Chitose Hitotose was orphaned at a young age and is now in high school. He yearns for a family and a place to belong, but his long years of independence and isolation are setting his feet on a dangerous path. What is the solution that his teachers conceive? He needs a mother... but it's not just one, but five "Mamas!"

With their maternal instincts in overdrive and mysterious pasts, can Chitose learn the lesson of happiness?

Sister Princess

Sister Princess

Wakura is so confident of getting into his chosen high school that he stops taking his tests. Unfortunately, he gets every question on his entrance exam wrong, leaving him to be thrown into a truck, put on a boat and then taken to Promised Island. There, he finds out that he was entered, by recommendation into a high school, not to mention he has twelve adopted sisters on the island that will be attending with him! More than anything Wakura wants to get off the island and get back to his old life, but eventually his sisters help him feel welcome. Together, Wakaru begins his journey of living and growing up with his twelve cute sisters.

It's every guy's fantasy.... to be living (as the sole guy) under one roof surrounded by gorgeous women who loves you and wants to pamper you and is ready to cater to your every need.... it's been done numerous times in the past but I guess some of us just can't get enough of it! They both have a consistently light and funny overtone. Allthough nothing of real great importance happens in any of these two animes, watching the day to day lives of the male protagonist trying to live his life together with a bunch of women usually leads to often humorous situations. Overall I liked happy lesson better because I thought it was funnier and the characters were more interesting but if you like one, you'll probably like the other as well. Or if you are a fan of this type of genre then I'm sure that you will definitely like these two series!

Tenchi Muyo! GXP

Tenchi Muyo! GXP

Seina Yamada is incredibly unlucky; everything he touches is horribly destroyed. One day while visiting his sempai Tenchi's house, he is mistaken for the man by a member of the Galaxy Police Force and becomes inducted into the force. However, his terrible luck gives him an advantage in his new role: Seina encounters pirates at every turn, allowing his GXP comrades to capture many of the galaxy's worst criminals! Armed with a ship cloned from Ryo-Oh-Ki, Seina sets forth with his mostly female companions to defeat the sinister Barta pirates. Only one question remains: which is more important - capturing criminals or capturing hearts?

Both Happy Lesson and Tenchi Muyo! GXP feature a teenager who lives with a harem of female teachers. Neither of the series is good (though Tenchi Muyo! GXP might be slightly better), but if you liked one of them, then you might actually like the other one too.

Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki

Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki

Things rapidly get worse for Tenchi when the royal princess Ayeka, cute Sasami, ditzy galaxy police agent Mihoshi and scientifically insane Washu crash land in his back garden to join the mayhem.

My personal favorite Tenchi Muyo! is my recommendation to watch if you liked Happy Lesson. Both are a comedy/romance anime with 1 guy surrounded by numerous females in one way or another attracted to him. This series will make you laugh and blush at the same time. While Tenchi Muyo! adds a more fantasy like approach to it, they will both fullfil your hunger for romance and comedy. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Happy Lesson and Urusei Yatsura both feature a main character that is the unwilling recipient of female affection. The comedy peaks when the same main characters unwittingly ignite the jealous rage of their female acquaintances by showering their attentions on other girls. Cute characters, funny anime, what more do you want?
