These two anime are completely different in plot but in characters you can definitely see a similarity... The main characters Ryuji and Taiga have a very interesting relationship.. one of a master and her dog (like Louise and Saito)...
In both anime the characters share a close relationship in which the chibi fearsome female dominates the male...very interesting to watch..
(both females have the same voice actor as well..)

Actually, they're similar only for the first few episodes, due to the similarities between Louse and Taiga and the way they deal with their soon-to-be love interests. Then, as the stories go on, Toradora characters develop while ZnT's seem stuck in the optimal situation for fanservice and cheap laughs, with no further development from that point onwards, and even some derailment in characters like Siesta.

Basically, Toradora is Zero no Tsukaima but traditional Japanese school anime style. Same voice actor for protagonist, pretty much same plot. However Toradora is a lot less ecchi based than Zero.

Taiga is Louise (Or Shana, if you will) with a different hair color. While I have only seen the first episode of Toradora so far, I suspect the plot will develop similarly.

They are both funny, but in general it'ss about girls in love with some guys they mistreat.

Tsundere loli with the same voice and complex. Beautiful harem, but in Toradora they have smaller breasts ;P

both has romance and both the girl who treat the guy like a dog

The realationship between the two main leads are very similar. A somewhat spoiled and bad tempered female and a really nice guy who is often abused by her. Although ZnT is in another world and fantasy, the main story and atmosphere are like each other.

Not only are they made by the same people but if you were to watch one of these and then the other, you would swear that it's the same character but with different hair color. Taiga = Luise

Both have the characteristic master-slave sort of relationship. Taiga and Louise are also voiced by the same seiyuu (Japanese voice actor) so you may notice a similarity in the way that they talk. Ryuuji and Saito are also pretty similar because they are accepting of the position that they are put into. The way the relationship develops between the main characters also hold importance as each of the series progresses.

Zero is a fantasy setting where as Toradora is based in more of a real life setting. The romance progresses more quickly in Zero as well. Apart from those differences they are near carbon copies. If you like one you will almost certainly like the other.

They are both about two totally different persons that for some reason have to live together, the female character is almost the same, voilent and rude with few friends, but really just wanting to have some that care for them, they even look the same and it is the same actress that have the voice. Zero no Tsukaima is a little more perverted and harem like, still they are both great love stories with characters that develop during the show.

Louise and Taiga don't just share the same voice actor, which wasn't chosen without reason. The voice suits their enthusiasm and powerful character. Both girls treat they (boy) pal as servants and play with them, as if they were dogs. But in both animes, the relationship starts to grow and the girl realizes that she starts to get to like her servant. Though Zero no Tsukaima has got more "ecchi" in it - but not in a extreme art - , and deal with two total different siuations (and in Toradora the boy is more likeable) they both run out the same :)

The main female characters of the anime Louise (Zero no Tsukaima) and Taiga (Toradora!) are voiced by the same person, Kugimiya Rie. Of course, they are both long-haired tsundere who often physically hurt the male characters with whom they are close to and eventually fall in love with.

All the characters are funny, the heroin is a little... strong XD (she have the voice of Louise) and it's romantic... ^^

Loli-tsuderes voiced by Rie Kugimiya are verbally abusive to their male sidekick, but put up with him anyway.
report Recommended by tplusent
both the main girl chars have the same seiyu, and are both of the tsundere type... ok, there're so many others similarities... even the main girls look similar!! (just with different colour hair!)...

difference is that toradora is set in the real world and zero no tsukaima's set in another world (one with none other than... care to take a guess? ... MAGIC!...).

Louise = Taiga (chibi tsundere dominating occasionally violent female, similar clothes, same voice actor, calls male lead 'dog', etc.)
Oh, and Saito = Ryuuji of course.

Both are romances and comedies, main characters' seiyuu is the same, and aparition is similar, too.

We all have probably seen that the main voice actors of the two of these shows are identical, but that shouldn't deter you from this. Both shows are amazing, and their style is different although their flow is similar. Turning to Toradora! for a bit, first of all, the Soundtrack for this anime is mind-blowing. I listen to it even now. I am on my second trip through the show and I've gotta say, it really is better a second time. The first time I went through, I learned quickly how drama controls this show. With comedy as the right-hand man. And romance as the   read more

Similar characters (Master and "dog"[tsukaima]). Rie Kugimiya is dubbing main female in both series.

