Most of us know what fan service is all about. If you don’t, then you better look it up first. Now when I say sexual anime, you’re probably thinking of hentai but there is a difference between the two. Hentai, to put it simply, is just porn and nothing more than that whereas Ecchi is more of an anime with bold sexual themes although its main plot may not exactly be about sex. So here we’ve made a list of the sexiest Ecchi shows that you can find on Crunchyroll. For obvious reasons, you may be a little reluctant to agree that you actually like them but you just can’t deny that these raunchy shows are entertaining as hell. Here’s the list of top adult anime on Crunchyroll:
18. Recently, My Sister is Unusual (2014)
Incest is one sub-genre that has been quite prominent in the world of Ecchi anime. Japanese anime creators have always taken a keen interest in the idea of “forbidden love” and have been able to portray it in the most twisted and indirect ways to abide by the laws. Once you know that this anime is about incestuous relationships, its title ‘Recently, My Sister is Unusual’ becomes quite self-explanatory. Most Ecchi lovers will surely have a good time watching it but for others, it is better to stay away from it as it lacks a well-written story and also has the most generic characters you’ll ever see. The anime is accessible for streaming here.
17. High School DxD (2012-)
The words “high school” in the title itself are enough for you to assume that ‘High School DxD‘ is again just another one of those typical teenage dilemma anime shows. While that may hold true to a certain extent, the reason why it is so damn popular is because of how it is able to make the whole experience quite relatable. Fan service moments can often be annoying and unnecessary in most shows but ‘High School DxD‘ uses these to its advantage by perfectly pacing them throughout its runtime. There are a whole lot of adult anime shows that you can watch on Crunchyroll if you solely expect them to have a sexy appeal. But if you want something more out of these anime, then ‘High School DxD’ should be your go-to show. The series is available here.
16. Yosuga no Sora (2010)
In the beginning, ‘Yosuga no Sora‘ comes off as an anime that only fulfills your guilty pleasures but as soon as its story kicks off, it surprises you with the amount of depth it contains. The main protagonist of the show ends up having sex with multiple girls which almost makes this one a borderline hentai anime. But what saves it from being porn is the backstories that lead up to every single act of sex. Hentai or not, if you’re looking for sexy anime with a streak of emotions and drama, ‘Yosuga no Sora‘ might just be the perfect show for you. You can watch the stream here.
15. So, I Can’t Play H (2012-)
If you’re a hardcore ‘High School DxD’ fan and you’re looking for a very similar anime that has unmatched nudity, an extremely perverted protagonist and a freakishly voluptuous goddess-like female lead, then look no further. While ‘So, I Can’t Play H‘ may not be that great of a show, if you focus only on its characters and the story, it can be really entertaining. You can stream the anime here.
14. Majikoi: Oh! Samurai Girls (2011)
‘Majikoi: Oh! Samurai Girls’ is a harem anime that is set in Kawakami City, a region in Japan with a rich history of samurai warriors. The show follows Yamato Naoe and his close friends who live a peaceful life following the values they have inculcated through years of martial arts training. However, when their small group is joined by two new girls, things take an unexpected turn as the resolve of Naoe and his friends is tested in unthinkable ways. Curious to find out how things unfold? You can watch the series here.
13. To Love Ru Darkness (2012-)
‘To Love-Ru Darkness‘ is an anime that is considered to be Ecchi not just because of its obvious fan service, but also because of how amazingly it adapts its source material. Even if you’re not exactly into sexy adult anime shows, you should give this one a shot as it has tiny bits of all genres from shounen to romance to even sci-fi. It is funny and has some heartwarming moments too, that give it a distinctive tone. And most of all, it has some good quality animation which makes its fan service moments even better. All the episodes are available here.
10. Golden Boy (1995 – 1996)
Kintarou Ooe is an autodidact who believes in learning things through experiences instead of memorizing unnecessary subjects in school. He travels to different places in Japan and takes odd jobs to survive. His random adventures bring him a plethora of experiences, and quite a few of them are with women. ‘Golden Boy’ does not shy away from its depiction of semi-nude/nude sex scenes, something only a mature 18+ should watch. All the episodes are available here.
11. Highschool of the Dead (2010)
When a frightening pandemic that turns humans into zombies strikes Japan, the society falls to its knees within a few days. While the possibility of survival seems dismal, Takashi Kimuro and a few others band together to start a last-ditch struggle for their other lives and their loved ones. While the show has a solid premise, it also features a number of sexually provocative scenes. You can watch the anime here.
10. Tsugumomo (2017 – 2020)
When a restless spirit attacks Kazuya Kagami, a mature soul owned by his mother comes to his aid and saves him from the worst possible outcomes.

You can watch how the story unfolds here.
9. Ikki Tousen (2003)
‘Ikki Tousen’ has a lot of fan service moments and has the sexiest bunch of characters but it is not like your typical borderline hentai anime shows. This anime has a lot to do with Chinese history and is loosely based on a Chinese novel set in the early 200 AD. If you’re tired of watching the same old Ecchi anime that have nothing but fan service, then ‘Ikki Tousen’ has a strange yet fascinating blend of history, romance and hentai that makes it one hell of an anime. The show is available for streaming here.

6. Koihime†Musou (2008 – 2010)
Unchou Kan’u lives changes forever when her family is skilled mercilessly by bandits. Instead of dwelling on the past, she decides to fight back and take on every other bandit group that tries to harass innocent people. In one of her adventures, she meets Kan’u, a girl with a similar past as her, and the two embark on an epic journey. The show recounts an action-packed story of vengeance that you should definitely watch. It also has a few 18+ scenes, and you can stream ‘Koihime†Musou’ here.
7. Queen’s Blade (2009)
‘Queen’s Blade’ has received widespread criticism for its bizarre and unnecessary fan service. Only the ones who watched it for the sole purpose of getting a dose of extreme fanservice could appreciate it. However, if you’re able to get past the infamous first few episodes of the show, it has a pretty decent plot, in my opinion. Over the years, ‘Queen’s Blade’ has been able to establish itself as a pretty popular franchise that also includes figurines and art books, so there has to be something more to it than just fan service. Even if there isn’t, it certainly qualifies for the title of one of the sexiest adult anime shows of all time. You can watch the show here.

‘School Days‘ is known for exploring dark themes that revolve around a high-school love triangle.

This is the closest you can ever get to hentai. If you’ve got plans to watch the sexiest Ecchi show out there, then this is the one for you. But then don’t expect it to be Hentai as it still is quite far from being porn. ‘Kanokon’ actually sets an example of how an anime can reach the extreme ends of sexiness and still not come off as something that would be considered 18+. It also has a pretty decent storyline that complements its adult themes. You can watch the show here.

1. Samurai Bride (2010-)
Like almost every other Ecchi comedy out there, ‘Samurai Bride’ does not really have much of a plot. However, it does have some extremely bold adult scenes and also some time-killing harem relationships that shouldn’t be taken too seriously. If you’re looking for a samurai anime that has some serious plot building and complex characters, then this one is not for you. But if you just want to watch a sexy anime that is short and enjoyable, then this should be your first pick. You can watch the series here.
