Reverse Harem You Should Watch Pt. 1

Hello everyone! I have made a tiny series in which I’ll list anime for those of you who are into reverse harems, and want to find something new to watch.

For those wondering what a reverse harem is, it’s pretty simple, the main character is female, and two or more men are gathered around her, typically turning into love interests. This type of anime mainly focuses on a female audience and will always features very handsome male characters. This will usually make the viewer indecisive about who to support. Overall, reverse harems may be overlooked by people, but some series are worth watching, so be sure to check the ones listed below!

Reverse harem

Studio: Bones

Episodes: 26

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Synopsis: Haruhi Fujioka is a bright scholarship candidate with no rank or title to speak of, a rare species at Ouran High School, an elite academy for students of high pedigree. When she opens the door to Music Room #3 hoping to find a quiet place to study, Haruhi unexpectedly stumbles upon the Host Club. Led by the princely Tamaki, the club, whose other members include Kyouya, the Hitachiin twins, Haninozuka and Mori, is where handsome boys with too much time on their hands entertain the girls in the academy.

In a frantic attempt to remove herself from the hosts, Haruhi ends up breaking a vase worth eight million yen and is forced into becoming the eccentric group’s general errand boy to repay her enormous debt. However, thanks to her convincingly masculine appearance, her naturally genial disposition toward girls, and fascinating commoner status, she is soon promoted to full-time male host and plunged headlong into a glitzy whirlwind of elaborate cosplays, rich food, and exciting shenanigans that only the immensely wealthy Ouran Host Club can pull off.
