It turns out there are some great anime that don't shy away from presenting nudity, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime with nudity, including older titles, as well as new anime with nude characters that you may not know about.

One well-known example is Elfen Lied, which is German for "song of the elves." Taking on themes of animosity and humanity, the series tells the story of the Diclonii, a newly mutated species that look very close to human, only with horns and invisible arms known as "vectors." The anime does feature a scene without clothing, but the main takeaway is how the story tackles being different. Another good anime with nudity is High School DxD.

Don't see your favorite anime with nudity here already? Add it to the list!
