Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?
Medaka Kurokami is the perfect honor student. She has exemplary grades, talent at any sport she tries her hand at, comes from a rich family, is exceptionally popular, and has just become the first ever freshman student to be elected School President! During her inauguration speech she proclaims that she will endeavor to help every student with any problem if they simply submit it to the newly instated suggestion box. But with a bare-bones student council consisting of only herself and her unwilling accomplice Zenkichi, people are unsure whether to take her seriously or not. Regardless, Medaka takes each suggestion and gives her all to fulfil any request, be it ridding the kendo hall of delinquents, writing a love letter, or helping a struggling art student find his muse.
Both of these anime follow the antics of a student council and their friends with quite colorful personalities. They both have the same over-arching theme, similar humor and highly likable characters in each. They also both have their serious moments of sincerity and real life lessons.
Negi Springfield is a typical ten year-old Welsh boy -- except that he's a mage, and an English teacher at an all girls school in Japan! In order to become a full mage he has to prove himself as a teacher and find suitable partners to aid him; but above all, he has to make sure that no one discovers his secret. Much to his dismay his secret is discovered on the first day by one of his students, Asuna. To prevent Negi from being punished, Asuna agrees to become his partner -- however she isn't the only one to find out. As time goes by more of his students find out his secret. How long can he keep his powers hidden when little by little all of his students are becoming his partners?
Both these shows are fast-paced, self-aware, self-deprecating, and self-indulgent, though Seitokai more so on every count. Both have harem elements but are not predominantly harems shows in the typical sense. The big difference is that Negima is adventure oriented and plot driven while Seitokai is about school life and episodic. Seitokai is the better of the two by far, but if you liked the pace and humor of either then the other is at least worth trying.
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
I would greatly reccomend this anime as they are both rather similar. They both have the male lead, with the the females all around in the clubroom. however while in seitokai no ichizon, the male lead always thinks he is in a harem, the male lead of "Boku wa tomodachi ga sukanai" doesn't want a harem. Besides that, Ichizon is essentially "Boku wa tomodachi ga sukanai" in one room. If you like the comedy of one, you will like the comedy of the other.
After being turned down by his unrequited crush, Hachiman Hikigaya is determined to live out the rest of his high school life single and socially tuned out to avoid the folly of youth. But Hachiman's resolve is lacking compared to his guidance counselor, a woman determined to change the boy's ways. So, much to his dismay, Hachiman is soon forced to reach out to those around him by joining a club dedicated to serving others. Alongside the cold, but beautiful club president Yukino, eager Yui, and other new friends, Hachiman will try to stomach his new volunteer work and survive his ultimate fear: being involved in a typical high school romantic comedy.
Both center around groups of people who spend most of their time in comedic dialogue with each other and occasionally take action on part of a schoolmate. Both have quite eccentric male leads however Seitokai no Ichizon has pervert while Yahari has something more unique. The relationship between the male leads and their girls is fairly similar unlike most other examples in anime that I could think of. The exception being perhaps MM
