On the surface the two anime don't seem like they have a lot in common but the thing that links them are the characters. If you enjoyed the characters from ether of these anime you'll love the other.

Both Bodacious Space Pirates and Girls und Panzer are about schoolgirls in short skirts doing cute and crazy things. Like becoming the captain of a pirate ship in space. Or commanding tanks for a school elective sport.

Both shows keep fanservice to a minimum and are character focused, with a large cast of secondary characters who you don't really need to keep track of. They are light,hearted and easy to watch. So you should watch them both. Now.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Both are upbeat, energetic shows with science fiction elements.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

Mouretsu Pirates and FMP mix elements of school life with elements of military/sci-fi, and both feature schoolgirls filling unusual roles like captain and admiral. If you like cute girls with big personalities and a light side of sci-fi, you're in for a treat on either of these shows.

My-Hime

My-Hime

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

Although Mai-Hime and Mouretsu Pirates have different tones and overall feels, Marika and Mai are very similar characters. This is a gut-feeling rec, but I think if you like either MC, you might do well to try the other show.
