I'm sad that the harem end option is so uncommon

Either they all get together, or none of them get together. I don't like seeing the other girls (if they're cute) get hurt from not being the one chosen.

1 more chapter R+V, what will you do...

Ah...Asuna..."perfect girl" sike. Sugu may be an idiot, but she's cute... with big boobs

If not, Minamoto's got a fair shot.

It might happen someday!

I'm willing to wait patiently while they accumulate all the source material they need.

Just wish it'd happen faster, but I'll wait, but I wish they'd hurry, but I hope they take their time, but--

He's gonna goof up somewhere. Or just end up with the aunt in the end. All according to plan.

The artist of Trinity Seven has done h-doujinshi.

This requires research. I'll be back later.


Isn't it like 1 chapter a month (or was it 2 months? I might be confusing it with TLR:D)
And we're only at chapter 30 something? I don't want them to make an anime if they [email protected] up the adaptation because of lack of material.

This just needed to be quoted to bring further emphasis. Also Harem ending is best ending. Oh and Sugu wins, with boobs.

unless all that which has already happened is just as planned, and the Aunt's efforts come to fruition. #HaremEnd

quick search at mangaupdates' database should do the trick. Countrouble, one of his other works is pretty good as well.

Monthly and they're up to chapter 35. And I agree, so we'll probably have to wait a fair while.

The author treated her as a third-wheel and I accordingly viewed her as such.

In any-case it's back to square one, one girl always loses if it's not #HaremEnd



edit: since I read a manga called "Harem End" I feel that for each time that it is typed, that it seems like a bad joke

I literally just caught up on Trinity Seven today after choosing it at random. Arata is probably one of my favorite MC's from any source on entertainment, his conversations with the other characters are hilarious.

As far as the forum topic goes. I actually can't think of a reason that the harem end is so uncommon besides it being pretty unrealistic. I usually play favorites. These favorites almost always win so I'm pretty simple minded to my favorites since the author usually makes the person who wins in the end the better character for the majority of the audience

Why not have them all?

Nothing is more shallow, impersonal, and meaningless than polygamy, but whatever floats your boat. Luckily, for people of depth and intensity, harems don't happen as frequently as you would like them to.

Because all you get are more Ranma 1/2 endings.

And nobody likes those endless not-ending endings.

I'd much rather see the Trap win, I mean COME ONE THEY NEVER WIN!

Genshiken, you're my only hope!

Well for one, from a writer's perspective it is very attractive to leave room for a sequel to the original series. The problem with writing a decisive end is that you are basically writing yourself into a corner, just one that the audience approves of.

Assuming you go with a harem, what then? You basically have the main portion of School Days (a show that DID choose the harem ending, and who's ending is a good soliloquy for a bad harem).

Of all the harems that I have seen, I think the best one is The World God Only Knows, because it handled the 'After' part well (they forget), and still managed to make all of the girls interesting.

A GOOD harem ending is hard to do, and not necessarily worth it.

P.S. Asuna > Suguha


I've always considered TWGOK a rom-com (step by step harem) because not enough girls at the same time love him (because like you said, they're made to forget).

I only consider the current


Asuna > Sugu? Those be fighting words



lol


Are you caught up on the show? Because I am fairly certain the most recent season covers the Goddess arc.

Asuna > Suguha is the words of someone who read the novels (which had better romance) and ain't down for no sister fuckin'.

I don't like harem endings. I like unpredictability, and thinking the protagonist is going to pick one girl when suddenly he falls in love with another is always so shocking. I think that this is probably how producers may think, as well. Frankly, harems are pretty cliche, in that they're all filled with more than one events that can qualify as a cliche themselves, y'know? Like...a beach episode, or a huge misunderstanding every other episode, and...well, you get the picture. In order to spice up harem anime, they get the audience involved by setting up certain situations so that the watchers can attempt to predict who the protagonist will fall in love with.

Let me take Shuffle!, for instance, because it's freshest in my head since I've seen both the original series and the "Memories" series.

(Shuffle! main plot spoiler inside.)
