The guy in both Anime is accused of being a pervert when he really isn't one or isn't intentionally trying to perv. As for the main female character, she easily becomes jealous, she has a temper and has issues of some kind.

They both have the "boy-meet-girl" trend. They both feature a tsudere, shorty, and powerful (in terms of battles) character voiced by Rie Kugimiya. Both produced by J.C. Staff.

Both female leads are tsunderes. The female and male leads in both of these anime have the same seiyuus. Basically, Hidan no Aria (Aria the Scarlet Ammo) is Toradora with guns.

Kinda similar in some ways: includes some sort of relationship with boys and girls carrying out a gun in school grounds and fighting against one another for some certain reasons. It's comedy and enjoyable to watch! Great animations as well

The guys in the Anime happen to be a special person who is allowed to go to a special school. There are harems involved, plenty of action and crazy chaos.

Hidan no Aria is not quite the same but it also involves having the male character urge to protect the female lead. Similar genres.

They're both action,school with some romance. There are some magic in both,though,in Highschool DxD more. If you liked Highschool DxD I think you will like Hidan no Aria,too ! In short,in both animes is a highschool boy that one day met a girl and his all life changed because of her.

It's basically the same thing: a guy who doesn't want to do anything and just wants a normal life, but then they're stuck with a girl who is abusive and has to have everything go their way. On the other hand, Kinji goes into h.s.s mode that makes him into a super cool genius, and Ryner just has natural talent with the help of his alpha stigma eyes

These two shows are really similar. They're both set in psychotic boarding schools where teenagers are trained in combat, but still have to deal with real fights on a regular basis. They have several genres in common (action, ecchi, harem etc.) and a number of characters with similar backgrounds, abilities or personalities: Tor===>Kinji- Both have very tragic past involving the death of a sibling, are weak on their own but have a unique ability to make up for it, seriously lacking in confidence and soon discover their past has a connection to the heroine's Julie===>Aria- Both are very short for their age, dual-wield swords, driven by familial  read more

Similarities: Both have the same situation where it involves teens doing public safety. Both involves the same plot where the public is in peril. Both have the same harem element, Both also have the same action genre. Dissimilarities: One was set in a school where students need to do a job for grades, while the other anime is a place where teens works to earn their checks. One involves a two people duet to do a job, while the other is a 4 people job.

There are two ways about those two. In Hidan no Aria, they will fight some criminals. But in Michiko to Hatching, they will fight some gang members. But the two characters are partners for each other to fight criminals and gang members.

Super powered girls surround a seemingly normal guy.Both schools they attend gives the group of main Charcthers missions and the school itself is strange and full of strong people.But the difference eraser the main guy is in Hidan no Aria he can be decivingly strong and brave while In Majiko oh samurai girls the main guy uses his brain instead of his strength,and Both of Harrem/Action too.

Both anime have very similar characters. Kinji - Kyon, Shirayuki - Mikuru, Reki - Yuki, and Aria - Haruhi! The type of depiction (in my opinion) is the same. And the atmosphere, the humor of the two series are identical.

Super powered kids go to a school that teaches them how to fight.Hidan no Aria is more of a harem/action while soul eater is more of a shounen.The school in Soul Eater is always super natural while in Hidan no Aria only a few classes are.And in both shows the main Charcthers take contracts.

Seemingly normal schools but with a supernatural/abnormal twists.Baka to test is more of a comedy while Hidan no Aria is more of a Action.

Well, characters share similar relationships, and there is similar feeling about them. 
report Recommended by BlakeAnimeFreak
Both feature schools whose aim is too train students in an unconventional way having to do with bringing justice and apprehending criminals. One is more comedy based and one is more ecchi based 
report Recommended by Tanstafl
They are both comedies with a military style background and a good sense of romance between the two main characters. Though FMP is 3 seasons long and hidan no aria is short. 
report Recommended by MBreeze
If you're interested in military schools with badass male leads,girls with guns in action and a little bit of magic/superpowers...you might like this both.

