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?

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

High School DxD is based on the light novels written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. It stands out from the other ecchi harems that I have seen in sense that the first season cannot really be considered a harem but rather Issei going after the female love interest Rias Gremory. Some of the other female characters do show interest such as Asia when Issei becomes more intimate with the other girls. But the real harem aspects of High School DxD show up in the second season. If you are a fan of the ecchi genre you will be pleased to hear that DxD read more

Surprisingly, despite this being labeled as "harem," this show didn't feel much like harem to me. Really strange. In fact, Sword Art Online felt even more of a harem than this, but ok. Issei only had like one real love interest, and that was Rias. Maybe it's the perspective of socially awkward people who think that if a girl talks to a guy, that means that the girl is in love with the guy that makes them think this is a harem. So I guess harem now means having a bunch of female characters and having one relevant male character in a same show. Oh, 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.
