Harem is an anime genre that depicts polygamous relationships. While polygamous relationships are acceptable in some societies, they remain a taboo topic in most societies, where having multiple partners is even frowned upon. Different societies may have different views on the subject, but in the anime world, shows about polygamous relationships have such a large fan base that they are divided into two niche genres: harem and reverse harem.
While the former revolves around a male protagonist with multiple partners, the latter focuses on women-centric stories with multiple male love interests for the main character.
