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.
Both are light, random and very funny rom-com. While Seto is way more extreme in term of comedy, Baka to Test is light full.
Both animes have similar "stupid and random" humor; a love triangle between the comedic male protagonist, a tsundere, and the cutesy nice girl; a little fantasy (Baka Test has summoned beings while SetoHana has mermaids); and even homo-erotic jokes thrown in to make you laugh, feel awkward, and/or fangirl.
If you were entertained while watching Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, you'll definitely find Seto no Hanayome just as enjoyable and vice versa.
Lots of comedy, each character is unique and main char usually finds himself in "life threatning" situations
Both are really random and posses an extreme level of comedy
Seto much funnier but baka more "gentle"
Great slapstick comedy and use of exaggeration
Same kind of romance-comedy, slapstick jokes and random storyline.
basically very similar characters very similar kind of comedy. both are just as funny (voice actors atleast for english are same)
Exactly the same kind of humor, highly recommended!
Both are Comic animes but have romance as well.
Both will make you laugh a lot in some cases.
Same Slapstick random yet very funny animation style, both a fair amount of action. But if you just want a show you can enjoy you cant go wrong with this.
Both anime are very fast paced and FREAKING HILARIOUS! They never get boring.
Both are super funny animes within a school setting and over the top comedy.
If you enjoyed either you and are looking for a good laugh then you are bound to love the other :)
If you like Baka to Test, I'm sure you are going to like this one too, as both are comedy/romance at school.
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.
Filled to the brim with stupidity, over the top antics and plenty of randomness; School Rumble and Baka to Test has much to offer, especially in the comedy department.
Baka to Test is for those who like parodies, and the clichés of anime all thrown into one bag and mocked out of.
School Rumble consists of many "short episodes" of gags, as to not bore the viewer whereas Baka to Test has a certain theme or direction of an episode e.g. the classic "Pool Day"
Either way, if you like brainless laughs and just want something over-the-top and insane to watch then try Baka to Test or School Rumble.
Comedy where didiots are involved..actually school rumble has proper idiots and its as funs as baka to test
They both are school comedy type despite not really similar to School Rumble, and School Rumble is way funnier than Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu (in my opinion) they both share the same genre
The main characters are dumb and they are both in school. Good Laughs.
similar humor and both my favorite
Idiots, misunderstandings, school based wackiness, and a little interclass warfare too because hell why not.
Both romance/comedy which revolve around a group of students, their far outlives and love dense main characters. Baka is more over the top in its antics and randomness but School Rumble isn't that far off.
It's safe to say both will provide plenty of laughs and enjoyment!! :)
They're quite have the similar storyline and both comedy, both an awesome anime, and both worth watching.
The humor, characters, setting, and plot are practically shared between the two shows. Both are set in high school, feature a romantically clueless MC, make use of classic anime character tropes, and showcase characters the are practically copies of each other. These two shows go hand in hand as two of the funniest high school romantic comedies ever made and their similarity make them perfect for someone who has finished one series and is itching for more of the same humor/characters.
The shows are similar enough that if you enjoyed one, you'll definitely enjoy the other, but different enough so that it doesn't feel repetitive or boring.
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.
Energetic comedy series that derive some of their humour from parodying other anime. Both have perverted male characters and generous amounts of fanservice. There are plenty of fight scenes in both.
Similar humor, supernatural battles.
The most random things happen and then things just make less and less sense...
Expressive, humorous and interesting, both are things that suck you in using crazy randomness and anything it can throw at you.
Neither of these shows take themselves seriously, They just take a concept and make fun of it in the most hilarious ways they can. along with very entertaining and unique fighting scenes, Both shows do a great job of parodying their genres, With just senseless and random comedy each show throws at you, they are also able to give you a decent narrative when they get serious, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu seems to do more fleshing out of the characters the Kore wa Zombie desu ka but each have a fun story line with many likeable characters.
-Both are comedies
-Both take place in high school
-Both have battle scenes
-Both have ecchi scenes
-Both have chibi scnes
-Both have a lot of character development
Both shows have similar perverted humor, violence related to Tsunderes, and are great mindless fun. Character designs and the English dubs are also top notch. I highly recommend both.
