Both are deconstructions and satires of their own genres, in the case of Bake: Harem-ecchi and in the case of Zaregoto: Murder-mystery. Both are written by Nisio Isin and the anime staff is largely the same. It has a very similar vibe to Bake due to Akiyuki Shinbou's directing and the protagonists are somewhat similarly presented. All the girls are amazing in both series.

Bakemonogatari and Kubikiri Cycle both originate from novels of author "Nisio Isin" and therefore share a similar structure and narrative. In both anime you will find the protagonist surrounded by the opposite gender and find each episode to majorly focus on dialogue and character interaction. Therefore both anime are character driven. Additionally, both anime are produced by Shaft and therefore they have a similar artistic design. Lastly to add I found both anime to produce a similar feeling on isolation, as the worlds of both anime seem to be isolated from their worlds society. So by watching both anime you may notice a lack of   read more

Both are extremely dialogue heavy shows with similar witty and occasionally philosophical discussions. The art style for the shows are virtually identical so it is worth checking out one if you liked the style of the other. Overall I would say if you like one you will almost certainly like the other.

These two series share several similarities besides being love children between Nisio Isin and SHAFT. They both share many similar elements, with the difference being their focus. Bakemonogatari is, at its core, a romance between two characters, albeit in a subtle manner. Zaregoto is based on a crime mystery that the narrator finds himself dragged into. They both enjoy exploring concepts and ideas, such as works of literature, morality, identity, relationships, and Nisio's favorite, genius. If you enjoyed the thought-provoking conversations and stylistic visuals of Bakemonogatari, Zaregoto is worth checking out.

Same author of original novels (Isin Nisio), same studio (SHAFT), similar visual and protagonists (Araragi and Ii-chan). Honestly, Kubikiri Cycle looks like detective spin-off of Monogatari Series. If you are fan of one, you will probably like another.
