You honestly think he's gonna pic? No, I think the story's gonna end with him going to college and everyone still chasing after him like a moron.

Tatenashi sisters are 100% Japanese. What do you mean by olympic system? I'm not too familiar with that, but it's definitely close enough with soccer system, with the only difference being you don't have to stay for a certain period of time in the country before representing it.

Well, it was/is a popular fanon idea that the Sarashiki's are half-russian. Many people did have a good reason for thinking that.

Make a choice, and you'll end up dead anyway. Same deal with Ichika: "Uh...it feels like no matter what I say, It's not gonna turn out good for me."
whose the person that fights against other world creatures? index?
Too many members in Touma's harem, I have lost track.

Back to IS, is there definite news on vol 8?

Oh, you meant IS? Yeah, I heard about that. Apparently he's more less done Volume 8, but has not set release date. Isn't he switching to Kodansha?

That being said though, Touma has many female acquaintances, but really only a very few of them are actively pursuing him as oppose to say Kinji and Ichika, where probably 60% of their story is harem stuff.

Plus it doesn't hurt that there is a strong cast of other male characters trying to start their own harems, some with more success than others.

Different emphases in each series, really. Index doens't sell (just) for the harem-antics, it sells because Touma's a badass. Aria and IS however, do use the harem as as a selling point, with much less emphasis on combat, and as such, the MC's are a lot less badass in combat, funnier, but less badass.

I guess that's why I'm hesitant about most MF Bunko titles, they emphasize way too much on the harem aspect.

See, that's the thing, harem antics can be seriously entertaining IF DONE RIGHT. But so many author's/mangaka/directors throw it in for the sake of putting adding in cliches to the premise, rather than actual interest in the topic. I'm proud to say that I've immersed myself in a variety of media, and the (very) few that do actually emphasize on the harem aspects, with actual interest in the aspect itself, turn out pretty well. If the authors actually focused on the relationships, group dynamics, or even everyday life of the characters in situations like that, rather than just throwing in antics for the sake of comedy or a quick domestic violence joke (I'm looking at you ZnT, Aria, IS, Index... sigh... yeah pretty much all of them really...) there could actually be some real potential there. But sadly, most people are scared of the 'new' and even amongst those whoa aren't, there's very few who can even imagine sucha concept, let alone develop it...

*Sigh* it's sad, but true that 9/10 times we can predict the ending just by looking at the premise, and the character's hair colour...

^ Hmm some food for thought and you double posted .
If they do author's/mangaka/directors something new and fail what then?

Then it doesn't become popular in Japan and we never hear about it in the Western world. If it's not popular enough, translators don't go for them, scanners don't post them, and sellers don't list them. I'm not saying that no one's tried it yet, I'm saying that no one's who's talented/lucky/big enough has tried it, so it hasn't really sprouted. The result? We don't have access to them.
