    Depends on what kind of harem you are making. If you want a good harem with actual personalities I would suggest a limit of 4 that way you would be able to write about each character. On the other hand if you are making a King's harem where it is just a bunch of random girls who have no point in the story then there is no limit. In the end it depends on if the character is actually a part of the story or is just mentioned in passing.

    You write about more than 5 girls, you're just making another God and Devil World or something like that where MC bangs every girl he meets.

    No limits. If 2 is a harem, 3 also a harem. Then why bother with the numbers? Its all about the willingness of the other party. The emperor imperial harem have loads of girls after all. Harem is harem.

    Depends on how the MC gathers the harem members and how he treats them.

    If the story is good, then I guess people can say yes to 2-3. Anything more would be a burden to the reader, author and the MC.
    Even if you dont have a harem, with a good story people will still read your shid. Take ISSTH...

    A Negima-level harem can be good too as long as executed right.
    I've seen 3-4 harems that failed badly due to random cliches and stuff

    I don't understand your question, there is never enough girls in a harem, the more the merrier

    Three is enough. Why? You one on each side of the bed and one on top of you. Anymore is crowded

    I didn’t know what to vote. Yun Che was not an option.

    Seriously, the more women, the harder it is to develop the relationship and write each heroine well. The better an author is, the better they can handle it. If you think you can do it, 2-3 is enough.

    You have a different definitionof harems than me. A harem is never equal, a Harem has a leading role, there is one that is the leader and everyone is under him/her.

    What you mean is a polyamory relationship, in which you love a group of people, and that group loves each other making a circle of love and stuff. A harem does not have that. One has a harem or is part of a harem.

    That depends on the mc... If he's a little piece of shit like most JP MC's 1 woman is already too much...
    But if he's a amazing alpha like Aegir from RTK... As long as he can Keep with them...

    I feel like the 6S should be the maximum. It’s got the most recent functions while still retaining a headphone jack.

    It depends on the person and the case. For some, 1 is 2 too many.
