TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR REVERSE HAREM ANIME

Here's a continuation from my previous anime post. Harem is a genre of anime in which the main character is usually surrounded by two or more characters of the opposite sex.  There are two types of Harem. One is the Male -oriented Harem which i've listed down (check TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR HAREM ANIME) and the other one is a Female Oriented Harem or better known as Reverse Harem. In contrast with my previous list, Reverse Harem is the type of anime where the lead character is a female (a bishojo)and she is surrounded by male cast (bishonen). Listed below are five of the most popular Reverse Harem in Anime. have fun!

TOP 5 MOST POPULAR REVERSE HAREM ANIME
"UTA NO PRINCE-SAMA"
Uta No Prince-Sama follows the life of  a girl named Nanami Haruka who enters Saotome Academy, a prestigious performing arts school. The competition in ther school, however, is not that easy considering that she is surrounded by potential idols and composers.The school usually paired up two students after every graduation (one of them is the idol and the other one is the composer). If the pair becamesuccessful, the pair will join and take the spot as the new Shining Agency debut artists. Romance is also prohibited in the academy which makes it more difficult for Nanami. The male characters in the story includes Ottoya Ittoki, Masato Hijirikawa, Natsuki Shinomiya , Tokiya Ichinose, Ren JingÅ«ji and Syo Kurusu.  Interestingly, Uta No Prince-Sama just like most Harem anime, also originated as an otome (visual novel) game. 

TOP 4 MOST POPULAR REVERSE HAREM ANIME
"YAMATO NADESHIKO SHICHI HENGE (THE WALLFLOWER)"
This is actually my personal favorite because of its humorous and highly comical approach. Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is about a girl named Sunako who was called ugly by the first and only person to whom she confessed her love. This incident sparks a life change, and as a result Sunako shuns all forms of beauty, both in herself as well as in life. Concerned by her change for the worst, Sunako's aunt, the owner of a beautiful mansion where four very handsome students live, offers the guys free rent in her mansion if they can turn Sunako into a "perfect lady" . The guys include Kyohei, Takenaga, Yuki and Ranmaru.While the four of them manage to make Sunako physically beautiful enough to become a lady, the problem lies with her attitude and interests

Fruits Basket tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Sohma, learns that thirteen members of the Sohma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac  and are cursed to turn into their animal forms when they are weak, stressed, or when they are embraced by anyone of the opposite sex that is not possessed by a zodiacal spirit. She sets out to break the curse, and on the way, meets and discovers each of the Sohma's vengeful zodiac spirits. Each has a different personality, just like the animals in the Chinese Zodiac.

"OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB"
Ouran High follows Haruhi Fujioka, a scholarship student at Ouran High School, and the other members of the popular host club. The romantic comedy focuses on the relationships within and outside the Club. It all started when Haruhi accidentally stumbled in the Third Music Room (and accidentaly broke a very expensive base) where the Ouran Academy host club gathers to entertain females (they called them as clients). Because Haruhi got  this short hair , slouching attire and gender-ambiguous face , they mistaken her as a male. In order to pay off her debt, the club (composed of six males including Tamaki, Kyoya, Hikaru, Kaoru, Mitsukini and Mori) decided to make Haruhi as a host but she has to pretend and dress like a male. 

THE TOP MOST POPULAR REVERSE HAREM ANIME
"HANA YORI DANGO"
I actually decided to put Ouran High on top but since i am listing down "the most popular", i think Hana Yori Dango deserves it better considering that this anime as adapted in several media franchise more than any manga and anime did. Hana Yori Dango is basically the origin of the successful television series including the Hana Yori Dango in Japan, Meteor Garden of Taiwan and Boys Over Flowers of South Korea. Originally, the story is about a girl named Tsukushi Makino who came from a very poor family but was considered in Eitoku Academy, an elite school for children from rich families. The school is ruled by the "Flower Four" group, more commonly known as the F4 (Tsukasa Domyouji, Sojirou Nishikado, Akira Mimasaka and Rui Hanazawa). The story is about how Tsukushi changed the lives of F4 especially when in comes to the hot headed behavior of Tsukasa. Over time, Tsukushi's feelings towards Tsukasa evolve, as she begins to appreciate the degree of change that occurred in Tsukasa once he fell in love with her. However, because of the difference in their family background, Tsukushi and Tsukasa's relationship received a lot of opposition from Tsukasa's mother.
