Top 10 Best Reverse Harem Anime

Top 10 Best Reverse Harem Anime

In anime, a traditional harem features a male main character having multiple female characters around him (often head-over-heels for him). A reverse harem features a female main character surrounded by multiple male characters. Although this genre is not as popular as the regular HRM genre and only has a few number of titles, it still has its own charm and redeeming qualities that actually makes it very fascinating.

That being said, I’ve tried my best to collect the top 10 best reverse harem anime that are worth the effort to watch. I actually performed a search on the most popular ones, watched them, and noted how entertaining and fascinating they were to me. And this was the result! Hover your eyes through the list, give the series a go, and share what you’ve watched. If you’ve got more titles that you’d want to share to the world, then feel free to add them in the comments.

By the way, if you want to see a list for regular HRM series, you can check out the top 10 best harem anime.

What Are the Best Reverse Harem Anime TV Series?

  1. Ouran High School Host Club
  2. Fruits Basket
  3. Akatsuki no Yona
  4. Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss)
  5. Kamigami no Asobi
  6. Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower)
  7. Fushigi Yuugi
  8. Hakuouki
  9. Uta no Prince-sama
  10. Amnesia
Amnesia

Amnesia

10. Amnesia

If all you want is some mindless reverse HRM anime show, then you’ve got it! Amnesia perfectly fits the bill. The art and visuals are top-notch, which in turn makes the guys seem more realistic and attractive. Yes, the attractive guys are the main draw here because that’s one of the main traits of this genre. As for the story and character development, they’re both borderline mediocre, so I wouldn’t expect much if I were you.

Amnesia follows the story of a young woman who awakes one day to discover that all her memories are gone. She doesn’t remember anything—not her life, her past, or even her own name! The only clues she has to her memories and her past life is a cellphone with unknown numbers and a mysterious young boy named Orion who only she can see.

Uta no Prince-sama

Uta no Prince-sama

9. Uta no Prince-sama

Next comes a show that’s made of rainbows and cupcakes…Uta no Prince-sama! This series is very light-hearted, sweet, and comedic. Its main purpose is to make people smile and maybe make them sing along to the tunes in the show as well. The most important thing in this show is all the good-looking guys, which I’m sure many gals will like!

In a performance arts school where everyone is a potential idol, Haruka is working to reach her dreams and be able to become a composer that is good enough to write a masterpiece song and dedicate it to her own idol. It’s not so easy though! Having no formal training at all and not even being able to read music sheets, Haruka has to strive real hard with an unwavering will in order to pursue what her heart truly wants.

Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan

Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan

8. Hakuouki

Amongst the many reverse HRM anime series out there, Hakuouki is one of the rare ones with actual depth when it comes to the story. Pacing along with other genres such as action, historical, mystery, and supernatural, you’ll find this show pretty amusing and exciting. The male characters aren’t just all about the looks. There is a strong focus on their personalities and attitudes, which makes this series all the more interesting.

Having a doctor as a father who’s involved in some sketchy phenomena surrounding a mysterious drug, Chizuru Yukimura worries that she’ll inevitably lose her father soon enough. And so, since it’s been a while since she had contact with her father who went to Kyoto, she makes the decision of looking for him there. On the way, Chizuru discovers an oni and is attacked. Fortunately, she is saved by the Shinsengumi and takes her along with them. As fate has it, both Chizuru and the Shinsengumi are looking for the same person—the doctor who has answers for the the oni drug.

Fushigi Yuugi

Fushigi Yuugi

7. Fushigi Yuugi

Just so you know, Fushigi Yuugi is a pretty old anime (a classic anime from the 90s). But being ancient doesn’t mean it is lower in quality. Actually, it’s one of the best reverse HRM of its time—perhaps even a pioneer of the genre! And that’s why Fushigi Yuugi is here! Not only is its story very well done and engaging, the show is successful in establishing a long-lasting connection with viewers. As a matter of fact, even today, Fushigi Yuugi still oozes with nostalgia. It easily pops into the mind of many people whenever they hear about the genre of reverse HRM in general.

