Harem guys suck, they're usually depicted as some spineless or clueless wimp that for some reason or other that is left unexplained the usually near perfect heroines of the anime get attracted to (and sometimes obsessed to). From time to time, it's amusing and is worth a watch, but most of the time, it gets annoying and repetitive as the theme gets repeated throughout many anime or manga.

harem eh?? so you hate CLANNAD as well as KANON 2006?? they were pretty great anime for a harem type. how about School Days?? it was a harem, but still, not the stereotypical type that made it very good and interesting..

Not all Harem guys are weak ):. Kage Mamoru(Something like that, with the ninja dude) I Found him really cool. He kept a sense of soul and justice while living how he normally would. And the only one that was attracted to the normal him was his friend, Everyone already knew he was a Ninja, and so on.
I Also don't think things like Air/Clannad/Kanon would be counted too much as harem. I feel it balances very well with drama and romance. Because in most of them, In the end, something has to happen which makes em seem like they were dumped or something like that.

That is very true. I've been wondering about that myself. Why is it that most of Harem Animes depict guys as weak and spineless? Why would girls even be attracted to him?

Ah... I know why. Harem Animes are targeted those who can't get girls in real lives. It's an encouragement and it implies indirectly saying "ugly, and weak guys can get hot girls too". But the truth is that they really can't -_-.


The idea of the harem anime/manga was okay though, but just gets annoying that most of the guys are like that. At least there's some stuff like Clannad, where Tomoya is not spineless, clueless and weak, he's a delinquent who likes playing people. And from the looks of it, they're not all in love with him or some other stuff.

Just not repeat the spineless, weak guy-centered stuff.

Eh... Which is why I look at Love Hina in contempt.

1. He's weak
2. He's short
3. He's spineless
4. He's UGLY
5. He wears glasses
6. Well I don't care if he wears glasses or not, but they're BIG AND SQUARE. I think he's just attempting to act like a nerd... cuz he can't get into college -__-


I don't really know how some people get off on the "lovable loser" thing, but at least put some thing else into it. Like with Char or Scirocco from Gundam. It's not a harem anime, but then here are two characters who fricking have their own harems, and with good reason.

nope in shuffle he picked the right one in my opinion and if you guys choose to think that he should have picked kaede then... u'd be dissapointed in the ichigo 100% manga ending tho i liked it very much.

Well... most of us guys will always be satisfied who the person will end up with... (Usually picks out the hottest heroine)

Except for Shuffle.... Wtf.....

IF IT WAS KAEDE THEN I WOULD HAVE LOVED THIS ANIME BUT NOOOOOOOO IT JUST HAD TO BE ASA?!?!?!

I think a lot of guys like watching harem but a lot of times girls don't. I liked a few but mostly I got tired of breasts popping out and skirts hiking up.

I think I liked Ai Yori Aoshi the most cause Kaoru was cute and dependable. But that's one of the few I watched because I lose interest when the guy isn't well - interesting. And I'm not into shotacon (or is it lolicon) where the male lead is a kid and all the older women are in love with him.

P.S. FLCL was cool though cause Naota was cool and Haruko is not just weird, she's an alien.

Yeah. U mean like shuffle.



what do you mean by shuffle I like that he ended with asa and not the others.

any way do you think you could pick right away are do you think you would have to wait and get to know them better. which to get to know someone takes time.

I know that when a girl come up to confess to me that even if I really like them i will always say
let be freind first and wait about 4-7 month before i actually deiced If they are the right person for me.
this guy on shuffle have 4 girl that likes him so of course it take time to make sure he pick the right one and I think he did because if he pick kaede that relationship would be unhealthy since when you get to obsess
with some one you need to get away from them and that why he moved out since he saw this how kaede was.
then there sia which she could be a good wife and all but how rin is he need someone that not crazy
I mean the way she act is very crazy like rin is a normal guy so he need someone normal.
then there Nerine which is quiet normal but still not really a option if you notice on purpose they made her kinder seem to far away in a way. Any way about 95% of all heram end with the guy picken his childhood friend so I was glade it was different for once. Any way asa was always helping him even she usually did it in a way which at first made him mad. then other time he know right away that she help him and I think that he the type of guy which need some one to watch over him someone who can help him give him good advice which asa have always done for him.



I get what u meant. I had thought about this in this view before about the bad points of the rest of the girls. But ya know. Somehow i think Kaede was better. and more importantly shes not crazy until the part where Asa took Rin from her. Well who wouldnt get angry. O.o

Yea, I hate ASA too!!! I was rooting for Kaede and of all the girls he picked Asa. Whtas up with that....

Thats one of the worst anime ending ever.... I feel bad for Kaede whenever I remember shuffle.

Have you ever watched Fate/Stay Night before?


You think Fate/stay night counts as a harem?

A little bit. Harem doesn't necessary has to be all the girls over one guy. It is considered as one guy and many girls.


Well, I concede to your point, seeing as there are more than 3 that like the guy, and the fact that he's not a stereotypical harem guy is a bonus. He's a mage in command of some other kind of magic, able to fight with the best of them, even if he has a naive sense of justice (that actually improves up until he becomes Archer).

A pity that Kuzuki's romance got shafted, even if he was an unfeeling evil guy, he was cool.
