The story of To Love-Ru revolves around Rito Yūki, a high-school student who cannot confess to the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji. One day when coming home and sulking in the bathtub, a mysterious, nude girl appears out of nowhere. Her name is Lala and she comes from the planet Deviluke, where she is the heir to the throne. Her father wants her to return to her home planet so she can marry one of the husband candidates. But she decides that she wants to marry Rito in order to stay on Earth. Commander Zastin has been ordered to bring Lala back and has already battled Rito. He reports to the emperor that Rito would be suited to marry Lala, after hearing Rito, who was actually defending himself instead of Lala, says that marriage is impossible unless it is with the person you love. Lala truly falls in love with Rito and decides that she wants to marry Rito after hearing what he said. Her father decides that, if Rito is able to protect Lala from her fiancés, then he can marry her, but if Rito cannot protect Lala from her other fiancés and meet the king's expectations, Lala's father will kill Rito and destroy the Earth.

Before you even consider reading To LOVE-Ru, there's one thing that you need to understand:

It's an ecchi, and if you dislike the genre, there is no way in hell you'll like this one. It's probably the most typical ecchi out there, and it does everything only an ecchi could do, and that's the whole point of it. So if you do dislike this type of manga, then it's best not to read it.

Warning: Very minor spoilers on chapter 1.

Story - 7/10:
Our protagonist, Yuuki Rito, is a high school student who is usually despised due to the product of his misfortune. For some unknown reason (other read more

Alright at first I need to say, this is one of my fav manga's but I will judge pretty strict so...

At first a normal story will start, well it's what you call normal I mean who meets a princess from a other planet, well Rito does meet the beautiful Lala Satalin, who did run away from a marriege on her own planet, when she knows him better she falls in love with him... but Rito falls for Haruna, a shy girl that he knows from when he was little... after some chapters this story will a little disappear and there will be random story's about read more

To-LOVE-Ru is a Harem, Sci-fi, Romantic, Comedy that gives off the initial feel of an idiotic Rom/Com nevertheless it is still an entertaining read. If you feel like having a laugh then this never-ending manga is worth checking out.

It’s basically about a high school boy (Rito Yuuki) who is forced into becoming a marriage candidate for an alien girl (Lala). It begins with him protecting her from the various marriage candidates’ confrontations but soon after that finishes, the story moves onto the typical high school Rom/Com, full of idiotic sci-fi elements and every shounen Rom/Com cliché imaginable (e.g. misunderstandings). Sure if you enjoy these type read more

To-LOVE-Ru is the typical shounen harem, but has some flaws, which made the overall quality worse.

Story: this manga has, like most harem no real story, except for the love between the main characters. This made it overall less interesting, but the comedy made up for it. But the biggest flaw is the fanservice. It was just too much. You'll not find a single chapter without Rito groping breasts, a butt or seeing a girl naked/in underwear, not a single one. What's also damaging the plot are all this one-shots. A manga such as this should have more of these small arc, but To-LOVE-Ru had read more

Manga: Ichigo 100%
Two stories where the main character is a total failure with chics and suddenly he got the most beautiful girls behind him and can't decide for one of them.
Both has a good sense of humor and moments where accidentally the main character gets involved with the girls in embarrasing/sexualy situations.

Manga: Mayoi Neko Overrun!
Both manga is created by Yabuki Kentarou, and judging from the art, you don't get nothing less!

The storyline also involved ecchi, romance, harem and comedy. except for "normal" people in it.

read it if you want to know how similar this is!~

Manga: Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou
Both main characters have very bad luck and his life is changed because of an alien girl (not to mention the ecchi very similar) 
reportRecommended by Fagner_O_Costa
Manga: Rosario to Vampire
Both of this manga's are about a boy who is meets a beautiful girl, and thus dragging even more girls to him like a magnet! The fact is that in To-LOVE-Ru, the leading character is different, but with time he does change just like Tskune. He becomes a man who can stand up for himself and for the sake of others as well.

Manga: Ayu Mayu
The main males character look very alike and the character designs feels very similar as well. 
reportRecommended by LawinatorEX
Manga: Sora no Otoshimono
Both involve 1 boy and several beautiful girls. Tomoki is like Rito in their way of not wanting to get involved but turns responsible when needed. While the girls in both manga are new to human emotion which adds to the fun. Plenty of fan service and characters turn loli during comical events.
