Okay, too many similarities. Both are school-life-centered comedies with a plot involving a laid-back club and it's awesome members. I absolutely love both. Watch one, be ready to love the other ;)

Both are school-comedies where the main male character is dragged into a not-so-ordinary club. Also, I find Chitose sorta like Yozora with her slightly violent personality, Kenji a bit like Kodaka and Takao to be like Sena (she is wayyy better than her though) Also Kenji acts like a delinquent, same as Kodaka. Both are funny and lovable.

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.

In both of these awesome anime, the whole point is to have a good time. If you love laughing, you will love both of these. There are tons of jokes, and every episode of both anime made me laugh so many times. If you liked one, you will definitely like the other.

School Rumble and D-Frag not only takes place at school but also stars a main male protagonist with traits of a delinquent. At school, they are notorious for their bad boy images that causes them to be ostracized. However, at the same time, they attract the unusual attentions of some characters in ways that are presented comically hysterical. There is a lot of comedy offered in both series. School Rumble does take on a more serious mood on various times but the point often draws out a line of fictional humor involving its characters.

they have a similar feel, set in school, a cast of unique characters, slightly absurd situations in nozaki revolving around manga and in d-frag around games.

Both will make you laugh, a lot.. tough I have to be honest Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is funnier, BUT in D-Frag, the protagonist is at least gettin' some (If You Know What I Mean).

Weird, abnormal, pretty girls, who have some fantasy images in their minds, and play it just for fun. It follows the main male character who was caught up in this situation where he was either experience one before, or was forced to join their club. Though, as time passes on, he join their antics and bond with the other club members. Chuunibyou, follows a normal boy who have experience these "delusions" before and was joined by a female character. Some fantasy action scenes, and romance. D-Frag follows a delinquent boy, who was abducted and joined the club.

Though they do have quite a few differences, I still think that they have similar humor, with a male Protagonist that gets thrown into many odd situations due to the quirky female cast around them. If you like one of them, you're likely to enjoy the other too ^.^

Both main protagonists acts like delinquents but gets pushed around by everyone else in their club. Lots of comedy that are similar to each other.

Comedies with simple male protagonists surrounded by a variety of girls and similar moe female leads.

Both show about a certain club in school. The boy appears to be the weakest one among the club, but he is great with words . Both boys are kind of delusional, Kazama thinks he delinquent while the Andou is just in his world. 
report Recommended by chatchalita
Both have the same setting and moods, not to mention the same type of story telling. Or at least in the sense that at first it seems like they have the same type of objective but then end up doing nothing with it through out the story. The characters and comedy within the story are different but they'll both give you a good laugh, and are different from the rest in the sense that they know where to hit on your funny bone to make you giggle or cry laughing.

A club composed of mostly girls, a tortured guy, and possibly a harem. Both almost have the same kind of comedy and are very lighthearted and funny.

A main character getting pulled into an irregular club? That's how D-Frag and Sabagebu brings together a group of characters at school with their unusual activities. Both series' main protagonist gets dragged into a club after one faithful day with a girl. These unusual circumstances also makes them a prime target for mischief as they settle with their new life. Both series has a diverse cast of characters each equipped with their own personalities. While the premise is different, each character also has their own skills in survival/combat. In the case of D-Frag, it's elemental attacks. For Sabagebu, it's their skills in handling firearms. I  read more

I got very similar vibes to Binbougami ga from D Frag for some reason, I think it's because of the very similarly styled comedy value.

A relatively normal guy has to put up with a bunch of weird girls who like to mess with him as well as a masochistic pervert "friend." The main girl in both is voiced by Hanazawa Kana.

What makes these two shows similar is the scene between the characters. Both Main Male Mc's (Kenji and Akutsu) are living their lives surrounded by the foolish hijinks of the girls around them. Kenji plays a bigger role in dfrag, however both shows focus on comedy over the crazy events that happen to them, with more subtle hints of romance in dfrag.

Both series are hilarious and both series revolve around a male high school student who is the "straight man" of the series and is surrounded by a bunch of weird characters.

Surprisingly I found a lot of resemblance while watching Angel Beats, the jokes, the set-in-school environment, these are very similar yet different... Both Angel Beats & D-Frag tend to focus on the comedy more than on romance, while also having a similar artstyle.

Theme's different, but both share a boke and tsukkomi shtick, and characters have additional background provided for "serious" depth.

Stereotypical high school delinquents, clubs, main character gets involved with weirdoes at his school. The opening songs are from the same artist. Both are in my opinion among the best comedy anime out there.

Both are about a guy who is forced to join a ridiculous club with weird people, and because of this they get dragged into fights about something stupid (d-frag-which is the real game Club and ben-to-who gets the bento that are on sale). They are both very funny and if you like one you will like the other.

