The author has shit taste only for his self-fulfiling waifu that is Stella. Nene is so much better and is stuck in a shitty series. Shizuku is also pretty decent and better.

People complain about this shit constantly, but I feel like most of these are pretty common cliches in most mediums and cultures. I mean, forget otaku escapism or whatever you try to blame it on, these are the sort of things plenty of middle-aged non-failures would like to see in their teenaged kids' stories. Can't people just learn not to watch this genre if they don't like it and stop bitching like this is some special strain of shitty writing that only exists in anime?

That's why people complain about it constantly.
>>
>>134940449
Except everyone who complains acts like they've never seen it before and they're astounded that anyone would make or watch this or that it could be a trend, and then they attribute it all to some need to self-insert or have non-threatening elements or something that supposedly otaku have because of how pathetic they are, when really this isn't new, it isn't unique, and it has very little to do with otaku.

This kind of series would be so much better if the MC had at least a few bro characters to interact with. See Mahouka.

Was it a miracle, that they aired at the same time?
>>
>>134941275
But that's literally not true. There are forty-ish shows right now, and I'm certain that no more than five are high school battle harem LN adaptations.

When you have 40 shows airing, you don't NEED 5 to be the same shit.
>>
>>134940868
>>134940976
both if these would are correct. some guy's saying it's escapism so it's ok but escapism needs an element of reality to be believable, or else it doesn't work. you don't feel attached to whats going on since it's impossible to suspend your disbelief. the author was probably raised by a single mom and only had girl friends growing up so he can't understand brotherhood or fellowship

Both rakudai and antimagic have best characters that are not females which is kuraudo and kurogane hayato.

I WANT Battle Harem ecchi to be good /a/ but they're all pretty much mediocre each season.

Why? I just want them to be sexy but still solid. I keep picking them up each season but I drop most of them anyway.

How did you not get that? He's saying that he dared to do more things with his gf than the MC does in this anime despite the fact that they sleep together and she's hot as fuck.
>>
>>134939369
Aren't the things you listed earlier a staple for LN's? Besides other people have different tastes than you thats why they can watch it.
kuraudo is the best character in rakudai. Stella and that rabid stellafag should just jump off the bridge

It's funny how Julis and Stella are pretty much the same character yet Julis is better.
>>
>>134945035
That's because Stella hasn't done anything except provide background commentary since archer fight. Julis actually has some character interaction with others.
>>
>>134944151
> Why?

Because you can shit these light novels out like filling a form where you just pick a few random check boxes out of the top-selling tropes and the hordes will keep buying them because they are so desperate to escape their lives of drudgery as insignificant salarymen that they require a constant influx of concentrated self-insertion fantasy fluff to not kill themselves. Things like "relatable characters with personality" or "recognizable themes" don't factor into this equation at all.
>>
>>134945606
> Things like "relatable characters with personality" or "recognizable themes" don't factor into this equation at all
These don't factor into my equation either. It just has to be entertaining, which about a third of these scrape by on.
>>
>>134945673
More power to you then I suppose.

Personally I can't find it in myself to bother with a show if none of the characters make me feel like I'd want to know more about them on a personal level, unless it has some other exceptional aspect.

Oh, and regardless of your reasons, if you are despairing at how shit all these high school battle harems are, you would probably kill yourself if you ever went to one of the bigger manga and book stores in Akihabara. I literally got vertigo when looking at the light novel section with their endless corridors of carbon-copy high school battle harems.

They could animate five of those every season and the current stock probably wouldn't run out until 2030 or something.
>>
>>134945035
Julis has some depth and development, plus she has ambitions that doesn't require the MC as a clutch. Stella kind doesn't have those.
>>
>>134939369
Oh shit were having one of these threads
Antimagic = Radukai > Asterisk
>>
>>134946622
Just like the other thread, it's more like Antimagic > Asterisk > Rakudai. Rakudai only has a decent MC and the occasional well animated battles, but other than that it loses to the other two in many categories.
>>
>>134947063
I'd agree with you but Asterisk has been dropping the ball hard. Unless it picks up during its second cour, Rakudai is better than it by sheer virtue of not putting me to sleep.
>>
>>134947063
well if you're asking me i have to say antimagic>rakudai=asterisk. Though it is funny that i like almost everything for antimagic(OP,ED,VA'S) aside from how they handled the adaptation and the animation.
>>
>>134944151
Don't worry lad KyoAni will save battle harems next season
>>
>>134946475
Julis suffers from being a series of cliches that aren't as well done as Rakudai
>>
havent watched asterisk but julis looks like a massive bitch/annoyng tsundere from her face/how she stands
>>
>>134947214
>aside from how they handled the adaptation and the animation

Amazing how you can just gloss over the two most crucial parts of the anime show.
>>
>>134944586
>Aren't the things you listed earlier a staple for LN's?
not every ln is generic haremshit you fucking cuck
>>
>>134944151
battle haremshit combines the two easiest genres to be written

You cannot expect quality in a genre that charlie will buy to fill his head fantasies irregardless of how bad it is
>>
>>134944219
>just because you have standards doesn't mean others do
k
It's not even high standards either, it's like "don't be a exact copy of another shitty harem LN".

You're starting to understand now. With time, you'll be able to recognize these kinds of series just from trailers, tags, and the synopsis.

She would be Stella's sensei.

>>134949742

Except harem is one of the hardest genres to write if done properly.

I don't feel like MC is a empty shell in this. He some relatively distinct traits. They're just not very exciting.
