If you liked the Angel Beats! anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Join Haruhi, Yuki, Kyon, Mikuru, Itsuki, and the rest of the gang in their all-new adventures. From creepy dreams, dodge ball games, quiz shows, and cosplay contests, the excitement never stops! Can Kyon, the only normal student of the SOS Brigade, make sense of all these odd occurrences, attempt to avoid them, and hopefully survive them with his sanity intact? With the adventure and mystery-seeking Haruhi in his way, along with aliens, espers, and time travelers, he certainly has his doubts!
When you think of the plot series of Angel Beats some how it just translates right away into The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The whole entire feeling to the show is similar with a group of kids in a school setting fights against supernatural phenomenon. The lead heroines are spitting images of each other putting on a gutsy attitude while leading the protagonist around in a world completely different from what they are used to.
The characters are just so alike! Haruhi and Yuri are both hyperactive female characters who run a group (SSS-Yuri, SOS-Haruhi) and they both manage to drag the main male character down with them. (Kyon and Otonashi). They also both issue punishments if the member of their group fail the mission.
Kyon and Otonashi are both cynical and always questioning everything their 'leader' does.
Lots of the other characters have similar traits as well, they're both set in a Highschool scene, and generally not in the actual lessons. They both have a supernatural feel to them.
If you liked one you'll almost definatly like the other! (But watching both make sure you have a tissue on hand for the tears of laughter!)
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.
Each show involves a male protagonist that, without realizing, quickly becomes one of the most important person on their society. Each is faced with a choice that could change the future of those around him significantly. While each show uses compedy in it's storytelling Air Gear has more of an ecchi feel while Angel Beats is more serious.
One day, while testing out his new video camera on a bridge in town, Kaito Kirishima sees a bright blue light in the sky and is inexplicably knocked over the side, awakening the next morning in bed with no memory of the event. But upon heading to school, the boy notices a new face that’s familiar to him somehow - her name is Ichika Takatsuki, and she’s new in town. Kaito’s friends, noticing his interest in the girl, all resolve to make a movie this summer and cast her as the lead, to which she immediately approves. Now, the group embarks on what will be a truly memorable summer that no one will forget, as Kaito and Ichika slowly, and clumsily, begin to fall in love.
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
Apart from the fact that these two are amongst the best anime of 2010 (always in my humble opinion), they also share the same kind of comedy. A bit more comedy in Baka to test, a pinch of drama in Angel Beats and a sense of romance in both (though romance is not really prominent in either). I highly recommend watching both!
Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…
Bakemonogatari and Angel Beats! Are really similiar, both of them contain contrast between Funny things and something serious in episodes. The main protoganist of the Bakemonogatari and Angel Beats! is voiced by same person. So I higly recommend to watch it.
