List Rules Vote up your favorite harem anime series.

List of the best Harem anime, voted on by Ranker's anime community. If you're not familiar with the harem genre, it usually involves a character being surrounded by at least 3 members of the opposite gender. The genre is closely related to ecchi anime and many of them feature some of the hottest blonde anime girls.—if you’re into that kind of stuff.

Harem anime is typically focused on a man and three women, while the opposite scenario is referred to as reverse harem anime. This poll includes video clips of each show, so if you haven't seen one you can watch it right here on this page. The shows that are listed may have different sub-genres, but they're all about Harem in one way or another.

Examples of anime on this list include Akikan!, Tenchi Muyo! and more. What is the greatest Harem anime of all time? Scroll down and find out for yourself!
