Sanako and Tomoko are both socially awkward to a ridiculas degree. They are unable to communicate with others normally and their appearances are almost scary. Although Yamanade is a romance, It's safe to say that if you liked one you would like the other.
Both Wallflower and Watamote feature the most awkward of socially awkward high school girls with awkward hobbies. Sunako likes horror movies & gore, and Tomoko likes dating sims & manga, causing both girls to struggle with ideals of what is normal, pretty, and popular. If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other.
Both girls are weird, socially ankward and introverted but while Sunako is able to at least make friends, Tomoko continue being antisocial the whole series.
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...

Both shows feature a main protagonist who's a bit of a social outcast, and one that many viewers can easily relate to in one way or another due to the situations each find themselves in, and how each deals with said situations.
The differences are that Watamote focuses almost exclusively on the comedy, and while Yahari certainly has plenty of humour, it places most of it's emphasis on the drama side of things. Overall it's also a more uplifting show than Watamote is, not that that's saying much.
Both the main characters are loners (but tomoko is a more serious one) and have the same worldview regarding friends and social life ( at first.) But the only difference is that Hikigaya manages to have friends later, while Tomoko does not.
Both anime feature a protagonist that has a problem with social interaction. The characters are quite different while Hachiman is analytical to a fault, Tomoko allows her imagination to dream up the worst possible case scenario and usually winds up there. Both protagonists both have very little desire to change, Hachiman admits this openly while Tomoko strives to be more social in theory but in reality is simply happiest remaining a shut in otaku. If you like one it is likely you will enjoy the other but Watamote is more realistic, nobody will come to save poor Tomoko which leads to very cringing comedy while Hachiman enjoys a much more refined sense of comedy surrounded by characters who are drawn towards him
To the rest of the world, Umaru is kind, smart, and the perfect high school student. But her brother, Taihei, knows the truth: at home, she's a bratty, slovenly, lazy girl who eats junk food, plays video games, and throws tantrums when Taihei won’t buy her manga or do what she wants! Now, in addition to working full time to support their household...

Both anime involve an otaku girl who stays home all of the time, playing video games, watching anime and snacking. Both girls do not have many friends, and actually cherish the time they have with the little friends they do have; both main characters have a close relationship with their brother. The main character in Watamote is socially awkward and doesn't really have friends. In Himouto, it's not the main character, but another character who is socially awkward and doesn't really have friends. Nor does she know how to make them, she also happens to freak people out and scare them, due to her awkwardness.
The main characters are fangirls. The main characters both rely on their brother. The main difference between the two is that Umaru is popular and hides her otaku side, yet Tomoko only has her brother and old friend and hadn't hidden her otaku side. I enjoyed both shows and would re-watch them both, because of the comedy and relatability.
