People naturally self insert when watching anime, this takes advantage of that and puts 10 bitches on your dick. This is also why yuri will never be mainstream, or the second it does they'll get bombarded for male characters. It happened already in girl only games/anime already.
>>
>>121653653
Honestly, it's kind of a love-hate scenario.

They're garbage and the premise itself naturally smothers interesting character and cast dynamics in the crib.

On the other hand, it being basically the bread and butter of late night anime means I can easily identify what'll be shit from an upcoming seasonal chart at a glance. The "red touches yellow" of Chinese cartoons, if you will.
>>
>>121653653
Self-fulfilling prophecy. a/tards and NEETs hate harems but /a/tards and NEETs want waifus, harems maximize potential waifus, /a/tards and NEETs support harems. Waifus are cancer; harems are the damage the cancer does to the body.
>>
We do nothing.

It's been a few years now since I had that huge stick surgically removed out my ass and ever since then I've loved reveling in my shit taste. Knowing that there will always be haremshit to air every season warms my heart like no other. Knowing that haremshit will still be there until Japan and its industry finally kicks the bucket makes me realize just how marvelous life is.

>>121653653
We don't. Who gives a fuck What's the point of actively expressing distaste for a genre? I don't even particularly like it above other, but come on. It's like you want to be as bad as faggots who use

>>121657295
You realize that every anime of a shit genre that is being made kills a potential good anime that could have been?

Enjoy a world where eventually, a decent show comes out every two years or so, only for the responsible anime studio to go bankrupt cause no one buys it.

I wouldn't worry too much about it, yuri never sells but it's always around. Same with all genres, as long as it's being made, it doesn't matter if no one buys it.

Tenchi Muyo was the only harem anime that could be saved.

Was.

>>121657559
The point is, if the industry keeps producing anime that you're not interested in watching, you'll eventually have to find a new hobby.
>>
>>121657707
>I am not interested in harems, therefore nobody is interested in harems

also you aren't buying shit either way, how are you supposed to sabotage anything?
>>
>>121654451
true, its like the soap operas that older women see on tv, they know that all of them are almost the same, and the story is always so predictible, but they love them just for the entertaining, emotional bullshit that it's caracteristic of them, same thing for slice of life romantic comedies.
>>
>>121657707
But anon, that's the thing. If it's anime, I'm interested in watching it.
>>
>>121653653

Eventually (if it already hadn't); harem animu will split up into to directions.

* It'll be like beer, or whatever drug the Wapanese are taking now, to escape from reality until they end up killing themselves.

* It'll try to differentiate itself from the pounds of SHIT it produces; just to prove to the outside world that it's not like beer...

It's obviously too late, though. Nobody cares about us non-sheep; all they care about is money.

Harems really aren't bad. What is bad are those terrible copy-paste fantasy harems, like the ones airing these seasons.

There are plenty of entertaining harems, like Saekano or Haganai. As long as the humour is good, the harem premise shouldn't matter. The only issue is when shows drop trying to have good comedy and instead focus on some shallow as fuck fantasy world that we have all seen before.
>>

>>
>>121658002
This. There is no such thing as a universally bad genre. Just because there are a good many harems that are generic escapism doesn't mean that the genre as a whole is worth judging as shit and avoiding altogether.
>>
>>121657988
>us non-sheep
In a few months you'll be telling us we're all self insert shitters ruining anime and how pure girl only yuri anime is the pinnacle of Japan culture and isn't selling because of subhuman scum like us that should be purged.

Why would anyone do that if it's shit don't watch it.

It's not so much lowering your standards as it is getting rid of the meaningless pretension that was keeping you from watching otherwise enjoyable shows.

I haven't. I've just gotten rid of the pretense of standards. I turned into an optimistic fucker who's looking at the good.

You could, you know, not watch them?
They have allways existed and will allways exist since they are an easy cash in. They don't expect them to sell much just enough to get profit that's why they are usually filled with QUALITY and BUY THE BD light beams (key word usually). You could easily ignore them.

Well, I'm with you on all of those except:

If you're talking about how the love polygon formula works, then of course it does matter. Otherwise it would felt like another those crappy fantasy harem clones you've mentioned.

Harem should really be comedy only, any harem which takes itself seriously is just sad to look at

Homura is 100% yuri for Madoka, but it's not the main focus of the series unlike Sakura Trick or Lesbears. Plus modern mahou shoujo is rife with yuri subtext, look at Nanoha or Symphogear or Yuki Yuna.

In my argument, at least Haganai and Saekano did try to improve the formula, and the latter giving more thought, purpose and goal. So it felt a bit more authentic than "fantasy school battle harem #2859" whereas any additional members are basically just additional female comrade #11608 to stir mishaps #35240 and pointless fanservice #203766. Not to mention that the ride could go on forever without any concrete goal or objective in sight.

I don't think that's the implication. It's just that girl only shows tend to be pure comedy or comfort instead of some comedy/comfy but with a bunch of extra shittyness thrown in for no reason.
>>

>Haremfag saying anything about insecurity issues.
You just compared week old milk to fine wine and don't even realize it.

The worst genre is still them all-female cast loli shows. Most have shit humor and more generic shit happening then any typical harem
>>
Harems are like horse races. You bet on a horse, and, depending on archetype, plot, and appearance order, they have a certain chance of winning.

So long as people enjoy gambling, they will enjoy harems. Battleharems seem to be more common than banal SoL harems too, thank god.

And remember kids, it's not about getting rid of males, it's about getting rid of the gender politics. Characters cannot shine while carrying around a millenia's worth of bullshit arbitrary restrictions on how they may or may not relate to each other.

Have them track the most otaku people from the even
Kill them at a later time/date
Take their BD's, Figs, etc as a bonus
Anons return to homeland

New anons come in and repeat over and over

We do this until the anime economy almost collapses

>naturally smothers interesting character and cast dynamics in the crib.

This is the real problem, it's like the curse of light novels. You get an interesting set up, like "a group of social dropouts create a club for making friends despite all hating each other" or "an ordinary group of schoolkids get superpowers, but only use them for fucking around" or "an estranged brother and sister begin to mend their relationship when he agrees to help her hide her love of anime" and it lasts for all of one volume before the the entire initial premise turns into glorified window dressing in favor of the endlessly fascinating dramatic question of WHO WILL WIN THE MCB OWL. A question the answer to which can almost certainly be answered by just checking who the first volume's cover has a picture of.

Harems'll only go away once people stop liking them. Which, if you look at the forecast of tastes and preferences, is never.

Unfortunate, as i personally think a harem setting is self-sabotaging and bland. Maybe i don't understand, as taking care of and loving 3+ people simultaneously sounds tiring, annoying, and undesirable.

>>121657295
It's just annoying to see an otherwise good anime be sabotaged by lack of commitment and movement by the characters and plot
