Similar Anime to To LOVE-Ru!

1. DearS

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 11, 2004 – September 26, 2004

DearS is all men’s dream come true in one cute, harem anime. Hot alien babes accidentally crash on Earth and become your all-pleasing slave. The protagonist is a rude high school boy named Takeya; who is not welcoming of the idea of the alien race, DearS. One day he sees a female shivering behind some bushes and casually asks if she’s ok; turns out it was a naked DearS.

The alien girl collapses in the street and after Takeya saves her from getting run over by a truck he is suddenly stuck being the master of this helpless alien girl nicknamed, “Ren”. Even when Takeya is convinced DearS are only there to brainwash humans, he tries to teach the clueless, Ren, how to live like a regular human.

Just like To LOVE-Ru, this is a story about a normal high school boy who is unwillingly dragged into becoming an alien girl’s “lover”. The story is not so complicated to follow and it’s just filled with cute girls fighting each other for the main character’s attention while adding the mandatory fanservice here and there.


2. Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan (Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan)

  • Episodes: 4
  • Aired: March 13, 2005 – September 22, 2005

Sakura Kusakabe is just a regular junior high school boy that is aspiring to confess his love for Shizuki, his school classmate. One day he comes home only to find our angel winged protagonist, Dokuro-chan, naked in his room. Her purpose is clear, she needs to kill Sakura in order to save the future of women on Earth. She more than one time succeeds at this by swinging her giant club “Excalibolg” at Sakura every time she thinks he is onto something perverted.

After a graphic but funny death, Dokuro-chan always ends up reviving Sakura because deep down she knows he can be spared and the future can be changed. This anime is filled with gory, black comedy and some soft ecchi. The series itself is short and full of randomness but it is guaranteed to become one of your favorite harem anime.

Making the main character’s life a nightmare is what Dokuro-chan and Lala have in common. Although the characters are contrary beings, angel and demon; they both make a regular school boy’s life a living hell. Both girls show up out of nowhere in the main character’s house and wind up living together with him. Sakura, like Rito, both spend most of the time trying to confess their love to their crush and failing. Both main male characters find that the girls (Lala and Dokuro-chan) make their lives miserable.


3. Tenchi Muyou!

  • Episodes: 26
  • Aired: April 2, 1995 – September 24, 1995

Driven by curiosity, Tenchi Masaki goes into his family’s forbidden shrine. Despite being warned not to disturb the terrible demon that lived in the shrine, Tenchi, awakens the not so fearsome looking demon girl, Ryoko. After hearing the news of Ryoko’s whereabouts, Aeka; an alien princess from space, makes it her sole purpose to arrest this demon.

Following Aeka comes a whole lot of female characters that somehow connect to Ryoko and all end up falling for Tenchi. But why is this common human so popular among the girls? only that he possesses tremendous power to protect them… and the whole universe. This anime is a must see for all those who dig space girls, light ecchi and a good, complex plot.

Tenchi-Muyou! is like the base story of To LOVE-Ru but with a much better thought out story. Just like Sakura, the main character Tenchi ends up surrounded by a bunch of alien girls that create a problematic harem anime. Like Lala, Tenchi-Muyou!’s character, Aeka, is an alien princess that comes to earth looking for a human to marry; in her case, her long-lost brother?

4. Kami Nomi Zo Shiru Sekai (The World God Only Knows)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: October 7, 2010–December 23, 2010

Hell has a soul leak and needs to be fixed fast; rumor goes that on Earth, there is a powerful god-like human that captures any girl that he can grasp. Lucky for Elsie de Lute; the clumsy demon girl assigned to capture the lost souls, the capture god has answered her message! On the other side of the story we have Keima Katsuragi, an unusual otaku boy that only sees beauty in 2-D female characters from games. Keima shut his heart at anything that is not a digital world and has a set reputation of being a dating game god. One day he receives a mysterious email with a message that to his eyes looked like a whole new challenge so he decides to accept the deal.

