No Harem, UNLESS, unless the MC actually get a girl in the end not all of them fighting over him while he just blushes as they throw themselves at him.

and no Slash or reverse harem, one guy and maybe a few of his pervy friends, I visualize myself as the MC or if its a Shoujo then as the main Male, I don't want to see a bunch of guys throwing themselves at one girl.

I compiled this list by going through my watched anime list and selecting romance/comedy series that are not harems. As well as ones that are at least marginally slice of life (like the ones you listed) as opposed to robot girls and stuff.

B Gata H Kei
Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai
Engaged to the Unidentified
Isshuukan Friends
Kare Kano
Kotoura-san
Lovely Complex
Mysterious Girlfriend X
My Little Monster
My Love Story!
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu
Sakura Trick (if you like Yuri)
The Pet Girl of Sakurasou
Disappearance of Nagato Yuki Chan
Wolf Girl and Black Prince
Your Lie in April

Balzack's got a good list there, and I can second a lot of the stuff on it. I'm reading through the Kare Kano manga right now myself.

I'll also add:

Toradora!
Honey and Clover
Kokoro Connect
Nagi no Asukara
Hyouka
Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
OreImo (if you don't mind the whole incest thing)
Plastic Memories
Working!!

Some of them aren't chiefly about the romance, (eg, Kokoro Connect is a drama and Working!! is a comedy), but it does feature heavily in all of them.

My top recommendation is The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, though.

Edit: Also, these manga. Some of them have been adapted, but as I haven't seen the anime, I can't be sure if the adaptations are any good; hopefully others will be able to chime in about that.

Koe no Katachi
Chikan Otoko/Molester Man
Solanin
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
Can't See Can't Hear but Love
Hajimari no Niina
Orange (Which I've heard has an adaptation in the works now.)
Bonnouji
Mahoraba
Nozoki Ana
Taiyou no Ie

I don't really watch anime as much as I used to, but I read manga a lot.

The only one I can think of for anime is Bokura Ga Ita.

You are quite particular. That's good. It means you know what you want. In the meantime, what do you do to feed your anime addiction if you can't find an anime that you want?

I am really enjoying "Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu" I must commend you for the great recommendation, Haruka's little sister is so evil when it comes to Yuuta and Haruka, I must say great show so far.

@DeadlyOats, I tend to go back and re-watch anime I've seen in the past, though it tends to be stuff i grew up on like Ruruin Kenshin and Dragonball. Dragonball Z, Yuyu Hakusho, etc. But I've got to a point where even those are getting boring/annoying. I feel as though my mind is and heart have matured past childish things like super fights that pan out on a global/universal scale, granted Hunter x Hunter will always be one i can re-watch no matter what.

Aside from that i tend to try and quell my appetite with anything and everything i can find of interest. The anime i listed "Clannad, Kimi no Todoke, etc" I found purely on accident while i fumbled through the darkness of "Shoujo, Romance, Slice of Life".

Make sure to track down the "Finale" OVAs of Nokizaka Haruka no Himitsu; they finish off the story nicely.

Lots of good ones mentioned. Toradora and My Love Story in particular are awesome. Some other ones that haven't been mentioned in the lists above:

Say "I Love You" (similar set-up as Kimi ni Todoke, but a bit more mature, and the plot moves much faster)
Kanon (2006) (made by the same folks as Clannad)
SA: Special A
Amagami SS/SS+ (this has short story arcs where the guy gets one girl, then the world resets around a different heroine)
The World Is Still Beautiful
Maria the Virgin Witch
Otome Youkai Zakuro
Please Teacher (and if you like that, try Please Twins)
Ai Yori Aoshi (harem used to cover up a secret relationship between the two protagonists)
Snow White with Red Hair
Aishiteruze Baby (romance slow to develop, but satisfying once it does)
Kimikiss: Pure Rouge

I've seen Ai Yori Aoshi, tbh I was a bit irritated by it, the harem part was really not needed in my opinion, so I was unable to continue watching it, I felt as though it had so much more potential but instead it took a route I as a viewer/reader do not care for, when I was younger I didn't mind the harem tag, but as my mind had matured I find the harem tag as a nuisance and should not end the way they do, unfulfilling and left with a bad taste, but again I cannot be bias with that either as I have seen some really good harem like "My sister is among them" one of my favorite because Konoe is my waifu.

so with what I've been given as I didnt really remeber most of the names of the anime I have watched I should reupdate the list as most of you have helped jog my forgetful mind.

B Gata H Kei
Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai

Well I've seen most of what other people have suggested as well. So while continuing to use my metrics of avoiding harems non humans/magic this is pretty much all I have left.

The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun (more a comedy than anything)
Hana Saku Iroha (more a slice of life than romance)
Marmalade Boy (if you can stand super dated tropes and 90's melodrama)
Sora no Manimani
Tamako Market
