The similarity between the two series comes mostly from the fact that both feature a badass male lead who pretends to be weak. Also both take place in some sort of special high school. Content wise Gun x Clover has some strong ecchi which Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei does not. The story in Gun x Clover story is not it's strong point either. Nonetheless if you are after the strong guy pretending to be weak theme, then both pf those series should prove to be worth reading.
Both series take place in magical school. In both the male lead is underestimated by most of the other students, but the truth is he is actually very strong. In both series he also has a devoted yandere (or close) following him around. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is definitelly better than Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai, but if you liked one, the other should still prove interesting.
In both series there is a magical school in which students are ranked one way or another and our male lead is ranked very low. However in reality he is extremly strong. If you dig such plot you could do yourself a favor and read both of those series. Just keep in mind that Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is waaaaaaay better than Tora Kiss.
