Sky Wizards Academy

Sky Wizards Academy

Forced to retreat to floating cities due to an invasion of magical armored insects, humanity must now depend on Sky Wizards to battle the menace via mid-air battles. Once known as the “Black Master Swordsman,” Kanata Age is now considered a traitor and is assigned to lead an F-class of mismatched mages. Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she's failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she's a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition but zero confidence. It's up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.

-Both MCs are teachers.

-MCs left their previous job to become a teacher.

-Both MCs are hated at first(Sky Wizards Academy: Traitor, Akashic Records: Lazy bastard).

-Both use 'magic'

They're both fun comidic stories about outcast teachers. Though Akashic Records is a little more on the humor side. These 2 would be a good fit.

They have nearlly the same support cast down to looks and similar personalities. They feature strong male lead with exceptional skills in a magical world with children leading most of the support harem like nearly all girl support cast.

Akashic Records of Bastard Magical Instructor and The Irregular at Magic High School (TIAMHS) are very similar animes in themes. Both animes have a high school setting with young protagonists that are *slight spoiler for Akashic Records* overpowered. Don't let the word overpowered turn you off either of these animes, while it is an overdone theme these are definitley two of the most succesful ones in recent memory. Akashic records deals more with magic while TIAMH is more sci-fi (technology). Akashic Records is definitley the superior series so if you come from watching TIAMHS you are in for a treat. Both protagonists are cool and powerful but Akashic Records holds more emotion and plenty of more subplots.

You're Being Summoned, Azazel OVA

When summoning a demon, the summoner must supply a worthy sacrifice – something important to them – as an offering. However, when Rinko summons the terrifying Azazel one day, she only has cleaning in mind and stew to show for it! Alongside the equally-as-frightening Moloch, the two demons must cater to her and Akutabe’s whims, but there’s a catch: in the human world, within a protective barrier, they take the form of two cute, cuddly creatures!

Jet Jet says...

 Both shows possess irresponsible MCs, who are goofy and don't really have qualifications for their respective occupations at all, but manage to sort any epic challenge anyway. Akashic records is highly rushed, while Captain Tylor is kinda oldshool, but both boast that unorthodox half comedic, half dramatic vibe.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

This anime as a lot of magic and humor in it. Even though the characters in Fairy Tail didn’t go to school they still got stronger. This anime has the characters learning new things about magic everyday so they can  defend themselves in battle if needed. In all they are very similar yet very different from each other.

Assassination Classroom

Assassination Classroom

A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he's the best teacher they've ever had!

Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Ikki Kurogane may have come from a long line of Blazers, people with the ability to create weapons or devices manifested from their souls, but as far as the Hagun Academy is concerned, he's been a major disappointment in the magical powers department. He is so disappointing, in fact, that he's earned the unfortunate nickname of the "Worst One". However, things change for Ikki in the most surprising way when Princess Stella Vermillion, the most promising Rank-A Blazer to come along in many years, decides to transfer to Hagun. When she challenges him to a duel where the loser must obey the winner for the rest of their life, the last thing anyone expects is that the Worst One might prove to be a match for the Crimson Princess… and the unforeseen consequences will push the boundaries of society itself!
