Now a teenager, Akko has entered a prestigious magic academy in hopes of following in her idol’s footsteps, but much to her dismay she discovers that magic isn’t all fun and games.

Both short anime features kids in a school of magic, and are both rather lighthearted romps. Little Witch Academia is significantly better in every aspect, but don't let that stop you from watching Quiz Magic Academy.
Want more 'kids in school learning about magic'? Little Witch Academia and Quiz Magic Academy are for you. Just note that Little Witch is the FAR SUPERIOR of the two on all levels.
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!
In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland. This is Zuellni, a mobile city unique for having a consciousness in the form of ‘electronic fairies’. Moreover, Zuellni is an academy where the next generation of powerful Heavens-Blade wielders gather to pit their strength against each other in inter-platoon competitions. Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone, and unknown powers beyond the academy taking an interest in Zuellni, Layfon joining the team is only the start of all their troubles.
Both anime are about a group of students that are going to school to learn how to harness their powers properly. Quiz Magic Academy is way more lighthearted and to the point where Regios takes its time with an actual plot and lots of wonderful developments. Check out one if you liked the other as they are very similar and tell good stories.
Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.
Maburaho also takes place in a high school/academy setting with characters with magical powers or who use weapons.
While it is a harem and ecchi, unlike Quiz Magic Academy. It has good comedic moments and entertaining action.
