Noragami

Noragami

They both have similar stories and ways with the phantoms etc. With the worlds more-so for the afterlife etc are really similar but they do have their differences.

RamkoX12X

Both consist of supernatural themes and contain similar action. Beyond the Boundary and Noragami have crossovers between people and animals as well. So if you like one, then you would definitely like the other.

ZetsubouKaiji

These are both anime about the characters trying to fend off supernatural monster while building relationships and getting to know each other. Both these anime are less concerned with plot than they are about creating their unique worlds where humans live side by side with spirits and monsters and the only thing to protect then are people or gods with super powers. 

While the terms used and setup of each anime might be different with Beyond the Boundary being about humans and Youma and Noragami being about Gods, humans and spirit monsters, both anime use the same style of blending comedy, drama and action. Both anime tend to focus on their characters trying to create a charming cast being revealing the drama they are dealing with. 

The difference is Noragami actually succeeds in having a likable cast that build meaningful relationships with each other, while also building up a world where gods are real even if they're invisible to most humans. Beyond the Boundary fails at doing any of these things, the comedy is poorly timed, the drama falls flat and the characters aren't believable and the world building is sloppy and incomplete. Noragami is the superior anime.

However, if you like this kind of common anime setup then try either of these titles. 

BushidoPizza

Both Noragami and Kyoukai no Kanata feature a supernatural/fanasy element; in each, the main characters fight spirits while getting to know one another more. In both, the plots advance mostly to better explain the 'human world mixed with the supernatural' idea, along with blending comedy, action, and slight drama.

teribird

Both are modern fantasies with an underlying mystery and a well-rounded, interesting cast. The art for both is similar and fantastic as well. Both have cool sword vs demon fight scenes. 

Bradalee

Bother shows follow a group of kids as they attempt to fend off supernataural threats, while building relationships along the way in an often humerous way. The main difference in this regard is thaty Noragami follows a main character who's a god, whereas KnK is more about supernatural schoolkids.

So while they share themes and have similar plots, the way they are executed between shows couldn't be more different. Noragami excells with its charming cast, natural and funny comedy and interesting storyline. KnK on the other hand fails miserably to even time its jokes well, let alone  remembering to make then actually funny. The characters are nothing more than a bunch of annoying tropes designed to look cute, and the plot suffers from both poor writing and poor directing.

So Noragamis is by far and away the superior showhere, but fans of one may feel like the other is worth a look.

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Rikka Takanashi is a teenage girl who possesses the strongest ocular power known to man: the Tyrant’s Eye. She's currently locked in a fierce war with a shadowy organization, and the fate of the world may hang in the balance with each passing battle... or at least this is what she believes. In actuality, Rikka is merely a normal high school girl afflicted with chuunibyou syndrome, a "disease" that makes one prone to delusional flights of fancy. Meanwhile former chuunibyou sufferer Yuuta Togashi is enrolled at the same school, looking to put his embarrassing junior high exploits behind him. However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!

With both shows being made by Kyoto Animation the aesthetic similarities between them are obvious from the moment they begin. The character designs follow the same "cutesy with weird legs" designs that most recent KyoAni shows have, their mannerisms are also similar.

And while Kyoukai no Kanata is looking like being a much more serious show than Chuunibyou, the premise in both see's a male character dragged into all sorts of problems by a strange, socially awkward female lead. And while each show has a mix of comedy and drama, it seems liek KnK will be leaning towards the dramatic side more than Chuunibyou ever did, with it instead focusing on comedy more often than not.

It's extremely likely that fans of one will find the other enjoyable.

ZetsubouKaiji

While the plots of these show are quite different with Chuuibyou being a school life comedy and Beyond the Boundary being about hunting supernatural beings, both anime have a lot in common. These are both shows with fluid animation, top notch art, moe character designs, a similar sense of humor and even very similar characters.

Both anime are about a guy getting dragged into various situations by a socially awkward girl. The situations in Beyond the Boundary are more serious and often dangerous, whereas the situations in Chuuibyou are mostly comedic. However, in both anime the socially awkward girl does lead to a lot of comedic social situations for the guy.

Despite one being a comedy both anime have well animated fight sequences. In Chuuibyou these fights are all in the character's heads whereas in Beyond the Boundry the fights are real.

Despite the differences in plot and tone of the show these show share a ton of styistic similarities and if you liked one then you should check out the other.

They have a realy good animation beside the Beyond the Boundary they have a realy interesting dark story,after all the specialist from this anime is the graphic of the animation from kyoto animation that's we know they alway's put some's moe2(cute) thing was being mixed with a great action and a great supernatural combination that's can make you feel a new great experience from this anime, and for another one that's Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! they have a good animation too but the different is just from the stories in this anime make some good stories like K-on! but still can't beat the sensation of K-on! i think,but that we know the good between love stories and the club is realy more to be cool one . . .

Rastamepas

Need a new dose of KyoAni animation and character design? Don't look any farther. Both of these shows have your vary similiar cutesy KyoAni character design with a pretty decent background of art and animation that goes along with it. While both tend to have similiarities in art and design they are very different in regards to story.

Beyond the Boundary tends to focus more of supernatural and action while Chuunibyou tends to be more comedy and fantasy based. Both have a male lead who is randomly pulled into situations by the female lead. While Beyond the Boundary tends to be a little more serious Chuunibyou has a more comedic approach to them

Chances are if you like classic KyoAni looks and a fantasy/supernatural story you'll like both of these anime.

RamkoX12X

The female protagonists are fairly similar based off their character structure as someone that is different from most. They are taken in by a mature male who watches over them, making sure they are able to adjust to life the right way. So the characters are fairly similar. Both are animated by Kyoto Animation, so the art style is really similar and the atmosphere as well. So if you liked one, you will surely love the other.

GrayShadow

both animes focus on the trubles of a half demon who sufferes from his demon side, which tends to go berserk.and both protagonists end up being targeted by some kind of organisation.the animation-style is pretty similar, even though Kyoukai no kanata uses newer technic which makes watching it an experience.the quantity of humor is also quite similar, though KnK won't use as much comic relieve. instead the drama and action is focused on some more.

Aniad

Both series involve demons and are full of actoin. The demons are quite alike in a lot of ways, they are scarry draw and evil. I hope you will watch them both!

teribird

Both have 'cursed' main characters, fights against demons, morally ambiguous demons, great fights, fantastic animation, and a stellar OST.

Both anime are set around a school club and feature different characters with supernatural abilities. The male main character is the center of narration, while a cute girl is the center of the plot. Plus, there is a huge tension between those two.

tennis101101

Both of these animes have school clubs. They also both have one really out going character who has the over exciting character. Also that there is some one who likes the main girl character for the way that she is. 

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

ZetsubouKaiji

These are both anime about high schools students with special powers fighting supernatural creatures to protect their town. Both these shows mix school life, some comedy with a lot of action.

Bleach is a lot longer than Beyond the Boundary and involves going to the spirit world for long stretches. However, these are both anime where those with powers fighting to protect what is important to them. Beyond the Boundary has much higher quality art and animation. I also doubt it will take a nose dive in quality like Bleach.

I hesitate to recommend this one both ways but I will do so with a warning. Bleach really goes downhill after the first 63 episodes to the point where it's only worth watching for the most dedicated fans.
