3 Best Ecchi Anime

3 Best Ecchi Anime

Ecchi Anime

Last year for Valentine’s Day I wrote about 3 Wholesome Romance Anime, so it’s only fair that I write something to celebrate Single’s Awareness Day this year. Also, I didn’t want to write about “3 More Wholesome Romance Anime” and didn’t know what else to write.

But let’s be honest, that’s probably going to be next year’s Valentine’s Day post.

So, if you don’t already know what ecchi is, I suggest you check out this article on ecchi in anime first, then come back here. But today we’re not merely discussing ecchi as it’s used in anime. No, today we’re discussing three of my highest rated anime which focus on ecchi.

A lot of series have ecchi in them, but an ecchi series puts the ecchi front and center — it’s the reason you’d watch these series in the first place. So no, the Monogatari series will not be featured in this post. Yes, it has ecchi, but no, it’s not an ecchi anime.

Also, as one final note before we get into the list, the anime on this list are all censored. Uncensored ecchi series do exist, but those fall into a gray area between ecchi and hentai, so they’re not included.

1. Kiss x Sis

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but Kiss x Sis is the best ecchi anime I’ve watched so far. The reason for this, however, is because there’s actually sort of two Kiss x Sis anime. There’s the TV series, which is good in its own right, and there’s the OVA series which is much better.

But, it’s not as if these two anime are separate entities. They’re actually intertwined, much like Non Non Biyori and Non Non Biyori Repeat. If you plan to watch this series in the chronological order, you’ll be switching back and forth between the two anime every few episodes.

And if you’re interested in the watch order for Kiss x Sis, it can be found over in my full review of the series.

So, what makes Kiss x Sis the best ecchi I’ve seen? For starters, it simply has the best ecchi scenes. They may not always be the most revealing scenes, but they’re potentially the most suggestive. The third entry on this list might have more suggestive scenes, but that one also includes comedy in the scenes, so they aren’t straight ecchi.

The other reason Kiss x Sis is the best is because it has the best girls. Although I’m definitely on #TeamRiko, both Ako and Riko are pretty great “heroines” if you can even call them that. And just about all the side characters are good too.

I don’t really think you can go wrong picking any of the girls as your favorite, but I’ll definitely judge you more depending on who you choose.

2. Miru Tights

Miru Tights is definitely the niche entry on this list, but hear me out — who doesn’t like a cute girl in tights? And in this series we get three of them (and their teacher who is low key the best character).

Now, I know some of you might be thinking that Miru Tights doesn’t really count as an ecchi because it isn’t as sexually suggestive as something like Kiss x Sis, but that doesn’t actually take away from the series. Yes, the girls are important, but the main focus of this series is really on the tights.

Also, as a bonus, if you’re into nice art, and occasionally really nice animation, then you might like this series even more. The picture below doesn’t really give this series justice, so just know that when it wants to look really nice, it does.

Miru Tights also has an OVA which I actually just watched before writing this post. The original plan was to do a review solely on the single episode of the OVA today, but after watching it I realized there just wasn’t enough content to go off of.

Oh, and the reason for that, if you aren’t already aware, is that Miru Tights episodes are only 4 minutes long. That’s right, this is an ecchi series you can finish (including the OVA) in under an hour.

3. To LOVE-Ru

I think a lot of people probably expected To LOVE-Ru to be in first position on this list, and that’s a fair expectation. To LOVE-Ru is definitely a good ecchi series, and it has some great comedy as well if that’s something you’re looking for.

However, I’ve actually only seen the first season of the series, which is why it’s not farther up. I hear that the third season is the best one, and from the little I’ve seen of it that sounds accurate. But the first season wasn’t great, it was just good.

And although it’s more sexually suggestive than Kiss x Sis at times, as I mentioned, it uses a lot of comedy in those scenes as well. So while it is a heavily ecchi series, the ecchi is used more for comedic purposes than anything else.

Also, since I’ve only seen the first season, I think I have to say Lala is the best girl by default. I don’t actually remember the other girls from this series aside from Darkness, but Darkness doesn’t do much in season 1. Momo is clearly a high tier girl as well, but she only comes into the series later on.

Who knows, maybe by Valentine’s 2021 I’ll have seen the second and third seasons of To LOVE-Ru and I’ll have more to say about it then.

Conclusion

Have you seen these three ecchi anime already? If so, how would you rank them? And what’s your favorite ecchi anime not featured on this list? Based on my site’s analytics, I know a lot of you like Why the hell are you here, Teacher?!, but I have to say that one is pretty average — especially considering the censored version basically censors the entire screen.
