6 Anime Like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Everyday Life with Monster Girls) [Updated Recommendations]

También puedes leer este artículo en: Español

Kimihito Kurusu is living alone after his parents moved to another country in Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou – or at least, he was alone, until the monster girls started showing up. It all started with Miia, a non-human girl showed into Kimihito’s life under the interspecies integration act in Japan. Miia is only the beginning, though, as her species tends to attract other kinds of strange girls into Kimihito’s life and home. Thus, his harem of monster girls is born, whether he wants it or not! Interspecies sex is technically banned, but there is a provisional marriage law on the table that would make it okay….just what will happen next?

6 Anime Like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou is an article that was previously published by Honey’s Anime. However, with how much new anime come out every year, it’s hardly fair to make articles like this the final copy and never update them! Some really great anime has come out in just the last two years that is similar to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, so we thought it was time for an update. All of the anime on this list will be from 2015 or later, and five of the six titles will be not mentioned on Honey’s previous list. They all still will feature elements that are similar to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou of course – supernatural girls, harems, ecchi, comedy, vulnerable main characters, and more. We hope at least one will capture your interest and you can enjoy an updated list!

Similar Anime to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou / Similar Anime to Everyday Life with Monster Girls

1. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!)

  • Episodes: 10
  • Aired: Jan. 2016 – Mar. 2016

Kazuma Satou is a NEET - he stays at home all day, rarely leaving his house, usually doing nothing but playing video games. Kono Subarashii Sekai no Shukufuku wo! begins with his untimely death, though, and a choice from a goddess named Aqua. He can either continue to heaven or start a new life in a fantasy world. Kazuma chooses the latter, but will it really be the best choice? He is given the chance to choose one item to aid him on his future questions, but he chooses Aqua. Too bad she can't do anything! Can the two even begin to defeat the demon king they are meant to kill or are they going to just struggle forever just to pay for food and rent?

The biggest similarity between Kono Subarashii Sekai no Shukufuku wo! and Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou is the relationship between the main characters. Kazuma and Aqua are different species, just like Kimihito and his harem of girls. While Kazuma may only be dealing with one goddess instead of many different kinds of monsters, the two still have to adapt to the differences between one another as their partnership develops into a romance the same way Kimihito learns about each of his girls.

Kazuma also is living in a fantasy world full of so many different species of beautiful girls now, and while Kimihito's world is technically Japan, it's certainly not the Japan we know today but one also full of monster girls! So if you like the developing dynamic between a human and another species of girl from Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, check out Kono Subarashii Sekai no Shukufuku wo!!

2. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? (Invaders of the Rokujyoma!?)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jul. 2014 – Sep. 2014

In Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?, high school boy Koutarou is forced to find his own place to live when his father transferred away for work. He thinks he has found the perfect room with the perfect price - not to mention a beautiful landlady - but it turns out to be too good to be true! Shortly after moving in, several unexpected female guests begin to show up, including a ghost, an alien princess, and a magical girl!

All of these mysterious girls want Koutarou's apartment too, but he isn't about to give it up to them. So who will end up with the room in the end? Will it be Koutarou or one of these strange girls?

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha?! and Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou both have a lot of things in common. First and most obviously, they centre on a young human boy who finds himself with a harem of non-human girls against his will. And on top of that, the situations are quite similar! Koutarou is away from his family because his father has moved away for work, and Kimihito is alone because his parents are abroad. Both boys are alone and vulnerable when the girls move in to take advantage of them in various ways. The reasons may be different in both anime, but the basis of a harem of supernatural "monster girls" moving in with a human boy is the same. If you like that supernatural harem with a weak boy at the centre, check out Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?!


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

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan. 2015 – Mar. 2015

Toujou Basara has a very intense father in Shinmai Maou no Testament. Basara has always been an only child and his father always single, but it looks like things are about to change. Suddenly, his father announces that he will be getting remarried, but to a woman overseas that already has two daughters. The catch? The daughters are coming to live with Basara! And the even bigger catch? It turns out one of them is a demon-Lord-to-be, and the other is actually a succubus. Basara may have wanted a little sister his whole life, but this definitely wasn't what he had in mind…

Like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, the lead boy of Shinmai Maou no Testament finds himself left without any parents to fend for himself alone - or well, almost alone. Of course, he is joined by the monster girls! Kimihito may have a whole harem of them living with him, but the two that Basara has to deal with cause him more than enough trouble as it is. With one being a demon Lord and the other a succubus, Shinmai Maou no Testament is great for fans of darker supernatural girls especially.

Both anime have great ecchi sequences in them as well with the supernatural girls and the human boy. If you liked Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, and especially if you like the brother/step-sister trope in anime, Shinmai Maou no Testament is a great follow-up anime to enjoy. It's darker and more action-oriented, but the ecchi harem idea has a very similar feeling.

4. Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Apr. 2015 – Jun. 2015

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (here on out referred to as “DanMachi”) is a fantasy anime set in the fictional town of Orario. In the centre of the town is a strange dungeon full of all level of beasts and baddies – and of course, plenty of treasure and experience for the taking! Thus, Orario is full of adventurers and all manner of merchants and assistants that go alongside them, along with many gods and goddesses that sponsor and support their teams of adventurers who fight in their names. Bell Cranel is one such adventurer, a young boy just looking to become a true warrior and make a name for himself despite not being part of a fancy guild, and being supported only by the small goddess Hestia who has no other adventurer but him.

DanMachi is based on an otome game with many different routes for the main character to take, which is the perfect setup for a harem anime. And it takes full advantage of that. Combine it with a fantasy setting full of girls of countless species from elves to goddesses to girls with fox ears and everything in between and you've got DanMachi.

Much like Kimihito, Bell is a younger boy that finds himself surrounded by these women without really knowing how to handle it appropriately. They both go through crushes, jealousy, and fights with their wide array of fantasy girls, learning a lot about relationships (both friendship and more) along the way. Kimihito lives with many of the girls, and Bell lives with just Hestia, but the fun and fanservice are always guaranteed to follow our main character home in both anime.

Both DanMachi and Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou are fun and light-hearted fantasy harem stories that are easy to watch. They complement one another without making you feel like you're just watching the same anime again.

5. Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Oct. 2015 – Dec. 2015

Mamori Tokonome starts off Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, unfortunately, kidnapped from gym class and transported to an exotic and scandalous island called Mermaid. Mermaid is far from a relaxing, tropical getaway, however – in fact, it’s full of many enemies and predators! Luckily for Mamori, she is soon discovered by Mirei Shikishima, who teaches her that through passionate kissing they can unleash special transformative powers to fight against these enemies. The more aroused they are, the more powerful they can fight, and they are going to have to work together if they ever want to survive their time on Mermaid.

Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid is a shoujo-ai, so the romance that happens is between girls instead of a boy and a girl. Thus the harem of girls in the story is clearly going to be interacting with a heroine rather than a hero. But it's still a harem of fantasy girls revolving around one (mostly normal) human, just like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou. The romance in Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid mostly centres around Mamori and Mirei themselves, but there are many other girls that they encounter along the way as well on Mermaid Island. And throughout the story, the romance sequences themselves highlight Mamori's newly discovered magic powers. She can't activate them without passion after all, which makes romance very important to the story.

With all the different kinds of girls in Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, the fantasy element of their romance stories is always highlighted as well by all their unique supernatural quirks and features. Both anime keep that fantasy and magic kind of romance at the centre of the plot, so if that is what you like, check out Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid!


6. Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I am)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Jul. 2015 – Sep. 2015

In Jitsu wa Watashi wa, Asahi Kuromine is an average high school boy with a crush on a girl. Except for the girl of his dreams, Youko Shiragami, is actually a vampire! When Asahi finds out her secret, Youko's father decides it is best for Youko to quit school to protect the truth about herself and her family. Asahi doesn't really want his crush to leave, though, especially because of him, so he promises to not tell anyone. And Youko is just the beginning as more and more supernatural creatures are discovered by Asahi - and he has to keep them ALL a secret! It would be a lot easier if he wasn't so easy to read and so bad at lying...will he be able to do it?

Jitsu wa Watashi wa is the only anime on our updated list of Six Anime like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou that was on our original list as well. Because the similarities between the two anime are so close, and this anime is still quite recent, we felt it best to leave it in its spot for now! Both anime pivot around the story of a human boy and his harem of supernatural girls that he finds himself in various romantic situations with. Both also have one specific girl at the centre that kicks everything off and remains the most important - for Asahi it's Youko, and for Kimihito it's Miia.

Finally, both anime are comedy stories and very light-hearted and fun, so if you enjoyed yourself watching Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou be sure to give Jitsu wa Watashi wa a try next!

Enjoy Monster Musume but can’t wait for the next episode to air? Never fear! The following is a list of anime for those in search for that which makes Monster Musume great: harem set-up, ecchi, and a touch of the abnormal. While this list may dip into anime a little on the older side, these classic shows are nonetheless sure to keep you satiated while awaiting your next dose of monsters. Now without further ado, let’s get scary!

