Why don't any of the writers take a moment to ask "what makes this boy attractive to the girl"?
>>
>>159801026
Because anime isn't realistic and is made to appeal to losers. Why do you think every male MC ever is a plain boring beta?
>>
>>159801026
She literally said he is funny

You want every anime guy to be a supermodel or something?

My guess in the manga is that they had a childhood-friend connection and he's conveniently forgotten about it.
>>
>>159801188
>Convenient childhood friends

That's when you know a writer is a hack, because they rely on some nebulous past relationship to create a connection instead of building a believable relationship in front of the audeince's eyes.

It's like the mysterious "best friends" of the MC who never ever interact with the MC in a believable way except to be a punchline or to serve as jealous comedic relief.

>>159801962
I marathoned the manga 2 days ago and this isnt implied anywhere. In fact, there already is a childhood friend so it would be fairly retarded to have her be one as well.

Falling in love with someone in real life is mostly and mainly based on someone being your "type" and that has something to do with a person's looks.

Rarely do relationships start with [enter deep reason to fall in love with someone here].

Anime, manga, and light novels are inherently unrealistic because authors, mostly having no romantic experiences themselves, write love stories where people love others for reasons. This runs counter to how shit regularly starts in RL.

None of them but it's really common for those cheerleader types to go after earnest and easy to tease guys. Just taller and not as shrimpy as MC. They call them plowhorses where I come from. Nice guy that will work himself into the ground who gets bullied by his wife who latched onto him in highschool where she was at the apex of her popularity and he was a nobody.

Never underestimate women's fetishes for power play. That's why they have princess fantasies, not just the money and adulation but to be able to tell people to fight and die for their pleasure.

She thought he was fun to be with and tease because she liked his reactions/thought they were cute, but remember she initially thought he seriously liked her when he first confessed.

The irony is strong in this post.

It goes:

- Mutual attraction (which is entirely arbitrary because of the huge individual variation in what's thought of as attractive)
- Friendship
- (optional) getting completely hammered
- Sex
- Relationship

Any one of these stages is an opportunity for failure, and without #1, mutual attraction, there's really not a lot going to happen.

Okusama ha Seitokaichou nailed it WRT realistic depiction of human relationships, which is why it bombed. No-one wants realistic characters, and aaying that girls enjoy sex per se, and aren't saving themselves to fuck the viewer triggered the otaku the fuck out.

HA HA HA

You are a funny guy, OSK got two seasons and season 1 sold well for an 8 minute episode series. It was season 2 that sold lower because it focused too much on the dumb girl with the big tits.

It is nowhere near a good representative of human relationships and is more wish fulfillment than this gyaru series. It's full of this crap >>159801962, and both female leads Ui and Rin are literal wish fulfillment masturbation material. One girl fell in love because childhood friend, and is loyal when he cheats on her. The other fell in love with him because he sexually harassed her (groped her, saw her naked, and felt her up).

Re-reading this post it sounds like I'm mocking you, but I'm not. It's just that you can't really expect quality in these kind of series where the MC serves as the self-insert character so he can pretend they have an harem of waifus willing to fight to the death over his dick which probably has something special unlike his dweeb self.

>sexually harassed her
Pretty sure it was consensual flirting, anon.

Way to prove my point: no-one wants to see "kinda like someone" --> "heavy petting" --> "sex" --> "maybe ask name" because it's too realistic and doesn't provide a narrative with clearly-defined relationship events and an explanation for why everything happens.

This is one of the dumbest things I see in anime fandom: people complaining about how when girls fall for guys (especially in harem stories), it has to be for some really complex reason.
Girls fall in love with guys the same way guys fall in love with girls. You don't need a complex reason to fall for some silent glasses wearing and boring woman, the same way women can do the same for a similar man.
Most initial attraction isn't deeply thought shit.

Okay, dumb question so feel free to ignore me, but is there any non shojo series (for obvious reasons), more specifically harem, where is it shown or mentioned that the girl feels physical attraction to the MC? When they show the guys feeling, it's always mentioned how cute/elegant/beautiful the girl is, but when they focus on the girl, the reason she likes him is always a nebulous "he's so nice!" It's there any kind of series which do that? The girl lusting after the boy's face/ body/ height or whatever? The only example I recall would be Sakura.

