10. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu

Synopsis – When a mysterious creature chops the moon down to a permanent crescent, the students of class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Middle School find themselves confronted with an enormous task: assassinate the creature responsible for the disaster before Earth suffers a similar fate. However, the monster, dubbed Koro-sensei (the indestructible teacher), is able to fly at speeds of up to Mach 20, which he demonstrates freely, leaving any attempt to subdue him in his extraterrestrial dust. Furthermore, the misfits of 3-E soon find that the strange, tentacled beast is more than just indomitable—he is the best teacher they have ever had!

Adapted from the humorous hit manga by Yuusei Matsui, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu tells the story of these junior high pupils as they polish their assassination skills and grow in order to stand strong against the oppressive school system, their own life problems, and one day, Koro-sensei.

Similarity –Baka and test is about a group of students who are in the lowest class of their school F class, they get looked down upon by the other students while in f class their goal is to challenge each class above them and get to the A class, now how is this similar to Ansatsu Kyoushitsu.
Ansatsu Kyoushtu is about E class student the lowest class in the school who are looked down upon by the peers, but their goal is to kill their teacher, both shows also share a similar comedic style, so if you like one or another I recommend to check them out.

9. Gamers!

Synopsis – Keita Amano is a typical high school gamer living out an average student’s life. One day, however, he has an unexpected meeting with the cutest girl in school that makes him want to disappear without a trace!

This girl, Karen Tendou, is an exemplary student who is proclaimed to be the school’s idol. She discovers that Amano is a gamer, and this newfound knowledge incites a passionate desire within her to recruit him into the game club. Upon visiting the club, Amano is forcefully made aware of a side to gaming wildly different than the one he loves so dearly.

Tendou’s interest in Amano begins shaking up what was once an uneventful life, filling it with spontaneity, awkwardness, and a little bit of mayhem. As a result, every day becomes a comical battle for Amano’s sanity as he tries to adapt to these wild, unexpected changes.

Similarity – – The two main male characters have a similar relation, which is often funny.
– The main character is in a love triangle.
– Both Animes are just hilarious.
– Both animes are related to games somehow.

I would say “Gamers!” is a fusion between Baka to Test and Toradora! but obviously, its own essence that differentiates from both animes. It’s a very very good anime and I mean it!

8. Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku (TV)

Synopsis- To be around cute girls wearing cute clothing is all Eruna Ichinomiya desires. Since Mikagura High School happens to have the cutest uniforms around, she decides to enroll in this prestigious high school known for its cultural clubs.

However, she does not realize that joining a club is mandatory, and representatives from each club must battle for a ranking. Based on these rankings, club members are awarded housing and food. Chasing after Seisa Mikagura, the most beautiful girl in school, Eruna joins the going-home club but finds herself thrust into fighting the next club battle. With the other club representatives wielding unique powers, the competition is sure to be fierce!

Based on the popular song series, Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku follows Eruna as she explores the various clubs in school and assists the members with their troubled lives, all of whom are also vying for the top spot in school.

Similarity – Both share colorful cast of characters and have similar plot of school battles where winnings get you in more comfortable amenities. The difference is the yuri romcom is more prevalent in Mikagura as opposed to basic comedy in Baka & Test.

7. Majimoji Rurumo

Synopsis – After an unfortunate accident, completely normal heterosexual high school student Kouta Shibaki is branded as the school pervert. With girls avoiding Kouta like the plague, truly the young man’s worst nightmare has come to fruition! One day in the school library, he stumbles upon a peculiar book said to possess the power to summon witches. Partly out of desperation, partly out of boredom, Kouta decides to play along with the joke of a book, until an apprentice witch going by the name of Rurumo Maji Mojiruka appears before him. In an unusual turn of events, Kouta ends up helping Rurumo with some general witchery tasks in exchange for his soul being spared.

Majimoji Rurumo follows the misadventures of Rurumo as she attempts to persuade Kouta to use 666 magical wish-granting tickets in her efforts to become a fully-fledged witch, unaware that every time she grants a wish, Kouta’s life is shortened. Aided by Rurumo’s familiar Chiro, Kouta must decide between helping Rurumo or saving his own life.

