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.

School Days and H20: Footprints in the Sand are both harem anime that bring a psychological aspect to the genre.  They both have unexpected plot twists that keep the viewer interested throughout the anime.