Similar Anime to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou / Similar Anime to Everyday Life with Monster Girls

1. Urusei Yatsura

  • Episodes: 195
  • Aired: October 1981– March 1986

Rumiko Takahashi’s first major hit, Urusei Yatsural, is largely credited with establishing the most common pattern appearing in contemporary anime, Monster Musume included: unremarkable male gets extraordinary girl(s). Urusei Yatsura might be quaint and a little dated by today’s standards. However, its vintage qualities perhaps render this show charming and fascinating. Within the fan service doled out each episode of Monster Musume, we can find echoes of Urusei Yatsura, whether it is ecchi or comedic interludes.

For those unfamiliar with this classic anime, Urusei Yatsura details the life of the unlucky high school student Ataru Moroboshi and voluptuous space alien Lum. After a misunderstanding that leads Lum to believe that Ataru wants to marry her, Ataru’s daily life becomes intertwined with the wacky antics of the now local alien life.


2. Rosario + Vampire

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: January 2008– March 2008

More in line with the monster girl harem theme, we have Rosario + Vampire. Though the monsters girls of this show occupy the scarier end of the monster spectrum, with such creatures as vampires and succubus, they are pleasantly guised as youthful high school girls. Much like Monster Musume, we have a seemingly unremarkable male character surrounded by a dizzyingly array of monster girls attracted to him. Armed with both action and ecchi, this show might be best for those looking for a bit of shounen mixed with harem.

Rosario + Vampire is the story of Tsukune Aono, a boy who fails to enter a human high school and find himself enrolled in a boarding school for monsters. Though he is frightened out of his mind, he quickly befriends the beautiful vampire girl Moka Akashiya and many other monster girls.


3. To Love-Ru

  • Episodes: 26
  • Aired: April 2008 – September 2008

Bouncing back to alien girls, we have To Love-Ru, where a girl literally falls from the sky and falls in love with a hapless high school boy. Like the above mentioned Urusei Yatsura and Monster Musume, To Love-Ru combines harem, ecchi, and a little bit of science fiction in a love comedy certain to entertain.

To Love-Ru is about the love struggles of Rito Yuuki. Having failed to confess to the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji, Rito, through a variety of mix-ups, becomes engaged to Lala, the alien princess of Deviluke. To make matters worse, this sudden engagement places Earth in danger of being destroyed.

4. Seto no Hanayome (My Bride Is a Mermaid)

  • Episodes: 26
  • Aired: April 2007 – September 2007

The previously listed anime generously doles out the fan service; Seto no Hanayome is not that type of anime. But this show’s quirkiness more than makes up for the lack of blatant ecchi. Though Seto no Hanayome is not a harem, Monster Musume resembles this show in some regards due to the focus on human and non-human relationships. This time, though, marriage is a reality for the hapless male who is suddenly tied down to a mermaid.

Seto no Hanayome centers on the story of Nagasumi Michishio, a teenage boy who becomes married to Seto San, the daughter of a Yakuza-esque mermaid family. This marriage does not go off without a hitch, however, and Nagasumi find his newly married life to a mermaid to be complicated.


5. Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I am)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jul 2015 - Ongoing

When all is said and done, Jitsu wa Watashi wa is a Rosario + Vampire in reverse. Rather than a human at a school for monsters, we have monster girls at a school for humans. These monster girls in turn focus their romantic attentions to a seemingly normal boy like they do in both Rosario + Vampire and Monster Musume.

Yet, rather than featuring heavy fan service, Jitsu wa Watashi wa frames itself as a romantic comedy, making it a much more refreshing, story oriented anime when compared to the ecchi-esque Monster Musume.

For those who haven’t tuned in to Jitsu wa Watashi wa yet, this show revolves around Asahi Kuromine, a relatively high school boy who discovers his classmate Yōko Shiragami is a vampire. Keeping this a secret wouldn’t seem to be a problem…if only Asahi wasn’t known for his inability to keep secrets and tell lies…and if only the secrets he had to keep didn’t keep increasing.


6. Orenchi no Furo Jijou (The Circumstances in My Home’s Bathtub)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: October 2014 – December 2014

Last but not least, we have Orenchi no Furo Jijou. If you want a series like Monster Musume, but with a Boys Love twist, then look no further. Orenchi no Furo Jijou is here to serve with its bevy of mermen encroaching on the everyday life of an unsuspecting high school boy.

Orenchi no Furo Jijou tells the story of Tatsumi, a high school boy who shares his bathtub with the handsome merman Wakasa. Tatsumi’s life becomes more difficult as other mermen begin to enter the scene and do more than just crowd his bathtub.


Hopefully this list has satisfied your lust for shows like Monster Musume. Rather than your typical harem, these shows add a little spice by including the extraterrestrial and at times supernatural. Mix in comedy and fan service, and what more could you ask? For those who dream of their own monster or alien harem, please enjoy these shows.

If this list doesn’t quite meet your standards, please feel free to leave your comments, questions, and concerns below!
