So, Lamu, the alien princess, follows him around like a love sick puppy always getting in the way of his desperate need to plant his seed and propagate. One of the main director's for the series was Mamoru Oshii, best known for his work on the Patlabor series and the original Ghost in the Shell movie.

Ranma 1/2 - one of the original gender-bending harem shows...actually it is still one of the only gender-bending harem shows ever. Great comedy, good action, strange romance abound in this classic series that helped to pave the way for the Anime explosion in America. The main character, Ranma, and his multiple "brides" must battle crazed demons, perverted teachers, ectentric Amazonians, and much much more in order to try and create any semblance of normality in his life. Did I forget to mention that he turns into a girl when he is hit with hot water, that is somewhat important . This was the main inspiration for the beloved harem manga Love Hina, but without the wussy lead character.
Thought I did...

Or should I have provided a discription as well?

Even though School Days fits your description clearly, it's probably not something you're looking for, because people usually watch School Days for a different reason...

If you're looking for a good harem anime w/o a wussy lead you might like;

Clannad: This goes for Kanon 2006 and AIR, they're all great harem anime with a great lead, and a great, romantic story along with many funny, mysterious characters... The 'anime' does NOT contain any ecchi or hentai. Except a few scenes which might be as a joke.

Shuffle!: This show is fantasy and harem, and if you like fan service but not full-on hentai you will like this anime... This anime's lead is not a pervert nor a wuss, and this anime has many 'dark' sides to it... But it's not bloody or anything.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: This is the best anime ever.

I watched it for the lols. It IS pretty funny, you have to admit.

As for actual suggestions... I'd say it's UNpossible, since every lead (ok, maybe Nodame Cantabile guy), is pretty much similar to every other. Okay, gross generalization, but you will generaly have to go through tens of similar leads to get one special, and even then 2 times out of four you won't like him.

Not really. There's Nayuki in a bra, but that's it, unless you count Haruko as fanservice.

Not bloody? Did you see the last episode?
haha, but yeah, you'll probably like it because it has fanservice and such.

Zero no Tsukaima. Saito gets mistreated a lot, but he's got a mouth on him and is an awesome swordfighter. He does have a dirty mind, though, but it more often than not passes off as comedy. It's a great series, and has good drama in the second season, as well.

Clannad is a harem anime only in the loosest of terms. Tomoya has a bunch of girls around him, but I wouldn't say they're pining after him like most harem anime. It's more like a mild interest (at first --- their interest gets a bit more serious further into the series). This anime is still ongoing.

Tenchi Muyo! is good. Tenchi is not a pushover, at least not to the extent of the pathetic wimps most harem anime have.

Ai Yori Aoshi. The main character Kaoru has a bit of a hard past, but he's not weak. A bit shut-in at first, but he opens up. A sweet harem anime (kind of a pseudo-harem, not a true harem as some would classify, like Clannad).

Ugh... Saito... He's probably one of the characters I have the most mixed feelings about in all of anime... About every episode that he manages to earn a bit of my respect, he immediately lose it like 5 minutes later (the last 4 minutes of season 2 finale anyone?) I wouldn't call him a wuss, but he doesn't strike me as a spectacular male lead either.

Yes I have seen every episode, and I wouldn't consider it 'bloody'... Just emotional and dramatic. Either way if you explain the anime overall you would not call it a bloody anime. It's different to School Days, it's not a 'bloody' anime.

im going to go with shuffle.. but if you like oranges i suggest you stay away from this one .. nonetheless tsuchimi rin is not a wuss at all.. he is a bit disinterested, but hes pretty cool generally - hes a not so funny version of okazaki from clannad

I have seen shuffle
so yea, but you all have nice suggestions
and i havent found one to fit my taste
but like you all say its hard to find a harem without a wuss lead
so to make it easier they can be a little wussy or perverted

You can also try manga, although still tricky.

We have a whole forum where people are currently discussing unlicensed, fantranslated manga. I would assume it's okay to bring it up here.
