Comedy anime series will always have a special place in the hearts of otaku's everywhere; they always have a way of getting way too realistic while still being incredibly funny. Baka and Test is certainly one of those shows that, while being completely fictional in the school's grading system, tends to have very real moments we can all relate to. Even if you've been out of high school for a while, you probably remember the horrors of test taking and having a crush on the cutest person in the class. Akihisa Yoshii, the "baka" of the title, has never been good at school which has left him in the F class, the lowest ranking one in the entire school. Unlike a normal academy, the lower classes receive fewer resources and creature comforts whereas the higher end classes are given luxuries and anything their heart desires. In order to change things, Akihisa and his friends will have to battle with their knowledge in hopes of gaining more respect from the school.
There are plenty of series about high school students that hold the same amount of humor. Classics like Ouran Host Club where the impossible happens to unsuspecting students or School Rumble where unlikely students will have to work together in order to achieve their goal are all fantastic recommendations to follow Baka and Test.

Koudo Ikusei Senior High School is a seemingly perfect school where students are treated exceptionally well; at least that's what it looks like on the surface. However, the school's classes are actually ranked in a similar fashion to those seen in Baka and Test where those in top classes are treated far more favorably. Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is in class D where everything is infinitely harder. He meets Suzune Horikita, who's determined to climb her way back to the top by earning an A ranking, even if she has to stay with her class. With no restrictions on what methods can be used to get ahead, it's every student for themselves at this school!10816Is this a great next watch?
Baka and Test wasn't that much of a harem, so if you liked the kind of comedy that came out of the show, but would also prefer more romance, Nisekoi is a perfect string of misfortune and humor to brighten your day! Raku Ichijou wants nothing to do with his family's yakuza background, but fate seems to have a different idea in mind. When the American Bee Hive Gang invades his family's turf, he must pretend to be in a relationship with the leader's daughter, Chitoge Kirisaki, in order to maintain peace between the two groups. However, Raku already had a crush of his own and there seem to be other girls with their eyes on him. A romantic comedy riddled with unfortunate events, it's an excellent anime.6818Is this a great next watch?
Going to an all-boys academy, Sanada North High School isn't the worst thing in the world when you have great friends by your side. Hidenori, Yoshitake, and Tadakuni live normal everyday lives, which can be kind of boring after a while. In their minds, the world is full of giant robots and love drama that, unfortunately for them, can only be experienced in their imagination. At least they can say there's always something going on when they've got nothing else to do! A story about three boys just trying to pass the time, this is a great anime series that pairs well with Baka and Test for its high school comedy theme.5212Is this a great next watch?
