Synopsis:

Gawl, Koji and Ryo may seem like ordinary exchange students, but in reality they're anything but normal. The trio has travelled into the past to stop dangerous genetic research from being completed – research that has terrible consequences in the future – and Gawl, a boy with the ability to morph into a powerful creature, may be their best hope in succeeding. Now, between trying to hide their secret from the nosy daughter of their landlord and attending classes at Oju Academy, the boys must race against the clock to complete their mission at any cost.

Generate to a monster? Just like Generator Gawl people generate into monsters. The main char Kazuma gains the same powers as Gawl and I think these two series got the same style. Humoristic, cute and serious at the same time. I really think you should watch Scryed if you liked Generator Gawl.
Lothar
Generator Gawl and Scryed has lots of things in common, like superpowers and great action without losing the story wich many of animes of this kind can do. While the fights in scryed might impress more, so does the story for Generator Gawl. Both great series andif you like one, you'll most likely enjoy the other one.

SoulTaker

Both these is about a boy with the ability to shapechange out to stop a greater evil.
kamirura
Turning into a monster when danger is near.... Trying to find out the truth about yourself and the world around you.... Sounds familiar? Yes Generator Gawl and Soul taker are quite similar. Both deals with the "turning into a monster" thing though soultaker is abit darken and more depressing than Generator Gawl. So if that's what you're looking for be sure to check it out.

Blue Seed

Blue Seed

In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?

While they don't share much plot-wise, both of these have a VERY similar feel. They feel like 90s titles from the animation, to the generic fighting monsters element, to the wow-this-is-such-a-stereotype 'romance' between the main characters. If you liked one, try out the other.

Guyver - The Bioboosted Armor (2005)

Guyver - The Bioboosted Armor (2005)

While investigating the site of a strange explosion with his friend Tetsuro, Sho Fukamachi stumbled upon a mysterious artefact – the bio-armor suit called Guyver! Unfortunately, the owners of the artefact – a shadowy organization called Chronos Corporation – want it back; and they want to ensure that no one lives to tell of its existence. To survive, Sho must unlock the increasingly fearsome powers of the Guyver suit while battling an endless stream of Chronos' bio-engineered monsters. His journey will lead him to the truth behind not only the origins of the artefact, but also of mankind itself!

Watching Generator Gawl felt like I was watching a secondary story in the Guyver universe. There are a lot of similar idea's and themes, interesting plot twists in both that are pretty cool, some characters are pretty similar (especially Guyver's Mizuki and Gawl's Masami), and of course bio-mecha action with characters that transform. If you like any of the Guyver shows, definitely check out Generator Gawl.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

One is about super powers while the other is about mech battles, but the shows have a lot in common.

Both have a female character who is overly extroverted yet secretly a nice person, and one who seems to have no social skills and is prone to awkwardness. The male lead in Eva shares elements with the 3 males in Gawl... questioning why he's doing his actions yet always trying to live up to the expectations people place upon him.

Both shows feature a mysterious shadow organization that is always manipulating things. Much like Eva, the show starts off fairly light-hearted but around the midpoint it seems to go out of its way to depress you.
