If high-minded tsundere female main characters are your sort of thing, be sure to check out OreShura. Kirino and Masuzu are very similar, and OreImo 2's "pretend to be my boyfriend" episode reminded me of the premise for OreShura.

Both OreImo and Yahari are comedies featuring a number of female characters centering around a single male. While OreImo's male lead could be considered a little bland, Yahari's certainly is not, he's a pretty unique character all things considered, and is one of the main things that sets the two shows apart. The others being Yahari's altogether more impressive secondary character pool, and it's better comedy.
