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?

Shuffle!

Shuffle!

Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?

Both series are mainly about budding love, yet both have a mythical, otherworldly quality. Shuffle! has women who are from the Demon world and Angel world vying for a mans attention, whereas Zero No Tsukaima has a man coming from earth as we know it to a whole different planet, where love begins to blossom between him and the women of that world. If you like romance with a little otherworldly twist, then you will surely enjoy one as you did the other.

Tears to Tiara

Tears to Tiara

Rhiannon is the fair and gentle daughter of a village chief. Unfortunately for her, she's also exactly the sort of maiden who is needed as a sacrifice to wake the Demon King Arawn from his thousand-year slumber and is soon kidnapped for this very purpose. However, when Arawn is summoned, he decides to spare Rhiannon's life, instead killing her captor and freeing her from mind control. Taken with his kindness, Rhiannon immediately decides to marry the Demon King, making him the new village chief. All of this is bad news for Rhiannon's protective but hot-headed brother Arthur, who must now pledge his knightly service to his new Lord, Arawn. Together the three of them must journey and together they must fight, encountering new friends and new foes along the way.

Both main characters are summoned from another world/dimension. They both are sword users but in tears to tiara the main character is highly skilled from the start. They are both harems with many different women falling in love with the main character, but Zero no Tsukaima is more open about that. If you like adventure, wording fighting and magic fighting either one is a very good choice.

KingFrost

Both stories revolve around a girl who is looked down upon by her peers and find enjoyment with the main guy character. Both are in school settings, even though Zero no Tsukaima is set in a school of magic, mysterious and supernatural events occur in Suzumiya. Many of the characters share the same personality traits as well. Louise and Haruhi are bossy. Both Saito and Kyon are forced in some sense to be with the respective female protagonists.(FYI, not in forced in love, I couldn't find a better way to word this)i Also minor characters are very similiar too. Overall, both are very good and comedic animes.
