I often am shy to admit it, but I bloody love To Love Ru. It's a cheesy harem anime that's full of fanservice, but whenever I watch it, it makes me feel happy. There's a debt to the story beyond facevalue. It's hard to explain, but I can relate to what many of the characters experience and I can't help but smile at many of the adorable situations they get into.

What about all of you?

What other anime make you feel the same way?

Manyuu Hikenchou, that anime was literally fan service in any way, but I really loved the story and the fan service added to it.

My Bride is a Mermaid is the most cliche anime series ever but it was the second anime I ever watched so all the cliches were new to me and to me it was the most creative and funny thing ever.

Be ashamed--ASHAMED--of being a To Love Ru fan if you have never seen a frame of Urusei Yatsura. (The show that so founded the 90's birth of anime in the US, our proto-fandom of it was even culturally parodied in one anime. )

TLR was quickly made to cash in the 20th-anniversary nostalgia for UY, but was so insultingly dumbed-down a version of "what grownup fans remembered as kids" from the series, it's downright cheap:
In UY, for example, Lum is an alien oni-girl with cute tiger skins and horns; in TLR, Lala comes from the "Devil planet", and has a forked tail...Yeah, that's original.

But UY took the "Horny teen and alien 'fiance'", and just turned it into free-form jazz:
Imagine TLR crossed with the screwball every-direction geek-refs of Sgt. Frog, given the crazy Rumiko Takahashi ensemble cast of Ranma 1/2, and delivered with the silly all-out abandon of the first Project A-Ko movie.
(Not to mention, UY's "horny teen" Ataru Moroboshi wasn't a geeky harem-nosebleeder, but was.....sort of the founding patron-saint champion of all Horny Anime Teens. He had style, where the hero of "Heaven's Lost Property", for example, did not.)

Being a TLR fan is a sad lesson in what can happen to anime fans if they don't study the classics.

Lots of people like the harem trope or else they wouldn't continue to get made.

To love Ru is one of the better harem/ecchi based anime out there imo.

I have a few favorite harem/ecchi based anime i really enjoy.

To Love Ru
Ranma 1/2
A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd
Samurai Harem...lol

The fandom in the 90s was a result of DBZ, Sailor Moon, and Gundam tho.

And owes a lot to several decades of work of US anime fans.

To Love Ru is fantastic.

I love the harem ecchi anime that go over the top with perverted humor. They make me happy, just like you said.

Also anime boob physics (or lack thereof) is always entertaining to watch.

Further back, friend--I was one of those fans, in the college-club back rooms that you owe those "several decades" to.
Back when Sailor Moon was just an anomaly on a few syndicated stations, anime fandom in the US first became national when AnimEigo started the UY VHS of the Month Club. By mail.
Up to that point, you were lucky if Bubblegum Crisis or You're Under Arrest got a commercial sub in comic-book stores.

(The parody, btw, was in Otaku no Video, where the mock "interviews" talk with one US anime fan living and working in Tokyo, and comically mistranslated to look like all underground late-80's/early-90's US anime fans were obsessed Lum stalkers.
We laughed, because at the time....it was SO TRUE. )

It's as deep as you want it to be, I suppose. I's mostly funny, but there's more to it if you're inclined to analyze.

I always enjoy cutesy love stories. Again, it makes me happy. That being said, In To Love Ru, there are multiple facets to each character's infatuation and I find that quite interesting from an interpersonal communications standpoint. Otherwise, personal growth and improvement is a recurring theme that I can relate to.

Bite me.

I really like Free! It's sort of reverse male harem.
Or that's how my friend who hates it describes it as.

Like anything in our day is original, everything has influences from something else, music, anime, tv shows, movies, ect ect.

Most anime is just recycled plots/tropes and the likes anyhow but that doesn't stop people from liking it.

The anime short Military! made me so happy with every episode.

I'd love to see more of it come out.
