Kodomo no Omocha (TV)
Both female leads are high spirited, hardworking girls with a pechnant for finding stray dogs, that is they bring out the best in people, and their male leads are their foils being capable, exuding coolness and mystery and both weirdly love sexually harrasing their partner (but they're still kids so that can be forgiven). The tone starts off light and fluffy but gets more serious as we progress. They both are extremely enjoyable and made me laugh however Kodomo no Omocha has a greater number of episodes and can be quite frustrating in comparison to Gakuen Alice.
Anime: Tokyo Ghoul

Ajin
Both of these series deal with a main character rejected by society. As is the case with Kaneki, Kei is deemed as an unsightly being that needs to be "eradicated", or, in the words of the residents of Japan, "locked up and taken care of by the government". Both protagonists dance a fragile line between staying themselves and being what everyone else believes they are. Both are in hiding and both lose a bit of their humanity somewhere along the line. But unlike Tokyo Ghoul, Ajin doesn't completely screw over the second season (okay, maybe there's like one scene that could've been better). All in all, it's one of my favorite series out there. Don't let the animation throw you off - it actually grows on you! A must watch!

Haikyuu is a really famous anime and all of you guys might know what it is about. Simply said: it's about Karasuno volleyball team, go on competitions, and develop their skills and friendship along the way. Characters are similar and the sense of humor is also similar. They both contain handsome guys (wink wink to the girls) and even cute/pretty managers! Season 1 is mainly about the development between the team and its members and the joining of the fellow volleyball members who quit. For me, Season 2 actually was like the "start" of the BIG competitions and the Really good ones. However, both episodes are good and I KNOW you guys will love it! It's a catch from the beginning like Kuroko no Basket! So! at least just watch one episode! (Pretty Pleaseee) You will love it!

Like, Naruto or Bleach. This anime is quite popular (in my opinion). Some characters are actually similar with one piece characters. Like Luffy and Natsu who are both main characters and both have the same personality (silly yet serious when they have to be), they both love their nakamas and think highly of them. The characters are not only the same thing, but there is also genre. They both contain adventure and comedy. It's the same "style" I should say. Both of them just makes you want to laugh out loud and just want to cheer them on during fights/battle scene. Also, they both have "series" should I say? or Arc. (in One Piece) They both contain lots of "chapters" and meet new friends along the way. I will definitely encourage you to try this one out!

In both the shows there's a main male and female protagonist and in each show they share a love interest to add to the comedic factor. If you've seen Konobi and enjoyed it, I would recommend Gamers for a similar experience.

Kakegurui
The term ‘Overpowered’ simply cannot be expressed enough time and time again. There is no better feeling than putting oneself in the public spotlight to be look down upon by a superior being only for that food chain to be turned around and giving the hunter a taste of its own medicine.

‘Kakegurui’ hammers in an environment where power and position are determined by a person’s sheer will to control fate which in turn excludes fair play in an unwritten rule. The storyline and character development paves well with its gender inequality as can be seen by a lack of male characters at top positions but nonetheless can be considered a success for the show’s vision. Being able to reach the pinnacle of your dreams and lose it all in an instant will no doubt deliver incessant satisfaction to the audience with many indulging on the sweetness of revenge.

‘No Game No Life’ focuses on a journey by a pair of siblings that would love nothing more than to incite world domination. Unlike ‘Kakegurui’, the vibrant colourful animation sets a lighter tone to an otherwise competitive wonderland. Comedy is another element that plays right into the pleasant storyline due to the likability of the characters in the show. Armed with admirable intelligence and the hunger for success, the siblings venture out into the world in hopes of achieving greatness and being worshipped as the true almighty in their new world.

Kuzu no Honkai
While different in many aspects, these animes both tackle the difficult and sometimes uncomfortable subject of adolescent and young adult romance.

Kuzu no Honkai veering more towards the difference between love and lust, sexual awakening, and the pressures put onto young people (by peers and society in general) to be sexually active. it shows the misery and desperation felt by young people when their love life is not going the way they want. This anime has a much more sombre feel to it, and can be very uncomfortable in some scenes.