It was a usual visit to the national library for Miaka and Yui until a strange phenomenon happened! From a strange story book that depicted ancient China, a portal appeared to suck both Miaka and Yui in. In a world resembling ancient China, Miaka and Yui take on the roles of priestesses who are able to summon their respective gods and ask for wishes once they gather their eight celestial warriors. Luckily for Miaka, she got into the hands of good people. As for Yui, misfortunes fell upon her one-by-one, causing her to inevitably loathe her best friend.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

6. Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower)

HRM is usually based on comedy while reverse HRM is usually based on romance and shoujo. So, as one of the few comedy shows in the reverse HRM genre, I present to you Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge! It’s funny and it’s great! Despite the odd-looking characters (which might seem like an anomaly to some), the entertainment is strong with this one. This anime actually has a strong story, which is perfect for casual viewing.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, also known as The Wallflower, is an anime about four good-looking boys (Ranmaru, Kyouhei, Yukinojo, and Takenaga) tasked to reform Sunako into a lady. As the situation goes, Sunako is an aloof girl who’s slowly becoming the spitting image of Sadako because of her love for horror movies and dark stuff. Now, since Ranmaru, Kyouhei, Yukinojo, and Takenaga are desperate for a free cozy place to live in, they assume the daunting task of averting Sunako from her dark lifestyle and turn her into a proper and sophisticated lady.

Kamigami no Asobi

Kamigami no Asobi

5. Kamigami no Asobi

As expected from another reverse HRM anime, Kamigami no Asobi is chock full of attractive characters! And that’s not all—this show is quite good storywise and amusing overall as well. The plot of this series thickens as the viewer goes through it episode by episode. By the end of it all (or perhaps even at the start), fans won’t be able to resist wishing that the characters from this anime were actually real and would just come to reality.

When high school girl Yui Kusanagi gets chosen by Zeus (god and headmaster of Forbidden Academy) to teach the values of humans and love to the other young gods, she is compelled to take on the duty or else she’ll never get to leave the place. Her task is simple. She must teach the young gods about love and the human ways and get them to graduate from Forbidden Academy. The young gods’ graduation means her graduation from the place as well.

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Kamisama Hajimemashita

4. Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss)

Lovely and surreal—that’s how I would describe Kamisama Hajimemashita. Believe it or not, it’s one of the few reverse HRM anime that actually has romance in it that would make you want to squee! And yeah, being in the genre in question, it does have its share of characters that are appropriate for it, but what makes this series good is the lovely romance. The bond between Nanami and Tomoe is pretty amusing and refreshing to watch. It’s like the show’s trying to keep you glued to the screen with how good the character relations are! But most of all, Kamisama Hajimemashita is as charming than any reverse HRM could get.

After becoming totally homeless and poor due to her father’s bad gambling habits, Momozono Nanami ventures out to fend for herself in the cruel outside world. Luckily, she meets and saves a mysterious man from a dog and the man in turn offers her his home. Unknown to Nanami, the home of the man is actually a shrine and the man is actually a god! So then, the god gives her his position and status as local deity where she now has to live as both a human school girl and the spiritual god of the shrine.

Akatsuki no Yona

Akatsuki no Yona

3. Akatsuki no Yona

For an anime in the reverse HRM genre, I can assure you that Akatsuki no Yona spectacularly stands out among most of the others. Everything is well-developed in this one—the story, the characters, the animation, the sound, the plot progression, you name it! There’s romance, there’s a bit of comedy, and there’s even action! Words alone wouldn’t be able to describe the hype, so watch this anime. You'll really be in for a surprise!

Princess Yona has lived all her life in luxury and goodwill in her kingdom so far. She has everything she has ever wanted and needed, and a childhood friend who she always had a crush on. One fateful day, on her 16th birthday, everything changes drastically for the worse. The childhood friend who she has always trusted and loved is the very person who’s gonna betray the kingdom and plunge her to despair. Having narrowly escaped the traitorous siege, Princess Yona vows to muster all the power she can, grow up to be strong, and reclaim the kingdom that is rightfully hers.

If you become a fan of this anime, consider looking at this list of series similar to Akatsuki no Yona.

Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket

2. Fruits Basket

As an anime that is older than most on this list, Fruits Basket shows that age doesn’t matter when trying to shine as an anime in its genre. Actually, this show is quite great and very unique on its own. Because of that, it’s also very successful, popular, and renowned. At first, you’ll be entranced by the lighthearted comedy and slice-of-life story. Then you’ll notice that it becomes darker than you would have imagined. All the characters in Fruits Basket are very lovable. The drama is also quite strong! Although the anime isn’t quite complete due to it cutting away from the manga, it’s still one of the best reverse HRM there is!

Homeless and lonely after her mother’s death, Tohru Honda feels all alone in the world living by herself in just a tent with nothing but memories and her optimism. One day, as fate had it, Tohru meets the Sohma family and was asked to live with them in exchange for doing common house chores. But unbeknownst to Tohru, the Sohma family has a big secret. The whole family is cursed by the Zodiac. Whenever a person of the opposite sex hugs them, they transform into their respective zodiac signs! And so, upon discovering the secret, Tohru has to keep mum about the curse if she wants to continue living in the Sohma household and keep her precious memories with them.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

1. Ouran High School Host Club

Behold, the king of the reverse HRM genre—Ouran High School Host Club! I know you were expecting this one to come first on this list. It's not surprising because this anime is so perfect for an anime of this genre. For every scene, you’ll basically find yourself laughing and charmed every time! The characters are all very lovable, especially Haruhi despite her being a girl (Well, she actually does make a very good host with wonderful qualities). As far as the anime goes, it’s ginormously enjoyable and pleasant! Fans everywhere are actually ardently wishing for a second season for this series. Let’s just hope that there indeed will be a second season in the future. This show is too good (and one of the best reverse HRM anime) to just be left out!

While Haruhi Fujioka is just a commoner and simple girl, she and her wits have allowed her to study in the grand and prestigious school of Ouran High School. She is different from all the others who are rich and lavish. One day, in an attempt to find a quiet place for her to study in peace, she finds herself stumbling upon the school’s host club—the Ouran High School Host Club. Accidentally shattering a very expensive vase of the club, she now has to work for the club in order to pay her debt. Fortunately, the club discovers that her looks are actually on par with them as boys, so she now has to work for the club as a new host and as a boy of course (keeping her real gender a secret from everyone else).

If you like this classic series, you could take a look at this list of anime that is similar to Ouran High School Host Club.

Which Is the Best Reverse Harem Series?

Questions & Answers

Question: Uta no Prince-sama implied that there might be a season 5. Will there be a season 5?

Answer: There's a big chance that there will be a season 5. I believe that the final episode of the season 4 announced that season 5 was already in the works.

All of the anime's mentioned are so AMAZING! 10/10

Lucy Heartfillia on June 12, 2020:

Okay, in the comments below I see a huge mishap right guy with the name azure, just so you know marginal prince is a boys love anime (Shounen Ai) and reverse harem is when more than one guy like a girl who is the main protagonist, so sorry pal that anime does not correspond with the genre reverse harem.

Asuka on May 27, 2020:

-Magic Kyun!

-Dame x Prince

- B-Project

- Brother Conflict

- Diabolik Lovers

The Ultimate yonaXhak shipper on May 25, 2020:

Omg Akatsuki no Yona 10/10 recommend that show makes my heart melt especially my ship of Yona and Hak love them just watch the show. Also we need more reverse harem anime I don’t know what to watch next.

yeezys size 3 on May 15, 2020:

I've began watching this new reverse harem series called 'My Next Life as a Villainess: All routes lead to doom!'. I really recommend it if you in general like isekai animes, i'm not going to tell the plot in case people don't want to be spoiled, and it currently has only 6 episodes out. I believe it has a light novel/manga written about it, so check that out too if you want to.

Vivi on April 28, 2020:

Kamisama Kiss isn't really a reverse harem at all. The main focus is with Nanami and Tomoe, yes, Mizuki and Kurama seem to like Nanami as well but the story mainly follows Tomoe and Nanami.

