Let's make a harem show!:

Well, we'd need to know what characteristics we can use. Like my idea of having two of the haremettes think they're in their own heroic fantasy and treat everything like a big adventure while the other characters just look at them strangely. As for trope based characteristics, let's make the evil girl incredibly sexy but let's make the nice girl physically charming in her own way. Oh, and one of the boys should have literal Bishie Sparkles which he attributes to a skin condition.

Here's an idea...

Two girls...

The Villain Protagonist, and the sweet, if Slightly Ditzy Deutragonist.

Then there's a number of boys (plus a girl or two) in a Love Triangle with the girls as the other two points.

The nice girl is Oblivious to Love, the Villain Protagonist is just using it to her advantage.

Let's go with this, except we make the ditzy one just choosing to ignore it, because she doesn't see what's the big deal.

Would including a dueling harem be too much?

I thought we were already working on a dueling harem scenario! D:

Idk. Now that we've got a very broad picture of the kind of characters we're looking to make, let's move on to setting?

Vanilla Real Life or some sort of twist to the mix?

How about we make this occur in a universe typically used by shonen series?

...Shonen series can occur in just about any universe, though if you want to generalize, it's generally Real Life with a twist, rather than a whole cloth fantasy or sci fi setting. There are a metric fuck ton of exceptions to that rule however, on both fronts.

Off hand, pretty much all Humungous Mecha shows stand out.

Wait...a harem series focusing on two girls and their harems...plus mechas? O.O

[up] that would pretty much be Code Geass: The Gender Flip though, considering the characters we're talking about.

OK, but we should have at least some fantastical elements, like a giant mecha made out of cardboard boxes.

Lolwut? I'd say a twist other than mechs tho, something more substantial than the box mechs. I was using mechs as an example for shonen that isn't baseline.

Cyberpunk? Magical Girl? Fighting Shonen? All of the above?

Hmm...Fighting Shonen...

Perhaps a world where Americans still duel for their honor in Shonen-style fights...fueled with passion!

I like Chihuahua's idea — but to fit in with the Villain Protagonist idea, the girl has been wronged somehow by each of her suitors (and they don't know it) and she enjoys watching them fight to the death and intentionally pits them against each other.

Arch nailed it. Should we make it that magical powers are common in this world?

Oh, and in the shower, I thought up an idea for the first four lines:
[Former Boyfriend's] humiliation drove him to both drop out of school and off the face of the earth. This left [Girlfriend's] relationship status as "available". More than a few fellow students rejoiced.

[Girlfriend] pretended not to notice the rejoicing hiding in the hallways as she strolled along alone...

Maybe distribute powers like Avatar: The Last Airbender , lots of people have them, but there's still a bunch of normals, and not everyone has the mental aptitude to master.

One of the members of the Harem should be an extremely over the top Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy semiparody/semihomage/semireconstruction of/to Dragon Ball Z. Just 'cuz.

I'd rather not see another boy with a harem and trying to balance out a bitchy girl and her harem with a nice boy and his harem really rubs me the wrong way.

The Villain Protagonist isn't bitchy...Well, she is, but hopefully in a Magnificent way.

[up][up] Then we stick with having the nice girl instead of a nice boy. Or have a cross-dresser.

Do you think it'll be too cliche to have the "nice" center of the harem be a new exchange student?

I wonder if we should have a contrast between the haremettes themselves what with the villainous girl's haremettes having counterparts in the heroic girl's harem.

[up]If the crossdresser is a boy, then its a boy. If it's a girl, then the answer is up in the air, though seems like a cop out to us wanting a boy, having to stick with a girl. SO no, I'd rather not see a crossdressing girl. One of the haremettes can be a crossdressing girl, though.

[up][up] That's one idea. Not complete counterparts, but there should be parallels.

By the way, I think the OP should have the final say, or at least be the tie-breaker.

Oh, and I decided to watch this thread. This caught my interest more than I thought it would.

Y'know...Haremettes, like the Mickey Mouse Club! OK, bad example. How about...just members of a harem.

[up][up] Yeah...I feel a bit guilty. We seem to be hijacking the thread and steering it in the direction of a different genre.

Then again, just about every "Let's make a" thread veered away from the original genre. Shounen is definitely not a Shounen right now, Magical Girl has veered off a bit...

The OP did make the suggestion that in the end the two girls hook up.
