Ishiyama High is home to a whole host of delinquents, including Oga, a legendary badass who's downright devilish. One day Oga finds a man floating down a river, after which the man splits open to reveal a baby inside – but it’s no ordinary baby! The cute tot is actually Beelzebub, the future king of the demons! And as Oga is as mean as they come, Beelzebub latches on to its newfound 'father', much to the other demons' dismay. Now, in addition to battling rival gangs and becoming the strongest delinquent around, Oga must buy diapers, comfort and carry around an annoying baby who's more of a devil than he is!
Both Beelzebub and Assassination Classroom deal with school settings, are funny, and have students who are looking to get stronger and become better fighters. Each main character is also fighting for a goal that is evil. I would say that Beelzebub is a more intense with fights and things of that nature, while Assassination Classroom is more of a lighter goofy read. The two are polar opposites with very similar settings. If you liked one, it would be worthwhile to check out the other.

Assassination Classroom and Mahou Sensei Negima both deal with classrooms where each character is important. The teacher in both are each highly active with the students of their class as well. That is the big similarity between the two, so if that is something you like then check out the other.
