What does /a/ think of harems?
>>
>>113160896
They are great because I usually self insert
>>
Some are fun, some are shit.
>>
>>113160896
it's shit
>>
>>113160896
I think that you're pic is shit.
>>
I love harem anime
>>
I love them because they are usually fun and light-hearted.

Though I'm sick of ones that force themselves to have shitty and subpar action.

An anime where the main focus is a Harem at shit 99% of the time.
>>
I love them but I'm also willing to admit I have shit taste.
>>
Pinnacle of shit taste.
>>
I like the awkward situations but most of them are shit because they are forced too much.

One of two parts from the shit taste fusion.

i just imagine the fan base self-inserting and then the whole setting getting covered in their semen
>>
>>113160896
they're shit
>>
They're only good when there's some crazy shit involved that leaves the harem in the background.
>>
I really can't stand male characters in anime so I'm torn over harems. If they don't focus on how much everyone wants some beta MCs cock then I can stomach or even enjoy them.
>>
FACT: there are no such thing as a "bad genre" all genres were made for a specific purpose, have a assortment of good and bad titles to them, and once put into it's potential all genres balance out by having strengths another genre does not have to the point one judges an anime specifically with that potential in mind (you judge a romance by how romantic it is, etc.).

That being said, harem is the worst genre.
>>
>>113160896
Every harem anime would be better if it was not a harem anime.

That being said, there are still some good harem animes.

I like shit anime but I hate that all they're all harems, it's not my fantasy, it's just an unpleasant situation

also it means there will never be any real romance and the main character is forced into idiot mode to keep the harem running

I tend to avoid any with harem tag nowadays which is frustrating because I see so many that look interesting but have this tag :/
>>
>>113161610

DxD and Monogatari would definitely not be as good as they were if you took at the harem. Some anime's definitely would though
>>
>>113160896
Sometimes I miss motivationals. Then I remember how most of them are shit.
>>
Great if the MC isn't beta as fuck.
>>
>>113160896
It's okay, as long as it doesn't take itself seriously. I'm looking at you rail wars. I can't fucking like any of the main girsl. Of course child hood friend will never win, since she seems like the best of them.
>>
>>113161847
DxD is already shit. It's no better than any other generic harem.

What's a good harem that ISN'T Kajishima?

Reverse Harems also acceptable.
>>
It's funny that for a genre focused on girls, the most important thing in making anime watchable is good male MC.
>>
>>113160896
I dont like harem, they cause rage-inducing, and as well as no plot. Nisekoi is an example of shitty harem.
>>
>>113163373
this comment made me google it, synopsis looks interesting, no harem tag

I think I'll watch it
>>
>>113160896
I generally like them.

There's a vocal minority on /a/ who gets really upset about them. I suspect that they're normalfags and landwhales who are mad that they don't pander to their interests.
>>
>>113163373
Nisekoi was entertaining though. Kinda generic but solid. And the girls were cute.

It is a harem.

I can stand some harems depending on how they play out. I usually won't go over 3 girls.

What I always avoid is harems where the MC just wants one girl and all the others are thrown in there with no good reason besides bothering MC and his crush.
>>
>>113162274
The color wars MC was as beta and retarded as all the other harem MCs. The ONLY difference was that he was given super powers. In terms of personality he was beta as fuck.
>>
>>113164038
If you think harem anime were only popular among a vocal minority then you must not spend a lot of time here. Wait, given that you believe harem anime were eo ipso bad you're probably a normalfag anyway, so it is pretty much a given. What are you even doing in here?
>>
Harems are a plot element, not a genre. It can be a sci-fi, a romance, or fantasy.
>>
>>113164157
>What I always avoid is harems where the MC just wants one girl and all the others are thrown in there with no good reason besides bothering MC and his crush.
I dislike those too. It gets even worse if they try to do serious romance/drama and treat the other girls like shit.

If they want to do that sort of thing they shouldn't make it a fucking harem show but go omnibus.

Harem is best if it's light-hearted and does comedic slice of life antics with the girls.
>>
>>113164021
>Kinda generic but solid
Every chapter just ends with a girl blushing because Raku's holding her hand for some reason or he said something nice.

We have to devote 1 or 2 chapters to every girl before something relevant to the plot actually occurs.
>>

I don't read Nisekoi, I was talking about the anime.
>>
>>113160896
Cancer of anime and manga.
>>
There is no "harem" in animu, just a dense motherfucker MC and some girls loving him.
A true harem would be the MC fucking those girls and taking them as his wifes.

I've only read one Light Novel so far as the harem-tag really fits.
>>
>>113164779
This.

