A harem story done RIGHT.

To all the HaremHaters, read before you give this story a negative review. While the description may make this story seem like a weeb fantasy, it isn't. Its a rather thoughtful story, focusing on different things, but yes, mainly about getting harem.

And it's pretty good. I read all of it in one go, and didn't regret it.


Story:


Following a nasty breakup with his longtime, abusive feminist girlfriend, Our MC heads to AnimeCon, determined to either spend the weekend sulking or get laid. The former is easier said than done, however, as a close friend gives him a harem charm. Supposedly harmless and as a joke, but with actual consequences.

I myself have never been to a Con, but the way the writer describes it, with all it's attractions and flaws, makes me want to switch countries and attend one. For real. The story progresses at a slow, but steady and satisfying pace, delving into relationships. Messy, complicated things, but well thought out and displayed here. If you came for a harem that consists of girls worshipping the MC for his every move and being nothing more than stereotype cutouts, then you might want to move along.

Around three hundred pages, and we've only gotten through the first day. Normally, in any other story, i'd be silently wishing the author picked up the pace and got to the important ( fugging ) action, but not here. Here, i want it done right.


Style:


I've wondered, quite a few times, if the author is, by some chance, an actual PROFESSIONAL author or some sort of prodigy. Scrap that, he writes better than most romance authors i've seen, prof or no. Better fleshed out and firmer than a certain Flamituff cosplayer's behind. Keep it up.


Grammar:


Squeeky clean. Nothing more needs to be said.


Characters:


Now, the real meat of the story. A Harem without a good, solid and diverse cast is going to fail horribly. Hell, a lot that have them do anyway. The story here isn't about how characters of different looks ans sterotypical personalities fall for the MC, it's about how the cast, with already in-places desires, is influenced towards Brian by the Harem charm, without any of them, even Brian himself, knowing.

Brian starts off as a goodlooking, handsome, confident womanizer just fresh from a breakup, but as the story progresses, we see more of him and his personality. Beneath his smiling exterior is someone who cares, a kind person undergoung very negative effects through the subtle abuse his feminist ex subjected him too. I like how this really fleshes him out, and hope to see more in the future.

Stephanie and Kelly, on the other hand, couldn't be any more different. As polar opposites, its actually a treat to see the two bond together, meanwhile sharply contrasting each other.

Chloe is built as a good, hateable antagonist, with the author being neither too banal or too bland in making the reader dislike her. Instead, it feels naturally done, letting us form out own little conclusions and then suckerpunching us in the nuts.

Even other characters, like Emily and Rebbeca, are well fleshed out. Hell, when you manage to make the random AnimeCon encounters memorable, then you're doing something right.


Conclusion:

AnimeCom Harem might seem like a lighthearted weebromp, but its not. Its a fairly deep story, one that focuses on relationships, with a side of fanservice. All in all, a really good story. Give it a read if you're into it.

I absolutely adore FortySixetyFour's writing style, the amount of attention to detail and effort that is put into it makes it a delight to read, another story that should be checked out is his other story called Trailer Trash on his patreon of the same name, really good. Sorry for the semi-advertisement!

By the love of all things holy and devlish do I enjoy this story. It has few flaws, of which most are grammar related or an odd choice of word here and there. Other than that this is the best slice of life I've seen. It has lots of characters, enjoyable fleshed out ones that draw on stereotypes to create something wholly new and original with good characterization and dialog based storytelling. And that's without even mentioning the plot hook and the tastefully written ero. Thanks for writing my dude, a lot of other writers can learn much from your dialog, myself included.

nice and well fleched out characters (relatable,feel real etc...), good writing style and good flow. This story is quite well made and i got addicted pretty fast xD

i honestly don't have any critics to make and that's rare.

 

ps: i don't understand the gore tag tho, i have yet to encounter any such things^^

Interesting Take On A Classic Genre

  1. Just started reading, but I have to say that i’m pretty impressed. Especially with how the characters and dialogue are actually fleshed out. A lot of the stories I have seen on this site end up with the aforementioned being particularly superficial.

Great story, the plot and the characters are very well written. The attention to detail if great as well. The story is interesting and makes you keep reading chapter after chapter. Usually a harem story has girls that are too bland and cookie cutter cutouts, but in this story, the girls all seem genuine, real and likeable (except maybe Chloe). I'm excited to see how the author will progress with the story.

Not an interesting review (the book is though)

 I hate writing reviews, so just read the other ones, they're all positive anyway and say anything I would want to say better than I could've said it.

Now move along, go read the book, it's great.

A well done story on a cheesy topic that overcomes any initial expectations.

One of my favorite Harem stories.

This is one of those stories I stumbled upon elsewhere that had me hooked from the start. Then my pc broke down and I forgot all about it by the time I got a working pc again. When I saw it posted here and realised what it was, I immediately started following and read it again from chapter 1. This is one of the good harem stories without a superprotagonist going on a fantasy powertrip.

In short the story is generally well written, and the characters are interesting and believeable. The interactions between the characters is very well done.
