  • Certainly more humorous and not nearly as scandalous, you've probably already heard of the popular harem anime, Nisekoi. While themes of young love and complex love triangles are present as the main plot of the anime, much like it is for Domestic Girlfriend, this anime is far more light-hearted and sure to make you laugh. Raku Ichijou looks like your average high school boy, but he's actually the sole heir to his yakuza family. While he wants nothing to do with this, he also has to pretend to be in a relationship with Chitoge Kirisaki, the beautiful daughter of a rival gang, in order to maintain peace. While all of this is going on, Chitoge is also looking for his childhood friend, with whom he made a promise with and also holds the key to his locket.

    Toradora! is exceptionally innocent when compared to Domestic Girlfriend, but there is a reason why it's on this list! Mainly because the love triangle is complex and gets even more tied together when different emotions are felt between the characters. As one of the classic and popular webbed love stories, Toradora! follows the story of Ryuuji Takasu and Taiga Aisaka; two dangerous-looking teens who have a common problem when it comes to love. Both of them realize that the other has a crush on their respective best friends. Naturally, they team up to help the other get together with their crushes. But things can't really be that easy, can they?

    An NTR anime, Citrus had quite the following when it came out. Another twisted and heartbreaking story about falling in love with someone you really shouldn't, this anime follows the story of Yuzu Aihara after her mother has remarried. Having to uproot her entire life to start again at an all-girls academy, Yuzu takes the news well and decides to make the best of it. She looks forward to meeting her new family and making new friends at school, but it looks like it won't be that easy. The class president seems to have it out for her and she's treated like a delinquent for her looks. Things get even worse when she realizes that the school president, Mei, is also going to be her stepsister. As her sister, she should love her, but not that much right? Certainly, a different vibe that includes feelings for a step-sibling, this anime has very similar themes to Domestic Girlfriend
