These female leads fight for what is right, something that intrigues fans of the genre. Here are 10 great recommendations for those fans.
The reverse harem genre has often been criticized because its female leads are nothing more than, for lack of a better word, doormats. They exist only because they have to, and their inclusion adds nothing to the plot, except that hot guys inexplicably flatter them.
However, with the passage of time, the genre has seen a more feminist take on its protagonists. These girls are brave, feisty, and never take “no” for an answer. They fight for what is right, and this is something that intrigues fans of the genre.
