Can't find a search thread; so making my own.

I've been skimming over some harem anime lately - the usual naive male MC surrounded by attractive females, to the point where anyone looking from the exterior can (mistakenly?) assume he's deliberately making a harem.

Well, between all the clueless-ness we're seeing, I've got this urge (or curiosity) to find a story told from the point of view of one of the female "harem" members who does not have any feelings what-so-ever for the MC. For that matter, neither might anyone else. The comic twist is that anyone else looking at the group would assume it's a harem, but none of the members themselves think so.

Bonus points if the group themselves are aware they are creating that kind of impression, but take it in good fun.

For series... doesn't Black Lagoon sort of fit? Perhaps Crest of the Stars, or even Martian Successor Nadesico

For stories with that angle... Hmmm... Lord Raa started a Black Lagoon one where Balilika had Rock help her promote jealousy in Revy and Roberta for revenge on them for a public slight they did... They were not technically a couple, and had fun doing it, but was set in such a way as they could grow into being a couple... he did not feel like naming it and called it 'Something aka Thingy'.

I think that fits.

Sadly, I haven't seen Black Lagoon. :( Crest of the Stars was a nice show - but did the main couple get surrounded by attractive females? It's been so long that all I remember of the show is that there was an official couple. Martian Successor Nadesico was a lot of comedy. Hmm... now that you mention it; it might fit the bill. But they pushed the comedy more than the harem bit. And towards the end, when the main couple was "officially" shown, I think I got mental whip-lash.

Perhaps I should read Lord Raa's story. Is it readable for someone unfamiliar with the original ?

Hmmm... For crest of the stars, there were a few females around the 'main couple'... including the navigator, and I could never tell if Admiral Spoor was serious in her interests or not. There was also their unit commander....

As for the Black Lagoon story... Black Lagoon is a bit grittier than most anime, character backgrounds would help... you might want to at least look up on a site that has them the basic character backgrounds of Balalaika, Revy, Rock, and Eda...

Need to look down a number of posts (May 2013), he removed the first post, and reposted later to redo formatting... in total it is some 31kb text format.
