Why do so many people hate harems?
Doesn't having more girls make the story better for you guys?

I don't "hate" harems but it's not the type of story I'm looking for.
also it's completely impossible to relate to the situation of the main character, unless you're some kind of sheikh or nymphomaniac.

Because all the characters usually have less personality than a dead fish

Well written characters make a story better for me and harem stories for me are like porn stories without the sex.

I sure love watching the same generic oblivious perma-virgin get surrounded by a bunch of completely unrealistic personalities who all want to wet his dick.

Bitch please, at least add some drama like someone fucking dies.

Harems fall into that group of anime I appreciate as a sort of living painting. Like your TV becomes a picture frame with all this frequently changing eye candy pouring into the living room.

Great to have on when I'm playing music, or just being lazy and watching the day go by. Not often something that I actively involve my attention in.

I like Highschool DXD and Sekirei, they got a little more attention from me.

here's some battle harem
because why have a story where a magical girl fight together with other magical girls in her party
when you can give her a harem and have a story where a magical girl fuse with hot guys in her party to fight

Having more characters means less focus on each character. This applies to any genre. A writer can get around losing focus, by limiting to having around 3 love interests appearing at once in each scene. But sometimes, writers worry about the fans getting angry at not having their favourite boyfriend (or girlfriend) appear with the girl (or boy), so the writer cram too many characters on, thereby hurting the show. The characters become less fleshed out with less room to display their personality.

Unlike a dating sim game, where the gamer can choose which boyfriend route (or girlfriend route) to go down, the harem anime or manga has to spend time to include each love interest. If writer takes time properly and it may take until after episode 40 to introduce the 5th and 6th love interest, which then run into the problem where the executives want to push out merchandise for them much earlier than that.

I don't watch harem anime but from what I've seen it's stupid self-insert fanfiction that sucks because you can't even self-insert because the protagonist is always like
>"WHY ARE YOU TAKING OFF YOUR CLOTHES I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX OH NOOOOOOOOO"

Yeah as if I really identify with a guy who DOESN'T want to fuck a harem of sexy anime girls.

For once I want a cop to approach a group like that and pre-emptively try to arrest them for attempted prostitution.

Harems are really good as long as they don't go Negimi and censor everything

I fucking can't stand when a show bills itself as pervy then has nipple-less tits

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU DO THAT

Download the blu Rays, Doris. Nippleless boobs is a clear sign you're watching the TV Release not the blur rays which usually have a lot less censorship. Never watch harem shows except for blu rays so i never run into anything obnoxious like nippleless tits

beach episode
time for the hero to get herself in a swimsuit and get herself some boys to chase her
and time for her harem to cockblock any boys getting close to her

also for the pervy sage to grope the hero

the beach is the best place for her harem to feed her food and maybe some love potion
which will always end up in some love potion mishap

Harems suck because their is never any real plot progression.
The MC will lollygag and stuff is face in tits but never actually evolve as a character.
It's the most boring kind of anime.