Harem shit is what keeps anime and manga from becoming a respectable medium. At least video games are getting better, noticing that the can't go on with their objectification of womyn. It's about time the Japanese start to realise that womyn aren't a commodity but people too. This wish fulfilment has to come to an end. The betamax MCs in harem anime would never get gfs irl and the sooner the people here realise that the faster they can change their lives to the better. Maybe then they'd treat womyn with the respect they deserve and actually get somewhere in life. Also, then I wouldn't have to be ashamed any more that I like anime and people wouldn't look strange at me any more when I tell them that I like it. There's so much good stuff out there (Cowboy Bebop, Kill la Kill, Shingeki no Kyoujin, ...) yet it's not being given the recognition it deserves because all this harem shit is making critics ignore the medium.
>>
Its fine in VNs because each girl has a route, but in anime usually they end with the MC just being a massive faggot.

Tenchi doesn't fuck any of them on screen. He spends most of the time being a useless beta piece of shit like all the other harem MCs.

Well of course not, it's not a hentai. If you want to see Tenchi fucking anyone, you have to read Kajishima Onsen.

There's a lot of shit but some are really good. A couple seasons ago I think the majority of the shows I was watching were harems and that's not a genre I seek out most of the time since I'm not a fan of the standard cliches of the genre.
>>
>>113160896

Killing anime while saving it at the same time.
>>
>>113165449
It's less about betting and winning though. This is a normalfag perspective. Normalfags don't understand that people can become attached to fictional characters.

It's not about randomly picking a girl and wanting her to "win", but it's about picking the girl you like best and wanting to see her happy and in a romantic situation with the person she likes so you could imagine what it would be like if you were in the MCs shoes.

need help

im looking for a manga about a guy with a poor disposition (is somewhat mean) that lives on his own and may or may not be NEET but then suddenly all these female deities keep moving in with him, one of whom is artemis

the only other thing i remember about this manga is that he makes a list about why he should be alone forever and it lists points like 'killing self would be troublesome to others" and i think it ends with something like accepting being alone forever or something

what manga am i thinking of?
please respond
>>
>>113166827
Lurk moar, faggot.

Sounds like TWGOK.
>>
>>113166827
Its the world god only knows most likely. I enjoyed the anime a lot and really loved it.

Softcore porn for nerds, objectively worse than shoujoshit, fucking Twilight has better writing than the average haremshit

>softcore porn for nerds
Sound like you're talking about ecchi faggot
>>
>>113160896
Some are good, the great majority is just plain shit. If your lucky you have 1 decent/good one a season, but most of the time it's just unredeemable shit.

Just look at this season, we got one decent one (the newest iteration of the Monogatari series) an the rest is just shit.
>>
>>113167056
>>113166914

nope wasnt that one, the guy wasnt a video gamer

just some sorta mean guy he had two sisters that were mean to him too... thats all i remember
>>
>>113167306
Well while ecchi is even lower than harems I would believe he was indeed talking about harems.

Good when the harem is meaningful and there is conflict between the various members.

Bad when one character is so obviously in the lead that none of the other girls can win, or when the MC has one girl that he's chosen from the beginning and nobody else has a chance despite being "in" the "harem." Pic-related.

And of course, when best girl wins it's an amazing harem; when the worst girl wins it's shit.
>>
>>113167404
Give us something, a physical description, a mishap, something. When did you see it and where?
>>
>>113167614
uh... he has black hair (HA)

i only saw it in manga form and i cant remember the group who did the scanslations

aw well maybe if i search hard enough ill be able to find it within my files because i looked through all my unsorted junk and couldnt find it
>>
>>113167791
Any more info to give on it?
>>
>>113167522
Sort of this, I think. I'm pretty impartial towards harem(well, most of them I hated, but the genre is pretty okay.). How they play the character intereactions, how they become part of a harem, how do they solve the conflict of the harem itself and overall point of the harem itself will determine whether it is enjoyable or not. Don't know about objectively good, but if it's enjoyable, I don't even care.

Sort of the reason like Umi no Misaki as a harem.
>>
>>113168011
nothing else

that list i spoke of was posted about on here and other forums because of how ironically well thought out it was for the character to come up with

it's like he put alot of thought into why he should be alone forever like "i'm useless so i shouldnt hinder others" or something
>>
>>113165647
That's a horrible rule.
>>
If the legend of the legendary heroes counts as a harem then that kind.
>>
Harems are really just the author having no idea how to write proper romance stories.
>>
>>113160896
It's okay as long as the MC isn't an infuriating beta loser or a child
>>
>>113168297
i think it's like a show mainly for women because the idea that 'most mans in japan are unmarryable (NEETs, etc)' is prevalent and the one desirable male in the story is like the holy grail sought after by the many independant wimings who dont need to lower their standards to get the mang dey wunt