Katelyn on April 04, 2020:

Try Norn 9. Has a good plot. One of the best. Also Hanasakeru Seishounen, story build up was the best

Lauren on March 26, 2020:

Hakuouki is not really reverse harem, but it's my all time favourite anime, sth about them being historical...shinsengumi...and oni(demons) just makes it so refreshing and sexier - story is great too, but yes a little despressing, sheds a tear or two but nothing like Clannad don't worry hahaha

the ultimate otome and otaku on February 19, 2020:

srry ik ouran highschool is a reverse harem but tamaki and the twin are the only one that likes her so I think they so be last in my opion but also my opion I think akatsuki no yona should be in the top three they all love her and not because of the dragon blood AND WE R RUNNING OUT OF REVERSE HAREMMMMSSS WE NEED MOREEE

Idk on January 14, 2020:

I need like serious help, there isn't enough reverse harem and Ive watch many already and I'm running out :(

Le otaku ôf greatness on January 05, 2020:

Diane clover on January 03, 2020:

Hi can someone please help me out.

I seem to have watched most of the reverse harem animes there is. If you know anyone that's not too popular can you post it please?

Sushmita on November 18, 2019:

I have some more interesting animes along with these:

Meiji Tokyo Renka

Noragami

Kaichou wa maid sama

Kiss him not me

Brothers conflict

Diabolik lovers

Magic kyun Renaissance

Dance with devil's

Snow White with red hair

Etc.... etc....

OwO on November 09, 2019:

so un-popular opinion but i personally think that ouran high school host club is extreamly over rated. It's just plain weird at times, i mean the twins have lowkey sexual moments like bro they are TWINS. But also the whole show IN my opinion. Is a mess, i personally don't like the main character, the boys are to cheesy and sterotypical and i know its a harmen but still, one of the characters seems like a downright sociopath and idk i just couldn't watch through it, it was like vampire night for me, i got near the end then i just go weird and stupid so i couldn't finish it ya know

Dio on September 17, 2019:

The comment below me is a flaw understanding of a harem and reverse harem. Usually in a reverse harem the side characters are in love with the main protagonist. It's not the other way around where the girl is in love with all of the characters. Idk what type of anime you watch that likes running trains but most Reverse harem like fruit basket she mainly liked the cat and the mouse. All the other characters was friends to her other than the cat because she was more drawn to him in the first place.

notknown on June 21, 2019:

Recommend yona, ouran, fruits basket, kamisama hajimemashita, and magic kyun renaissance. Also, yona and ouran are true reverse harems. Yona should be number 1 and magic kyun renaissance should be on the list. Though both start out kinda boring in the beginning, they get so good. Is snow white with the red hair considered one because there is kiki as a main character . . .

Brylee on June 02, 2019:

i dont even count ouran host club as a reverse harem becuase in the end she only really is in love with one guy. However she is surrounded by boys i count reverse harems where she's inlove with all of them

edjoftheworld on March 24, 2019:

Meiji Tokyo Renka!

unknown on March 14, 2019:

what about diabolik lovers?

Azure on March 10, 2019:

Fushigi Yuugi, Yona, Host Kamisama and Fruits Basket are NOT true reverse harems. Ditto Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko, which are a sort of parody of the genre. You missed almost all of the most representative title of the series: the Koei Neoromance series (Angelique which original game was the first otome ever, La Corda d'Oro and Harukanaru Toki no Naka de), Hiiro no Kakera, Amnesia, Dance with Devils, Diabolik Lovers (ok, it's shitty), Marginal Prince...

anonamus on February 11, 2019:

mite i suggest dance with devils or diabolic lover I would like to see more of both but unfortunatey for me there is nothing on the internet about new seasons for either once you watch you will be very disappointer there isn't

Anime lover on February 11, 2019:

Hakuouki is good but the tv show is quite tragic for some (not me). So I recommened you watch the Hakuouki movies as they have a happy ending and the female lead is not weak in the movie. And even though the movies are shorter then all the seasons it packs much more in then the seasons

jen cusa on February 09, 2019:

my fav is kamisama hajimemashita

KattSama on December 29, 2018:

kiss him, not me?

