Ookami Ryouko is a spunky and, by some accounts, rather manly high school girl. She is tall, speaks in a traditionally masculine way and is very proficient in fighting. Ookami-san's best friend is the small and high-pitched voiced Akai Ringo. Incidentally, the two are rather flat-chested, a fact the Narrator (voiced by Arai "Kuroko" Satomi of Railgun fame) is all too eager to point out.

Ookami and Ringo are members of the Otogi Bank, a club in Otogi High School that assists students with their problems in return for their assistance on a different problem at a later date; thus the Otogi Bank is effectively a loan institute for problems where you can take out a loan for a solved problem but you have to repay it sooner or later.

The Otogi Bank is able to solve any problem and will go to any lengths to do so, often leading the members to danger or mayhem. Since most of the members of the club are female, another male is needed for the more dangerous assignments. Thus, the scopophobic (the fear of being looked at) Morino Ryoushi is inducted as a member, right after he confesses his love for Ookami...

Once upon a time there was a series of light novels by Masashi Okita that played around with certain well known fairy tales. Due to a strange twist of fate (or a complete lack of ideas), the series was chosen to be adapted into anime form, and they all lived happily ever after.

Well, not quite.

Directed by Iwasaki Yoshiaki (Gokujou Seitokai, Wagaya no Oinari-sama, Gunbuster, Love Hina), Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi (Ookami-san and her Seven Companions), follows the adventures of Ookami Ryouko and her colleagues from the Otogi Bank as they solve people's problems, right various wrongs, fight delinquents, and generally act as all round read more

It could have been something decent, but instead Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi reeks of mediocrity. The art work and animation was actually pretty and appealing, but the terrible story and cast of characters makes this series a pretty little scab you want to tear off. The rag tag bunch of characters have a very minor development and role so it'll feel as if most, if not all, of the characters are a side note. Even the story leaves you hanging till the last episode. At the end of the series, you will ask yourself, "That's it? What the hell was I watching this for?". read more

Wow. Just wow is all I have to say to this anime. It's heartwarming and very funny. I thought the idea of a bank that helps people with problems is such an unique idea and that's what I loved most about it.

However there was many things missing that could have made it even better. For example, the allusion to the attempted rape of Ryouko could have been better shown if they didn't refer to just flashbacks. I had to look up what happened to Ryouko to understand what was going on between her and her ex-boyfriend. It's like they touched the surface of the important read more

Translating a book into a movie or show is always a challenge for developers. Why? Because taking all the information contained in a book and trying to cram it into a 2 hour movie is near impossible. So why do developers constantly try and do what seems impossible? Well it is my opinion that books have an uncanny ability to truly capture a readers attention with the use of two things, characters and story. The attention to detail and the ability many authors have to flesh out a character or grab a readers attention with interesting plot twists is what has kept books from dying read more

Ookami-san started to develop into something meaningful other than a plotless comedy over a few episodes. That development focused on romantic struggle of the main couple. Toradora development is pretty much the same, started of funny and increasingly dramatic over time.
The underdog fight for you. Underpowered protagonist help the heroine overcome her past by kicking some ass.
Ookami-san's past was kept safe along the series, until the protagonist beat up the bad guy and end the shows altogether.
In MM!, the hero simply beat the living hell out of the bad guy and help the heroine overcome it in a few chapters, leaving the rest of the season for comedy, or a new drama.
The tension of the shows however are kept lukewarm along the story, as both show has mixed both dramatical and funny contents in no formal pattern. It's pretty difficult to guess what you will have for each episode, maybe both.
Is that a good thing? Your call.
both anime have groups of people whom help others and as they do that they have more allies as they go on. many similarity occurs in both these anime, but SKET Dance have less romance

Fighting tsundere heroine with quite same character. Comedy, mostly girls on main roles and quite pacifistic but overprotective protagonist
Helping people is always a nice feeling and in both of these series, it's one of the themes. Medaka Box and Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi both have a main female protagonist who although is violent always cares for her friends and willing to help others.

Both series has the theme of a club that helps out others but along the way faces hardship and struggles.

Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and action later on in the series.

They're both funny, have an original (sort of) plot and great characters.
Also, Kiriki reminds me of Koizumi.
