Short, absurd sketches parodying yaoi tropes. Blatantly exaggerated, deformed, deliberately bad, and thus funny. Don't take them seriously because they are not serious.

Gakuen Handsome frequently parodies shounen ai anime and games, especially Gakuen Heaven. Not only is there tons of boy's love in both series, they are both funny.

Gakuen Handsome and Ishida to Asakura are both short comedies that feature some extreme gags and come up with ridiculous scenarios and situations for their characters. Some of the gags are very out there and each show has very similar undertones, if you enjoyed the pacing and hilarity of either show I would recommend the other.

Shigeo wa Handsome and Gakuen Handsome are about very handsome men and the various problems surrounding their beauty. Both anime are bizarre and funny.

Both Ai Mai Mii and Gakuen Handsome have short episodes filled with silly random humor. They also have crude animation and hilarious visuals.

Not only are they both short anime, that you can quickly finish, they both deal with high school boys and the topic of boys love in a comedic way.

Bite-sized pieces of high-energy comedy that will probably leave you a little confused at what exactly just happened at the end of each episode. 
report Recommended by Achachan
Both short series feature similar type of humor and simple ans short visual gags. While Sakigake! is all about boys delinquents, Gakuen Handsome jokes about a different aspect of being in a all-boys high school. Art style of both anime also sets a scene that resembles one another.  
report Recommended by Halettan
They are both short, extremely low-budget, and intentionally shoddily made, with random and nonsensical plots. Inferno Cop is more over-the-top, while Gakuen Handsome more directly parodies the otome/yaoi genre. If you enjoy so-bad-it's-good humor, you will like both of these series.