Zephoria on November 07, 2018:

How about ....

Arcana Famiglia

Nil admirari no tenbin

Shirayuki no hime(2 seasons)

Dance with devils

La corda d Oro(3 seasons)

Neo Angelique abyss

Sengoku night blood

Dame X Prince Anime Caravan

Kenka Banchou Otome Girl beat Boys

Hanasekaru Seishounen

Guys I am just posting some reverse harem animes that are not mentioned above and Inthe comment section (I think so)some of these animes are quite unpopular but if u guys couldn't find any other reverse harems,just give these animes a go.Have fun

zeroshiki on November 06, 2018:

is it weird that i am male and i like reverse harems more than i like normal harems even thought i am perfectly straight

ShadowBlessing on October 15, 2018:

Advice: Most reverse harem animes are just fanservice adaptations from the games. Diabolik Lovers isn't a good standalone anime(keep in mind, it's one of my favorite franchises), especially if you are looking for love; that's because character development and branching paths plays a HUGE role in the game(and there is none in the anime). Most reverse harem animes are to be viewed with a "they had to cram all the game in this tiny 12-episode anime" mindset.

That being said, I have the spanish translation of the ohshc manga up to number 7. I'ts quite enjoyable and full of comedy, but not about romance (Tamaki only had failed attempts until now, and Haruhi doesn't care about it), the Argentinean words of my version really go with that kind of manga.

Ali on October 02, 2018:

Hiiro no Kakera and Prince Of Stride are good too...

lilguurrrl on August 21, 2018:

i recommend kamisama hajimemashita, ouran high school hostclub, and kiss him not her.

Hannah on August 18, 2018:

All of them ive watched already but I recommend diabolic lovers, brothers conflict and also kamisama kiss... also the others are good too. Hakuoki is more of a tragedy but its still worth watching XD

angeskull1O1 on July 30, 2018:

;[ I' ve watched every possible reverse harem and where is diabolik lovers that's the best one

Just Weirdo. on July 28, 2018:

Where is Diabolik Lovers? Totally watch that if you have morbid and dark tastes but still want hot guys.

Jasmin on July 14, 2018:

Magic-Kyun! Renaissance try this one ^_^

Gwen on July 12, 2018:

I wouldn't call the wallflower a harem because only one boy was interested in the protagonist and one of the boys was even in a relationship to me it seemed more as a comedy romance between a dark girl and a golden boy. I do like the anime tho, I just wouldn't call it a harem

Lady on July 08, 2018:

I just don’t understand why they couldn’t make anymore like just one season isn’t enough so my one wish is that they would make more so we could watch more and more about them so there for please make more seasons to all of these shows and make them last forever.❤️

ßrooklynnn .-. on July 06, 2018:

I WOULD DEFINITELY CONSIDER YOU WATCH “Kiss him not me” ITS MY FAVORITE ANIME AND IT HAS SOME HOOD SPICY MOMENTS IN THERE IVE WATCHED RHE ANIME 7 TIMESSSS

Suga lover on June 18, 2018:

I am actually surprised with that so many people new about Yona of the dawn and Kamisama kiss because that is in my experience with people the top animes people don't know about.

Oh man... on June 11, 2018:

I’m surprised there’s not more votes for Hakuoki! It’s a beautiful story with amazing characters. And it’s loosely based on historical events, but with an added fantasy twist! Although I must say...

*spoiler alert*

This anime hurt. It’s definitely more of a trajedy than a reverse harem. The second season was one of the most depressing story endings I have ever experienced, especially when you consider the fact that it’s pretty close to the history of what actually happened at the end of the Edo period. But I think everyone should give it a try! It’s worth the pain and sadness.

tama on June 11, 2018:

Is amnesia really that interesting I mean the protagonist is so boring she doesn't have an energetic side like Nanami. Some anime that has boring female character worth mentioning are DAIBOLIK LOVERS,BROTHERS CONFLICT etc.

tama on June 10, 2018:

I think kamisama hajimemashta deserve a more higher place.

