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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
