errr... no as the desciption I've posted says... it's not just about being a harem lead. It's about being almost perfect in any field.

Also that "bratty" part is a reference to Mary Sue.


...Which makes much more sense for him to have a harem rather than some guy like Keitaro in Love Hina. At least the admiration is more justified here.
This is again a personal "I like it" vs. "I don't like it" matter *shrug*

p.s. I love the heroine in Vision of Escaflowne. She is also perfect as far as I remember, but I don't hear too many complaints about Hitomi being Mary-Sue.

I want to show you something interesting. This was Newtype's Japan popularity poll:

While the author see it as "decline of mankind" (see the comments section for more fun remarks) I see it as a case of value dissonance brought about by a difference in culture:

Even though I did spend my adult life in the United States, I was born in Taiwan.

Greetings,

As there already is an ongoing Sword Art Online discussion I'm afraid that even though it has spurred quite a few responses that I have no choice but to classify this as a duplicate topic and close it.
