Both shows are about a wacky group of kids who want to help anyone that needs it in their schools. Lots of comedy is to be had in both as these kids will do anything possible to get the job done! Check em out.

Both shows are comedies in a high school setting, that revolve around the main characters solving the various problems plaguing the student body. Episodic, comedic, and modern these shows have a lot in common. I'd recommend them either way, if you liked one try the other.

Both are comedy animes set in high school.

Both of them starts with two characters (girl and boy) who helps others. The female protagonists is also very popular among the students.

In Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. like in Medaka Box, the original premise is some high school students helping their peers with various problems, but unlike Medaka Box, which strays into world of fighting shounen), Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. sticks to it. So if you liked the beginning of Medaka Box, but disliked what it later turned into, do yourself a favor and go watch Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru.

While the genre and humour are different, both series have that high school comedy element to them, that and a male protagonist who is close to people immensely skilled and talented. If you enjoyed the comedy skits in Medaka box then you’ll probably enjoy the comedy skits in SNAFU (just be aware that SNAFU is not a pure comedy and has its serious moments. If your looking for a pure high school comedy, then probably go watch Baka and Test or Seitokai No Ichizonn instead (tho both are a bit ecchi so if you’re against that they aren’t for you either).

Both of these anime follow the antics of a student council and their friends with quite colorful personalities. They both have the same over-arching theme, similar humor and highly likable characters in each. They also both have their serious moments of sincerity and real life lessons.

Strange school for special students? Check! Out of control super-powers? Check! A beautiful school idol with no regard for the rules? Double-check. While it lacks the shaper wit and references that Medaka Box packs in spades, Mamoru-kun's insane action and way-over-powered leading lady put the series in a similar, if more simplistic category.

Demon King Daimao

For the randonmess of the episode and due to the fanservice which is in this anime, as well as some of the characters having what seems to be powers in Medaka box. Medaka is a Mary sue like most female protaginasts are these days. However in DKD the male progtagisnt has a he female harem and there is fanservice in this also at times it seems random. Both animes are funny and have a scence of humor they make you laugh and feel relaxed compared to all the dark animes which are out there these days.

The female leads in both shows, Medaka and Haruhi, are both take-charge type girls leading their own small group.

Both of these animes start out with two people going and doing requests for people and slowly their group starts to grow. After the first group of episodes, though, they errupt into full out shounen battle manga (You get this more if you also watch Medaka Box Abnormal). They both retain there comical aspect through out.

Same author - NisioIsin, different studios.

Pseudonormal main hero, gorgeous girls, absurd dialogues. Crazy and funny as hell. (Abnormal is even better)

Both anime feature a lot of visually pleasing fighting and other antics in a high school setting, involving students with ridiculous powers and larger-than-life personas. Kill la Kill is more straightforward (and more enjoyable), while Medaka Box seems to be a jab directed towards contemporary shounen. Still, the concept in both are very much the same, so I think it is a viable recommendation.
