In every harem anime I have ever watched, the male protagonist is always the main character. He protects people, females, and can say profound things. Are these things suppose to lure viewer into watch harem anime or anime with a side of harem?

I don't watch any harem animes just for the main character but for a combination of things which include the main character. Negima has both good characters (especially Negi) and a good story so a combination of those things got me into watching that and then reading the manga which is way better due to it not being cut short. Some harem animes are pretty good comedies as well like Love Hina so good comedy can make me watch some harem animes.

Usually the main character is just a week nerdy pussy. obviously people watch harem for either the comedy, the girls, or story.

the best main harem character is probably Tomoya Okazaki

I'm pretty sure what leads people in is the comedy and sometimes the plot. There are many cliché manga/anime harem out there, but the best have something peculiar going for them.

Sora No Otoshimono has the hilarious situations. The main character alone is reason enough to watch it.

Rosario + Vampire, in particular the first half of Part 1, had very interesting battles.

Love Hina is basically the mother of all harem titles. EVen though it has every cliché imaginable for a harem, is still excellent.

I barely watch harems, usually because they're over-rated, but if I do happen to it's for the plot.

I'm not really into most harems because I can't stand a weak/nerdy/overly perverted protagonist. The ones tha I did enjoy were Seitokai no Ichizon for the comedy and Negima for the comedy/action.

No. And also, harems are called harems because harem means "a group of women associated in any way with one man or household."

Well. Actually, even if the main guy is sexy and awesome, if the girls are annoying twats then I don't bother.

...did that sound mean?

Hayate from HnG, Negi from MSN, and Keima from TWGOK all DESERVE their harems because they're so awesome. And their girls aren't all annoying. So I like em. (mm. I dislike Asuna and some of the other girls from these anime though.)



And for those who say the main guy in every harem is weak and annoying, go watch a CDrama set ancient-ly. One by TVB will do. And tell me you aren't fcking scared to death of the guy.

If im watching a harem....Im looking for 3 things

1. Cute girls with interesting personalities
2. Cool side characters. This is really important to me
3. Side character romance. (Yea I know since its a harem this practically never happens....but honestly....Id much rather see side character romance than see main character romance)
