Be completely honest, do you like harem anime and manga?
>>
No.

This is my wife.

Mallow is so fucking hot, whoever made her design should design all the poke girls.
>>
>>166571158
I legit played through the entire game without knowing she was female until someone started posting porn of her.
>>
No, it's almost categorically awful.

My wife is so sexy!

I do, but the smaller the harem for me it's better, like your pic, OP, it's the ideal number.

Yes. I'll watch almost anything as long as it's fun.

Your wife is cute.

Thank you! Isn't she just the best?

>>166571070
Yeah. This is the genre that is always fun to watch. I don't really like battle harems, though. Comedy harems are a lot more fun.

>>166571158
I want to give your wife another sibling.
>>
>>166571070
Harems are just another thing. They're not inherently good or bad. If done poorly they're bad, but done well and they can be quite enjoyable. They normally have a good amount of cute girls so that is nice.
>>
>>166574615
That's okay, you can have her.
>>
>>166571070
Yes. Harem anime, manga, LN, even Jrpg.

I like the idea of harem shows, I dislike the execution in most cases.
>>
>>166571070
Of course
>>
>>166571070
Yes, but only if the harem takes a while to fall for the protag and the latter isn't completely oblivious to their advances.
>>
>>166571070
Only if the MC isn't an self-insert or creepy otaku faggot and the girls aren't cock-lusting sluts.
>>
>>166574981
YES

Depends on whether or not harem end.

If no harem end, fuck off.
>>
Only if the lead is female and so are the haremettes. Otherwise I can't stand it.
>>
>>166571070
Only when it's a reverse harem.

Are there any white people in here?
>>
>>166571070
Yes, its been my favorite genre since Love Hina.
But lately I don't enjoy them as much as I used too.
I don't think is the material fault, they are not better or worse than they used to be, its just now there are few harems in its pure form, now is more an element added into everything (mainly fantasy and urban fantasy) rather than a genre of itself, whick leaves pretty small room to develop the girls and the interactions since they are bussy doing magic stuff,
There is also lot of half assed harems that pretend no to be harems (Masamune, Netoge, Snafu, Youkoso...).
I really miss the classic harem formula
>>
>>166575093
One of my favorite things about harems is that it can have lots of cute girls without it being yuri. I generally can't stand yuri.
>>
I actually only watch harem anime.
>>
>>166575235
No, white people are extinct there. Now fuck off.
>>
>>166575235
56% of this thread is white

Reasonable amount of cute likeable girls with likeable male lead is always the best kind of anime I would watch.
Trinity Seven really pleases my dick in that case.

Harem shows can only be truly understood by enlightened oldfags, the most wizened and ancient of otaku know their true value.
There's no better way to spot someone under the age of 35 than when they deride the harem, or if they prefer the abominable battleharem.

Pokemon is the biggest harem series of all time

Yes.

I used to once but over time I realized they are never ending garbage and more often then not have terrible endings. I discovered visual novels and eroge which essentially offer the same stuff as harem but like, with much more options and they actually fug

No, it just makes me cringe most of the time, especially when they go through the motions and have a girl from each "dere" archetype just to make sure they please the plebs actually watching

Pokémon is probably one of the franchises with the best porn though. All hentai artists i like are into pokémon.

>MC isn't a self-insert
All harem MCs are self-inserts. That's the whole point.
>>
>>166571070
I like the concept of the genre but rarely do writers ever actually use it to it's proper effect.
Harems should not have a 'winner'. Harems should be that, harems. More than one winner, Multiple girls ending up with MC.
Having one winner only makes toxic fanbases who argue over best girl, and lord their victory regardless of how fucking awful the overall outcome was coughprisonschoolcough.
Second it breeds spineless beta MCs, something even anti-shounen/hotblooded people are probably sick of by now, who lead girls on, never stands up for himself whose only trait is 'he's a nice guy' and so on.
A good harem is a confident or even semi confident guy going around getting multiple girls through his words AND actions.
I mean shit wouldn't you want a harem manga about a guy trying to learn as many sports possible to pick up /fit/ chicks? Or a Knight wanting to bang Princesses so he kills Teh Demons, Dargons and Big Black Knights?

Did Pokemon SM actually lean to harem shit or nah?

Not much, if the MC is an indecisive bland male doormat (which is, like, 99% of harem genre), for the sake of self-insert.

yes they're fun to watch and read, and one day someone will make one with a decent plot and ending and it will all be worth it in the end

>>166571070
I don't like them, but i don't hate them either. What I hate is when a show has a really good premise and alot of potential, but then it's wasted because the author includes harem elements aswell, and focuses too much on them leaving the overall premise and story in mediocrity

>>166571070
Yes it's the best. However it's difficult to find good large harems. The largest I have seen before character development goes to shit is 5. Past 5 partners it becomes a case of characters being forgotten or poorly developed. Also harem ends are few and far between.

it's the only thing that anime actually does that is different from other media. Everything else you're better off just reading a book or watching a movie.
