Yurippe is extremely similar to Haruhi, in both appearance and personality. There are other character similarities as well (Otonashi = Kyon, Angel = Yuki) although they aren't quite as strong. The more lighthearted episodes of Angel Beats remind me of the non-Melancholy episodes of Haruhi, although the shows have different styles when it comes to dramatic plots.

Angel Beats main character resembles Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's main character a lot. Yuri as crazy as Haruhi and have same kind of personality besides not only main char even story is unique too [ this is also same for another way :) ]

School setting with a group of teens and a suttle aproach to the supernatural.
Leaders in both teams are know-it-all girls with an agenda (who also look alike), whilst the leading males are the non-doormat yet not highly assertive type.

Both have fantasy and very similar atmospheres and main characters, and don't take themselves too seriously.

Both have clubs, gods, and main character look alike.
report Recommended by SoFarGone
The similarities are astounding: both center around clubs, both leaders are charismatic and random, both involve supernatural elements, both take place at schools, both leaders are eccentric and wear arm bands, the male protagonists both are very bland and just follow along... The list goes on!

If you liked Haruhi, you'll like Angel Beats!

I find the two main characters of these TV series strikingly similar. Suzumiya Haruhi is very similar to Yuri. They are both headstrong characters with great leadership skills that lead their groups to "mischief" (to put it generally). If you love Haruhi, check out Angel Beats! Both are supernatural series but other than that they are pretty different.

Paranormal things that happen are controlled by a certain person.

They are both amazing animes that have some similar qualities. While Angel Beats also has a more serious and sad side to it, it is also very humerus and comedic like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. They both have the light-hearted school/club element, and the club leaders are both very enthusiastic. While neither of them are very focused on romance, they each have some romance between the characters that make the stories more interesting. I think that regardless of their similarities and differences, both Angel Beats and the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are amazing shows that deserve to be watched, and you will love them.

Very similar in main characters being rebellious females leading a group. A lot of supernatural and slice of life as well as humor, romance and action. Also, similar music/concert scenes.

report Recommended by pseudo_persona
They are just too alike!Both series discuss the "God" topic.Also Haruhi is similiar to Yuri,Kyon is equal to Otonashi & Nagato looks like Kanade(Angel)(Tenshi).Although I think Angel Beats! is better.Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu is awesome too but it feels a little random especially in season 2.
report Recommended by TragicRomance
It has a person that looks like Ms. Suzumiya and mentions "god" in it. Also has a character similar to Ms. Nagato.
report Recommended by KyonzumiNagato13
Both series have a brigade that involves supernatural things. Also the brigade leader (Haruhi and Yuri) have a very similar personality, and both series have many references to "God".

In both there are some episodes with music concerts too.
report Recommended by Raizhen
Element of "god' in both series, except that in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, Haruhi is the god, and in Angel Beats, Yuri is opposing the god. Supernatural elements in both (monsters). Both use character flashbacks for character development. Also, Yuki and Kanade are both danderes who are good at fighting
report Recommended by coolwolf
Suzumiya Haruhi is very similar to Angel Beats. There is a strong female lead character with involvement with sci-fi aspects, there's also minor romance involved in both series. The variety of characters in both series do share similar character archetypes. If you liked Suzumiya Haruhi, you'll enjoy Angel Beats.
report Recommended by Nikoru-san
Both are mystery comedies based on similarly strange supernatural premises. Both do a great job of revealing a little bit more information each episode, which changes how you view the story and keeps things fresh.

Both take place in a school type setting. Both involve clubs/bridges. And both deal with clashing ideologies of life. The main characters of Haruhi and Yuri also share similarities with each other.
report Recommended by Stunfisk
both involve one forceful girl leader, both center around a concept of rebelling against god in some form, both have a guy that changes the main girl, in some form
report Recommended by Classicola
It's obvious that angel beats took some parts here and there from Suzumiya Haruhi. Both are the leader of a Club, both have a similair style especailly the sailor school uniform looks really close

angel beats is suzumiya haruhi no yuutsu just with more emotion but a much more senseless story and a very devastating bad 13th episode
report Recommended by NekrozOfGungnir
Similar female protagonist (in looks and in personality)
Both feature a club established by the female lead
Both contain a quiet girl with hax powers

Slice of life meets Sci-Fi. Watching them both, you'll see small similarities. Both great short series.