But there is something on my mind Is kamisama kiss really a reverse harem from the gender proportion it doesn't seem fit.

Anime4Life on June 10, 2018:

I've watched most of these, the only ones I haven't are Fruits Basket, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, Fushigi Yuugi, and Fushigi Yuugi... I really recommend the rest of the Anime's! But my favourite ones are probably Kamigami no Asobi and Amnesia!

jazzent on May 01, 2018:

Brothers conflict Is one of the best ...

amy on April 21, 2018:

i have watch all these anime shows the only one i need to watch is Hakuouki all the other ones were okay i think some could have been better but nice choices

anonymous on April 10, 2018:

i agree with you Monica Aria Monserate akatsuki no yona ia the best

Monica Aira Monserate on April 10, 2018:

Akatsuki no Yona should be number 1! It's so awesomeeee! You have to watch it!

Poop on March 26, 2018:

Kiss him not me

Brothers conflict

weeaboo on March 24, 2018:

kiss him, not me should be on this list and I have to agree with Ouran High School being #1

Yuii on March 16, 2018:

Gosh darn...when you've watched all of the best and worst reverse harems 1000 times and is still waiting for more (._.)

Kae Serinuma on February 24, 2018:

ナンバーワンはキスしなければならない、彼は私ではない。

Translation: Kiss him, not me should be number 1!

Anime!! on February 16, 2018:

My favourites are Brothers Conflict and Kiss Him not me.

Mahnoor chawla on February 03, 2018:

Ouran high school !! Obviously worth the first place ! It's awesome totally worth a try if you are looking for a good comedy reverse harem .

Akatsuki no yona fantastic really should watch it if you are looking for a good traveling reverse harem.

Kamisama hajimemashita and kamisami no asobi really worth atry if you are looking for a awesome good reverse harem.

Uta no prince sama I personally recommend if you are looking for a musical true reverse harem like Ouran high school.

Amnesia a really good anime if you are into another dimension reverse harem .

HOH on January 27, 2018:

There's a lot of others that are also really good but kamisama hajimemashita and akatsuki no yona would always be #1 because it's amazing out of all the animes that I've watched.

OOO on January 27, 2018:

Brother's conflict is absolutely disappointing. I personally love 'Kamisama Hajimemashita' and 'Akatsuki no yona' their both so good. Like by good I mean the best.

Uta no prince sama and Kamigami no asobi is both amazing.

Oyean High school host club is quite good but does it really worth first place?

Amnesia is a little disappointing, it's like I mean she has no opinions at all.

No comments on the rest because it not too good.

An on January 26, 2018:

Akatsuki No Yona. You have to watch it, or else I'll crawl into your room and make you.

Kylie on January 19, 2018:

Where is Brother's Conflict????

hihi on January 11, 2018:

Ouran Highschool Host Club.

Definitely.

... on January 08, 2018:

Reverse Harem anime's are usually packed full of drama, most of this lacks so. I am curious of why Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie was not included in this list or as a bonus. It may have short episodes but this shows how the passion is formed where as most lacking harem (or reverse harem) animes just show a build up. Key points of finding a well made harem (or reverse harem) anime is when you are also shown the progression of the character and are show there thought process so you understand completely. With these types of anime, you will find there is one main character (the lead) and then the sub-main characters (love interests).

Yours Sincerely,

...

Kohaiame on January 06, 2018:

I was hoping to see la corde d' oro on this list, but this is still helpful i might check out that one in 3rd that seems interesting thanks.

Rachael Lefler from Illinois on December 29, 2017:

I was wondering why they seemingly stopped making anime that puts female characters at the center. In the 90's and early 2000's we had Fruits Basket, Fushigi Yuugi, Rev. Girl Utena, Sailor Moon, Vision of Escaflowne, and so on. A lot of shows with female protagonists. Now you hardly see any, and if they're there it's a fluffy, silly anime like 'Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid'. But I got into anime at a time when there were a lot of cool shows that were girl-centered. The last good ones I can think of were KLK and PMMM.

I really enjoyed Fruits Basket, I was hoping you'd mention it, because it seems sort of like a forgotten gem these days!

