Tears to Tiara

While technically a harem anime with the protagonist as Arawn (white haired dude who is a fallen angel aged in 1000s of years), The story is more about Arawn trying to establish a kingdom (England) with Arthur (Brown Haired guy) as king, while they fight the empire (Rome). This is fiction drawn from history and draws from Roman, British, and Irish mythology.


Wow this sounds right up my alley. Adding it to my list

The other one I mentioned, Utawarerumono, is by the same creators. Both series started off as Final Fantasy Tactics style strategy-rpgs with dating sim/ero-game elements.

There is a Tears to Tiara 2 (I think for Vita), I've only seen a little of it, but from what I have seen it kind of has sunken into the formula of being very typical teenage protagonist with moe harem.

Utawarerumono has some romance, actually it's an OTP romance between the protagonist Hakuoro and the main heroine Eruru. But the story itself is actually more reminiscent of Gensou Suikoden.

Tears to Tiara on the other hand primarily focuses around Arawn, Arthur, and another character called Gaius (based around Caeser). The girls are mainly just a supporting cast.

Other than 6 Tactics is my favorite FF series. So I will probably enjoy them.

Oh yea, Total Eclipse is a good one. Underrated anime in my opinion.


Except I've heard it's a total mockery of the VN. I'd rather play the VN than watch it

Don't remember about Otaru, but he wasn't in school and was primarily working, also he had a harem full of robots. I think it's okay.

Hibiki was 16. However, Vandread was quite unique on all accounts so I think it's okay. Vandread was a kick ass anime btw. We rarely get that great a combination of emotion, action, and comedy these days. My favorite character had to be Bart, he was just kick ass, especially after he went bald. Also I think he is the only character I know that fell in love with a woman who was a man and still decided to love him/her even after finding out she/he was originally male.

UGH I feel so much nostalgia now. God I miss 90's early 2000 anime. It had a certain playful witty flavour to it that really only Gintama correctly reproduces these days.

Monster Musume will be fitting this, as all of the characters that actually have ages are adults and there's no schools anywhere

Not mention Vandread is a dark series without being in your face try hard grimdark like so many "dark" series nowadays are. Sure it looks like a squeaky clean fun time space mecha harem(which, btw, the actual harem is between Hibiki's Vanguard and Dita's, Meia's, and Jura's Dreads, as Jura is, like most women in the series, a lesbian and is in a dedicated relationship, and Meia at first out right hates Hibiki and then only becomes his friend, of the main group, Dita is the only romance option for Hibiki, so Vandread IS a harem show, just not one between the humans, but rather the robots), but when you think about it, like actually think about it, it is one fucked up reality they live in.

It's still one of my favourite Sci-Fi animes today. I loved their dystopian future, I loved how they handled the splitting of the genders, I loved the drama, I loved the comradery. I even remember, I think it was episode 5, when they found out Ezra was pregnant, that episode they played Louis Armstrong's "It's a Wonderful World." Despite the fact that it technically was a harem, (Don't forget that 4th girl from season 2 who was in love with Hibiki until she noticed he had a strong bond with Deeta) the anime in of itself was really so much more than that. It was the characters discovering who they themselves are. I would actually say it's a lot more like Outlaw Star than it is like Tenchi Muyo or anything like that.

Definitely more like Outlaw Star. Man late 90s/early 2000s had some truly amazing space-based sci-fi series. Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, Vandread.

But we're getting off topic here. :P

So let's get back on topic. I dunno if Vandread truly fits the asked requirements, but fuck it. It's one of my all time favorites, so see it regardless! It's some good shit, son!

Hand Maid May almost fits, though Cyberdoll May is 17 and Cyberdoll Rena is 9.

Tears to Tiara...sort of. The main character is definitely over 18 and he accidentally acquires a harem. The setting is fantasy Roman-era Ireland/Scotland. Not sure if you would categorize it as a 'harem show', though.


I don't consider this a harem due to only one of the women is seriously into the mc; and he technically acquires a whole team of friends who are both male and female. It started to look like a harem in the early episodes but went down a different path later on.

I'll throw in the Muv-Luv Alternative:Total Eclipse. It has definite harem aspects, most of the characters are adults (but not in the first two episodes).
I'm not sure that asking for adult characters is unreasonably restrictive. It shouldn't be, it's just that anime featuring adult characters and made for adults seems to be harder and harder to find these days.

check out golden time and denki-gai. Golden time takes place in college, whereas denki-gai is in a workplace where everyone, (minus fu-girl), is an adult. I would recommend both for a good non-high school harem. And although I haven't finished it yet, servantxservice may be up your ally.