Similarity – Although not entirely similar, some elements are. Both Shibi and Yoshi are perverts, perverted idiots at that, and are willing to do anything to look under a girl’s skirt. However, both have a sense right and wrong and moral judgment and are willing to save their friend(s).
Also, Shibi and Yoshi always get beat up by girls due to their infamous perverted reputation and both their friends often get them into trouble through “persuasion

6. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

Synopsis – When abandoned kittens and his good conscience force second-year Sorata Kanda to move into Suimei High School’s infamous Sakura Hall, the satellite dorm and its eccentric, misfit residents turn his life upside down. The decidedly average Sorata finds it difficult to fit in with the bizarre collection of dorm residents like Misaki, an energetic animator; Jin, a playwright playboy; Ryuunosuke, a reclusive programmer; and Chihiro, the dorm manager, art teacher, and party girl.

Sorata’s friend Nanami, a second-year student and aspiring voice actress, pushes him to find new owners for the many cats so that he can quickly move back into the regular dorms. However, his desire to escape Sakura Hall wavers when the pet-like and infantile second year Mashiro Shiina, a world-class artistic savant looking to become a mangaka, transfers in during the spring trimester and quickly latches onto him.

Supported by each other’s quirks, Sorata and Mashiro come out of their shells and trigger change in the lives of those around them. Based on the light novel series of the same name, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo explores the fine threads connecting talent, hard work, romance, and friendship with its ensemble cast.

Similarity – Misfits in a school setting and love triangle. Baka to Test has more comedy whereas Sakuraso is heavy on drama. The main characters have strikingly similar traits. While Sorata is an average guy among high achievers, Akihisa is the dumbest in a class of dumb people. Mashiro is comparable to Mizuki since they are both are highly talented. Both the male protagonists are attracted to this talent and are strongly affected by it. Minami is comparable to Nanami since they both are attracted to the protagonist but have difficulty confessing.

5. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

Synopsis –After dying a laughable and pathetic death on his way back from buying a game, high school student and recluse Kazuma Satou finds himself sitting before a beautiful but obnoxious goddess named Aqua. She provides the NEET with two options: continue on to heaven or reincarnate in every gamer’s dream—a real fantasy world! Choosing to start a new life, Kazuma is quickly tasked with defeating a Demon King who is terrorizing villages. But before he goes, he can choose one item of any kind to aid him in his quest, and the future hero selects Aqua. But Kazuma has made a grave mistake—Aqua is completely useless!

Unfortunately, their troubles don’t end here; it turns out that living in such a world is far different from how it plays out in a game. Instead of going on a thrilling adventure, the duo must first work to pay for their living expenses. Indeed, their misfortunes have only just begun!

Similarity – Both have the same setting and moods, not to mention the same type of story telling. Or at least in the sense that at first, it seems like they have the same type of objective but then end up doing nothing with it through out the story. The characters and comedy within the story are different but they’ll both give you a good laugh and are different from the rest in the sense that they know where to hit on your funny bone to make you giggle or cry laughing.

4. Angel Beats!

Anime With Less Than 30 Episodes

Synopsis – Otonashi awakens only to learn he is dead. A rifle-toting girl named Yuri explains that they are in the afterlife, and Otonashi realizes the only thing he can remember about himself is his name. Yuri tells him that she leads the Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife Battlefront) and wages war against a girl named Tenshi. Unable to believe Yuri’s claims that Tenshi is evil, Otonashi attempts to speak with her, but the encounter doesn’t go as he intended.

Otonashi decides to join the SSS and battle Tenshi, but he finds himself oddly drawn to her. While trying to regain his memories and understand Tenshi, he gradually unravels the mysteries of the afterlife.

Similarity – They both have a group of kids in an exaggerated school setting (one school in the afterlife and one school that has students battle). They’re both comedies and both have some romance in them as well. Angel Beats is a little softer on the romance and comedy, and more emotional and deep as well. It really pulls you into the story. Baka to Test on the other-hand is a slapstick comedy that will have you laughing to yourself twenty minutes after you’ve finished watching an episode. The romance is balanced in well so that you end up loving many of the characters to boot.

3. Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero)

Synopsis – Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière is a self-absorbed mage in a world of wands, cloaks, and royalty. Although she studies at Tristain Academy, a prestigious school for magicians, she has a major problem: Louise is unable to cast magic properly, earning her the nickname of “Louise the Zero” from her classmates.

