14+ Of The Best Ecchi Anime That Are Worth Considering

Ecchi isn’t my favorite anime genre. I won’t lie. But there are some solid shows that are worth their weight in gold.

Some are even my favorites and put clever spins on:

  • Fan service
  • Ecchi
  • Lewd scenes

Or anything else associated with Ecchi anime themes and content.

Here’s some recommendations.

 

Ecchi Anime Worth Watching:

 

1. Shimoneta

Shimoneta is that one anime I thought looked too weird, looking from the outside in. But it’s made by J.C Staff so I gave it a go.

I never looked back.

Shimoneta feels like an anime that takes the piss out of SJW culture in the USA. The reason being the theme is about a society where dirty jokes and lewdness is consider “filthy”.

You can even be locked up by the decency police and thrown in jail for doing it.

If you want a good laugh and a Ecchi anime that’s creative and doesn’t hold back, try this.


2. How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend

How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend is a good title for an anime. It’s why I was drawn to it in the first place.

It’s about the main character: Tomoya, and his desire to create a dating sim game as an Otaku.

3 girls end up joining him and helping him create this game. The girls are also Otakus with their own careers (authors, etc). Except for one.

Breaking the 4th wall, comedic elements, slice of life and a good mix of characters and personalities.

It’s different.

 

3. Kill La Kill

Kill La Kill is one of my highest rated Ecchi anime of all time. And it’s not surprising why when you see how it plays out.

Think of it like Gintama or Konosuba. Both of these comedy anime point fingers at cliches and tropes in anime, and then turn that into an art.

Kill La Kill is similar. So many tropes and cliches are made fun of to the extreme, especially Ecchi style cliches. And it turns it into a work of art and differentiates itself from the crowd.

If you’re into DBZ or action anime of that nature, Kill La Kill delivers the goods on top of everything else.

4. Uzaki Chan Wants To Hang Out

Uzaki Chan Wants To Hang Out isn’t my favorite Ecchi anime in the slightest. I’d be lying to say that.

I was mostly into it for the drama it caused, and the controversy it stirred. But after watching it, the truth is it’s not a bad show.

It’s decent and is something to watch if you want a “slice of life” style of Ecchi in your life.

The main theme is an introvert who’s being pestered by an extrovert, and how they end up “hanging out” together.

The long and short of it.

5. Food Wars

Food Wars is an Ecchi I’ve rated the highest of any, probably. Even more than Kill La Kill.

It’s not the type of anime that can be compared to others, even if you’re talking about anime in general.

The food aspect, the chefs, the competitive spirit, and the mix of shonen is something different.

The way they exaggerated reactions to food that tastes good, and somehow turns it into fan service (and a work of art) is special.

 

6. Asterisk War

Asterisk War seems to be a polarizing anime.

Some people really love it. Others think it’s a rip off from Chilvary Of A Failed Knight.

And many hate it.

But once you get through the first half or so of the first season, Asterisk War starts to climb in quality.

The cliches start to fade away gradually, the action gets better, and the story gets slightly darker and picks itself up.

Asterisk War is about tournaments and Genestella’s (humans with supernatural abilities) who compete for the #1 spot.

 

7. Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends

Haganai is an anime you don’t hear too often in the Ecchi crowd. Or even in the slice of life/comedy crowd these days.

It’s an anime about making friends. 2 main characters create “the neighbours club” and begin to make more friends from that point forward.

Gradually the anime starts to highlight bullying, loneliness, and obviously fan service where it counts.

Great protagonist.

8. Monogatari

Monogatari anime ecchi

Monogatari is a classic from the last decade, made by studio SHAFT. The same studio behind Madoka Magica and Nisekoi.

The anime is a lot of things, vampires being one of them. With some of the heaviest dialogue you’ll ever see in an anime.

Talking, conversation and dialogue is Monogatari‘s strong point. And it does it without boring you to death.

If you never thought Ecchi could be thought provoking, Monogatari will prove you wrong.

 

9. Sankarea: Undying Love

Sankarea Undying Love ecchi

Sankarea is a weird anime, there’s no other way around it.

The main character: Chihiro is a guy who wants a zombie girlfriend because normal girls don’t do it for him.

Realistically it’s impossible, but this anime is also a supernatural horror and he ends up having his wish come true.

For a short series (and a strange one) it’s surprisingly good. With some strong themes that will make your stomach turn.

 

10. How Not To Summon A Demon Lord

I never thought I’d enjoy this anime as much as I did, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be.

The anime starts out as cliche as any, with the main character being transported to another world. And 2 girls on his side in no time at all.

For an Ecchi it goes pretty far with its fan service and gives no f*cks which is clear by what its willing to do.

A 2nd season is expected to come out in 2021.

11. Ishuzoku Reviewers

Ishuzoku Reviewers takes things to the extreme, just like Kill La Kill or How Not To Summon A Demon Lord.

In fact – Ishuzoku Reviewers goes further than any anime we’ve ever seen. And the controversy proved it.

With main characters who travel to brothels, get busy with the ladies, and then review those brothels for the f*ck of it, this is an anime series like nothing you’ll ever come across.

It appeals to every fetish as well.

 

12. How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?

An anime about lifting dumbbells, working out in the gym, and fan service from both men and women? That’s what How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift comes down to in a nutshell.

From the hilarious tutorials on keeping fit, the right foods to eat, and how to use gym equipment, this anime educates you on being healthy.

It does it in a silly, funny way with tons of comedy (and education) to make the series unique.

 

13. No Game No Life

No Game No Life is a famous Isekai series revolving around games, chess and two main characters who are siblings.

Strategy, tactics, and meaningful speeches is something you can expect if you watch this anime.

It’s one of the most colorful, bright and cheerful looking anime in the Ecchi genre.

 

14. To Love Ru

To Love Ru ecchi

To Love Ru is a shameless Ecchi series for its fan service, cliches, and “bland” MC type of a character.

One of the main girls is actually an Alien, unlike other Ecchi shows.

It’s a basic series, but one of the most relevant and popular in the genre. So I had to mention it.

There’s a lot of material to get through.

 

Other Ecchi Anime:

  • High School DxD.
  • Kiss x Sis.
  • Chobits.
  • The Familiar Of Zero.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Highschool Of The Dead.
  • In Another World With My Smartphone.
  • Sekirei.
  • Campione.
