Tenchi Masaki lives a quiet life helping his grandfather at the temple. Quiet, that is, until he accidentally unleashes a strange and beautiful space pirate from her 700-year-old prison. 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. Will Tenchi be able to shake off the unwanted romantic advances of these women, and what secret does his history hold?

Love Hina

Love Hina

Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

Another harem anime that has a similar comedy feel. There's no sci-fi, but expect even more slapstick, romantic situations, and over-the top hilarious characters.
Tenchi was one of the original ecchi "harem" anime and defined the genre of a (usually nice, shy, and bland) boy surrounded by exciting and attractive females. One of the most popular successors is Love Hina. Both of these series are humorous, unrealistic, and are almost guaranteed to feature at least one female appealing to the lonely otaku. These two particular harem series are also humorous, well-written, and have good enough art to appeal to other anime fans apart from lonely fanboys.

I am recommending Love Hina if you liked Tenchi Muyo! because they both have a similar plot. They are about a guy who gets drawn into living under a roof with a group of girls and him not knowing how to cope with it.

These anime have a few things in common, though one thing really stands out: no matter how hard the male tries, he is always in the middle of mayhem whether he is responsible for it or not. These are both romantic comedies, yet they are different in many ways. I promise that if you like one then you will like the other just as much - if not more.


One guy lives with loads of girls and has no idea what to do with any of them; Tenchi Muyo and Love Hina are definitely cut from the same comic cloth, both revolving around a reasonably normal young man and the massive disruption to his life once he meets the girl of his dreams.

Young Tenchi in TM finds an alien outlaw whose presence summons other alien princesses, all of whom end up living with him and trying to fit into his everyday life. Keitaro, in LH, has no prospects after failing to enter Tokyo U. He is drafted into the job of apartment manager by his absent grandmother Hina, having then to oversee a group of very different young ladies.

Both series have the expected fan-service, the occasional panty shot or mildly suggestive situation. But more importantly, both seem to focus on the immense power of friendship and deeper fellow feeling, even in the strangest of places. If you're interested in following the comic trials of young boys who flourish into men with the help of some unpredictable women, then both Tenchi and Hina are for you.


If you liked watching either Love Hina or Tenchi Muyo you might try the other. In both anime there is all-around craziness when one guy ends up living with several girls.


For Tenchi fans who enjoyed the comedy and romantic hijinx I would totally recommend Love Hina. Love Hina has a bit more of a focus on the romance aspect of things as there aren't any aliens or magical powers to uncover in its story. As a result, the series is all about romance and the comedy that ensues around it.

It's definitely must watch for any fans of Tenchi's romantic comedy angle.


Both Love Hina and Tenchi Muyo are about a guy who is surrounded by a bunch of beautiful women. Also both include romance and have very funny moments. I also think that the little black cat girls are a very obvious similarity between these two series.


Both LH and Tenchi Muyo have a teenage boy who is thrust into an awkward living situation with several teenage girls! While both young men try to stay focused on their previous goals, it seems almost impossible with all the new commotion in their lives. Each has the perfect recipe of adventure, comedy, and of course, teenage love.


A classic anime theme of 1 boy living with/near/around an assortment of beautiful women that are all in love with him. Many misadventures follow.


If you watched 1 out of the both you can see similarities in the characters and story.Basic plot is that a guy is stuck in a house with girls whom he has to decide who he has feelings for and most of the girls have a crush on him thus leading him into a love web.

Ah! My Goddess

Ah! My Goddess

Keiichi Morisato is just your average college student until one day, fate interjects as he makes a call for take-out food. Unknown to him, he reaches the Goddess Help Line, and contacts a goddess named Belldandy, who grants him a wish. Thinking it to be a joke, Keiichi wishes for her to be his girlfriend 'forever'.

Both series feature a girl coming out of nowhere. Though while Tenchi Muyo focusses omre on the superpowers of that girl, Ah My Goddess! is focuused more on the romance between the main character and the girl.

While the stories of Tenchi Muyo and AMG are rather different, I can see similarities between some characters. Skuld is a lot like Sasami. They're both light hearted and innocent and love their big sisters very much. Urd reminds me of Ryoko in appearance and in her stubbornness as well.

The plots also revolve around romance. While Tenchi Muyo tends to be funnier and less serious than Ah My Goddess, I believe you will appreciate both series.


Tenchi Muyo and Ah! My Goddess have the same general theme of an average joe suddenly becoming the object of affection for a powerful, not-human girl. While the plots are a little different, the humor is definitely similar. 

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures

Kazuki Yotsuga is able to see things that others can't; in his visions, giant robots battle it out in the streets, causing massive damage in their wake. Though his visions have made him an outcast from the rest of his peers, they have attracted the attention of Ken Sanada – a physicist who believes Kazuki’s visions are a gateway into a parallel world! He places Kazuki into one of his inventions and accidentally sends him to the parallel world in his visions, where he finds himself in the middle of a war for control of the world! Kazuki must now become a pilot of one of the robots in order to join the fight for peace, all the while trying to find his way back to his own world…

Tenchi Muyo and Dual both have the general theme of a boy with too many girlfriends!

The link between these two shows is Tenchi.  As both shows are made by the same people, Pioneer, they decided to recycled Tenchi's character design (look and personality) and put in a bunch of different girls and a mecha. You'll also see some other parallels when you near the end of both shows.


Dual is like a sillier version of Tenchi Muyo meets Evangellion. As a result, it has some great robot filled fight sequences and some laugh out loud comedic moments.

Photon: The Idiot Adventures

Photon: The Idiot Adventures

A troublesome girl named Aun has stolen her village's holy item and has run away to marry a rock star; and because this sort of thing has happened before, her adopted brother Photon, a slightly clueless boy with superhuman strength, has been sent after her. Along the way he stumbles upon a naked rebel named Keyne (who, consequently, is being chased by a pervert who can’t seem to keep his clothes on); and Photon, not knowing the culture of the girl, accidentally engages himself to be married to her. Now, through a series of unfortunate events, the fate of the galaxy is now in the hands of Photon and his band of idiots!

Some characters in this series are near-perfect duplications of eachoter. Both series contain some nudity and superpowers. Photon is slightly less space-aimed and has more and weirder humor. There is a much heavier romance aspect in Tenchi Muyo! though.

Harem animes in space. If you love off the wall antics, naked girls, incredible future technology, naked girls, fast-passed action, and (of course) naked girls, you'll love both theses series. Watch the unlikely protagonist battle insurmountable odds all while girls throw themselves at him.


Both have romance in them, and also both have big quantity of humor, although Photon has it in a more wicked way. Both do treat about space, and also contai some action. If you liked one you'll most definitely like the other, just give it a try and you won't be dissapointed.

Ranma 1/2 and Tenchi both have the similar comedic premise of a boy with way too many girlfriends.

If you like zany characters, love triangles (and sometimes love hexagons) then this anime is for you!!

Some memorable fight scenes in BOTH anime also...


Both anime centre around a main male character who is put into a lot of delicate situations because of the people around him, weather it be because of being hit on, out of jealousy or just because they don't like him. They have sillimar comedic styles which i found hillarious and they are both extremely entertaining to watch.
