6 Anime Like Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan (Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time) [Recommendations]

Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time is a very rare specimen of harem anime where the guy actually has sex with the girls over the traditional status quo route of the girls loving the main character but him never choosing the one-and-only girl.

Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan is one of those harem anime that skirts the line of what is considered hentai or not, assuming you’re watching the uncensored version. For this list, Honey’s Anime has selected 6 anime titles that share some qualities with Peter Grill, such as borderline hentai fanservice, societal structures in isekai anime, interspecies relationships, or just harem anime with full-length episodes.

Now, with that out of the way, here are Honey’s Anime’s 6 Anime Like Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan (Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time)!

1. Ishuzoku Reviewers (Interspecies Reviewers)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 2020 - March 2020

In this fantasy world where races from humans, elves, to demons and to the undead live in harmony, each race exchanges knowledge, ideals, and, of course, their taste in women. Each town contains a thriving community of brothels where everyone, regardless of race or species, can have sex with whatever or whoever they wish. A group of adventurers—Stunk the human, Zel the elf, and Crimvael the angel—are on a quest to visit each brothel, have sex with the various species of women, write reviews of their experiences, and post them in bulletin boards for other adventurers who are curious about interspecies sex.

Isekai anime is nothing new and if you look at Peter Grill, it’s another isekai harem anime you’ve seen before. But unlike other harem isekai, the main character, Peter Grill, actually beds the girls he comes in contact with, especially elves, ogres, and orcs. And this got us thinking, does sex feel different with someone who isn’t human? Peter Grill doesn’t touch on the subject too much (at least until the anime animates the chapter with the rabbit girl), but Ishuzoku Reviewers will definitely satisfy your curiosity. Stunk casually has sex with almost any species found in brothels and gives his thoughts, as a human, on what are the ups and downs of making love with, say, a bird girl. And to give interracial sex a broader perspective, each reviewer has their own different opinion—for example, humans making love to elves 500+ years older than them is great because of their seemingly eternal beauty, but for an elf, anyone who is 500+ years older, regardless of race, aren’t great because their mana is weak or is rotting. If you’re looking for the technical side of interspecies sex, then Ishuzoku Reviewers is something you might want to check out, too.

2. Bikini Warriors

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2015 - September 2015

The four heroes: Fighter, Paladin, Mage, and the Dark Elf are the only hope in saving the world from evil… But before they start doing that saving-the-world business, they need money. Hey, you can’t save the world on an empty stomach!

As we have repeatedly mentioned before, short-length anime are great shows to watch in-between full-length anime. They’re easy to digest, provide short bursts of comic relief, and they are typically shows with niche themes or with very simplistic stories. Peter Grill is a fantasy harem anime running around 12 minutes per episode, consisting of Peter trying to keep his pants up, and Bikini Warriors is about a group of bumbling idiots wearing bikini armor and always getting into trouble. The two anime are nothing alike in terms of story and content (Peter Grill is more heterosexual and Bikini Warriors is yuri), but both are very fanservice-heavy with tons of nudity, obscene humor, and sex scenes. We’d argue Bikini Warriors is even closer to borderline hentai than Peter Grill because, assuming you’re watching the Hyper Sexy version, the sex scenes are very much front and center compared to Peter Grill’s post-coitus affair.

3. Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san (Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2018 - September 2018

High school student Fuyuzora Kogarashi has found himself in the resort town of Yukemori to find a job, a place to stay, and continue his studies. Kogarashi has psychic powers that grant him the ability to see ghosts and he uses this ability to earn some money by exorcising these supernatural nuisances. Upon arriving at the haunted hot springs resort of Yuragi-sou, Kogarashi meets Yuuna, a beautiful ghost who is bound to the inn and is harmless. Kogarashi’s new life begins alongside the other supernatural tenants of the inn.

Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san and Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan are both harem anime about one guy surrounded by lots of girls vying for his affection and his, uh, junk, and lots of fanservice that is borderline hentai. Both Peter and Kogarashi are very strong main characters who can beat monsters like it’s nothing, and both have one girl in their heart. But what sets the two apart is that Kogarashi doesn’t cheat on the girl he likes. Sure, there are circumstances where Peter was blackmailed by one of the girls, but deep down, he wants his animal instincts to go wild and free. Yeah, we know, Luvelia is a major reason why Peter is easily tempted by other women, but that’s a story for another day. Anyway, Kogarashi on the other hand, made it clear he’ll only “do it” to the girl he loves, and he even resisted the sexual advances of Oboro—a girl who wants nothing but Kogarashi’s genes. NTR and cheating aren’t the most popular themes in anime, and if Peter Grill’s infidelity bothers you, then definitely check out Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san—it has everything you want in Peter Grill, but with more male integrity.

4. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2015 - September 2015

Demi-humans like monsters and mythical beings are living peacefully with humans. Through the Interspecies Cultural Exchange Act, demi-humans can move into the human realm and integrate with human society—demi-humans are assigned to host families and learn about society through them. Kurusu Kimihito is one of these hosts and he’s currently taking care of a snake girl named Miia, and soon after, more and more demi-girls move in to learn more about the human realm.

In Peter Grill, ogres Mimi and Lisa, elf Vegan, and orc Piglette all want Peter’s genes, and the more they have sex with Peter, the higher the chance of the girls getting pregnant. And since these demi-girls hate each other, they fight over who gets to have sex with Peter. If you phrase it slightly differently, Peter’s situation is just like any other harem anime—the guy is surrounded by lots of girls vying for his love. The demi-girls in Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou are under the care of Kimihito and since he is a very nice guy, very dependable, and tends to their needs, the demi-girls like him very much. Too much, actually. And, of course, if you found the fanservice in Peter Grill to your liking (huge boobs, chunky girls), there’s a lot to love in Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou.

5. High School DxD

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 2012 - March 2012

Hyoudou Issei is your average guy who gets transferred into a school where the majority of students are girls and is desperate to get a girlfriend so he can enjoy benefits like kissing, hugging, and groping her boobs. Issei eventually gets lucky when a beautiful girl asks him out on a date but what he didn’t expect is that the girl is a fallen angel and she’s out to kill him. Eventually, Issei gets killed but brought back to life by the mysterious Rias Gremory, a devil. So why was Issei attacked by a fallen angel and what’s the motive behind Rias resurrecting him? Instead of pondering at the absurdity he has experienced, Issei is enjoying his time with Rias because she doesn’t mind getting all naked in front of Issei.

What’s great about Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan is the abundance of fanservice, from boob shots and humor—like the demigirls spending the entire 12-minute episode seducing Peter by going full naked in front of him or blackmailing him for sex. Sure, 12 minutes per episode is very short, so we have little time to appreciate the show’s finer details. But thankfully, we have harem anime like High School DxD offering a similar and lengthier fanservice experience. Story with fantasy elements? High School DxD has vampires, fallen angels, devils, and catgirls. Main character constantly getting into ecchi situations? Boobs are in Issei’s face every few minutes. A cast of hot ladies? Rias, Akeno, Koneko, and Asia are some of the sexiest girls in anime who never fail to undress in front of the hero. Fanservice? Just like Peter Grill, High School DxD is softcore hentai parading as TV anime.

6. Monster Musume no Oishasan (Monster Girl Doctor)

  • Episodes: Unknown
  • Aired: July 2020 - Ongoing

Humans and monsters have settled their differences after a gruesome war lasting hundreds of years, so the world is finally at peace. The story is about Glenn Litbeit, a young doctor specializing in monsters, and his serpent-girl nurse, Saphentite Neikes, traveling across the land helping monsters with their physical health.

Fanservice and monster girls aside, the world-building in Monster Musume no Oishasan is the main focus and each episode gives us an insight into why the war between humans and monsters started, how both sides settled their differences, and what the monster-human society looks like—centaurs are the central part of the transportation system and parcel delivery services and cyclops are in the heavy industries like smithing, just to name a few. Glenn’s position as a monster physician adds more to the world-building by letting the viewers get a perspective on a monster’s biology gives them an advantage to roles as warriors or smiths. In the world of Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan, the world-building is almost the same—humans and demihumans coexisting, interracial marriages are allowed, and the races settle their differences through friendly competition, and the heirarchy constantly shifting as each race seeks out the strongest warrior in the world for their genes.
