Mobile Suit Victory Gundam, Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku Recommendations
NTHT and MSG-V are both set in a Crapsack World. Both shows are loaded well with emotional, dramatic, depressing, tragic and tearjerking scenes. Comedy is also present but slighty although the latter tends to be unexpected. Interestingly, there are many similarities between both shows' MC:
-both are innocent children who would later become child soldiers.
-both are in one way or another tend to be punched or abused by their superiors.
-both are confident, strong-willed and ready to save everyone they love.
-both face death around them with people being killed, tortured, dying, etc...
-both have heroines who possess some kind of psychic powers.
-both have tyrants who are obsessed with
Both are stories about a young boy learning the truths of war first-hand.
In addition said protagonists, Shu and Uso, reminded me a lot of each other, mainly due to their shared ability to always move forward in times of great hardship.
