Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

OHSHC is a terrific parody of shoujo clichés and famous moments while Baka to Test is one for shounen. They're incredibly similar to how their structured. So if you liked either because of it's mocking humor then you might like the other.

bakaneko1990 bakaneko1990 says...

Ouran High School Host Club and Baka to test to shoukanjuu have the same kind of humor. While OHSHC can be seen as a parody to shojo anime, baka to test to shoukanjuu can be interpreted as the same for shonen. Sometimes both anime don’t take them too serious. So if you enjoyed one you’ll probably like the other as well.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

With parody-based series Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Ouran High School Host Club each bring their own style of mocking humor.  Baka to Test focuses on a shounen aspect while Ouran is geared more towards shoujo.  Both series are meant for the same types of audiences.

DarkSword DarkSword says...

Both Ouran High School Host Club and Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu are hilarious random comedies that don't really focus on a story. If you like one, you will like the other.

Drasticc Drasticc says...

Great parodies and slapstick comedy.  Focuses less on plot and character and more romantic comedy and highschool antics.  Great time killer and school life anime.

greenymaco greenymaco says...

Ouran High School Host Club captues the zing and zang that Baka and Test has. They always keep it exciting and never let you expect what will happen next. This is a perfect anime that you'll enjoy.

valored valored says...

Defining similarity is the over the top humour, with one character trying to be sane being dragged along by his blatantly idiotic friends. Well worth watching!

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these animes have a very loose storyline and rely more on comedic antics than plot. They take place in some not-so-regular high schools and briefly touch on day-to-day school life. However, the main focus is on the activities of each group (The Host Club or Class F). With rousing, if ludicrous, speeches and insane plots, both of these animes have a pretty similar feel to them. 

Classroom of the Elite

Classroom of the Elite

Ayanokouji Kiyotaka has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it's said that 100% of students go on to college or find employment. But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school's problem children. What's more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class. But among all the students who lead such self-indulgent lives, there is one who disagrees with it all and chooses to remain solitary, avoiding contact with others: the beautiful Horikita Suzune. She has figured out that, even though the school gives students huge amounts of money, it also offers many means of "assistance for students with no money." One month later, Ayanokouji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school...

Azukano Azukano says...

Class systems determined on grades and points. Classes compete with each other through grades of exams. Though Youkoso is more serious natured than Baka and Test.

vinod vinod says...

if we remove the comedy content from Baka and have a cynical portaganist with hidden intelligence

Epimondas Epimondas says...

Classroom looks like a more positive and intellectual clone of Baka.  The entire premise and school systems are virtually identical.  You could even say Kiyotaka looks like an older more mature version of Baka’s lead.

NeverMakkusu NeverMakkusu says...

Both shows have the same premise of students competing for something, and students from different classes making friends.

Perphones01 Perphones01 says...

I Just love this anime because it makes me laugh and smile.It's awesome how they do the animations and stuff and how they come up with it too is just so awesome.

Gabzukun Gabzukun says...

They are both about competition in the classroom and who can be the best. there are class systems based on grades and points

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

They are anime about competition in the group of class. The ranking of the class gives them different resource, encouraging them to become the first class.

However, classroom is more tense than baka and test. Baka and test is a better option if you like comedy while classroom is a better option if you like battle using knowledge.

JailBait707 JailBait707 says...

If you enjoyed Classroom of the Elite or Baka and Test due to the school system that’s based upon grades and points, which in turn can result in more privileges than you’ll most likely also enjoy the other anime. The main difference is that Classroom of the Elite is more serious and Baka and Test is just a complete comedy. You can also see somewhat similar classmate interactions as they work together. 

MM!

MM!

Seeking a cure for his depraved masochism, Taro Sado approaches the Second Volunteer Club on the recommendation of his best friend, Tatsukichi. There he finds the help of the violent but kind Mio Isurugi who promises to beat the masochism out of him by any means necessary. Will Taro be able to survive the assaults of this upperclassman, the overly-affectionate attentions of his mother and sister, and still lead a normal school life? Unlikely. But will he get over his perverse fetish? He sure hopes so.

MM! and BakaTest are two weird series with similar art, similar characters and same feelings. MM! is bit more mature, but they're both high school comedies / romances. losers are included. and one more word to describe: *facepalm*

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series are mainly comedies with a bit of romance thrown in. Each series also occurs in a highschool.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Probably the biggest similarity and biggest part of each series is the comedy with a touch of romance thrown in and they both deal in things of the preverted nature and use these things to fairly good success.  Either series is good to get more than enough laughs out of anyone watching it.

