As a fan of harem animes, I enjoy watching a man guy and several girls thrown into a adventure together. Not in the erotic kind of way, but rather in the drama of the story or simply the comedy that makes it worth the while to watch! Harem animes to me are one of my favorites, so I have the top 5 must-see harem animes (in my opinion). So here we go!
1. How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord
This is one is just a truly gem of all gems harem anime. It has been recently released and the first season is not completed yet. However, if you like to binge watch, do not let that discourage you. The anime begins with lots of humor, fantasy, and action. Diablo is a game otaku that is extremely socially awkward, and is magically summoned by two beautiful girls (Rem, a loli pantherian and Shera, a princess elf). Both girls meant to enslave Diablo but their magic backfired and resulted with both girls being enslaved to him instead. With both beautiful girls enslaved, Diablo decides to come to terms with them and sets to become an adventurer and set them free (because he is an otaku and does not know what to do with them). Long story short, both Rem and Shera bring upon home lots of secrets they hold and with them troubles, but Diable being the powerful Lord Demon has set his mind to help them both.
2. Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs
If you enjoy sexy girls, paranormal, and humor this is one you must not miss. Kogarashi is a psychic who has been troubled by spirits since he was a child, but as a young adult he has learn to exorcist these pesky entities that have made his life miserable. In search of a new home and a new start, he decides to rent a dirt cheap room at a boarding house, where it once was a flourishing hot spring inn. It matters not because he is an expert exorcist and he can get rid of the ghost that haunts the room. However, things turns spicy as he realizes the ghost is an attractive young girl that has not gone to heaven yet. However, she is harmless and both Kogarashi and Yuuna (the ghost) decide to be roomates and live life as normal as possible. But what is normal when the boarding house consist of women that are not your-average-ladies? This harem comedy is surely to make you laugh and enjoy fan services at the same time
3. High School DxD
High School DxD is your typical man fantasy, and that is just about as good as it gets. Issei is just your average perverted high school boy, and he does not have much luck with the ladies. That is until he gets his first girlfriend! A total knockout girl becomes his first girlfriend, what a lucky fellow! Unfortunately that relationship ended shortly after she kills him and leaves him to his last breath at a park. Poor guy. His luck turns around when a beautiful red-hair demoness, Rias, turns him into a demon. Shortly afterwards Issei belongs to Rias's demon household and becomes her 'pawn' (the battles within the anime assimilate that of a chess game). From here on out he finds himself in comical and perverted situations that results many of the other surrounding females to fall for him. What can I say, the fellow is quite the nice guy, once you get past his 'Oppai' obsession. His only goal in life is only to become the best Harem King there is, so check it out and you will surely be laughing your tail off with this super funny and action anime.
4. Konosuba: God's Blessing in This Wonderful World
This anime is bound to have you cracking up from episode one, season one until the last episode of season two. Within the first ten minutes of the anime, I was hooked, it was literally hilarious. The story follows a young boy, Kazuma, that is a hardcore retroverted otaku. While out getting the lastest game edition, he ends up getting himself killed. Soon he finds himself in what I would call life after death, and meets the goddess Aqua. She gives him the choice to go to heaven or to be sent a kingdom in another space/time where he has the opportunity to become an adventurer and kill the evil Demon King. Like a good otaku fellow that he is, he chooses to be sent to another world to make himself a legend and takes Aqua with him (he had the choice to have superpowers, extremely powerful weapons, or talent so he chose Aqua). Aqua is reluctant to go but is sent with him to the other world. Little did Kazume know that Aqua is actually a bit of blonde and not a very useful goddess. As they struggle to live life as a daily adventurers, they form a guild party with two other members. The story line follows the four friends that make incredibly hilarious mistakes and attempting to find themselves in this wonderful world.
5. Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor
Also like the previously mentioned animes, Akashic Records does contain humor and fan servicing. The story follows a young high school girl, Sistine, that is a devoted student wanting to be the best at using magic. She wants to follow into her grandfather's dying wish and to do so she must become the best of the best. However, that all goes down the hill when the students must be taught by a temporary teacher that is unfit to teach magic. At the beginning of the story, Sistine dislikes and feels the temp teacher is simply not competent enough for the job and threatens to get him fired. This is surprisingly good news for the teacher, Glenn, and wishes not to hold and the job. His laziness gets the best of him but he has fooled his students into believing that he is incompetent. That all changes when the school is under attack and Glenn must step in to protect the students and keep himself alive as well. This show will have you laughing. rooting, and enthrall you with government conspiracy (if that is your thing).
So there it is. The top 5 must see harem animes! Hopefully you will go and check out some of these shows and share the same appreciation for them as I did. As always, I will continue to watch and write more reviews for you guys.
