Brothers Conflict is one of the best reverse harem anime (definitely not a soft reverse harem as I call anime like Fruits Basket for example).
The difference between the soft reverse harem and an actual reverse harem is that the former is just hinting instead of including romantic scenes with multiple guys – it might be one-sided from the guy’s side or it might be so “soft” that you barely notice because it’s borderline friendship.
Brothers Conflict is exactly the definition of what the true reverse harem should be – many romantic scenes with multiple bishounens.
Fantasy has no boundaries in this anime even though it’s not exactly what you would call a fantasy anime (it has some supernatural phenomena though).
I did my best to come up with 7 anime that resemble Brothers Conflict below.
