Both series have a more down-to-earth take on superheroes (or masked heroes in Samurai Flamenco) and how they would function in modern society. Both have a male lead duo that exchanges a lot of banter back and forth, and neither is especially serious.

If you found one to be in good fun you might want to check the other one out.

Both of these are shows about super heroes in a real world setting. They both feaute a pair of male leads that have interesting dialogues between them. Also both shows take a more light hearted approach to the material with lots of humor.

If you like one then you should check out the other.

While it's hard to say for sure while Samurai Flamenco is still running, there's some definite similarities in tone and theme.  What is a real hero?  How can you balance being a hero with your life and normal responsibilities?  Not to mention the way between heroes and their need to save people and elected officials.

Also, leads who must help everyone no matter how much trouble they cause.

Two guys--one serious and by-the-book, the other goofy but kind-hearted--team up together to fight crime! Before Samurai Flamenco even aired, I wondered if it was going to be similar to Tiger & Bunny. When I first started watching the show I thought I was mistaken. I don't want to spoil it, but they ended up being more similar than I expected. SamFlam is definitely more interested in parody, but otherwise both of these series share similar elements--the "buddy cop" relationship of the two leads, the mix of comedy, action and drama, the interest in how media would interplay with real-life superheroes, a strong supporting cast (some of which don't get nearly enough development), etc. Definitely a pair of superhero anime that are pretty similar--and both highly enjoyable, if flawed at times.

Both of these anime have a similar feel to them: Fun and wacky with some serious moments. They're both a great time... Action, comedy, superheros and yaoi undertones... What more could you want?

Both series have a similar fast-paced, action-packed feel to them. Awesome guys being heroes with a little bit of absurdity.

Although maybe at first glance they don't seem familliar at all, there is one key simmilarity that connects Tiger & Bunny and Death Note together: that is the concept of the never-ending fight between law and crime, and the many different perspectives one can view them from that both shows offer us. Although the main perspective is offered by main characters, when all is taken into consideration, in the end it is left to the vewer to actually choose what is really this 'justice' everyone is trying so hard to defend and carry out. Oh, and a couple more things: both series have a very balanced plot that is at times too intense to bear, and although the character pallette and the mood seem completely different from one another, the basic feeling after cooling off the series is practically the same (at least to me). :D Nevertheless, I recommend to at least check out the other if you've watched one.

OK, let's hear it at the beginning: Both series include masked heros of justice who are there to fight for the protection of their beloved city from crazed villans. There, I said it. Moving on. Both series include the main character whose parents have been killed by a murderer when they were very young and nowadays can no longer remember the murderer's face, so they decide to fight crime while at the same time investigating their parents' murder. Although Batman: Gotham Knight is and had to be far darker-themed and gloomier than Tiger & Bunny, the theme for both series is incredibly simmilar and the past and personalities of characters are also quite alike. On the other account, the animation of both seres has been tempered with and new things have been tried out; so if you're into that and pure masked avenger/hero action, I strongly reccommend it. :D

Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk

Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk

In the kingdom of Urak, the tower of Druaga is a source of fear and death; it is the cause of disease and monster attacks, and climbing it is impossible given the ferocity of the monsters within – until now. It is the Summer of Anu, a period that occurs once every five years during which the monsters are weakened. Jil, a guardian, is one adventurer whose goal is to reach the top level and slay the tower’s creator, the demon Druaga, and finally bring peace to Uruk with the help of a powerful artifact found within. However, Jil and his friends aren’t the only ones who aim for the top; it’s a race to the finish!

Both series are parodies of some sort, and at the same time are actually telling a story that is themed like the shows they're parodying; very good stories, too. Packed with good humour and drama that balance each other out, both Tiger & Bunny and Tower of Druaga 1st season offer something new and not new at the same time, which on its own is refreshing enough. Add good music and charming character design to the mix and you get two anime that shouldn't be disregarded before even giving them a try. So, without further ado, let me say the well known sentence around us people who reccommend stuff to other people: 'If you've liked one, check out the other!' :D
