its not the harem aspect that bothers me its the way they present females in those animes and that creates this unfavorable stereotype that many have come to expect


It's fiction bro, don't take it to seriously. That's like getting upset at bleach or naruto because they have to much filler.


unfortunately i cant its disgusting and im disgusted to be associated with anyone who actually likes that bs

The only harem I've actually managed to watch(and love) is Zero No Tsukaima Other Harems just gives you a typical useless main lead with female characters I can't stand But that's just my opinion since I have a soft spot for tsunderes

Love Hina was probably the only Harem anime I ever liked.

Shuffle, Amaenaidyo, Ichigo 100%, Maburaho, Green Green, Zero no Tsukaima and Demon King all sucked.

I never post on these boards, but I noticed the topic on the main page, and decided to browse through.

I'm disappointed that not a single person has mentioned Ranma 1/2 yet. While yes, it does fit into other genres as well, Ranma 1/2 is basically the prototype from which the harem genre was created, and it's still one of the best examples of how to do it right.

Itwiggles, while Ranma (and Tenchi and Ah! Megam-Sama) did indeed what set the "modern standard" that we most often associate with, the first harem overall would be Rumiko Takahashi's first big work, Urusei Yatsura .

You're absolutely right about Urusei Yatsura being the first harem-esque anime, but - as you said - it was Ranma that set the standard for modern harem anime. Urusei Yatsura contained the beginnings of the idea, but it wasn't until Ranma that those ideas really started coming together.

I'm just glad I'm not the only person old enough to remember that stuff. Takahashi had an enormous influence on anime's growth, and her works still hold up favorably today, but they hardly ever get the recognition they deserve.

Yeah, I do love harem anime. But yeah. a lot of them are recycling the old stuff over and over again. Although some are unique. But the genres is becoming way overuse. I like to see something different in that genre for a change.

I'm only 24. Much of what I know on Urusei Yatsura is from online sources and reading the old comics at a local library.
