It’s summer time, and even when they’re not at school, the students of Class 2-F are as idiotic as ever. With Akihisa and Yuji attempting to pick up girls at the beach and a simple trip to the festival turning into a cross-dressing beauty pageant, the holidays are proving to be just as stressful for the boys. But even back at school, life doesn't settle down. With Hideyoshi and his sister swapping places for the day, games of "strip doubt" after class, and academic training camps, it seems this semester will be just as hectic as the last.
If you enjoyed Accel World, you'd likely enjoy Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 2. Like the first series of Baka to Test to, these anime are both based much within a school environment and school life, contain strong elements of 'transformation' into avatars for the sake of battle within a virtual environment, and also contain very similar notes of mismatched love interests and competing females. Both of these series contain a sense of trial and achievement - one with a slightly more contextually serious undertone, and the other with a more comedic one - however both are main drivers in character and plot development throughout each series.
I recommend these both ways, as the common elements are fresh and distinct enough for both to be appealing to either audience.
In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?
Hack and Accel world are quite alike with using the game concept, whilt in Hack the character is trapped and accel world it is optional to join and leave they both have their playing cards.
In accel world you are bound by loosing your points in which when happens you loose the application and the ability to play the game, all memory of it and can never install it again so your still grasped around the neck carefully.
Hack is about someone trapped in a game who cannot log off, essentially trapped like in a cage as he searches for a way to leave the world.
I admit im not into the game genre so i have issues finding much to say about either but these two felt quite a like to me and also are one of the only series i found tolerable in this genre so as a outsider to the genre i think they are both worth giving a shot if you like the genre and enjoyed one or the other.
An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world.

Always up for a challenge, the pair quickly take on the obstacles that come their way, whether it be restoring lowly humanity's good name compared with the other races or helping influence who will become the next king.
