Levels of Reverse Harem

Reverse Harem titles were very limited when I first started the blog eleven years ago. I was flexible with many titles where it's only one or two guys interested in her and other gray areas. But we are now at a point where I can be strict with labeling reverse harem. Let's start with the classification of reverse harem-ness. This is for my sake too if in case I run off course again.

1. Five Flowers - This is literally reverse harem. The heroine has a harem of her own in her inner chamber. And we only have one example for this, manga and drama, Ooku. I'm not sure if this has already been used in Western Fiction though.

Hello June!

Hana Kimi up until June 30

I created a Patreon calendar for May to match the banner and it totally flew my mind that it was still April banner. BTW June mobile wallpaper/calendar reward is also up on Patreon. Blogging might take a backseat this month as I focus on other pertinent stuff. Watch out for it! :)

It's more of a comparison and contrast of the three.
