Reverse Harem Anime

Does anyone know of any reverse harem anime? It's when there is one girl surrounded by a bunch of guys, the opposite of harem. I tend to find them really funny and a lot less offensive than the stupid, stereotypical girls that are always trying to get the loser guy in harem animes. I've heard of pretear, Fushigi Yuugi, and Ouran High School Host Club, but are there any others?

i guess Bleach kinda half fills that description. Other than that, there's also Hanna Yori No Dango (or Meteor Garden as the Chinese knows it as). There's also that new version of Fushigi Yuugi : Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Hachiyosho. It's almost exactly like Fushigi Yuugi. And there's also that really new one called Yamanade or something about a really ugly girl living with a bunch of really gorgeous guys. There are more manga ones. There's Secretly In Love With You - about a girl going to a boy's school in disguise. There's also another that i can't remember the name of where a girl works in the guys' dormitory coz she wants to play volleyball. And then there's another one where the girl pretends to be a guy and lives in the guys' dorm in a co-ed school coz her dad wants her to join the boy's basketball team. There are actually quite a few of them if you really try looking it up. I actually like these ones a lot better than seeing one guy getting surrounded by girls. most of the time i just feel so sorry for him.

Hana Kimi is GREAT!!!! Although it is only a manga, a Hana Kimi show was made in Taiwan, I do believe, and I also enjoyed that very much, although I still prefer the manga. I believe you can find the show on youtube, as long as it is still posted.

Yeah.. I only know few Reverse Harem titles.. Ouran HSHC, Fushigi Yuugi and Fruits Basket. I agree that RH titles are less ecchi than Harem titles.

All my answers have been given already - I'm just posting to say I entirely agree with you.^^ Reverse Harem is much cooler - though there're also male stereotypes that are always trying to get the girl. Reverse Harem tends to be more shoujo - and more charming. \m/^_^ My all-time fave RH is Furuba. Nothing beats Furuba.^^

Ouran Koukou Host Club and Fruits Basket are the only ones that I have actually watched and LOVED that would fit the description of a reverse harem. I recommend them both, naturally. They rock!

I think one of them is Furuba or Fruits Basket. It's also one of my favorite anime of all time!! Reading Furuba's manga is even better as it shows full emotion of each character, unlike the anime.
