    I know that harem novels are a lot--and some even have harem ending with the MC marrying several girls in his harem.
    Some people don't mind it at all and they even love harem.

    Which makes me wonder about your opinion on reverse harem, especially if the ending is a reverse-harem ending (i.e. polyandry or the female MC ends up with more than one guy from her harem).
    Any opinion?

    Also, imperial harem seems to be a justifiable harem and most imperial harem portrays the king with his concubines (well yes, duh). But what about imperial harem with the ruling female having her male consorts?

    The prevalence of reverse harem is way too little compared to harem, which made me wonder. And feel free to mention any example novel that you know of, for comparison.

    Not a thing for me. Anyways, I'm a straight dude so it's easier for me to step into a male protagonist.

    I've read a bunch of harems in my life but never a reverse harem.

    Edit: I do have questions of my own. Do girls prefer reverse harems over regular harems? and do girls prefer a girl protagonist vs guy?

    I think the problem might be that the girl wouldnt be seen in good light. There is controversy in this topic.
    But I like the reverse harem when is only many guys trying to court the girl, is funny and cute.
    The only reverse-harem I'm reading is
    My dear Cold Blooded King, it makes me go all fangirl.

    im unbiased so if the female is capable she should have more men. i read too many toads lusting over swane meat males. at less the girls fall in love with the person and his actions not away at first sight they get horny

    I’m a fond believer on turn about fair play. If your okay with Harems, than Reverse Harem should be on a equal footing.
    So I’m okay with Reverse Harem.

    It's not a conspiracy, a dude can impregnate several women while a woman can only be impregnated by a single man at a time. As ruler what benefit is there for a woman to have multiple husbands, it's not like you can carry multiple children.

    Novels with a girl protagonist is a big no for me, I just can't get in the story and as I am a big fan of the normal harem I am indifferent to reverse harems 'cause I don't read them.

    It is solely focused on the harem? Coz I would drop it even if it's done properly. Now ... if it has a good and entertaining main plot to focus on and the harem ( done properly) is on the sides then it's something I'd read.

    I tend to avoid them as, up to now, I've coudn't find a particulary good one. I think that, maybe, once.. there was an adult story (fiction) that was pretty good, but I'm not sure if I've finished it or not.

    The interesting things is that.. reverse harems are pretty common, it's just that they have a different tag and they came with negative conotations/meanings in the modern/current day.

    I prefer reverse harems over regular harems XD
    And, girl protagonist or guy protagonist doesn't matter as long as the story's good.

    Ah, so if it's a reverse harem but without any R-18 content/depiction, it's okay? XD

    True, and that really made me wonder in case of female ruler X"D

    It's so rare to find guys who hate harems O.O

    Equality!!

    Hmm political benefits, I guess? Strengthening connections, etc?

    Eh really? Is it an old thread?
    And those pictures seem to really disregard equality, but oh well XD

    I hate most harems anyway , just focus on one girl ffs, even 2 are ok and 3 are stretching it too far but anything more is bad. It may be my perverse mind but when I hear reverse harem I think of gangbangs...

    I hate anything with harem from the bottom of my heart. Once upon a time I just hated a love triangle, but then I found out about harem, and then reverse harem.

    Im a girl and reverse harem is my mortal enemy. Has reverse harem in tags? Tab closed. Never seen again.
