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...

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 work they did for people, so for me was good.

Art & Sound
Both were like you think will be, the thing is that in some parts is colorful and the landscape was good, the characters were really well drawned, just like read more

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

A high school rom-dram-com with potential ends up squandering most of it because of some all-too-common faults in the anime industry. I seem to be on a streak of reviewing anime that I think blew their chance, but here's why Ookami-San and Her Seven Companions missed its shot.


Sticking several fairy tale characters from various stories together is by no means an original premise ('Fables' comes to mind) but it can still be enjoyable to watch old characters in new ways. The story is mostly episodic, following the staff of the Otogi 'Favors' Bank from case to case as they work to sort out various problems 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

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: Otome Youkai Zakuro
Both 12 episodes in length, Ookami-san and Otome Youkai Zakuro are colorful, visually appealing series that are simple to watch and not think too hard about. The main male character of each is easily frightened but will rise to the occasion when he needs to be brave, soon catching the attention of his respective spunky-yet-shy female lead. The comedic aspects of both shows rely on these distinct, somewhat cliched characterizations that nonetheless inspire chuckles.

The cultural references that define them are also comparable; Ookami-san centers around fairy tales, while Otome Youkai Zakuro features Japanese spirits.
