Hino Kahoko is part of the normal branch at her school, but there exists a music branch. The music branch students are usually the only ones to participate in the school’s annual music competition, but this year, Kahoko has met a fairy who has entered her into the music competition and given her a magical violin.
Perhaps the one reverse harem that comes to mind immediately when watching Magic-Kyun! Renaissance is La Corda D’Oro ~Primo Passo~, which is the first season of La Corda D’Oro if you haven’t seen it yet. The first thing you will notice is how Kahoko seems to be lacking in talent like Kohana, but she is surrounded by these talented musicians who seem to think that she’s got the talent to participate. However, the boys will teach Kahoko that while she may not believe it, she has real talent hidden beneath everything.
Kahoko helps each one of the bishounen in La Corda D’Oro ~Primo Passo~, discover something within themselves they would not have otherwise found out while they help Kahoko realize there’s more to her than she believes. There is no doubt that La Corda D’Oro ~Primo Passo~ is a lot like Magic-Kyun! Renaissance.

3. Fruits Basket
- Episodes: 26
- Aired: July 2001 - December 2001
Tohru was living with her grandfather after the loss of her other but when his home needed to be renovated, Tohru took to living in a tent outside. It was here where Tohru was found by her classmate Souma Yuki who invited her to stay with his family for the time being. Unfortunately, Tohru discovered the dark secret of the Souma while living there: members of the Souma family turn into animals of the Chinese zodiac when embraced by members of the opposite sex!
And now, we have Fruits Basket, which isn’t really a reverse harem nor is it a bishounen anime, but it shan’t be neglected! Like the others, Fruits Basket features Tohru, a girl who seems like your typical airhead, but in fact, she may be the key to healing the members of the Souma family who have been wrought with anguish since childhood. Tohru does not have talent in any way, but she has a lot of love, something that she is ready to give to anyone who needs it. Luckily, that is just what the members of the Souma family need.
However, underlying the rather lightheartedness that is Fruits Basket, there is more than meets the eye. Every character seems to have his or her own story and dark past. Whether it's love, loss, or feelings of abandonment, Tohru may be just the person to fix everything.

However, should Yui fail at rehabilitating these gods, they will all be stuck in this world for eternity!
Last but certainly not least, we bring to you Kamigami no Asobi which shares a similar storytelling technique as Magic-Kyun! Renaissance. You get to explore the relationship between the main character and each of the boys as Yui tries to draw them out of their shells to build a relationship with them, much the way Kohana does in Magic-Kyun! Renaissance. They both also possess supernatural aspects which take away from most of the slice of life elements. However, Kamigami no Asobi does feature some rather interesting backstories for many of the characters, including Hades. If you want to get to know any of the characters, well, you’ll have to watch and find out yourself.
