12 Contemporary Reverse Harem Books You Should Try

Contemporary Reverse Harem

Reverse Harem technically is one girl in multiple guys. It could be either in friendship, where she has a relationship with one or two of them, and the other one is a supportive friend. It could be friends as well. So you see a lot more of this come up in anime or manga. The main character either comes from a difficult background could be abusive, homeless, or something.

In these extenuating circumstances, she finds this group of guys that they’re going to be there and they’re going to protect her. So in the harem, the guys don’t have to like each other. They could honestly only be coming together to support the main character and the girl in the relationship. So it’s more a found family-type thing.
