Does this manga have the typical harem tropes, like the annoying tsundere?

Among the 6 heroines, 4 are big-sisterly, 1 is the lazy my pace kind and the last one is a tsundere classmate.

Oh great...
Well, hopefully it will be something akin to Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou. I love those Onee-shouta type anime, despite not finding one really really good one.

Yes, it's basically Sunohara-sou with more older sister type characters.

Interesting...hee hee.
Although, judging from the main male character's design, he appears to look like a typical shonen looking kid.
Personally, I much prefer the more shyer, feminine, and weaker type shoutas as opposed to the ones who seem typically masculine or feminine but wants to be masculine.

What I'd like to see is a male MC but he feels more like a shojo MC in a shojo romance manga rather than your typical harem comedy ecchi.

I know, right. This one is still enjoyable but having an otokonoko protagonist in such serie should be mandatory, otherwise it's rather hard to feel this family-like proximity that onee-shota usually have.

Um, well, I don't mind feminine guys who dress as women, I'm all for guys dressing however they like but I'm talking more of a personality type. His behavior, to be more specific.

For example: he likes to be very clingy with his taller, stronger, and for a more optional type, a more masculine girlfriend, meaning his always wants to wrap his arms around his girlfriend's one arm. He also wants to feel like the princess/damsel in distress who will be rescued and protected by his female knight in shining armor from a bully, be it male/female. Does that make sense? I want him to feel like a male girlfriend rather than the boyfriend type.

It doesn't need to be cross-dressed to fall under the otokonoko category, a short and effiminate submissive protagonist who is lead around by his onee-san while behaving bashfully like sunohara's Aki, that's what i had in mind.

Beside the fact that the kind i'm thinking of would be too shy to be clingy we are most likely on the same wavelength when thinking of a girlfriend-like protagonist, though they are a rarity in shonen series.

That's because female protagonists in shonen series are few and far between. They don't sell for some reason unless they are 90 or 80 percent ecchi fare like Medaka Kurokami or any of the To Love Ru girls. I'm not against fanservice(the best kind of fanservice for me is muscular females), but I'd like my female protagonist to be alot more than that. I'd like her to actually be HEROIC and LOVING. Oh, and have her be muscular. Hell, make almost all the female characters be muscular, while the male characters have small frail bodies, with certain exceptions. A gendered reverse Shonen Jump action anime.

As for the boyfriend, I guess he wouldn't be shy, but he does act alot like a girlfriend or a girl would act. In dramatic scenes, the male would be the one begging his female knight not to leave him as he's on the verge of tears, at other times he would ask her to kiss him. Its also important to note that the girlfriend be taller and stronger than him, so that he be the one that sits on her lap, rather than the other way around.
