Harem Animes.

Guy Harems - One guy (a sap, weakling, plain, goody two-shoes = BORING **some exceptions) + several girls (3+) who like the guy for boring reasons (he is sweet, kind, was nice when I was little *helped catch my hat when it blowed away in the wind* *urggg*. Popular and almost ALWAYS used female character persona------- The quiet shy girl, the girl-next-door-childhood-friend, the girl he like that moved away and suddenly has moved backed, the tough girl (but she is really sweet and girly on the inside). Oh and it can't be a good harem anime unless he never really acknowledges one girl above the rest (a.k.a tells the other girls to bug off b/c he chooses *insert name*), he just ignores it and never even picks a girl or he bounces between all possible love interest and can't decide or is ignorant of the romance situation ENTIRELY

Marburaho
Onegai Teacher
Onegai Twins
A Gift of Eternal Rainbow
Da Capo
Rosario Vampire
Tenchi Muyo
Sister Princess
Kanon
Final Approach
Kanokan
Love Hina
Negima
Lovely Idol
Tokemiki Only Love
Green Green
Oh My Goddess
Ranma 1/2
Comic Party
Shuffle
Ai Yori Aoshi
Boys Be
I's Pure
Macademi Wasshoi
He is my noble master
Steel Angel Kurumi
Vandread
Zero no Tsukaima
Toradora


AND SO MANY MORE BUT I THINK YOU GET MY POINT

Girl Harems - One Girl (shy, quiet, "pure") many guys (5+) - Girl hardly shows interest in one guys over another completely (and if she does they don't get together romantically), never ends up with one guy in particular, guys are always saving her or helping her overcome her own weakness

Angelique (You can pick any of the FOUR seasons because they ALL end the SAME)
La Corda D' Oro
Haruka
Saiunkoku
Ouran Host
Shugo Chara (it is not classified as a harem but I think it is: they are quite a few males in this series
(Tadase, Ikuto, the cross-dresser, the vice president samurai guy, the Indian Prince, the middle schooler) EVERY
MAIN OR SECONDARY male character has romantic feelings for Amu and like a good shoujo harem - she never
or picks one person or the other) *HINTS DON'T COUNT* - why - because there are hints for every character


Sorry for the long post, examples far larger then expected, these were just off the top on my head *honestly* :D

i am not kidding. have you ever had deja vu when watching an anime? like youve seen it somewhere before? believe me, you HAVE! why? because a lot of animes have a lot of the same themes.

for example: ever heard of an anime where the boy is weak and bullied....then he finds something he can do so good that others end up looking up to him. then he ends up mastering that particular field of whatever hes doing? yeah i can name three animes from the top of my head that have that exact theme

1) Naruto
2) History's strongest disciple kenichi
3)Whistle!

I DARE YOU TO TELL ME THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!

but what gets me most is.....why? why repeat the exact theme over and over again? cant they think up something else? so.....WHAT ANIME THEME IS MOST NOTICABLE TO YOU GUYS?!


Let me tell you this, originality in Anime in this time of age is almost impossible ... The only Anime I have seen so far that ACTUALLY shows originality would be Library Wars (there's probably more, but I can't remember them at the momment)...

Taking things from others Animes is okay as long as you make it unique in your own special way. Although a fair amount of Anime fails to do it properly .


Well I kinda think it depends on the context of originality cause like you know you mentioned library wars as original... to an extent that is true. Meaning, in terms of anime, i think its really original because I haven't seen an anime that takes that kind of route, or path, in terms of storyline, but if you look at books Fahrenheit 451 (i think) alot of the plot seems to be based off that book...

SAILOR MOON
Omg one of the most common themes is the magical girls series like SAILOR MOON!!!!!! After that comes like Tokyo Mew Mew and other animes just like it!!!!!!!!! Too many animes are like that but sailor moon is still the best!
One of the most original would have to be Kino' Journey, there is so much meaning behind it and I have yet to find another anime like it. But if anone does find one you should tell me!

Girl like boy. Boy doesn't share feelings. Girl keeps trying to get the boy to like her. Boy likes Girl. Girl doesn't know. Boy kisses girl. Boy and Girl get together.

This plot is the most common plot worldwide, i've seen this in movies, dramas,animes everywhere. The main idea behind this is that the world supports the underdogs n we all want to see them win!! This will probably be going on forever.


haha......it doesnt matter what country or whatever....producers and script writers cannot help writing a good script based on an old one!