Both are hilarious comedies with an over the top style and wacky situations.
Very similar feel and humour. Aki from BakaTest and Kousaku from Nourin are spitting images of each other in personality! Nourin is smuttier though ...
The school where our main characters study are slightly different than your regular ones, one is about agriculture while other is more related to super-powers. Nonetheless, the comedy style is very similar and so is the art. You will surely enjoy Nourin if you liked Baka Test even if the overall premise is different ;)
+ Same random humor
+ Main characters are very similar and both shows have a love triangle
+ School setting where different groups in the school compete against each other (BtT has classes and grades and Nourin has different agricultural sections)
From the studio that brought you the action series "Strike the Blood" comes a romantic comedy in a school environmental place. The story features a main male character who are caught up in a situation revolving girls around his space. It can be either love, jealous, hate, or emotions depending their mood of their actions. Expect some slapstick, and funny moments in here as the show goes on.
Baka and Test is a fantasy show where characters uses avatar through a battle competition. No-rin is a normal show that features an Idol who takes a "break" from entertainment and attends a school.
Both of the anime are made by the same director and it really show in the art style. Both of the show also use a multitude of cliche in an extreme way. They both have a really stupid and perverted MC, the childhood friend who is secretly in love with the MC, the shy popular girl the MC is in love with. Nourin is pretty much a Baka Test agricultural version.
- The Comedy parts of these two are almost the same but Baka to Test is much more funnier than Nourin
- The Teachers in these anime are weird
- Main Female Characters likes the Main Male Character
- Both anime do weird missions or tasks ( weird & funny )
- Both Comedy, School and Romance genre'd anime
- Makes you want to watch more
Both are hilarious animes that will make you die from laughter.
well, this is my first recommendation
when i first watching this anime, i had a feeling like the anime i have watched before. that anime was baka to test to shoukanjuu. the similarities are :
1. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical hairstyle, but different colour.
2. both akihisa and kousaku have an identical "idiot" personality.
3. both the graphics of nourin and baka to test have the same style
4. both nourin and baka to test have many of pervert characters
sorry for my bad english
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.
They are similar in the fact of having a cute shy main character who ends up in the center of a big competition.
The comedy is fairly similar.
The "weak" protagonist (really, it's just that everyone else is too strong) is often subjected to physical punishment. In Baka Test it's getting his butt handed to him in summoning fights and by tsunderes, while in Ben-To he gets his ass kicked plain and simple... over food. (Don't worry though, they both overcome their underdog status in their own way)
They also both have a sort-of stalker who's weak to romace cliches. A male in BakaTest, a female in Ben-To. Also, they're also both poor, starving students.
The difference is the protagonist of Ben-To isn't "the dumbest idiot around".
Yoshii Akihisa (Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu) and You Satou (Ben-to) Have the same Voice Actors (Hiro Shimono)
Both shows fight for one thing that isn't normally fought about (Grades and Half-priced food)
Both have the same Ecchi-like comedy style
The randomness, the action and the comedy go hand in hand with these two shows.
If you like one of them you'll probably like the other
The basic concept around these two shows are competition, where students mostly fight to meet their expectations. The main characters in here participates these events either by team or a free-for-all battle in a surreal battle sequence. The fighting can be absurd, but it was entertaining and satisfying, so expect some action, teamwork, and romance in here.
Baka and Test, tells a boy who helps his friends trying to reach up the higher class by competing a unique RPG battle system. Ben-to follows a boy who is caught up in all out brawl between customers competing for half-price ben-to.
Baka's an over-the-top school scenario with lots of randomness mixed in with the fighting. Baka's humor and action carries it through and makes it enjoyable. you'll find many similarities, from humor style to voice actors, but baka definitely proves itself worthy in its own right.
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.
Both are really random and are both parodies. They also both have traps.
