    What Esprit said, and also, you don't have to play the stereotypes strongly. I mean, obviously it's part of the fun to play a caricature, but, like, there are girls who watch the anime the game's based on and enjoy that part of things, so there are definitely girls, women, and other female-titles who might want to play stereotypical anime girls.

    There should be a Gyaru archetype.

    Holy carp. How has no one written a gyaru archetype yet? I guess you could say my ladette is pretty close, but it's definitely not a perfect fit.

    I feel like it is pretty easily recreated with stuff like School Queen, Delinquent, and several of the homewbrews, but yeah, odd that thatís an archetype that isnít really covered.

    Honestly speaking, I don't think gyaru was a thing in mainstream harem back when HSHC was written. It seems a relatively recent archetype.

    Hmmm. Pardon my asking, y'all...

    ...has the community come up with alternative rules along the lines of... "There is NO designated Protagonist-kun. ALL the PCs count as Protagonists and, via either player choice or GM declaration, any VPs won are either awarded to all, or awarded to whoever the particular PC targets as the object of their affections"?

    I don't think it was done, and I agree it might be worth it.
    From the top of my head...
    Any player can call for a roll, and anyone who attempts and succeeeds, gets an affection points from said player's character... would require tracking a full N2 grid of affection, admittedly... and, i'd say a way to lose affection might be needed...
    Honestly, at this point, might as well do some rewriting of the base system? I believe we have enough playtest data at this point to know the main breaking points...

    The main problem with this is that you would have to remove control over each player's character and force them to "like" another character based on the results of the rolls. Removing player license is never a good thing.

    While definitely true, I just want to mention that Monsterhearts - though it is, of course, drama rather than comedy - does have a "turn someone on" move that can be aimed at other PCs, and mentions that on the success of that move, "that person would feel something towards your character... that doesn't mean they are obliged to act on that feeling in any way, or admit it to anyone, even to themselves."
    So, it is a doable mechanic... just not necessarily a wanted mechanic.

    Also, for such a "everyone's sempai" game, I was pondering on the system of "rotating GMs", where in every episode, a different character becomes a "sempai" and their player sets the scene and calls for rolls (with potential additional rule that a characters may generate "plot power" by failing rolls, and once they collect enough, they can become a centerpiece of the scene and take over GM's duty for a single scene)
