Harem

If you see a male character surrounded by multiple female characters gearing towards an awkward love situation, then you’re probably reading a manga of the harem genre. Usually, it’s more than two female characters head-over-heels over a single male character and they’re all typically inside a comedic and oftentimes even romantic situation. But it can also happen that the harem isn’t affiliated with any sort of romance but instead just for the comic relief.
