Ok, so I couldn’t sleep and decided to turn on my PC again. And guess what made my day today? (At 12 AM Philippine time.) Somebody asked, “When Will The Harem Anime Genre Die?”. My thoughts? Although I won’t shed a tear of sadness if it does get wiped out from the face of the Earth, I think this genre is here to stay. I remember when I was still in school, I rented Tenchi Muyo In Love and I didn’t even know what harem was (or any anime genre for that matter). I thought at that time it was a pretty decent show. Even I was surprised that Suzuka was classified as harem, and yet it was quite watchable. But then they’re the exceptions for me, most of the time I avoid harem shows while I can. Still I know that for a lot of folks harem shows are enjoyable, and there’s certainly room for everyone in this hobby of watching anime. 🙂
