Heroman

Heroman

Poor, short, and unathletic Joey Jones has always been picked on by the rich kids at his school. But when a lightning bolt turns a toy robot he salvaged from the trash into a hulking, remote-controlled bruiser, Joey becomes the only thing standing between humanity and a terrifying race of alien invaders, The Skrugg. If he's going to save the world, however, he's going to need the help of his friends Psy, Lina, and Professor Denton, along with more courage than he ever knew he had.

Both of these animes are about a person making friends with aliens, and then having to save the earth from other aliens. Neither of them are super serious.

Tsuritama and Summer Wars are visually similar, heart-warming shows with a focus on relationships. Both involve people putting aside their differences to solve a major problem. 

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...

While these two series have different plots, they both involve a boy who has trouble making friends who meets a non-human being that changes his life.  The main characters of both series make some friends as their respective series go on.  Both series are mostly lighthearted and laidback (though Tsuritama does get a little bit tense in the last couple of episodes).  Both series also have plenty of funny moments (though Tsuritama's humor is often crazier than Natsume Yuujinchou's) and you get a feel-good feeling after watching both series.  Overall, I think if you like one, you will probably like the other.

In both of these watery anime, a mopey/awkward high school boy suddenly finds himself living with a supernatural guy (either merman or alien) who's determined to cheer him up. Kono Danshi is BL (though it's very sweet and not at all explicit), and Tsuritama is not (though it is about strong male friendships, and has a really similar character dynamic).

Both of these anime are animated with bright colors and patterns (though Kono Danshi was made entirely by one person, so it's very low-budget).
