A reluctant high school girl, pushed into martial arts by her grandfather, with the whole thing followed by an aspiring sports reporter. That describes both of these series, leading me to believe that Yawara inspired Fighting Beauty Wulong to some extent. Of course, Fighting Beauty Wulong has a lot more fanserivce and focuses more on the flashy world of professional wrestling and mixed martial arts, as opposed to the Olympics, but it also has some great characters just like Yawara.
These two series, both by the same author, definetly share some similar themes and character designs. Ai Yori Aoshi is a love story wrapped in a harem comedy, and so far Umi no Misaki is a supernatural(?) mystery story wrapped in a harem comedy, both with a little tasteful fan-service.
Two very funny "slice of life" comedies about cute girls doing cute things.
To me, the obvious recomendation is the anime KARIN, also about a high school boy and a vampire girl. While KARIN for the most part lacks the "fighting" elements of ROSARIO+VAMPIRE, the romantic comedy elements of a supernatural "odd-couple" remain.

These two manga series have a very similar basic story, of a single young man living in a boarding house full of girls. Love Hina leans more toward the comedy of the situation, while Ai Yori Aoshi leans more towards the romantic aspects.
Kishin Taisen Gigantic Formula and Eureka Seven have a similar feeling to me. An average boy, a mysterious girl, and lot of secrets revolving around strange mecha.
