Chrome Shelled Regios

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, though different in the type of powers that they wield, have abilities that make them OP in every way as well as a mysterious past that is slowly revealed to show you just how amazing the main character is. They also take place in a school setting with the main character having recently joined.

both the main characters have a mysterious past, both are sometimes very OP. High school themed.

Both these anime are perfect for anyone who is sick of watching Shounen animes where the MC is stupid, unskilled, weak and always forgets any lesson they have lernt less than two episodes later.

The protagonists of both programs have done all their leveling up before the show and have valid reasins for not using all his skills and power and hiding them.

Magi

Magi

In a sand-swept land of caravans, brigands and adventurers, legends tell of the ominous dungeon towers that suddenly appeared 14 years ago. It's said that by clearing one of these prisons, you can obtain treasure beyond your wildest dreams, and even form a contract with magical genies of immense power - assuming you make it out alive. In this world, Alibaba is a young rogue who wants nothing more than to get rich by clearing all of the world's dungeons, starting with the nearby tower Amon; Aladdin is a curious young boy with a magical flute and a hidden ability; and Morgiana is a slave who can't escape her chains. As their fates intertwine, the three find themselves wandering the land, battling powerful enemies, and taking a stand against powerful forces that seek to corrupt the weak and innocent.

From the first episode of the anime "The Irregular at Magic High School" I knew that has many similarities with Code Geass.

Bot animes have the same vibe, are more action based with a little romance and they have great animation style.

You should definitely check them both!

A brother loving his sister to bits and going as far as killing while working on gaining power. That's what both animes have in common. Also the ways how the main male characters of these animes are using super complex strategy in order to achive their goals.

The Fruit of Grisaia

The Fruit of Grisaia

The story of the anime takes place at the private Mihama Academy, where five girls who seem normal attend the school due to "certain reasons." A sixth student "with reasons" named Yūji Kazami transfers in. Yūji has an ego with such darkness that he does not fade in comparison to the five girls, who are so different from the norm. As they each meet each other, they deepen their understanding of one another. Through the small bits of progress they make, each of their hearts will be affected. When Yūji arrives, a story of girls who are trapped by their pasts begins.

Both series have main male characters who have pasts that were meant to be kept secret, and military based. The main difference is the fact that Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is magic but if you like one, you will like the other.

To tell you the truth i have a hard time starting new anime so the first few times i saw this anime recommended to me i just cast it aside,but after after watching the fruit of grisaia (and loving it of course) i found myself wanting more.I will say the story and anime are fairly different from each other, so far i have seen 13 of the fruit of grisaia and 21 of magic highschool and the fruit of grisaia's story is a lot darker so if you have watched the fruit of grisaia, magic high will be a step down and if youve seen magic high grisaia will be a step up (in the blood darker story and sad twisted kind of stuff) But if youve seen one definitely give the other a shot!

Both anime feature a protagonist who have been mistreated or thrown away by their own family due to the fact that their inherent powers do not meet their family's standards.  After overcoming these barriers, we arrive in the current storyline of the anime where the protagonists are seen as underdogs by many, but quickly prove that they are in fact the very opposite and possess strength that rivals that of the strongest members of the family that threw them away.
