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 F class 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!
Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?
Both of these series share a similar style and utilize similar means of delivering jokes. The cast for each series is also simlar.
If you are a fan of either series, you should enjoy both.
I can't exactly say these two are similar but the characterization is unique in both.... both feature many weirdos & their interaction with each other, however thats the best part about these two.... while 'working!!' is bit more matured, non echie type, 'baka to test to shoukanju' is more perverted..... however both will give a unique feeling which is sure to be liked..... if you like one you will surely like other.....
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.
Two animes with such an emulative spirit ;) The main themes are a kind of similar - main crews of losers rise against the 'high class' and want to prove they are not losers. The main characters are also similar as they have to fight their way to the top. Both animes are pretty mind-blowing and funny. If you liked one, you would definitely like the other.
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!
After collapsing in the street bloodied and battered, You Satou has no recollection of what happened to him – the only thing he remembers is going to the supermarket to buy a bento lunchbox. After having bizarre encounters the entire following day including a stern warning to stay away from the store, You returns that night to buy dinner. But when he spies the shelf of half-priced bento and reaches out for one, the penniless teen finds himself thrust into a world where the rush to get a good deal becomes an epic battle in which only the strongest survive…
While Baka to Test's concept of duelling students with their power determined by grades is absurd, Ben-To is... similiar with it's (mostly) students fighting for discounted bentos. To be fair, they're both lacking much sense but make up for it with wacky, entertaining situations and a fun cast of characters. None are too bright, but both are great fun when they're about comedy or simply beating on the hapless main.
