Ah, harems. You can't help but be jealous of the lead of an anime/ manga series for being able to attract several to many folks of the same or opposite sex who have varying degrees of affection for them, whether they want it or not. XD

In an early tribute to Valentine's Day, I will be hosting a voting tournament here on Vice where folks will get to decide on which anime and/ or manga harem is the best of them all. I plan to make this a 32 or 64 entrant tournament involving the harems of major characters from a number of anime and manga titles. Here are the rules of the nomination phase for this tournament:

Nominating Rules:

  1. Vice members are allowed to nominate as many applicable harems as they want.
  2. Once a vote is made, a second vote in support of any nominated harem from any member is required for a nominee to become an entrant. Vice members aren't allowed to make second votes on their nominees.
  3. Nominees and entrants will be regularly counted and updated by yours truly throughout the span of nominations. Regularly check the opening post of this thread for updated voting totals.
  4. Nominations will run for two weeks (January 28 will be the deadline for simplicity's sake). After that, the first 32 or 64 harems that gained two votes to become an entrant will be involved in the tournament.

Nominee Requirements:

  1. A harem must have at least three boys and/or girls that are attracted to the focused male or female, at least three of which having a major or supporting role within their title.
  2. Only two harems per anime/ manga title or franchise are allowed in this tournament. I'll allow more than two nominees per title/ franchise for the voting phase. But after two entrants from said title/ franchise officially become entrants, then any more will not be accepted.
  3. Harems from dating sims, visual novels, novels, eroge and video games are allowed to be nominated, so long as the title(s) in question have had at least one anime or manga adaptation.
  4. Reverse and same-sex harems are allowed.

With the rules laid out, feel free to let loose with nominating your favorite harems. :D

Bump.

Taka, this is something you should think about especially with what the Fate/ Stay Night game exposed to you. :P

I know has a Harem genre list.

Nominee Requirements:

  1. A harem must have at least three boys and/or girls that are attracted to the focused male or female, at least three of which having a major or supporting role within their title.
  • Is this a Zombie? - You have Shimomura, Orito, King of Night (though, he died later on) I'm not sure about this show since there are no new guys taking King of Night's place.
  • To Love-Ru - You have Zastin, that loser guy that is voiced by Bossun's VA, and your main character.
  • Alice in the Country of Hearts would have count, but it has 2 girls since Alice's sister is dead or missing. Don't count that franchise.
  • Sword Art Online isn't a harem, but it's somewhat is. You got Klein, Kirito, and Egil for the first requirement.
  • Rosario Vampire actually has a lot of guys. Gin and the Martial Arts Dude are the supporting character.

@takashichea: Yup, I already made Harem genre list and Reverse Harem list. I never finished it though.

Also, you can use this link to search for harem anime on AV here: Harem and for harem manga here: Harem

I hope it helped...

@bigz007:

Don't worry about it. I was using your list and promoting it here for folks who want to check.

@takashichea: Is This a Zombie technically had a harem since Ayumu had to put up with Haruna, Eucliwood, Seraphim, Yuki and Sarasvati living and/or crushing on him. Not sure about the other titles off the top of my head due to my lack of exposure to them. I'll have to look into them later when I'm home and settled from work.

@Dream:

Oh, I was confused by your rules when you said "and/or" I thought you meant that a harem series needed three boys as supporting characters or play an important role in addition to the three girls as love interests in the harem.

@takashichea: The wording I put in was in case the anime or manga involved a reverse harem (several boys attracted to one girl) or had someone gay or lesbian involved in the harem antics.

@Dream:

Sorry about that. It's my fault since I can't read.

Those shows I recommend are definitely following your rules.

Made some tweaks on the rules for nominating and voting. Read the opening post to see updated rules.

@Dream: I would like to nominate several:

  • Keiichi Morisato's harem (Belldandy, Urd, Skuld, Peorth, Lind, and Hild) - Ah! My Goddess
  • Yu Narakami's harem (Chie Satonaka, Yukiko Amagi, Rise Kujikawa, Naoto Shirogane) - Persona 4 the Animation (not sure if I should count this one)
  • Ichika Orimura's harem (Houki Shinonono, Cecilia Alcott, Langyin Huang, Charlotte Dunois, Laura Bodewig) - Infinite Stratos
  • Tenchi Masaki's harem (Ayeka, Ryoko, Washu, Kiyone, Mihoshi Sasami) - Tenchi Muyo franchise
  • Issei Hyoudou's harem (Rias Gremory, Akeno Himejima, Asia Argento, Xenovia) - High School DxD

@takashichea said:

  • Sword Art Online isn't a harem, but it's somewhat is. You got Klein, Kirito, and Egil for the first requirement.

You could classify Kirito from SAO as having a Harem:

  • Kazuto Kirigaya's Harem (Asuna, Suguha Kirigaya, Lisbeth, Silica).

I think the only reason it fails is because many members of his harem fall more so into cameo roles rather than supporting roles.

Oh, one more that I forgot to mention

  • Takashi Komuro's Harem (Rei Miyamoto, Saeko Busujima, Saya Takagi, Alice Maresato) - High School of the Dead.

Entrants accepted. Yu's case (for Persona 4) would technically be a harem since the source video game gives you the option of becoming romantic with any of the four major females involved in the group and all four are still drawn to him in the anime.

And remember folks, be sure to vote for any nominees you want to see be an entrant for the tournament (so long as you didn't nominate them).

Since no one has done it yet ill nominate kamijou touma, also from index. Harem includes misaka, her clones, index, kanzaki, itsuwa, lessar, birdaway, and more.

I'd also like to nominate darshe from bastard whos harem includes yoko, 2 archangel s and more.

Just added in a number of harems to many of the titles suggested. Only ones I'm not sure about due to lack of info on are Bastard and Alice in the Country of Hearts, the latter I have no familiarity with.

hitsu, who else has Darsh attracted? Only ones that come to mind for me are Yoko and Nei from seeing the 90s OVA anime adaptation of Bastard.

@Dream: I guess nominations count as a vote from the person that nominated them, huh? haha.

Then I would like to vote for Tsukune Aono's Harem (Moka [both personalities], Kurumu, Yukari, Mizore, Ruby) from Rosario + Vampire to be a final entrant. As of now that's my only vote. Outside of my own nominations it's the only one I'm familiar with.

@Delphic: Can't vote twice for whatever you nominated. Whatever you nominate requires a vote from another Vice member for it to be an entrant.

@hitsusatsu11: Nomination accepted.
