> Why manga keeps trying to show slavery, sexual slavery or the sexual submission of women in a good light?

Are we reading the same manga here? Chapter #25 has a flashback about a corrupt noble beating his slaves. Is that "manga trying to show slavery in a good light" to you?

Slavery were never in any light "good", they could be positive or beneficial to a society as a whole, but they were never good. Slaves were regarded as objects, they have little to no rights (not to be confused with serfs). Ancient slavery is the same, the only reason roman slaves were treated better was because of how advanced roman civil law regarding protection of property (and by extension, slaves, which are property) were and how crucial slavery was as a commodity for the roman empire, therefore need to be regulated heavily. Individual slave's treatment of course vary depends on the individual's master in question, though usually they would treat their slaves based on their skills and capacity to learn, but even the most treated of slaves are slaves regardless.

I don't really have an in-depth knowledge of roman slavery as it was just mentioned on an hour and lecture on roman property law but enough to get the gist of how shit it must have been for the slaves.

I don't know how money works in Japan, but humor me for a minute.

250,000 yen per month times 12 months equals 3,000,000 yen per year. As of now that equals about $27,403.35. Assuming a 40 hour work week, U.S. federal minimum wage earns you $15,080.00 per year. So he's basically earning just under twice American minimum wage. Bear in mind that the average American income is $63,179 per year. So he's earning less than half of the average American income for 24 hour full time labor and no days off, and he has to SAVE A FUCKING PLANET. This is bullshit. Talk about working for a black company, he's better off being a neet or flipping burgers at McDonald's.

When it comes to Isekai, a harem is a must.
- MC

I fucking wish most authors didn't think like that. Honestly I have seen it ruin so many that had a good premise.
I wish there were more without.

@fagguette101 I am not saying your numbers are wrong but each of the waifus he meets are unvaluable.

@Moonwolf287 this is the first harem manga where each girl has her own unique arc, motivations, development, life goals, etc. They don't become just part of a collection or numbers to increase. I honestly advice you to give it a try, its the first properly written harem I have read.

@moonwolf287 they shouldn't make all girls in isekai attractive then.

@Faryshta I know I'm still reading it because the plot is okay and the harem is decently handled compared to others.

@denmark0128 I would not mind. Not all characters that flock around the MC have to be attractive, this goes for both men and women. For fighter type characters a more toned body would make sense, mages and other less agile / fit characters could also be more plumb and/or old. Not everybody has to be attractive (in the sense to what is considered attractive by author / artist).
