Is it me, or are the majority of the anime that Crunchyroll acquires seem to involve harem or reverse harem? Granted anime like Erin and Skip Beat seem to be exceptions to this rule, but before Crunchyroll pulled the plug on fan subtitles, the range of titles and what they contained seemed to be higher.

I hate to say this, but dude, what's up with all of the harem and reverse harem? Some of the titles seem to be pure fan service too... making this site seem a bit leaning towards a gamer's attitude of anime?

I know, someone will say if you don't like it, go watch something else, and so on, but I'm asking for more variety beyond the whole girl has a bunch of guys and the whole guy forgets in ex-hentai game situation and has a bunch of girls, or the third choice is fan service (Saki--I wish they'd cut the fan service crap. --;;).

Doesn't Shugo Chara, Nodame Cantible and Skip Beat's popularity kinda of demonstrate that Harem isn't the only thing we watch? Maybe it's just me, but I'd like to see some high quality shoujo that isn't OMG tons of guys. But develops a good storyline. (Saiunkoku Monotagari was kind of reverse harem, but the focus was more really awesome political storyline.. so I'm willing to compromise)

I heard there are lots of shoujo lineup for this fall that aren't reverse harem, but the only ones I see are harem. Out of the 10-20 titles announced, what does Crunchyroll acquire for the fall? Harem. Can't a girl (or sheep) ask for some variety?

I hope this doesn't sound like whining, but I think crunchyroll has a wider audience than what they are catering to.

It's a business, is it not? Please, some variety. (I also miss Skip Beat).

If I'm wrong, please demonstrate through title listing... 'cause I know the majority of anime isn't all harem or reverse harem. =P I've watched enough anime to know that.

Shugo Chara is pretty harem-loli-fan-service IMO, but I dunno
