Ah! My Goddess

Ah! My Goddess

Keiichi Morisato is just your average college student until one day, fate interjects as he makes a call for take-out food. Unknown to him, he reaches the Goddess Help Line, and contacts a goddess named Belldandy, who grants him a wish. Thinking it to be a joke, Keiichi wishes for her to be his girlfriend 'forever'.

Done by the same guy that did YUA, it's much shorter and has more (light) romance elements, but it's much less frustrating than watching Miyuki and Ken blush at each other and not say anything.
MaximusThrax
Both designed by Kousuke Fujishima and featuring the same quality wonderful character designs, both of these series are really lighthearted romantic comedies. Despite the fact that You're Under Arrest is about two female cops and their office romances and hijinks and Ah! My Goddess is about the adventures of a goddess living with a Japanese student.

I recommend AMG mainly because it was created by Kousuke Fujishima, who also created YUA. AMG is more of a light-hearted romance whereas the Miyuki/Ken relationship in YUA is more serious and realistic. Still, AMG is a fun, but short OVA to check out.

Shingen

YUA and AMG were originally created by the same artist, and are very similar series. The main difference is that Goddess is more "epic" due to most of the main characters being, well, goddesses, while YUA is more down-to-earth due to the setting at a police station. The tone of both series is similar enough that you half expect Keiichi being pulled over by Nakajima for speeding.

Drahken

Several of the characters are very similar to ones in the other series, the action/comedy nature of both is the same, as is their largely episodic nature. Not surprising since both series were created by the same person. Nonetheless, if you enjoyed one you'll also enjoy the other.

Ah! My Goddess TV

Ah! My Goddess TV

Morisato Keiichi has always had bad luck. No matter what he does or how he acts, nothing seems to go his way. His bike frequently breaks down, his classmates take advantage of him, women ignore and scorn him, and on top of all that, he’s only 5'3". In Heaven, when someone’s bad luck and good luck are so heavily out of balance, Belldandy (Goddess First Class, Second Category, Unlimited) of the Goddess Assistance Agency comes to the rescue. Belldandy grants Keiichi one wish to make up for all of his bad luck, but when Keiichi wishes for Belldandy to stay by his side forever... the trouble begins. Can Keiichi keep Belldandy by his side, or will outside elements force her to return to heaven?

Both were written by Kousuke Fujishima. Both are lighthearted animes with their fair shair of romantic moments. And both are humorous while serious at the same time. As if all this wasn't enough, many of the characters from Ah! My Goddess were inspired from Fujishima's Taiho Shichauzo!

Najaraja

Both Ah! My Goddess and You're Under Arrest! were written by the same person.  While the plots of both series are vastly different, they share the same light-hearted, fun-for-the-whole family humor.

Galadriel

Both Ah! My Goddess TV and You're Under Arrest are works of the same author, Kousuke Fujishima.While the story and plot of these two animes are different, both of them feature the same humour style and drama aspects.So if yu like one of this two then for sure you will enjoy the other one as well

Hyper Police

Hyper Police

In a post-apocalyptic future, mankind now lives alongside demons, spirits and other supernatural beings. Everyone is interested in coexistence, but every society has rotten apples. The bounty hunter group "Hyper Police" does its part to catch and contain criminals, and with employees such as the half-cat, half-human Natsuki and Batanen the werewolf, law-breakers better watch out.

Although a little fuzzier, this cop drama is top notch. A little bit of Bubblegum Crisis meets You're Under Arrest, if you know what I mean. Oh yeah, and cat girls... hehe
Drahken

These are both about the wild antics of some female police officers, and the two shows feel a lot alike.

BushidoPizza

Both of these have a similar feel to one another with the mix of comedy and action that they provide. They also feature a strong female lead. They also take a lighter tone to the business of policework.

Dominion Tank Police

Dominion Tank Police

Many years in the future, crime is out of hand. In order keep the city safe, the Tank Police were created. The Tank Police are an elite unit that uses massive tanks to bring criminals to justice, yet many feel they do more damage than they are worth.

Two very good buddy cop dramas. One by Kensuke Fujishima, the other by Masamune Shirow. BOTH DAMN GOOD!
Drahken

Both of these shows tell the humorous adventures of wild female police with a passion for their machines.

eX-Driver

eX-Driver

In the relative near future, fossil fuel cars have gone the way of the dinosaur -- electric cars rule the landscape. And when these electric cars go bad, it’s up to the Ex-Drivers to stop them! Join Lisa and Lorna as they encounter situations revolving around them putting their souped up cars’ pedals to the metal in a showdown of slick cars and hot drivers. Speed is the name of the game and the stakes rise quicker than an RPM gauge in overdrive!

Both anime were created by Kousuke Fujishima. eX-D is newer, so the visuals are obviously much better; however, YUA has a better and more realistic story. eX-D will definitely appeal to those who wanted YUA with more cars, and YUA will appeal to those who liked eX-D, but felt the characters and story had something left to be desired. Naturally, since both anime are created by Fujishima, expect to see Fujishima trademark lovelies driving fast cars.

DontStay

Not only that the Manga author was the same Kosuke Fujishima, but both anime have a lot in common, including cars, main characters who are both females, not just that, but their appearance, temper.. Also, both have similar plot lines, which is chasing after bad guys, but in Ex-Driver the bad guys sometimes are AI cars ;)
