But one day, as fate moves on the thread, an alien girl named Lala appears out of nowhere only to be save by Rito from a group of pursuers. While on the chase, Rito unknowingly gives Lala the sign of the willingness of marrying someone in her home-planet's customs.

Now, Rito is engaged with Lala much to his surprise! This misunderstanding sure won't be as easy to resolve as it is because Lala is an heir to her home-planet's throne and her father wants to marry her off to someone as soon as possible.

Who said that game addicts can't be uber-cool? Especially when you're someone who can conquer every game with ease (inclding dating games where you try to conquer all the girls in the game) like Keima Katsuragi, why wouldn't you want to be a god in your own world?

Well, as much to Keima's amazing luck (or perhaps it could also be unlucky streak), he is scouted by a demon gal to utilize his godly-gaming-skills to conquer girls in real life just like how he does it in the dating games. There's a reason behind it though - the girls have been possessed by evil ghosts, and the only way to shun those beings is to reach the girls' hearts and fill the voids that are inside.

Play along with Keima's hijinks as he sets forth to drive evil ghosts out of the hearts of many girls as he tries his best to conquer them just like in his games. If he can be a God in the gaming world, then why not apply it in the real world! Such is the noble task forced upon Keima by a Shinigami whose intentions are more fun than serious.

What awaits Keima in his new endeavor? Will he fare well as much as he does in his dating games? One way to find out - watch him on his wacky conquest and see it through its highs and lows. Buckle up now and speed up to The World God Only Knows!

Follow Ikuto as he adjusts his life to the island's customs as he bears with being the only guy in the island full of girls. With a harem as big as an island, much excitement awaits!

5. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Welcome to Fumizuki Academy - a school where classes are divided into particular ranks and class tiers depending on the students' grades and intellectual capabilities. It's not the usual school system though! The students battles it out for the school ranks and class privileges through the summoning battles where they use their brain power, tactics, and...yeah...their own summoned beasts to win. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu (which translates to Idiots, Tests, and Summoned Beings) dishes it out for a truly remarkable and oftentimes comical school life.

Meet Akihisa Yoshii, the biggest idiot of the school! Though he is pretty contented with belonging to Class F (the lowest rank in school), he along with his classmates will stop at nothing just to redeem themselves and rise-up in the ranks. Especially when a new girl classmate named Himeji Mizuki, a genius who deserves to be in Class A, accidentally gets listed into Class F - the whole class will do their best to fight to the top and give her the classroom privileges that she truly deserves.

Enlist yourself now into the rolls of Fumizaki Academy as you go through the exhilarating summoning battles sprinkled with all sorts of Idiots, Tests, and Summoned Beings. If only schools were like this, I would never want to cut school again!

Somewhere in Japan, there exists a hill where a statue of a stony cat is hailed upon. Rumors says that the stony cat can take anything you don't like about yourself (things such as attitude, skills, habits, and personality) from you and give it to someone who needs it. And such is the legend of the stony cat from the anime - Hentai Ouji To Warawanai Neko.

Yokodera Youto is a true-blue lech, but no one seems to believe so, as he can't seem to express himself freely because of his innocent and misunderstood facade. With him not being able to freely express his worldly desires, he often gets misunderstood and get caught up doing other things which are not his priorities. And so, once he heard about the rumors about the Stony Cat, he immediately sets to make it take his "misunderstood facade" away from him.

Will Youto be able to get the Stony Cat take away his facade? Will he be able to accept the results of his actions and live up to his wish? Well, watch him as he lives on after his wish as - The Hentai Prince!

No one knows for sure, but that human eventually became - the Familiar of Zero (Zero no Tsukaima).

With a zero-mage girl and a summoned commoner boy working in the laughable situation, wacky moments and bits of romance are sure to be expected!

      Hahahaha. I think you love this genre because it's extremely funny in all sense. Or maybe you also like abit of ecchi or harem on the side. Either way, these titles never fails to bring up the laughs and funny moments. Thank you for visiting as always my friend! XD

      Oh god, this genre is a HUGE guilty pleasure of mine. I don't know why as the idea really doesn't appeal to me, yet I love watching these shows. The World God Only Knows is the best on this list, it's just such a great idea and I love how they set it up so that every romance arc can be pursued and completed (which has always been a bit of a problem with animes like this, especially if the chosen romance doesn't interest you). Plus it's just funny. Another great list mate :)
