I guess Yuuki Rito. I don't know how to explain it.

I'm not sure about worst of all time. But I do know Ichika from IS should go on a bro date with Issei from HS dxd and get some tips, that guy doesn't hold back haha



The thing is, in terms of character, Ken Sugisaki from Seitokai no Ichizon is still the epitome. He actually has a sound reason for wanting the harem in the first place.

If you're looking for advice, he should be the first place you go to.

Yeah.... When pressured to say if he was a monster or not - people would say monster. In most heart of hearts of men - they would think hero!

While I do think he is horrible - he is not the worst harem main character. He actually made progress with many girls. A horrible harem main character would be one who just keeps all girls "on their hook." I can't think of specifics right now, but my answer would essentially be many harem main characters ever. They are just a tad less of a selfish asshole than Itou, BUT - he as a harem main character being THAT KIND of selfish is a good thing.

QFT.

Sugisaki is probably my favorite Harem Lead of all time.

As for my least favorite...

...I'd guess I'd pick Ichika? Although that's probably more of a knock on how much I disliked Season 2 than Ichika as a character.

I'd go with the obvious one first.

1) Ichika from IS - The dude clearly has learning difficulties.

2) Takayama from Rail Wars - Pure and unbridled author self insertion. Does absolutely NOTHING of use throughout the series and just aquires a harem without even realising it. Not only that but he is a complete dick to one of them and doesn't know he is being a dick.

3) Akatsuki from Hagure - This guy is what happens when you take an actually good harem protag like Godou from Campione and make him a sex offender and give all the girls in his harem capture bonding/beaten wife syndrome. Sexually abuse them till they fall for you... good job there...

4) ALL protags from series that are getting dragged out for cash - Rito from TLR, Raku from Nisekoi; you get the idea. They know what the situation is and could easily make a decision at any time but NOPE they just gotta drag it out.

It is sadly harder to think of good harem protags than bad ones. Bad ones just proliferate the genre.

As others have said, anyone with any sort of morals or ethics finds him completely despicable. It is possible to actually have a harem relationship without lacking an ethical code or being denser than unobtainium. It just takes finding the right lovers (ones who are actually happy in that sort of relationship). I know several families (more than 2 spouses, though not legally recognized as such) like this. It takes more work than just being a couple.

Can't you find guys like Makoto in the real world? Do you hate those guys too?

Yes, you can. And, I do hate them. They are scum who give real men a bad name.

Obviously Takayama is the worst lead of all time, at least Ichika was funny because he was the densest substance in the known universe. xD

I'm not saying that Tsukune from Rosario + Vampire is the worst, but the way he snubs Moka is a dick move. The fact he even has to think about who to choose.......is just beyond me. Seriously, that shouldn't even be topic that comes up between Tsukune and Moka.

I'll go with Rito from ToLoveRu. He has the power to have his entire harem, he doesn't even have to choose, yet all he ends up as is a clumsy prudent dufus. It's like there is some universal law that dictates that if Rito is around a girl, he will trip and end up in a promiscuous position with her.

My theory is that all those "accidents" are caused by his suppressed libido screaming to get out.
