Attack on Titan xd Eren would have died ages ago without Mikasa.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

I don't recall if the guy was the main focus in the story but Maria the Virgin Witch (Junketsu no Maria) has something similar to that (with a strong female MC).

Perhaps try Kara no Kyoukai (Garden of Sinners) as well.

Sumomomo Momomo, the name is weird but mc is protected by girl because some assassins want to kill him. And then two other girls join the protecting stuff.

It's a quite popular concept for the older battle harems. The kind with an ordinary guy who gets a bunch of powerful supernatural girlfriends who fight for him.
Like Omamori Himari. Or first season of Shakugan no Shana (the guy gets more powerful in later seasons).

Also, in magical girl shows the men involved in the story are likely to be people to be protected. For example, the MC's father in Soushin Shoujo Matoi.

Also, I would like to mention Spice and Wolf, which doesn't fall into any pattern, but when things get really bad, it's Horo who is a giant scary wolf.

Denpa-teki na kanojo is also like that.

Seirei no Moribito is the first one to come to mind that has a clear 'protector' dynamic with a female taking that role.

Most of the stuff mentioned here doesn't really have that clear-cut protector dynamic imo but just strong females in general. For example, I don't see Rock as being protected by Revy, at all except maybe situationally, but it's not their dynamic. But well.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

There's a bunch out there; just find a series that involves many characters with combat ability (e.g. fantasy setting, or sci-fi settings involving gunplay or mechs or other technology, or combat academy setting) and a mixed-gender cast of protags (or even a harem), and have the characters as a group face a strong enemy.

Off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure that happens multiple times in Absolute Duo, Black Bullet, Asterisk War, and others.

I was thinking, and I didn't have to do so very long. My favorite anime Clannad even has that. Tomoyo beats up entire gangs to protect "some delinquent" she likes. Mostly Tsunderes are types that do that stuff and I believe that is the entire idea of a Yandere, to protect a male MC.

Revy from Black Lagoon is sort of protective of the male MC, not from the beginning but eventually she does. Witch Craft works is another, Alderamin in the Sky where Yatori is overall protective but does look out for the Male MC. Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, if I remember correctly the girl is sort of protective of a Male MC. Moribito, is about an older lady who is protective of a young male boy.

btw Love Com is one of the few romance shows that I like, next to chuunibyo of course

I'm a bit surprised that you didn't recommend Revy from BL as she becomes pretty protective of Rock.

LMFAO yeah I'm just kicking myself in the nuts with that one. Revy's real MVP though. Pretty sure the second Dutch saw Ginji slice a bullet the last thing he'd do would be to try and start a fight witg him.

lol all good. I don't remember dutch seeing Genji slice a bullet did he? If I remember the first time Genji did was during the pool fight scene, and then again when he fights Revy for real. I really liked when Rock got himself captured and Revy doops Shenhua and Leigharch to go back and rescue him. Damn might have to rewatch some BL again this weekend :p

Claymore and Black Lagoon come to mind. Mirai Nikki and Attack on Titan aren’t as recent to me but I think those shows have that element in them too. More so with Mirai Nikki.

Lol my bad, meant to add an if in there as a hypithetical situation. Like Dutch would scream get in the car Benny or something like he usually does. And man, when Shenhua casually just drops that Leigharch is stuck at a mental hospital I couldn't stop laughing.

Probably gonna do a rewatch too for that matter. Black Lagoon is the best isekai. It takes the average japanese businessman, and takes him into the fictional world of A Team, John Woo, Peckinpah and Tarantino films.

ok I was thinking you were going with hypotheticals. Bruh I've watched both sub and dub and honestly I feel like the Dub is better. dub bias-ness asided I would recommend watching the dub at least once. The banter with Shenhua and Revy is just amazing. they really can get into verbal little cat fights lol

You're the first person who has said that BL has some Isekai, but that does kind of make sense. wow that honestly's a pretty good analogy or whatever.

I think that's why I love BL soo much. I love how the show comes off as a mashup of john woo and tarantino films. I also love all the little nods to other action and pop culture movies and shows, so things like Terminator, Law and order, even 80s B movies such as Ms. 45 who Eda is apparently loosely based off of. definitely a show I can go back to every so often and regularly enjoy.

Yeah I've only seen it dubbed hahaha. Dub was so good that I tried watching one episode subbed and I just immediately switched back over. Haven't even seen the omakes yet because of how iconic the dubs were. Didn't know the Ms.45 reference for Eda but apparently Hiroe got Revy's tattoo inspiration from Seth Gecko (George Clooney) from Dusk Til Dawn.
Seriously Rei Hiroe is awesome

Good man! most people watch subs, which is fine, but when I come across people who enjoy BL about as much as I do I have to recommend the dub. pretty much all the VAs did an amazing job imo. Yea Ms. 45 is a B 80s movie. I watched it and it's pretty good for an old movie, but apparently Eda's nun get up is loosely based of the main girl in that movie. I suggest giving it a watch if you're into either 80s movies, or B movies lol

I did not now that's what her tattoo was from. awesome man damn. I learn more and from that show it seems. Rei did an amazing job. I think i've seen that he wrote a bit more volumes of BL or want's to or something? I'm still waiting to buy them if he has. i'd be open for a new OVA, Movie, or even season as long as keeps what makes that show so awesome. I also see you watched Golgo 13, another great show I liked. it felt like a james bond-ish kind of bad ass agent show. togo is one bad ass for sure.

In Kyoukai no Kanata the girl is the primary MC. In everything else the guy is.
