I think I've picked up on a trend, over the years, of increasingly bland and ineffectual MCs in harems shows. I'm wondering how long it will be before someone makes a harem show and leave out the MC entirely. Maybe this has already been done?

They're supposed to be insert characters for viewers to project themselves onto, but also wish fulfillment, what the viewer wishes he was like back in high school.
I think a accurate MC to represent the average fan of harem anime would look like Arita from accel world, act like Makoto from school days(or at least try), and have the personality of Satou from NHK or Takumi from ChäoS;HEAd

a harem show without the MC would probably be just a group of 4+ girls hanging out. essentially the majority of SOL anime.

Yeah, I was thinking that the MC might exist, but only off camera. The group of girls would talk about the MC and fight over him and stalk him and fap to him, but we'd never have to look at him. The could go on a onsen trip with him, but he would always be in the other pool and maybe the girls go to an all girls school that is near an all boys school that the MC goes to.

Just play a VN if you're looking for that kind of experience
>> No. 12540 [Edit]
I've thought for the longest time that a harem anime set in the MC's perspective would be rad, and I don't get why they haven't tried it yet. one need only look at all the dinner photos that otaku take to see there is a demand for such a project. after all, most VNS are done in this way
>> No. 12541 [Edit]
Because then it's harder to get good angle shots of the cute girls
>> No. 12542 [Edit]
I wouldn't watch it.

So you want Love Plus: The anime.

There's a reason why it's a game and not an anime.

Also, harem anime are usually shit. That's a fact in my opinion.
>> No. 12546 [Edit]
What if there was a MC, he got screentime but he were a broom? A broom. About half a dozen cute girls fighting for the affection of a broom. A broom has no brains, a broom would never realize women are romantically interested in it, a broom is dragged around by women as they well please, and brooms are much like dicks, much alike your usual harem MC but physically incapable of spitting horrid dialogue lines.
Maybe the incentuous imouto can be a feather duster even.

A crossbreed between a harem anime and a mute-protagonist FPS is another promising idea, but this is no /vg/.
>> No. 12547 [Edit]
No, the imouto should be a meido
>> No. 12548 [Edit]
I don't understand why the first person perspective has to be limited to games.
>> No. 12551 [Edit]
Come to think of it, we haven't had ANY shows that had a broom protagonist!
>> No. 12553 [Edit]
It probably would sweep up the show.

stupid edit button!

If there is no MC for the trashy, archtypical girls to lust over, they will instead lust over each other.

Either it goes full self-insert or full /u/, with only a few minor exceptions that only sort-of count in any case.

no, the show would have an MC, but he would always be off camera somewhere. a typical scene might go something like this:

(setting MC's high school classroom)
HAREM GIRL A: hey Harem girl B-chan, MC-kun is coming over to my house after school
HAREM GIRL A: yeah, I'm making dinner for him, my curry is the best!
HAREM GIRL B: I'm coming over too, I'll make dessert!
HAREM GIRL A: really, what are you going to make for dessert?
HAREM GIRL B: reaches into her bag for a cosmetic item and starts applying ichigo lip gloss in a sensual manner
HAREM GIRL A: I don't want that for dessert, Harem girl B-chan
HAREM GIRL B: where is MC-kun anyway? maybe I'll give him his dessert right now.
HAREM GIRL A: Oh, hes in the bathroom taking a dump

Uh, nerd cultures? What nerd culture features humongous amounts of homosexual activity?
>> No. 12568 [Edit]
Are you talking about furries or something?
>> No. 12570 [Edit]
But prisons have actual gay sex. Shotacon and shota traps are more pedophilic than homosexual.
>> No. 12571 [Edit]
Kigurumi is not necessarily homosexual, and 99% of shotacon is straight shota.
>> No. 12574 [Edit]
most Kigurumi, the kind involving masks and cosplay to look like anime characters, is done by men, and yeah guys like to have sex with each other in those costumes.
>> No. 12575 [Edit]
I agree

A known homosexual moderator deleting posts that point out homosexuality in community's like this.

I thought that it was okay to talk about homosexuality and joke about it, uguu.

only if you're talking about it in a positive light.

