I'm trying to expand from my usual shounen taste, but I've already seen the following:

Sailor Moon

Fushigi Yugi

Sekirei

Ikki Tousen

You can check out any of the Tenchi Muyo series (except Tenchi in Tokyo, it's awful) and Asobi ni Ikuyo. Glad you already watched Sekirei, it's a good one.

I have a continually updated list focused on romantic comedies and harems: Harem and Romantic Comedies I've Enjoyed a Lot, Somewhat, and Just a Small Bit  And recently, for another thread I broke them down and mentioned others not on the list: Any sugestions 
 
Currently I am watching a shojo horror series called Ghost Hunt which is pretty good.  It's about a high school girl who goes to work for a stoic paranormal investigator who's only a few years older than herself.  The show is comprised of "cases" with each case running 3 or 4 episodes long.  There are 24 episodes in the series I believe.  This isn't wild action-adventure either, but more low key horror similar to something like the Blair Witch Project.  If you want full blown demons running about causing havoc, you'll need to look elsewhere.  I like it so far and I'm about half way through.  There is no ecchi or harem elements in this, I should add to avoid confusion.

There's no such thing as a good Harem show.  Along with its twin sister magical girlfriend anime it objectifies women to a stunning degree, and is probably the lowest form of anime storytelling outside of pornography.  Chobits was easily the best harem/magical girlfriend show that I've ever seen, and even that is barely tolerable.  But then, if you thought Fushigi Yuugi and Ikki Tousen were good than you'd probably enjoy harem shows.

Wow, I could not disagree more with your take on harem and magical girlfriend shows.  I do not believe they objectify women in any unfavorable way.  I will concede that they are often shallow and based from a juvenile perspective but that in itself doesn't make them harmful.  I accept them as teenage fantasy and frivolous just like video games that cast the player as some massive dude who slices through waves of enemies with a giant axe.  I find them fun because they do not take themselves seriously.  It's a suspension of reality that I enjoy, but it's still fiction.  I am not usually looking for too much depth in what I enjoy although I don't discount it either.  Most of what I am looking for is something to make me laugh and harem and magical girlfriend shows do that.   I guess I am not terribly evolved, but that's okay since I can accept my failings as a human being while still enjoying Urusei Yatsura.

Nicely put. That's just about what I was going to say.

If you like Ecchi/Harems, be sure to toss in both series for Heaven's Lost Property along with Demon King Daimao. Both shows are full of wild humor, ecchi-infused plots, and one poor sap that always gets caught up in the lives of multiple women in wild ways.

@LuffyDUzumaki:  The second Negima series " Negima!?" has decent action and good story.  It also has an odd sense of humor similar to Pani Poni Dash.  The first Negima series " Negima!" was more character driven and didn't have much action until the end and that felt tacked on.

Ugh, I always forget about Heaven's Lost Property! I'm ready for the movie because I want to see what's all up with the story.
 
As for Demon King Daimao, it's certainly interesting and confusing with it's story. If anyone is interested in my take on the show check out Dunce Cap: Demon King! Demon King! Demon King!
