Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?
Both are heartwarming stories about tsunderes (Ririchiyo is 'tsun-shun' apparently!) coming out of their shell and learning about portraying their emotions normally, though InuxBoku has more of a supernatural element to it while Toradora! is more school-life based.
Such as Ziggy said, both are similar heartwarming romance stories with the only difference whereas InuxBoku SS has supernatural elements and Toradora is school-life centered.
Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.
Both anime are romances with a twist of the supernatural. The stories themselves revolve around different issues. In Inu x Boku the story is more about character development, while there is a sort of adventure plot driving Earl and Fairy. All in all they're both solid stories told in just a few episodes.
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
Both of these shows are much deeper than they appear on the surface. They start out light hearted and silly, yet get more and more complicated and dark as they progress. They are also both part of a very unique set of shows where the more you learn about the characters and their backstories, the more your opinion of them changes, and no one is quite who they appear to be on the surface. In addition, in both shows the characters can transform into magical beings from the past, and those transformations play a major role in defining their personalities. But the heart of both shows is character exploration, not magical school girls. Both shows leave you with a similar feeling, and if you liked one for the emotional rollarcoaster and the way it surprised you at every turn, then you will like other.

Both animes have loli/small Tsundere type female characters/ Lead male characters wanting to protect. Both animes have a supernatural, rommance undertone theme going on. If you liked one you'll most likely enjoy the other.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Holy moly. There are so many similarities between these two.
