There's a logical explaination:

This guy is Japanese.

He can't read English, probably!

...Maybe?
#198 to #37 - anon (08/03/2013) [-]
he is japanese.

if not already a pervert to some degree, the japanese male in anime is a dickless retard who never takes action.

It feels like this is from endless 8 or so. I could be confused though. It's my favorite anime ever, but I haven't watched it in a while. I'm really pissed that there's not going to be a third season.

Is that show any good and how long is it if it's over?
My friend says it sucks, though he's a cynical bastard who hates everything so I tend not to believe that.
I've only seen the first few episodes of an abridged series of it and it looks... okay.
Something about how girls are the only ones able to pilot/use robot suit things except the male protagonist who is somehow able to and goes to an academy with nothing but girls to learn how to pilot it?

If you like the typical harem theme, then go right ahead, it's right up your ally. But when I went in as a Mecha fan... no... just no... It's atrocious. There are also quite a few plot holes, and a lot of holes in the main guy's head. The guy really is dense as ****

So if you like the typical harem, you may like it. But otherwise it isn't worth your time and anger.
User avatar #40 to #36 - thisotherdude (08/03/2013) [-]
Actually even by harem standards it's bad, and harem as a genre isn't all that great either (unless we're talking Clannad but that's like comparing Grave of the Fireflies to Naruto)
#44 to #40 - ataeru (08/03/2013) [-]
I agree, I don't think the genre is all that good overall. But there are people who love harems, they're the reason why it's still around.

While I don't like it, I have no idea how they would think of it.

BTW I don't think of Clannad as a harem. It does have a lot of girls, but it has their individual timeline routes afterall.
User avatar #45 to #44 - thisotherdude (08/03/2013) [-]
According to most sources it's considered a harem, but I consider it the only reason I don't hate harems as a concept so I'll keep thinking of it as a harem so I can hold onto that tiny, wheezing little voice that in the back of my head that say's "harems can be good if done well!"

Also the reason is simple, self insert fantasies. The reason the male protagonists of these things are generally completely retarded and lacking in any interesting personalities is so the audience can daydream themselves into his role but get tons more pussy than him in said dreams since they don't consider themselves to be so dense.
#46 to #45 - ataeru (08/03/2013) [-]
Well, I guess if you put it that way, it can be. But I would only watch harems if it had that route format.

And I can understand to self insert instead of the protag. Still don't like it, as I end up hating the protag rather then trying to self insert replace him. But I understand it.
#54 to #40 - hyruleforever (08/03/2013) [-]
I totally agree with you. Harems are far too often mashed together with the ecchi genre, and they are simply one huge fanservice. But then, out of the mass of bad series rises Clannad.   
     It really changed my entire view on harems and romantic animes in general. And it is, to this day, the best thing (be it TV series, animes or movies) that I have ever seen.

IS was such a weird anime. And yes, I'm aware this is from L.I.L.Y. Cat and not IS
#38 - thisotherdude (08/03/2013) [-]
When you aren't aware that a chick wants the D from you when she sneaks into your bed completely naked all the while calling you what she would if you two were married, then you NEED to be removed from the gene pool so you can't pass on your stupid (I'm not even joking about that first part, it literally happens in the show)

Seriously though, Infinite Stratos was a really ****** show even by harem standards, and harems are pretty much the lowest points of anime right next to Queen's Blade.

For the most part, I agree. Harems are just fan service 95% of the time. The only good harems I've seen are ones where it isn't the main focus of the plot like Demon King Daimao and Girls of the Wild's. And the only harem I've ever seen that I would say was great was Ichigo 100% (manga, not anime) because they put genuine emotion and depth to all of the characters
TL;DR: You're mostly right.
User avatar #151 to #103 - Bad Man (08/03/2013) [-]
I disagree. Tenchi Muyo kicked ass, and there are some other quality harem series if you look.

What I tend to hate is most anime's based of a manga that got really popular cause then they catch up the manga and become terrible. All of Ken Akamatsu's work that's happend to. Which sucks hard because he's a really good writer.
User avatar #213 to #103 - pokimone (08/03/2013) [-]
There have been a few I've enjoyed, but for the most part, I agree with you wholeheartedly. I think I've only ever enjoyed 2 harem anime, Rosario + Vampire and Sekerei, and even those not as much as most other things. If you can count Clannad (technically speaking, it is a harem anime, although entirely different than the rest.) I guess I've enjoyed 3. Considering Clannad and Clannad Afterstory are my favorite anime of all time. (shut up, I count them as one.)

GOD DAMM SHUFFLE! YOU LAZY BASTATRDS!
They reused the SAME exact character development for two characters(elf chick on the right, and red hed closest to the dude) Basicly is "We where two people, now where one"((don't ask)) The only thing i loved about this serries is how it took the turn for the one Childhood friend, That was dark and ((the orange haired one was a creepy bitch who had issues)) thats the only good bit.

Does Code Geass count as a harem? There were at least 3 girls who liked LeLouch. Of course, it heavily focused on plot not related to romance and he never did anything with any of the girls, though I think he kissed one.

While I would never try to deny that Sekirei has an unspeakable amount of fanservice, the story is actually not bad. The manga's pretty good, and it's been pretty focused on the actual plot lately.

A k, I've never watched a harem then.
#179 to #103 - ssjmizu ONLINE (08/03/2013) [-]
Really I've been just watching Sol **** and random anime, like Nichijou or some other anime thats name escapes me right now, but it's ******* hilarious. I'm come across a harem/reverse harem, watch it, like some of the charecters, hate the others then move on. Recently, with watching Titan I think I should try and find some more action anime. God titan is awesome.
#127 to #103 - redrock (08/03/2013) [-]
If it were a mary-sue issue then more MC wouldn't be near blank slates. It's really just easier for audiences to place themselves in the shoes of that MC if there aren't any stark differences between themselves and that character.

Besides that, though your idea of it being a male fantasy constantly revisited may be legitimate for a small portion of harems, I think that it's just a lazy premise for comedy shows. If you need easily written comical situations then it helps to have a psycho, a bitch, a princess, etc. interacting and fighting. The harem is is just an excuse for them to be around each other instead of doing the logical thing and not speak to each other. The obliviousness works to maintain the situation that makes these funny situations happen (being indecisive) and often just makes the MC a straight-man to the girls' funny-man in a comedy act.

Sorry for the long post

I've moved from ecchi harems to shoujo, and SoL anime.
There's just always something pissing me the **** off in real life, so I just like to go out on my porch, have a smoke, and watch cute girls do cute things.

I'll find the occasional harem from time to time, watch that, best girl doesn't win of course because **** my life, and then watch something cute enough to make me stab a child in the mouth.

Well I've never seen a reverse harem, but the shoujo I watch usually tends to be a quiet girl who can't make friends falls in love with most popular dude in school.

It's all preference, I don't usually talk **** on the anime people watch because there's no need to. We all have a style we like so we stick to that style

i think both of you are wrong because the anime world is huge and if you look for harem and schools that's what you gonna get, instead watch shows like Claymore , Berserk or Basilisk kouga ninpou chou, Ninja scroll and then tell me all this crap about today anime been all moe-ish, pic from Basilisk

Generally, yes.
But there are a very slight few number of exceptions.
Bakemonogatari, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?, and Haganai! to name a few.
Granted Haganai! isn't held to the same caliber as the other two, it's still a step above your traditional harem.

And you can't really be so judgemental about harems and then talk about how great Fate/Zero is. Fate/Zero only exists because of harems. It's a prequal to the Fate/Stay Night series, which is an animated adaptation based off an eroge (adult dating sim with pornographic themes)
