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

The fact that this is a wasted potential is a shame, this could have been greater than what ended to be.

The story started very good i was really interested to follow it but then just started to be more of a comedy/parody without the romance that at some point you think will happen, never happens, and that was annoying, it was really interesting almost every job they did for people, so for me was good.

Both were like you think will be, good character design and colorful landscape. The sound was good, it was really enjoyable, the VA was good.

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

There’s nothing I love better then ranting about bad anime in the afternoon. Which is why I’m here to talk about Ookami-san to Shinchinin no Nakamatachi, such a long title.

Anyway, this show is like having a glass of milk after having it sit on your counter for about a whole night after your house party. All your drunken friends and standing around it and they want you to drink it and you do after all the peer pressure. At first, you’re thinking it’s a bad idea, and after listening to your friends you think that this is a chance to redeem your personless self. So read more

Anime: Toradora!
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.

Anime: MM!
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  read more

Anime: Toaru Kagaku no Railgun
Fighting tsundere heroine with quite same character. Comedy, mostly girls on main roles and quite pacifistic but overprotective protagonist

Anime: Zero no Tsukaima
The same character dynamics appear in both series, but they are both set in complete different settings and in the end Zero no Tsukaima is far superior to Ookami-san...

Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
They're both funny, have an original (sort of) plot and great characters.
Also, Kiriki reminds me of Koizumi.
