Nate here. Once upon a time, there was a wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, and a coward..who was a damn good sniper...
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi aka Ookami-san and the Seven Companions has a fairy tale-like basis around it. A narrator that starts off similar to that of "once upon a time" and ends off with a similar note. (But not with once upon a time.)
The main character is just as the title applys, about someone named Ookami-san and girl who has the toughness of a wolf. but in reality she is a softy. She also has a friend who's always wearing red, the red riding hood of the story named Ringo. Also the male protagonist of the anime named Ryoushi who actually has no real fairy tale relation except for maybe the knight in shining armor. Basically it's about Ryoushi falling in love with ookami-san, but Ookami-san is the kind of person who likes brave guys. And Ryoushi was the kind of guy who presented a cowardly gesture towards her. He decides to stay with her until he can prove he can be brave which also meant being a part of where she worked which was a place that helped out others and 7 people worked there as well along with Ringo. Each person with their own unique personality and such.
That's pretty much a Toradora parody right there, only missing Kitamura.
Ookami-san is unique in it's own way with the whole fairy tale attribute. Not to mention it's an anime who's loli star isn't a tsundere like most anime. Although the tsundere in here is Ookami-san, which isn't bad since the narrator points it out so obviously. They try to single out each supporting character into their own episode so that you can get a better picture of who they really are. Unfortunately they couldn't do it to a couple of them. Assuming you'd read the manga after the series ended or if there ever was a second season.
Overall this is one anime that I suggest you at least check out. It's not bad at all, you really should check it out if you like certain comedy genres that involve the male becoming the hero in unexpected ways. Also the VAs from this are mainly from the Index and Railgun series, so the acting isn't bad at all. I give it a 4.8 out of 5.
