Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi

Ookami Ryouko is not what one would call a typical high school girl. She is rather tall, speaks in a traditionally male manner (you could say “tough”), and is proficient at fighting. Not what one expects when they think of a 1st year high school isn’t it? Along with her best friend, Akai Ringo, they are both 1st year members of the Otogi Bank, a rather interesting club at Otogi High School that operates on loaning favors to students. Essentially, Otogi Bank accepts requests for help from students in return for assistance on a different problem at a later date. Quite an intriguing idea for a club isn’t it? Since the Otogi Bank prides itself on solving any problem and will go to great length to do so, the members will often find themselves in very dangerous situations. It just so happens that the Otogi Bank finds that this year there primarily females in the club and has decided that a new male member should be recruited. It also happens that Morino Ryoushi, a 1st year with a case of scopophobia (fear of being looked at), who had just confessed his love for and to Ryouko is recruited into the club. And thus hilarity ensues.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi is a comedy, and a delightful one at that. The story revolves around Ryouko and Ryoushi as they engage in hilarious hi-jinks for Otogi Bank’s clients and gradually get to know each other more and become closer. As you follow the steady growth in trust and feelings for each other from episode to episode you also find yourself on the edge of your seat awaiting the next comical course of action the members of Otogi Bank decide to take to fulfill their client’s requests.

All in all, I was exceedingly entertained by this anime. Its not a particularly well-known show but I feel like every anime-lover should definately try it. If you’re looking for a casual romantic comedy to fill some time with smiles then you should consider Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi.

And lets all hope they end up making a 2nd season of it!
