    Webcomic Title: "Zachary and the Cosmic Princesses"

    Genre: Space Fantasy, like Star Wars

    Would anyone love to talk about this with me, please?

    Essentially, my thing is meant to be like "Monster Musume meets Guardians of the Galaxy", in terms of Harem Manga, Alien Princesses and Space Fantasy. My Setting for now is fictionalized version of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is home to over 70,000 Alien Races, including Humanity. However, Aliens mistakenly think Humans are Mythical Beings, akin to Fairies or Goblins. Space Feudalism is a thing with my Setting, Kings, Queens, Princes, Princesses, etc. They're connected to each other by a Network of FTL Gateways, which these Aliens use for Travel. This is meant to be a very Moebius-style Space Fantasy Universe, with Biotech Elements, along with Vintage Science Fiction Elements. The Aliens themselves often resemble Mythical Beings too, such as Mermaids or Trolls for example, as well as Anthropomorphic Beings in general. Visually speaking, like "Overwatch meets Numenera", because of Colorfulness and some Baroque Vibes too. What are your general thoughts on this topic?

    It's fine but like, what's the hook? This doesn't sound that different from any other sci-fantasy setting.

    Maybe. You got a story in mind concerning Zach and his mysterious Princess of the Cosmo's?

    Ok, so you mentioned overwatch. Maybe you can have some kind of benevolent military regime running the galaxy with kings and queens as figure heads? Maybe the monarch’s knights are the ones with the actual power in the setting.
    And then we can spend some time fleshing out the lawless outskirts of this setting and all the ne’er-do-wells that live there to bring-in the Guardians inspiration?

    I think the best way to make a good harem story is not to make the main man a loser. If you want to make a loser mc at least make him a likeable person.
    Another thing that kills harem stories is the first girl wins trope.
