In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?
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?
If you like School Days you'll definitely like Zero no Tsukaima because they both have a good amount of humor and romance.

Samatarou is the son of God and is currently living on Earth with his family and guardian angel named Tenko, in order to better understand humans. Having God as his father means that everything always goes the way Samatarou wants; and as a result, he has been unable to enjoy his life among humans and wishes nothing more than to live life as a normal human being. Suddenly, one day a new girl transfers to his class and he develops a crush on her at first sight. How is he supposed to win her heart on his own when his whole family tries to do everything for him? And is it really just friendship that he feels towards the angel who is always by his side?
Young love, unrequited love and unfulfilled love feature heavily in both of these series. Both set in highschool with a similar cast, they look at what it was like to have a crush and the mistakes made.
I would recommend both series if you like a dark twist too. School Days takes that darkness to the extreme, whereas it is hinted towards more in Kamisama Kazoku.
