Was going through the loads of anime that I've watched that had harems and I realized that most of this character tend to be goody two shoes and tend to get scared quite a lot.

With that said, there are some deviations or variations from this character archetype that Harems use.

So for a simple discussion, I would like to know your favourite Harem MC's and why they are, give people a reason to go into the show knowing that the MC is likable.

Inb4 Campione.

But yeah the protag is fully aware of the situation he is in and doesn't either run and hide nor abuse the situation cause he actually cares for the girls feelings.

Issei from DxD is in a similar boat (at least in the novels) but in more of a chivalrous pervert kinda way.

Keima from The World God only Knows since he's literally a "Capturing God". He's also really smart and a nice guy.

My favorites:
Kusunagi Godou from Campione - He has a harem and everyone is ok with it.
Tomoki Sakuri from Heaven's Lost Property - He wants a harem and does not realize he has one.
Shido from Date-A-Live - Has reluctantly built a harem. But, he did it for the harem memvers' own good.
Issei from High School DxD - Truly loves and cherishes his harem members.
Ayumu from Is This a Zombie? - I can't help it. A zombie in a dress has a harem.

tomoki^ cus he has a harem and knows how to use it.

this dude, cus he actually behaves like a man would when surounded by sexy deamons.

this girl, cus she puts up with no one crap.


and most of all, this chick, for the sheer ammount of courage she needs to deal with life and the more terrifying aspects of her harem.

Aside from the ones that have been mentioned (Issei, Keima, Godou, Tohru, and Haruhi) here's some more I find to be good:

Negi Springfield (Negima) - The harem angle may have been dropped later on, but that kid can kick some ass.

Keitaro Urashima (Love Hina) - Sure, he gets beat up all the time, but he made a good unlucky schlub who has goals and strives for them.

Yu Narukami (Persona 4) - That dude had wit, style and a nice collection of Personas.

Sadao Maou (Devil is a Part-Timer) - Amazing leader who isn't above breaking a few faces to help his friends.

Here are my top three:

3. Arararagi from Monogatari
Very fun and likeable protagonist. He may have his weird preferences and fetishes but at the end of the day he's a genuinely nice guy who cares about his friends and most of all is actually comitted. Well, nobody in theri right mind would try to screw with Senjougahara, but still, he's obviously very caring while still remaining a fun outgoing character.

2. Katsuragi Keima from TWGOK
A very unique character for a Harem protagonist. He might not have the kind of compassion other characters have (not quite yet at least) but he is a very smart and engaging character who is just loads of fun every single moment he's on screen. What else can you say? He is the god of Harems after all.

1. Sugisaki Ken from Seitokai no Ichizon
He is pretty much the blueprint every Harem protagonist should follow to at least some extent. He has a legitimate reason for getting a Harem since he thinks this is the best way to make the people he cares about happy. Such a nice guy who still manages to be a hilarious character nonetheless. Probably the most likeable Harem character ever and therefore my favourite.

Shin'ichi Kano from "Outbreak Company"

Eita Kido from "Oreshura"

Kyosuke Kosaka from "Oreimo" ( I know i'm going to get flamed for this one, but the guy has balls to come out with his feelings. He explains the situation to the others. He doesn't go all the way Kirino.)

Yuki Aito from "Mangaka-san to Ashisutanto-san to"

Kintaro Oe from "Golden Boy" (ova)

Koyomi Araragi from the "Monogatari" series

Mahiro Yasaka from "Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos"(I'm kind of on the fence at times about him, but I understand why he feels the way he does at times. So, I guess I will let some of his behavior slide given the situation.)

These aren't in any particular order, but if I had to pick one MC, then Kintaro would be my choice.

Hopefully in the new Grisaia no Kajitsu anime, they keep Kazami Yuuji the same as he was in the VN. Seriously, he's so awesome, and will probably be my favorite MC if they do it right.

I've never thought of Fruits Basket as a reverse harem haha. It's more of a love triangle, where it's obvious who she is getting with.
