Synopsis:

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?

In both these anime, there is lots of magic mixed with a romance. The main characters are brought into a world filled with magic that they've never seen before. This leads to unexpected romance for all.

InuYasha

InuYasha

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.

Kannagi

Kannagi

Mikuriya Jin makes a woodcarving from the remains of a guardian tree, but he gets much more than he bargained for when girl materializes from the statue! Her name is Nagi, the troublesome and at times violent deity of the land; and with nowhere to go, she announces that she will stay with Jin. Now, with Jin’s help and a magical girl wand purchased at the local convenience store, Nagi aims to exorcise the impurities that are infecting the land. Though when the sacred tree is finally uprooted, it is only a matter of time before her powers will diminish; thus, a new object of worship is required, and what better object than Nagi herself! However, obtaining your goal of becoming a popular idol is not so straightforward, especially when you have to compete with your sister, who is unwilling to share her fan base and plans to sabotage you at every step!

Both have female leads with supernatural powers and have the male leads wrapped around their little fingers.

Kare Kano and Zero no Tsukaima may not seem similar at all, but the parallels of a love story and the struggle to get through highschool are the same. Though Yukino is #1 (and then #2) at her school and Louise is a "Zero," their troubles are remarkably similar, and both complicated by their feelings for another character.
