The 13 Action Anime Where Girls Are Madly Obsessed With MC

Romance is without a single doubt one of the most-watched genres ever. It’s rich in tropes, subgenres, and stereotypes that make it suitable for any taste and audience.

And one of those most talked about dynamics is definitely the one where the girl is obsessed with the main character.

We have collected for you the best action anime where one or more girls are obsessed with the protagonist. The addition of the action genre is to combine the harem trope with dangerous or fast-paced situations.

As always this listicle is purely based on our opinions and knowledge.

Lots of harem, lots of comedy, and lots of awkward and funny situations.

And of course, as happens in these anime, the characters will be of all kinds of stereotypes, obsessed girl included.

10. Shimoneta


An anime that contrary to the norm makes ecchi its main theme and not an accompaniment.

Shimoneta takes place in an alternate future where all forms of obscene language, gestures, or figures have been banned and put on the level of actual crimes.

The play follows the story of a group of students who are part of the rebellion against this system, tasked with finding a way to reintroduce obscenities into the world and defeat the government. This is the birth of the  SOX group.

The anime borders on the demented, and makes as mentioned above the ecchi the real focus of the story.

He awakens 2,000 years in the future in a peaceful world, but where the level of magic has plummeted and his wizard descendants are much weaker than he remembered.

Ending up as a student at the Demon King’s Academy, he decides to set things right.

This anime is memorable for the presence of its charismatic and strong protagonist, quite a badass that makes this series one of the best anime where the MC is a demon lord.

Anos within the anime is a charismatic, strong, and attractive man, so it’s obvious that every female character is crazy about him.

And it doesn’t even make sense to list them because every woman who sees him ends up obsessed with him.

7. The Irregular at Magic High School

The Irregular at Magic High School

The Irregular at Magic School is an anime aired in 2014. The plot is set in the late 21st century, in a future where magic has become commonplace and had merged with technology.

The main character called Shiba Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course, the one for less talented magicians, as opposed to his sister, who ends up among the most talented in the institution from the start.

Despite that, he will prove to possess extraordinary technical knowledge and physical combat capabilities.

He doesn’t give up and manages to prove everybody wrong by showing his real talent.

This will surely, as can be guessed, cause him to have no small amount of charm, eventually attracting attention and becoming desired by many girls in the school.

But the real obsession for Tatsuya will be from his sister, Miyuki, who will be much obsessed with him.

6. Gleipnir


Gleipnir is an anime released in 2020, and it deserves nomination as one of the most bizarre anime in recent years because of its strange transformations.

After hiding his power since he was born, he decides to rescue a girl from a burning building. But the girl was semi-conscious and being a student at his school found out soon after.

This is how he starts blackmailing Shuichi, telling him that if he doesn’t help her find his missing sister, he will reveal his secret to everyone.

But as the story continues she will begin to be more and more attracted to him, until it turns into obsession.

5. Date a Live

Investigating, Shido encounters the culprit Tohka, an extremely powerful spirit who has escaped from captivity and can destroy not only the city but also the entire world if she wanted to.

There is only one way for the boy to stop her, and that is by fulfilling the girl’s absurd demands. And her request is precise to take her on a date.

Too bad that, as time goes on, the girl will develop a truly dangerous obsession with Shido, making her mission more and more complicated.

A highly acclaimed series with action, harem, and ecchi with Sci-Fi, all accompanied by a sentimental plot.

4. High School DxD

High School DxD

What could be called by many the king of fanservice anime. In fact, it’s practically its workhorse and High School DxD doesn’t intend to hide it.

The story follows the events of Issei Hyoudou, a perverted student attending high school like any other who sees his highly anticipated first date goes decidedly wrong.

The boy is killed by the beautiful girl he is dating, only to come back to life thanks to the intervention of the beautiful and popular girl Rias Gremory, who makes him her assistant slave and gives him demoniac powers.

Thus begins his adventure filled with fights between Angels and Demons, but also with beautiful girls who increase his Harem of which he dreams of becoming the King.

And like any self-respecting harem, within it, we will have all kinds of personalities as far as girls are concerned. We will go from the tsundere, the kuudere and the one obsessed with the main character, which in this case is Akeno.

High School DxD is a must for any fan of ecchi anime with lots of fanservice. It can be funny, and serious, with lots of action and well-fitting and contextualized erotic moments.

3. Future Diary

Future Diary

The protagonist, Yukiteru Amano, is an antisocial and depressed boy who keeps a diary on his cell phone in which he notes everything that happens around him.

He thinks he has an imaginary friend called Deus Ex Machina, the lord of time. One day Deus decides to organize a game and makes a change to his diary, which now reports future events.

This starts a survival game where participants must try to kill each other or destroy their opponents’ future diaries to take the place of Deus as the god of time and space.

You will surely get to know Yuno Gasai, the almost prototypical Yandere girl who will fall madly in love with Yukiteru despite the cruel deaths that happen on the wheel.

Too bad that the love the girl will develop for Yukiteru is anything but healthy. It will, in fact, without mincing words, be a true obsession, bordering on insanity.

But at least this means that it’ll be a romance with no harem, right?

Akame Ga Kill! is an interesting and complete series. It’s one of the best action anime, with sad moments, gore, romance and even some cool sword fights.

And even these romantic moments are different in nature, as we have classic ones, such as those between Tatsumi and Mine, but also examples of obsessive love.

And this is the case of Esdeath, one of the villains, who will lose her head over our protagonist.
