Similar type of useless main character who shines in the most useless of ways. Semi-harem type. But on top of everything they have the same kind of humor and ways of executing the humor. 
reportRecommended by yanmzry
They're both comedies that make fun of an overused topic (card battles and zombies). And they both have a male character that is used in a female role. 
reportRecommended by hav
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ... 
reportRecommended by Xenograft
Having a crazy school life? Well... it can't possibly be as crazy as the lives of any of the students in either one of these Anime. That's part of the charm of these anime. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Who would think that you could get a serious Anime from either story lines, but somehow the people who came up with the idea for both made it work. There is humor built into the story line too and it is very enjoyable despite the corniness. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Both are probably the most random anime I've ever seen. Great school slice of life comedy, though Baka to Test has some supernatural elements. 
reportRecommended by Samu-tan
Similar artistic style (cartoonish, textures, stylish effects, simple vectors, bright colors), similar comedy and both are about an average guy with a bunch of friends that have crazy antics with him at school or other various places. Both are harem-style and have lots of girls and fanservice. 
reportRecommended by mayukachan
The main setting for both Anime is a school. There are interactive avatars, more prevalent in one Anime then in the other. The main character is looked down upon in the real world because they happen to not have any ability that allows them to succeed in the real world, but once they get to the "game" they end up being important in some regard. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
The comedy between these two are amazingly similar. As soon as i started Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou i immiedeitly thought of Baka to Test.

If you like one be sure to check out the other. 
reportRecommended by otakuofdeath
These series have the same brand of humor behind them. If you like gay jokes, cheerful school settings, and light romance, both of these series fit the bill. They're both on Netflix too. 
reportRecommended by silasw
Both series revolve around a battle game that features chibi characters of the players. Random humour and similar character designs for the main characters. 
reportRecommended by lzumi-chan
I don't pride myself on making strange recommendations like this one but this time it's actually waranted:
-Both are about a game like system in a school were students fight (Baka and Test is an actual game though and Angel Beats! just has a video game feel).
-Some characters have the same feel and sometimes appearance.
-They deal with a bunch of morons (while more emphasized in Baka and Test, they do call themselves idiots in Angel Beats!)
Note: If you like the humor and characters then one should be a fit for the other but otherwise they're worlds appart.

Both protagonist have extremely annoying screechy voices when they overreact.
So if you like to torture yourself (Darn, you masochists..) Go check it out..

Battles between classes.
The best is Class S (Maji de) and Class A (Baka).
The worst class is Class F. 
reportRecommended by lzumi-chan
These anime are quite similar to each other, both being comedies following the class with the lowest grades in the school. In both anime students outside their class look down on them while the main characters do things others can't dream of. Both of them even have a token female looking male character. 
reportRecommended by shushushu
There both tremendously funny. Both have similar characteristics, such as: the protagonist is an idiot, girls tend to fall in love with these idiots, both have crude humor. 
reportRecommended by mytimewasted
Although the plot is different, the setting is same, i.e. school. The character designs are also somewhat similar. The biggest similarity is the comedy style; I got a Bakatest feeling from D-Frag. There are great characters, and plus, it's a fun series. If you watch one, high chances are that you will love the other.  
reportRecommended by TragicRomance
Well, gintama is random and parody on several animes and Baka test is random and a parody on several animes too and they are both funny, (in other ways though)! Gintama is sometimes a bit more serious than this one, but that's the only difference. I recommend both of them! 
reportRecommended by Ungirl
Main characters are very similar. They act weak and get pushed around by women that like them. There is also some cross dressing and random humor. 
reportRecommended by animejnkie
They have a similar brand of humor, and they both pull it off well. The characters are parodies of common character archetypes. 
reportRecommended by Caeca
They both involve a school system using a sort of summoned beast in combat. They both have several similarities in genre: action and romantic comedy. 
reportRecommended by Nanodesu
They are both drawn and animated the same way, giving both anime the same feel. I was instantly reminded of Baka to Test only 5 minutes into C3.  
reportRecommended by Raratah
Both shows have similar style of animation and character design (especially main girls characters are similar by appearance). Both of them can be considered like parody on school life with ecchi moments. They have similar kind of humor and in both is also cute male cross-dresser.  
reportRecommended by mcdvojka
Similar humor,both are random and funny :D, both have a touch of shonen ai between the main characters, similar art. 
reportRecommended by luiszsx
Crazy randomness, awesome battle scenes, romance (?), cute trap character, and more crazy randomness. 
reportRecommended by HyperBunnyofDOOM
Both focus mainly on being very funny (in which they both succeed) instead of having an outstanding amazing plot, but in both there still is a small plot. The jokes aren't especially similair (seitokai has a lot of sexual jokes but it isn't ecchi, nor incredibly immature and baka has all kind of jokes) but if you enjoy either you'll probably enjoy the other. 
reportRecommended by Dalphin
Both animes share the same humor.

