It is a harem. Harem doesn't mean bad 100% of the time just most of the time.
Only Rikka likes the MC on chuu2 first season. I'll give you second season though but I've been told by /a/ that my >1 = harem opinion is wrong
It's not bad when KyoAni makes it.
>bikini + apron
>toast in mouth
It's an anime with a worthless piece of shit weak as fuck mediocre looking MC and a cast of beautiful maidens. MCs only reason to exist is to highlight the cute interactions a male could have with these female characters.
In other words it is the next level of otaku degeneracy - self insert waifu exhibition.
This is shaping up to be the new mainstream in otaku pandering anime and in time will become a cancer greatly overshadowing pure harem anime with it's beta displays.
>Kyoani has a dendency of turning garbage, average, or unnotable source material into high tier shows.
That has never happened.
Free! was shit.
Amaburi was shit.
Chuu2 was shit.
Tamako was shit.
They took a book like Hyouka that had 10 awards and turned it to shit.
Endless 9 was shit as well.
The meme was always that KyoAni finds a way to fail.
It also finds a way to hook in it's pleb baseliners. Aya style.
"In 2011, Kyoto Animation’s anime version of 4coma series Nichijou received high praise for it’s epic animation quality and hilarious comedy presentation. However despite the high praise it failed to sell well (as compared with other successful KyoAni animations such as “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”, “Lucky Star”, and “K-ON!”). In June of 2011 a thread was crated on 4chan’s /a/ board showing the dismal sales figures for the show. During this thread an anonymous user posted the now famous shopped picture of Dr. Ian Malcolm with the phrase “KyoAni finds a way to fail!” typed beside it".
From Know Your Meme
Since when did harem go from "three plus girls in love with and competing for MC" to "at least three girls interact with MC at any point regardless if the girls are in love with him or not"?
Phantom world is a harem, in second volume MC goes on double date with Koito (and Sunoharaw with his megane waifu) because girl drew lots and she won.
Mal-mentality, only difference it that they also rate it as 6 or 7 if they dropped it
Know your meme is created by newfags for newfags and neither party were around for the memes they talk about.
>the now famous shopped picture of Dr. Ian Malcolm with the phrase “KyoAni finds a way to fail!” typed beside it. The picture itself however only had “KyoAni Finds A Way” on it. The archive of this thread doesn’t exist.

That's real convenient. What a terrible site
Koito? Koito. Stretching. Sucking. And two new cuties.
This. There's nothing even to this damn series, it's two fucking volumes. Nothing in this makes it a harem. Then again, these threads are made for one purpose and it's working pretty well.
She's the only one, if at all, that's in the running for a relationship with the MC. But even then, that's not even talked about nor covered in any capacity because it's not important to anything.
