Heaven's Lost Property

This anime like Angel Beats! is one that I enjoyed. A teenage boy called Tomoki Sakurai often dreams of a girl asking for her help all the time, but could never remember her face every time he wakes up. Tomoki Sakurai always believed in peace and tranquility. However, one day, he witnesses an UMA(Unidentified Mysterious Animal) crashes and lands nearby. He soon discovers that a winged female humanoid called Ikaros, was in that UMA and declares to be his servant. More and more of these angels starting arriving, he loses the peace and tranquility that he enjoys, but he also gains pleasant things from the "Angeloids".

Similarities to Angel Beats!

Plenty of comedy and romance and supernatural beings. However, it has ecchi scenes, so that might not be something you like. But hey, most anime always have some fan service, which I don't blame them.

Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts

Akihisa Yoshii, the "baka" of the anime, is the protagonist. The academy that he is in is divided by the different ranks based on "smartness". The smart students are in the "A" class and they have luxury classrooms. On the other hand, the delinquent students are in the "F" class, with sub-par classrooms compared to the "A" class. Mizuki Himeji, one of the brightest students caught a fever and ended failing a test, landing her in the "F" class, the same class as Akihisa. Together with the Himeji, Akihisa rallies his classmates to seize the luxury stuff that the higher rank class enjoys by summoning creatures.