Both are about school, a perverted main character with perverted friends.

Both includes nosebleeds.

Both have tsunderes who hits the MC/other males for the slightest thing (perverted stuffs mostly). 
reportRecommended by Kryki
School life, and love triangle. And I couldn't help but notice the similarities between characters: Mizuki relate to Mashiro in that they are both really talented. Minami relate to Nanami, they feel in love with the main guy. Akihisa relate to Sorata, they want to protect (take care) of the talented girl.
Shouko and Yuiji, childhood friend in love (Jin and Misaki in sakurasou)
The differ in the fact that baka to test is funnier 
reportRecommended by aleximn
both are romantic anime, although Baka and test is a lot more outrageous golden time is still hilarious.
both have a girl who is obsessed with a guy  
reportRecommended by megaan
Fast paced, sometimes random, comedies that have amazing art and enjoyable fanservice. 
reportRecommended by shigeru212
They very much remind me of each other, not because their humor is very similar but because they have the same way of spitting at klichés. They both deviate from what is "classic" anime comedy, and both does so brilliantly. 
reportRecommended by Volbla
It's similar in the sense of the character attitudes and mannerisms, even though the plot is completely different. 
reportRecommended by Procify
Both are hilarious school life animes with romantic comedy involved. Toradora is more serious during some critical situations, but is still light hearted most of the time. If you like comedy, don't miss out on either of these shows! 
reportRecommended by Dashiawia
Both anime are slapstick comedies with a touch of ecchi. To make it short, if you enjoyed light anime such as B Gata H Kei, you'll mostly probably like Bake to Test to Shoukanjuu as well, and vice versa.  
reportRecommended by Wilio
While KimiAru focuses on butlers and maids and BakaTest is a high school setting, I found both to have similar humor. If you found one funny, you're likely to enjoy the other. Both series have a similar length (~13 eps) with quickly developing paces. Both series also focus on social standing (the master-servant relationship in KimiAru and improving one's service skills, while the constant struggle of the idiots in Class F to be treated seriously by those in higher academic levels).

Sometimes, there are parodies (BakaTest has a very funny Evangelion episode, KimiAru pokes fun at Death Note), sometimes the humor is character  read more

Both have:

-Tsundere female lead (somewhat)
-Stupid/Pervert male lead
-Very fun to watch
-Lot of comedy

I recommend watching this very much if you liked Love Hina! 
reportRecommended by H4RP
They both are really funny anime to watch. There isn't a big story in it, so it's easy to follow; you could watch episodes randomly because there isn't really a line in it, but there is so much comedy in both!

If you like stupidity with splendid humor these two anime got some things in comon you will like! :)
I love how the jokes are being treated like serious behaviour.  
reportRecommended by Liquifizer
both of these show are extremely funny but in "Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi" there is more action and it also has a great story. 
reportRecommended by Scu8aStreet
Okay I just have to step in here to tell you that IF you are a big fan of the character Shirai Kuroko from Railgun like I am, then you MUST watch Baka to Test as there is an extremely similar character (Miharu Shimizu) that both have a yuri crush on a boyish flat-chested girl and call her "ONEE-SAMA!"

Onee-sama love forever! 
reportRecommended by Yandere-Addict
Both have a similar sense of humour, playing around with the most common Moe patterns all the while not taking themselves seriously. Both series are short, which gives them a more dynamic feel than other lenghier titles, but do not rush, since they have to give enough time for the jokes, obscure references and bizarre character choices to sink in. Overall, both are extremelly enjoyable series. 
reportRecommended by Paulokon
This is similar in a sense, but instead of using test scores to fight, you use money to fight. 
reportRecommended by x_Crayola
It's impossible to look at Baka and Test without thinking of To-Love-Ru. A bit of harem going on, and the girl the guy likes even looks like LaLa. 
reportRecommended by DavidStrife7
These two shows include their main male character possibly ending up with either of the two main female characters in a romantic relationship. 
reportRecommended by Partaker
the main characters are both clueless, about the girls that like them it's also a great laugh with similar problems.

-The main character who somewhat always gets teased by his friends
-School life-comedy anime
-A little romance
-Always put you in a good mood~

The male leads are both perverts, there's a love triangle, the art is similar and if you watch this you'd know what I mean Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko reminded me of baka and test instantly.

both have traps, and similar setting and comedy

Both deal with alot of comedy

Both have game battles dealing with mini chibi character versions of themselves

Main characters are Male with unique personalities

In general if you like Baka Test you can probably feel the resemblance in Etotama

Baka to Test is about summoning beings and Cardcaptor Sakura is about summoning cards and controlling what their master wishes

Both are extremely over the top, they're both my favourite comedy anime of all time, neither are very serious, both parody other anime, both have strange but likeable art styles, in both series the main characters are idiots.

