Ok, I'm looking for two types of anime.

First:
A harem/romance/school life anime with a decent main (guy) character. I know it is hard to find harem anime with cool main characters, so I'll draw the line at decent. What I mean is that I don't want a young/perverted/nose-bleeding character, I want a guy who kinda knows what he's doing. I hate to mention this but a character almost like Makoto from School Days, he was a dic k but he knew what he was doing. I don't wan't a character who cheats though... plus I don't really like dramas, unless they're especially good.
Oh, and no reverse harem like Ouran Host Club. (tbh, that's an exception since it's hilarious)

Second:
A plain romance/school life anime with a COOL main character. Like Keima from The World God Only Knows or Usui from Maid-sama. Again, the guy has got to kinda know what he's doing.

Some of the obvious ones I've seen:

-The World God Only Knows
-Maid-sama
-Infinite Stratos
-Shuffle
-School Days
-Special A
-Ouran Host Club
-Vampire Knight
-Campione (check this out if you haven't seen it!!)
-Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate
-Buso Renkiin (i guess it kinda falls under school romance :/ )
-Mayo Chiki
-Nodame Cantibelle
-Da Capo

Thanks!

P.s.
Please don't be one of those tards that trys to fit every genre into the Big Three (or Full Metal Alchemist)

Michishio Nagasumi from Seto no Hanayome

No, seriously. I went on to a forum looking for romance anime and someone put Naruto. It's like, ok if you've only watched those, but come on!

Anyway, thanks for the anime, I haven't seen Nagasarete Irantou :)

Fair enough. Btw, The lead in Mayo Chiki is decent apart from his allergy, so thats why I put him there.

Good male lead... And you say school days? Derp... I am dissapoint.

Away from the bad jokes:
I guess Clannad goes in this? But there's no "big" harem in it.
Sekirei i would go too, but there's no school life.
Hm... Rosario+Vampire? It have everything you ask for + one hell of a nice stalker main :3

Edit: Both rosario and Sekire contains the famous anime nosebleed. Also the main guys are weak in the start, but it will change through the story.
Also: Sekirei is an ecchi/action anime, but worth a watch anyways :P

I didn't say Makoto was a good lead, he's a dick... lol, but I gave him as an example of an anime character that CAN actually get girls, unlike some male harem leads that seem so allergic to girls, sometimes I think I might accidentally be watching a yaoi (boys love)

Next time if you want recommendations we have a recommendation section all to itself if you scroll down in the forum page.
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?board=16

I suggest Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. Hailed as one of the best harem in the industry. Main character is no wuss.

2nd that rec for harem aspect, as well as Ai Yori Aoshi as both's MC are pretty decent.


As for plain romance with decent male characters, try any of the following:

Cross Game
Higashi no Eden(doesn't have a school setting, but does provide cast of students)
Lovely Complex
Midori no Hibi
Shakugan no Shana
Seto no Hanayome
Touch(if you don't mind old school)

Sora no Otoshimono is the funniest Harem I've ever watched. Flying panties FTW! It has some School Life in it as well. WATCH IT!!!


Sora no Otoshimono

For the first rec:

Baka to Test
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (not exactly a harem but there are two girls going for the main dude, you don't need to watch the main series to understand this)

Kind of off topic, but I just wanted to say that I agree. Campione! is definitely one of the better harems out there.

As far as the recommendation... I would say Sekirei. The main character definitely isn't a pussy and he's not really perverted either. There is a lot of action too.
