Super cool! Kinda wish more harem authors explored this type of ending.

At the end of the bokuben anime, spoiler[ it was heavily implied that takemoto was going to be the girl that won in the end, even before the manga reached its conclusion. Now with the what if series explicitly detailing alternate endings for everyone except Uraka Takemoto, this is pretty much confirmed. ]

Happy for the what if stories, but not sure what to feel about the anime spoiling it for even the manga readers.

On one hand I have a liking towards Uraka, so learning that there was an arc that was center around her is neat and I kind of would like to read it, but on the other hand I was annoyed with the anime adaptation of We Never Learn because of it's sense of humor. Do you think it would be a good idea if I can skip to reading this arc, or do I have to read the whole series up to this point first?

There's really not much you're missing if you didn't find the one-off harem hijinks funny in the anime, so if you're curious you can just start reading at chapter 140 through 150 to get everything you need from her arc.

If you only care about Uruka then you can just from chapter 140 to chapter 150.

But I recommend starting from chapter 69 (where season 2 school festival arc ends). There are a fair amount of good stories that the anime will never adapt and why Sensei is the most popular.

I like the idea, I've always wanted an author to do this. I just hope he gives enough time to each route.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying but there is no true ending. The author said whichever ending you like is the true ending. That's why it said route 1/5 when this one ended.

This is why most harem anime/manga SHOULD have multiple endings for each heroines a la Amagami/KimiKiss manga/anime.

EDIT: If the male character gets all heroines as a harem ending, same goes for the reverse-harem (some of 'em are from fantasy/isekai anime/manga), that's great. No cop out as well.

Okay! Thanks you two! Smile This would be unprecedented of me to skip to a particular arc of a story instead of reading the whole thing, but I think I would attempt to do just that. However is this implying that We Never Learn gets better story-wise, Soulwarfare?

I think the latter option which the protagonist gets all the women/men is more fitting for the sub genre as it would be more align with the idea of a harem. As for the former, I think this idea world be best suited in the video game medium (particularly visual novels). With that said I can see a writer deciding to write multiple endings for his or her harem story. It would be like reading what if scenarios.

This kind of reminds me of Kimi No Iru Machi (A Town Where You Live) where the author did special one-shot chapters showing Haruto ending up with different Heroines and their subsequent sex life.

Since the Uruka arc was first, one could claim that it's the most canon, but I'm bummed that there's no Sekijou arc planned..... Sad