I may check out others on this list. Amnesia looks promising and I like the associated song. I like works that are a bit more serious.

Opal on December 12, 2017:

One of my favorites is magic-kyun renaissance.

Yah on December 11, 2017:

I watched half of the a Nimes shown but I think you should watch wallflower. It is a real comedy

pewpewpew on December 03, 2017:

I would recommend "Kiss Him, Not Me", which is what had gotten me into reverse harem in the first place.

Kanna on November 09, 2017:

Why in almost every reverse harems the main heroines are boring, cute, brown-haired girls? :/

YO! I'm just a random gal! on October 25, 2017:

OK we all know that OHSHC.IS.THE.BEST. reverse harem anime evaaaa! and you're right, but you know there is actually a anime just like this with the heroine a freaking badass! It's not on the list but it's called............(drumroll pls!!!!)

Damn it I've seen every single one of them but If I had to recommend one it would have to be Kiss him not me.

I found this really entertaining but for my vote on this one it's gotta be YONA.

Anon on September 22, 2017:

I recommend Uta no Prince Sama!! The plot is ok but the guys in it are pretty damn good looking. There are all of the different types: The player, the happy/loud, the serious, the sporty, the kawaii/strange and the calm/cool.

Also High school star musical is worth cheking out as well if yourr5into anime with hot guys that sing, dance and act really well. ^_^

Susana on August 18, 2017:

I've seen all of them

lel on August 09, 2017:

Just Here to see some hot boys

Neon on August 08, 2017:

Also, brothers conflict is absolutely terrible. The boys are gorgeous (except for a five year old?????) but the main female and plot are horrible.

Yo on July 18, 2017:

I'd like to recommend one (that wasn't mentioned here) to my fellow reverse-harem lovers. Brothers Conflict! Honestly very entertaining and NO THEY AREN'T ACTUALLY RELATED. Animation is great, and each and every character is very unique so viewers have a lot to choose from!

Also, Kiss Him Not Me. But keep in mind that the protagonist is a fujoshi (part of the attractive men on men fandom.) But it's very funny and light-hearted, the heroine is definitely quite different from most reverse-harem heroines.

Alice in Wonderland on July 02, 2017:

Okay, by far, the best one, will always be OHSHC. But if someone could recommend some anime like ouran, I would be very much greatfull.

Storm on April 06, 2017:

Hakuouki should be on the "top 10 anime that rip your heart and put it in a blender" list. :'(

Joy/jb on March 04, 2017:

I've seen all of these they need to make new ones!!

Like right now

Otakumi on March 03, 2017:

cot damnit, i watched all of them already...

i recommend to watch amnesia,super gal,karin revolution,naruto,kamicham karin,yumerio patisserie ,black butler,vampire knight,fugishii,uta no prince sama,starry sky,brothers conflict,dance with the devils.

Axyzm on January 14, 2017:

i found a reverse harem manga.. where the4 protagonist are 10-12 girls who get exchanged to an all boys high school and every vchapter is about how a gierl discovers her preferences.. can anyone help me find it

Angel on January 10, 2017:

akatsuki no yona and kamisama kiss are one of my favorites. I do like amnesia and brothers conflict too

cphxm on January 01, 2017:

In my opinion, akatsuki no yona, fushigi yuugi, ouran host club, kamigami no asobi, uta no prince sama, and kamisama kiss are my all time favorites! My top 2 are yona of the dawn and fushigi yuugi because I LOVE THE CHARACTERS AND THE STORY PLOT!

tbh Amnesia and brother conflict aren't that good. I mean like its okay. Well the protagonist is useless. I love REVERSE HAREM like I need romance hehe

brother conflicts show boys falling in love with the sister but like they show the boy's problem first. So I got annoyed. Anmesia, well I was disappointed. I thought they actually like her but it only happen in each of the boy's point of view.

I'm not surprised diabolik lovers is not on the list. I mean I like it but not very much.

I'm very picky. I need an anime with developed characters and a good plot.

