The manga world is a fascinating phenomenon that encompasses a wide range of genres and storylines. Although the majority of manga genres are similar to those found in Western art, there are a few that are unique to Japanese art. The majority of them are rarely seen in the West, while a few are, but under different names.

Ecchi is thrilling in and of itself and is well-liked by anime and manga fans alike. Add to that the sight of attractive young women dressed in sultry outfits taking part in various action sequences. It’s now clear why the genre has a devoted following of its own.

12. Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko

Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko

Yokodera is like any other adolescent: perversion is in his blood. He can’t stop looking up girls’ skirts and fantasizing about them. In his case, however, every time he does something perverted, it is misinterpreted as something positive for the community. He tries to break free from his perversion by going to a particular part of town.

A wooden sculpture of a beckoning cat on top of a hill, located far from the town at the foot of a a large tree, is said to have special powers. Instead of bringing the user a wish, as a typical beckoning cat would, it takes something from the user, in Yokodera’s case, his perversion.

Still skeptical, he uses the beckoning cat, figuring it couldn’t hurt to give it a shot, but to his surprise, his life is about to take an unexpected turn.

It’s a fantastic slice-of-life manga with a hint of ecchi in it.

However, as their relationship grows stronger, his heart begins to shift between Yuzuki and his not-so-secret crush, Nanami Kanzaki, a classmate.

Although life in the countryside is slow and simple, Haruto’s problems are as complicated as a city skyline. Kimi no Iru Machi uses the irrefutable unpredictability of time to show how a single day can bring strangers together unexpectedly while another can abruptly separate them.

It depicts love in all of its forms, including the good, the bad, and the harsh, cold reality. It’s one of those stories that you won’t be able to put down once you start reading it, so be ready.

14. Hantsu x Torasshu

Hantsu x Torasshu

Hamaji Youhei, a high school freshman, wanders aimlessly throughout the day. He can’t keep up with his studies, isn’t very athletic, and can’t commit to anything for very long. Aside from that, he’s a pervert who is constantly rejected by women. A sophomore persuades him to join a club where he can lunge at girls, fondle and touch them as much as he wants. Therefore, he became a member of the Water Polo Club.

Can Youhei, who has a hard time sticking to anything for long periods of time, find his place in this club?

It’s a typical romance ecchi series, but the setting is a swimming pool, and the main characters are likable. It flows well, and you’ll find yourself rooting for the male character’s ultimate triumph, which is a good sign of the story’s quality. The fanservice doesn’t interfere with the plot or character development. Rather, fanservice and ecchi are employed to further the plot.

15. Onihime VS

Onihime VS

Setsuna Kashiwagi’s only wish is for his younger sister to be happy. Setsuna, who is weak, frail, and constantly bullied, believes he is nothing more than a burden on his sister and wishes to take his own life.

16. No Game No Life

No Game No Life

The NEET siblings Sora and Shiro, the online gamers behind the infamous username “Blank,” star in No Game No Life, a surreal comedy. They consider the real world to be just another bad game; however, when they get an e-mail inviting them to a chess game, everything changes—the brother and sister are whisked away to an unknown realm where Tet, the God of Games, awaits.

Sora and Shiro are welcomed to Disboard by the mysterious god, a world where all forms of conflict—from minor quarrels to the fate of entire countries—are resolved through high-stakes games rather than war. This system works because of a basic rule that requires each party to wager something of equal value to the other party’s wager.

Despite their indifferent natures, Shiro and Sora have finally found a purpose in this strange land where humanity is reduced to child’s play: to unite Disboard’s sixteen races, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

17. Sekirei

Sekirei

The scene has been set. All of the preparations have been completed. The “Sekirei Project,” a massive battle royale, is about to devastate Shintou Teito’s streets. MBI, a shadowy corporation, has created 108 “Sekirei”—advanced humanoid beings with exceptional combat abilities—for this event.