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

If you liked the different type of characters in one of the series you can probably appreciate what the other series did. They're all very unique. MM has a lot more mature jokes.

if you liked one, check out the other.

 

xxSilencexx xxSilencexx says...

Both are set in a school setting with really unique characters, at times the viewer may question why they're are watching them, but however these concerns are buried with absolutely epic episodes, both are really good... However MM! is a bit more mature...

ItsumoHitori ItsumoHitori says...

MM! and Baka to Test are two humour-based shows(with some romance included)that take place in interesting high schools and both include an extremely colourful cast of characters. If one of these shows had dying of laughter at points, make sure to check the other one out.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

If there is one thing these two have in common, it's that they both pack on the physical abuse on the main male protagonists. But played for laughs of course, which is what these two school-life anime are all about. Baka to Test is the more ridiculous of the two, but they're great if you're in the mood for some slapstick and hilarious dialogue.

My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

Good-looking Kanade Amakusa would prefer nothing more than to have a normal high school life. But due to his "Absolute Choice", a mental curse compelling him to decide between two outrageous options such as sniffing a smutty magazine on the ground versus eating it in public, everyone thinks he’s a total weirdo! One day, the boy chooses that a beautiful girl will fall from the sky, and much to his surprise, his choice becomes reality! Her name is Chocolat, and she’s come with a message: God will strike a deal with Kanade in the form of missions that might just cure his suffering. Sounds trouble-free enough compared to what he’s already gone through - except they’re on a whole other level of extreme craziness than the choices he already makes daily! Can Kanade successfully clear these outrageous challenges, or will he be forever rejected by his classmates and remain an outcast?!

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These are both fast paced comedies. The plots are very different. In Baka to Test the students fight to pass tests. In My Mental Choices one boy is forced to make multiple choice quizzes that appear in his mind that effect his reality.

However, these shows have the same style of humor with fast paced jokes. They both feature a male surrounded my cute females that get in on the jokes and have their own quirks. If you like faster paced comedies that often have a random element then you should try these shows.

trowa trowa says...

Both have common environments and the jokes have the same humor type, if you like one is almost sure that will like the other one.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

While Baka to Test is filled with morons and a moron notorious for being a moron (Akihisa), My Mental Choices Yadda Yadda is filled with oddball characters, nororious to get their own group of being crazy people, kinda like in Baka to Test. The crazies in both series get into some wacky situations with comedy at the wheel, and it works. From word-play to borderline absurd situations, slapstick and straight-faced comedy to situations that simply go completely against the main, it dishes some real nice comedy and has some variety while working in some running gags.

The fates aren't kind to the mains (Amakusa of Mental Choices and Akihisa of Baka to Test) and constantly make them the butt monkey but it also works in their favor of getting chicks to dig them, turning their lives into school life comedies that don't entirely focus on romance, despite it's lingering, hinted at presence. And Comedy > Romance by far. Both are pretty good comedies so if you like one, be sure to check out the other.

Etue Etue says...

A male lead in an unfortunate Position surrounded by quirky female potential love interests that leads to comedy. That is the simularity. 

valored valored says...

Same style of comedy, where the protagonist is trying to be serious but is unfortunately dragged into idiotic and hilarious circumstances beyond his control. However, while I did finish watching this one, it is not quite as funny as others like Baka Test, Zombie or D-Frag.

YuiYui YuiYui says...

Both of these are pretty random and the storyline in both is a bit wierd but oh well, in  the end they will both make you laugh one way or another. Both these are mainly based in a school with one quite extravagant main characters which added to the comedy. So both Baka to Test and My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With my School Romantic Comedy are both quite similar and I say if you liked one you should like the other.

kenikki kenikki says...

They are both comedies set in harem-ish settings while not actually pursuing the harem elements seriously.

The outrageous style in comedy with the over-the-top characters are very similiar in these two anime.

DeViouZ DeViouZ says...

Similar comedy style, both have mostly jokes around every corner but if you liked the one i'd also recommend the other for they both are really worth checking.

phoniefly phoniefly says...

Both have a bunch of girls in them and both make you laugh the whole way thru even though Is this a zombie? of the dead? has more action they are very similar

Very similar style of comedy, with characters who seemed to be unwillingly dragged into hilarious situations by their more idiotic friends and companions.

DevillAngel DevillAngel says...

