It’s possible to watch a romantic anime without ever seeing anyone kissing. It’s even possible to find harem animes that don’t go that far in the first place.
Even the cliched Ecchi shows can be guilty of this.
Some anime have kissing sequences in this and other genres, as well.
That will be the center of this piece, so let’s get down to business and find out where it’s most prevalent.
1. The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter
Is there anything more cliche than the “Hideous Dungeon Only I Can Enter?”
Because he was born into an aristocratic family, our protagonist has a head start in life.
As soon as he enrolls in a prestigious university, the harem begins to form.
MC gets his first “kiss” in the very first episode of the anime, therefore he deserves credit for that. Among the countless clichés that abound in this genre, he manages to do something new.
First Harem/Ecchi fantasy show I came across was Campione. In the first episode, there is a kiss.
If you’re looking for lots of sloppy kissing and other sexual acts, this is the video for you.
If you like the first few episodes, you’ll probably like the rest of the show. However, it’s important to state here because it’s relevant.
3. The World God Only Knows
Katsuragi Keima is the subject of a harem drama called The World God Only Knows. a man who is addicted to playing dating sims.
He makes it abundantly plain that he has no interest in dating actual women.
A demon girl named Elsie has him “kissing girls” in order to save their lives.
Even after three seasons of encountering girls like this, the way it’s handled doesn’t feel as awful.
4. Snow White With The Red Hair
The Red-Haired Stepdaughter of Snow White
One of the best romance series out there, Snow White With The Red Hair tells the story of a prince and the princess he falls in love with.
But even though she’s not a royal bloodline, Shirayuki is determined to succeed and distinguishes out due to her red hair and her hard work. And that’s the emphasis of the anime’s opening sequence.
There are plenty of kissing scenes, family-friendly episodes, exciting sequences, and amusing exchanges between the characters.
5. Date A Live
One other harem series that was new to me was Date A Live. That’s one of my earliest memories of it.
When the first episode finishes, Shido’s life appears to be on the line for a brief time.
From there, the gist of it is that he saves girls by kissing them. This is a well-worn trope in these subgenres.
In my opinion, season 2 onwards are progressively less good than season 1 was.
This is still relevant, so I’m including it.
At this moment, Inuyasha is considered a classic. As for romance, it’s up there with the best in terms of “the feelings.”
Is about Kagome Higurashi who falls down a well and ends up in a very different time and place than she was before.
A half-dog demon, half-human named Inuyasha introduces her to a new world. However, he is initially smitten with someone else (Kikyo).
This is a crucial stage of the anime’s development, both in terms of plot and character arcs (kissing included).
7. Scum’s Wish
This is a romance anime gone horribly wrong. Because of the morally problematic actions that take place between characters.
The word “scum” is a helpful clue in the title of this show.
There is a lot of kissing, even some intimacy, and sequences that will either make you think, or make you cringe.
It has a lot of extreme themes.
It’s relevant: Are you looking for short-haired anime girls? Here Are Over Two-Hundred of the Best!
8. Sword Art Online
The focus of this anime isn’t on sexy moments. SAO is about virtual reality, massively multiplayer online games, and video games in general, therefore there’s no need to explain it here.
Seasons 1, 2, and 3 all feature a survival component. Every one of them has a unique perspective on how to depict it.
There won’t be a lot of smooching going on. In terms of romance, there are plenty of suggestive scenes and apparent kissing.
It’s all about Taiga Aisaka, the palm-top tiger, in this animated series. And there’s Ryuuji Takasu, a cleaning enthusiast who’s been snubbed because of his looks.
It’s not until later in the series that Toradorado becomes overly romantic. So you’ll have to put in some effort to get there.
A lot of action is taking on around this period; emotions are running high and story twists are emerging from the floorboards.
If you can make it past the first five or so episodes, you’ll find that the anime lives up to expectations.
10. Darling In The Franxx
You get everything from provocative sequences to kissing scenes to action to drama and so on since the plot had no idea where it wanted to take you.
In the beginning, it’s a little bit, but it’s more prevalent in the later phases. A story with several characters.
It’s entirely up to you whether or not you find it satisfying. After the first half, I felt that the anime had lost its way and was a huge letdown.
