What's your favorite harem, /a/?
Don't even pretend that you don't like this shit.
Damn, I'm surprised. I came here to post just that. It was my first harem and it holds a special place in my heart. And to top it all off
best girl won.
I've only seen like 6. But I liked Kore wa Zombie desu ka a lot. Actually I can't think of any other Harem's I've seen except Baka & Test. And Acchi Kochii is my favorite if it counts.
Shuffle! is awful. Everyone in their is certifiably insane. You have two different girls with multiple personality disorder, a yandere, and two suicidal idiots.
The ending episodes where the worst: Hurr, better let myself die, because somehow that will hurt my mom less than me using my powers. Hurr, better try to kill myself to convince her to use her powers.
What the fucking shit?
Also, Tenchi Muyo was my first and probably favorite harem.
I thought /a/ love negima?
Not very original but my favorite harem is haganai.
The show was hilarious as fuck. Few shows have made me laugh so much as this show did. The groups failed attempts at doing normalfag activities are hilarious and the fights between Yozora and Sena even more so.
Also Sena is a goddess and I would marry her immediately if I had the possibility to do so.
Are you saying if you had the opportunity to have had a school life like his you wouldn't have gone for the harem end with Sekai and Katsura Kotonoha (with benefits of side pussy).
Asobi ni Ikuyo has several horrendous problems, but I can almost overlook them all due to the the three female leads.
>No Love Hina
Gets duped by a desperate chick's hail mary play.
Get's totally one sidedly rekt by another chick.
I mean he doesn't even fight back at all just lets himself get knife fucked to death.
>HURR DURR he got laid though.
You are such a pathetic virgin. Kill urself.
It probably is Haganai, since it's so subversive of the genre in general. It recognizes its own silliness and the girls are all delightfully broken.
lol no. People recognize those as shounen-targeted ecchi that just pretends to have a meaningful plot. As such the show is an embarrassment.
I don't really consider SZS a harem since the MC has no interest in the girls.
Also an acceptable answer.
butthurt *monogatarifag detected. If you don't like getting called on your inability to distinguish a normal show from porn your cohort shouldn't have implied anyone but the underaged thinks *monogatari counts as an actual show.
Not that guy but you
>used lol no unironically
>pretends to have a meaningful plot
Are you retarded? Of course it's fanservice oriented, no one fucking denies that, but you have to be brain dead to think there isn't a meaningful plot with coherent themes and motifs going on.
>SZS isn't a harem because MC has no interest in the girls
I'm fucking done. You haven't even read the series and you're making retarded statements making yourself look like an asshole.
I can't argue that. He should of fought back. Probably didn't expect to get knifed. But then again Makoto was a lover not a fighter.
Nice bait. It's a shame you don't have these dubs to go with it
>you have to be brain dead to think there isn't a meaningful plot with coherent themes and motifs going on.
Oh shit, themes AND motifs!? It's totally literature. My bad. Gatarifags truly are the supreme gentlemen of animes.
Got mad nostalgia for this one. Alpha as fuck MC too.
>it's totally literature
No one said it's literature. Is every anime you watch literature? You said it pretends to have a meaningful plot and doesn't count as a show. You used a fucking Yuyushiki reaction image, please enlighten me on how that has more of a meaningful plot and better deserves to be considered an actual show.
>supreme gentlemen of animes
Yes, because we're elitist faggots who think monogatari is to be considered high literature. Here you are trying to look down on us lowly peasants who think monogatari is literature, wow you're so smart and cultured. Do you hear how fucking retarded you sound?
Was my first harem as well.
I dunno about best girl winning, but it had A girl win, which gave me rather high expectations for the genre. 8 years later and I'm still butthurt every time I watch a harem and indecisive faggot self-insert MC can't choose from one of the 3+ girls slobbering over him.
T7 had so much potential.
Arata is GOAT harem MC.
Girls are all great.
But everything else about the show is so ridiculously stupid.
The least they could have done is gone uncensored and shown breasticles.
Stupid steam and lights.
>lazily copy-pasted ahoge
I like ahoges, but that's just insulting. Each ahoge should be customized to the character.
Less diarrhea of the mouth wouldn't have hurt either.
He was good, I dunno about GOAT though. My fav harem MC was the dude from Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou.