It's really sad but I genuinely can't think of a single one. There are plenty of series where the MC is canonically very attractive but the female characters never care about or show any interest in that.

You don't have to have someone say it out loud, it can be shown through their backstory and the plot. For example, a weak character might like a mentally strong character because it makes them feel safer. Or a dominant woman might like a man who is more submissive. Through their actions you can make it clear why a character likes another character even without anyone saying it.

The Tenchi Muyo franchise basically made sure the protagonist is the bachelor of the century. There are three major male protagonists in the multiverse and each are massively over-qualified. None of the three are "handsome" as such, but you are not going to get a harem on looks alone anyway.
>>
>>159806694
The fact that he is a direct descendant of the most powerful royal family in the galaxy alone makes Tenchi completely overqualified for anything. Add powers that rival goddesses, and a harem of super beauties who can conquer the universe and you can see why he is seen as a huge threat to literally everything.
>>
But she did say that he was a bit attractive in the anime, and in the manga it's implied he's not bad besides being wishy washy.

When I fell in love I just liked the girl, it's not like she said or did anything special. In fact, I didn't find her that attractive at first (from a pic a friend showed me) until I met her.

And what did I say that implied it was sex friends? Sex friend is someone who you fuck, but keep as a friend, so there's no longing, no desire for more emotional stuff... and if that's there, the romantic aspect of a relationship, why deny it being love?
God damn, these new generations are all cynical and negative about it.

It was mentioned in this thread earlier, but OSK. The main girl likes the main guy's build, his glasses, his good looks. You can feel that she has genuine attraction to the MC.

Of course that genuine connection is less believable when she stays loyal to him when he cheats on her with the big breasted discipline committee girl.

Because he is kind.

Also, he is handsome as fuck. No, seriously, think on it, if you look at the average male Mc, and pay attention to anime beauty standards (face shape, eyes size/shape, etc) is obvious that he, like pretty much every MC, is pretty handsome.

You just have to compare them with the rest of male characters to realize this simple truth. Harem main characters are handsome, bland as fuck, yes, but still handsome.

>Wants to fuck
>Ignores the loli titty monster because "lol she like an imouto to me"
I don't give two fucks if you were born in the same room and put in the same crib, the bitch wants the dick, so give it to her. I can't take these faggot MCs, they always have a stupid reason for not fucking the perfectly fine chick that lives right next to them. At least consider it. Honestly, it would take a special man to look at that fucking girl and go, "Our relationship as not brother and not sister, is strong enough that I don't want to plow her brains out despite me being a desperate virgin"
>>
>>159807254
>God damn, these new generations are all cynical and negative about it.
It's because "true" (e.g. loyal, committed, willing to sacrifice) love is almost impossible to find IRL nowadays, and when it's seen in anime/manga, the audience starts questioning its "realism" instead of rolling with it.

It doesn't help that a lot of romance works eventually turn it up with cheating, used goods, unbearable teenage angst, etc.

You must have not had a hot childhood friend.

If you sister-zoned a girl you knew since you were a kid, being the prettiest and hottest girl will never get past the fact that you see her as a sister and nothing more.
>>
>>159817400

Brother/sister relationships are weird. My sister very likely caused me to be curious about sex early, and she was an easy object to think about that kind of stuff with when I was young and didn't have the internet. The thought of actually doing anything with her, in a real life, not fantasy kind of way, however, is disgusting to me. The fantasy has this nice taboo aura, but bringing it into the real world just shatters it completely.

I've heard this same sentiment from most siblings I know, and if it isn't this kind of weird almost thought, then its immediately disgusting to them, without any of the first part.

I know that incest does happen in real life, but its a lot rarer than japan likes to make it seem.
>>
>>159817400
If it's a friend he feels nothing for (and it seemed like the case to me), then it seems perfectly reasonable that he doesn't want to fuck her despite how desperate he is.

The manga had a better (albeit more plot contrived) reason for not choosing her right away--she simply didn't show up until later on in the series. In this light, I consider the anime to be superior because his feelings are made clear right from the start.
>>
>>159803262
Ore Monogatari spoiled all other romance anime for me. Both the MCs are at their core good people who love each other, and are both attracted to each other sexually and romantically. Yamato has a type, Takeo has a type, and both these glorious people meet by chance and have a nice, long, happy relationship with eachother.

