Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara
These shows remind me of one another not only because they feature magic, but because they use magic as a symbol for the characters' inner beauty and strength. The characters leave their homes, become independent, find a mentor, develop friendships, help others and we see them grow from each experience. Without the fantastical aspects, these shows feature relatable and believable experiences of growing up.

Durarara!!
They are made by the same author and animated by the same studio. Both have large ensemble casts. Baccano! and Durarara!! may be confusing at first due to both series having non-linear storylines, but it clears up towards the end. In addition, therr are also supernatural elements (the dullahan in durarara, immortality and elixirs in baccano). Baccano is set in 20th century America, whereas durarara is set in modern Japan.

Yagate Kimi ni Naru
While Hibike! Euphonium isn't centered around romance, I think both have some similar themes such as hiding one's feelings and dealing with the struggles of growing up. Also, the main characters' personalities and interactions remind me of each other (Oumae being similar to Koito and Asuka being similar to Touko). Both shows reveal multiple facets of the main characters' personalities and touch on believable doubts, thoughts, and dreams that people might have in high school.

Both of these shows are very very similar, both have mecha, romance and have super natural beings. Although the love story in Darling in the Franxx is done better, Guilty crown did a decent job. Both main characters in both shows are very similar, Zero Two and Inori both have pink hair and are resented in some way throughout the show being called "monsters", Shu and Hiro both are weak characters that rely upon their pink haired heroine to give them strength and they also suffer amnesia.

Both series are adventure tales that take place primarily on the sea, travelling to different islands.

There are some minor differences, but the one major difference I can see would be the animation styles... which, in both shows, are contemporary of the era they were made in.

Although sports and superhero shows are typically pretty different, there are some key similarities in these two shows. The main protagonists from each show are extremely similar in both personality and experience. Both were told that they could never accomplish their goal and both proved everyone wrong. Their struggle to become the best at what they do while experiencing numerous setbacks was also a main theme in both (Hinata's mainly focusing on his height, while Midoriya's focuses on controlling his new power). If you like watching the underdog work hard, struggle, and eventually grow to become powerful, both of these are shows that I would highly recommended.

Main male character Tada and Aoi are depicted as cold and completely focused in their hobby, Mitsuyoshi with photography and Yuito with art. Both of them are in the Photography Club of their schools with more friends, though in IroDuku, Aoi is the only one in the art section. The big divergence is in the content of their stories, IroDuku is much more dramatic and ambitious, Tada-kun is much more relaxed, but also never got the ambition and has lazy characters.

That's also why they use cgi models and motionless backgrounds most of the time in this kind of anime, since they're doing the audio before all the animation.

Both shows are like an adventure, they have a great and unpredictable plot, and they have a lot of comedy. The cast it's HUGE but all the characters are interesting and get some kind of development. Both can get gory sometimes. Both have a meh beginning but they pick up really fast and it seems like out of nowhere. And they have a good amount of action.

Grand Blue
Gut-busting series where the premise and tone are near identical. D-Frag! is more reserved as weird as that may sound but its only because Grand Blue plays close to the edge. Lots of gags, goofs, spoofs and laughs. Both series feature a male protagonist who is forcefully thrown into joining a school club where the hilarity levels blast off right into the stratosphere.

The main characters, Academia's Izuku and Symphogear's Hibiki, strive to be heroes and are selfless enough to try to help their enemies' personal and emotional problems at the risk of their own safety. One cannot just help but root them on and follow them on their [worthwhile] hero's journey.

Both shows have slapstick comedy that is violent, stupid, and can get somewhat gory. There's also the fact that many characters in both series are angels/devils from heaven and/or hell, so they have a similar feel in that aspect as well. Jashin-chan and the MC from Bokusatsu Tenshi are both frequently the victims of the aforementioned violent slapstick and can be revived even if they are killed or torn apart.

"Heaven doesn't extend a hand of help to the person who doesn't behave personally." - William Shakespeare Both have same plot, same setting, same characters position. Mystery and theory also very similar. Takakura family and Fuwa family have tragedy pasts. For oppose enemy named fate, they make every effort. Zetsuen is adducing words surrounding Hamlet and others. Penguindrum expresses characters by psychology, too. Kanba is similar to Mahiro's essence. At the same time, Shouma is similar to Yoshino Takigawa's chastity. Himari and Aika are special characters among them. Mere existence is the core of stories. Both have many plot twists, curious dialogues, deliberation. Style is simply amazing. Penguindrum has more and more. Vibes also same. Serious and funny. Zetsuen is fusion of action and psychological. Penguindrum focus human mentality. Both are heavy subject I've ever seen. Both makes me think about various things. Nice character development. It is fun for mature anime fans to understand story and words. I recommend both of them strongly.

Sometimes we can't do it at our pleasure. Just like animals. And they are abnormally insane. Both are strange and unusual stories. Too strange or weird. IMO, That's what's fun about it. You can know definition of real life. Yeah, it's not very simple. First of all, you understand the surface. BM's style is Shaft-form. Penguindrum's style is magical and wondrous mystical things. Characters are very rare type. They're characteristic every one of them. I think Koyomi is similar to Kanba and Shouma. Tsubasa Hanekawa and Masako Natsume are same voice actor (a bit similar personalities). Both songs are superb quality. OP and ED songs are catchy and likable. Probably you'll like it. Storyline is almost same. BM is story to save girls. Penguindrum is story to save one girl. I like unique and elegant shows. I love both of them on that point. Awesome. Penguindrum is unbelievably less popular. This show deserves more high rating.

The fruit of the future told us. It's changing dreams into ideal world. So, what do we do next? Both are psychological thriller. You don't know how it's going to end. Don't judge first impression against both of them. Setting is contemporary fantasy. Many keyword is interspersing everywhere. So-called metaphor. It is hard to grasp situations once. As atmosphere, DN is basically dark tone. Penguindrum is mix of serious and comedic. But both are similar. Storytelling is esoteric. Theme is rebellion. What's the most important thing that they should do? Some gimmick will confuse you. In characters side, Light Yagami and Sanetoshi Watase have very similar thought. They're clever, ambitious, mysterious. Their behavior is surprisingly cunning. Especially Light is tough. Keep an eye on them. So dangerous existence. About other characters similarities...TBH, I can't find them. Because of both characters have too uniqueness. Well, that's how much both are quite charming style. Of course, include other points and elements. Both are really interesting shows. Penguindrum takes time to feel it. You must bear early episodes.

Ever wondered what the word 'moe' means? Gochuumon wa Usagi desuka? and Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san are both among the most moe anime out there. Neither anime is very funny (they both have some comedy though) but the anime make up for it with their atmosphere and cuteness. The characters are very similar; especially Sophie and Chino. They are the shy and quiet type, but certainly not the boring type; actually both are very cute and beautiful. Main difference of course is that Sophie is a vampire and Chino a human.
