It turns out there are some great anime where the setting is a boarding house, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime about boarding houses and the ensuing drama that follows for its residents, including older titles, as well as new boarding house anime that you may not know about.

One example of a boarding house anime is The Pet Girl of Sakurasou. Set in in the dormitory of an arts university, the story centers on Sorata Kanda and how fate throws him together with famed artist Mashiro Shiina as he unwittingly becomes her handler. Another good anime set in a boarding house is Kuragehime or Princess Jellyfish, an 11-episode series that peered into the lives of the otaku tenants of an apartment building and one in particular, Tsukimi, who doesn't realize her new friend is someone completely else.
