper. But, the only difference is that Ojamajo Doremi may get a little dark in the later seasons, unlike Cardcaptor Sakura which maintains a consistent tone throughout the story. Anyways, if you liked one, you will like the other most likely so give them a try.

Two slice of lifes with a talking cat living within a family of humans. ME isn't about youkai living amongst humans but there are references of Mikan perhaps actually being a nekomata which Buchio would turn into within TnY. Main difference would be that Mikan is hiding the fact he can talk human-language whereas Buchio doesn't need to hide this. The stories are different but they are similar with their light-hearted and heartwarming moments amongst some serious things that occur within them, although ME is a lot more comedic in nature compared to.

Sentai Daishikkaku
When I first started watching Loser Ranger it immediately reminded me of Tiger & Bunny, especially with how fights between heroes and villains are broadcasted for everyone to see. The public plays an integral part in the status of heroes or rangers. Both also show that what people see on screen isn't exactly what is seen behind closed doors; some of the "good guys" really aren't that "good" behind the scenes. Some people will do whatever they can to achieve a high status.

Shangri-La frontier mentions trash games and Kyuukyoku full dive RPG is the ultimate trash game. The full dive game is so hilariously trash and I think more people will understand how hilarious Kyuukyoku anime is after watching Shangri-La and hopefully the rating will go up Kyuukyoku. Both animes are good pairs for eachother because both topics are the same (about trash gaming), but each anime go about it in different ways. Shangri-La shows the experience with a good game and Full dive show the experience with a trash game. The comedy is very similar too.

Some plot points are extremely similar (which I will not spoil here, as they take place further on into the plots of both shows). I'll only say that both animes eventually center on heroes, how societies create such distinctions, and how heroes can be made villains from one moment to the next, depending on whose purposes they serve, and if they are politically palatable to those with the most power.

NieA Under 7
If seeing Hideki deal with living with an idiosyncratic non-human roommate while struggling to get by financially was what appealead to you about Chobits, then NieA Under 7 may appeal to you. In particular, if you like the earlier slice of life episodes of Chobits, then NieA Under 7 scratches a similar itch. The protagonists of both anime cope with the same struggle: juggling work, studying and keeping their roommate out of trouble. Chiii and NieA are polar opposites in terms of personality but both seem to have a way of causing trouble for their respective roomates, Hideki and Mayuko. NieA_7 does get serious in its later episodes like Chobits does but in a much more grounded way. To summarise, NieA Under 7 is like Chobits but without the romance and with a greater emphasis on slice of life.

a similar approach to comedic set-up - every minor gag is a Chekhov's gun for a bigger, funnier joke. While the two seem rather different in terms of characters, there are thematic similarities beneath the surface level character design tendencies - the importance of gaining allies, of family loyalty, of creative problem-solving. The overarching plot is hidden by the silly moments until it sneaks up to you and hits you on the head with a pan and suddenly you're having big feelings about the dynamics and crying.

The one who resembles the most is the djinn from Lv2 with Tio from Arifureta. But this can't be compared with the original; the battles in Arifureta are next level, and if I were to choose between them, I would definitely choose Arifureta. However, it's nice to see something similar but different.

Frieren Beyond Journey's End and SayoAsa is a testament and a reminder about cherishing the time you have with loved ones. They both illustrate the realities of the lives of others and their fleeting, finite life. Whilst Frieren & Maquia themselves continue to simply live on evermore; due to their heritage. Both stories explores the bonds while living on with this everlasting existence, both discovering the beauty of interpersonal relationships between themselves and the mortals of the world. The gravity of the mortality of the world is well explored showing the progression of time and how it affects society. The relationship between Fern & Frieren can be seen in a similar light with Ariel & Maquia where they live on together in a non-sedentary journey discovering the bond they have with each other. Expect both stories to be emotionally driven.

Two early/mid 2000s anime adapted from manga from that era. While on the surface they might not necessarily be too similar, both Elfen Lied and Gunslinger Girl have important psychological aspects involved, and both create a huge contrast between the protagonists' actions and their inner thoughts and feelings. Furthermore, both anime have a similar aesthetic, with muted colors and usage of classical music and art. On top of that, the visual style and character designs are quite similar These two are must-watch anime for those with nostalgia for the 2000s, and those who like plots that present ethical dilemmas and delve into the inner struggles of the characters.

OK, let's go. I know saying "it's a gyaru" is stupid. But the similarities are enormous. We have a gyary who is blonde and super nice who likes the protagonist and makes lots of teasing and cute jokes. But the protagonist is the problem, the protagonist of "Hokkaido gals are the best!" is a flat, boring guy. Gojo Wakana is a sweet boy, with incredible dreams and deserves romance. Hokkaido girls would live much better if they dated each other. So if you saw "Hokkaido gals are the best!" watch "Dress-up Darling" because it will be much better.

-They both involve time travel intertwined with mysteries. -A hint of comedy and romance. -Drama. -Both are psychological-thrillers full of suspense particularly in the form of incorporating tension, depth, and red-hearings, but some episodes may certainly better than others cause of hence plus this makes them both gripping to experience at times. -Animated by the same studio, White Fox (though I’d say Re:Zero tends to have overly better animation while Steins;Gate has better BGM). Differ: -Steins;Gate is more sci-fi and takes place somewhere in a city of the real world whereas Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) is a isekai fantasy set in worlds and there’s other stuff typical of that genre.