Grisaia no Kajitsu's main male lead is simply Hidan no Aria's lead with his assassin mode left on. These Anime's also both contain a lot of the same features: - A strong male Lead. - A main love interest (With other party's trying to get involved.) - In depth Character development. - An action packed story. - A out of the ordinary school setting. There are some differences for instance: - Grisaia no Kajitsu is classed as an Harem (Hidan no Aria is not but does contain many features of a harem.) - Hidan no Aria contains humans with supernatural powers.

Hero of the past who descends in the present, taking the name of their past life and protecting their daily lives, that would be the main reason why Seiken Tsukai no World Break and Hidan no Aria are very similar. not to mention Tooyama Kinji(HNA) and Haimura Moroha(World Break) daily life being surrounded with cute girls. Both great anime series to watch!  
report Recommended by Chento
Both series are romances and revolve around young girl assassins.

COMMON: In both the main female character is a tsundere(I think Mio from MM is more kamidere than tsundere). In both the male main character has a special ability.Taro from MM has a ridiculous amount of "Pervert Energy" while Kinji from Hidan no Aria has "Hysteria Mode"(very similar to "Pervert Energy") In both is a girl who is jealous of the main couple(Shirayuki from Hidan no Aria and Yuno from MM) UNCOMMON: In Hidan no Aria the school is more special (high school for mercenaries) while in MM is a typical school. In Hidan no Aria is a lot of action while in MM  read more

Both male protagonists have more than one girl going for them in the series (although I wouldn't consider either of them to be "serious" harem by any means), and at least one of those girls in both series shows their love for the protagonist in creepy, overbearing ways and demonstrates extraordinary skill in a certain area - although Sakurasou probably pulls this off without being as cliché or unrealistic.

Both have male leads with special talents, romance, and many female characters. 
report Recommended by jbluberry235
Both are action anime that have a girl suddenly joining the main character who then fight together against various enemies. They both use effective humor, have entertaining action scenes, and have deep characters. Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi is a little more fantasy-based with magic and vampires, but it doesn't overly affect the story. 
report Recommended by Linollieum
Both involve magic and guns and give off the same feeling from the anime. Both have a girl who meets a boy. The guy used to be normal until he met someone and then after has to use magical powers. 
report Recommended by iNinjeek
Similar main characters in the guy and girl teaming up to defeat the greater evil. Also from the same company, so there are some of the same plot-driven ideas in both titles.

Both animes are training schools that teaches the students weaponry.

Both series include power-ups by ecchi. Both are battle harems. Masou Gakuen is a lot more ecchi, though.

Both main females are dual wielders of pistols and are given jobs. The only difference Revy is more of a bad ass than Aria is.

OK now I accept that for many it could be a miss but!.. If you liked Madoka for its dark side that for now I couls day there is nothing in Aria which could lean you more to it... Aria has a girl similar to Okami san and her 7 companions Turtle girl, than all that serial killer stuff kind of brings nostalgy back from GitS SolidStateSociety and than this main guy who changes personality around girls is just like one from Special A, that is a serious compilation of many anime oh and I almost forgot a school were you are being tought in  read more

The main character, Kazuma, has an overconfident personality like that of Tooyama Kinji from Hidan no Aria. The main character's partner having respectable power as well as the ability to hide her true feelings.

both anime about a group of people of people who fight using guns only there's some romance in Hidan No Aria and none in Jormungand  
report Recommended by TheBigOtaku122
Both the series are all about a protagonist in an overly violent setting surrounded by girls who just happen to be incredibly important historical figures (admittedly in Hidan no Aria, they are descendents of those figures, but all the same). Both are shows worth watching and if you like the way that the back-story in each is related to the histories of the characters in namesakes then they are both for you!

Similarities: Both animes were in a school setting, with an extra harem genre. Both animes has a girl who came out of nowhere and then sudden, enters the muchachos' (male lead) life and messes with it. Both animes features the muchachos having special ability. Both muchachos simply wanted a simple and quite life. Both animes have one member of the harem who's a yandere. The lead chicas in both animes were also tsundere, and were also feared by their muchachos. Oh, by the way,just recently, both muchachos' voice actors also did the voices to other character from different animes. The voice actor of Magikano did the voice of the lead  read more

In both anime the main characters are descendants of a famous historical figure. There is a lot of action because the main characters are sought after because of their heritage. Also, both anime have a delicious loli.
