Once I find Comedy, Drama, Romance in an anime, I'll watch it even if there's no harem or not...

I really don't care about it but its ok with me since it makes the whole manga/anime series longer and more interesting.

Being indecive is natural if you're surrounded with many beautiful,cute girls specially if they really love you.If the guy don't choose the girl i like to end up with him i just really dissappointed.Mostly in harem tsundere type girls wins which makes me mad.I prefer shy,cute and kind girls.

if the guy isn't indecisive about which girl he picks, you can't have a harem series. it would be: introduce girls, he picks one, bam, over in 2-4 episodes.... which is why harem animes can get very very very annoying at times. (not all, not always, but when they do....)

Bahh i hate harem guys, but no matter how spineless and w/e they look its designed that way to motivate the spineless guys In real life harem isnt exactly shoujo it has the romance concept but if you cearly take a look at the mindset for these anime's its mostly for motivation for guys who cant seem to talk to girls.

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.


It's called Kage Kara Mamoru! for anybody who was wondering.

A harem anime is described as being an anime where a more of a "loser" male protaganist suddenly becomes surrounded by 3 or more beautiful woman, usually living with at least one of them, who have some type of affection toward the lead male protaganist. A harem anime is also made up of unrequited love and misunderstandings. So I believe that Clannad, Kanon, and Air fit the bill here perfectly. They are not your "normal" harem anime's, true, but they are harem none the less.

If anybody is ever confused on what makes a "harem" anime, just look it up on wikipedia. Anime like Ah! My Goddess, Ranma 1/2, and Tactical Roar would all be considered harem, even thogh it is very readily apparent who the male protaganist will end up with in the end. Same would go for Ai Yori Aoshi.

There are also reverse harem anime, such as Ouran High School Host Club, that are when one female lead character is surrounded by 3 or more good looking males. Fruits Basket is another example.

Sorry for posting twice, but I wanted to respond to this comment. Forgive me this one time, please!! lol


Of course I Know that Clannad/Air/Kanon are similar to Harems, I was just trying to point out that Harem animes can have exceptionally amazing stories, plots and cast. Not everyone has to be a loser of any sort. It's a shame the word "Harem" Has been described very Stereotypically. I Think most Harems(Most...) Are exceptionally well done. The story is amazing, and shows the lead character building up. Ah! My Goddess has a good story with romance and drama that build into something that had exceptional potential. So do Ranma and Tactical Roar. Well. what I'm trying to say is: People shouldn't think of Harems only as some perverted type of show. It took alot of great minds to create something so beautiful(Clannad, Air etc.). I Preferred not to call them a Harem because their stories were defenitely amazing. Fruits Basket would hardly make a harem to me because it's trying to teach Morals rather than trying to focus on some cheesey romance.

Well. I don't really know anymore. I Believe Harems are amazingly well done. They have great story, Amazing build ups and dramas, and I think they equally match other genres out there. I Don't see why everyone thinks Harems are just guys hanging around with other girls just for the shear Eye candy. Though Shuffle, I could say was a mini exception. He did end up with someone, but he still ended up trying to flirt with them. Though he was annoying, I was amazed by his courage near the end of the series.

~Well, None the less. I'm a very weird person. Don't mind my useless rants and such. I just want people to know that Harems aren't only about weak guys getting girls for no apparent reason. I think(Most of the time) The male protagonists deserve the female(s). Except for Really...Purely concentrated on, Stereotypically viewed Harems. Such as School Days(Once again, an amazingly built story, even if the ending was hated) and Love Love(Hated that guy >_>;, Though the females were roled well).



i a gree , why do ppl dislike harems so much ?

yeah they are very indecisive and they arent that good looking or good enough to deserve plenty pretty girls to compete for him. in the end i feel sorry for the other girls. maybe love triangle is good, but more than that i think it just makes it annoying.

I don't normally like Female-harems, but all of the male-harems I've watched - a la Wallflower or Ouran High School Host Club - I have adored.
I think it's more subject matter though, and a lot of anime with female-harems seem to like the sexy side a little too much for my tastes.
