go to this link-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_honorifics it explains how to properly use japanese honorifics.
and if the anime you're talking about is "Otome wa Baku ni Koishiteru" it means "The Maidens are Falling in Love with Me"
Hope this helps!

The honorifics are very respect-oriented. That wiki page should give you more than enough of the details on each one.

BTW it's Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru
