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.
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...
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.

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.
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.
If you're looking for laughs, look no further.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Really similar to each other, mainly by style of drawing.
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.
Slapstick school comedies with lots of ironic humor.
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 series revolve around a battle game that features chibi characters of the players. Random humour and similar character designs for the main characters.
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.
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!
Similar humor,both are random and funny :D, both have a touch of shonen ai between the main characters, similar art.
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.
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.
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.
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.
They have a similar brand of humor, and they both pull it off well. The characters are parodies of common character archetypes.

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
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
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!
Fast paced, sometimes random, comedies that have amazing art and enjoyable fanservice.
Crazy randomness, awesome battle scenes, romance (?), cute trap character, and more crazy randomness.
It's similar in the sense of the character attitudes and mannerisms, even though the plot is completely different.
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.
Main male character gets beat up a lot
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.
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 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.

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).

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.
If you like comedy, and like one of the series, you should enjoy the other one.

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.
This is similar in a sense, but instead of using test scores to fight, you use money to fight.
Baka to Test is about summoning beings and Cardcaptor Sakura is about summoning cards and controlling what their master wishes
These two shows include their main male character possibly ending up with either of the two main female characters in a romantic relationship.
The comedy is voluminous and robust. Both shows are the epitome of laugh out loud humor.
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.
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
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 characters are both clueless, about the girls that like them it's also a great laugh with similar problems.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
The school life and competition among student from different levels. The romantic comedy life xP
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.

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

-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~
Two girs one with big boobs and another with nothing. the only difference is that the main one on goshuushou-sama is stronger while the other is a idiot
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.
school battle, sports battle, friendly battle, comedy and enjoyable, if you like all of that, maybe you can enjoy these both anime.
it also somewhat random and has a love story but this show has some ecchi parts but it is very funny.
it is also about school life but there turnover is the male is much more better than female i am not yet done finishing baka to test to shoukanjuu but their similar and also it has sam genes
Actually its for all the "Baka to Test" series but just for: Episode 2 and Episode 3

Because these two episodes include:
Comedy (sort of)
For one reason, both have the most popular traps in anime!

chibi characters and both is cute romance
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 trait-based... But both are enjoyable comedies.
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.
Both shows deal with underdog teams competing against prestigious factions in various games to regain power, and also has a similar comedic atmosphere.
They both involve a school separating students into rankings of sorts, and they both include action scenes and romance undertones.
In both serials there are lots of satire on the other anime (on NGE for exaple)
I laughed for a long time, honestly :)
both have traps, and similar setting and comedy
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.
Both animes have superpower
There is ecchi, harem in both
both their schools are weird

The male character is dumb who is not aware of girls feelings for him
Both animes girl like male lead one girl being his childhood friend and the other girl is strongest in school
MC goes to magic academy. Both are tested and divided into a group/class. All the girls fall in love with MC because of his unique powers.
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
- Same Animation Production.
- Both series are School and Comedy Themed.
- Both series have an Uncommon specific topic, in Baka is summon test game, in Kokoro is body switching.
The pictures is kinda similar to mitsudomoe. It`s about school life and they behave a little similar to the kids in mitsudomoe.
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 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.
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.
Different content, similar presentation with all these weird angles and random chibis ....
(Uhm, Pani Poni Dash had content ?)
The protagonists for both show look kinda similar, both pretty perverted, have two girls that like them (but oblivious to that fact), and special in a way.
School life comedy;
two pretty girls are in love with protagonist;
boy who loves cross-dressing xD
Both include the totally knows nothing about love guy. Both in a F.M.F love triangle, except told by a different gender protangist. But other parts are really different...
Both pretty eechi.
Hilarious and just at a point drama comes in.
Who likes who...0_o
Pretty girls perverted guy.
I bet if you like baka to test to shoukanjuu you will love this anime.
Both are based around school and share a main character who is dense toward others' feelings. The comedy in the two is also similar.