After the email, almost instantly a joyful demon girl appears in front of him only to find out they were both mistaken. Elsie intends to capture real girl’s hearts in order to free the lost souls that inhabit inside of these girls and Keima is absolutely not agreeing with this but; too late. If Keima doesn't complete Elsie’s request, the necklace that randomly appeared on his neck will explode! so he has to do the impossible to get Elsie what she wants and is forced to work with her in order to live!

Another cute and positive, devil-like character like Lala. Elsie, has come to earth looking for a teenage boy! But in this case, this demon girl doesn't know that Keima was just a regular boy with a LOT of knowledge in dating sims. But just like Rito, Keima is forcefully doing what this other worldly girl asks him to do. Pretty girls in abundance and they all somehow fall for the main character! Another one just like To LOVE-Ru to join the comedy harem train.


5. Asobi Ni Iku Yo (Cat Planet Cuties)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 11, 2010 – September 26, 2010

This is the ordinary life of a high school boy named Kio Kakazu whose average life gets interrupted by an alien girl that just pops out of nowhere into his life. At his great-great grandfather's memorial party he randomly spots a girl named Eris, who happens to have cat ears and tail. Of course, thanks to all of the random boobie shots within the first 10 minutes of the anime, we can easily tell that this is totally a perverted ecchi. As the typical harem anime, a friendly conversation escalates quickly to the girl and the main character somehow waking up the next morning in the same bed and oops! I grabbed a boob! oh no! the girl I just met is half naked!

At some point this anime tries to introduce some light comedy and action which is weirdly spread out throughout the series while maintaining an ecchi atmosphere. This anime is set to be just a fun anime with a lot of sexy cat girls that want to play with guns, robots, and spaceships. Action battles, romance and a bunch of alien cat girls living together with the average teenage boy, what ever could go wrong?

Asobi Ni Iku Yo is like To LOVE-Ru because they both feature a bouncy and cute main character and side characters from outer space. Both anime start off with an action crossfire scene, like trying to hide that they are harems shows for the first couple of minutes. Both anime have great art and animation bringing you some nice top quality fan service.


6. Girls Bravo

  • Episodes: 11
  • Aired: July 5, 2004– December 27, 2004

A weak ,small boy by the name of Yukinari Sasaki has a girl phobia so strong that he actually developed an allergic reaction towards all females. All his life he was pushed around by the opposite sex so badly that he developed a skin rash if touched by any girl. One day he gets transported to an alien planet for no reason; where the majority of the inhabitants are girls. This being said all the girls are uncontrollably attracted to him but because of his touch activated allergy he tries to avoid all except one girl Miharu Sena Kanaka, who is our main female protagonist.

Yukinari for some reason is not allergic to Miharu at all but he is, of course, allergic to the rest of the alien girls. The anime is based on the daily life of this ordinary boy and the beautiful alien girl from the planet “Siren” he accidentally dragged back home to earth. This is a harem type anime where we can find comedy, ecchi, nudity and lots of double sensed jokes.

Just like Lala, another pink-haired, alien girl protagonist to the list. Both girls are the nightmare of our main male protagonist who just wants to get away from them. Young human boys are sure sweet targets for cheery, somewhat clumsy alien girls. Both male protagonists from To LOVE-Ru and Girls Bravo end up living together with these hot alien girls and somehow end up, by mistake, in a sexual-looking misunderstanding. With both protagonist girls being very voluptuous, we can ignore the fact of them being total air-heads and just sit back and enjoy some boobie screen time.


Looks like the universe is filled with hot sexy alien girls; what a great time to be alive, huh? most of the anime like To LOVE-Ru are plain off harem types with a vast amount of fan service. Harems mostly have subjects like erotic romance and comedy because, sexual frustration of other guys is usually funny. Altho most alien girls seem just plain air-heads; in the end, most of the good-hearted protagonists prove worthy of their respective roles as main characters in the story. While some stories may move your heart in the end, some of them exist just for plain giggles.

For sure, if you see this list of 6 anime like To LOVE-Ru, you’ll have seen boobs from all species of alien girls, all shapes and sizes so, if you’re a boob guy (or girl) these are the anime for you. If life was a harem show, which of these planets would you like to dock your ship in?
