Both of these shows are what I would call truly "modern" animes. Though cell phones and such have been featured in animes for years, these shows both use modern technology and the power of the internet heavily as a part of the plotline and center around the power of connectivity and the internet generation.
Each of these series have a lot of things going on that make it rather confusing and hard to keep up with, but manage to be great series. Other than that, it is kind of just a feeling that draws these series together in my mind.
Durarara and Eden of the East are two exciting, by the seat-of-your-pants type shows. With very interesting yet mysterious plots, they keep you guessing until the last minute. If you liked the fast paced action of one be sure to check out the other!
Japan has reclaimed its former glory under the guidance of Kings, charismatic individuals wielding incredible powers. But now, one of the Red King's vassals has been murdered, and a viral video shows the killer's confession at the scene.

Both series have a similar atmosphere and setting (both are set in a big city) and both have a large amount of characters and you get to find out about each of them, although Durarara!! has more. There are also gangs involved with both anime. If you liked one, you should definitely check out the other.
Both K and Durarara have plots involving students who get themselves involved and large power struggles between rivaling gangs. Both casts are large, but full of memorable characters. Both contain supernatural elements as well. Furthermore, both of these have the setting be a large city.
In both K and Durarara!!, you get to see things through the viewpoints of various characters. Numerous questions are raised. Who is the good guy? Who is the bad guy? Is this character as innocent as they claim to be? What do they have to do with anything? With large casts and lots of stuff happening at once, you may want to remember names and faces. The story doesn't make much sense in either series until later on as things start to come together, so be prepared to buckle up.
There are still a few more things these two share - both are set in a large city, there are different gangs going at each other, and there's even some supernatural stuff going on to spice things up. It's undeniable - if you liked one, you should definitely be interested in the other.
The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets.

Durarara!! and Steins;Gate share quite a few interesting themes:
- Both start off with a slow paced "slice of life" ambience that, very subtly, foreshadows the following...
- ...Jump into a neatly intertwined plot.
- Insane characters;
- Norse Mythology references;
- A sprinkle of metaphysics: Time Travel (in Steins;Gate) and Norse Myth Fairies (in Durarara!!).
If you liked any of these aspects in one series, you'll most likely also enjoy the other.
Also, there's the "same voice actor" bonus: Mamoru Miyano and Hana Kanazawa.
DRRR!! and Stein both start out as fairly light-hearted explorations of new experiences, but, as hinted, slowly evolve into a much darker and more serious overtone.
It should be noted that Stein is much more of a mindrape than DRRR!!, but at the same time, DRRR!! has a fair bit more pure, ridiculous awesomeness than Stein.
I absolutely loved both of these animes. If you enjoyed the connections between the characters slowly surfacing in Durarara!! then you should give Steins;Gate a go.
Both animes are fairly intricate, and I recommend them both if you're looking for a great plot with some humor thrown into the mix.
