K is puzzlingly unique, but Eden of the East comes to mind as a similarly exciting title. K has sets of rival gangs competing in a power grab but doesn’t focus so much on the stakes of the game, while Eden of the East has rival individuals competing with a much higher set of stakes. In both, the main male character has amnesia which is tied into the plot–if you liked either of these shows, I’d say give the other a go.
6. Air Gear
Description: What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.
Number of Episodes: 25

Both series revolve around a set of kings ruling over certain terroritory and groups that fight amongst each other. The major difference is that the main character of Air Gear, Ikki actually takes part in the fighting where as the Main Character of K, Yashiro does not. While K is more superpower based, Air Gear is more based around extreme physics.
Description: Yato, the supposed God of Calamity, is so far down on the Shinto totem pole that he doesn’t even have any followers or a shrine to call his own and has to do odd jobs to make ends meet.

When the down-on-his-luck Yato is saved by an unfortunate soul called Hiyori, he’s forced to take on a brand new job – to turn her back into a human and fix her supernatural out-of-body experiences! Can Yato, a Regalia-less, miserly minor god, even attempt such a tall order? And is there more to him than his ridiculousness lets on?

They both start off as comedies and get more serious towards the end. Their protagonists are similarly shrouded in mystery but you get to know them better as the story progresses. Also their relationships with other people are similar (kings/gods and their followers). In the end both these anime are nothing less than a fun adventurous ride.
Description: In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident’s mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they’re considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl’s judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.

Both animes have “kings” and both are about different factions of people with different powers. There are some major differences but this simple fact kept reminding me of accel world when watching k.
2. Strike the Blood

Kojou Akatsuki is one such resident who used to be a typical high school boy, until an incident 3 months ago turned him into the Fourth Progenitor – a powerful vampire – against his will.

If you were a fan of either shows well animated fight scenes, and their settings where people with strange powers are all living together in a special city, then the other may have enough to warrant a watch. There’s also a hint of fanservice in each if that’s your thing. The main difference is that in Strike the Blood, the characters are mainly supernatural in origin, so things like demons and vampires are the norm, whereas in K they are super powered humans.
1. Guilty Crown
Description: In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ – a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group “Funeral Parlor” and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life – assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor’s charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.
Number of Episodes: 22
Release Year: 2011
Through the unique plot and character design of K I think that Guilty Crown would be a good fit. Guilty Crown not also goes into the military side of things but also has an interesting mystery that lingers until closer to the end of the series. The art work in Guilty Crown is superb, but in my opinion I still like the colors in K more. Guilty Crown is filled with just as much- if not more- action as K and a different but equally as cool way of fighting.