When the first year students are required to perform a summoning ritual, Louise’s summoning results in a catastrophic explosion! Everyone deems this to be yet another failure, but when the smoke clears, a boy named Saito Hiraga appears. Now Louise’s familiar, Saito is treated as a slave, forced to clean her clothes and eat off the ground. But when an unfamiliar brand is found etched on Saito’s hand from the summoning ritual, it is believed to be the mark of a powerful familiar named Gandalfr.

Wild, adventurous, and explosive, Zero no Tsukaima follows Saito as he comes to terms with his new life and as Louise proves that there is more to her than her nickname suggests.

Similarity – Both are comedies (but Baka to Test is a bit insane in a sense when it comes to its style of comedy), and both have kids that go to an academy where they practice sort of similar fighting powers. Both have the same love triangle, with a violent tsundere and a super sweet girl going for the same clumsy lead male!

Overall, Baka to Test focuses a bit more on comedy and it doesn’t take it’s plot too seriously, while Zero no Tsukaima, on the other hand, does have a comedy aspect, but it also has some very serious and dramatic elements to it. But regardless, they are very similar in many ways!

2. Accel World

Accel World

Synopsis – Haruyuki Arita is an overweight, bullied middle schooler who finds solace in playing online games. But his life takes a drastic turn one day when he finds that all his high scores have been topped by Kuroyukihime, the popular vice president of the student council. She then invites him to the student lounge and introduces him to “Brain Burst,” a program which allows the users to accelerate their brain waves to the point where time seems to stop. Brain Burst also functions as an augmented reality fighting game, and in order to get more points to accelerate, users must win duels against other players. However, if a user loses all their points, they will also lose access to Brain Burst forever.

Kuroyukihime explains that she chose to show Haruyuki the program because she needs his help. She wants to meet the creator of Brain Burst and uncover the reason of why it was created, but that’s easier said than done; to do so, she must defeat the “Six Kings of Pure Color,” powerful faction leaders within the game, and reach level 10, the highest level attainable. After the girl helps Haruyuki overcome the bullies that torment him, he vows to help her realize her goal, and so begins the duo’s fight to reach the top.

Similarity – both Baka to Test and Accel World shares a few similarities:

In both series, there is the theme of fantasy action that involves action in another setting/world. While AW takes on a more serious approach, both series presents fantastical action.

Both series main male protagonist are young boys who have a female protagonist interested in them. And of course, he has friends that support and help him in various circumstances.

Both series has a lot of comedy, gags, and fan-service in the form of beach episodes, dates, etc.

1. Hataraku Maou-sama!

Hataraku Maou sama

Synopsis – Striking fear into the hearts of mortals, the Demon Lord Satan begins to conquer the land of Ente Isla with his vast demon armies. However, while embarking on this brutal quest to take over the continent, his efforts are foiled by the hero Emilia, forcing Satan to make his swift retreat through a dimensional portal only to land in the human world. Along with his loyal general Alsiel, the demon finds himself stranded in modern-day Tokyo and vows to return and complete his subjugation of Ente Isla—that is if they can find a way back!

Powerless in a world without magic, Satan assumes the guise of a human named Sadao Maou and begins working at MgRonald’s—a local fast-food restaurant—to make ends meet. He soon realizes that his goal of conquering Ente Isla is just not enough as he grows determined to climb the corporate ladder and become the ruler of Earth, one satisfied customer at a time!

Whether it’s part-time work, household chores, or simply trying to pay the rent on time, Hataraku Maou-sama! presents a hilarious view of the most mundane aspects of everyday life, all through the eyes of a hapless demon lord.

Similarity – both main characters (Maou in Hataraku and Yoshii in Baka-Test) are both clueless when it comes to girls, or reality. They both have different reasons, but what makes them so appealing is that they are very naive and unaware of many things that have been going around them. Another way this is similar is that it shows the differentiation of social classes. In Hataraku, Maou is stuck living in a single room in an old building, due to the fact that his only job is at MagRonald’s (parody of McDonald’s), while Emi (the antagonist who later turns into a protagonist), is living in a more lofty apartment, due to the fact that she has a better job. This can be seen in Baka-Test, due to the fact that Class F has nothing in it, while Class A has many, many advantages, such as private PC’s, air-cons, heaters, plasma TV’s, etc. Both anime show the split in social classes, which is a theme that is often used in other anime, but not as ridiculously used as this. Both of these anime have very unique plots, and they both include the use of some form of fighting mechanism
