The Top 10 Best Ecchi Anime Series
All of these series are unique in their approach to ecchi antics, and they offer something for everyone. Watch a series that appeals to your kink or watch an anime that explores naughty fantasies you haven't considered. Either way, enjoy all the stimulating scenarios that these ecchi series have to offer!
What Is Ecchi Anime?
Ecchi anime are suggestive and playfully sexual cartoons from Japan. The genre's name comes from the Japanese pronunciation of the letter "H," which is the first letter of the word “hentai,” meaning “pervert.” Based on the genre's name, one can get a general idea of what this genre is all about.
What Is the Difference Between Ecchi and Hentai?
When one engages with the ecchi anime genre, that means one should expect to see content that's inspired by intimate desires, stimulating scenarios, and pleasurable fantasies. The ecchi genre differs from the hentai genre in that it features softer and milder content, whereas hentai is more explicit and hardcore. Ecchi primarily showcases sensual innuendo and soft-core “H” antics to entertain the audience. Most of the time, this genre is paired with comedic or harem content, but it can also blend with other genres such as drama and romance.
Ecchi blends well with other genres because sexy scenarios can be created in a variety of ways. Naughty and exciting content is not limited to comedies or dramas. For example, the harem genre blends well with ecchi because a circumstance wherein a main character is surrounded or pursued by multiple characters of the opposite sex creates opportunities for exciting mishaps and encounters.
Where Can I Watch Ecchi Anime?
Finding places to watch ecchi anime is easy. One can watch ecchi anime videos on YouTube or via anime distribution sources like Crunchyroll or VIZ Media. Some ecchi anime may also be available to watch on video streaming services like Hulu or Netflix.
1. High School DxD
Why It's Great: This series is the greatest ecchi anime of them all! In a way, this one’s considered to be the best fan service anime ever made! High School DxD is full of titillating moments and fan service that forces viewers to drown into the depths of pleasure. It takes place at a high school where the student body is a mixture of normal humans, angels, and demons.
Plot: The anime focuses on Issei Hyoudou and it begins with the unluckiest day of Issei's life! Not only is he killed by a girl who turns out to be a fallen angel while on his first-ever date, but he is also brought back to life to be a servant for a demon! Now, Issei is required to become part of the Occult Research Club! Will Issei be able to live the life he wants while serving a sexy demon and interacting with angels? Issei’s only dream is to peep at lots of girls and form his own harem, but will he ever be able to realize his dream when he's forced to be a demon's servant? Demons, angels, humans, high school hijinks, and perverted Issei make High School DxD an alluring series to watch.
2. Yosuga no Sora
Why It's Great: It can’t get any more uncomfortable than this! And when I say “uncomfortable,” I mean "awkward," “twitchy,” and "incestuous." After all, Yosuga no Sora is just that! It’s almost hentai rather than ecchi, and it also utilizes forbidden love as one of its key elements. Nevertheless, it’s a totally unique, fan service anime with a mix of other genres and some serious, dramatic tones.
Plot: Haruka and Sora are a pair of siblings who have returned to the town where they spent their youth. On the day of their arrival, they both experience nothing out of the ordinary, but all that is just a pretense. As memories surface and feelings from the past emerge, new experiences arise! Feelings are everything, and soon these feelings shall transform into heightened emotional states that will help them form new memories and manifest their deepest desires.
Why It's Great: Is Kanokon borderline hentai? Yes! It is also wacky, perverted, and lascivious. Kanokon is the series you should watch if you’re eager to watch something that seems like it came straight from your imagination. Storywise, Kanokon is nothing but fan service, but that's okay because that's what ecchi enthusiasts are interested in!
Plot: Picture a scenario where lots of girls are chasing after you day-after-day and there's no hope of respite. Would you really want to live such a lifestyle? Well, for high school boy Kouta, a life like this is just about to begin for him! Many girls like him, but the most notable of them are the supernatural, animal-spirit girls, Chizuru and Nozomu! Much to Kouta’s annoyance, he has to deal with them while he navigates life as a high school student. Kouta puts up with their aggressive advances, touchy-feely behavior, and sexual innuendo, but he's deeply embarrassed by their displays of affection and the way they compete for his attention. The love-triangle aspect of this anime creates lots of opportunities for kinky and exciting scenarios.
