The manga is relatable to the student’s life and had a nice mix with rom-com. This series had good potential.

And what will happen when the search for the key gets complicated with more girls coming into the plot.

If you read the starting chapters of the manga, you will be hooked on its plotline. However, as it starts progressing into more chapters after, like 100+,  you will find that the story has become repetitive with little to no character development and strayed away from its original decent plot. But still, the starting chapters and even the ending are good enough to read if you do pick up this manga.

20. Denpa Kyoushi

Score: 7.80/10

Although the manga has borrowed many themes from the other existing series, it has managed to turn it into something unique and exciting in the process. Each Arc is illustrating different stories, which makes this harem manga enjoyable to read. The only weak point the manga has is its art style, which is entirely inconsistent throughout the series. But with its plot and fantastic characters, it was able to surpass that lacking aspect.

Grisaia no Rakuen - best harem manga

19. Grisaia no Rakuen

Score: 7.80/10

The story unfolds after the events of Grisaia no Meikyuu. It involves Kazami Yuuji, who has been detained. And suspected to be connected to the international terrorist organization that has managed to enter Japan with a dangerous weapon.

Meanwhile, due to financial issues, the Mihama Academy might close within a month.

And Yuuji’s case is a lot more complicated than they initially thought. Fortunately, after getting help from a mysterious individual known as Thanatos, they might be able to achieve their goal.

The plot sounds a lot more complicated as it has various franchises interlinked with each other. But the series will make you interested in reading it through.  A unique story and mystery theme coupled with the psychological genre will make you engrossed in its universe.

Kyou kara ma no Tsuku Jiyuugyou

18. Kyou kara Ma no Tsuku Jiyuugyou!

Score: 7.82/10

That’s precisely what happened with Yuuri Shibuya as the bullies even dunked his head in the toilet. But somehow, he ends up in another world after that. At first, he thought he was in some amusement park where people were cosplaying in the medieval getup. But the people suddenly started throwing stones at him and shouting in an alien language.

Follow the journey of Yuuri as he tries to get used to his new status as a demon lord and also deliver justice in the world of Shin Makoku.

Are you a passionate Fujoshi (BXB) and looking for great fanservice in a manga? Then look no further because you have found it! This harem manga is heavy on the Shounen Ai moments to the point of extremely cliche. The first Arc of this manga is enjoyable. But the mangaka entirely focused on the Fujoshi pandering in the later arcs, which dropped its rating from better to average.

monster musume - best ecchi manga

17. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou

Score: 7.83/10

Humans thought that monsters are just mythical creatures. But they soon discovered that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and other creatures are not merely a myth or a fantasy, and now both these species have to learn to coexist with each other. Thanks to the “Cultural Exchange Between Species Act,” coexisting might become a lot easier.

In the Government program to aid these species in assimilating with the society, they choose ‘volunteer’ humans to live with. One of those humans is Kurusu Kimihito, and a sexy snake-like lamia named Miia is selected to live with him. Now Kimihito has to take care of her and be careful not to pursue any unwanted thoughts toward this beautiful lamia. But it might become harder to endure when a ravishing centaur and a flirtatious harpy also moves in.

You might be bored with all the girls being normal in most harem manga, but this series presents to you the harem of monster girls. The art style is well done and a fantastic job showing itself as an ecchi comedy harem that will make you laugh and enjoy it fully.

Rockin Heaven - best harem manga

16. Rockin’★Heaven

Score: 7.84/10

Sawa is a young girl who enrolled in Heaven’s wing academy because she thought that the uniform would look cute on her. However, little did she know that this academy was previously an all-boys school. Moreover, even the academy’s head boss started disliking her on the spot, making her school life from here on out miserable. One day, the bullies threw her shoes in the water, and when she went to retrieve them, she almost drowned. Surprisingly, she is saved by Ran, her biggest bully in school. And she slowly finds herself falling for him.

If you are looking for a shoujo with a happy ending and cliche plot, then Rockin’ Heaven is for you. Some matters in manga might have been left open by the mangaka. But overall, the story is quite enjoyable.

Trinity Seven - best harem manga

 15. Trinity Seven: 7-nin no Mashotsukai

Score: 7.87/10

The plot revolves around Kasuga Arata, who lives in a small town with his cousin and childhood friend, Kasuga Hijiri. He was living a mundane life in the city, but it all changed one day with a black sun’s appearance. And he seems to be the only one who could see this phenomenon. Following the black sun’s destructive event, a magician arrives who tells him about the virtual world that he had created with the Grimoire, a magical item given to Arata by his cousin for the keepsake. Now, what new adventure awaits our protagonist as he learns about the secret existence of magic?

A high rated harem manga, which has managed to balance the different genres of the series fantastically. Even the art of this manga is excellent, with beautiful girls and a detailed background. The plot might not be that unique, but what it has done is enough to capture its readers.

Ichigo 100

14. Ichigo 100%

Score: 7.90/10

Startled, she immediately escapes, but Junpei was still able to catch a sight of her strawberry panties in an extremely close upshot. Follow Junpei Manaka in his quest to find that enticing girl with the only clue being those panties.

Ichigo 100% is one of the great classical harems and ecchi manga. A loser boy with beautiful girls surrounding him is a typical plot, but it is rather enjoyable with its likable characters and romance development. You will always be speculating about the ending and with whom the protagonist will end up.

Konosuba - best harem manga

13. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

Score: 7.91/10

A humiliating traffic accident brought the life of  Kazuma Sato, a video game-loving freak, to an untimely end. But this is not the finale for our protagonist. After his death, he is greeted with a beautiful Goddess, Agua, and is given a chance to be transmigrated to another world. Moreover, he can also wish for power or anything he wants before going there. But granting him this might have been the biggest mistake this celestial has ever done. Follow Kazuma and his crazy party in their adventure in the world of magic.

The manga has your typical “another world” plot like other similar series. However, satirical nature and abundant comedy in the manga make up for what lacks in the plot. So if you would like an ‘Isekai’ genre with a comedic view, I highly recommend this series.

12. Love Hina

Score: 7.93/10

A hapless student, Keitarou failed to get into his desired university and has no luck in women. But he decided not to give up and strives to do his best in studying.

Hayate no Gotoku - best harem manga

However, he saves her from the other kidnappers, leading to the emerging feeling of Nagi Sanzenin for him. Nagi then offers to pay off his debt in exchange for Hayate becoming her butler. And this is how the story of a combat butler begins.

A lighthearted harem manga coupled with romance, comedy, and action. It has its shortcomings in the form of fillers. Aside from that, an excellent manga to pick up.