Both anime have comedic school life that are about deal with the unequal treatment of students based on GPA. In both animes the classes are rejected by other classes and try to prove their worth by challenging higher classes. In Baka and Test the main focus is battling the other classes, while in Assassination Classroom the main focus is on assassinating their teacher.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

Both shows have the central theme of the underdog class in a school with implicit (and explicit) idiots being asked to perform enormous feats. Whereas in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu this means saving the world, in Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu it is more for personal betterment. 

Furthermore, while both shows have its main focus on comedy,the also contain some serious arcs (in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu more in the form of action and psychological, where in Baka to Test it is more drama and light romance)

Superstars111 Superstars111 says...

The main similarity between the two is the ranking system for the classrooms. Both shows revolve around the underdog class, and have a common theme of the misfits challenging the higher ranking classes to prove their worth.

SavannahPanda3 SavannahPanda3 says...

They're both in low level classes and both of them strive to reach a higher level in their education. There's also a bit of action in both animes especially when it comes to the test taking, though they're different enough to still seem interesting. 

Anqelz Anqelz says...

Both have the concept of if you fail or have bad grades, you get sent to the worst class possible. They both follow the adventures of the classmates. basically doing everyday life, with some spicy action and fighting.

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

Both anime are about lively school life. Although both mains are the last class in school, they still have a happy school life and a gang of friends who can do stupid thing together.

Baka to Test and Azumanga Daioh are two random comedies with a large main cast. Always having a few of the characters in the spotlight, they turn the most ordinary events into something hilarious. Note that Baka to Test is more perverted, where Azumanga is cuter, but if you loved one of these shows for how they delivered the comedy, make sure to check out the other!

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series are extremely random forms of comedy, often switching focus between any one of their large list of main characters. These series are both hilarious, so if you liked one you are sure to like the other.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

Comedy; either through visual or dialogue, is the strong point of these two. Both in a school setting and where the characters provide the laughs, they're both alike in how delightful and smile infecting they are. They're both mainly episodic, so a "plot" doesn't really interfere with the laughs too much.

tatinutas tatinutas says...

Azumanga Daoih and Baka to test to Shoukanjuu main characters are high school students. Both of them have their idiots and their genius. Both of them have their random comedy moments and a simple plot :)

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Random school-life animes with a pretty big main cast could easily describe both animes. Both Baka and Azumanga revolve around a particular group that have random and crazy adventures while trying their best to deal with school. There might be a plot, but its usually lost in all the randomness of these animes.

In Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Mitsudomoe, the humor of the surrounding environment is a crucial part of both series engaging the plot and the characters.

Mailtiger Mailtiger says...

While both 'baka to test to shoukanju' & 'mitsudomoe' have unique plot they share many comic releif moments... apart from many differences such as 'mitsudomoe' is more episodic, more perverted both have many things in common such as 'unique characterization', 'non-logic funny moments etc., both these shows features 'idiotic weirdos' running all over the series but thats what made them more liking.... if you like one don't forget to try the other.... you will surely like the both.... ^_^

Based on the first two episodes of No-Rin.

There are definitely some similarities in both anime. They seem to share the same kind of humor and they also share some common animation technics. It's no suprise both are from the same studio, Silver Link.

Madoka Madoka says...

These two series on the surface actually seem quite different, Baka to Test dealing with students (or idiots) rebelling against the schools ranking system to prove there is more to ones ability than grades and Nou-Rin focused more on a agricultural school and a idol joining their ranks. Though both series are a romantic comedy (on the side) the comedy shown to us is actually quite alike, also it became quickly apart after a short time they art style and even writing is similar. If you enjoyed one of these regardless if it's for the laugh or story im sure you should enjoy the other.

shanjo shanjo says...

Even after the first episode I felt the immiadiate similarities between the 2 shows. While the settings are slightly different, the humor, animation and general feel are almost alike

Almost exactly the same kind of style and humour between these two shows, the most distinctive difference is the setting in which each is based. I can fully recommending watching one if you enjoyed the other.

This one is really kind of a gut reccomendation, I don't know why, but to me these shows seem a lot alike and like they would appeal to the same audience. The only thing really similar between them is the random humor in a school setting and I guess that's what ties them together...and I guess the rivalry between two school groups, but that's pretty minimal.

Both of these appeal to the same demograph and both have a pretty similar cast. If you like one for it's comedic aspect then you will like the other. If you like one for it's story then this isn't even close but you should check it out anyway because they are definately worth the watch.
