Issei Hyodo is your average perverted high school student whose one wish in life is to have his own harem, but he's got to be one of the unluckiest guys around. He goes on his first date with a girl only to get brutally attacked and killed when it turns out the girl is really a vicious fallen angel. To top it all off, he's later reincarnated as a devil by his gorgeous senpai who tells him that she is also a devil and now his master! One thing's for sure, his peaceful days are over. In a battle between devils and angels, who will win?

What? An extremely ecchi-based series that actually has a decent plot line? Unheard of...

High School DxD (I guess Demon x Demon?) is like a cross between the fights of Ikkitousen and the setting in Kore wa Zombie Desuka. An extremely perverted, girlfriend-less dude named Issei suddenly gets a girlfriend and then promptly dies soon afterwards. He is then reborn as a Demon and serves under high-class demon Rias Gremory.

The first line in the series after the initial intro are along the lines of "ah.. I wanna squeeze some boobs." You pretty much know exactly what you're getting into at that point. However, despite the very read more

High School DxD is an anime that has been praised as the best ecchi ever made, and in a way that is accurate. Seriously though, it is an ecchi. For all of you ecchi haters, stay away. Shove down your masochistic tendencies and walk away, this is not an anime you are going to enjoy.
We all know what we are getting into when we turn this show on, copious amounts of T&A. High School DxD has quickly become synonymous with that phrase. But even then, that was not the sole reason I turned this show on. I generally am the type that needs a read more

I saw the first season and it was horrible.
I have no problem with nudity, but when it's tastelessly put it annoys me a LOT!

The plot is so poor and the animation is SO SO pitiful.
They literally put the entire budget to animate the Boobs/Nipples. I'm so speechless about it!
The characters are tasteless, without interest and very very stereotyped.
the plot stinks, The characters stinks, even the script & explanation of the protagonists stinks.

To sum up, it's a nonsensical anime that wants to be a story mixing action and demon but with breasts everywhere and coarse language. The worst is that this is read more

This anime was undoubtedly one of the worst animes I've seen. It was lacking in character development, structural plot, and any redeeming characteristics other than probably giving a numb-skulled male, a stiffy.

Well, let's start with the opening. Three pathetically horny boys, lusting over their fellow school mates, exclaiming their desire for breasts. I realize this is an Ecchi, but the blatant obnoxiousness of the three, especially the male protagonist, Issei, was utterly sickening.

I am not one to preach to the choir, but this anime was beyond sexist. Not the playful tinges evident in most that's easily ignored. It was the real deal. And read more

Anime: Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai.
In both:
-Main normal guy which loves erotic things and has the special powers.
-Main girl is from underworld demon.
-Similar art.
-No censorship on the chest and pants.

Anime: Highschool of the Dead
A blood world filled with paradise where both the main characters find themselves in an irresistible position of being able to own the highest standard of a woman.

'Highschool of the Dead' highlights the struggle for survival when the apocalypse has arrived. In the midst of such danger, desires arise in the most unpredictable of situations and the thought of 'you only live once' comes into play which in turn leads a person to show his true colours.

'High School DxD' exhibits an ambitious person who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, be it in a comedic or perverted way.  read more

Anime: Shinmai Maou no Testament
What the 2 have in common:

It involves a Red Head demon who is in a relationship with a guy, both animes share almost the same genre, except the plot where in HSDxD the Red Head is the master, while in SMnT the Red Head is the slave due to some set backs.
