The main male character in TD has similar traits to Kodaka and is somehow a magnet to odd girls. I would recommend TD for the similarity of setting and character relationships.

both haganai and toradora are comedy animes focused around a guy who has been misunderstood becuase of his delinquent looks and a girl who is completly untouchable. both have a cast of charecters around them to support and misinterprete their every action. i personally enjoyed haganai more and it can be a much more lets say mature than toradora but if you liked one 90% chance you will like the other

Kenji likes to think that he and his gang of friends are the bad boys of their school. That is, until he meets the four insane girls of a game-making club whose personalities are all super weird (and a little on the violent side). When Kenji’s forced to join their little group, his life quickly takes a turn for the outrageous.

D-Frag follows the similar theme of a club, a protagonist who is percieved as a delinquent but isn't, and the bully-ish female club member seen in Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukanai. Also, it is obviously heading in a harem direction.

SeiyaManG SeiyaManG says...

These shows have almost identical starting points. Both are about (not-really) deliquents who are forced to join a club and accidentally end up in various hilarious and romantic situations. 

Haganai strikes the more serious notes, focusing more on the relationship dynamics, while D-Fragments takes a lighter tone and focuses more on the humor.

Both series are concerned with a guy who is for various reasons very unpopular among girls at first, but eventually finds his way to their hearts while having heaps of fun with everyone.

Sora no Manimani

Sora no Manimani

Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

Both of these shows are comedies about a high school club and its interesting members. Most of the shows revolve around club activities, trips, and some minor character development. If you enjoyed one you might enjoy 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?

Angel Beats is fast paced, Boku wa is slower. Both have the same sort of feel, with an isolated group of friends spending a lot of time together, although Boku wa... doesn't have quiet the same back-story that Angel Beats has. Both are more club-activity based, and we see next to nothing of school life itself. While Angel Beats seems to be driven and focused, Boku wa... is calmer and more free flowing anime. Both focus on club activities and a sort of school life, but Angel Beats has more of a supernatural role to it (which is necessary and set up quiet well).
