Harems whether you view them as good or bad, they exist and they are EVERYWHERE
Considering how overused harems are i'm suprised nobody has made a scale for them before
so without further ado, I present you with The Color-Coded Guide to Harems.

Code Green A harem of size 3-4 as seen in shows like Toradora!
A harem of manageable size that's too large to be a love triangle but too small to be a code yellow/red, often consists of one "Main" love interest and a few sideplots for said main interest to get jealous over.


Code Yellow A harem of size 5-6 as seen in shows like The Bladedance of Elementalers
A harem of XL size that usually involves a REALLY oblivious protagonist that often straight up ignores the feelings of his harem.


Code RED A oversized harem of size 7-12 as seen in shows like Trinity Seven
This level of harem will either feature a oblivious protagonist or a protagonist trying for a tsundere or something similar outside of his harem

Anything above a 12-person harem is considered an Anomaly and is usually so huge it's nearly unmanageable and hard to follow, hence why harems often stay in the code yellow-low red zone.

this is still a work in progress scale, it's pretty barebones right now

Let's see...

Akane, Ukyo, Shampoo, Kodachi, technically Ling Ling and Lung Lung, technically Nabiki for a short time, and an assorted array of oneshot characters Genma sold Ranma's betrothal to (mostly for food).

CODE RED! CODE RED!

Scramble the jets!

If I had an anime, mine would be anomaly.
I just need over +200 episodes to give each girl the corresponding character development.

It definitely fits the anomaly category . Luckily it had 26 episodes to build characters and story both.
