I was just wondering on what girls' thoughts are on a male centered harem anime that involves many girls attracted that one guy. I know a guy in that situation would just feel like a god, but looking at it from a girl's perspective watching it, it may seem disrespectful and disgusting for a guy leading on many girls.

I think Harems are funny and entertaining because all the girls are doing different bizarre things to get that one guy. Sometimes it can get a bit weird though *cough Rosario Vampire

It depends, many of them like to invoke their viewers into thinking,

if you are a stay-at-home loser, the girls will eventually come to you. Not.

let's not forget reverse harem*

Just thought I'd mention that most harem anime I've been exposed to do not involve a "player" leading on a bunch of girls. Usually its a bunch of girls who for some reason find the harem lead guy attractive and all decide to stake a claim on said guy without his really having any say in the matter.

I don't find it disrespectful, as harems don't only apply to female characters, they also make male characters stupid enough to fall for one main female character.

I find harem, most of the time, annoying because the main character does not possess any likeable qualities... yet all these characters are falling for them... it's just stupid.

Example of an annoying harem - Oreshura, Uta no prince sama
Example of OK harem - Ouran High School.

True story, I can personally confirm this. Including the "not" part.

I agree with what your saying I found the main chars unlikable to even like :/ the girls personalitys are most likely reasonable but some main chars in these harem series I don't really find them special either, then again I watch harem anime cause I'm bi xD even if I don't like the main character at least I can still enjoy this genre for a laugh and abit of fan service.

I like how alot of them lampshade the ludicrous situation and don't seem to have the goal of being taken seriously. Also, I appreciate how they tend to be humorous enough for me to at least get a few laughs. The fanservice can be over-bearing, though. That goes for reverse harems, too. I also admit that some barely touch on the supposed harem theme and/or render it as a relatively minor subplot, like the Hakuouki series (the first two seasons).

Meh, it's a hit or miss with me. Most harems I've come across have the male character to be kind of a push over or a whiny little kid. I'm more of the Shoujo fan.
