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!

True Tears

True Tears

Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.

Well we could start with the usual love polygon, except that both of these have a male protagonist that lives close by the female protagonist.  Though True Tears may not be a heavy Rom/Com such as ToraDora, there are similarity in the dialogue and character interactions.

True Tears and Toradora! are both adorable with very individual characters, along with a wonderful deeper meaning.

Air

How to male main character cares about his friends and doesn't want to lose them/takes care of them should is the main connection here.

Toradora! also contains some of that tear jerking magic and in depth character development that Air has however its not as powerfull as Air in that area because of the comedy side Toradora! has compared to Air.

Angel Densetsu

the main character has a look completely opposite of his real nature, and though he tries to do good he is often misunderstood, sure the themes of the animes are different but i enjoyed both of them greatly.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

Morwen

While Toradora! has a romantic focus and Azumanga is focused just on slice-of-life comedy, both series have a similar style of comedy, based around the character's wild personalities. This is particularly evident in Toradora! with Minori, who often acts like a more energetic version of Osaka. They also use some of the similar "typical" highschool episodes, like the characters going to a beach house during summer break and a few episodes centered around the school pool. If you thought one series was funny, it's likely you'll enjoy the comedy in the other.

Baccano!

Baccano!

It's the 1930s, and Mafia groups fight for supremacy in American cities. Young Firo joins the secretive Camorra group; a meek street boy, Jacuzzi, finds himself the leader of a gang of thugs; an alchemist is producing a liquor of immortality, and a homunculus tries to retrieve it; and upbeat thieves Isaac and Miria head to New York after failing to strike gold in California. They ride the novel train, the Flying Pussyfoot, across the continent. However they find themselves embroiled in a ruckus caused by gangs, terrorists, serial killers, and others as multiple stories intertwine and unfold on this fateful ride. All are haunted and hunted by the legendary Rail Tracer...

Both animes are by the same makers, and although very different in story - both have a super natural theme and similar style
