Gakuen Alice...how I put off this anime for awhile, because it seemed so childish. Oh, how wrong I was. A lot of people recommend GA if you liked Kamichama Karin [which is absolutely fantastic] but I was very skeptical about GA. So here it goes:
AMAZING. This anime is fantastic. The only anime that has ever made me really laugh is Ouran High School Host Club, but Gakuen Alice is so clever that it definitely comes in second. Mikan is your typical happy-go-lucky over excited school girl, kind of like Usagi from Sailor Moon, except Mikan never complains and tries her hardest at everything. What's amazing read more

I Laughed, Cried, Wanted something (or someone) to Hug, And episode after episode, i could not wait until i saw the next.
Gakuen Alice is true-ly a masterpiece.
Some people drop the anime because of it's childish element. But let me say this once, IT. IS. NOT. CHILDISH. There are so many dark moments in this anime, that will honestly tear you to pieces and make you cry. If you have a heart that is, and I am pretty strong when it comes to that stuff, but this anime broke that barrier. On-wards to the Review!

Gakuen Alice has an interesting premise and a charming first episode which lulls you into the belief that you are in for a special treat. Cute characters, slapstick comedy, magic, and elementary kids give you a distinct Harry Potterish feel. However in the end though that special treat ends up tasting like it was dropped in the mud.

As I mentioned the premise is interesting though quite farfetched. There are plenty of familiar themes and if you have watched school comedies (really who hasn’t practically all of them take place in school) there won’t be anything all that groundbreaking. The story overall read more

This anime was recommended to me a while back but I didn't get the chance to watch it until now, and I'm sure glad I remembered to! Before watching it, I thought it would just be a normal school anime, the last thing I was expecting was the twist added by the characters' "Alices", which are like superpowers.

I didn't have trouble enjoying this anime; it's fun and entertaining right off the bat. I was especially charmed by Natsume's character, but was a little disappointed that more wasn't explained about his background and current "situation". I'm sure the manga does a better job, so there's read more

Anime: Kodomo no Omocha
Both are about kids in elementary. The energy in both series is fast paced and exaggerated, and feature cool male leads. Very cute, and very similar. Even the main characters in both look alike.  
reportRecommended by June
Anime: Kamichama Karin
Kamichama Karin features kids with the power of gods, Gakuen Alice features kids with special magic powers. Lots of things happen while they are at school. And well, Karin and Mikan (main protagonists respectivly^^) look alike and their characters are quite similar too. Same goes for other characters! Humor is quite alike, and of course the kawaii-ness factor is very, very high in both shows....means frequently appearing animals and various frilly costumes for the girls, cute/cool outfits for the boys.

ichigo is like mikan she is clumsy, funny and cute. the story has a taste of MAGIC 
reportRecommended by amukid08
Anime: Fruits Basket
Both their stories are driven by their own unique concept of magic. 
reportRecommended by maoyasama
Anime: Shugo Chara!
Both series revolve around elementary school students with special abilities! Lots of character development and the themes of friendship and believing in yourself. 
reportRecommended by Susan
Anime: Quiz Magic Academy: The Original Animation
Both involve an academy where magic is the main subject.
The protagonists of Quiz are older than the ones in Gakuen Alice, anyway both are funny, light-hearted anime with a cast of amusing, unusual teachers and with a main girl who constantly gets bad votes.
