ZnT and Negima involve magic, a lot of girls, and a main character who is connected to them. Both anime are also very funny and have the same kind of weird humor, while still having a good story. Also if you are into fanservice, both series have plenty of it but in a funny not annoying way.

Both are based around magic, school, and ecchi. Lot's female characters in both shows. And both have people who have no idea about magic learning about it and becoming involved with those who use magic.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

Granted the theme isnt quite the same, but if you like the kind of humor that is presented in both animes, it will be a great watch! The weirdness levels of both animes are presented in a similair way even though Zero no Tsukaima is more about magic then Ouran High School Host Club, they both have the school life theme and absurd humour to keep you entertained.

Although these anime have an extremely different plot and setting, both of them are still centered around a character that is "out-of-place,"  and are extremely comic series with a romance happening in the back ground.

Slayers

Slayers

Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

Those two anime have really, really similar main character - pretty girl that can use magic - and while she does, it doesn't always end the way she would want... Energetic, childish, jealous, funny, always getting in trouble - that way you can describe both Lina and Louise. If you loved one of these young ladies, you will fall for another in no time!

Rilkar Rilkar says...

Both shows take place in a fantasy RPG setting and involve action, comedy, and romance. And in both shows the female leads are tsundere for the male lead. If you like one you should watch the other.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

Full Metal Panic and Zero no Tsukaima have two things in common. First, they both have amazing humor, which is basically Girl getting mad at boy, for boy behaving totally inappropriate. The other is the perfect balance between action and story. Both have their moments of cool action, but also they dig really deep into the emotion life of the (main)characters. If you like either Full Metal Panic or Zero no Tsukaima, you'll definately like the other.

Magic and mechas are two different things. Modern day Japan and a fantasy medieval like other world are also two different things entirely. So why are these two animes similar? The main character is thrown into a situation he is unprepared for in a world completely foreign to him. Saito is actually thrown into another world litterally where he becomes the familiar of Louise and is tasked with protecting her from harm. Sagura has been a mercenary since he was 8 and has now been thrown into the world of normal people (figuratively) and school life which is basically as foreign as it gets for him. His mission is to protect Chidori from those who want the secret knowledge she possesses. In a world they don't understand, both main characters must use their knowledge to fight all sorts of enemies to protect a girl....a rather abusive, rampaging, loud girl who likes to hit them for all their screw ups.

Both series have tsundere type female leads, whom make unwilling servants out of the male lead. Over time both master and servant grow to love one another and the servant begins to want to protect his master/love intrest. Both series deal with the female lead being magical and both share a similar romanic comedy with a good bit of action and magic to make both series a solid adventure and over all plot outside of the romance. BOTTOM LINE: If you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other. At the very least one will remind you of the other.

For all you guys who wanted a kawaii girl to think she's got her claws into you, these two animes are just right for you.  Louise and Hazuki share lots of charming dominance for you to enjoy!
