The glory of Hare Kon is showing the readers what a woman’s point of view is in a polygamous relationship.

It is an intriguing manga for the harem genre since it was made by a female mangaka. It goes against all the genericness of all the harem type anime/manga, although the fan service is still there, the series shows how hard it is to actually have a polygamous harem relationship for a woman.

A downside of Hare-Kon. are some dragging storylines. Where some actions somewhat show hypocritical inconsistencies to a certain character’s action, in which it goes against their personality. Although maybe, it just shows in reality how a female given with enough love will succumb to any male’s charms – a woman’s frailty.

Even though it’s a seinen, the art style resembles the art style of a shoujo type of manga. Overall the scenes are completely detailed and the characters are beautifully drawn, but it falls short story wise.
