Was watching elfin lied over at Dave’s while my wash went through the Laundromat in his apartment complex. That show just keeps getting creepier and nastier. While watching, it occurred to me that the protagonists in harem anime are remarkably similar to what are known as “cat hoarders”, those well-meaning old ladies who have first one cat, then two, then three, then eventually, every stray cat they come across, until the population exceeds the food budget, and old cats die without being buried, and starving young ones start cannibalizing the corpses of the dead, in a horrible dark chaos that brings nothing more to mind than Make Room, Make Room. Harem protagonists are girl hoarders.

Yes, elfin lied is that kind of show. My clothes are clean, and yet I still feel dirty.
