Both are concentrated around unreasonable love and date each other. Where one thinks that cannot live without another one and especially no more details about private life or personality of characters are explained. Both based on dating ero games where you have to choose one of girls. Amagami SS depicts what happens in all possible choices, whereas School Days shows tragic consequences of bad choice among all other possible bad choices.

When a group of children discover a strange cave at the beach, their lives are forever changed. Inside they find a hide out filled with computers and a man named Kokopelli who gives them a curious offer: to participate in a special game in which they save Earth from fifteen giant monsters. To defeat the invaders, he will give them a powerful mecha of black armor. The children eagerly sign the contract, name their new weapon Zearth, and must now take turns to pilot it; but the 'game' is in fact all too real and the consequences of battle become the stuff of nightmares. With no option to cancel the contract, is there any way to stop the game before it is too late for all of them?

Are you tired of happy endings? Do you want bunnies to supernova into a sea of misery, with orphans kicking around washed up pop cans along it's beaches? Would you like some constant angst and melancholy to carry a series to it's end? Fantastic! Then by all means check out Bokurano if you enjoyed this about School Days, and vice-versa.

Both series deal with the more serious and painful side of high school romances that can be very difficult to watch.

For some reason, these two anime really reminded me of each other. Alright, School Days does not have any battle scenes and Black Rock Shooter doesn't have any ecchi. But the atmosphere was quite the same; it starts off (at least, the school part in BRS) all cute and happy, but turns darker and darker, and eventually, you're not sure or the series will have a happy end. If you liked BRS or School Days, you might want to check the other one out as well.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...

School Days starts out as the most cliche high school love triangle you've ever seen and quickly starts trolling you.  Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica starts out as the most cliche magical girl show and quickly starts trolling you.  The biggest difference I can see is that Madoka actually has some decent writing, even if it is painfully predictable.

If you liked School Days, you'll probably love Madoka.
