Both feature an overpowered potagonist and his daily life For Beelzebub it's Oga and his strenght (and baby Beelzebub) and for Saiki it's his psychic powers. Both anime feature a silly, slapstick style of comedy, it gets very ridiculous at points but still remains funny. The side-love intrests also remind me of eachother, Kunieda and Teruhashi both put up fronts but they actually are sensitive, timid girls on the inside and in denial of their love for the protagonists.

Both of these shows follow a very similar scenario-based format and if you preferred the goofier bits of Tsurezure, you might also find yourself really enjoying DKnN. Chiaki and Kana in Tsurezure especially made me think of it because of their whole comedy-gag thing. Definitely worth checking out DKnN if you liked those bits of Tsurezure. If you only like romance anime, however, DKnN might not be your best choice cause you won't find much of that here. But if you like DKnN and ALSO love cute romance anime... well, have I got the show for you!

Both these series are about a "hero" gaining power, starting out as weak and growing with a mentor who trains them up well to be able to progress in their passions at an adequate rate. (Not too fast, nor too slow). Both struggle with themselves and what they want to be. This case, it is Mafia, but the Mafia in this world is seen as good and protects people. Overall to me, it has a similar feel as well overeall besides just character personalities and progressions learning to use their power.

If you like anime where someone who knows nothing and gets introduced to a new concept which is interesting to watch, give these shows a try. Both shows actually have similar internal set up. In Baby Steps someone who knows almost nothing about tennis is introduced to the sport and in Ballroom main character gets introduced with the dancing world. Main characters are hardworking and have a power to pick up abilities so therefore it is very interesting to watch both of these series. Also there is a chance for romance, too because there are girls :D If you liked one, give another try as well.

If you are up for a cute anime where both guy and the girl have feelings for each other but are not realizing it at first or too afraid to say it, give both of these shows a try. Itsudatte is shorter and you don't need to have seen previous movies before that. Kimi ni todoke is a longer series. Even characters have similarities, where main heroine is kind of timid, yet very nice in personality and both are good at teaching other people whilst the main guy is popular but still has eyes only for the main girl. Also both are situated in high school environment and are quite well written.

If you liked
Chihayafuru
Anime: Ballroom e Youkoso
...then you might like
Ballroom e Youkoso
The stories themselves aren't extremely similar, but the execution and emotions you feel are very similar in my opinion. Both anime are about an uncommon sport/activity- Chihayafuru is about a card game called karuta and Ballroom e Youkoso is about ballroom dancing. Both main characters are introduced to the world of karuto/dancing by somebody they idolize greatly. Now, they strive to become the greatest. Supporting characters are also fleshed out more than most other series and everybody feels truly real. Interactions, feelings, problems, worries, arguments, and everything connecting the characters feels natural and legitimate. They feel less like anime characters and more like actual people. In both shows, there is also the underlying theme of romance. Neither are obnoxious and are point blank a romance anime, but the romantic mood is always in the air. These shows are also great for shippers! The canon ships aren't obvious. Soundtracks are both gorgeous and art is unique. Chihayafuru's art is more polished and honestly some of the best art I have seen. Ballroom e Youkoso's art is more unique and can turn some people away, but I loved it. The way the bodies are structured and posed intrigued me more and more each episode. The roughness worked. However, the most important part is how these shows make you feel. They might seem slow paced and boring from the outside looking in or after only a few episodes, but the pacing works for the shows. They are both a slow burn with a few explosions mixed in. Quality never drops and I feel like they even get better as time passes. During both of these shows, I have laughed out loud, cried, got goose bumps, screamed, and showed more emotions than I very rarely do. Both of these shows are 9/10 for me. Some of the best anime I have had the pleasure to watch. Highly recommend both.

Anime: Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic

Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic
(Both anime can be watched without needing to watch the original series.) Twin Angel Break and Luck & Logic fall into the magical girl genre. The overall experience of both is pleasant and light-hearted. The two might pull at your heartstrings a bit, but nothing over the top that would ruin positive feelings both shows have to offer. In terms of main characters the anime star two female characters that have similar personalities. One who is normally quiet, studious, and serious yet sweet on the inside and the other who is more fun-loving, socially out-going, and cheerful yet always loyal to her friends. Together both characters don't initially get along at the start, but their friendship develops over time. Expect both to have transformation scenes, a cute pet side-kick, and a colorful supporting cast held within a school environment. Differences: In terms of watching the first few episodes Twin Angel Break may come off as underwhelming whereas Luck & Logic might come across as overwhelming however the middle and end of both will feel much stronger than how they both started out as. Twin Angel Break has a good vs evil plotline whereas Luck & Logic is generally slice of life. On the contrary, both bring up the conflict of character vs self as a common element between the two. Twin Angel Break I'd recommend to younger viewers and people who might be new to anime since common anime tropes show up infrequently and lighter than would be expected. Luck & Logic while I emphasize is just as light-hearted may require a bit more maturity given it humor and how it can dip into yuri territory here and there. In conclusion both are in the magical girl genre with an overall cheery mood throughout and main characters sharing similar personalities.

JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Stardust Crusaders
I know that this rec could seem strange since it seems that K-on and Jojo are in complete opposition, but I still cannot think about one without thinking about the other and here is why : - In both you follow a group of friend in their everyday lives. Jojo SC1 has a lot of slice of life moments (that makes everybody say it's boring while I greatly enjoyed it), you see the lifes of the 5 guys of the group doing their activity : that is travelling and fighting. In K-On you see the girls in the music club having fun. In both sides, there are slice of life moments. - There are also many elements of comedy in both : JojoSC1 is way more comedy-oriented than the other Jojo parts. K-on is basically a comedy - Both titles features in majority a group of people of the same sex (girls in K-on, boys in Jojo) with exagerated expression (moe in K-on, GAR in Jojo) - Lastly, the more important in my opinion, I enjoyed both series in the same way : I wasn't just watching friends having fun or travelling, I felt like I was literally taking part of their group. I was living an adventure in Jojo, I was having fun in K-on I know this recommandation is strange, but if you liked one, there is no reason to dislike the other since they share SoL and Comedy, without romance (the Action in Jojo SC1 or the school setting in K-on can turn down at first but it is greatly enjoyable nonetheless. Also both have a lot of memes on the Internet

The obvious differences between them would be Senyuu's fantasy setting verses Osomatsu-san's real world SOL setting, and Senyuu's plot driven nature verses Osomatsu-san's episodic nature. Still, they both give off a similar feel.

The Autumn Selection tournament arc is abounding in JoJo references, and executes them to great effect. It could be subtle, such as when Mimasaka could anticipate his opponents' next move as menacingly as a JoJo villain would. Or, it could be as blatantly obvious as both Megumi and Kurokiba's dishes manifesting as Stands to "Ora-Ora" it out, just as Star Platinum would against an enemy stand. In addition, there's a lot of third-party exposition-dumps occurring from the sidelines and opponents explaining themselves in both series. In my opinion, Food Wars does this a little better than JoJo, because it makes me appreciate the science behind cooking a lot more (plus there is no physical combat that would otherwise be interrupted). However, I do appreciate how JoJo uses fight-commentary to add to its over-the-top nature. Both the Stand Battles and Shokugeki feel epic and high-stakes in their respective series, so if you like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, you will also like Food Wars.

Uchuu Patrol Luluco is a homage of Trigger Studio to its animes (& Gainax's). Basically, it's a non-stop dynamic and energetic mad venture just like KLK with a lot of references to Trigger's stuff. It's the to-go stuff when you're like "I now have a void I would like to fulfill by watching a show that has a lot of references to animes I have watched and made a void on me"

In addition, you show real feelings, the inner struggle to achieve dreams, how friendship can overcome any barrier, that what we thought impossible to do, becomes only excuses not wanting to try.

Mushishi
Both anime focus very much on making a good atmosphere, they are pretty calming to watch. Zettai Shounen isn't episodic like Mushishi, but still are quite similar. In Mushishi, there are Mushi, whose mere existence are the cause of various problems throughout the series. In Zettai Shounen, there are these glowing bright lights which interact with certain characters. The lights aren't typically the cause of any problems, but more of a thing that some of the characters in the anime show great interest in and try to study. Both shows focus on the interaction between characters along with the study of a supernatural being, and as a plus they both have great music.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV)
I truly enjoy the romance genre and I love when a show breaks out of the common mold and adds a fun supernatural element to the romance. Midori no Hibi and Yamada-Kun are similar because they both contain a male lead that is a "tough guy" who has a rarely seen soft side and a shy girl who is brought together with the tough guy through a Supernatural way. I love both of these shows because they show a great connection between the two leads and it is really nice seeing their romances blossom in a comedic and Supernatural way.

Both have a story which is based on romance and action. Although the romance takes the front seat and the action makes the story stronger. In my opinion Angel Beats! has handeled this balance perfectly when SukaSuka/Worldend could still improve a lot. But if you enjoyed Worldend you will love Angel Beats!

In short form: Two words - Mass downgrade In more descriptive terms, Both Psycho-Pass 2 and Berserk 2016 bring their respective anime down from their greatnesses dramatically. Psycho-Pass 2 suffers from very lackluster writing from the prequel. While Berserk 2016 is also guilty of such a problem, it suffers even more problems too, ranging from horrendously cringy animation to god awful sound design.

They're both similar in terms of how brilliant they tackled a character's death and its aftermath. How the characters who are still alive cope with their loss and how they try so hard to move forward with that pain still etched in their hearts. Also, both anime have friendship, magic, adventure and fantasy elements too.
