Yuji Sakai, a high school student, is told by strange girl that he died some time ago, and that he is a "Torch", a temporary replacement for erased humans. Torches take on the forms of those erased persons, but after a period of time, they will vanish from existence and the memories of the living. Unfazed by his apparent death, Yuji befriends this girl and names her "Shana" after her sword. Shana resolves to protect Yuji from the Denizens, who would use his special replenishing Torch to disrupt the balance of the world, and Yuji decides to join Shana in her fight.

Shakugan no Shana is a fantasy anime title with a touch of drama. It manages to retain its fantasy element while keeping a high level of teenage high school romance-related drama in terms of unrequited love between a few of the characters. Shakugan no Shana never leans towards one side completely. The fights between Shana and the Guze no Tomogara are consistent and never drawn out or cut short. There is rarely a lengthy time span separating the fights to make a viewer question if one is coming up. This allows room for episodes that develop the characters beyond the war at hand.

The plot outline for both manga is very much the same. The main character meets a girl/boy and their life is change forever, as the protagonist is thrown into a world of supernatural. Both have romance, loli, and action.
The title characters as well as their male counterparts and the relationship between them are almost identical between the two managas. Both have an even focus on action and character/relationship/backstory/plot development. And it's all in high school, of course. The only real difference is Shakugan no Shana has fantastical elements, while Hidan no Aria is more grounded in reality.

Haruhi Suzumiya is also a tsundere, though not as hard core. Art in novels/original character deisgns are by the same person. Both are also fantasy.
Well I love them both to death and the character designs are both by noizi ito. Also,they both were originally a light novel.
both start off with a guy who envies the power of the people around him and try to get by with training. Eventually both get ways to cancel the magic of their opponents. both have characters who intimidate the teachers and get popular through that. The female leads in both can be weird at times (jokes/melon bread). If you liked MxO or Shakugan no Shana you will most likely enjoy the other.
Both deal with a guy who meets a battle girl and the girl makes the guy part of the battle