After being set free in the city, the Sekirei must seek out their “Ashikabi,” masters who can use kissing to unlock and control their fighting potential. Once all of the Sekirei have been paired, they must battle until one team emerges victorious and takes home the mysterious grand prize.

18. Gantz

Gantz

Has it ever seemed as though your life was going to hell in a handbasket? Death can be a lot worse at times. There is no salvation, no peace, and no god waiting to take you in. But, what’s that, a god? Perhaps you’re referring to the large black ball that has become stuck in your room. Now you’re trapped in a game where you must fight green aliens and robot monsters for your life.

When Kei Kurono is killed, he is drawn into a game that puts his skills, morals, and will to survive to the test. His life is not his own, and his death is repeatedly spat upon and trampled. What will happen if he refuses to listen? God only knows.

A word of caution: Gantz is not for the faint of heart, nor is it as straightforward as it appears. Gore, rape, and violence abound, as do depictions of greed, violence, and all the ugliness that can be found in today’s society. Gantz’s ideas concern the narcissistic state of 21st-century living, mass materialism, and human relations in the face of ever-disturbing circumstances.

19. Medaka Box

Medaka Box

Kurokami Medaka, a first-year student, is elected Student Council President, and her first act is to establish a suggestion box, later dubbed the “Medaka Box” by students.

Medaka was elected to the Student Council with a whopping 98 percent of the vote, making her the only member of the body. She asks Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, a childhood friend, for assistance, and he reluctantly agrees, becoming the Student Council’s lowest-ranking member.

Soon after, Medaka adds two more members to the Student Council: former judo club member Akune Kouki as secretary and current swim club member Kikaijima Mogana as treasurer, both on loan for 300 yen per day.

Now, Student Council members spend their days resolving problems submitted through the Medaka Box, whether it’s hooligans in clubs where they don’t belong, girls who need help writing love letters, or people who’ve lost their pets, slowly earning the respect and admiration of the entire school.

20. My Dress-Up Darling

My Dress-Up Darling

Wakana Gojou, a doll-artisan hopeful who was traumatized by a childhood incident with a friend who took issue with his love of traditional dolls, spends his days as a loner, finding solace in his high school’s home ec room. Beautiful Marin Kitagawa, a trendy girl who is always surrounded by a throng of friends, is like an alien from another world to Wakana.

When Marin, who is never shy, notices Wakana sewing one day after school, she barges in with the intention of luring her quiet classmate into her secret hobby: cosplay! Will Wakana’s wounded heart be able to withstand this sexy alien’s invasion?!

GE Good Ending

Seiji Utsumi, a second-year high school student, is hopelessly in love with Shou Iketani, the vivacious and scatterbrained tennis club captain from the year above him, but he can’t bring himself to speak to her. It is perfectly fine for him to merely observe, perhaps a little too literally, because he is unable to make any progress.

As a new semester begins, Seiji is caught spying on the tennis club’s morning practice and accused of peeping by Yuki Kurokawa, a club member who ends up in his class. When Yuki sees that Seiji is serious about Shou and has no bad intentions, she decides to assist him in confessing his feelings.

The newly-minted “Darling” quickly attracts girls from numerous species, resulting in an ever-growing harem flush with eroticism and attraction, thanks to the incompetence of interspecies exchange coordinator Agent Smith, who puts Kimihito in charge of a Lamia named Miia.

Unfortunately for him and the ladies, the Interspecies Exchange Act prohibits sexual interactions between species! The only way to get around it is to use an experimental marriage provision. As passionate, affectionate, and lusty women pursue his every move, seeking his affections.

24. Grand Blue

Grand Blue

Iori Kitahara, a freshman at Izu University, is just starting his freshman year amid Izu’s ocean waves and the rays of the shining sun. He looks forward to his dream college life, filled with beautiful girls and good friends, as he moves into his uncle’s scuba diving shop, Grand Blue.

