7 Anime Like Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi

The anime I chose for the next “similar anime like” series is Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi (Okami-san and Her Seven Companions).

Originally, it’s a collection of light novels by Masashi Okita, with illustrations by Unaji, which later got adapted into anime series we all love.

The series centers around Ookami Ryouko, a spunky high school girl. She is tall, speaks in a masculine way and is very skilled in fighting. Her best friend, Akai Ringo, is quite the opposite – a small girl with a high pitched voice. They are the complete opposite except for the fact that they are both flat-chested.

Ookami, along with Ringo are members of a club called Otogi Bank. They spend their days assisting students with their problems in Otogi High School. In return, they ask for their assistance on a different problem at a later date.

The club claims to solve any problem and will go to any lengths to do so, often endangering its members in the process. Although the club members are all brave, the Otogi Bank has one major disadvantage – they lack male members. And thus, they decide to get another male for the upcoming dangerous missions.

The only problem? Morino Ryoushi, the freshly recruited male member has scopophobia – an anxiety disorder characterized by an extreme fear of being seen or stared at by others!

The following list contains 7 anime like Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi. Enjoy!

Both series are, first of all, done by the same studio – J.C. Staff. The cities are troubled with criminals, bullies, or in general, people seeking assistance to solve their problems. The main characters of both anime are very stubborn and tsundere girls capable of fighting opponents who are even double their size. They are getting assisted by a “partner”, who also becomes a romantic interest for them later.

Synopsis

The Butei holders are trained in various specialized fields and are permitted to possess various weapons and capture criminals. Kinji Tōyama is a student at Tokyo Butei High, a universal educational facility for the training of Butei. At this school, students with an aptitude for the work undertake special training in order to learn the path of the Butei. Shortly after Kinji decides to quit the Academy due to personal reasons, he is attacked by the Butei Killer, a criminal notorious for eliminating Butei—a case of the hunters becoming the hunted.

The elite Butei Assault prodigy Aria H. Kanzaki comes to his rescue and from that moment on, Kinji’s future as a Butei changes drastically.

The brains of the group is Kazuyoshi “Switch” Usui, a tech-savvy otaku who speaks through speech synthesis software, while the brawn is provided by Hime “Himeko” Onizuka, the hockey stick-wielding girl once known as “Onihime.” And last but not least, their leader is Yuusuke “Bossun” Fujisaki, whose latent ability is evoked by his goggles, allowing him to summon the awesome power of extraordinary concentration.

However, most of the school only know them as the club that handles odd jobs. Many of their days are spent in the clubroom slacking off, but when there is something to be done, they give their all to help others—usually in sincere, but unintentionally hilarious, ways. The SKET Brigade do all they can to provide support, kindness, encouragement, and troubleshooting to any students crazy enough to ask for their services.

Both anime are about overcoming their odd fears, as well as taking place mostly in a club setting (they share high-school setting). The male main characters of MM! and Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi are forcefully recruited into the club which claims to fix the problems of people. The female lead is a classic tsundere.

2. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun

  • Genres: Action, Sci-fi, Superpower
  • Episodes: 24

Why it’s similar

They were both made by J.C. Staff, so the similarity in art and animation is quite obvious. Misaka Mikoto (the girl on the picture) is very similar to OOkami-san. Apart from that, she is also tsundere and quite a character! The heroines are strong and fight for what they believe in.

Synopsis

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun is a spinoff series that focuses on the third strongest Level 5 esper, Misaka Mikoto, also called Tokiwadai’s Ace due to being at the top of Academy City.

1. Toradora!

  • Genres: Slice of Life, Comedy, Romance, School
  • Episodes: 25

Why it’s similar

Another creation of J.C. Staff, Toradora, is similar to Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi at first glance. Taiga, the female protagonist of Toradora looks strikingly similar to Ookami.  She looks like her younger sister. If that wasn’t enough, she is also a spunky girl with a flat chest (flat is justice, huh?) and an absolute tsundere! The main heroines are both compared to beasts – Taiga means tiger, Ookami means wolf. You probably get it by now.. they are just too much alike.

Both series are focused on the romance struggles with comedic situations and high-school setting.

Synopsis

Ryuuji Takasu is a gentle high school student with a love for housework; but in contrast to his kind nature, he has an intimidating face that often gets him labeled as a delinquent. On the other hand is Taiga Aisaka, a small, doll-like student, who is anything but a cute and fragile girl. Equipped with a wooden katana and feisty personality, Taiga is known throughout the school as the “Palmtop Tiger.”

One day, an embarrassing mistake causes the two students to cross paths. Ryuuji discovers that Taiga actually has a sweet side: she has a crush on the popular vice president, Yuusaku Kitamura, who happens to be his best friend. But things only get crazier when Ryuuji reveals that he has a crush on Minori Kushieda—Taiga’s best friend!