4. To Love-Ru
Why It's Great: If you’re looking forward to laughing out loud while enveloping yourself in endless pleasure, then To Love-Ru is the series to watch! This series will make you laugh uncontrollably, while it also provides loads of fan service and perverse moments that will drown you in pleasure.
Plot: Rito Yuuki is your average high school boy who’s having a hard time confessing his romantic feelings to a girl named Haruna Sairenji. At first, Haruna was the only girl he had to worry about, but then another girl named Lala joins the fray! She’s an alien from the planet Deviluke, and she seemingly appeared out of nowhere! Due to some warped, yet funny twists of fate, Rito now has to marry Lala and fend off her jealous alien suitors while trying to smooth things over with Haruna.
As if the premise isn't kinky enough, Lala initially meets Rito by magically appearing (stark naked) while he's taking a bath—now that's an ecchi introduction! As the story progresses, Rito struggles to decide whether or not he prefers Lala or Haruna, and his decision is further complicated by Lala's younger sister Momo, who also develops romantic feelings for Rito, and schemes to help Rito acquire a harem so she can be part of it. The naughty adventures abound in To Love-Ru!
5. Seitokai Yakuindomo
Why It's Great: Everyone’s talking about sex! All people, young, old, boys, girls—everyone’s a sensual being! All people are curious about and interested in things concerning sensuality and sexuality. And with Seitokai Yakuindomo, that’s exactly what you’ll get—all in a comical and perky school setting!
Plot: On his first day in Ousai Academy, which is a school for girls that just recently opened its doors to boys, Tsuda Takatoshi experiences culture shock for the first time in his life! Everywhere he goes or sets his sights, he sees nothing but girls! Girls here, girls there—the school is so full of girls that it seems like he’s the only boy around! And what makes matters worse is that he can’t relate to any of them at all! Girl talk, girl fluff, and even raunchy girl conversations are challenging for him to understand. Tsuda Takatoshi is definitely in a very awkward situation and setting. Only time will tell whether or not Tsuda Takatoshi will adapt to his new surroundings, and he will eventually learn that everyone's just the same—eternally curious and passionately interested.
6. Prison School
Why It's Great: Prison School is a fan service anime that’s seriously funny in an awkward way! Not only will you find enjoyment in laughing out loud at all the perverted scenes and awkward moments, you’ll also cry tears of endless pleasure!
Plot: Hachimitsu Private Academy is an all-girls-school located on the outskirts of Tokyo and for the first time in history, the school is going to let boys enroll! On the first day of implementation of the new rule, only five boys make the cut! Will they survive attending a school that is brimming with girls? Will the girls even accept them? Just wait until the five boys make contact with the school’s elite and super-strict student council! Whether they experience bliss or despair, the boys shall soon realize what kind of life lies ahead of them at Hachimitsu Private Academy.
Why It's Great: What if the world banned all forms of dirty talk, vulgar acts, perverted jokes, and naughty sensations? That would be crazy, right? Would it all be for the best or would it lead to ignorance and mayhem? Are you interested in what that kind of world has to offer? Watch Shimoneta to find out!
Plot: In an alternate version of Japan, strict and eccentric morality laws have been implemented. Citizens are closely monitored to ensure that they remain chaste for life! Dirty talk, vulgar acts, perverse jokes, and naughty sensations are all considered to be unnecessary and so they are all strictly prohibited. This is the world of Shimoneta. It's a boring world where the concept of dirty jokes don't exist! Fortunately, the oppressive laws have some loopholes, and SOX—an organization that's hellbent on spreading dirty jokes—is determined to reveal the flaws of adhering to such unconventional laws.
