What are the best reverse harem anime?

Many of us know a thing or two about harems in anime. For those who don’t, these are stories where there are one male protagonist and three or more females who may or may not be head over heels for him. But what does that make Fruits Basket, Ouran High School Host Club, and the classic Fushigi Yuugi where a single girl was pursued by many men? Well, it’s simply called a reverse harem. As its name implies, it’s the exact opposite of what a harem is. While not exactly getting enough attention as the latter, the reverse harem has a charm of its own that entices people to consume it.

It’s a given that reverse harems are mainly romance animes. Well, you’ve got a heroine and a couple of guys wooing her. That’s romance, right? It definitely is but anime of this kind doesn’t always end up with the girl finally choosing the lucky guy. On rare occasions, she just doesn’t choose and settles in with all of her suitors. I know it’s wild but that’s what polyamory is about. Just like that famous line, the more the merrier. If you’re ready to enter this one of a kind genre, then check out our list of the best reverse harem anime. Though the whole selection is not as big as other genres, still we’ve painstakingly chosen the gems from the non-gems just for you to enjoy. Tell us which among these did you like best by leaving a comment or by casting your votes.

    "For someone like me who is a big fan of well-executed reverse harem anime... I can tell you that this should be included in your reverse harems list. We all know recent reverse harems have been having the same conflict, fortunately, this is anything but that, which is why i liked it so much. I might as well add though that i didn't get enough romance here but rather lots of bromance. XDDDD"

    "Definitely would be recommending this to anyone who is a fan of reverse harem anime. I heard that this was based on real-life events, anyways, the pace of the plot is quite slow at first but i understand why it was like that. Aside from that the characters have good character development."

    "Ouran High School is absolutely one of the best reverse harem anime I have watched so far which has impacted me after I saw the first episode. It didn't start too draggy but it showed the main idea of the plot where the leads discovered Haruhi is a girl."
