But age-old Harems had the male-to-whom-we-all-kneel favouring one woman over the others anyway.
The others were only there for a bit of eye candy and variety, mostly there for decoration.
I do understand your point, sir, but I just feel that it's too accurate to bemoan.
But my personal gripe with Harem is that there's always that ONE girl who WILL pulverise the guy. He ignores her? That's a pummeling. Asks her out? That's a pummeling? Rapes\\attempted rapes her? That's a pummeling. Is asked out by one of her friends? That's a pummeling. Asked out by HER? Done by a pummeling.
Ugh. Tsundere characters are the ones that annoy me.
