Harem anime is one of the fastest growing anime genres in the world. But many might asked at least once on what does harem mean? Harem is a kind of story in Japanese anime and manga where a male character is surrounded by many female characters. The term "harem" is generally not used by itself, but as an adjective to the genre, such as harem anime or harem manga.

Fortunately, most of the best Anime websites features the best harem anime. Some of the popular harem anime tropes are Accidental Pervert, Arranged Marriage, Audience Surrogate, Battle Harem, and Betty and Veronica. Accidental Pervert is a characterization where the person comes across as being lewd, but are too coward to be open about it. Arranged Marriage is the idea that someone will choose your spouse for you. Audience Surrogate is a characterization where the character asks questions the audience would ask and says things the audience would say. Battle Harem is where the male lead has a harem of potential love interests, all are some sort of tough girls. And "Betty and Veronica" is one of the common types of Love Triangle, two love interests with different personalities fall for the same main character.