In both shows there are very interesting characters, crossdressing, comedy and a bit of romance
Both are ridiculous, over-the-top action packed school-life romantic comedies with a lot of charm and great characters. Baka and Test, at least the anime, is also MUCH more female friendly than most school-life romantic comedies (save for series that are actually tagged as shoujo) as it has a lot of allusions to shoujo manga and anime (CLAMP references, yaoi implications, etc). They both take place at fancy academies and have an air of lavishness about them, although you don't get to see the lavish side nearly as much in Baka and Test because we follow Class F.
great animes , lots of fun watching them , never lost interest . funny moments everywhere
3 words. OVER EXAGGERATED COMEDY! This is my favourite type of comedy and I love how the characters in both animes make the simplest issue that usually won't effect your daily life into something over exaggerated and turn it into a very funny scene. If you like gay jokes ,stupid jokes , baka characters then those are definetly here. There hasn't been a dull moment in these series and they easily fit in my Top 5 Comedy animes of all time. So if you like Ouran definetly check Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu! Same goes the other way around.
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.
A virtual world connected to the real world where they fight each other. School is involved with both of them.
In a nutshell, both Baka to Test and Accel World shares a few similarities:
In both series, there is the theme of fantasy action that involves action in another setting/world. While AW takes on a more serious approach, both series presents fantastical action.
Both series main male protagonist are young boys who has a female protagonist interested in them. And of course, he has friends that supports and help him in various circumstances.
Both series has a lot of comedy, gags, and fan-service in the form of beach episodes, dates, etc.
-half-surreal art style
-funny little twists within a battle
-weaker wins against stronger with intelligence
great animes , lots of fun watching them , never lost interest
Sometimes we got to battle it out in order to meet our expectations. The main characters in the series, used some fantasy technology, where they used this to meet their goals. They battle it out, and mostly reach at the top as their motives for completion. Competition is the central plot throughout the whole series and somewhat romance in here.
Baka and test is mostly a school comedy, where they summon real life chibi avatars to fight off opponents. Accel World features a heavy sci-fi computer interface, where they used a Virtual Reality Multiplayer Game, to fight off opponents.
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.
They both have a group of kids in an exaggerated school setting (one school in the afterlife and one school that has students battle). They're both comedies and both have some romance in them as well. Angel Beats is a little softer on the romance and comedy, and more emotional and deep as well. It really pulls you into the story. Baka to Test on the other-hand is a slapstick comedy that will have you laughing to yourself twenty minutes after you've finished watching an episode. The romance is balanced in well so that you end up loving many of the characters to boot.
they are both entertaining and funny.
great animes , lots of fun watching them , never lost interest
Both have similar elements of humor as well as a focus on high school life. Both anime, while not being exactly the same, have similar characters designs as well (Baka to Test's designs are a little more chibi-ish). In edition, there is a great emphasis in both anime on the idiocy of the characters (though it's brought up much more in Baka to Test).
Both series provides great laughs for comedy lovers
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.
The same type of humour that leaves you with your mouth wide open in awe at how amazingly stupid yet good what you're watching is!
Both these anime have extremely perverted characters, love triangles/squares/pentagons and calm yet playfully sinister characters!
In Baka to Test all the characters run around in a chibi form when the fight and in Sora no Otoshimono so does the main character. Both of the shows are funny and pertain to school life.
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.
If you liked the first series of Hayate no Gotoku but didn't like the second, you will almost certainly love Baka to Test. The same frantic energy and well-timed parody of other anime shine in both series.
Fun and humorous. Great comedies with romance elements.
If you like a good comedy and don't mind if some of it being a bit mindless and doesn't make sense all the time check these out.
Baka to Test - Revolves around a main character who's always getting tricked by his friend's into doing stupid things and getting laughed at.
Hayate no Gotoku! - Revolves around a main character with the worst luck always getting into situations which usually end up in hilarious outcomes.
-Both "Hayate no Gotoku" & "Baka to Test" involve a main character who is unfortunate in a way that makes you laugh each time it happens.
-They each have a slight touch on romance but both are more focused on the comedy.
-Each of the main characters is loyal to another character and is willing to do almost anything for them with the right persuasion.
Similar humor,both are random and funny :D, both have a touch of shonen ai between the main characters, similar art.
