Quote from daed
yuria 100 shiki
while the series is about the main girl, the lead guy is i think what your after, only maybe to an extreme. kind of an episodic rom/cominu neko jump
def original as far as shounen romances go, but it's been a while since i read it but i think the male lead is what you want.(also look for the epic quote in the part with the hotel later on, it's my favorite)
I'm sorry I don't have any lists (I'm lazy, sue me), but I've read both of them. yuria 100 shiki filled two requirements of what I was looking for, and I really liked Inu Neko jump, which did have a good protagonist. Someone like the main character in those is what I'm looking for.
