Currently Reading: Saiunkoku Monogatari (The Story of Saiunkoku)

“I’m so sick of wheat!”

There aren’t a lot of stories that I’m willing to re-watch over and over again, however this story is special.

Author: Yukino Sai, Illutrated by Yura Kairi

Genre: Fantasy, Politics, Romance, Action, Adventure, Age: YA+

Released: 2005 – ongoing 

—————————–

This is the story of a high-born, albeit, poor girl who, along with her bodyguard, are taken into the royal palace to help the lazy emperor become a better ruler. Set in a fantasy world reminiscent of old-Oriental lands, magic and mystery hangs thick in the air, and the people of this world have plot within plots.

This was already an anime that was released in 2006 – 2007, based on the light novel series. I’d watched both series 1 and 2, and now when the manga based on the anime series is being released, I find myself falling in love with the character all over again.

(Main character: Shuurei Kou)

A more detailed review will be up after I finish volumes 1 and 2.
