Romance Anime(Non Shoujo)

I just finished watching some episodes of zero no tsukaima but I didn't like it. The one's I've liked are more along the lines of shuffle, ef - a tale of memories and especially anime like kanokon. I like good romance anime for guys where the girl or girls indulge the guy or at least don't have him getting hit constantly or ordered around. I prefer if the story is from the male lead's point of view. I don't care much for shoujo ones and especially don't like the ones where the guys are of the "pretty" type. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'v seen
Onegai Teacher
REC
Kanokon
EF - A Tale of Memories
Vandread
Rosario+Vampire
Ah! My Goddess
Hand Maid May
Midori's Days
Kiss X Sis
Aki Sora (any anime like aki sora would probably be considered indulgent)
Kanon
Myself Yourself
Chaos Head

Well if you've liked Kanon then it's only natural to recommend Clannad.

I'd recommend checking out Kimikiss ~pure rouge~. Sounds like you'd quite enjoy it.

Eureka 7, the best mecha romance ever.

Its manga is considered a shounen, so I guess it is.

I second this. Just hope the OP is in the mood for a 50 episode epic that isn't just romance focused, though the development between the two main characters is seriously one of a kind.

I saw clannad and it was kinda good. What I originally was looking for was an anime exactly like kanokon or at least close to it where the guy is indulged a lot instead of getting hit/ordered around a lot.

So basically a strong male lead eh

Animes with its main focus on romance
Clannad - seconded
Lamune
True Tears - starts out kind of wimpy, but grows
Gift ~ Eternal Rainbow
Toradora!
AIR

Not as it's main focus, but animes that have good romances nonetheless
Macross Frontier - well the lead char is 'pretty' but is not shoujo-ish at all
To Aru Majitsu no Index
Full Metal Panic!
Shakugan no Shana - the main char becomes pretty badass as time goes on
Gurren Lagann
Martian Successor Nadesico
Gundam SEED
Crest of the Stars
Angel Densetsu - manga
Eureka 7 - seconded
Today in Class 5-2
Seitokai no Ichizon
Tsubasa - Reservoir Chronicle - I'd recommend the manga over the anime though

I've already seen all the ones mentioned so far. I'm even watching the ongoing Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaō/Demon King Daimao and Arakawa Under The Bridge but I was still looking for more. Maybe there isn't more but I would appreciate any suggestions. The main thing is just that it be from the male perspective and I prefer it to be where the girl/girls indulge the guy rather than beat or order him around.

I agree that put me off a bit, but get to around episode 4 and it perks up.

Well I do have B gata H kei but from what I've seen so far it seems to be told mostly from the girl's perspective. I was looking for anime that's told from the guy's perspective.

It's from a girl's perspective; but her perspective is what makes the series so great . You should give a try regardless as her view is nothing like that of a typical shoujo lead's view.
