Synopsis:

A man is miserable. Despite all his dreams of a “Rose-Colored Campus Life” filled with raven-haired maidens who dote on him, his social life is going nowhere. He has no girlfriend, his only good friend keeps getting him into trouble, and the circle he joined brings him no joy. So he tries again, and again, reliving his first two years of college life ad nauseum, making different decisions each time, having no recollection that he’s already done this all before. Will the man ever be satisfied with how his life turns out?

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Holding strictly to his family's creed, Kou Ichinomiya has never once, in his life of privilege, owed anything to anyone – that is, until a self-proclaimed Venusian named Nino saves him from drowning in the wake of a dire accident involving Kou's pants. Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.

Arakawa Under the Bridge and The Tatami Galaxy are way more similar than one might think at first glance. First, both series tell the story of a man stuck in an odd world/setting which they can't seem to get out of, and populated by a bunch of weirdos. And then there's Maaya Sakamoto, the brilliant voice actress who plays both Nino from AUB, and Akashi-san from TTG, two somewhat similar characters in terms of personnality.

If you enjoyed one of those two great series, there's no doubt in my mind that you'll love the other.

While their format is obviously different, these two share striking visual resemblance when it comes to character designs and overall aesthetics, which is no surprise considering they were drawn by the same artist. So, if you like the artstyle of Tatami Galaxy, check Atarashii Sekai too.

Kaiba

Kaiba

Welcome to a world in which memories can be transferred from body to body; old painful memories can be removed and replaced with new ones, and the poor sell their bodies to the rich to survive. Waking up one day, Kaiba finds himself in a strange place with no memories of his past and a mysterious hole in his chest; the only clue as to his identity is a locket with a picture of a girl hanging from his neck. Armed with this token, Kaiba must now travel across the galaxy to discover who he is and what the girl in the locket means to him; however, his journey will bring him into contact with many people whose lives have been tragically affected by the manipulation of memories. All too soon it becomes clear that something is very wrong with this world…

Maasaki Yuasa is possibly my favorite anime director ever, and if you enjoyed one of his works you should definitely check out the others (hence this rec, as Tatami Galaxy and Kaiba are both directed by him). The storylines and sense of style are especially intriguing. Even though the art looks simplistic, this simplicity allows the animation to be in near-constant motion, so there's very few of those pesky still-frames that plague other series.

Kemonozume

Kemonozume

In present-day Japan, Toshihiko Momota is member of a secret warrior faction called the Kifuuken. The Kifuuken is dedicated to destroying Shokujinji - humans that turn into man-eating monsters when hunger takes them. However, to fate's chagrin, Momota meets and quickly falls for Yuka, a Shokujinji herself! Will their love be able to overcome Yuka's insatiable appetite for human flesh, or will the couple be destroyed by the bestial tendencies of humanity?

Stylishly animated and darkly funny series from Masaaki Yuasa and Madhouse. They don't have  alot in common in terms of plot - for one thing, Kemonozume is far more reckless weirdness then it is narrative - but they have a similar artistic style and tone that makes them recommendable to each other, i'd argue.

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Both Tatami Galaxy and the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya uses repetition in their plots. Both of the resets are done by an uncontrollable force that the main characters must figure out the "trick" to stopping it. Though Tatami does have far more new content in its episodes and makes in-jokes about the repeated sequences while MHS's infamous "Endless Eight" sequence merely changes the characters clothing and slightly alterations to the dialogue.
