10. Kill la Kill

Kill la Kill
Synopsis – After the murder of her father, Ryuuko Matoi has been wandering the land in search of his killer. Following her only lead—the missing half of his invention, the Scissor Blade—she arrives at the prestigious Honnouji Academy, a high school unlike any other. The academy is ruled by the imposing and cold-hearted student council president Satsuki Kiryuuin alongside her powerful underlings, the Elite Four. In the school’s brutally competitive hierarchy, Satsuki bestows upon those at the top special clothes called “Goku Uniforms,” which grant the wearer unique superhuman abilities.

Thoroughly beaten in a fight against one of the students in uniform, Ryuuko retreats to her razed home where she stumbles across Senketsu, a rare and sentient “Kamui,” or God Clothes. After coming into contact with Ryuuko’s blood, Senketsu awakens, latching onto her and providing her with immense power. Now, armed with Senketsu and the Scissor Blade, Ryuuko makes a stand against the Elite Four, hoping to reach Satsuki and uncover the culprit behind her father’s murder once and for all

Similarity –The hilarious antics and OTT battles that characterize Ansatsu Kyoushitsu and Kill la Kill do nothing to undermine surprisingly strong and insightful character focuses and compelling conflicts that can get seriously intense. Imaginative and strange without being overly silly, both shows are perfect for people who love creative visuals, fun scenarios and nuanced protagonists.

9. Akame ga Kill!

Akame ga KillSynopsis – Night Raid is the covert assassination branch of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to overthrow Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has to lead him to take advantage of the child emperor’s inexperience. Without a strong and benevolent leader, the rest of the nation is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is far from commendable and that they will likely face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the revolution’s way.

This merry band of assassins’ newest member is Tatsumi, a naïve boy from a remote village who had embarked on a journey to help his impoverished hometown and was won over by not only Night Raid’s ideals, but also their resolve. Akame ga Kill! follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire and comes face-to-face with powerful weapons, enemy assassins, challenges to his own morals and values, and ultimately, what it truly means to be an assassin with a cause.

Similarity – The main characters are assassins. In Akame, the plot is serious and bloody while in Ansatsu has a funny and happy plot. They have to kill in order to save their nation.

8. Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x HunterSynopsis- Hunter x Hunter is set in a world where Hunters exist to perform all manner of dangerous tasks like capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best Hunter possible in hopes of finding his father, who was a Hunter himself and had long ago abandoned his young son. However, Gon soon realizes the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he could have ever imagined.

Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To attain their own goals and desires, together the four of them take the Hunter Exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death. Throughout their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They will meet a plethora of monsters, creatures, and characters—all while learning what being a Hunter truly means.

Similarity – While the actual Plot might be quite different, the overall atmosphere, fight scenes, and relationship between the main characters (Gon and Killua, Nagisa and Karma) are very similar.
Karma and Killua are VERY similar, both have a sort of “switch” they turn on during a fight, or to scare someone where they seem very badass and fangirls everywhere scream.
Nagisa and Gon are not as similar but have the same “I must protect my friends no matter what” kind of persona.
The animation in both is top notch and fight scenes are more than just “Nakama power” and have brains behind them.

7. Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine

The Royal Tutor (Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine)Synopsis – Equally charming and stern, Heine Wittgenstein is a brilliant man who commands respect, despite his short, childlike stature. Thus, the king of Grannzreich has called upon Heine to undertake a daunting task that has driven away many before him—become the new royal tutor to four princes who are in line for the throne.

The four heirs each have very distinct and troublesome personalities: Licht, the flirtatious youngest prince; his immature older brother Leonhard; Bruno the studious third prince; and Kai, the oldest of the four and the most reserved. Hilarity ensues as Heine attempts to connect with each of the princes in order to groom them for the throne. However, Heine’s mysterious past and dark undercurrents in the present may threaten the harmony within the kingdom.

Similarity – You could tell merely by the title that both shows are incredibly different. Their tone, comedy, characters, setting, story – in neither are they alike. If you appreciated Assassination Classroom for the action, you will be disappointed. If you appreciated Royal Tutor for, well, the concept, you may end up let down.
However, at heart, they both display the value of real education. Honestly, in both, the students learn to love learning. Dissimilar and similar at the same time, if you think about it, somewhere along the line both shows preach the same –
among other things.

6. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu


Synopsis – The story centers around Akihisa Yoshii, the “baka” of the title. His academy rigidly divides up the student body into classes based on the results of tests. The prodigies are in the A class with reclining seats complete with air conditioning, but Akihisa is in F class, the lowest rung of the school ladder which is furnished only with low, decrepit tables and worn-out straw tatami mats. A girl named Mizuki Himeji is actually one of the smartest girls in Akihisa’s sophomore year, but she had a fever on test day and was pigeonholed into the F class. Besides Mizuki (who Akihisa secretly adores), the F class also has Yuuji Sakamoto, the class president who has been Akihisa’s friend and partner-in-crime since the freshman year.

