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?

If you liked Zero no Tsukaima, I think you would like My-Otome because magical girls are the main aspect of both plots. Both animes also combine comedy, romance, drama and fantasy. Finally, they both take place in an academy-school.

MaraRuizu

Both Mai-Otome and Zero no Tsukaima have plots dealing with master-servant relations and magic (or high enough technology that it's pretty much magic, in Mai-Otome's case). Both also feature humour, action and small amounts of ecchi. Mostly, they strike me as they would be enjoyed for the same reasons.

MM!

MM!

Seeking a cure for his depraved masochism, Taro Sado approaches the Second Volunteer Club on the recommendation of his best friend, Tatsukichi. There he finds the help of the violent but kind Mio Isurugi who promises to beat the masochism out of him by any means necessary. Will Taro be able to survive the assaults of this upperclassman, the overly-affectionate attentions of his mother and sister, and still lead a normal school life? Unlikely. But will he get over his perverse fetish? He sure hopes so.

Both anime are romantic comedies with many funny moments, tsundere female leads and love triangles.

Suimin

If you enjoy watching a tsundere girl boss around, harshly insult, and beat up the male lead, then you'll love both MM! and Zero no Tsukaima.

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.

eaper

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.

Both deal with a fantasy realm and include things such as humans, elves and other fantast beings co-existing. Each anime has its plot twists and are both similar in their sense of genre. If you enjoyed one, you are sure to enjoy the other.

If you liked the European-esque Medival type stuff with dragons and magic with romace these two animes are for you. They have different stories and characters in a lot of ways but still are very similar.

Princess Lover!

Princess Lover!

One day, after a visit to his parents' grave, Teppei Arima spies a damsel in distress, and nobly saves her from a gang of thugs. Relieved and grateful, she introduces herself as Princess Charlotte Hazelrink. Thinking nothing more of this, Teppei soon receives a surprise call from his grandfather, informing him that he is the heir to the Arima business empire and therefore one of the richest men on the planet! Teppei is introduced to his personal maid, Yuu, and various blue-bloods, among them his arranged fiancee, Sylvia - a fencer with a tongue as sharp as her blade. At school the next day, Teppei meets more new faces, including the snooty Seika Houjouin, and - much to his surprise - Princess Charlotte Hazelrink. Still awkward and uncouth, Teppei must somehow adjust to high society. With girls pursuing him at every turn, however, that may be the least of his concerns...

Both anime are a harem featuring a guy dropped into a life he didn't expect. Both anime also have plenty of fan service and ecchi moments, and the guy is surrounded by girls he often has to save.

cahbayb

Both a harem where the male is put into situations of rescue. Although Princess Lover is pretty perverted and a much more shallow plot you i think if you like on youd like the other.
