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!

MM! and BakaTest are two weird series with similar art, similar characters and same feelings. MM! is bit more mature, but they're both high school comedies / romances. losers are included. and one more word to describe: *facepalm*


Each of these series are mainly comedies with a bit of romance thrown in. Each series also occurs in a highschool.


Probably the biggest similarity and biggest part of each series is the comedy with a touch of romance thrown in and they both deal in things of the preverted nature and use these things to fairly good success.  Either series is good to get more than enough laughs out of anyone watching it.


If you liked the different type of characters in one of the series you can probably appreciate what the other series did. They're all very unique. MM has a lot more mature jokes.

if you liked one, check out the other.



Both are set in a school setting with really unique characters, at times the viewer may question why they're are watching them, but however these concerns are buried with absolutely epic episodes, both are really good... However MM! is a bit more mature...


MM! and Baka to Test are two humour-based shows(with some romance included)that take place in interesting high schools and both include an extremely colourful cast of characters. If one of these shows had dying of laughter at points, make sure to check the other one out.


If there is one thing these two have in common, it's that they both pack on the physical abuse on the main male protagonists. But played for laughs of course, which is what these two school-life anime are all about. Baka to Test is the more ridiculous of the two, but they're great if you're in the mood for some slapstick and hilarious dialogue.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

OHSHC is a terrific parody of shoujo clichés and famous moments while Baka to Test is one for shounen. They're incredibly similar to how their structured. So if you liked either because of it's mocking humor then you might like the other.


Ouran High School Host Club and Baka to test to shoukanjuu have the same kind of humor. While OHSHC can be seen as a parody to shojo anime, baka to test to shoukanjuu can be interpreted as the same for shonen. Sometimes both anime don’t take them too serious. So if you enjoyed one you’ll probably like the other as well.


With parody-based series Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Ouran High School Host Club each bring their own style of mocking humor.  Baka to Test focuses on a shounen aspect while Ouran is geared more towards shoujo.  Both series are meant for the same types of audiences.


Both Ouran High School Host Club and Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu are hilarious random comedies that don't really focus on a story. If you like one, you will like the other.


Great parodies and slapstick comedy.  Focuses less on plot and character and more romantic comedy and highschool antics.  Great time killer and school life anime.


Ouran High School Host Club captues the zing and zang that Baka and Test has. They always keep it exciting and never let you expect what will happen next. This is a perfect anime that you'll enjoy.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

Baka to Test and Azumanga Daioh are two random comedies with a large main cast. Always having a few of the characters in the spotlight, they turn the most ordinary events into something hilarious. Note that Baka to Test is more perverted, where Azumanga is cuter, but if you loved one of these shows for how they delivered the comedy, make sure to check out the other!


Each of these series are extremely random forms of comedy, often switching focus between any one of their large list of main characters. These series are both hilarious, so if you liked one you are sure to like the other.


Comedy; either through visual or dialogue, is the strong point of these two. Both in a school setting and where the characters provide the laughs, they're both alike in how delightful and smile infecting they are. They're both mainly episodic, so a "plot" doesn't really interfere with the laughs too much.


Azumanga Daoih and Baka to test to Shoukanjuu main characters are high school students. Both of them have their idiots and their genius. Both of them have their random comedy moments and a simple plot :)



Satoshi Yabe is the newest employee at Kamohashi Elementary School. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, he’s thrilled to finally be fulfilling his dream of being a teacher – but little did Satoshi know that he’d be assigned to class 6-3, a group that houses none other than the violent and perverted Marui triplets! Between the girls trying to hook him up with the busty school nurse, dealing with the unfortunate consequences of a hamster named 'Titties' and other misadventures, Satoshi’s dream of an uneventful school life has come to an end!

Both Mitsudomoe and Baka to Test are very funny and have much humor.

Both occur in a school environment.


while Mitsudomoe is ecchi, Baka to Test only learns how to be. while Baka to Test has romantic elements, Mitsudomoe is too perverted for it. anyway, they have a similar set-up and type of humor, so you may enjoy both series


In Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Mitsudomoe, the humor of the surrounding environment is a crucial part of both series engaging the plot and the characters.


While both 'baka to test to shoukanju' & 'mitsudomoe' have unique plot they share many comic releif moments... apart from many differences such as 'mitsudomoe' is more episodic, more perverted both have many things in common such as 'unique characterization', 'non-logic funny moments etc., both these shows features 'idiotic weirdos' running all over the series but thats what made them more liking.... if you like one don't forget to try the other.... you will surely like the both.... ^_^

My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

Good-looking Kanade Amakusa would prefer nothing more than to have a normal high school life. But due to his "Absolute Choice", a mental curse compelling him to decide between two outrageous options such as sniffing a smutty magazine on the ground versus eating it in public, everyone thinks he’s a total weirdo! One day, the boy chooses that a beautiful girl will fall from the sky, and much to his surprise, his choice becomes reality! Her name is Chocolat, and she’s come with a message: God will strike a deal with Kanade in the form of missions that might just cure his suffering. Sounds trouble-free enough compared to what he’s already gone through - except they’re on a whole other level of extreme craziness than the choices he already makes daily! Can Kanade successfully clear these outrageous challenges, or will he be forever rejected by his classmates and remain an outcast?!

These are both fast paced comedies. The plots are very different. In Baka to Test the students fight to pass tests. In My Mental Choices one boy is forced to make multiple choice quizzes that appear in his mind that effect his reality.

However, these shows have the same style of humor with fast paced jokes. They both feature a male surrounded my cute females that get in on the jokes and have their own quirks. If you like faster paced comedies that often have a random element then you should try these shows.


Both have common environments and the jokes have the same humor type, if you like one is almost sure that will like the other one.


While Baka to Test is filled with morons and a moron notorious for being a moron (Akihisa), My Mental Choices Yadda Yadda is filled with oddball characters, nororious to get their own group of being crazy people, kinda like in Baka to Test. The crazies in both series get into some wacky situations with comedy at the wheel, and it works. From word-play to borderline absurd situations, slapstick and straight-faced comedy to situations that simply go completely against the main, it dishes some real nice comedy and has some variety while working in some running gags.

The fates aren't kind to the mains (Amakusa of Mental Choices and Akihisa of Baka to Test) and constantly make them the butt monkey but it also works in their favor of getting chicks to dig them, turning their lives into school life comedies that don't entirely focus on romance, despite it's lingering, hinted at presence. And Comedy > Romance by far. Both are pretty good comedies so if you like one, be sure to check out the other.


A male lead in an unfortunate Position surrounded by quirky female potential love interests that leads to comedy. That is the simularity.
