is currently in TRS here
A Reverse Harem
occurs when one of the main goals, besides the plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female lead and one of several male characters. These works are unsurprisingly geared towards a female market.
In Japan, this occurs often enough to be called a genre known as Otome, or "Maiden." This occurs most often in games, and slightly less often in Anime and Manga.
generally mirrors the Harem Genre
, though typically with the focus on Fanservice
shifted to the emotional relationships between the characters. Though that isn't to say that Fanservice
doesn't occur, multiple Bishounen
compete for the female lead's attention, Shirtless Scenes
, abound, and there's even a subset of the genre strictly for Boy's love
This is less likely to occur in western works, but that's not to say it doesn't. Literature aimed at young girls, and Fanfiction
are two places this is likely to pop up in the west.
