I'm looking for a harem, romance, school life type of thing with a protagonist with balls.

Simple as that. A strong-minded, decisive protag, badass etc

Bonus points if there is a tsundere female lead and bonus bonus points if the protag can shut down the tsundere (i.e. if the tsundere attacks him he blocks and counter attacks etc etc)

Examples:

Rin from Shuffle - he chose a girl in the end. Yay!

Akatsuki from Hagure Yuusha - the guy sweats confidence, and can shut down violent tsunderes

Ken from Seitokai no Ichizon - he dreams to build the ultimate harem


Dont mention School Days >.<


Thanks

Well, how about this. My "luck" versus this thing's "curse". Wanna see what's stronger..? If I lose, then I'm just that much of a man anyways.

Not a harem (or school life), but Spice and Wolf fits the bill.

Male protag initially surprised by her aggressiveness, but starts making comebacks soon enough (which are particularly hilarious).

Yo momma is back in style! Seriously.

the main character of kimikiss pure rouge. he is not cliche-like but is a bit shy,though.At the end he is able to cofess to the girls he likes and... i don´t really remember much more i watched this anime like 4 years ago and i really liked it.i´m rewatching it again xD

the main character of amagami ss/amagami ss plus has some balls also, but the girls are just to stupid or easy in this anime and due to the omnibus format(24 chapters in total 4 for each girl) the development for each of them is really fast so that they fall in love really quickly.

i have seen almost all the harem animes from 2005 till now and they tend to be really childish or stupid something i really hate."serious" harem animes do almost not exist xD

I will watch spice and wolf, I got a few episodes through it, but now I want to pick it up again.

I've seen amigami, so I'll give Kimikiss a try.

He is a perv but if you haven't got through the whole thing you should try, he becomes fairly courageous

if i recall correct true tears was another harem anime to consider.The drama it had just left the childish part of this sort of animes apart.I made a 2-3 years pause of watching anime so i can´t explain many details but the anime is called true tears. the art is solid and at the end the main character ends up with a girl(unlike many romance animes where he just plays dumb the entire series xD)

Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai

He doesn't really shut down any of the tsunderes or pick anyone (though I heard there's a second season coming), but he's not an annoying weakling, that's for sure. He also tends to scare people because he looks like a delinquent

You heard there is a second season coming out??? It's already out, bro. It's like on episode 7 or 8 now. I know, because I'm watching it. And it's AWESOME. 'Nuff said. *C-walks outta here*

+1
the character in that anime is very cliche like and the girls that surround him treat him like shit.His house looks like an inn he lets every girl just stay at his house come on xD. i do not think that anime to be focused in romance, is more comedy/fantasy oriented. I watched the first season and hated it.I´m into much more serious animes now

Which part do you think shit in the manga?


I'll explain :D

The main is a pussy and has to get girls to help him the whole damn time. The he powers up by (i think) stealing the pink bitches power. The girls like him for no reason.

Lots of recs, I've read them all and I'm gonna watch/read any i havn't seen.

Don't worry about seconding recs, I like the variety.

On a different note:

Mondaji is a harem (in the way where he is surrounded by girls most of the time), but it isn't a romance. MC's pretty bad ass though.

The OVAs have the most breasts out of all the episodes. The episodes still have a decent amount of breasts and nudity but the characters and action are really good imo!

i´ll pass then. I´m not into ecchi animes i think that fanservice and ecchi just averts the story line and in this series the plot tends to be poor(at least in 90% from the ones i have watched).

The story is complete shit, the protag is typical self insert. The only reason it's so popular is so the people watching can fap to all the massive breasts.

I never really thought Horo as a tsundere. She's more like a best friend to Kraft at first who insults him for fun like friends do.

I think you might like Toradora!
The lead female is a tsundere and the male lead learns to deal with her, and it is such a good series!
Not really a harem, but there are love triangles.
*& it is a romance/school life

I've seen it, It's a good shown, plus it does have romance, though it's only a subplot

Oretama I am reading this now, thanks. Sounds fucking awesome :D

Well, it does not have much romance, and romance is definitely not the main point. However, it does have hints of romance. I recommended because it is a harem.

EDIT: Full metal panic is also good romance anime with a very good protagonist.

??????[spoiler] He never made any advances. It was always holo implying she liked him, getting jealous, etc.....Even in spice and wolf II when they had the big fight and holo was yelling at Lawrence, Holo was the one asking Lawrence what she meant to him. And I swear to god I wanted to punch him in the face so hard, she was literally putting herself right in front of him asking for a simple answer and all he could do was stand there and say nothing as she left him and his life possibly forever. That was some really weak resolve and I was really pissed that he could just stand there and do nothing as she left. What was so hard about telling her he loved her?

God!!! This anime needed a third season so bad! Why is it all the good anime don't get sequels![spoiler]

Is that really where it stops? Thank god I didn't watch it. Also I don't get it when people recommend me Kore wa Zombie desu Ka? I'm glad I'm not the only one that was annoyed by the girls treating him like crap.

Also you didn't spoiler tag properly. The second one needs a /spoiler not just spoiler
