Generally as a manga or anime fan, you are bound to have at least seen or heard about anine/manga that is a part of the harem genre or uses aspects of it.

Basically the whole genre is about one one male lead, and at least three or more girls who are romantically interested in him

What is your opinion on this genre? Is it the shame of the manga/anime industry? Are there some diamonds in the rough? Any that you particularly like or hate?

Well has harem elements given that women follow the lead around but the story is about the comedy of the various situation that Kentaro finds himself.


Love Hina was weird.

Ever seen School Days?

The first few episodes seem like the generic harem anime but it does take some horrible turns later on.


Examples?

You mean for the harem genre? Kämpfer, Love Hina, To Love-Ru are a few examples.

Tenchi Muyo. That was one of my favorite shows when it was on Toonami. I didn't much like any of the other Tenchi shows, however. But as a genre I have not payed much attention to it and probably couldn't handle too much of it. A guy followed by a bunch of girls really isn't that interesting to me and can be pretty silly.

I don't mind it at all. AIKI is under the genre of Harem...And there is nothing wrong with that manga at all :lmao

Never watched Ranma 1/2, Pacifista?

Also while the premise of harem manga are often stupid and/or generic. There are some that are so over the top that it is worth watching.

Plus harem anime combined with other genres can produce pretty fun shows. For example Clannad seems to be combo of harem/drama that has many tear jerking moments. Othereise there are also To Aru Majutsu no Index which has the lead whom a number of girls fawn of over him but it has decent action.

I only saw the anime and it was hilarious. I'd love to pick up the manga.