Also the physical comedy is great, which isn't something you can say in alot of anime.
>>
>>159803401

While OSK is not realistic at all, what I do like is that the motivation for the girls liking Izumi is not because "he is nice."

Ui likes him out of obligation since she was there when his mom died, after years of separation, her obligation transformed to a sense of longing and love. From there, she liked his good looks, nerdy personality, and how he is earnest with his sexuality.

Rin likes him because he is the first guy who doesn't put her on a pedestal and treat her like a pair of walking tits. He is in effect, her first real friend of the opposite sex. As she knew more about him, in both his perv side, and his more kind side, she slowly developed a crush on him that turned into love at some point.
>>
>>159817665
A big factor that made Ore Monogatari really engaging was the fact that the relationship started pretty much immediately. You didn't have to sit through 95% bullshit in order to for them to realize the feelings they had for each other long before the last 5%.

This is why I think this series has potential.
>>
>>159817520
>You must have not had a hot childhood friend.
I did, and I didn't think about her for years. After sitting down and thinking about it, I wondered what my problem was? I mean, she was probably one of my only female friends, cute, smart, nice bodied. I guess you are right though, I was blind to her for a while and didn't consider her seriously before.

>>159817606
>>159817661
I'd just assume that a man willing to beg some chick he barely knows to go out with him for the sole purpose of fucking her would consider the girl with the mega jugs who's clearly interested, him being a desperate retard and all. Although, when you don't feel something for someone, I guess you can't really force yourself to suddenly have feelings for them.
>>
>>159817837
It's why i drop a majority of the romance/harem anime i pick up. I like the chase, the chase is good, but there is stuff that comes after the chase i want to see.

I'd also think it would be fun to see a Legacy romance anime, like with they did with JoJo or Naruto. but that is so fucking incredibly niche it will never get made.
>>
>>159817780
Wow, I never read this but I like this Rin girl already. I feel her pain.

>>159818093
The problem is that most manga-ka never been in a relationship, so they dint know how to make the romance strong and believable.

Everyone can write a good story about trying to get the girl, few could write a good story about trying to keep her from walking away once you got her.
>>
>>159801090
read the manga anon.

It basically teaches beta faggs to stop being that and be direct about shit. Like a guide on how to go with a relationship even if they have zero experience.

Sssasuga birthrate up project.
>>
>>159818093
The only time I put up with "romance" not focusing on the development of a relationship is when there are other things going on that are more important (e.g. work, fighting/action, family).

Which is why school romance is mostly trash if the relationship doesn't start immediately. The average first world middle/high school student literally has nothing going for them outside of school.
>>
>>159818222
>Wow, I never read this but I like this Rin girl already. I feel her pain.
Thing is, it's really hard to not get really fucking pissed when you see her get MC's attention, because the series spent a lot of time making Ui out to be the main girl.

how long until translators translate chapter 37? fucks sake...

>>159801026
Look, she decided to date him. This does not mean she loves him, decided to marry him, believes he is her ideal man, or any of that nonsense. That stuff happens only after dating or knowing someone for a very long time. In Japan, even just dating, at least in high school, typically requires that sort of confession, a claim like "I love you", to begin. But that's really only a demonstration of intent rather than anything else.

We can at least begin with this: as shitty as he is, the MC at least did a proper confession. This is something that 30%+ of men in Japan are not actually doing (and they are still virgins in their 30s). Already the MC has proven he is not in the bottom 70%.

As for her reason of acceptance-- "it seems fun." Sums it up. He is not like the other men in her social circle, he is an entire wildcard and as such, he can likely be entertaining and different in ways that those other men could not. What exactly does she have to lose? She does not seem to have a reputation for chastity or some kind of huge popularity kick, she's just a regular girl doing regular girl things. Even having a boyfriend is probably a status symbol to her, and from everything we know he is supposed to be pretty easy on the eyes. That can't hurt.

You do not date people because you love them. You date people because there is attraction and you want to see if there is more. Her attraction is "being entertained". It's totally rational and works.

