Is there any harem protagonist that isn't extremely awkward and with more awareness than a potted plant?
There must be a better way than having a completely unlikable mc. Just have the girls not be all over his dick, and have them be more subtle and make him genuinely torn between them.
the ones you don't like.
I think I just heard something stupid.
Not knowing superior onii-sama protag.
If there was relationship progression in a harem, the whole setup would come tumbling down so one is stuck with MCs that are either completely spineless, denser than a neutron star, pathologically incapable of committing to a girl or a combination of the above.
>no one mentioning seitokai no ichizon
Arata from Trinity Seven
Yuuji from Grisaia
>Actually gets to have one of the girls
>Fully aware of his harem and enjoys it
>Actually friends with the girls, too
>gf is okay with him spending time with the other girls as long as he only fucks her
He was okay
How is this a bad thing? Are you such a virgin that your harem is only perfect as long as you get to sleep around with every girl? He has a bunch of cute friends of adore him and still gets laid.
>mfw we will never see more greatness from Kazuma
Man, it's such a shame that both the manga and anime adaption look like shit visually because it's a genuinely entertaining harem with a great MC.
You've never heard of a relationship web?
Are you real?
Did you graduate high school?
He's kinda awkward at first, but bitches are, quite literally, falling from the sky.
Seina too, but he's more dopey than Tenchi, but not without reason.
How about a Shonen Protagonist?
I don't know if you want to call Izayoi the harem leader or Jin Russell since he technically gets the loli maids.
Read the manga. He has guys in his harem and even his imouto. Fucker has 12 backups in case he dies.
I bet Ichika isnt actually retarded but is just being nice. Think about it, if there were desperate cock hungry girls lusting after your cock and only your cock, all day, every day, im sure youd get tired of it much sooner than youd realize. Instead of telling the sluts off in a dick way, he just plays dumb so nobody has their feelings hurt.
Also, think about finally having a guy friend who finally wants you around not just for your cock; you shoot the shit with him, and all is good because you finally have a guy friend you can relate to right? But it turns out that guy friend is actually just another girl who wants your cock.
Or you can just chalk it up to being retarded.
The complaint wasn't about pretending to be retarded though, it was about lack of awareness (which, pretending or not, still applies to Ichika) and being extremely awkward (which also applies to Ichika.)
Also if it was me I would just have fucked Houki already.
Which only makes it all the more infuriating that the author is dragging it out for so long. Not only for the Houkifags, but for the people who prefer the other girls knowing they will inevitably lose too.
This is why harems are always utterly pointless. Everyone already knows which girl is going to win, but the author still refuses to just have them get together properly because they can't write plots that aren't filled with stupid misunderstandings and shit.
Takeru Shirogane actually is quite alpha for a typical harem MC
but he's not /a/ so that doesn't count
