Japanese Fans Rank Anime's Most Unforgivable Harem Heroes

Ranking site Goo has published the results of their poll, asking fans which characters are so overly blessed/cursed with their ability to gather members of the opposite sex that you can't help but feel unforgivable jealousy

After Bubblegum Crisis, Masaki Kajishima and Hiroki Hayashi played with the trend of having a cast largely comprised of one gender, plus a representative of the other. They mixed that in ideas in a comedy version of the cyber-action show with the little brother at its center. And, they got Tenchi Muyo. That sci-fi comedy sounds simple and fun enough, but they wound up contributing to popularizing the harem genre and developing a singularly powerful character intermarried with the ruling bodies of the universe through a convoluted mythos. And, that's unforgivable. 

 

Ranking site Goo has published the results of their poll, asking fans which characters are so overly blessed/cursed with their ability to gather members of the opposite sex that you can't help but feel unforgivable jealousy. Of course Tenchi is near the top, but he's up against Kirito, who couldn't stop at in-game marrying Asuna plus hooking up with her IRL, not to mention Rito Yūki, who has peers, teacher, even married women in his entourage.
