10. Clockwork Planet

Clockwork Planet master-servant romance anime

From the name itself, you could tell this one involves lots and lots of clocks. Clockwork Planet happens in a world where a clock master named Y created a new world with cogs and gears.

Currently, a guy named Naoto Miura wants to be someone like him, but before his dreams come true, female automation named RyuZU lands right on his doorstep. The two soon realize the world that is made of cogs and gears is about to fall apart and there’s only one way to fix it.

This is one of those shows that dwells on the fantasy and sci-fi elements rather than the romance but don’t worry, there is some good human automation master-servant romance as well and even though it sounded weird, it’s not so weird once you start watching it.

09. They Are My Noble Masters

They Are My Noble Masters harem ecchi anime

This is those no money so gotta be the servant to someone type of romance anime. Our main character and his sister leave their home because of a family trouble but find out that you need money to survive in this world. I know these two are geniuses.

So, they decide to work for the three sisters of the Kuonji family and it turns out that that isn’t as great as they thought. Now even though this is labeled as an ecchi anime, this isn’t ecchi at all.

But since this is based on a visual novel, you get tons of romance plus some good old maid butler master-servant relationship. Sure, it might not have any deeper meaning, but come on, people just watch an anime for entertainment once.

08. Rozen Maiden

Rozen Maiden master-servant romance anime

Back in the day, I used to confuse this with Gosick, who doesn’t. The main girls look exactly the same and here we have a main character like every one of you. He purchases things online and sends them back before the trial period ends.

One day he gets a doll as a gift and this isn’t a normal doll. This one can walk and talk like an actual human being. How innovative is that? Turns out this girl is one of the five dolls of the Rozen maiden collection and these dolls are meant to kill each other.

Nope, this isn’t a tragic anime so don’t gather your tissue boxes. This anime has the tag comedy labeled right in front of it, so go watch this anime if you want a funny master doll relationship.

IMDB(6.9)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 3(37 Ep.)


07. Unbreakable Machine-Doll

Romance Anime With Overprotective MC

Yes, I purposely introduced two anime with dolls one after the other just to confuse you people. Here we have the country’s genius army deciding to make dolls to fight wars, and this time, the doll’s name isn’t Violet Evergarden, so don’t worry no need for tissue boxes for this one either.

Raishin Akabane and his humanoid automation Yaya are people who have great skill in both offense and defense, but once they enter the school, they find that they have fallen into the lowest rank.

Now he takes part in the evening party, a battle royale where the puppeteers and their machine dolls fight to gain the top Wiseman position. Similar to other battle game anime, this one involves tons of strategy and fighting but similar to Rozen Maiden, we’ve got some romance as well.

IMDB(6.8)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


06. Princess Resurrection

Princess Resurrection master-servant romance anime

All right enough with the dolls, let’s move on to the princesses and here we have a guy who became a servant just because he couldn’t keep his desires in check.

One day he sees a girl about to die and thinks hey so she’s beautiful I’ll be sad if she dies and then saves her and turns out she’s a princess and he decides to reward the boy by making the poor guy her servant. Also, did I mention that the princess is the daughter of the king of monsters. If you stop questioning how biology works in anime, then you’ll see this is a very interesting premise.

When was the last time you saw a guy serving a monster princess? If you need zombies, vampires, and some really weird monsters like sharks, pandas, and killer dumplings, then this is the show for you. Yeah, there’s some good romance here as well.

IMDB(6.5)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(25 Ep.)


05. Princess Lover

Princess Lover anime where princess falls in love with a commoner

Once again, we have another show with princesses in it. If you like Princess Lover, you can also check out “the princesses falling in love with the commoner” as well. Here we have a girl who looks like Saber and this guy who owns his grandfather’s property.

The story happens when young Teppei gets all his grandfather’s property and should mingle with the nobility after he gets enrolled in a school for nobles. That’s all great but he soon realizes he also has an arranged marriage to a girl named Sylvia and let’s just say Sylvia doesn’t know how to give a good first impression.

There is also a questionable spin-off series for princess lovers, so make sure you choose the right series before you start watching this.

Dubbed – No

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


04. The Comic Artist and His Assistants

The Comic Artist and His Assistants Master-Servant Romance Anime

Here we have a pervert who is also a manga artist and even though he was a really weird personality there are lots of girls around him. Actually, all of them are his assistants but once you see the tags of this anime, you know where this is going.

This isn’t entirely a romance anime since it greatly focuses on its comedy aspects. The episodes show the daily lives of these characters and different situations they’re thrown into, like Lucky Star and Nichijou.

This means you get the good old beach episodes, hot spring episodes, the episode where the girl is sick, and all those good old comedy tropes. The characters are also really enjoyable but sometimes the main character’s personality can get a bit too annoying.

IMDB(6.4)

Dubbed – No

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


03. Inu X Boku Secret Service

Romance Anime With Overprotective MC

Normally it’s the girl who comes to the boy and says hey become my servant, but this time, the guy comes to the girl and decides to become her bodyguard. Inu X Boku follows a sheltered daughter of a wealthy family named Ririchiyo Shirakiin, and Riri wants to live on her own so she moves into a high-security apartment complex where she finds out that her neighbors, as well as herself, are all half demons.

Now it’s time to get a bodyguard and even though Riri doesn’t ask for one, she finds herself served by Soushi Miketsukami, a guy who transforms into a demon if anyone touches the girl he likes.

The anime also gives the two main characters tons of character development. Both the main characters have their flaws and you can see them correcting their flaws as they move forward in the story.

IMDB(7.0)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


02. Hayate The Combat Butler

Romance Anime With Overprotective MC

This is once again one of those anime you can guess from the title this anime is about a butler named Hayate, and guess what? The guy’s really good at combat so why does he become a butler.

Well, his parents had a ton of debts, so they decided to leave the debt to their son and run away. Yeah, I know worst parenting, but there is a tsuredure Nagi to save our main character from depression.

Also remember, Hayate has a ton of filler episodes. Half of the first season is completely filler, so make sure to watch all of the episodes adapted from the manga. Overall, it’s a really great master-servant romance anime with an overprotective guy becoming the butler of an annoying tsuredure.

IMDB(6.9)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 4(101 Ep.)


01. Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama Kiss underrated action romance anime

To finish off our list, we have Kamisama Kiss because what’s better romance than the love between deities and spirits. Kamisama Kiss starts when Nanami Momozono is kicked out of her house after her father spends all his money on gambling.

Luckily a man named Mikage offers her to stay at his house as she saves him from a dog. Nanami agrees but soon learns Mikage used to be the earth deity and now has awarded the position to her.

There she meets Tomoe Mikage’s familiar and learns that he is your good old bad boy who loves to pull some pranks. The most interesting part of this series is Nanami and Tomoe’s relationship. It’s a fun, strange and also pretty amusing one.

For romance anime, this ticks all the boxes and if you want some master-servant love drama, then Kamisama Kiss is the best anime you can watch. So, don’t forget to add this to your watch list.
