Many criticize the harem genre of anime for its overly formulaic approach and execution. And Ladies vs. Butlers will probably not change the opinions of these critics, since practically every convention common in harem anime is crammed into this show.

The premise behind Ladies vs. Butlers is simple yet predictable. The main character, Hino Akiharu, attends a school for upper-class ladies that is also dedicated to instructing maids and butlers how to function in high-class society. The story basically details Hino interacting with the various girls at the school and the various ecchi situations he gets himself into. The majority of this read more

Hey, here's a fun game! In thirty seconds, try and see how many common Ero-game character archetypes you can think of then, see how many of them you can find in Ladies versus Butlers. I did the same thing and found all of them before I was even halfway through episode 1. You name it, they've got it! From tsundere, to clumsy chicks, to childhood friend/tormentor. They even have an OBVIOUS reverse trap who's roommates with our main hero and what harem would be complete without a 19 year old girl who looks like she's 10!

However, I digress. The truth is Ladies vs. Butlers read more

I'm just gonna get the obvious stuff out of the way first. Ladies versus Butlers is an ecchi harem comedy that does little to break the chain of "we don't need a story as long there are boobies" shows that we see in shows of this genre. Almost all the characters fall perfectly within some set archetype, and don't really see anything in the way of character development. Also, this show has more of these archetypes than I think I've ever seen in one place, as well all the gags you'd expect in this genre.

Despite this, I still enjoyed this series quite a bit , read more

Ladies versus Butlers is amongst the most honest anime in existence. At no point is it pretending to be anything other than brain-dead ecchi comedy. It doesn’t try to tell a story, it doesn’t try to have characters you should like, it doesn’t even try to be anything other than the tired, repetitive softporn humour the Japs are so good at and that is what makes it so much more enjoyable. So as long as all you want is endless retarded borderline hentai without irrelevant elements such as a plot or character emersion getting in the way, then this is the show for you. read more

Anime: Mayo Chiki!
Both shows have a harem style plot (or lack thereof) and have girls pretending to be butlers. There is also a similarity between Saikyou Tomomi and Kanade Suzutsuki in that they are both "S" type character who are out to ruin the protagonist's day. Though the comedies differ in setting and character backgrounds, the style are somewhat similar.

Anime: Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de
main character becomes the butler of three female masters and he and his sister work with 2 other maids and butlers. The mistresses all tease him about his innocence with seductive advances. Likewise, in both shows: the main characters are trained to be ideal butlers, are full of ecchiness and fan service, and they are both clear cut harems.

Anime: Walkure Romanze
Similarities:

Both involves girl in the higher echelons and guy in the lower class of the school's hierarchy.

Both involves childhood friends attending the same school.

Both have the same awkward situation where the main character has a bad start.

Both have the same harem, school, romance and ecchi genre.

Dissimilarities:

In one anime the girl's school uniform is way too hot for the girls, while in the other anime their school uniforms makes them girls look like grannies.

One has an extra action genre while the other has comedy.

One started as an eroge game, while  read more

Anime: Princess Lover!
Similar Harem story... The main protagonist is involved with high class rich girls in a harem mix...

Both stories involve the guy transferring to the Rich School and getting involved with multiple girls both popular and the innocent... But there are more girls involved with the guy on Ladies versus Butlers! than on Princess Lover!.

Both involve a witty/smart guy which is dissolved on the funny circumstances of the story.

Difference is that, Princess Lover! can also get into serious mode while Ladies versus Butlers! is more comedic.
