Why have a real life boyfriend (#singlelife) when you can have fictional handsome guys instead?
Hello bookish friends! Today I have my top 5 reverse harem anime to share with you! If you do not know, reverse harem is a genre in anime that refers to a girl surrounded by a group of guys (at least 3 or more!).
1.Kamigami no asobi (I think it translates into ‘The Gods have come to play’ or something along those lines)
Genres: Romance, Fantasy, Reverse harem, Shoujo, Supernatural
Yui, our protagonist is instructed by Zeus, the headmaster of the school, to teach the young Gods about love to prevent the weakening of the bonds between the mortal and divine world.
This reverse harem anime has familiar Gods such as Loki, Apollon, Anubis and much more! A reverse harem and surrounded by mythology? Sign me up!
2.Kamisama hajimemashita (I became a God)
Genres: Comedy, Fantasy, Supernatural, Romance, Shoujo
When Nanami is evicted out of her home due to her dad’s increasing debts, a kind man takes her in and she is forced to take over his duties as a Deity. With a ton of new responsibilities and a hot but annoying familiar, what’s a girl got to do?
This anime was really cute and if you see how the protagonists were related, it really warms the heart! With a swoon-worthy romance, Kamisama Hajimemashita will leave you wanting to to follow Nanami and Tomoe forever.
3.Akatsuki no yona (Yona: The girl standing in the blush of dawn)
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Shoujo
On Princess Yona’s sixteenth birthday, she intends to tell her father of her feels towards her childhood friend Soo-Woon, but everything changed when she witnessed Soo-Won killing her father. Due to this betrayal, Yona feels with her loyal servant Hak as they gather allies to stop the impending war.
This, hands down has to be one of my favourite anime of all time! We get to see Yona’s character arc as she grows from a weak princess into a kick-ass heroine! Also, all the characters are really lovely and this anime was really serious and yet very comedic!
4.Dance with devils
Genres: Supernatural, Romance, Shoujo
Ritsuka is a second year high schooler and one day the balance of the world is disrupted when she meets devils.
This anime was really cute and they also have a movie for it! The romance was pretty good in this one!
Genres: Action, reverse harem, romance, shoujo
On Regalo, a team of supernaturally powered mafia people take care of the people. They form contracts with tarot cards and each of them posses a different ability. Mondo, the leader announces his resignation and the team will fight to see who is worthy to take his place, but the winner will also win Felicità’s hand in marriage. Angered by her father’s words, Felicità decides to take part as well to battle for her freedom.
This anime combines tarot cards with a strong heroine, totally sign me up for it! I absolutely enjoyed this anime thoroughly but wished that there would be more romance.
