Harem, reverse harem, it's much the same no matter what the title. Various stereotypical girl/boy types are offered to the inevitable 'Mary/Marty Sue' character as potential boyfriend/girlfriends. Depending on the genre of the harem/reverse harem story, comedy, emo drama, ridiculous rescue and insanely unlikely compromising positions ensue. Most of them seem to revolve around otome./hentai games of late, so I'd think of them as a marketing tool.

Yes! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's sick of harems! There all basically the same. A loser male lead with no redeeming qualities whatsoever somehow has all these girls flocking after him like geese. It doesn't make any sense and makes me wanna puke! I mean, how degrading can you possibly get?! The only reasonable explanation I can think of for this is that the girls just want to find the most unattractive guy to chase after just to make themselves look better by comparison. Seriously, there needs to be more originality! (sigh) But I guess originality doesn't pay well in the anime industry. The animators and mangakas need to make a living somehow...

yes...the only harem franchise I actually like where the male characters are actually decent. If anyone's seen Isekai will know what i mean. I must admit, the best harems were set back in 90's anime.....there's only minimal series I could name made in this decade

I'll probably be labeled a curmugeon for saying it but I often think many of the anime today are a triumph of style over substance.

SO SICK of harem! Stale plotines that are actually stale fillers for visual novel sex scenes.

It's a bit overdone, but otherwise I don't have a problem with it.

Harem by itself isn't bad. It's just that far too many harem animes are accompanied by lack of character development, little plot, far too much ecchi and cheap laughs.
For example, if you think about it, Zetsubou Sensei can TECHNICALLY be classified as harem (In the manga, there is a bit more romance).

Umi No Misaki is a harem genre manga that I enjoy.

There's mountains of fan service but the author still works in a lot of satisfying character development.

Tired of this genre? Why not try a different one? Regardless if you like it or not, it now part of current trend since writers can't sell their stories without fanservice!
