So carry on reading to see our latest recommendations of anime like High School DxD.

1. Trinity Seven

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: October 2014 - December 2014

Arata Kasuga's world is not quite what it seems, a fabrication put together by a powerful Grimoire left behind by his cousin Hijiri, designed to protect him from himself. Unknown to him, Arata holds the potential to become the next magic king, a power which is subconsciously ripping the world apart. After being 'saved' by Lilith, a teacher from the Royal Biblia Academy, Arata chooses to ignore her order to hand over the Grimoire and instead to become a student at the academy. Now trying to work out what he is and where Hijiri has gone, the only advice Arata has to go on is to assemble the Trinity Seven, the academy's top mages, to help him out.

Issei and Arata, both perverted protagonists, though debatably Arata is somewhat more proficient at the art. The two are quite incapable of hiding their carnal desires and have no trouble getting into a myriad of erotic encounters. Both of them are of course the de facto most powerful character in the series, managing to boost their way out of any situation. The main difference between the two is largely that Trinity Seven considers itself a bit classier than High School DxD, with a more nuanced art style and way of presenting its ecchi moments. If you liked High School DxD then check out Trinity Seven for a different twist on a similar idea.

2. Shinmai Maou no Testament (The Testament of Sister New Devil)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 2015 - March 2015

Basara is a lucky guy, acquiring two cute new step sisters just as his dad leaves on a trip. Only these little devils aren't what they seem, revealing themselves to be the daughter of the demon king and her succubus aide. But Basara has his own secrets, being a former hero himself, as the son of one of the world's most powerful heroes. After finding out that the two girls are being hunted down by their own people, Basara agrees to protect them both. They are his sisters after all.

Shinmai Maou no Testament is basically High School DxD 2.0, you've got demons, magic battles, borderline hentai, everything you could ever wish for in an ecchi series really. The only real standout difference is the characters' personalities, with Basara being much more mature than Issei and the girls varying a lot as well. There isn't much more to add really, it feels very much like Shinmai Maou no Testament was adapted because of High School DxD's success with the two being so similar in every regard. If you've run out of High School DxD to watch then we'd recommend moving straight on to Shinmai Maou for more excellent ecchi action.

3. Masou Gakuen HxH (Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2016 - September 2016

When strange robot-like invaders appeared from another world and humanity's weapons prove to be pathetically ineffective at putting up a resistance, it's time for a change of tactic. Schools like Ataraxia defense academy are now training Heart Hybrid Gear users to fight the alien menace, with our protagonist Hida Kizuna being one of the latest recruits. But Kizuna is no ordinary HHG user, with his special talent being to power up other users via erotic methods. Now on a team with the academy's top 3 beautiful girls, it's his job to keep them in prime condition.

Masou Gakuen HxH is next in the line of action harem shows that we've seen a lot of recently, but if there's one thing it does better than many of it's predecessors, it's hot ecchi action. Rather than being powered up by girls as in Issei's case, we have Kizuna powering the girls up, via the same lewd methods. Masou Gakuen HxH is certainly steamier than High School DxD, with most of the scenes being one slip away from an 18+ rating, though DxD does provide some loli fan service that HxH is currently missing out on.

Masou Gakuen HxH particularly focuses on girls with obscenely large chests, so if the Rias-Akeno double team combo was one of your favourites, then the HxH maidens will not disappoint. Masou Gakuen HxH is one of the newest series that any fan of High School DxD should be able to enjoy.

4. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (Demon King Daimao)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2010 - June 2010

Akuto Sai's new high school life takes a brick to the neck with the revelation that he's prophesied to become the next Demon King, something which many other students are obviously concerned about. With his plans to become a high priest very much out of the window, his new focus is to control his emerging demonic powers and to try and use them for good rather than evil. With a government robot girl, a quirky redhead, and a strict samurai tsundere constantly keeping an eye on him, it's certainly in his best interests to not turn into a mad demon lord.

Once again proving demons aren't so bad afterall, Sai is the series' Issei, with his overpowered demon abilities and friendly dragon buddy. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou has a bit of an older feel to it than High School DxD, with the ecchi being delicious but not quite as over the top. Besides ecchi the two both have some great action throughout, with plenty of weird creatures, magic, and ripped clothing. Wait, we're back to ecchi there. Wrapping itself up quite nicely in 12 episodes, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou is one of the few harem series to give a feeling of closure, so if you're after something with magic and cute girls that's a bit shorter than DxD you should give it a shot.

5. Sora no Otoshimono (Heaven's Lost Property)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: October 2009 - December 2009

In the sky above Tomoki Sakurai's town is an anomaly: something is there, but no one knows what. One day while waiting to meet up with someone outside of town, Tomoki is hit by a girl falling from the sky. A surprisingly curvaceous, angel winged girl. Now with a new woman in his life, who insists on calling him master, he and his friends at the New World Discovery Club have one more reason to find out what on earth the anomaly in the sky is, and where she came from. But as they ponder that, more angels are coming down to take back their lost property by any means necessary.

Tomoki's perverted antics make Issei look like an amateur, with his life itself being dedicated to seeing panties. Sora no Otoshimono's story is a sort of reversal of High School DxD's, with angel girls coming to our world rather than humans going into the demon world. Despite this, both shows have a similar atmosphere, with a lot of comedy, some awesome battles scenes, plenty of ecchi, and behind it all a solid story. Although Sora no Otoshimono can suddenly get very serious, a majority of the show is pure comedy and relentless panty shots. If you've seen High School DxD yet somehow avoided Sora no Otoshimono, now is the time to take a look.

6. Seikon no Qwaser (The Qwaser of Stigmata)

  • Episodes: 24
  • Aired: January 2010 - June 2010

On their way home after an unpleasant day at school Mafuyu Oribe and Tomo Yamanobe come across a young, white-haired boy who has collapsed, taking him back to their house. That night, the nearby chapel is attacked by a serial killer, responsible for countless deaths in the area, and despite her best efforts, Mafuyu is unable to defend it against the magic-wielding attacker. Moments before being sliced to pieces, though, the boy from before appears, saving her and defeating the attacker. He reveals himself to be a Qwaser, one who can manipulate elements with the power of Soma, a substance found in the breasts of women. Now the boy, named Sasha, has for some reason transferred into their class at school, which may or may not be something to be concerned about.

The focus on breasts is certainly the biggest thing High School DxD and Seikon no Qwaser have in common, with both protagonists "using" them to gain their incredible powers. This, of course, means plenty of ecchi and oppai galore, with Qwaser using every opportunity to rip up clothing or provide glorious panty shots. Although sharing the ecchi and action aspects, Seikon no Qwaser definitely has a darker and more serious feel to it, lacking some of the wackiness of High School DxD. If you're a shameless lover of boobs, Seikon no Qwaser will certainly provide you with what you're after once you're done with DxD.

Final Thoughts

As a good all around ecchi harem series, there are plenty of great shows that have something in common with High School DxD. Additionally, it's not unusual to see demons, the church, or massive breasts as themes in harem shows, and it doesn't' take a genius to figure out why. While they're all like High School DxD in some aspect, the shows we've listed are honestly great series in their own right, with many spawning sequels and having their own sizable fan base. So if you fancy yourself as an ecchi connoisseur, we'd recommend working your way through from one to six.

So which series off the list is your favourite? Or rather, which would you recommend to a fan of High School DxD? Better yet, if you've got some ideas of your own, let us know in the comments because we'd love to hear them!

She does this by leeching off his lecherous spirit, sucking him dry (no pun intended).
