Just want to say that I really enjoy this game. It's full of silly little things that make me chuckle. Make sure to invest in the turnip farm everyone!

It's clear that you aren't truly here to be reasonable, as you seem to take jabs at everyone at every chance you can get then claim they are at fault when they jab back. As for the games, Renryuu does offer choices in many areas but you keep denying that many of the acts started out as/still are terrible while tearing this game apart from less than 10 minutes of gameplay. If this game isn't for you just leave, as you haven't succeeded in changing anyone's minds on this game and may have caused harm for Renryuu Ascension's reputation for fans of this game. Some people find Alina's enjoyment unbelievable and/or reprehensible, some people find imprisoning Kurohime and molesting or raping her to loving you unbelievable and/or reprehensible. I won't be responding past this as it's likely you are only interested in insulting this game and it's fans while advertising a game that is full of just as dark moments optional and not.
I'm pretty sure you are forced to rape/torment Kurohime to recruit her to your cause for events later in the game, the others may be optional but if they end up in Ryen's rape dungeon it's likely part of the story that he forces himself on them. I'd rather that not be the case as the idea of a path where you don't rape them but find another solution to punish their misdeeds or convince them to side with you sounds right up my alley. Millaine does offer herself but it always felt more like she was picking the lesser of two evils as if her secret got out in the holy country then she would be ruined so she has sex with Ryen even though it seems like she doesn't want it, maybe I picked up the wrong signals but that's just what it felt like to me. I'm assuming Zady is the dark sorceress, if so she states that she doesn't want to have sex with Ryen or drink the potion but he forces her to drink it and waits until it drives her mad and consents which sounds a lot like drugging a woman. You say later there's a new love potion that reveals people's true feelings but that sounds like a fix to a questionable scene that uses a different potion entirely (I hope it's actually not the case as I do like the idea of seeing the sorceress again under more obvious consenting conditions). I also welcomed Aleah to my castle as she is such a gentle sweetheart that I couldn't imagine anyone locking her in a dungeon. As for calling me a hypocrite, I feel that is undeserved as I don't play games to be a jerk and seeing characters wiping up the mess afterwards was often from a vile npc raping a character that I wasn't allowed to stop until after the act, which usually resulted in me killing them even if there was an option to spare them (why would I spare a raping monster?) and choosing to follow a path of kinder choices and bonding with the girls in a similar way as I do when playing Renryuu Ascension. It feels like you are making similar arguments to what I am and then claiming I'm a jerk, as Ryen engages in plenty of similar acts as the character of this game just not as quickly and the main character of this game does earn their affection even if at first he enslaves some of them at first (sometimes to save them from some darker fate). I'm not saying you should feel bad for enjoying Renryuu Ascension as it is an incredible game, I'm just trying to point out it is just as full of dark acts just brought in a little later. I enjoy both games and if I feel like playing this game is fine, it's a game that gives you a choice in being a jerk or just coming off as a bit of a jerk while having a heart of gold. I also hope that both games see more obvious good paths as I have straight up quit many games after getting an hour in and finding nothing but rape and despair. And if you don't feel like giving this game another shot then that is entirely your choice as well, play what you want and have fun with it as all should be free to do! Within reason of course.
Just want to point out a few things, first the main character of Harem Collector can be an ass at times but so can Ryen from Renryuu Ascension. I'll admit the main character of Harem Collector isn't exactly the nicest in his treatment of Alina at first but they do develop a bond later on, as he does with all the girls. However too say that he's a rapist and Ryen isn't is a false statement as Ryen straight up rapes Kurohime, Irinlia, Moriko, and Lace while forcing himself on Millaine and the dark sorceress without it being fully stated as rape (There may be more non optional ones) along with tons of girls you can optionally send to the dungeons to be rape dolls (Aleah is one but she's too sweet to let that happen to her). Both main characters have their bad sides and their good sides but to straight up claim one is all bad while the other gets away with his bad isn't exactly fair. Second, Alina not bleeding during her first time is entirely possible as not all women do bleed their first time, this is just a common misconception. As for the being wet without foreplay, entirely possible as well, women's bodies are more complex than common belief has stated for many years. Wiping up the mess with her clothing is a jerk move but it's common in these kinds of games. Now I'm not trying to fight, I just wanted to point out that it isn't entirely fair to judge this game by one scene as much as you may have disliked it and clear up some misconceptions you were using. Both Harem Collector and Renryuu Ascension have main characters who are capable of being kind or evil people depending on how you play or view them, and I personally enjoy both games and try to play through as the nice guy since I find it to be more enjoyable.