Both are comedies set in a school scenario. R-15 is more ecchi kind of funny while Baka and Test is more the stupid kind of funny. Both are great, and you should like both of them if you liked one of them.
R-15, a guy with an unusual talent trying to survive this genius academy he goes too with his friends.
Baka to Test a guy being put inside the F class, and is seen as stupid and is trying to prove to the school that tests aren't everything.
They both involve school. One is funny because of "baka", the other one is funny because of "ego"
these animes both have really great personalities for all characters except for the fact that I hat short haired guys in baka to test to be loved by a beautiful long black haired girl but overall these two anime are really good especially if you want to have a laugh and at the same time have school life and romance added on to that
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.
Just another school time with idiotic people who does idiotic activities, they both have similar jokes to make you laugh hard enough.
Well, both are higschool animes, and have almost the same comedy.
In both animes, the main character is an "baka" (idiot/stupid), and has other friends with different personalities.
In my opinion, they are the best animes that I watched, but both need more episodes =(
IF YOU LIKE THIS SCHOOL IN A HAREM COMEDY, THIS ANIME IS FOR IDENTICAL. It is GREAT COMEDY WITH A MAIN CHARACTER TO REPENT OF YOUR LUCK, WHILE OTHERS WOULD LIKE.
Both protagonist have extremely annoying screechy voices when they overreact.
So if you like to torture yourself (Darn, you masochists..) Go check it out..
The protagonists are both unique in their own way and their persistence plays a great role when they must overcome tough obstacles (and they're both voiced by the same seiyuu for those that care).
Both anime's are more comedy driven, not really putting a lot of focus on a main story line but they still do have a general plot or objective to follow. In Baka's case it would be Class F trying to become the best in the school and in KamiNomi they are tracking down and capturing all the loose souls.
Similar violent humor. Same bow. Same dealing with everyday life issues in fantastic way.
both anime comprises of the genres-romance and comedy. Both anime are definitely one that you should watch if you want to get a dose of laughter. Also the voice actor for the male protagonist in both series is the same
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.
Both are comedies (but Baka to Test is a bit insane in a sense when it comes to it's style of comedy), and both have kids that go to an academy where they practice sort of similiar fighting powers. Both have the same love triangle, with a violent tsundere and a super sweet girl going for the same clumsy lead male!
Overall, Baka to Test focuses a bit more on comedy and it doesn't take it's plot too seriously, while Zero no Tsukaima on the other hand does have a comedy aspect, but it also has some very serious and dramatic elements to it. But regardless, they are very similiar in many ways!
Both of these amines have female characters with pink hair. And both find trouble expressing their love for the male protagonist.
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.
Both take place in the school, the drawing style of the backgrounds is quite similar, though the humour is different.
I'm not sure if you enjoyed Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu then you will enjoy SZS and vice versa, but if you like school and comedy, i'm pretty sure you'll like them both.
Although th comedy is very different the way that most that characters are based of stereotypes makes these both a good anime to watch for a laugh.
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.
Both are ridiculously hilarious.
Both are insanely funny. For Seitokai, you need to have some general knowledge to understand their jokes though.
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.
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 of them have a love triangle situation, but when it comes to love, Akihisa from baka to test to shoukanjuu is a lot more stupid than Sorata of Sakurasou no pet na kanojo. And better be prepared of what will happen every episode, it made me excited that I watched it for a whole day. :D
They have a similar brand of humor, and they both pull it off well. The characters are parodies of common character archetypes.
thyeyre both extremly funny,one deals with not so smart highschoolers to a demon king who works at mcdonalds. they both hve fighting and most of all insane laughter.(dont watch to much in one day you might gain contagous laughter)its hard notb to laugh at verything and everyone
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.
Awesome! Both onime could be called "The new word in onime production". Why? 1. Comedy 3. School. 4. strange, but interesting theme 5. modern 6. original 7. perfect characters 8. romantic ... Where is "2" ? I don't know! it's unknown element, very secret and very amazing %)
- 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.
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"
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.
-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~
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!
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.
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
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.
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
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
