The ecchi is an element of anime that appeals to many viewers, and although some series put it on for the simple fact of having moments a little ‘tono suddenitos‘, there are others who are real specialists. A clear example of this is “High School DxD”, which is surely the greatest historical success when it comes to combining ecchi, high school and action fantasy. For this reason, I am here today to bring you a series of alternatives that will surely convince you if you are a fan of “High School DxD”.

Shinmai Maou no will

“High School DxD” and “Shinmai Maou no Testament” are Two sides of the same coinand it is very easy to explain why: while in the first anime is the male character who must accept the orders and wishes of the female demon, in the second it is the opposite, with the male having control of the situation and the servitude of the demon. As if this parallel wasn’t enough, the two have “coincidences” such as the presence of special powers (again derived from the participation of demons in both) as well as the fact that one of the main characters is a demon. with red hair. Honestly, there’s little reason not to like “Shinmai Maou no Testament” if you enjoyed “High School DxD.”

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai

What is very similar to “High School DxD” and “Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai” is that in both cases they have a Main male character who is more excited than an iron, who finds himself thrust overnight into a world of special powers where he clearly does not belong. On the other hand, while in “High School DxD”, we see this as a second chance in Issei’s life, now having to navigate between angels and demons, in the case of “Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai “its protagonist, Ryousuke, will form a contract with a Shinigami whereby he will allow her sexual desires to become power for her. Come on, the typical thing that happens to anyone on a Sunday afternoon.

high school of the dead

Another classic among high school ecchi anime, obviously with a harem flavor. In “Highschool of the Dead” we put aside the idea of ​​angels and demons as well as super powers to meet the undead of passion. Indeed, the story of this anime places a male protagonist in a zombie apocalypse situation which he must survive while being accompanied by a gang of very attractive girls. The “setting” may change a bit, but really the paranormal ecchi-harem tone is still very present in this alternative to “High School DxD”.

trinity seven

Another anime in which the paranormal quickly takes over, in this case making that the protagonist’s town suddenly disappears overnight… although there is a solution. Yes, as in “High School DxD”, “Trinity Seven” presents a context in which we will find fights with special powers, offbeat jokes and other elements that will give rise to another harem. On the other hand, it is possible that in this case we find the construction of said harem a little more “elaborate” than that of other similar animes, since in the end all this will revolve around the Royal Bible Academy and what Arata, its protagonist, achieves within its limits.

And in what will also remind more than one “Urusei Yatsura” I also leave you with “To LOVE-Ru”, another well-known ecchi which in this case changes the daemons from “High School DxD” to an alien race. Indeed, this story will revolve around how the life of Rito, a perfectly normal boy who has actually confessed his lifelong love, changes completely when Lala Satalin Deviluke, an alien princess, suddenly lands next to him as he takes a bath.. Thus, Rito’s life will begin to switch between unreal love and heartbreak.

One of the best alternatives you will find for High School DxD


Another anime in which the presence of aliens to completely change the life of the protagonist. Similar to “High School DxD”, we have that in “Sekirei”, the encounter with the aforementioned female character will awaken in the male protagonist a series of latent abilities who were “asleep” until then. Likewise, this alien, who belongs to a species known precisely as “Sekirei”, will cause Minato (the protagonist) to be part of a competition between “Sekireis” that will be much riskier than everything seemed to indicate. originally.

Kore wa Zombie desu ka?

Although with obvious ecchi and harem elements, what really strikes one of “Kore wa Zombie desu ka?” it is the strength of its supernatural aspects. Basically, the story revolves around a male character who is one day brutally murdered… only to be resurrected by a female magician who practices necromancy. With a “new life” that now makes him immortal, the protagonist searches for his killer until he encounters a girl who hunts “Megalo”, a kind of supernatural monster. When the girl tries to erase herself from the protagonist’s memories, he ends up absorbing all of his magical powers, thus making him succeed in his work.

Sora no Otoshimono

And finally, I return to the theme of angels and demons, dwelling here more on the former than on the latter. Because indeed, basically the story of “Sora no Otoshimono“will revolve around how Tomoki and the rest of the New World Discovery Club come into contact with the Angeloids, entities that descend from the sky and for which there is currently no scientific explanation. On the other hand, beyond the paranormal theme, this anime also includes fantastic fights as well as a series of cute girls that will hover around the protagonist.

And so far what I think has remained as a good set of ecchi/harem anime with fantastic touches and that on more than one occasion moves on those ideas of angels and demons. Obviously each one has its peculiarities and it is clear that it depends on the person who will end up liking one proposal more than another, but in general I would say that all are alternatives to consider in case you have already enjoyed “High School DxD”.
