Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Both Clannad and Mashiro-Iro Symphony are similar in terms of how the protagonist builds his relationships with the various women around him.
Clannad and mashiro! Almost all the girls in the harem are in love with the male lead. but as the story goes they realize he is in love with someone else. really sweet romance between the 2 leads. and its definetely worth to watch these 2 animes!! recommend clannad as a first watch though :) would have given it 10 stars if i could :)
Aside from being harem anime based off a visual novel, the protagonists have siblings who suddenly transfer to a new school with him. As the plot develops, dramatic love triangles form in a very similar way. If you found this at least somewhat interesting, watch the other.
Both these animes is about a boy going to a new school and meet new friends (most part of them are girls) and eventually fall in love. both are really great animes
Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?
It isn't every day that a harem anime has a protagonists who is not either: a pansy, an idiot, or a jackass. Shuffle and Mashiro-Iro Symphony are rare exceptions.
Well, beyond the "Harem" part, he have something singular here: the protagonist ends up with one of the less expected female characters, instead of the obvious choice (or even, second obvious choice).
Aside from being harem anime based off a visual novel, the story begins with a protagonist transferring to a new school. Eventually, he joins a club that acts as the center point where he will establish or build on his friendships, with the females in particular. The main heroines hold this club very dear to their hearts, and with the assistance of the selfless protagonist, their collaborative actions in the club better the lives of living beings. Romance also blossoms while working together.
