Of all our four children, Annie has always seemed the easiest.

Happy-go-lucky, sports-mad, not in the least bit rebellious.

And those are the best new anime series you need to watch this winter. Let me know in the comments below and give me a yandere thumbs up while you’re there.

Manga readers have to understand some aspects of Japanese culture to get the references.

You have know how to read the overlapping images and text. Now add in Japanese sound words and words English lacks like Manga encourages a variety of skills, from image interpretation to the Japanese language, that reading traditional prose cannot do.

They are more aware than the general reader about cultural differences between countries.

With all that in mind, let’s look at how Japanese onomatopoeia work. Families group words together by what sounds they mimic.

Manga readers have better developed multidimensional thinking than traditional readers because of the complex cinematic language of the medium.

Manga readers are comfortable with seeing different languages and looking up the meanings of words.

Many protagonists can exist as long as they are given less attention or the story calls for an unusually obscure sex ratio. Because of different situations and plot devices in the story the protagonist normally end up discovering hidden aspects which make females and/or males within the "harem" more attractive while highlighting interesting aspects of their personalities, usually because of said protagonist's kindness, courage and the will to protect/support their friends or the world.

These protagonists usually end up with a harem accidentally, because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time due to some unforeseeable circumstance or random chance.

My gut feeling was to call the school, haul Annie out and interrogate her. I'm sure there are many parents reading this and leaping to judge our duplicitous actions. For starters every other word is interjected with 'ahaha' or 'pahaha' - a demonstration of laughter. In another text she asked a boy called Ben: 'Do you like me?

' I had just enough time to think: 'Well, that’s sweet,' before he pinged back: 'Yer, I'd do u.''Are you smoking and who are Ben, Jake and Tom? I stopped short of asking her if she was having sex - the very notion of it being a possibility was so horrendous I just couldn't form the words.

Most protagonists don’t even want the harems they start, as they mostly only have one main love interest and all other members of their harem simply fall in love with him or her because they deeply admire some part of their personality, and the protagonist can’t bring themselves to tell them to leave.
