10 Best Reverse Harem Anime to Watch

Everyone knows that reverse harem (as opposed to traditional harem which features a male character having multiple female characters around him, often in love with him) is a nice, refreshing spark in the harem-for-males-dominated anime world.

As much as I adore fit & hot anime chicks, I have a thing for bishounen guys surrounding a sweet innocent soul too!  

To ensure that only the high-quality reverse harem anime gets on the list, I picked only the best reverse harem anime I have seen.

The story centers around a high-schooler Kae Serinuma, who is a very nice person with a passion for anime and manga, mainly when it comes to yaoi. This obsession with yaoi makes Kae fantasize about her male classmates engaging in yaoi activities. Kae might be kind and wonderful but she is overweight. Thus, males don’t pay much attention to her in a romantic way. 

One day, Kae witnesses the death of her favorite anime character which makes her experience utter sadness and she falls into depression. For the next week, Kae does not attend school and does not consume any meals either.

This is one of my most favored anime ever. This anime is perfect in every aspect for a romantic soul. It’s not oversweet and the relationship between the main characters develops slowly, but not too slowly so you won’t be bored to death. 

The main heroine named Nanami Nonozomo is a “normal” high schooler. Except for the fact that her father ran away because of his gambling debt. As a result, Nanami had to leave her house because of eviction (basically becoming homeless).

After saving a man named Mikage who was chased by a dog and ended up hanging on a tree, she receives a kiss on her forehead from Mikage who also offers her to stay in his house instead of him. Nanami is homeless so she accepts the offer, not realizing that Mikage bestowed upon her a mark of Deity.

She soon finds out that she will live with a familiar, an attractive fox yokai Tomoe and also the keepers of the shrine. Nanami becomes the Earth God and works hard to fit into her new role whilst trying to live a normal high school life.
