    Hello there,
    Most of us know at least one harem anime where a male protagonist is a clumsy, extremely shy, closed and sometimes even rude specimen who does not know how to handle other people, especially women who for some unknown for humanity reason like him. To be honest, I haven't found any that kind of anime with a good male protagonist (I tried finally KonoSuba recently, but the male protagonist is awful). Well, I am tired of these protagonists and I am looking for an anime which has all both comedy, some slight romance, good plot AND a male protagonist who is actually good and knows how to handle females and people in general.
    Thank you for your help.

    So here are a few that may possibly fit what you are looking for...

    -Love, Election and Chocolate
    -Armed Girl's Machiavellism
    -Gate (on the borderline of your request)
    -Vandread
    -Toradora
    -Oda Nobuna (Male is more strategist than a fighter)

    I am sure there are several others but hope this gets you to a good start!

    Seconding Trinity Seven, that was the first thought that came to mind.

    Also maybe Henneko? Protagonist is perverted but it's done in a good way and he's not an ass.

    Allright, I have glanced at those suggestions and I have added most of them to my ''want to watch'' list. I am especially intrigued by Oda Nobuna since as mentioned a male protagonist is more a strategist than a fighter which matches my personality type, that can be interesting.

    Many thanks again for those suggestions - ofc if someone has more and is wishing to share, I will be grateful.

    I second Toradora. Really good male protagonist here. Not sure if this is a typical harem, but it does have those elements and the male lead is great.

    I'll also throw in Ranma 1/2. The male lead isn't perfect, but he's definitely not the usual wimp you often see in these shows, so this one might be your cup of tea. Note that it's pretty long though, and falls off somewhere unfortunately. The early episodes are strong enough to give this one a try anyway in my eyes.

    Personally harem anime with the best protaganist is probably Nisekoi. I found him to be quite likeable and the anime does not dilute the harem aspect to achieve this

    Trinity Seven - Funny and the male protagonist is perverted, while not being extremely annoying.
    Maken-ki - A accidental pervert. Basically just it.

    no Blade Dance

    Honestly is my favorite one. Est is best

    Also bakemonogatari doesnt necessarily count, but its solid.
