Mangaka Destroys a Classic Harem Setup With Simple Logic

One of the trendiest genres is isekai-harem stories! These series tend to focus on an ordinary otaku being transported to a fantasy world to serve as a prophesied savior. As a bonus, the hero goes on adventures with members of the opposite sex to save the world and visit hot springs!

It’s pure escapism, but mangaka Marumikan (Seitokai no Otanoshimi) couldn’t help but poking fun at the genre’s setup by using some real-world logic. Spoiler, it’s not as fun if you take things to its logical conclusion:

 

 

Harem Manga Parody

Narrator: “One day, Takeru, an ordinary high school boy, is transported to another world. His quest to defeat the Demon King starts! And everyone in his party is a girl!

 

Harem Manga Parody

“[A monster appeared! It used Tentacle Attack!]”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Fighter: “Kyaa! Hero, you saw my panties just now, didn’t you!?”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “Put on some damned pants!!!”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “If you are a melee character and you know you’re going to be moving around a lot, why in God’s name are wearing a skirt!? If nothing else, aren’t you cold!? Girls who freeze their legs while thinking, ‘You have to bear with these things to be fashionable,’ are committing a major logical fallacy!!”

Fighter: “I’m sorry…”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “And you’re no better, Monster! What’s the point of attacking by sliding a tentacle across someone’s body!? Is that some sort of psychological warfare tactic!? We’re enemies coming to kill your boss, try taking this a little seriously!!”

Monster: “I’m sorry…”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “I’m really sorry I saw your panties! If it bothers you, Fighter, we can have a healer use a potion or something to erase my memory of it.”

Mage: “What a gentleman…I’ve never met such a wonderful person before…”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Mage: “Be my husband…”

Cleric: “No fair, Mage! I’ve got my eye on Hero too…”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “That’s all it takes for you to fall for a guy!!!”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “What the hell are you thinking, asking a guy you just met to get married!? Do you understand how cute you both are? Have some self-respect!!”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Hero: “If you already think I’m the best guy you’ve ever met, that means you’ve met only lowlife jerks until now! Try meeting more people and meeting each other’s families before you go doing that sort of thing!!”

 

Harem Manga Parody

Monster: “Umm…sorry to butt in…

[Monster is looking to join the party!]

Hero: “Always good to have more party members!”

Fighter, Cleric, and Mage: “That monster’s a girl!!”

 

Still better than daily life, right?

I love all things that are cute, magic-based, and easy going! My biggest obsessions of all time are Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches and Fairy Tail. Let's go shipping!
