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)


Hey I said Kanon lol. But I'm actually kinda liking seeing some of the less popular harems listed (gives me some good shows to watch 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),




I don't know about Monogatari since I've never watched it. But Clannad is most definitely a harem. Kanon does just Clannad does by the way. But while the guy only really has eyes for the main heroine, it doesn't stop all the other girls from having eyes for him. Hence he's surrounded by girls (and usually one guy) and that's all that's required of a harem. Only these guys end up picking one girl.

It depends on what you are looking for in a harem.

When I watch harems I do it because they are high in comedy, high in sex appeal, medium in romance, and low in drama and hard feelings.
It's like softcore porn with a happy story for me. I don't desire anything else from it.

AK is right as well. And I'm being completely serious this time.


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?)


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.

??? This is the same in most Harems. the MC has multiple characters into them but the MC is not taking what is on offer.

Wait are you guys talking about Golden Time? That definitely wasn't a harem.

Banri(1) <-> Linda

Banri(2) <-> Kouko

Oka-chan -> Yana-san -> Linda -> Banri <-> Kouko

I don't think that really constitutes a harem.

That was borderline harem but tipping to the non-harem side. After all we didn't really know about Minori's feelings until the end. And the other chick was more like close friends than anything.
