Haneda Takashi has a secret he cannot speak of. To leave his dull school-life, he was supposed to have escaped to another world. However, he is reeled in by certain ties on his heart. One of these is Kobato, his awkward younger sister. The other is Watarai Asuka, his negligent girlfriend.

Chitose Shuusuke is a poor freeloader. He passes his days working at various part-time jobs. One day, he has a disastrous first encounter with Tamaizumi Hiyoko. The next time they meet, Shuusuke discovers that they are fellow employees at his part-time job.

Narita Hayato sees himself as a "hard-boiled" person. Back-breaking jobs are nothing to him. Hayato shuns normal human contact, but, during the nights, he would get together with delinquents and other denizens of the night. One such night, he meets the cheerful and oblivious Otori Naru.

The relationships with these girls will greatly affect these 3 young men. But what, exactly, is the relationship these young men have with each other?

I know it's unjustifiable to give an 8 to an anime that has a GOD DAMN AWFUL FIRST EPISODE but before you hover that mouse pointer on top of the "Not Helpful" vote, please do take the time in actually reading this first.

Harem would probably be my least favored genre as this includes the generic moe/ecchi or whatever fanservice they could come up. I might also disfavor the said genre because of the fans which consists mainly of the typical perverted otaku who faps to his 2D waifu. Nonetheless, I still push myself to watch anime of the harem genre in hopes of finding something read more

Once upon a time the world considered mental illness to be a taboo subject, so much so that those who suffered were often shunned or locked away, and it was often the case that stories dealing with the issue were thought of as ... controversial. Nowadays there is greater understanding of the ailments of the mind, and with that has come a rise in the number of tales featuring the subject as a central theme. That said, there is a tendency to focus on clinical depression, schizophrenia, psychosis, and other well known illnesses, which may seem a little odd until one realises that the most read more

No matter how much you may want to escape, you cannot fly without wings. Even if you try to deny who you are, you can't change exactly who you are. That being said, this anime came to me as a surprise. I first discovered it from an English-dubbed trailer released by Funimation, and because of it, I expected it to be a nonsensical ecchi. I came for the ecchi and ended up staying for the amazing story that blew my initial expectations right out of the window.

Adapted from the visual novel created by Navel (the company that created Shuffle and Soul Link, two eroge that read more

"May the world know peace" is the key qoute of this series.

This series is one multiple personality disorder gone berserk, well not really berserk just pretty much loopy, basically it pretty much takes you on a trippy ride which will have you confuse as to which side is up or left.. Even that line didn't make sense. But got to say this series was a bit surprising I honestly thought this had a dark element to it, but actually it was pretty light, by the way this anime is superrr ecchi so for those who don't like gropping some tittay, white stuff on girls, or read more

Anime: Durarara!!

Both have a HUGE cast
Both have a bit of fantasy

Anime: Shuffle!
Producers:FUNimation and Entertainment
Genres:Drama, Ecchi, Romance, Harem
Rating: R+ - Mild Nudity

They both have similar type of animation.
And if you liked Shuffle,you will like Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai. :)

Anime: ef: A Tale of Memories.
Similar fractured method of storytelling. 
reportRecommended by Kinodesu
Anime: Sasami-san@Ganbaranai
Both shows can be confusing in the beginning and their reputation has probably unduly suffered because of that.

If you like comedy, ecchi, fantastic art, and a bit of drama, then both these shows deliver.

Anime: To LOVE-Ru Darkness
Both are harem anime with nudity and dark plots that never get too dark. 
reportRecommended by shigeru212
Anime: C³
Both are shows that have lots of ecchi and shift frequently between comedy and drama.
