I'm looking for some decent anime that have strong male leads. I've gotten really sick of all these anime where they are losers, or weak, or completely gutless around women.
I don't mind if it's harem or echhi, as long as the male lead isn't like in Highschool DxD, where all he does is fantasize about breasts, and then when he gets the chance at some, he turns into a huge pansy and runs away.
I've recently watched Trinity Seven, Blade Dance of the Elementers, and Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, so anything like those male characters that start out badass and end badass would be good.
Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis
Sword of the Stranger (movie)
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Fist of the North Star
Rokka Braves of the Six Flowers
Darker Than Black
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (2012) sorta counts. The main lead of part one gets badass very quickly and the leads of part 2 and 3 start off badass.
Hint if you don't want to watch beta main characters stop watching harem anime because there are about 4 good harem anime in existence. 99.5% of them are exactly what you described.
