Synopsis:

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!

Air Gear

Air Gear

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.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

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!

Ben-To

Ben-To

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.

Clannad After Story

Clannad After Story

Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.

Maybe a weird rec, but I can explain it

Both stories take a little amount of time to let you know how the characters are. What is more interesting is how they do things and what happened to them in the past.

Clannad is the best in drama

Baka test to shoukanjuu in comedy

Both very original and the best of their kind(my opinion)

If you're 'done' watching the one, then you'd probably like to watch the other (too much drama or comedy isn't always good :P)

You'll never regret watching 1 of those.

Cromartie High School

Cromartie High School

At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?

High schools, where one has attractive gals and Hideyoshi, the other has... well, hardly any females or anyone remotely attractive. But there's Freddie. Even though both are school-based comedies with durastically different art styles, they have their fair share of the straight man/foolish man comedy routine, gags and some hilarious troll logic.