Blue Snow is the leader of SOX and she has (somewhat forcefully) recruited Tanukichi Okuma to help accomplish SOX's dirty mission. Reforming the country and abolishing the ridiculous laws are a huge endeavor to accomplish, will SOX ever succeed?
8. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Everyday Life with Monster Girls)
Why It's Great: Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou is an excellent example of a creative and original ecchi series. This series takes raunchiness to new and exciting levels. Its premise is that if monsters exist, then so do monster girls! And for better or for worse, these monster girls want to date humans! Lamias, centaur-women, harpies, and cat girls are just some of the voluptuous monsters in this anime. Through the “Interspecies Cultural Exchange Act,” monster girls are free to dwell among humans in a manner that is similar to that of exchange students.
Plot: Kurusu Kimito is an unofficial participant in the cultural exchange. After he becomes the unexpected caretaker of a lamia named Miia, his life changes abruptly! Not only does he have to take care of the monster girl, he also needs to deal with all of her raging hormones and flirtations. And to make matters crazier, a few more monster girls join the fray and begin competing for Kurusu Kimito's affection. As the various types of monsters compete and go in and out of heat, Kurusu struggles with the fact that he'll have to marry one of the monsters at some point. This circumstance provides many opportunities for exciting ecchi encounters.
9. Shinmai Maou no Testament (The Testament of Sister New Devil)
Why It's Great: Shinmai Maou no Testament is a great ecchi series that also includes a fantastic combination of harem, comedy, and action elements! Just be prepared to see a lot of scenes that border on soft-core “H.”
Plot: The series focuses on Basara Toujo, who is about to experience the greatest twist of his life! Basara's father is getting remarried and he is about to move abroad for employment. In addition to moving away and getting remarried, his father also makes Basara live with two new step-sisters! And as if that wasn’t enough, the two sisters are really not what they seem! Actually, everyone in the series is not what they seem to be! The sisters are part of a demon clan and Basara is surprisingly revealed to be part of a hero clan that naturally opposes his step-sisters' clan. Talk about whack! And so, Basara must live with his two new step-sisters and protect them both from more powerful demons while preventing his step-sisters from using their demon powers against him. Basara and his new step-siblings face countless awkward moments and troublesome ecchi hijinks throughout the series. Shinmai Maou no Testament features lots of risqué scenes and scenarios. The show is far from subtle in its efforts to excite fans, so be prepared to be excited!
10. Shokugeki no Soma (Food Wars)
Why It's Great: As if regular fan service anime shows aren’t enough, Shokugeki no Souma brings the ecchi genre up to a whole new level! Why? It’s because this show combines all the stuff and fluff that's typical of the ecchi genre with the saliva-inducing prospect of food. Yes, you heard that right! The combination of fan service and food causes titillating food-gasms.
Plot: The series follows Yukihira Souma, who has spent his life cooking and waiting to inherit his father’s restaurant. As Yukihira finishes high school, his father decides to close his restaurant to pursue professional opportunities to cook abroad, and he goads Yukihira to enter Tootsuki Culinary Academy, which is a prestigious cooking school where only a very small percentage of the master chef wannabes graduate. Given his prodigious cooking prowess, fans are left to wonder whether or not Yukihira Souma is up to the challenges his new school will present.
Shokugeki no Soma is well-known for its vivid portrayal of food-gasms. Food-gasms occur when something is so delicious that it causes a culinary climax of flavor and pleasure. Because the culinary students in the series are passionate about the cuisines they prepare, they are also passionate about flavors and a person's reaction to well-prepared food. As a result, the food-gasm scenes are naughty enough to solidify Food Wars' ecchi status.

After watching high school dxd i would like to become a demon
Rocka on October 05, 2019:
I would much rather suggest the manga of to love the rather than the anime series. The manga actually follows a much more slice of life theme and is overall hysterical while the anime tries to change itself and become detached from the anime in an attempt to fit pop culture references and comedy rather than slice of life.
Carmella Nichols on August 11, 2019:
Sorcerer Hunters should have been on this list and Ikki Tousen