Many times i throught i was watching Louise (Zero no Tsukaima) instead of Taiga (Toradora) . They yell the same thing like "aho no inu" or "baka! baka! baka!" or "urusai! urusai! urusai!" (this one i remembered Shana from Shakugan no Shana LOL). Anyways very good n comic anime. Strongly recommend!

Basically both female leads is a tsundere type character that treats the male lead like a servant. Except one side is a high school anime and the other is a fantasy type anime. Both animes are equally enjoyable and so are the characters. The main females of both animes are also voiced by the same voice actress as well.

The dynamics between the characters are essentially the same going from a master/servant relationship to something much more. The male lead also makes a habit out of saving and protecting the female lead. Also, it is just as funny. And oh yeah, did I mention that Taiga and Louise have the same voice actress?
report Recommended by Tsundere-lover
Both shows star a tsundere female protagonist, although to a much larger extent in Zero no Tsukaima. Although they don't share similar themes, they have a similar comedy style. If you liked Toradora, you might want to think about picking up Zero no Tsukaima..

The relantionship between two main characters is dog-master, besides they have quite similar personalities and there is something similar in the ending.
report Recommended by senako
Both with Tsundere characters in the forms of Taiga and Louise and the rom com elements in them make them very alike and would fill a gap left behind after finishing Toradora!
report Recommended by nemesysgfx
Taiga and Louise are very similar. I think they're dubbed by the same person as well. They both call their boys "dog" and overall I found a lot of similarities. The difference is that Zero no Tsukaima is supernatural, action, and harem while Toradora is slice-of-life. Even so, they are both very similar. I think that anyone who has watched Toradora would enjoy Zero no Tsukaima as well. Same goes the other way around.

Both female main characters are tsunderes and both have feelings for the male main character they are teaming up with.
Usually takes place in school, and both main characters stay together or stay close to each other.
Both are teaming up together to get something.

Both contain a tsundere female protagonist totally in love with the male lead but don't express their feelings.

Both female leads can be considered queens in terms of the archetype and a hard definition of what a "Tsundere" is.

Both have a small main character that are well...Tsudere overload basically
Cute artstyle

report Recommended by NekoKotoura-San
Both of these Anime are about a girl that is living their normal life and suddenly a random guy just appears. Both of the guys help the girls out with their every day life, the difference here is that one is forced to do it and one does it willingly. Eventually they both end up falling for each other which was obviously going to happen, but they are in many sticky situations.
report Recommended by Menzo-
Both series revolve around a strong tsundere girl and an ordinary guy. In both series, the two characters are thrown together unexpectedly, but the girl quickly asserts her authority over the boy, treating him as her dog / slave.

In both series, the tsundere female becomes angry due to jealousy and insecurity. She expresses herself by forcefully asserting herself as the boy's master, yelling at him, and physically abusing him. In Toradora, Taiga at least kicks him, slaps him, and punches him. She treats him alternately as a dog or a slave. She expects him to cook and do laundry for her whenever she   read more

The two series feature a rather small female lead who acts rather harshly to the one they love, commonly known as tsundere. The two heroines are also very self-conscious about the size of their breasts and gets angry at anyone who makes a comment about them. The male leads are also very similar as they both tend to get bossed around by the female lead quite a lot.

This is where the similarities differ as Toradora has a modern-day school setting with no magical abilities, while Zero no Tsukaima (Familiar of Zero) is the opposite.

Still if you enjoy small tsundere main   read more

- Female and male lead characters share a similar type of interaction, the female being highly dominent and somewhat spoiled - the male being a pure-hearted nice guy who is treated badly, yet in the hearts of both female leads, they do have a deeper affection for their respective "dog". Both series evolve around this element, yet in different interpretations.
- Hence, If you like the tension between the characters of one series, you may just love to see this constellation in a different setting and this is the chance! While Zero no Tsukaima has an all-fantasy setting with more exaggeration, action and male-lead-torture, Toradora!   read more

First of all, sorry for bad english.
The female main characters (Louise and Taiga) on both animes have almost the same personality, and the male characters (Saito and Ryuuji) are treated like a dog on both series. While Toradora! takes place on the real world, ZnT takes place on a magical world, so if you don't like slice of life series, Toradora! is not for you.
Now here is the comparison:
Toradora!
More plot than ZnT
More character development than ZnT
More dramatic moments than ZnT
Better characters than ZnT
Better animation than ZnT
Better sound than ZnT

More fanservice than   read more

In the sub they have the same voice actress. Both main love interest are tsunderes. Story wise isn't similar but if you enjoy either of them. You will like them vice versa.