Catsy on November 19, 2016:

Ouran HSHC was one of the first anime series I ever watched... I've watched hundreds since then and it's still a favorite. So it was a great choice. I would say personally Kamisama Kiss is MY fave reverse harem but that's just me.

But how on earth is Brothers Conflict not on here!!!!!! That almost ruins this list completely.

Mina on August 27, 2016:

Hanasakeru Seishonen is really good. Definitely not your typical anime characters. All of the characters are well developed, and all the boys are super handsome. The main girl is also strong and cool. A classic in my opinion. Loved Akatsuki no Yona too.

Mika on August 14, 2016:

I recommend akatsuki no yona any day. I love that anime so much. Kami sama kiss is also very good :)

Rikka-chan on August 14, 2016:

Amnesia is SOOOO good! Ukyo is goals tbh

Dg on June 29, 2016:

I'm happy for#1 but I think that there would be more anime that are suitable to replace the other places in my opinion (brothers conflict)

Hanakala on June 23, 2016:

Ah no anyone who read Fruits basket or Yamato Nadeshiko these 2 are not clearly reverse harems because the guys have their own ships, those 2 are purely shoujo and the gender ratio is 5:5 unlike in harems where there are 1 male:10 females and they are clearly attracted to 1 guy no ships ... Plus where is Brother's Conflict??

Kuruka on June 22, 2016:

Wheres Diabolik Lovers?

And wheres Brothers Conflict? x3

Neko on June 22, 2016:

What's so great on OHSHC? Seriously?!

Ouran is one of those reverse harems that are made GOOD, no annoying, stupid MC, not clishes etc...

Instead of watching stupid UtaPri or other reverse harems, where MC can't do anything by herself, is Mary Sue and tsundere try watching Ouran and read manga after that. It's the only bearable harem in my opinion.

CookieMunster on June 17, 2016:

I don't think OHSHC is deserving of the top position. Tbh, it is so damn boring and really predictable.

Kat on June 15, 2016:

I really enjoyed Hiiro no Kakera, though it's kind of obvious who the girl ends up with.

aunizi on June 12, 2016:

One of the best reverse harem animes I have ever seen was "The Story of Saiunkoku" about a girl who is fighting to be a government official in a fictional kingdom based on feudal Japan, when women were not allowed to hold positions of power

Person A on June 07, 2016:

I've watched Brothers Conflict, Uta no Prince-Sama, Hakuoki, Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, Akatsuki no Yona, Amnesia, Kamigami no Asobi, Arcana Famiglia, Diabolik Lovers, La Corda D'oro and parts of Kamisama Kiss and Starry Sky. Reverse Harem are so good!

sadperson on June 01, 2016:

brother's conflict?!

yamagache on May 25, 2016:

I loved most of these! I recommend watching Uraboku its an excellent anime! would place it also in the RVRS HRM category even though the main chara is a male for a very specific reason. (watch to understand why) lots of gorgeous looking men/a demon and a plethora of heart wrenching emotions from everyone, especially from the main chara. plus the art is very pretty.

Nina on May 11, 2016:

Akatsuki no yona!!! I love OHSHC but akatsuki man that's a good story. I personaly recomend to read the mangas if you wanted a 2 season OHSHC is completed and akatsuki no yona is ongoing. Btw fruits basket is completed too (sorry for bad english)

Lana on May 05, 2016:

La corda d'oro needs to be on this list. It's a personal fav of mine.

commoner girl on August 18, 2015:

I love OHSHC, i watched the serie and readed the manga and between those I choose... the manga!!!! It's conpletly recommended

Bread on August 17, 2015:

:( saw every last one of them already,

any other suggestions?

GUEST on April 12, 2015:

I really don`t understand wht`s so great about Ouran Host Club... it`s really boring for me.... too clihe n predictable... sigh~... probably I got a different taste in anime.. -_-

Junior on March 23, 2015:

I've watched all of them except two of them. I'm a huge reverse harem fan. Favourite reverse harem is OHSHC, Kamigami no Asaobi and UtaPri

Tricia on March 18, 2015:

I really recommend Ouran Host Club!

Why? I watched every episode thrice!

Best one I would say...
