While Welcome to the NHK is a darker comedy than Ore no Imouto, otaku culture is portrayed in a very similar manner, as an obsessive, addictive hobby, which relates to many of the fans who are watching it. In this regard they are very similar, while the overall styles are very different.
Each of these series focus on otaku life and a member of the other sex "helping them fix their life." A good mix of humor, drama and a splash of romance, on top of the highly otaku oriented story make these series fit well with one another.
Welcome to the NHK is a lot darker, but both are based around the Otaku culture. They're like both sides of the same coin. One side being dark humor and about a shut in, while the other is more light, comical, and about a popular girl who just happens to be an otaku. If you like one, there's a pretty good chance that you'll at least find the other entertaining.
If you like Welcome to the NHK! or Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai you will love the other because you'll get to see many lovable otaku characters, both also talk much of eroge and the alienation of being an otaku, also the character Kirino and Sato have shown an interest in imouto themed eroge.
Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?
The male and female leads of Toradora! and Oreimo share similar dynamics: a guy who tries to lay low ends up helping out a tsundere girl. The female character in the former needs help pursuing the male character's best friend. In the latter, the female lead is the guy's younger sister who wants to balance modeling, being super popular at school, and secretly playing eroge. At times dramatic but never dark, these series have a close sense of humor and brightly colored art. Funny without being empty.
Both tsuandere and very funny, very simialr in many ways. While the plot is very different it still brings the same kind of emotions and feelings.
The two anime are very similar in leading lady as well as relationships with the leading male, except for in Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai, the two are brother and sister.
The main girl in both are tsundere girls who seem as if they are very capable in some aspects — for the sister in Ore no Imouto, it's for the fact that she has a job and is popular, but in Toradora, is that the main girl is rich and can beat pretty much anyone in a fight — but are very incapable at actually 'being themselves.'
In Toradora, that takes form as the main girl not being able to return feelings for anyone or be close with anyone other than her best friend for long periods of time, while in Ore no Imouto, it takes form as not being able to admit she's an anime junkie.
As with all tsundere girls, by the end of it, the main male sees a softer side to the tsundere girl.
Other similarities include rivalries between the main girl and another girl, and though this might be a cheat seeing as it's probably a part of the general tsundere definition, the main girls in both tend to treat the main guys like their servants.
They're both extremely entertaining and have great side-characters, as well as believable drama centering around the group of people in each. Ore no Imouto has no romance while Toradora focuses primarily on it, but they both do a good job of highlighting the character's stories and their devolpment throughout the show.
After being turned down by his unrequited crush, Hachiman Hikigaya is determined to live out the rest of his high school life single and socially tuned out to avoid the folly of youth. But Hachiman's resolve is lacking compared to his guidance counselor, a woman determined to change the boy's ways. So, much to his dismay, Hachiman is soon forced to reach out to those around him by joining a club dedicated to serving others. Alongside the cold, but beautiful club president Yukino, eager Yui, and other new friends, Hachiman will try to stomach his new volunteer work and survive his ultimate fear: being involved in a typical high school romantic comedy.
A comedy centered around eccentric characters. While both main characters seem to see themselves as the down-to-earth straight guy of the group the Yahari male-lead is ''interesting'' to say the least. While the male-lead in Ore-Imouto is simply deathpan.
Both OreImo and Yahari are comedies featuring a number of female characters centering around a single male. While OreImo's male lead could be considered a little bland, Yahari's certainly is not, he's a pretty unique character all things considered, and is one of the main things that sets the two shows apart. The others being Yahari's altogether more impressive secondary character pool, and it's better comedy.
The biggest similarity in these shows is in the characters. In both cases, our MC is surrounded with all types of eccentric females, and both shows are spinning around their unusual relationships. While they have quite different personalities, their actions/reactions minding everything are very similar. With a quite different approach to the daily life, both shows have quite a number of similarities that might make you one of them if you enjoyed the other.

Though they begin to have feelings for each other, will Yamada and Takashi ever get past first base?
First... both of these anime have very different story lines but share one thing in common... they both have very interesting female leads.
Also both of these anime have a similar atmosphere, similar animation style, and the male leads are just trapped in the twistedness of the female's situation/situations.
Both are charming anime filled with laughable situations and lovable characters. If you enjoyed one I'm almost certian you will love the other for those same reasons.