Yea I agree, the plot was really dumb. I didn't buy any of the schpiel about him wanting to 'save' his childhood friend who is trying to kill him. Whatever though, I enjoyed the girls as well.
What do you think about Mao Testament?
I was so hyped after episode 1. Was the best directed harem episode I've seen in a long time.
Feels like its going down the shitter more and more each episode though. The tragic hero/heroine trope is way too damn overdone.
Evangelion is a harem
Not pictured: the Christmas cake who wants to /ss/
I'm kinda enjoying Mao Testament. I thought the latest episode was boring though.
I have zero expectations of shows like this doing anything original.
Again what gets me is the CENSORSHIP.
There is just no point to it.
At least they said that the BluRays would be uncensored.
I mean this show knows it is nothing more than tits, ass, and lewd situations.
I've seen hentai that are more subtle than this show.
The girls are stradling MC and grinding on him.
Whatever stupid binding spell that is that makes the rias clone oragasm.
But "oh no, can't show nipples. that might be two risque"
Makes no sense to me.
What these two said.
Season 3 when
Yea, fucking japs. I'm no /pol/ fag, but I wonder why they haven't re-written their constitution yet. Didn't the US basically draft the constitution (and the censorship laws) that they still use to this day?
Anyways I was reading this thread a while ago where an anon was talking about the varying levels of censorship on doujinshi. Sometimes its just a translucent black strip, sometimes its multiple black or white strips. He was saying that you basically have to bribe the committee that handles that, but lately feminists have been lobbying that the doujinshi are degading to women, and as a result the censorship is getting worse.
I dunno how much of it is bullshit but just some food for though.
Glorious Nippon's men have been reduced to a race of virgin shut-ins.
I can easily see feminazism starting to gain a stranglehold there.
>I dunno how much of it is bullshit but just some food for though.
All of it is bullshit. The "family values" conservatives still have the most influence over censorship. Them and the tourism industry, that wants to bring in more "normal" Westerners and less weaboos for things like the upcoming Olympics.
Not just my favorite harem, it's my favorite anime as well.
OreImo is objectively the best harem and if you disagree you are wrong.
Because not talking about a genre just to not give newfags any ideas is retarded.
I bet you are the same faggot posting in the favorite anime of the year/season threads about how they should be deleted because rec threads, even when there is some perfectly fine discussion in it.
Imagine, /a/, a harem, composed entirely of twins. It's like having two harems at once, but better. Not to mention twincest is an added bonus.
Just another reason why Futakoi Alternative should be /a/'s favorite anime.
Probably Oreshura, I just like the way Silver handled herself against every one.
why are true harem endings so rare in the harem genre?
Korean Zombie Desk Car, love the characters and comedy
>are there any anime with actual harem endings?
Tenchi but that's old as fuck.
>I wonder how Highschool DxD is going to handle their ending.
The ending of DxD will never get animated regardless. IIRC S3 will finish somewhere around vol 4 or 5 and there are 18 right now.
I love the girls of IS, but I fucking hate Ichika
>The ending of DxD will never get animated
Life is meaningless
>This many posts
You disappoint me, Anons.
High School DxD... the Light Novels.
>Great girls that are more than walking cliches
>No KYAAAA ACCIDENTAL PERVERT I'LL KILL YOU
above average, a harem seeker, has a spine and actually gets best girl first.
>Battles are fun
>Only flaw is cockblocking editor
Putting aside the nostalgia goggles and the nearly flawless first episode, it ranges from average outright terrible. Hasn't kept me from watching it at least twice a year for a decade.
I mostly agree. While it's got serious flaws:
>Some major characters get sidelined for a while
>Issei's still kinda dense and not proactive enough
>FUCKING EDITOR NEEDS TO BE FIRED OR JUST LET ISHINBUMI GO FULL OUT
but the whole is just greater than sum of its parts. Issei's funny, the male supporting cast is equally great and the kid characters(I want to hug an Ophis) are daughteru/son-tier too.
To be fair it wasn't an harem till the author got forced to add it on the series to increase sales, nevertheless, is still one of my favorite series ever, shit is so entertaining, I can watch it over and over again and never get tired of it, so yeah, best harem series by far.
No fuck you faggot. More harems need to have the girls find other people aside from the MC. Nothing is worse than a girl going "Is it okay for me to keep loving you?" and the MC being an asshole and saying yes. Especially if he's already in love with another girl. Glasses bitch in Ai Kora had a perfectly good dude to go out with but she would rather sit on the sidelines and be miserable since the tsundere chick won halfway through the manga.
