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!
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
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!
Angel Beats is a very good show on its own, though not as similar to Baka test as other shows I have recommended. Its got a slightly more serious tone, however shares the same over the top humour and violence. I'd definitely say watch both.
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
I recommend Boku wa simply for the random, silly humor. I loved the comedic timing of Baka to Test and have yet to find an anime in the same league but Boku wa was enjoyable as well.
I find those two shows really similar , MC guy is also in middle of harem and there are 2 girls fighting over him.
I won't go into details but Boku wa tomodachi may not be hilarious as Baka to test but I'll guarantee that both are really enjoyable and both have pretty nice music/ost with awesome animation.
Also both 2nd seasons focuses on drama.
Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
These comedies are both humor at its best! The main male lead in these shows are both clueless when it comes to women despite being the object of the female lead's affection or abuse depending on the situation. Sousuke from FMP? can't adjust to average highschool life due to his military background while Akihisa from BTT has trouble due to his idiocy. Both their highschool experiences are anything but normal and their interactions with others are often hilarious.
Definitely a must watch for both of these. Although the humour and setting are not identical, and there are others more alike to Baka Test for example, they are both excellent and well worth watching!
Ayumu was murdered by a serial killer – at least, he was. For after the mysterious Eucliwood Hellscythe revives him, he changes from a human to a zombie, much to his dismay. Now, in addition to being unable to die, the boy must see to the whims of his supernatural, silent companion – but things continue to get worse from there. As once Ayumu accidentally steals a magical girl named Haruna's powers, he is tasked with the embarrassing, obnoxious task of being a magical girl – err, boy – in her stead! Then with the addition of a hostile vampire ninja to his household, can Ayumu manage to maintain his new home life, fight against attacking monsters, and track down the person who killed him all while attempting to keep what little dignity he has left in tact?
When I began watching Kore wa Zombie desu ka? the first thing that came to mind was "This is like Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, only more violent." And it is. The two use very similar character types, and even more similar styles of humor. Kore wa Zombie desu ka? is, like I said, more violent, and also more ecchi, but otherwise, if you liked one of them, I'm pretty sure you'd like the other.
Very similar to Baka test, in the way the protagonist is dragged along unwillingly into idiotic situations by his friends and companions. This, D-Frag, No-Rin and Baka test are extremely similar, and I recommend watching all of them if you like this style of humour.
Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day! Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?
both of the series involves in school with multiple characters from 1 class to another and both of them have the same stupid main characters both are really funny random sometime too bad baka to test is quite short but theres a second season on the making
Very similar in plot, and great for laughs. If you felt Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu was too short, this will be a great pick up. The whole delinquent/nice guy schtick is well played in both of these anime. A must see.
