Want a taste of ridiculous and over-the-top prison comedy? Try either one of these shows! On the more ecchi side of the spectrum lies Prison School, pretty much a BDSM fantasy that's both raunchy and brutal for the prisoners Nanbaka OTOH places more emphasis on its colorful sparkly bishounen character designs and atmosphere for its aesthetic.
- Both anime involve a strict system with over-enthusiastic guards: Nanbaka involves a tight prison; Cheating Craft involves an important exam.
- Both anime involve characters who try to get around the systems.
- Both anime involve a large cast of characters on both sides of the system
-Both anime have a formidable prison (In Nanbaka the prison is the main setting, while in Blood Lad its just a minor setting).
-Both MCs have a group with unique members (Vampire & Demons in Blood Lad / "Super" humans in Nanbaka).
-Similar artstyle and color scheme.
-Both focused on action and comedy.
Sure Servamp and Nanbaka have completely different stories but do indeed share some similarities
- Both anime have interesting characters and character designs
- Both anime have action sequences
- Both anime have some comedy (Nanbaka has way more though)
If you liked either show you should at least give the other a shot
-primarily all-male characters
-at times a gag anime, but grows more emotional and complex further into the series
-focuses on relationships between characters (though, one follows brothers and the other cellmates)
-characters Kuro (Servamp) and Jyugo (Nanbaka) are conflicted and come to terms with themselves [and the things they've done] in the series
Both Kuuchuu Buranko and Nanbaka have eye-popping crazy animation style that you can't look away from. They both have a unique cast of characters, and random comedy to lighten up the grim setting (Being in jail vs getting treated for a mental disorder).
I can't believe no one's made a recommendation for these two yet - Nanbaka and Gintama are so alike!
They're both anime that parody the comedy genre. The fourth-wall breaking's a recurring theme in both, as are the references to different anime throughout the shows. The gag humour is hilarious in both - Nanbaka doesn't even try to make sense most of the time and knows it, and Gintama's humour can be very similar.
The characters - even the side characters - are loveable and great fun to watch. Nanbaka does have a lot (and I mean a lot!) more sparkles and glitter - even at its emotional parts everything will still be sparkling in the background - and Gintama has its dark(ish) parts, emotional parts, and the humour's a lot cruder, but watching one really felt like watching the other.
Nanbaka's short, so there's a 'why not? you might as well watch it!' factor there, and Gintama takes time to get into but is well worth the reward - if you stick with it, you'll be a devout fan by the final arc.
They are definitely both acquired tastes, so not for everyone, but if you enjoyed one I'd go for the other. XD
Both shows, Saiki Kusuo and Nanbaka, have the similar factor of heavy comedy in the earlier episodes. Although Nanbaka strays away from comedy and focuses more on serious issues in the latter portion, Saiki Kusuo holds true to the comedic aspect and carries through 'till the end.
If you've seen Nanbaka and enjoy the wit and humor of the characters, Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan is definitely something you should consider.

If you liked Nanbaka, you'll like Inaba. If you liked Inaba, you'll like Nanbaka.
Amagi Brilliant Park and Nanbaka have both a very colorful art style. They are both comedy-based, but they are also kind of sad and dark at the same time. The main characters from both series (Juugo from Nanbaka and Seiya Kanie from Amagi Brilliant Park) have both supernatural 'powers'. Both series have also lot of characters with 'special' characteristics like: the airheaded one, the pervert, the one who thinks he is the best (etc.)...
Nanbaka and Hataraku Maou-sama! are both really comedic shows, however there are some serious times as well when it gets a bit tense because of the action going on (more so for Nanbaka).
There is a colourful cast of characters for both shows and are quite entertaining. Although the plotlines are extremely different, people who enjoyed one of them are likely to enjoy the other too.