Honestly, the fact that he tried at all, especially right at the start, already makes this series worth watching, regardless of the girl's response. I'm fucking tired of people burying their feelings because of a fear of rejection or sheer embarrassment among peers.
>>
>>159818356
I don't see how that's a problem, many stories shift narratives/characters over time. If anything, that is a good thing since it adds an air of unpredictability and uncertainty.

Huh? I though you got into a relationship first then had sex.
>>
>>159819125
Because as a viewer, it's really hard to switch sides once you've chosen one. It takes something drastic for that to happen.

The MC doesn't even have to make an explicit commitment; if the chemistry is there, then the first girl is generally the one people choose.

He's one of the worst MCs. Almost as bad as Seiren's MC
>>
>>159820343
chicken and egg here, if every MC wasn't just MC-kun, then we'd probably talk about the MCs more. Like Haruhi in Ouran. Giving your MC a personality is a gamble though, unfortunately
>>
>>159820801
It's not so much a personal or as much as making them less bland. While not a harem lead (I think), Kyon from Haruhi was popular on here because he was likable, sardonic, sarcastic, and was actually a character as opposed to a cardboard cutout the audience is supposed to self insert in.

But if an author is good enough to write an interesting MC, would such an author even write a harem?

The few examples of works I can think of end up not being harems despite looking like one.

Because the only realistic answer is a mixture of money, power, and confidence absent in their target demographic.
>>
>>159821165
Probably not, a skilled writer would also probably write unique and different settings that would not be conducive for harem antics.

Yosuga no Sora, but only two sub-characters (maid Motoka and class officer Kozue).

>>159821385
What I meant was, if a writer is skilled enough to make an interesting MC, would they bother putting such an MC in a harem?
>>
>>159821607
Even if they don't mention it, Haruka is a bishounen through and through. He looks like a short haired and taller version of his sister, who is remarked in universe to be extraordinarily beautiful.
>>
>>159821607
Does it even count if it's omnibus? From what I've seen, a girl isn't even attracted to the MC (and vice versa) if the show isn't in their respective arc.

MC is... actually not a beta. He gets with her and claims her as his girlfriend/fiancee. I believe they also bone, but I could be misremembering.

She is a tsundere at first but she's a classic tsundere. Tsun at the start but by like episode 6 or so she is full dere.

The lewd spell is just that she is super fucking thirsty and wants the D badly.

No, not a dream.

Rakudai is not a good show by any means, but Stella gets her man early and tries to be a good girl for him.

read the manga all the way through to chapter 37. Their love actually makes some pretty good sense. the mutual attraction and fumbling of both the characters. perfect. its just perfect. Its a love story full of Gyarus, and its all that i wanted.

I am now, however, very very very concerned with how fast they are introducing characters.

>>159829604
if you live in the west, go outside. gyarus are everywhere, you are just used to looking at them.
>>
>>159829604
in the west, gyarus are the girls everyone thinks are dirty who are always skipping class and smoking in front of the school
>>
>>159829604
As I understand it Gyaru is a (mostly) dead fashion subculture in real life.
>>
>>159830043
Mostly because it was horribly mismanaged by the brands who sell western fashion in Japan, and the general dislike of westernization in japan in general. As well as the declining birthrate japan is experiencing, Older gyarus are just leaving the subculture and not staying to pass it onto the younger generations, like Lolita fashion is.

There has been alot of Gyraru in media though, so maybe there is something to revitalize.

/a/ doesn't. A minority of complainers (who might as well be female) does.

Well, she said he isn't bad looking and find his squirming to be funny/entertaining. Maybe "attractive" isn't the right word, but more like "interested".

Some people are natural cucks. They derive pleasure from seeing men who are 'better' than them please the women they don't get.
Others, even though they might be losers, still have that much pride that they only enjoy watching the kind of fantasy where a guy resembles them (or perhaps who is even worse) gets the girl.

Clearly that worked out.
>>
>>159807818
You get that they're friends that are heavy-petting, right?

There's no "betrayal" because no-one's expectations were violated.

Tangentially, all this forced drama came about because the author was happy enough depicting the bit you like, but the audience wasn't going for it because they felt threatened by realistic depiction of human relationships, and the publisher forced him to either stop writing it or to throw in harem shenanigans.

Which didn't help: it still sold like shit, I imagine because several teenagers having casual sex activities outside the context of a romcom courtship was even more triggering than just two of them.
