Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

Shirou and Shu start off as regular high school students assuming their daily life until one they recent event struck them that would change their lives forever getting accompanied by a girl who acts as their ally. Shirou and Shu gain powers that can take form of anything it wants and improves it throughout the story. The story gets simple early but gets twisty and complex later on as the mysterious third party awaits them.........

Both very similar. Weakish male lead. Slightly stronger female lead. Similar endings...................

Macross Frontier

Macross Frontier

After being threatened by extinction at the hands of alien invaders called the Zentradi, humanity undertook the task of guaranteeing itself a future by launching fleets of colony ships into space. On Macross Frontier, one such fleet, high school student Saotome Alto's life is changed forever: the fleet is suddenly attacked by unidentified creatures while he is performing aerial stunts for a concert by the wildly popular idol Sheryl. Alto quickly finds himself in the cockpit of a new-model fighter struggling to protect Ranka Lee, a young girl he met only hours earlier, from the invaders' swath of destruction. Noting his performance during this incident, the S.M.S. Skull Squadron private military company invites Alto to join their organization, where he continues protecting his friends and Macross Frontier.

Jaded boy meets girl who unleashes his hidden powers, flashy action scenes follow sprinkled with a lot fanservice (more obvious in GC). It has been done to death and here it is again, perfectly calibrated to meet all the criteria of the genre.

Both shows feature a young boy, who ends up having a girl bound to him that he uses as a weapon. There's not a whole lot in common other than that, but some of relationship development is similar.

Largely different shows, Interlude and Guilty Crown both share a peculiar sci-fi element of a mysterious "possibly evil, possibly good" enemy, and a girl whose body lays in eternal slumber to stop the world from collapsing.
