List of the best Harem anime, voted on by Ranker's anime community. This may not be the most popular genre of Japanese animation, but all of these top harem anime shows are worth checking out if you're looking for something new to watch. 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!

JulioSolano added Heaven's Lost Property (Sora No Otoshimono) Tomoki Sakurai is a young man whose motto is “Peace and quiet is the best”, but he finds it difficult when he has to put up with his next door neighbor with a killer karate chop, Sohara Mitsuki; Eishiro Sugata, an eccentric scientist bent on discovering the “New World”; and Mikako Satsukitane, a borderline sadist. One day, while he was witnessing a strange anomaly in the sky, a UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal) falls from it. What falls from the sky is an Angeloid named Ikaros, who soon becomes Tomoki’s servant. From then on, more Angeloids come to him, and with this, he finds himself struggling for his peace and quiet, but at the same time finds pleasant things the Angeloids bring him.

xmiggy17 added Grisaia no Kajitsu Mihama Academy is a prison-like school built to preserve "fruit" that has fallen too far from its tree. It is home to five female students who each have their own reasons for enrolling in the academy and live their life idly within the walls of Mihama. One day, Kazami Yuuji—the institute's first male student—arrives and throws the orderly rhythm of Mihama off balance. Is Yuuji what the girls need to grab hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome? Or, is his past even heavier than any of the others?(Source: Crunchyroll)

JulioSolano added The story revolves around Takeru Ohyama, a young normal yet perverted minded guy who has been accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Haruko Amaya, his childhood friend, Inaho Kushiya, a girl who says she’s his fiance, and Kodama Himegami, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don’t like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn’t know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, of which he seemingly has none.