Things, sadly, do not always go according to plan. When he enters the shop, he is immediately coerced into participating in their alcoholic activities by a group of rowdy, naked upperclassmen. Iori, despite his initial reluctance, eventually gives in and becomes the party’s heart and soul.

Unfortunately, this earns him the wrath of his cousin, Chisa Kotegawa, who happens to walk in at the worst possible moment. Iori remains unfazed, vowing to live out his ideal college life, but will things go as planned this time, or will his situation worsen?

Grand Blue’s story is straightforward but engrossing to read. It follows a group of new students who have no idea what they want to do with their lives and join a club out of curiosity, but Grand Blue does a fantastic job with this.

25. We Never Learn

We Never Learn

Nariyuki Yuiga, a third-year high school student, dedicated himself to becoming a high-achieving student in his school, despite his history of poor grades, as his late father always said that a useless man should strive to be useful.

In order to give his family a better life, he aims to obtain the VIP scholarship, a prestigious scholarship that will cover all future university tuition fees. Despite the fact that Nariyuki could theoretically be a shoo-in for the award, he is constantly overshadowed in mathematics and literature by classmates Rizu Ogata and Fumino Furuhashi.

Nariyuki is ecstatic to be nominated, but there’s a catch: he’ll have to tutor his two star classmates, who are both hopelessly mediocre in the other’s respective field! To make matters worse, the subjects in which they are horrible, are the subjects in which they wish to specialize in the future. Nariyuki needs to find an effective tutoring method for the girls before it’s too late, as the deadline for submitting university applications approaches.

26. Sundome

Sundome

The new president of the Roman club is Hideo Aiba, which is dedicated to preserving boyhood dreams and remaining virgins until high school graduation. Kurumi Sahana is a cute new transfer student who joins the Roman club, which is currently “all boys.”

Kurumi sexually annoys Hideo by forcing him to do her bidding during club activities and during the school day. Hideo simply desires to be with Kurumi for whatever reason. Kyouko, a jealous girl, soon begins to frequent the club, as Kurumi appears to be drawing the attention of every boy at school. The girls quickly begin offering “rewards” to the club’s male members for participating in the activities they desire. The result is a mixture of sexual frustration and hilarity.

In ecchi manga, the story of a young, nerdy loser hooking up with a cute girl is fairly standard. It has been recycled without fail, and for many people, reading one is the same as reading all of them. Sundome, however, is unique. Sexuality is explored in this manga in order to make a larger statement about the human condition, rather than using it to tantalize the readers.

27. Kanokon

Kanokon

Kouta is having supernatural girl problems. He continues to attract the attention and affections of animal spirits for some reason!

Kouta is understandably nervous when he moves in with his grandmother to attend a high school in the big city after spending most of his life in the country. He wanted to make a good first impression, but having Chizuru, a beautiful fox spirit, dangling from his arm didn’t seem to fit the bill. She isn’t the only one who adores Kouta. The wolf spirit Nozomu, as well as other youkai, have set their sights on the unfortunate country boy.

A supernatural setting with plenty of eye candy and fan service. This manga was created with the intention of being eye candy, and it succeeded admirably. Reading Kanokon is a lot of fun, and it’s interesting enough to keep you entertained.

28. Love Hina

Love Hina

When he was a kid, Keitaro Urashima promised a girl that they would meet at Tokyo University. As a result, he has attempted two years in a row to gain admission to the prestigious university without success. When his parents kick him out, he tries to find a place to stay at his grandmother’s inn, but he has no idea that it has been converted into an all-girls dorm.

He is allowed to keep his dorm manager position, but his clumsiness frequently gets him into trouble with the girls. To realize his ambition, he studies with Naru Narusegawa, who has her own reasons for wanting to attend Tokyo University.

Thus continues the unpopular Keitarou’s arduous journey to gain admission to Tokyo University, all in the hopes of fulfilling a childhood promise to the only girl who has ever shown any interest in him, and perhaps, just maybe, meeting her again.