The main conflict are the main similarity. Both the main characters have a conflict on romantic conflict. Also they are both really good school-life anime. 
reportRecommended by ZachAttack597
These are both nonsensical comedies with magic elements in them. Although plot and characters are widely different, they are both genuinely funny at times and are sure to turn that frown upside down from episode to episode it will have you rolling. 
reportRecommended by TheZarrox
Both shows take place in.high school with a colorful cast and strange yet scary teachers . But there also really different like Baka and Test takes place in a modern school with a advance school system with Azumanga's is traditional. Also have highly catchy theme songs. 
reportRecommended by heartofsouls11
When I first heard about Inou Battle, I was told it was like another anime. But watching the characters reminded me more of Baka and Test. Both shows feature a love triangle in which a flat chested, tsundere girl and an air-headed girl with a decent-sized (Inou Battle) or massive (Baka and Test) chest pine over the main character, who acts like an idiot in one and is an idiot in the other. Both shows also feature some form of supernatural combat.

These are the same kind of slap-stick comedy series where in the end, there is a really good story.

They both involve a school separating students into rankings of sorts, and they both include action scenes and romance undertones.

Students are battling each other with their mascots to get to a higher rank. In Baka To Test it is to get a better classroom, in Selecter Infected it is to makes their wish come true.

Baka to Test and no game no life both have the same kind of animation, and both have something to do with strategy to become the best while being the ones at the bottom in baka to test its class F and no game no life its the humans, they both have players who fight their way to the top with games and both are really funny comedies that also have a little of perverted stuff.

Seemingly normal schools but with a supernatural/abnormal twists.Baka to test is more of a comedy while Hidan no Aria is more of a Action.

Ookami and BakaTest have the same brand of funny, character-driven humor and romance as well as a large cast of characters that fit the general anime stereotypes. Each series has it's own tsundere, loli, bishounen, ect.  
reportRecommended by kcam44
Even though this animes have nothing a like it just that some characters are similar like
Himeji/ Kotonoha= both are super cute, shy big chested girls with a horrible cooking
Minami/ Sekai= both are tomboyish, flat chested girls (who complains about it) but are good at cookings.
Himeji and Minami/ Sekai and Kotonoha= are really good friends but they are both in love with the same guy.

On both animes there is a pool episode. Both have ecchi. Although baka to test is more comedy and school days is more drama.

Some of the humor is similar. Both short and funny comedies who don't fall into heavy fanservice, though Magikano is more suggestive than Baka to Test.

Both TV series have basically the same idea - a group of outcasts (in BakaTest it is Class F, while in KoiChoko it is a "useless" club) trying to fight for their rights and make the situation better.

Different content, similar presentation with all these weird angles and random chibis ....

reportRecommended by Nikkikomori
Both shows are high school comedies where quality of school life is determined through battles. In Baka and Test, the battles are between avatars whose power level depends on how well students do on tests while in Mikagura, the battles are between club representatives.

While Clannad is considered extremely emotional by many people, I find first season to be quite hilarious. The really sad/emotional scenes are in After Story. Clannad, like Baka to test, is about school life with comedy involved. If you like comedy with a little more drama involved be sure to check out Clannad 
reportRecommended by Dashiawia
Similar style. Both deal with a school and romance story with some sci-fi dosis althought In Date a Live the main character have to go out on a date with the girls while in Baka To test he has to defend "class honor"

It's a rather fun show about a idiot and his friends having a strange life. The only difference, its in a school that worries more about grades then people sometimes.

Both are based around school and share a main character who is dense toward others' feelings. The comedy in the two is also similar. 
reportRecommended by Agent_Chimp
The art and character designs in both shows are gorgeous. Perhaps this is no coincidence because the animation studio Silver Link is credited for both shows.

Also each Anime has a sister with a major brother complex and their over-the-top behavior produces hilarious results.

Both shows deal with underdog teams competing against prestigious factions in various games to regain power, and also has a similar comedic atmosphere.

Both titles become random comedy for the middle portion of the series, while having generally uninteresting "story" portions at the beginning and end. The random comedy is what makes both shows worth watching.

Both series has a lot of comedy in them, both has a "baka" character in them, one of the main characters has someone liking him and he/she doesn't realize it(kana&fujioka, akhisa&himeji), both has school in them, and main characters in both are living withought their parents.
