No one has mentioned Brother's Conflict as yet. It has a cute squirrel. I wouldn't call it the best though and it is awkward over the incest implications.

The Wallflower, Hakuouki, Ouran HS Host Club, Fruits Basket, Kamigami no Asobi....and Amnesia.
Although I like Yona of the Dawn, I don't really think its one of the best Reverse harems.
I still dislike Yona as a main character

It's quite sad how they make more Harems then Reverse Series I guess they think there's a larger male fan base who watches Harem :/ every season there's always at least 2-3 Harem Anime's, this winter season They have Absolute Duo, unlimited Fahr and Seiken Tsukai no World break -.- ..Oh like let's get the Male fan base hyped up while us Females only get Akatsuki no Yona :/ Don't get me wrong I absolutely love Yona but I wish they would've had at least another Reverse Harem this Season :(..

My list of Favorite Reverse Harem

Akatsuki no Yona (Currently watching & love)
Uta no Prince Sama (Currently watching) ( Hot Male Singers)
Hiiro no Kakera ( Hot Male Protagonist)
Brothers Conflict
Diabolik Lovers
Hanasakeru Seishounen
Saiunkoku Monogatari
Fushigi Yugi

These aren't really known but I highly recommend them ^~^
Haruka: Beyond the Stream of time
Neo Angelique Abyss
Beloved Angel Angelique
The Twelve Kingdoms
La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia

Only a few Reverse Harems we have but I lost count on how many Harems are there for guys -.-

I've only seen literally a few but I've always enjoyed The Wallflower.

Personally, I think harems and reverse harems suck, but shows like Ouran Host Club were good for their comedy.

Triangles are great and I think a "reverse" triangle is easily the best romantic concept because they usually do a good job of portraying the competition between two men and their emotions surrounding their avoidance or acceptance of that competition.

Although if they'd just write women properly, their competition would be just as interesting. Maybe they are written properly as Japanese women, what do I know.

I've seen maybe less than a dozen over the years of watching anime, there is a serious shortage of reverse harems, especially when compared to harems.

I remember liking Ouran Host Club, Fruits Basket, The Wallflower, and La Corda D'Oro several years ago but can't say I'll like them now if I rewatch. The others, I either couldn't stand the characters or couldn't get into the stories and didn't finish. Most of them have spineless main female characters and no substance whatsoever. I thought I could like Uta Prince as much as I liked La Corda D'Oro, but I just can't. Maybe I've changed. T.T

Akatsuki no Yona has a headstrong female main, which is a welcomed change. But I just can't find anything else good about her character, or the story. Also, some small details like her ugly earrings irk me somehow. >.>
Ancient Chinese attire is gorgeous but the ancient China inspired aesthetics in this anime just doesn't look right.

That anime is a true masterpiece but it isn't a reverse harem, sadly.

I do really love Ouran. Like that is just gold and Fruits Basket is just a series I've loved for a while but like others? They aren't amazing like these two are. I did like Brothers Conflict though. It was more of a fun watch and really I never actually considered it incest because at an older age and just meeting them... they don't feel like siblings.

Though I think Yona of the Dawn is definitely going to be on the top though.

I really liked Kamigami no Asobi, which is about different gods being taught about humanity. Of course OHSHC and Fruits Basket you should watch first, cause they're classics. Kamisama Kiss is soon to be one too, so watch that one expecially if you like Fruits Basket. Diabolik Lovers is eh, I've been having a lot of toruble getting into it. Amnesia was really on the fence, because the art was superb but most of the rest of it sucked. Uta no Prince-Sama though is definitely one to watch. I've only read it, but Alice in the Country of Hearts/Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was awesome.

Well I'm going to jump on the Yona boat here, that said, I don't think I've seen any other reverse harems yet. Some of the stuff that has been mentioned so far is pretty high on my to-watch list though.

I didn't know this existed, I'm going to have to look into it, I've always been a huge fan of the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and some of the associated stuff.

Yeah! I started reading it and after the first three, you can choose your ending by which book you read, and they do have multiple volumes per a character. I'm pretty sure all of it was adapted from a game (maybe the other way around?) which I haven't looked into personally, but would like to.

Ouran Highschool Host Club and Fruits Basket for me! Loved them both, can't pick a favourite between those two.

i'm a huge Heart no Kuni no Alice fan, sadly there is only an animated movie. but the franchise is pretty big, i own 20+ volumes of its manga and tons of bromides & other merchandise. i really want it to be made into a full anime grr >.> and for the games to be made into English (aside from that poorly translated app that takes up way too much room heh)

akatsuki no yona was really good, the guys in it are wonderful

la corda d'oro wasn't bad, at least it was a pretty one to listen to

From a quick google search I found out that it was based on a game and that (officially) the only english port is for the first game on mobile devices, But I'll definately be looking into the manga, it looks pretty interesting.

Unrelatedly, can I count Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE! as a reverse harem (MC being Yumoto)? sure the MC isn't female but all the members are Male. Close enough right?
