YnS is an omnibus anime; essentially it resets the world every few episodes so that the main character can get together with a different girl. It's not a dream--just one way of translating a multi-ending visual novel into anime format. I really like the format, but it's not for everyone.

The other omnibus anime that gets bandied about is Amagami SS--one of my great guilty pleasures.

I'm also a sucker for Mayo Chiki, also in the category of harem anime.

But I'm surprised that people aren't mentioning some of the most popular harem anime:

The World God Only Knows (a harem spoof that, is itself, a great harem show)
Haganai (really hope there is a third season)
Clannad and Kanon (the Visual Arts/Key greats)
Date A Live and A Certain Magical Index (if you like your harem with a side of sci-fi action)
Monogatari Series (if you like your harem with witty dialogue, blood, and monsters)

You need to watch more harems.

Anyway to the original poster I'm not sure if you mean my favorite harem anime or a harem where I like all the girls, so I'll give you both.

My favorite harem anime is Yosuga no Sora
As for one where I like all the girls it would have to be Kanon.


I was joking

Monogatari is horrible? Clannad is horrible? Kanon is horrible? The World God Only Knows is horrible?

All are very highly regarded anime, all are very well done, and all are harems.

Now, you may not LIKE any of those shows; personal tastes do vary. I personally don't like extremely dark and/or gory shows, ala Death Note, Gantz, or Elfen Lied. But I wouldn't say that those shows are "horrible" in an absolute sense. Some people love those shows because they have different tastes than I do, and that's okay.

That is, unless you're just trolling, in which case lets just call each other Hitler-loving Communists and get on with our lives...

I really wouldn't class Monogatari and Clannad as harems lol.

Monogatari doesn't have other routes, just because there are various characters surrounding the MC, doens't make it a harem. Most of them dont even want him in that way and neither does he.

Clannad seems to be specifically a romance focusing on one route, not all of them. Yes their are arcs that deal with character in particular but its not like hes going around trying to get in all of their pants. (mind you its been a while since watching Clannad),

Yeah, but you like harems, even when they're bad lol. The only one I've seen you really dislike was Rail Wars. (and maybe you didn't like Golden Time?)

Maybe GT isn't a harem... It failed my 3 episode test lol. I just remember Rito comparing it unfavorably against Toradora.

In Monogatari, three of the girls directly profess their love for the MC (Hitagi, Tsubasa, and Nadeko), a fourth expresses love for his girlfriend but also indicates that she has some feelings for him as well (Suruga), and that's not counting the overly-possessive vampire or his just-this-side-of proprietary relationship with his sisters (see Tsukihi Phoenix, Part 1). If that's not a harem, what is?

As for Clannad, you are right that in the first season only four of the girls express a romantic interest in the lead (Nagisa, the twins, and Tomoyo)...

Now, it is true that the MC only has eyes for one girl in both cases. But the same can be said of Love Hina, one of the supposed originators of the modern genre.

Rail Wars is complete and utter shit and emphasizes everything that is wrong with harems.

Golden Time isn't a harem but the drama bullshit makes Toradora (which is a harem) tame in comparison. And I still don't understand the praise for it being a college setting. You can barely tell the difference between that and a high school one, just take away the uniforms and smaller classrooms. Hell, college is basically high school but bigger anyway.
