Looking for anime (similar to Toaru Kagaku no Railgun)
 
It's kind of a complicated request, but I fell in love with the anime To Aru Kagaku no Railgun and I'm looking for something similar. Something with comedy/slice of life/school settings/students with powers and sorts. Looking for something with good number of episodes too (24+).

If anyone can suggest any.
Note: I've already seen
To Aru Mejutso no Index
Sakugan no Shana
Zettai Karen Children
Mai Hime

Thanks.

Angel Beats! - not exactly the same thing but for one characters are immortal since they are in heaven. Series are set in school and have lots of comedy as well as action. Characters gang up against so called "Angel" who can materialize her hands into weapons.
Worth a try, though series are short.

Ao no Exorcist - shounen set at exorcists school. Has lots of comedy, school setting, not exactly slice of life but has it's moments. Some powers.

Mmmm, not exactly same thing but you could try Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?. It is set at school, full of comedy, slice if life elements and action with some powers.

If you don't mind something more serious and depressing, you could try Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica. Slightly similar to Mai HiME series but darker.

Not the best series in the world but maybe Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle? Though there are no super powers, all battles are done by solving unique death puzzles. Though series are kind of childish.

Rosario + Vampire is a good choice though manga is 20 times better. Anime is more of a fanservice with no real story. And some things were change drastically badly.

Yumekui Merry maybe? Most things happen at school ground but inside a dream.

Sadly that's all I can think of at the moment.

Macademi Wasshoi - school setting, main character is learning magic. Kinda harem-ish but it's pretty funny. I really enjoyed it. Downside it's only 12 epis.

Thanks for the current suggestions. Any others?

Full Metal Panic

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Still looking for a few more. Getting a good list so far.

I suggest Senki Zesshou Symphogear

If you could accept tanks instead of "powers" then maybe Girls und Panzer?

And seconding Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica if you can handle something a bit darker.

Gakuen Alice is a pretty good one.

Dennou Coil is another excellent one. The first half is more lighthearted and sets up for the second half, which is incredible. The protagonists are kids, but the themes are definitely more serious than those targeted towards kids.

Thirding Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

I'll mention one title that you probably won't watch anyways, but mentioned for great justice: Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon/ Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere.

Fits every requirement and then some, well...except the slice of life part.

High School DxD and Campione! if you don't mind more with "plots"(read: fanservice)

Try Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu for the more lighthearted one.

For a more serious suggestion, I'll give Accel World.

Thanks for the suggestions though!

Since you liked Railgun, I'd suggest giving Rinne no Lagrange a shot if you're okay with a light mecha component instead of ESP powers. It's got two seasons of twelve episodes, though the first season is the better of the two (season two started well, but the ending was disappointing).