I'm not sure if this is denial or some kind of joke. but you can't possibly be serious if you think there isn't anything homosexual about a community of men who enjoy masturbating to boys in drag (traps) and hermaphrodites (dick girls). I don't see how you people could bastardize the word 'pretend' then claim not to be homosexuals. or is this another case of lying to yourself in the same way that sodomy between men is "not gay unless balls are touching"? and are you really going to completely ignore everything surrounding fujoshi? seriously? if I had a dollar for every doujinshi with a female character growing a penis, I'd be one rich motherfucker.
and no this isn't homophobia, this is simply pointing out a fact. a fact that I can't for the life of me understand why people who so openly and joyfully partake in homosexual media would be so reluctantly to admit to their own homosexuality. if you're really that ashamed of being called gay, why would you open discuss and share your futanari or trap materials?
otaku culture is filled with homosexuality, that's all there is too it. why you guys would be offended by it is beyond me. no one is here to judge you or criticize you for your interests. it's not like people get this worked up when you call them a lolicon right?

No, you're completely wrong, much of Kigurumi cosplay is in fact homosexual in nature, this is not a matter of opinion it's the truth.

Calling porn featuring girls with dicks and little boys in female clothing drawn very much like little girls are drawn "homosexual" is Ford Driver behaviour, are you a Ford Driver? If so, >>>/4chan/ is that way, Ford Driver.

Ford Driver.

It's not black and white. Why are you so ashamed to admit that?

breathing is ford driver behavior, maybe you should stop that?

I like anime, too.

Obviously there are homosexual elements in dickgirls and shotas, trying to deny that is just hypocrisy.

>porn featuring girls with dicks and little boys in female clothing drawn very much like little girls are drawn
Here's a question, why not just go with actual women? you know, girls with vaginas and little girls in female clothing drawn very much like little girls are drawn.
You know what I think? I think it's becuase you just find males more arousing, and you seem to be in denial of your own feelings. you're defending your interest in boys as not being gay by claiming they 'look' like girls, but they're still boys, and that's what you like about them isn't it? I think you'd do yourself a huge favor if you just came out of the closet, no one would hold it against you. Sure society has stigmatized homosexuality, but people here a bit more tolerant. people are what they are and you should just come to terms with it and stop lying to yourself, you'll feel a lot better about yourself if you do.
>> No. 12614 [Edit]
this is like asking why people here prefer 2D girls over 3D. It's obviously something you are not going to understand so you might as well stop arguing about it, since it makes you look like an ass

If someone with a waifu who hates 3DPD refused to acknowledge the fact that he has a waifu and doesn't like 3DPD, it would be just as crazy as this.
but you're right, I can't understand why people who are sexually attracted to boys are so defensive and anal about being referred to as homosexual. This is like a furfag not wanting to admit he's a furfag in spite of jerk off to furries everyday with his furfag friends becuase furfags are such a hated group. If pointing out the truth makes me a ass then so be it, I'm not the one lying to myself here and getting worked up over nothing.
>> No. 12617 [Edit]
Again, you're acting like an annoying idiot. Or "annoyingfag idiotfag", to put it in your retard language. I could also put a picture from a shitty cartoon next to this post, if it will help you

I acknowledge I may be going too far and annoying in my teasing, but acting like a know it all and arguing with people about something as grey as fetishes is annoying too. Especially when you present it in the form of a post a child from 4chan would make
>> No. 12623 [Edit]
This coming from someone who thinks a proper defensive argument is calling the other person a stupid ass.
>> No. 12624 [Edit]
"furfag furfag furfag south park picture. i'm right btw" isn't a very good argument either

I think you're ignoring every point that was made.

you're just trolling aren't you?

But I already am going for both little girls in female clothing, and little boys in female clothing, and both of the aforementioned without any clothing. Why? Because it arouses me real good, and that's the extent of what I know.

Trying to rationalize human sexuality outside strict scientific research results in things like Freud/Jung at best and dumb discrimination and witch hunts at worst. It's basically psychology on crack with even less regard for science.
