There are a lot of great romances in anime and manga – in fact, it’s one of the most popular genres! It’s a heart fluttering journey of two consenting people choosing to share a life together.

Except for these series…they think “consent” is optional. Here are some “romance” works that wrongfully excuse sexual harassment as a form of love.

1. Okane ga Nai

Okane ga Nai

A university student is sold to an older man as payment for a debt. Naturally, the older man forces himself onto the young lad, awakens his gay side, and start a vague thing called a “relationship.”


Media often takes things to the extreme for humor or to stand out among other series and it’s great to have open artistic expression. But hopefully no fan is taking notes from these shows as being good models for how to get a date.

2. Diabolik Lovers

Diabolik Lovers

This is a reverse harem that is lead be a very timid girl named Yui Komori, who is forced to live with hunky vampires. The guys are constantly verbally and physically abusing Yui, and she just accepts it. Bullying someone isn’t a healthy way to start a relationship
