"'Ai Wo Chodai" ( "Give Me Love") 2 volumes- ongoing by Kazumi Ooya
Marumie switch careers from local news to comic act to follow the man she fell in love with. This is the first josei reverse harem that I've read. The josei reverse harem for live action (if the term is applicable) that I've seen are "Lunch Queen" and " Himitsu no Hanazono". This is the same mangaka of "Yume Chu", but the mature theme and scenes are evident in the first chapter alone.

"Shounen Harem" ("Boy's Harem") 3 volumes- complete by Aya Oda
The title is a dead giveaway. There's even a definition of boy's harem. I'm not sure if it's originally in the manga or just added by the scanlator. I'm also curious to know more about the harem and its' future members. This is from the same creator of "Boy's Kingdom".

"Cy-Believers" 4 volumes-ongoing by Shioko Mizuki
Just like "Love Master A", I saw a review describing this as a reverse harem. The preview is too vague to tell if it is, but if you want to check it it's on GoComi .

The casting for the Korean "Hana Yori Dango" has been extended. No one has been confirmed yet for any role and SS501's frontman Kim Hyun Joong as Hanazawa Rui was also debunked. But the drama's producers said that 80% of current popular idols in Korea have auditioned for parts. The official announcement of the cast is tentatively scheduled on August 28. The drama will air this January 2009.
"Dyosa" ("Goddess") is the newest "fantaserye" (fantasy series) in the Philippines and it premiers tonight. When Josephine turns 18, she learns that she's the chosen one to bring back the balance of good and evil. She becomes the goddess of the earth, water and heaven in centaur, siren and half-bird forms. I'm not a big fan of our own soaps because of formulaic and long-drawn storytelling. But when I saw the teasers of the guys who are all in love with the heroine, I felt like I'm Kirimi of Ouran. It's so reverse harem! It's also a surprise for me as Philippine TV networks always build a 'love team' of a girl and boy. Too bad it's likely I won't be able to follow it not unless someone upload it which is also seldom.
The enemy who falls in love with the goddess.
The bestfriend who's secretly in love with the goddess.
The mortal who's in love with a godess.

"Kaichou wa Maid-sama!" ("The Student Council President is a Maid!" or "My Sweet Kaichou") 6 volumes- ongoing by Hiro Fujiwara
The story is surprisingly tame and boring at times for its' moe-ness. The cute art and promising romance is the only thing that's piquing my interest. I'm thinking this will end up as not a reverse harem since the story is about Misaki and Usui. But I'll give extra credits to the three idiots (A, B and C) who earned a lot of cameos and the Ayuzawa Club.
