Both of these come from the same studio, so they have a lot in common... most noticeably the weird frog and the quirky sense of humor. It borders on being ridiculous, so I don't suppose it's for everybody, but if this sort of humor suits you then you're in for a treat.

Both shows are from the same studio, SHAFT, so they share quite a bit in terms of humour and style. Zetsubou Sensei has much more dark humor though, and a more distinct artistic style (in some ways similar to xxxHOLIC). Negima is a bit more random, and focuses a little more on magic and jumbled relationships and such.

Both have stories about a boy getting surrounded by girls. The girls in Tenshi no Shippo may be animals but they always show up as young girls. In both, the girls fight over the attention of the main character.

Both revolve around young children who are put into positions that are normally for people older then themselves. One is a 10 year old in high school, and the other is a child teacher.

Both have magic, male main characters that have a lot of women that fall in love with them, a good bit of comedy mixed in, and make you feel a bit ease while watching it. Neither take them selves to seriously and are just fun to watch. Both have action, comedy, and romance.

Both are about a guy that has a harem of girls trying to fight for his affection. They all have different characteristics and are pretty much stereotypes of girls we would normally see in shows like this but not all of them are romantic. In fact, both have girls that just want the main character to be like a sibling to them.

An adorable kid with strong powers turns up and ends up helping/having to give his new friends/students powers. Both have action and comedy and center around some sort of magic. The main character loves his friends/students, is very selfless, and likes to smile.

If you saw bakemonogatari you will realize that there are very similar scenes, they share some themes (Magic, vampires, etc.) are not the same type of series, but the dynamics of the narration and some scenes are very similar

It has a lot of similar romantic comedy elements. They also both have some sort of magic. The fan service is something also they share.

Both animes center around harem and romance with the similar aspects of negima being magic and seirei being a mixture of demons with magic but personally i don't think the magic aspect is the same as negima both animes include kissing being how you make a contract and a similar dilema being they have to get stronger and both in the same environment being a school differances in negima he is a teacher and seirei he is a student you will love negima if u liked the harem situation but if you liked the magical aspect of the girls becoming like magical girls then i  read more

They're both funny, and are about the problems you have to put up with in an all-girls high school! Also, Freddy Crab likes how both animes have short-skirted girls in them ( He sighs happily)

Same idea, 1 guy, multiple girls that fall in love with him, although instead of an all girl's school, it's on an all girl's island.

They're both Shoujo and Shoujo Ai, which makes them both unique. Also, both have pretty much the same quality in animation and storyline which is why I recommend it.

The way ef, presents it's animations is very similar to that of Negima. The difference is their storylines. Compared to Negima!?, which uses the animation for more of a magic/adventure (Harry Potter-like) anime, ef uses these animations for more of a cross between romance and drama (similar to that of Kare Kano.)

Both of these animes offer the random comedy that SHAFT is well known for. 
report Recommended by Sam
Because they are both directed by Akiyuki Shinbo and produced by studio SHAFT, they are very similar in style. -MOON PHASE- has a young girl who makes a pact with an older guy and the story focuses on vampires. In Negima!?, it's a young male who makes pacts with his older female students, there’s only one vampire, and emphasis is put most on the magical incantations. However, each series shares similar elements and has a serious gothic tone; yet at times they can be very cute and even slightly romantic. Not to mention both are VERY funny! In fact, the running gag with the falling  read more

Both have romance and magic abilities

Both are fanservice-less adaptations of Ken Akamatsu manga.

Both have comedy, romance, and magic they really look similar so I recommend for it!!

They are both by Shaft so have similar styled animation and visual settings. The format is also similar where the protagonists go into dark voids and fights off some sort of evil being in the void and restores the area. One of the only significant differences is that Negima!? has a lot of comically moments as Madoka Magica remains serious all the time.

They both are harem/ magical anime, for one. Also, they both are just brilliant shows. Sure, Negima may center around a magical classroom, but Shuffle expands from the classroom into showing how this magical girls interact with the world. Negima had robots, ninjas, vampires, wizards, ghosts, etc. Shuffle has angels and demons, a kind of step up. So i definately reccomend Shuffle for Negima lovers.

Slayers is an older title, but combines both magic and adventure with comedy. 
report Recommended by RedMageSohma
Both take place in an alternate world where magic exists. The male lead and the heroines has special powers, that over time get stronger. Also sacrifice is a strong theme too.