Both anime are a mix of clubs getting involved in clubs with main characters being reluctant to want to participate in hijinks that make them even more confused and bewildered as possible

Both are very funny and enjoyable. Both have cute characters and funny characters. Both have little romance in them.

There is a sudden degree of odd elements present that defines high school clubs. For starters, delusions come into play with fantasy thoughts playing in the heads of our main characters. As much bizarre as these series can get, they also question anything that directly or indirectly affects them and solves it with their own methods. The main male protagonist gets himself involved with such clubs reluctantly after sudden circumstances. Although seemingly against the whole idea, the main characters do begin to appreciate more of themselves and the club's members. At the same time, they still make brash comments about others. Both series still adapt a comedy  read more

Both series is about the Main Character being forced to join a group full of Chuunibyou's and do various stuff, D-frag's focus is on creating games white Chuubyou boys is about being heroes. and both Main Character is struggling to understand his/her "Friends" Both are fun to watch though for me D-Frag is more funnier.  
report Recommended by MetalTsundere
Top ridiculous comedy. Over the top exaggerated and lovable characters. Both are great anime to see if you just want to laugh. The main difference is that Nichijou's comedy is more heavily animated to create even more chaos out of the situations and D-Frag! has a harem-type approach but it is not main point of the series.  
report Recommended by EDCH
Both are about game-making with somewhat similar protagonists. Also, Sakura is basically Yuuka. Inada is pretty similar to Teruha, too. And although both are pretty funny, D-Frag is more of a pure comedy, but Shoujo-tachi really gets into the struggles of making a game and keeping with the deadline, it gets serious when it wants to.

Well, how can I say it? Basically, both of this anime's voice acting are really spot on that it amplifies the comedic atmosphere by a thousand percent.

I kinda feel some similarities while watching both shows, - They both have this random kind of thing while still "kind of" maintaining the story. - They both have the Male Protagonist as the "Normal Guy" (For Nourin he's a bit idiotic and deep) - They both have somewhat a sweet little Romance even tho it's mainly Comedy - I think that they have the same kind of feeling while you watch them

In both animes you will have games and hobbies as the main topic. School clubs are the places these game-otakus will meet. While in D-Frag! the gaming club already exists and shows on a hilarious way their obsessions with everything related to every existing game, in NMSB they want to resurface the quiz club. It's very interesting the fact all the characters in both animes particularly have different interests but an objective in common. D.Frag! is funnier than NMSB but both really enjoyable.

Long story short if you like a ridiculous comedy about those who love games then you will find both series really enjoyable. Short story, long - They do have small bits of romance, but the games themselves drive the plot of the story. The only difference between the two series is that D-Frag is set primarily in a school setting, whereas Full Dive is primarily within the game itself.

The context is very different because D-frag take place in a school and Senyuu in a fantasy world but they have the same kind of silly and over the top humor with weird characters and one guy (the protagonist) who don't get what the hell is going on.

Main Similarities: •Plot is somewhat similar... kinda (Involves the main character joining a group/club. At first, he doesn't like the idea but over time, he happens to enjoy it causing him to stay in the club. Plus most of the members are female, causing a harem-feel since many of the females fall for the male lead). •Mainly takes place in school. •Similar genres (harem, school, etc.). •Similar feel (happy, upbeat, some comedy, etc.). •Length of the shows are about the same (each has 1 season - 12 episodes about 24 minutes long with some OVAs). I find these shows underrated, but that's my opinion.

School anime with simillar style of over the top absurd commedy. Both blow really petty and stupid stuff out of proportion. 
report Recommended by blackhaulmike
D-frag and Hyouka both have a central focus on an obscure school club that goes through adventures and bonding time. The MC in both shows are dragged around by the female lead. Finally, both shows do not really have a central story to them, just a group of friends going about their everyday life. However, in Hyouka, they have a more serious/mysterious atmosphere, while in D-frag, the things they go through are mostly for comedic value/entertainment.

Parodies of bishoujo (D-Frag) and bishounen (DamePri) series. One could call them harems, but the protagonist is basically the only "straight man/woman" in a cast full of self-absorbed narcissists and isn't likely to fall in love with any of them. If they weren't forced into it, they'd stay far away from this nonsense.

The type of comedy is kind of similar, both protagonists are the 'straight men' surrounded by weird and eccentric characters who aren't aware of how weird they are. Arakawa Under the Bridge has more absurdest comedy than D-Frag, to the extent where 'mentally ill' might be a better term for most of the characters than 'eccentric'. Arakawa could sometimes get slow at parts, that wasn't an issue with D-Frag (but D-frag is shorter). Neither anime has a conclusive ending. D-frag is in highschool, Arakawa's cast is mostly adult.

Both may have different character setup but both of it is anti-generic (or pretty much poking with tropes), they both do have the same level of creativity on observational comedy and usage of spontaneous humor about gaming, though Ixion Saga have redundant Blue comedy (traps) in it while D-Frag doesn't use it much.
