kaname08 beat me, so I'll go with Ouran Host Club.

They really should make some more, know that I think about it. Maybe it's just a supply and demand issue, but the amount of harem shows for (straight) guys is a bit larger than the ones for (straight) girls.

I've been liking Yona of the Dawn (Akatsuki no Yona) so far.

Haven't seen a whole lot of them though. Only other one I've seen a bit of is Neo-Angelique, but the main thing I hated about it, were the guys couldn't form a coherent though without Angie.

I know! Its pretty hard to find good reverse harems..
I love Ouran!
..Amnesia..not so much. Although the art work was really good on this one the story line was a little flat and the ending just upset me lol.
So after watching those two I've concluded A:Theres not that many RH..B:50/50 chance on what you find being good lol.
Does that really sum it up?

That one isn't a reverse harem. There is only romance between her and that main guy. The other guys have nothing to do with it, they've got their own stories. Still probably my favorite shoujo like that though, it was hilarious.

Not really my Genre, either, but perhaps La Corda d'Oro might be something to check out here. There's music and self-improvement themes in it.

I'd also agree that Yona, and Ouran mentioned above were worth the time I spent watching.

Ouran High School Host Club is pretty much the golden standard for reverse harem.

The favorites of my wife and I:
Ouran Host Club
Fruits Basket
The Wallflower

My wife really liked Uta no Prince-sama.

I'm currently enjoying Akatsuki no Yona and Bonjour Patisierre9sp?).

Being older, we both find some of the reverse harems creepy Because of underlying themes (stalking, incest, and rape). But, romance novels have these themes too.

Samurai Deeper Kyo is not a romance anime at all, but it does have a reverse harem sort of feel. One main girl with a bunch of warriors who end up gathered around her, most of them have feelings for her. The manga is better than the anime though, because the manga is all about fighting with actual weapons and in the anime most enemies end up transforming into monsters.

Second Yona of the Red Dawn, it's really good.

If you like music check out La Corda d'Oro. ^^

I always cringe when people say AMNESIA or Diabolik Lovers (unless you're into sadists with issues, abuse, a petty attempt at a psychological angle and an extremely submissive girl who doesn't even put up a fight).

Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket were top notch examples. Yona of the Dawn is going brilliantly and is providing a watch that isn't solely focused around some flailing maiden, but rather offers a decent story and character development.

I feel like reverse harems barely get any effort put into them. Typical harems/fanservice are as common as anything within anime yet you find so many with storylines that are worth sticking around for. Shows like the ones I mentioned first just don't cut it, in my opinion.

Some titles that struck a decent balance between throwing ikemen in my face and providing either a decent story or enjoyable watch include Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie, La Corda d'Oro, Uta no Prince-sama, Hana Yori Dango, Hakuouki and also Hiiro no Kakera isn't all too bad.
