I'm looking forward to it! An anime with the "old" characters would have been great, but this looks interesting too. Either way, it's nice that this franchise gets some attention again :3

The difference is that your scenario involves a direct one-on-one interaction in which your reaction is being directly, intentionally solicited. There is an expectation that you will make your opinion known whether you want to or not. In these announcement threads, however, to comment negatively you need to choose to proactively read the thread (completely voluntarily), and proactively offer your reaction (completely voluntarily). Without being asked, without any expectation that you will or should or must do so, without any repercussions if you just ignore it entirely. Very different situation.


I disagree. Your definitely delving too deep into it. They underlying point I was trying to get at was that posting "I don't like it" is in no way a rude thing to do. Yet, people are saying it is. The situations may obviously differ, but the meaning behind the metaphor does not.

What's the point in saying you don't like it?


Would you say there is more of a point to say you do like reverse harems than you don't? I mean just flat out saying it, not going on a rant about it. Because that's really all anyone is doing.


Positivity > negativity. That's pretty much my response to that.

I liked the one game that NIS America released over here and ever since I played it I tried to get into the anime franchise but I just couldn't, I don't think this will change especially with it being an otome thing, I'd prefer more from the new york timeline

^this.

Some people come in not expecting it to be reverse harem, find out it is, and then say they don't want to watch it. They aren't typing "I hate reverse harems they suck ass", they are simply saying "I'm not going to watch this because I don't like reverse harems." That is quite obviously an opinion, not trolling.

Then SHE comes in and starts ranting on those whose opinions differ from hers, calling them trolls and saying they don't have the right to post in here. Quite obviously she is doing it to irritate those individuals. If anyone is trolling, it's her, as she is the one being the shit-disturber.

I'm not a huge reverse harem fan either, though so long as it doesn't focus entirely on the romance element (hakuouki or acana famiglia as examples) I'm okay with it. But just because I say I don't like it doesn't mean I'm trolling.


I never really thought it of it that way. Brings a new way to think about it. But like SageShinigami said, isn't it better to say nothing at all if you have nothing nice to say in a situation like this?

I didn't do it to irritate anybody btw. I am sorry if you felt that way.

''Based on Otom...- NO, THANKU.

^ most people will react like this.
But if it turned out to be good, maybe it could reap some serious success like what happened with Ouran anime back then.

I don't get why people who don't like reverse harems comment on this lol. if you don't like it, don't comment on it....

well haters are gonna hate but us fans are gonna say YAY!



Well I like reverse harems but not all are good. So people commenting that they don't like reverse harems are probably saying from experience of those bad reverse harems and just expressing their opinion. Well my point is that not all people saying things about what they don't like are trolls and/or haters. Just expressing their opinion, and they don't expect EVERYONE to agree with them.

I mean NO offense. Like I said before I like reverse harems in general, it's just not all are good. This is neutral comment/statement. :3

Well, forums are made for people to express their opinions. I stated my opinion. You state your opinion. Period.



Now, I just expressed my opinion again. I felt like I got offended by what you said.


For what it's worth, I agree with her. If someone came simply to go, "I hate reverse harems", then personally I don't feel it is an opinion worth expressing.

The only reason I'm upset is because I'm genuinely a fan of the Sakura Taisen universe, and I liked the fact that even though there were multiple girls and one guy, it was NEVER a harem. They didn't fall over the commander--he was just there. The girls all had their own, individual lives. That's something you can't get in anime these days, to the point that I can't even bother to watch a series that has a promo pic of multiple members of one gender and one member of the other because it's usually going to fall into a bunch of harem tropes.

To see Sakura Taisen fall to this, it upsets me.

A reverse harem in Sakura Taisen universe? I've wished for this once!
