It is, but it's not a typical one. I was just pointing out that in most harems the protagonist doesn't instantly begin a long-term relationship with one of the girls that lasts the entire series (so far).

Yeah, and Rias automatically won in Highschool DxD. I guess Issei is not a harem MC then, even though all the other girls want him and he messes around with the other girls as well, which is the same situation with Araragi.

There is no harem.

Arararagi is romantically involved with Crab. He has a deep bond/is soulmates with Shinobu. All the other girls are just there except maybe Snail, but she's gone now, and they never really got too far past a senpai/kouhai relationship until her last moments.

At most it's a 2 horse race, with them not directly competing with each other and the Bat horse possibly getting turned into glue.

>>
>>100422580
Just because he isn't romantically involved equally with all the other girls doesn't mean it's not a harem.

His sexual escapades with all the other girls, and the fact that the other girls lust after him as well, qualify him for a harem protagonist.

Lesbian kouhai, openly expresses interest in Araragi but this is probably a ploy to get him away from Crab and/or initiate an OT3 scenario

Harima was a fucking boss in a typical fucking boss way.

Not a harem (kinda idk) but another MC I actually liked who was male was Ryuuji. He's a boss but not in a really typical way. He can be a bitch at times but in general was a cool guy, nice to his friends, knew what he wanted when he knew/realized what he wanted - and went for it. Also cooked sweet shit like a dope nigga

Touma and negima.

>>100422526
It's not a harem because he doesn't have sexual relations with more than one.

/a/ and anime watchers in general are pretty retarded when it comes to vocabulary. For example, they call NTR when MC's mother or sister has sex with a guy or when MC's love interest goes for another guy.

Harem= 1 guy fucks more than 1 woman and the women involved know about it.
>>
>what is a harem?

You guys are really dumb.

Harem comes from the arabic word "Haram" which means forbidden.

A harem was basically the place where the sultan's wives/concubines would stay. That place was "forbidden" to other male.

Therefore, a harem is a group of women that a man has sex with.

Did Arararararargi fuck someone else other than Crab?

Did Clannad's MC fuck someone else other than Nagisa? No. Therefore, Clannad is not a harem.

Was School days a harem? You could make that argument. However lots of the sex was done behind the girls' back. In a harem, girls know and accept the fact that they share the guy.

Most so-called harems are not harems.

Expand your vocabulary or create a new term for such anime.

Harem, hāremumono (ハーレムもの?), broadly, is an ambiguously-defined subgenre of anime and manga characterized by a protagonist surrounded, usually amorously, by three or more members of the opposing sex and/or love interests.[1] The most common and practically tantamount scenario is a male-oriented harem anime where the main male character is surrounded by a group of females; when it is a female-oriented harem anime, it is informally referred to as a reverse harem, or gyakuhāremu (逆ハーレム?).[citation needed] More recent variants include polyamorous characters and removing the protagonist's opposing sex and/or gender identity to better appeal to a more broadly diverse audience, such as futanari-oriented harems, yuri-oriented harems
