Harem is a kind of anime, usually the main character surrounded by several characters (who are usually all possible love interests) of the opposite sex. This genre is mostly combined with romanticism, satire, and ecchi, as it is and as it can lead to all sorts of predictable situations (awkward or not).
Normally the main character is male. Unless the protagonist is a woman with many male fans, the anime would be called a reverse harem.
Since the genre is very popular these days, I decided to make the top ten list of the best harem anime you can watch and enjoy (growing a big fan base with plenty of titles) Have fun!

Lilith Asami appears before Arata in order to investigate the anomaly, whose artificial environment disappears unexpectedly. Two choices are offered to him: hand over the book or die.

Those six are the Trinity Seven, the school elite along with Lilith, each with its own power and skills.
Arata does little to avoid the devastation of his beloved hometown and to take back its best friend, aimed at saving Hijiri and the aid of his newness.