Golden Time tackles the more emotional aspects of young love, which mainly focuses around intense love and mental health (I consider Koko to have Borderline Personality Disorder), as well as insecurity, and pressures from society to have sex. It also tackles amnesia and the difference between childhood love and real love. It has a lighter tone, but still covers some difficult topics, and has sometimes uncomfortable scenes.

These are both very hard hitting, intense anime, which require a lot of focus and patience to watch. Some scenes can be hard to watch, and I find both very relateable.

Both anime have a wide eyed protagonist who wants to work for the military bc he aspires to do good. However, with the passage of time and the help of rebels within the country, he realizes that his great city is not what it seems - it is being eaten away by sheer corruption, and is headed by a figure head that is deliberately allowing it all to happen for their own personal agenda.

Both characters undergo changes, mostly because of the revelations that they face + the deaths of those close to them.

I found Akame ga Kill a watered down version of FMAB, because it lacked the character development of the latter. The anime focuses more on the fight scenes and making it more visually appealing. Nothing wrong in that, if that's the kinda stuff you prefer watching!

Bungou Stray Dogs
Hamatora is a slightly light-hearted version of BSD and I'm surprised it doesn't have more recommendations. This rec is based on only the first seasons of both anime.
Similarities include:
# Everybody living in a world where only certain individuals possess superpowers
# MC and his gang of rag tag friends are part of an agency that takes on cases to help people or organizations
# Tension between MC and his bestie (who also happens to be his partner) bc of the difference in their natures
# The MC is easy going while his bestie is stricter, more mature.
# Both have antagonists sort of obsessed with the MC
# Both aim at being serious but the comedy in them seem jarring at best
# Both had a lot of potential but it was wasted due to poor direction/character development.

Differences:
# The biggest difference, honestly, is in the colour palette of the two. While Hamatora is colourful, fun and is clearly aimed equally at both girls and guys (which I really respect and appreciate), BSD has muted colours and is aimed more at guys.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
If you're looking for another shounen, action anime, then try out Katekyo Hitman Reborn! This anime may be underrated and not as popular as mainstream anime, but it won't disappoint.

---------------------------------- Here comes a rant... Don't worry, it's worth the read ;)))) ---------------------------------------------------

This anime is about a boy named Sawada Tsunayoshi that is bad at everything. He isn't smart, athletic and can't even swim. One day, a baby arrives at his house and reveals that Tsuna is an upcoming Mafia Boss!! The baby also declares that he is the world's best hitman and he will tutor Tsuna to become a great Mafia Boss. You can already tell this is gonna be packed with comedy!
Unique characters are introduced one after another, each with their own quirks. This anime will make you love each one of them! Even a rude baby that never listens to anyone, cries a lot and throws grenades everywhere. Seriously tho, that baby was soo annoying. But he ended up to be very lovable.
The action in this anime is not purely based on power, but on how you figure out the tricks behind each attack and conquer them. The thing about this anime is that the enemies start to become lovable too :))))
SOOO TRY THIS ANIME OUT!
Be prepared that the action doesn't start until 20ish episodes in, but during that time, learn to love the numerous characters :))))

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry
When I first watch Chivalry of a failed knight and finished it and finished Absolute Duo I got the same vibe from watching Chivalry of a failed knight. The first similarity is they both take place in a magic weapon school. The second similarity is both male and female protagonists from both shows use swords and they both have to fight in a competition. And that's all I have to say

Psycho-Pass and Ergo Proxy share genres. To name a few: Sci-Fi, Seinen, and Psychological. Psycho-Pass for me also exuded a dark mood. If you're looking for an even darker atmosphere then Ergo Proxy is for you. Not to mention, Ergo Proxy is one of my favorite animes :) Definitely give it a watch, I highly recommend.

Kakegurui
These two anime have a lot in common in of itself that is based on psychology and mind games. Plus the fact both revolve around high stakes gambling with a lot of back and fourth. In fact the only two differences is i can see is. Kaiji comes from debt while Jabami comes from Riches and one is female the other is male. I also felt like the first episode of Kakegurui was a bit of a tribute to Kaiji as well with the card game on the first episode.
