^well, i suppose all u came across until now were 'boy/male/man-targeted' stuff then xD
even i get irritated by all those wet-dream-teenager shounen LN/Anime/Manga/etc. lol
u may want to try out some 'reverse harem' =))
i can understand why harem isn't too popular, honestly unless you have gone through 5+ years of watching trashy harem high shcool anime you will never get numb enough to ignore it in a story and just get used to it and it would just shock any normal persons sensibilities.
Any ways, the thing i ABSOLUTEL detest in a story (i don't really mind much as long as they are well written in general.) is vagueness, ambiguity, a fuzzy sense that there is something right infront of you but you just can't see it because it is being obstructed by paragraphs upon paragraphs of fuzzy terminology. An author need to understand what they are meant to and should be doing in a story is making the little pictures in their head as clear as possible and transcriping it into words for another person to get something close to the pictures in your heaad! and when you bring such stuff into a writer's attention they will shout at the top of their lungs' ''but LOOK AT CHAPTER 13 PARAGRAPH 3, I CLEARLY STATED THIS AND FORESHADOWED IT!'' like their readership are some sort of telepaths and can pick out the peculiar word or sentence in a chapter. god damnit i am here to read a story and be entertained not trying to play find waldo!! don't misunderstand i am not against foreshadowing and dropping hints on the background of certain characters. i am not againstthe setup for information going to be revealed in THE FUTURE! i am against information in the NOW not being revealed and stated in clear to understand terms.i don't want to second guessing where i am in the story at any given point in the storylind, there must always be 100% clarity on what is going on, basically an author should be able to draw a readers attention to what is important and drop anything that isn't or will only serve to confuse to reader. and if it is a story like that then the author has to make that clear too through their storytelling!
