Both have great stories, are very emotionally charged, and have similar feels. Mahou is much darker in the bulk of the episodes, while Angel Beats has more comic relief, but both are powerful anime that I highly recommend.

both have an ideal of universal happenings, in some sort of another, both contain action that is relevant and meaningful, but they also leave you with an eerie feeling towards the end, and somewhat through both of them

What starts off light, gradually gets darker and sadder. Although Madoka is a bit more graphic.

Both shows have a great soundtrack, top notch action sequences, and similar themes. They also both start in a foreign setting with very little exposition to begin with; from there, character development takes a large focus as you gradually become accustomed to the respective universes.

Angel Beats! is a bit more irreverant and a great deal more comedic than Madoka Magica, but aside from this the two shows match each other quite well.

Both involve a group of characters fighting against some kind of force until they reach a bittersweet end to the story.

Madoka is about girls who face death, and Angel Beats is about kids who want to stay dead together.
