Very similiar alternate worlds with the main characters not realising that they have powers that can change everthing.

But deep down, there's more to Itsuki. He always wears an eyepatch, hiding the results of an incident from his childhood; what other secrets does he hold? And can he handle the responsibilities while his father is missing?
When watching 11eyes, the main character constantly reminded me of the main character from Rental Magica. Specifically, the eye, the power, and the company they end up surrounding themselves in. Add in the supernatural stuff, the fact that they are students in each series, and there are a number of similarities. If you enjoyed one, I think you might like the other.
