Okami-San and Her Seven Companions

Ookami Ryouko is a spunky and, by some accounts, rather manly high school girl. She is tall, speaks in a traditionally masculine way, and is very proficient in fighting. Ookami-San’s best friend is the small and high-pitched voice, Akai Ringo.

Incidentally, the two are rather flat-chested. A fact narrator voiced by Ryuuguu Otohime of railgun fame is all too eager to point out. Otohime and Ringo are members of the Otogi Bank, a club in Otogi high school. That assists students with their problems in return for their help on a different problem later.

Thus the Otogi Bank is effectively a loan Institute for problems where you can take out a loan for a solved problem. But you have to repay it sooner or later. The Otogi Bank can solve any problem and will go to any lengths to do so. Often leading the members to danger.

Since most of the club members are female, another male is needed for the more dangerous assignments. Thus the fear of being looked at by Morino Ryoushi is inducted as a member right after he confesses his love for Ookami.
