Just when I'd thought we'd finished talking about that...
...
If you mean the kind of harem Tenshi talked about, maybe. If you mean a typical anime harem, hell no.

:D If another female child is introduced before a male, then I consider it a harem.

Harem meaning a single male surrounded by females, with romantic connections being OPTIONAL.
If you're talking about the common view of a harem(incorrect) that has girls falling for the main character, although it might happen, no one really wants it to. I think it's because most harems nowadays are pretty shallow.

... what? I don't get you.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

harems only need the male character surrounded by three or more female characters. Romantic connections are not required.

Actually definition of harem - single character surrounded by members of the opposite sex, common ratio being 1 male to >3 female

The common definition that many assume to be correct(which it isn't), would be a male surrounded by a bunch of 'well-endowed' females that fall for him.

Um, before we get too weird

Maybe it was Chi. Though its unlikely since she's only just started developing her shapeshifting powers. My money's on Aku, or Mimi just hallucinating.

You think this is weird?
It doesn't seem like you read or even skimmed half of the 1st page of the thread.

Why have I been so bitchy lately? :/

Sigment Kurosai wrote:Very unlikely. As far as we know, Aku is unaware that Mimi is there. Just as well, he may still be in the spa with Him. We don't know if what we're seeing is happening while Him is visiting Aku, or after he already did. Lastly, Aku can't avoid his color scheme when he shifts. He would look nothing like Jeff.

The same principle applies to both Aku and Chi. It's just a hallucination brought on by starvation. Again, just look at the title.

I think it's a combination of food hallucination and Aku shapeshifted into Jeff. The smell made her think of Jeff and she saw Aku shapeshifted into Jeff and hallucinated that Aku had the right colour scheme to look just like him.

Remember, Aku cannot change his color scheme when he shape shifts. He doesn't have any purple at all on him (Only Green, Red and Black). If you go back a few pages to when he made Chi laugh, you can see that he is still holding true to this rule.

Here is a quote from the page on Aku (http://samuraijack.wikia.com/wiki/Aku):

"Shapeshifting: Calling himself the "Shape Shifting Master of Darkness" at the opening of each episode, Aku can change into virtually any form he desires, from a giant dragon to a small insect, or even a beautiful woman. He can also change his size, liquefy himself, stretch, and expand his body. Aku's consciousness can exist even in a part of himself. He typically changes into animal forms that are threatening to fit certain situations, such as a scorpion or an octopus, adapting to the situation. He is however limited to his own colour scheme, no matter what form he takes, it will always be black, red and green. Also, his true reflection will always appear, even in another form."

Edit: Also, I think that the alarms on Castle Grim would have went off if Aku/Chi had somehow managed to infiltrate it (Remember what happened in "Castle Crashers" when the security cameras caught Mimi?). Not to mention how angry Mandy is at being blindsided twice. I would hope that she increased the defense around and inside of Castle Grimskull.

Simply put, all evidence points to hallucination.

We are back in the Heram talk again.
I fully support it.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 8:18 pm

I don't. We went through it twice now.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 8:20 pm

A harem? Hmmm ... I am intrigued by this.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 8:27 pm

I don't understand what there is to support.

It's not a very interesting discussion. It honestly won't be relevant at all, at least to me, until one of 2 things were to happen. One, Chi somehow accepts Junior as a friend to a certain extent, I'm thinking with a tsundere vibe if anything. and/or Two, another female about their age is introduced and implied to become a reoccurring character. By definition, just having Chi meet Junior, without the introduction of another male that would join the group of Underworld kids, Junior would have a harem.

I'll state it again. Harem is the ratio of (in most) male to females. With romantic relation being optional. The magic ratio being 1:3. Meaning a group with 4 guys and 12 girls is considered a harem. Feelings for one another and sexual preference being meaningless, as long as they're all somewhat friendly and connected.

Course, I honestly don't see any interesting conversation topic coming until something else besides Junior/Mimi happens. I still want to talk about the possible cameos and allies in a possible war. Anyone else have another topic to discuss?

Will there be zombies? Thats all I can think of. Zombies are cool. Particularly the ones from left4dead.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

I personally think Grim will play a mage role in a battle. Summoning an army of undead would be fun to watch. I wonder if Him will recruit Grim's enemies, like Jack O' Lantern.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 9:03 pm

That would be something to see, HIM gathering all the enemies of the Grim family to defeat them.

I'd say left 4 dead zombies and dead space Necromorphs.

What was the name of that Goddess of Chaos, or whatever she was? Who would she support in the war? I would imagine she would join Mandy and Grim, for two reasons:

A) She loves to spread chaos, and she would get lots of opportunities if Mandy starts a war.
B) More importantly, she was in love with Hoss Delgado, who was killed by Him. Something I would consider to be a reason not to join his side.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 9:29 pm

Eris was her name.
Oh how she was a total bitch.

Didn't Hoss and Eris break up in the show? Something about bringing too much order to her chaos or something.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 9:50 pm

What about that vampire from Mimi's backstory? Which side do you think he will join. He might be under contract, or be really pissed at Him for taking his castle. Just Food for thought.

Re: Shadows of the heart's eye...

Tue Jul 09, 2013 9:55 pm

In the other discussion, 2 thoughts were mentioned.
Vlad wants to get back at Him.
Vlad has to fight for Him, bcuz he owns the castle. W/e reason, it roots to Him owning it.
