Student A, with quirky ability B, enrolls in special school C, meets and forms some form of relationship with popular student D.

So I just described 4 different anime series currently airing this season, The Asterisk War, Chivalry of a Failed Knight, the 35th test platoon, and technically Testament of New Sister Devil Burst. And it seems that this whole thing gets used a lot... So I have two questions.... 1 does this type of show have its own genre you can sort it into (if you like it and want to watch more of them) and what is it called... or should it be called. Question 2 is... can you name more that fit this mold?

I don't think simply harem is quite the term. I just call them magical school series.

I'd say his description fits the "magical school" category, but I wouldn't but The Testament of Sister New Devil in with that.

Oh yeah. True true. Testament has a school, but not a magical one. But i wonder what kind of "school" the heroes go to?

I think "Magical School" would a theme that all four of those anime share rather than a genre. The primary genre for those would be either Fantasy or Ecchi.

Isn't it more of a love triangle though? (If anything)

I think Magical School still fits for New Testament since all the MCs have magic/special powers.
