When was the last time you're seen a harem series? 2006? Because most of the spineless seem to have died off then.

So if the guy wasn't pointless and lonely...? Or if there's a greater plot moving things behind it all...?

A population of 1:2 in favor of girls feels about right to me.

You do realize that yuri shows are marketed to the same desires of horny teenage otaku right ?
