Special A is not ment at first to look any different than others slice of life types, but that changes when you have to get through the first 6 episodes so it becomes addictive. You're about to love and can't wait to see more of SoreSekai from the second episode. The relationship from Special A is a bit more normal than the boy and older-enough-to-not-be-a-teenager-anymore gril in the SoreSekai.

These series have many same things. Martial arts and hided romance... In Special A things are not so difficult like in Ranma ½ but there is many but tiny commons. (Megumi writes the text to paper like Genma and Hikari is bad at cooking like Akane is.

If you enjoyed watching Hatenkou Yuugi then you'd be pleased to watch Special A and vice-versa.Although in general, Special A and Hatenkou Yuugi are different due to the setting of place, occupation and reason of the anime plot, there are similarities between these two animes.
Now the first thing that gives the whole similaity point away is that THEY ARE BOTH OPTIMISTIC people. Very happy infact Rahzel from HY reminded me of Hikari from SA within 6 minutes into the first episode. Both girls tend to look on the bright side a little too much which causes companions of theirs to nut at them. They are both strong and excel in physical skills. There is a small age different between these two girls and you will also realise that Rahzel and Hikari look very much alike, with long black hair and the slim frame.
Special A generalizes in school life and the goal of beating the love interest in academic, physical and other abilities althugh always failing to do so, whereas Hatenkou Yuugi is based around a girl with a rough past, forced to see the world by her foster father and ending up with two companions whom although like oil and water, seem to be tied together in surprising harmony.
Special A is the choice for a lighter read whereas Hatenkou holds a serious and more negative story withing another story. Both animes are supported greatly by comedy and you will not be disappointed by one anime more than another if it comes to funny scenes. Although both animes are light in romance and not heavily into love, Special A provides you with more romance scenes between the heroine and her love interest than Hatenkou Yuugi which is more about getting to know other while encountering a journey that changes there lives.
