Some of those harem manga do give the non-Asian female a fighting chance... some of them end without revealing who the guy ends up with, so it's up to the readers to match up Onizuka/Urumi Kanzaki or Negi/Evangeline... IMHO those are strongly likely matchups and I lean towards those...


LOL, too bad Urumi Kanzaki is Japanese from her mother while her father is unknown so she can hardly be considered a non-Asian female, while Negi Springfield couldn't be less Asian than what he is since he's born in Wales and his father is from another world.

OoO... you're totally right! Well, Urumi is Blonde and can pass as her mom's American assistant, so that's not too bad, but I totally forgot Negi was British lol. ... Was Nagi from Mars? I know his mum was, but somehow I thought Nagi was from Earth?

Urumi is blonde so we can assume that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the donor was American/European
but I think the OP didn't want a mixed heritage girl, otherwise I can think of many other more fitted since there is hardly any romance going on between her and Onizuka (i.e. Kurisu from Steins;Gate, Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion, etc.).
I don't think it's correct to talk about spoilers from Negima here, but wherever his father is from he's not from Japan so Negi isn't Japanese for sure.

Obviously Nagi Springfield is from Simpson.

Cause Bart Simpson is from Springfield!

so... what manga has taught us, if a male asian were to fall for a non-asian female, chances are it won't work?

on a more serious note, if you count h-manga then there are actually quite a lot of stories incorporating this.

EDIT: or if you count doujins.

What about Monster?

There were at least two non-asian woman who had feelings for our japanese doctor there (at least it looked that way in the anime).

Edit: I didn't notice but reid1 already mentioned it.

Foreign female characters who are destined to hold unrequited love as members of a protagonist's harem are a dime a dozen, but what I said in the OP is that I'm looking for series where those feelings are reciprocated. But there seems to be slim pickings indeed.

Have you read any decent ones? I like to read romantic h-manga when I can find them.

Okay, this mostly about fish, but there's a bit romance between a Canadian girl and her college professor (which is Japanese and older) in Crimsons: Akai Koukaishatachi. It's only one-sided from the girl for now. Maybe it fits?

Home - A historical shoujo about Spain and Japan. Maria lives a quiet peaceful life in Spain except for the constant affections of Antonio, but fate changes when Maria trips onto Koujirou, a samurai. (complete)
User Posted Image
This is probably the closest you'll get to something like Gosick, without the mystery-solving. Definite romance on both sides.


Popcorn Avatar - A young boy, saddened and bitter, attempts to take his life. All goes as planned until a foreigner mysteriously appears... (on-going)
User Posted Image
Yeah, Lisa, a tsundere with more dere than tsun, definitely likes Kurando from the beginning; and it's obvious that Kurando, a kuudere, cares for Lisa deeply. The above picture is funny only because Kurando is so not his regular kuudere self. Hehe.


Legend Hustle - Na Hae-Il, whose father works as a scholar, constantly travels around the world, only wants a regular school life. One day, a mysterious white-haired girl appears, claiming that his father sent her. The fourteen-year-old German girl, Tanya, even states that she is Hae-Il's fiancé and ends up pulling Hae-Il into weird situations where men try to kill him. But does Hae-Il have his own powers, and do they come from Tanya? (on-going)
User Posted Image
Tanya's a bit of the spoilt tsundere type, but you can tell she likes Hae-Il and he likes her, despite the fact that she spends all his money! wink


Zen Martial Arts Academy - Zen is a type of inner power energy that is essential in Marital Arts World and the amount of Zen everyone has is different. Mingyum is person without Zen, who wishes to become East Asia Strongest Martial Artist. Due to his argument with his sister on what Major she wants him to take at school and what he wants, he had left wondering around only to end up in a bad neighbourhood. He ends up saving a girl, but got himself beat up in the process because he has no Zen. Then he got saved by a foreign girl, who announced that she was his fiancée. Now what will happen next? (cancelled)
User Posted Image
Definite romance, although awkward at first. It's clear that likes Irene Mingyum, but due to Mingyum's memory loss, he can't remember Irene. But he soon develops feelings for her, regardless of his memory loss. Too bad it was cancelled. :/


Gangsta. - You wanna get rid of someone? Nicolas and Worick, your neighbourly gangsters, are for hire! (on-going)
User Posted Image
The romance is slow-going at this point, but Alex Benedetto (dark-skinned) is very much infatuated with Nicolas Brown (considered Japanese, and it's believed Brown is his adopted name), who is rather awkward around women but seems to have an interest in Alex. (very dark/graphic story)


Ikoku Shoujo to Sumire no Hanataba (Foreign Girl and Bouquet of Violets) - Masaki Ryou was sent with his older sister to clean up Hiijii-san's mansion. While he was there, Ryou found a water well and accidentally fell into it. As he regained consciousness, he meets this girl named Rose who has been supposedly expecting him, and realizes that he is in pre-modern England. (on-going)
User Posted Image
Not sure about the romance on this one yet, as it's hard to say whether Rose likes Masaki or setting him up with Sumire. In either case, Masaki seems to get along with Rose better than Sumire, as the Sumire can be a bit cold and . . . odd (in a good way).


Alyosha - Foreign exchange student Alyosha Stalina has been attending a Japanese high school for three months. She comes from the nation of Solessia but has yet to fit in with the other students because of her unfriendly demeanour and cold personality. Rightfully so because Alyosha is a trained assassin that has been murdering people since she was five years old. (on-going)
User Posted Image
Funny manga. Not much romance, but it's very clear that Asari-kun has a crush on Alyosha, as do a few other boys.


Over Image - A colourless world, a pure white world, a world where everything is filled with only one colour. What ought to be a young man's usual route to school, Sai is suddenly drawn extraordinary world where he witnesses two young girls fight. One of them is a blonde girl he has never seen before, and the other is Mikage Mikuro, a senpai at his Highschool. After the ordeal, the blonde girl appears as a transfer student at his school. In order to grant her wish, she joined the battle game "Over Image" on her own, and now she seem to have come to sought out Sai to be her companion. (on-going)
User Posted Image
The main girl has a mouthful of a name - Miriabilica Staccato - but she's a foreign exchange student and a cross between a tsundere and kuudere, except she doesn't throw a fit like most tsunderes; although she does threaten to kill Sai if he doesn't become her companion. No romance yet, but it's only the first chapter.


I'm sure there are more romance with male Asian protagonist and non-Asian female, but in the realm of made up worlds and kingdoms or outer space, like Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Zero, Zero no Tsukaima, and Regelia, etc. Darker Than Black has both a manga and anime, and though it's not really centred on romance, Hei, who is Chinese, definitely has feelings for Yin, whose Finnish (real name is Kirsikka) and Yin, despite being a doll, develops feelings for Hei. Other than that, I'm afraid the above are the closest to what you're asking for. :/

The only one I can think of right now is Dance in the Vampire Bund. (Akira is Japanese, right?) And, maybe the latest arc in Yume Tsukai sort of fits? The girl looks foreign, at least.

Also, in Tiger & Bunny (SAKAKIBARA Mizuki), Karina has a huge crush on Kotetsu, though nothing ever really comes out of it.

Since I watched it recently there is also Campione!. Erica Blandelli is from Milan, Italy (like me, too bad I never met her shy ) . There are other non-Asian females since it's an harem.
