Anime: Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo
...then you might like
Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo
The tonality provided by Makoto Shinkai's art direction in these two films makes avoiding the connection between the two impossible. Kumo no Mukou is a full length film that tackles the theme of dreams dampened by the passing of time. Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo, while having a more positive outlook on separation by the never-dying hope of the characters, depicts a much more cynical reality as a result of such distance.

Like "Redline", the short "Running Man" takes place in a spacefaring future where racers risk their lives pushing their bodies and vehicles to their very limits for sport.

Dynamic Chord
At the time of me writing this, Dynamic Chord is the worst rated full length TV anime production on this site & Bakumatsu Rock is the most frequently listed-as-dropped series on this site (after Hamtaro at least). Beyond that, of course, the series are extremely similar in the fact that they're both about all pretty boys pop bands, the character designs could be by the same person for all I know and they look so similar I'm surprised they're not made by the same studio. And most important of all: They're bad.

There is a clear similarity with how both the prince in Moribito and princess in Scrapped Princess are being protected from court assassins for being the prophecied seed of destruction while living hidden from attention. The opposing parties of both shows find their divisions blurring as they learn more about the great threat. You will come to see there seem to be no real villains, only different approaches and points of view. Both Chagum and Pacifica travel extensively, albeit Pacifica moreso. Both stories feature medieval fantasy settings, with Scrapped Princess more European and Moribito distinctly inspired by Heian period Japan with some Chinese flavors added.

Both sides have their own valid reasons to fight the other. Catchy phrases. Crazy shipping fan-base. It's hard to find differences in them to be honest, so many aspects are similar.

Occasionally you see shots which are pretty much taken from Natsume one-to-one, e.g. when the MC is sick and the harem gathers at his bed.

Boogiepop wa Warawanai
I’m surprised nobody has made this one recommendation, since both shows are awfully similar in structure, directing and plot. Both are episodic shows which are heavy on dialogue and symbolism, though Noir becomes dialogue heavy during it’s second half and is more action oriented during it’s beginning episodes. Both are dark and grim, and their soundtracks are very similar as well. As for the characters, both casts are psychologically damaged and one of the characters in Noir resembles the boogiepops found in Boogiepop Phantom.

(Personally) Both of these shows fall under this healing category.

They both however how the same feel to them, they both focus on different parts of relationships but they both still have a nice relaxing and overall happy pace to them. They are defiantly both worth checking out if you like romance anime.

an anime about traditional Japanese game being played by high-schooler trying to be pro. both games (shogi and karuta) were somewhat less popular compared to other games, so the setting is very similar with fewer people to interact with both in rivalry and friendship. the main character will be supported by their rival back in their early days while keep on maintaining rivalry relationship as well. although chihayafuru is brighter than 3-gatsu and with less psychological complex, both anime tells a similar story.

Although Citrus hasn't got that many kissing scenes like Sakura Trick and there is real drama here while Sakura Trick is just almost only wholesome, there is still some same points. The most important one is "girls kissing with each other" for sure. I loved Sakura Trick, but also the relationship in Citrus is really interesting.

Although not quite similar in thematics both are parodies that make a prominent use of punchlines—even without seeing the original series you will laugh. I found Naruto SD more hilarious and absurd comedy than this one with outstanding episodes to more regular ones. If you liked Isekai or you found like me that from the half of the first season they became less hilarious I recommend you Naruto SD.
