Have a problem? Talk to Otogi Bank, a student aid group that helps people get what they need – for a hefty price. Led by Liszt Kiriki and staffed by tsundere Ryouko, inventor Majolica, jealous Otohime, flirtatious Tarou, serious Alice, nervous Ryoushi and maid Otsuu, Otogi Bank assists with everything from helping break into a rival school to convincing an upperclassman to not quit a sports team. Can Otogi Bank manage to make all their clients happy, and most importantly, will Ryoushi ever manage to win Ryouko’s heart?
Both these anime have the same kind of day & age feeling, as if they're both made in the same generation. The main protagonist in both anime are tsundere and are generally vicious towards the main male, although there are slight differences in the way they act, such as Ookami-san showing more appreciation towards the male than Louise. If you liked one you'll like the other, mmkay?.

I decided to recommend Zero no Tsukaima/Familar of Zero. I was actually a bit surprised it hadn't all ready been done. There is a lot of similarities between the main characters. Both girls are from nobility, both have a totally stuck up/self righteous attitude, and both more or less get stuck w/ these guys that a lot more real wolrd/laid back (and in both cases it drives the girls nuts)
So of course both are absolutely hilarious w/ some touching/romantic stuff thrown int too. Again, I was very surprised they hadn't been recommended before,
but now they have, if you've seen either one but not the other, trust me....you need to. NOW
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
Both Zero no Tsukaima and InuYasha involve someone who was transported into an unknown world, although in InuYasha it's not another world entirely but just several hundred years in the past. They both feel like just normal people from Japan but discover there is something different about them. They realize it as one or two seemingly simple missions become more and more complex. In both the female and male leads, Kagome and InuYasha, in InuYasha, and Saito and Louise in Zero no Tsukaima, fight constantly, with the female counterparts somehow hurting the male (although Louise is slightly more violent then Kagome). Both Inuyasha and Louise feel they are greater because of their status, InuYasha as a half-demon and Louise as an aristocrat. They both involve fantasy and both have fighting scenes while the Zero no Tsukaima revolves more on magic, inuYasha revolves mostly on strength and the powers that come with being a priest/priestess, exorcist, demon or half-demon. Both InuYasha and Louise have trouble within their family and are the outcasts among others.
After suffering a heart-wrenching rejection, anime and manga-loving Shinichi Kanou shuts himself off from the world and becomes a hikikomori. But the boy's solitary life soon comes to an end when he's hired as an ambassador to a newly-discovered world, where the only job criteria is to be a hardcore otaku! Now the boy must work hard to spread the word of this unique, nerdy culture in hopes of strengthening relations between the other world's citizens and Japan. And in a land filled with dragons, half-elf maids, and a teenage queen, it shouldn't be that hard... right?
As I started watching this, I quickly got a sense of Zero no Tsukaima. I'm actually surprised no ones really recommended them to each other. They are quite similiar in the way that these worlds are intertwined with our own and how the main protaganist ends up trying to instill their good natured values especially with the heiarchy system. In terms of comedy I found Outbreak Company to be much stronger but romance wise its yet to be determined. As this recommendation is made as of ep 4.