They both have action though Angel Beats has more, both have decent characters, and they are both funny :D

both yurippe and haruhi have almost the same character
report Recommended by haero
Not long after starting Angel Beats, I was surprised of how similar it was to (The Melancholy of) Haruhi Suzumiya series.

First of all, the MCs:
Otonashi (Angel Beats!) = Kyon (Haruhi Suzumiya)
Both are the "normal" type of guy, who's enrolled into something despite themselves. They follow a group, somewhat uninterested, but enjoy it in the end. They are VERY similar.

The Setup:
Afterlife Battlefront (Angel Beats!) ~=~ SOS Brigade (Haruhi Suzumiya)
Both take place in school (Slice of Life), and their "headquarters" are both a Club room.
Both series don't take itself seriously thus include comedy.

Overall:

Yuri = Haruhi, Otonashi = Kyon, both animes have a highschool-setting and are about clubs and supernatural things.

The main female characters are very alike. Both lead a group that they made and actually, they kinda look like each other. The main male characters are also similar because they are the ones who realize the weirdness of their plans and also serve as a very important member of the group.
report Recommended by emanime
The female protagonists, Yurippe and Haruhi, are very similar characters.

Both are energetic Tsunderes
Both are leaders of school clubs that deal with the paranormal
Both have a knack for having their way.

In addition, the male protagonists are characters one can connect to easily. They are your average down to Earth teenagers who have to deal with many weird occurances.

The genre of the two animes is also the same. Both are school life shows with a supernatural twist. The main difference between the two is that Angel Beats! has a much darker side to it, while MHS is lighter in   read more

Both shows have a similar atmosphere and share a high school setting (although angel beats is set in the 'afterlife'). They both have elements of mystery and humor and some of the characters are quite similar like Haruhi<-->Yuri and Otonashi<-->Kyon.

Basically the music, both animes have awesome musics and the fact that both talk about teen's story and the main characters
report Recommended by Mitsuh
Both have hot-headed female leads who are somewhat incharge of the rest. Both shows are bottom line hilarious, not to mention the fair share of seriousness they both contain. Comedy, Romance, Tragedy, and action in both shows. If you're a Suzumiya fan, you'll definitely be a fan of Angel Beats!.

Both build off of the supernatural and revolve around it. Both have clubs and similar male and female protagonist.
report Recommended by TanookiTail
Both female leads look similar and have very similar characteristics, Both are about a group or club at a high school who go on spontaneous advanetures, both have a male lead who are placed in a situation unfamiliar to them but eventually just go with the flow, and both start off funny and light but get more and more deep as the story progresses.
report Recommended by KawaiiWallach
Both take place in high school and both revolve around an eccentric club leader. Both shows are comedic and enjoyable. The Melencholy of Haruhi Suzumiya also has an incredible movie to conclude the series much better than the Angel Beats ending.
report Recommended by parz
Each show focuses on a group of students dealing with the supernatural. Haruhi and Yuri have very similar personalities and go about things the same way. Feature slice of life elements and not so slice of life elements throughout the series'.
report Recommended by Backin2020
Both show us a girl as leader, who insatiably seeks an answer to the questions that she herself questions, not knowing that her response is so close to her. Both are related to the powers that are created by a being "divine" or "out of this world." Haruhi of the anime of the same name, look for aliens, espers, time travelers, who are created by their own existence and Yuri of the anime Angel Beats !, seeks angels and God, who are created in their mind, but are not real. The two series show two groups that perform different missions under the guidance of these   read more

Both animes are just great and involve with school clubs that deal with a lot of
supernatural elements and they have a very similar style of humor. Also, both animes have an eccentric girl as a leader of a group and normal guy suddenly thrown into a
strange world where all the physics rules are no more working :)
both have similar atmosphere and tone settings. They will make you laugh and from episode one you will fall in love with the main characters .
report Recommended by Caliph
High school boys, a crazy environment, a strong willed female protagonist, the world of Haruhi is pretty similar to the alternate world of angel beats. You will not have the feels that angel beats leave, but you will have the fun of a series of unexpected events that violate the law of physics.
report Recommended by Duo02

Yuri and Haruhi are similar characters, both energetic, group leaders, and struggling against resignation; Yuri doesn't want to disappear and re-make her life, and Haruhi rejects the idea of having an ordinary life and disappear from the world without anyone that remind her.
Despite the melancholic concept that both shows can hold, there is a lot of comedy into them, and the atmosphere, it's similar as for slice of life, and also comedy is referred.
