I was wondering if there is any anime where the best friend is the main character. Like all the good stuff such as magic/power/girls goes to his friend, who is the "main character" but we follow his friend and the friend' thoughts instead of the one with the powers. Any series you can think of like this?

Well in Tears to Tiara I could swear that Arthur was the main character, but apparently it was Arawn.
Although it's not exactly a friend type of thing. Basically Arawn is like Obi-wan where Arthur is like Luke.
Arawn gets all the chicks though.

It's weird though because in the previous series Utawarerumono, Hakuoro and Oboro had the same kind of relationship, except it was very clear that Hakuoro was the main character (he was the mentor) and Oboro was just a secondary character... Hakuoro got all the chicks, Oboro got 2 little boys who looked like chicks, and yes he GOT them.

I never realized those two were traps. Crazy what you're oblivious to in your first couple anime.
