Both have similar themes (bullying), and written by same author. They both also force you to think about things that might make you uncomfortable. 

They are also psychological and a bit disturbing, which this author is great at portraying.

They both are about protagonists dealing with bullying which has a dark plot but a happy ending. Life has a more complete story.

Jisatsu Circle and Vitamin are about a schoolgirl that gets hard-core bullied at school, and her emotional deterioration. Jisatsu Circle is darker/gorier.

In both of these mangas, the protagonists aren't exactly enjoying life (or more specifically, school). You get to see them struggle and pick themselves up and start to enjoy life. They both have strong, memorable endings.

Shiina is determined to find out...

It's around bullying all right! While Vitamin is around it, it's just one of the things Narutaru comes across. Still sitations around Shiina are quite similar to those of Sawako. That similar part is around dealing with bullying, and it's ultimate resolve... you might not like the results but I reccomend that you read it none the less...

Boys are either too intimidated to approach her or think she should reward their compliments with her attention. Then she catches the attention of the baddest boy in the school.

Mondai no Nai Watashi-tachi

Mondai no Nai Watashi-tachi

In this series, the main character becomes a target after she sticks up for another girl, but manages to turn it around and make the head 'mean girl' teased instead. Then she has to take on a teacher, who accuses her of shoplifting to cover up her own theft. Most of the victims crawl up into a ball, stop going to school, or just become loners but not in Mondai. It is the story of becoming friends and the different relationships between them.
