Synopsis:

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. He is one Yashiro Isana, claiming to be the Colorless King; and he is now a wanted man - not only to the Red King's faction, but also the Blues charged with keeping the peace. He is even sought by Kuroh Yatogami, a knight of the former Colorless King sworn to slay any unworthy successor. Only, the subject of their struggle, "Shiro", is a nondescript young man living an unremarkable life in an island academy, and seems to have no recollection of killing anyone. To keep his life, Shiro must prove his innocence; but what is the truth behind his mysterious past, and what will be the outcome of this confrontation of Kings?

Psycho-Pass

Psycho-Pass

In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.

Psycho-pass has their own mystery. Just like anime K, their own mystery are awesome. Pyscho-pass is about real world and same as K. With the one squad to protect the city, K also have it. With the best story-line, you must watch it if you want to know the real mystery and the shocking climax!

Kamishi

Both set in a modern and futuristic Japan, Psycho-Pass and K explore the conflicts between various societal groups in an attempt to uncover the truth about what really happened in the past.

Strike the Blood

Strike the Blood

300 km south of Tokyo lies Itogami Island - a man-made landmass that’s been authorized by the government to house spirits, vampires, mermaids, and other magical beings who’ve been pushed to the brink of extinction. Kojou Akatsuki is one such resident who used to be a typical high school boy, until an incident 3 months ago turned him into the Fourth Progenitor - a powerful vampire - against his will. And while he’d rather stay an anonymous teenager, things change when Yukina, a sword shaman from an anti-terrorism agency, arrives with intentions to watch over and potentially eliminate Kojou...

I'm making this rec based mostly on the fact that both anime have flashy well animated action scenes. The settings are similar as well. Both take place in a special city where people have various powers. Both shows have some ecchi fanservice but it's not so heavy as to take over the show.

Strike the blood has demons and vampires whereas K the people with powers are still normal humans. K's plot is very convoluted and isn't very interesting, but the show is more about the fluidly animated fight scenes.

Bradalee

If you were a fan of either shows well animated fight scenes, and their settings where people with strange powers are all living together in a special city, then the other may have enough to warrant a watch. There's also a hint of fanservice in each if that's your thing.

The main difference is that in Strike the Blood, the characters are mainly supernatural in origin, so things like demons and vampires are the norm, whereas in K they are super powered humans. 

In any case, there are enough similarities between the shows to make one worth seeing if you enjoyed the other.

You can read my review more details but K definitely has that same cool, space cowboy atmostphere with intriguing characters that you only get to scratch into the surface of.

Also the soundtrack in K has that same vibe that Yoko Kanno provided in Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell.

Both are cool, casual, slow paced, and visual appealing with kind of a small town in a modern, futuristic world feel.

Deadman Wonderland

Both are cool, casual, slow paced, and visual appealing with kind of a small town in a modern, futuristic world feel.  The soundtrack also lends to the similar feel.

You're dropped into a slice of a dystopian future with deep characters and questioning ideologies.
