Synopsis:

In the future, aliens coexist freely with mankind on Earth. One such alien is NieA, a lazy yet spirited girl who wastes away her days while living with the studious Mayuko. And life isn't easy... Mayuko is always short on food money, the spa where she works is about to go bankrupt and Mayuko's alien-crazy friend Chiaki is obsessed with NieA. A light, mostly comedic slice-of-life show.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Shadizzy
These two animes are made up of two completely different plots, however both share an underlying theme. Both have settings here on earth where people live normal lives, but somthing out of the ordinary surrounds them yet they continue to live as if nothing has changed. For FLCL giant factories of an unknown origin are scattered around, in niea, inhabitants from another planet are now part of the world as a lower social class. These two are both great comming to age style animes, where human emotions are essential to relationships and in the end could be the determining factor to decide if the world will end or not!! (meow meow meow)
DenderCage
The speed of action, comedy and drama in FLCL can't be matched by any series, though for its length, thats not surprizing. With more time to develop characters in NieA, the action and insanity take a back seat. The style of comedy is the same, constructed around the peculiarities of culture differences, and the plot for each is of the style of a small family making due in a world full of change. NieA may be mild by comparison to FLCL, but if you like crazy humor, social examination of a culture, and eccentric aliens who have a tendancy to blow things up, you'll enjoy both of these gems.
AirCommodore

Granted, FLCL is rather more... energetic than NieA_7. But I got a really similar feeling from each of them, due to the ridiculous characters/situations being taken for granted and the ominous and omnipresent giant iron/spaceship that nobody knows anything about but manages to be in the background for what seems like every scene.

Haibane Renmei

Haibane Renmei

A young woman quietly falls to the earth, escorted by a solitary crow. This sort of dream, as many other before have dreamed, comes just before being reborn as a Haibane, a charcoal-winged angel. On the outskirts of the walled-in city lies Old Home, a haven for Haibane to study, live, and learn, while waiting for their chance to ascend to the heavens and escape the confines of their new world. Rakka is the newest inhabitant of Old Home who wants nothing more than to remember her past and discover the secrets of her kind. Together with Reki, Kuu and plenty of other new friends, Rakka will laugh, explore, and search for the meaning of their existence in the process.

Wazoo
Both NieA_7 and Haibane Renmei have a very different pacing style than most anime. Rather than feeling episodic or contrived, they advance naturally, as events in real life do. Both also depict their protagonist's emotional journey as they deal with loss and difficulty in their lives. Both anime are also very uplifting and can help teach the viewer life lessons. The primary differences between these anime involve the mood of each piece. While both create something of a “bittersweet” atmosphere, NieA_7 mixes in occasional slapstick humor, which, in my opinion, lessens an otherwise great anime. Also, Haibane Renmei is considerably mysterious and supernatural, though both shows have these elements.
Himitsu

Although NieA Under 7 has evident eccentric comedy elements, both are definite "slice of life" genres that deal with inhuman life forms. The most striking similarity is simply the ash colours and the character design. These two titles are both enjoyable. Haibane Renmei offers another world, its values; another perspective of life. It gives you opportunities to ask a lot of questions, but still doesn't feel heavy.

Both of these fantastic series are from mainly the same production crue who try to put some true emotion out there. The struggles suffered by the leads is so similar to be in such different places. With hilarious antics and beautiful scenary these are both true classics.

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop

Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?

NieA really reminds me of Ed from Cowboy Bebop. Not a lot of similarities plot-wise, but the wackiness Ed brought to Cowboy Bebop is definitely prevalent all over NieA Under 7.
DenderCage
One is about a ship of bounty hunters and the other is about a spa? What could these two possibly have in common? Well, for one, they both have delightfully amusing characters, each with their own well developed personalities. Both have a good deal of zany comedy, while staying down to earth, if you'll excuse the pun. And both have an ending that leaves you wanting more. NieA under 7, while not so nearly as action packed as Cowboy Bebop, is still a damned fine watch. And Cowboy Bebop, while not as far into the social intricacies of japanese culture, will most likely be enjoyed if you liked NieA.

Hana-Saku Iroha

Left alone, Ohana goes to live with her estranged grandmother, but when she arrives she finds herself forced to work at the family’s hot spring resort, the Kissuiso Inn. With her grandmother considering her nothing more than an employee and a roommate who hates her, Ohana’s happy dream of a new life soon turns into a nightmare.

Nocturnalgloria

Both anime follow a high school girl who works in an old fashioned place that is very much a part of Japanese heritage: in Hanasaku it is a traditional inn and in Niea a bath house. Struggling for survival while facing the competition of modern rivals and still trying to remain genuine give a thrust to the plot.

With that said, Niea is considerably random and full of oddball comedy while Hanasuku is stocked with well balanced drama. Try to put these titles side by side for a different take on the same original plot-line.

Mattnumbers

Both of these anime are about a girl who lives in a bathhouse that's going through hard times financially, and they are both slice of life (although NieA Under 7 has lots of Sci-Fi aspects as well). They are both fairly slow paced and character driven, and I got a similar feeling watching each of them, so I think that if you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other as well.

Just like NieA Under 7, Aria the Animation is purely a slice-of-life series. I feel that Aria has what NieA lacked for me. While they have a somewhat similar sense of humor, it's actually presented in a good way in Aria. If you liked the SoL aspect, atmosphere, "soft" sci fi themes and mild comedy of NieA, make sure to check out, much better, Aria the Animation.