The's the glasses girl, the chuuni, the sister's best friend, and the sister. After that there's only like two girls who have absolutely no interest in degenerate-kun. The best friend and the sister's best friend never actually ever expressed interest enough though, so maybe you can count those out.
I don't know what the girls are required for something to be considered a harem though. Not that I care, this show was shit.
>I don't know what the girls
I think as long as it's more than two
if it's just two it's considered a love triangle, at least according to the spedlords who freak out when their favorite anime is called a harem.
And also pic related had delicious girls, the rest aren't memorable in the slightest except for a few recent shows that weren't posted yet.
Harem would mean that there are plenty of girls lusting for his dick all the series, this not happen in Oreimo, the only relationship is between Kyouske and Kirino(and Manami, though Kyouske just didn't give a fuck), it only have 1 volumen, the last one, where the girls realize the feelings they have for Kyouske, and yes, even Kuroneko, the first time she start "dating with senpai" she didn't feel shit for him, it was just part of her plan to get her desired world, you just need to paid a little attention, her first ideal world was just Kyouske and Kirino on it, later on it change of image since Kuroneko start building new feelings for all the time she spend with him.
which is kind of weird because for some of the shows that don't count as harems they use the same kind of tropes that made harems aweful in the first place, so its like why are they offended?
I only this shit for Nana, sometimes for Mikan and Kotegawa and
How the hell is Oreimo not a harem? Throughout the series the girls that want to fuck Kyousuke are:
The only major female character not wanting to fuck MC is Saori.
Anyway, I really like
It's so comfy and funny. And Shaft magic.
Here's a reason why it's not a harem. In every harem all the girls are after the MC's dick throughout the entire series. All the other girls either know or acknowledge each other's affection for the MC. Once the MC decides to go out with one of the girls in a relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend, it ceases to be a harem. In Oreimo all the girls aren't acknowledging each other's affection for Kyousuke but instead wait for a chance for when he's not in a relationship or with some girl. That's not harem-like at all. If it was really a harem, all the girls with still go after the MC regardless of who he chooses to be his special one.
Anyways, you're both retarded
>oreimo is not a harem
>5/6 major female characters wants his dick
Remember in season 2 when they have a party in a garden or some shit and they're all fighting over him?
Christ, you're fucking dumb.
>oreimo is not a harem
>5/6 major female characters wants his dick
They aren't sharing him, that's the whole point here. That's not how harems work. They stop going after his dick after that short scene and only 2 or 3 girls still show affection but don't act on it.
pls stop being retarded, please.
Can you stop being retarde underage because clearly you're the one retarded here. You're like the lowest form of troll. You're not even trying at all and just spit random shit.
This thread needs more Monmusu.
Not really though, the vast majority of the pussy he got was literally handed to him, like most harem MCs, he just went for it instead of running away.
It wasn't like he spit mad game and seduced the bitches, they were just like "hey wanna fuck?"
Are the word retarded is your buzzword,kid?
can you be more rude?
Are by made up the definition you're making your statement truer. By commonly used definition is clearly harem. Choosing a girl not making love hina losing its tag.
>Hachibi's wish was everyone with his favorite parts would find happiness
Did you miss the point of that chapter with the girl with his prefered lips? He didn't want them all to himself he would rather share them so they could be happy.
Can you elaborate why i'm shitposting? You just keep repeating the same thing over and over(assuming you are the same person) without arguing why what I said is wrong, now that is shitposting.
Toradora it is an harem because since the beginning of the series both 3 girls want the MC, simple as that, in Oreimo this doesn't happen for almost the entire series.
I take it back, it wasn't harem at all the entire series, there was none hint that point this out till the decisive moment in the series, it was just like a bunch of friends having fun like in a comedy, the only real relationship we see through the series is Kirino and Kyouske, the rest of the cast only support this one, that the fanbase start shipping happen all the time in any series and doesn't make an harem that series.
Raildex, all the girls are top tier and the protagonists are cool enough to deserve them.
Originally yes but throughout the time they will drop the tag if the harem is not that important for the sake of more exclusive fanbase. Harem tag would still be kept mostly if the harem theme still strong even when almost reaching the ending.