The school happens to have developed experiments to summon fantasy creatures, and Akihisa decides to rally F class to take on the higher-tiered classes and seize their perks. The F class uses the summoned creatures in an all-out battle for school supremacy.

Similarity – Both are focused on the underdog low scoring class and the class progressively becomes more ‘skilled’
In Ansatsu Kyoushitsu it’s more plot-driven and has more of a shounen-fight vibe, However, both have well rounded and lovable characters, and also hilarious moments

5. Denpa Kyoushi (TV)

Ultimate Otaku Teacher (Denpa Kyoushi)
Synopsis –Junichirou Kagami is a young published physicist, a genius, and a hopeless otaku. At the mercy of YD, a self-diagnosed illness which causes him to only be able to do what he “Yearns to Do,” Junichirou foregoes his scientific career to maintain and improve his anime blog. However, when he gets hired as a high school physics teacher; his sister Suzune, no longer willing to tolerate his NEET lifestyle, forces him to take the position.

Despite the fact that Junichirou has no motivation to teach the standard curriculum, he may still have something of value to teach his students outside of academics. With his class in tow, Junichirou embarks on an unlikely journey filled with life lessons such as acceptance of others, how to make lasting friends, and what it means to live a better life by doing what you yearn to do.

Similarity – Both are high school comedies where the teacher is a helpful, but unusual person. In the case of Assassination Classroom, the teacher is an alien who is bent on destroying the world, while in Ultimate Otaku Teacher the teacher is an otaku who uses stuff he picked up from watching anime to teach the class. Both teachers are very helpful towards their students who had a grim outlook on life prior to meeting them.

4. Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV)


Synopsis – On the surface, Koudo Ikusei Senior High School is a utopia. The students enjoy an unparalleled amount of freedom, and it is ranked highly in Japan. However, the reality is less than ideal. Four classes, A through D, are ranked in order of merit, and only the top classes receive favorable treatment.

Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is a student of Class D, where the school dumps its worst. There he meets the unsociable Suzune Horikita, who believes she was placed in Class D by mistake and desires to climb all the way to Class A, and the seemingly amicable class idol Kikyou Kushida, whose aim is to make as many friends as possible.

While class membership is permanent, class rankings are not; students in lower ranked classes can rise in rankings if they score better than those in the top ones. Additionally, in Class D, there are no bars on what methods can be used to get ahead. In this cutthroat school, can they prevail against the odds and reach the top?

Similarity – same vibes (school setting with dark undertones)
lots of characters and similar anime character tropes
both classes are not-so-smart and are trying to get to the top

3. Boku no Hero Academia

Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)
Synopsis – Mankind has developed superpowers known as “Quirks” with 80% of the population having some kind of superpower. These new abilities see the rise of both superheroes and villains. A prestigious school known as The Hero Academy trains superpowered hopefuls into the heroes the world needs. Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he’s part the 20% without a Quirk. Unwilling to give up his dream, he plans to take the exam and be accepted into a high school for budding heroes. Through a series of serendipitous events, he catches the eye of the greatest hero, All Might, who agrees to train him

Similarity – Both anime depict the specific school which train and lecture all student to become their goal job (assassin and hero) although Ansatsu Kyoushitsu emphasizes student to kill their own teacher (Koro-sensei) instead order a student to fight villain as My Hero Academia.

2. Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei The Animation

Danganronpa The AnimationSynopsis – Being just a normal student without a special talent, Makoto Naegi wins a lottery to attend the prestigious Hope’s Peak Academy where only the top prodigies attend. However, instead of this being the beginning of a wonderful high school life, it’s a ticket to despair, because the only way to graduate from Hope’s Peak Academy is to kill one of your fellow students or be one of their victims.

Similarity – Both shows involve a class of high school students who are suddenly forced into a situation where they have to kill to survive, although in Danganronpa they are killing each other instead of a specific target like in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. Both have a quirky, nonhuman antagonist and use a weird blend of humor and darker elements. The main protagonist of both series is a typical weak-looking guy who is actually quite perceptive and smart. The art style is also somewhat similar.

1. Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher OnizukaSynopsis – Onizuka is a reformed biker gang leader who has his sights set on an honorable new ambition: to become the world’s greatest teacher… for the purpose of meeting sexy high school girls. Okay, so he’s mostly reformed.

However, strict administrators and a class of ruthless delinquents stand between Onizuka and his goal and they will use any means, however illegal or low, to drive the new teacher away. Perfect, because Onizuka’s methods won’t be found in any teaching manual; he cares about the difference between legal and illegal activities about as much as he cares for the age difference between himself and a high school girl.

So get ready for math that doesn’t add up, the language you’d be slapped for using, and biology that would make a grown man blush… unless of course, you’re the Great Teacher Onizuka.

Similarity – Despite there being many differences in the setting, you will find that as you watch GTO there are many parallels to Assassination Classroom. For example, Onizuka-sensei while not being a Mach-20 octopus-like Korosensei, is very OP in his own right. Also, both of them take a sometimes unconventional approach to teaching, like to fool around but have a tendency to impart the occasional piece of wisdom to help their students.

Credits – MAL
