In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit.

A teenage girl struggling with her interpersonal skills; a loyal man struggling with his intrapersonal skills. Inu x Boku SS tells of the tale involving these two troubled persons. Over time, it is inevitable that one will change depending on his/her surroundings. The influences that come from peers and others are undoubtedly strong. To be able to thrive in such environments, one must be able to filter these influences and only be changed by those which they feel will benefit them. In the end, it is always others that do the shaping; one cannot merely wish to be transformed and have it happen. Whether these read more

[b]Inu x Boku SS[/b]
To clarify i haven't read the manga and after i finished the anime i was reading comments that the story is a lot more different from the manga and i read a little about the manga and i agree is way too different, it has more of a tragic approach and the anime is more comedy, even in the serious parts something funny happens, but because i have just watched the anime and not the manga i liked the anime a lot, maybe because i laughed a lot and really enjoyed it.

The story is about a girl (Ririchiyo, who in fact is read more

When this anime first started airing recently I was unsure what it was going to be about. At the end of finishing this series, I still am unsure what this series qualify as. Inu x boku was supposedly a comedy story incorporating some supernatural and mysterious themes. However, it seems like the director changed their mind during the middle of the series.

The main plot follows around a young woman named Ririchiyo. Basically, she's a very delicate person, so delicate and shy that she can barely express herself. In fact, to the point where she almost expresses the opposite of what she means every time. Thus, read more

Does a very good job on sticking with the manga. Luckily the manga is ahead so for those like me who have read the manga way before the anime was released you know how things turn out and you can focus on the artwork and seeing your favorite characters in motion :3

Story: There really isn't a "story" per se. The manga is slowly picking up but as you can see from the first 11(?) episodes released currently it's mostly the main (what? 6-7 characters?) conversing with each other and little things between Ririchyo and Soushi. 7/10

Art: Very Nice. Nice style to it. 10/10

Anime: Kamisama Hajimemashita
Both have:
- A Highschool girl that moves to the house of the main lead.
- A main lead that is a kitsune (fox spirit) and had a darker personality in the past.
- Main lead serves the girl even though she has powers.
- Other youkai join them in the house as friends.
- Slow Romance and comedy.

Anime: Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
In his beautiful animation, in his style, both are romantic comedy with dramatic touches, have exciting moments, in his relationship between players or because Takumi and Soushi are very similar, and because the two players have strong character and they are good at everything. 
reportRecommended by Dixy
Anime: Kuroshitsuji
They are very similar -- a story of a demon serving a child from a rich family. Perhaps a bit darker with less humor, but the core is the same. 
reportRecommended by renchan
Anime: Otome Youkai Zakuro
The main female character has demon blood running through her reigns. Both Anime deal with being different from normal people and the designs are intricate.

Anime: RDG: Red Data Girl
Inu X Boku and RDG are similar in the fantasy element they both share. Both have a female protagonist with a male love interest also main character. Both shows are visually appealing and involve ancestry. 
reportRecommended by Nikoru-san
Anime: Dantalian no Shoka
Both Anime deal with Demons. The main female characters have similar personalities, the story line is told in slice of life and there is a similar feel to the actual story line, not to mention the art style is similar.
