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.)

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.

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)

Really I've been just watching Sol shit and random anime, like Nichijou or some other anime thats name escapes me right now, but it's fucking 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.

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.

I disagree. Tenchi Muyo kicked ass, and there are some other quality harem series if you look.

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.

i think it's either an excuse of a bored animator or i can't find a good reasoning behind harem animes, it's too shallow without guns/swords

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

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.

All I watch is harems

Well I can't say that anymore, because none have come out, but 80% of my MAL is harem anime

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is the best harem anime I've ever seen, you should watch it!

I watched this knowing NOTHING about what it was. I thought I was going to be watching a harem by the looks of it, which would have been fine but it totally threw me through a loop.

I've moved from ecchi harems to shoujo, and SoL anime.
There's just always something pissing me the fuck 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 fuck my life, and then watch something cute enough to make me stab a child in the mouth.

#114 to #113 - techniik ONLINE (08/03/2013) [-]
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 shit 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'm not sure what you mean by it, but School Days is basically a reverse harem.

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
