anime of the harem genre is a Russian roulette wheel. That’s because most Japanese anime have some kind of harem, and often this idea ends up going wrong and ruining the anime. Only there are some anime of the harem genre that have worked very well, and in this article we will see the best harem anime of all time.

Reverse Harem Anime List

A reverse harem includes three or more characters who potentially show romantic interest in a female protagonist.
