I just started watching Freezing (don't judge!) and it's essentially the SAME formula. In Freezing the main character is a complete and utter dolt though, so much so that I only watch for the fan service (which there is a TON of). How many times can you use the same plot Japan? HOW MANY???
Well, all harem follows the same plotline, with slightly different setting. I am sucker for "your average idiot" characters, so I can stand those anime. Examples include Shinonono Tabane from IS, Akihisa Yoshii from Baka Test, the ever so famous Mikuru etc. I don't like a ton of fanservice though (for example Highschool of the Dead), slight touch is enough (Code Geass).
