Title: Saiunkoku Monogatari
onigiri_alice - January 4, 2007 05:45 AM (GMT)
Since there's so many characters, here are two websites with pics of characters:http://hashihime.atspace.com/saiunkoku_chars.htmlhttp://shadow.randomfandom.com/saiunkoku/chara/index.htm
For seiyuu otakus!:http://www.seiyuu.info/extendedlisting.php...koku+Monogatari
(I am a bit disappointed that my fav seiyuu, Akira Ishida, isn't in it T.T )
Well, for those who don't know this series, here's a brief description from AnimeNewsNetwork:
Born of an old, respected family in the land but subsisting on a low income, Shuurei accepts an invitation to become the new Emperor`s concubine while believing that he is homosexual. The real purpose of her marriage is, however, to educate the lazy Emperor. Her close friend, Seiran, also enters the court as royal guard. Things get complicated when the characters unexpectedly develop feelings for each other.
My 2 cents: if you took a look at the websites listed above, you can see that it's filled with many, many bishies, with an awesome seiyuu cast to boot, itatakimasu! :FOOD!:
It also has a good, solid, interesting storyline. And, there's enough romance to string you along, if the characters or plot doesn't hook you already ;)

I love Saiunkoku Monogatari and Ryuuki :D:D (that's why I voted for him ^^) ;)
He's so cute, especially in the first episodes and his seiyuu is Tomokazu Seki who is one of my favorites (he also does Kyo in Fruits Basket).

i put this anime on hold, cause i want the second season to be out as well before i start watching it again and another reason is that i get to anxious to see her choose who she really loves. i hope ryuuki wins though. :P
ichii-berry - February 15, 2007 08:46 PM (GMT)
^^ this is one of the anime that i have recentyl began to watch. The story is very interesting, and also i really like Shuurei. She's particularly one female character that is different and unique compared to all the other romance genre mangas/shoujo. Also every guy(except the old fellows) and bishiies ^^
moname - February 16, 2007 10:22 AM (GMT)
Yes go for it SHi seiran!
I think this anime is a pretty okay one. I like the manga more though but I think the music did a pretty good job.
yashiro - February 17, 2007 11:54 AM (GMT)
It has to be Ryuuki! He has the cutest voice & face ;)
I really hope for a happy Shuurei & Ryuuki ending...
I love this series and the ending song is fabulous :YAY!:
artemis07 - February 17, 2007 04:08 PM (GMT)
Love the anime. I voted for Seiran cause I want him to be together with Shuurei. Not sure if that's going to happen though. I heard that there's going to be a second season starting in April.
aikawadb - February 17, 2007 06:06 PM (GMT)
i vote for Ryuuki. he is really cute and he is my favorite character.
Semyprecious - February 18, 2007 02:53 AM (GMT)
Yougetsu, change is good. LOL
AnimeGrl - February 18, 2007 03:39 PM (GMT)
i chose ryuuki, he is alright i guess and cute-ish.
mysticchowz - February 23, 2007 11:10 PM (GMT)
This series is very entertaining. I can't wait for the rest of the episodes to be subbed.
rouge - April 18, 2007 09:58 PM (GMT)
im uploading the 2nd season
i need to look for other episodes
i just stumbled across the 2nd season 1st episode so yeah
i saw it already and its pretty darn funny!
clee - May 7, 2007 11:48 PM (GMT)
kyaaaaa!!! :FOOD!: i loved all the characters all the guys were super bishies! :hahaha: i really like the main character shuurei becuase she isnt really a typical herione in most stories who would ending up falling in love with a guy...shes really different becuse she has a goal to fulfill and completely throws aside the idea of love. :) i really like the anime that i watche the whole season in two days :YAY!: :hahaha:
renka - May 8, 2007 11:23 PM (GMT)
Yea, all the guys are really cute. :YAY!: And although I really like Ryuuki (especially his voice actor Seki Tomokazu :hahaha: ) I voted for Shuurei's dad cuz..he's just so cool!! I like his character, especially how he seems like a dull guy who can't make tea but is really a legendary killer. XD
~*nuriko*~ - May 10, 2007 06:09 AM (GMT)
Definitely Ryuuki, he is cute and dependable and he is very clever but he don't really shows it. he pushy to on where shuurei's love lies ...
manga-lover1988 - May 10, 2007 01:04 PM (GMT)
My favourite is Ryuuki coz his really hilarious and He is a great Emperor. His really cute in many ways but I hope his love for Shurrie will bloom!.. I really like this anime I have read the manga, but I am looking forward to it.. Season II hopes to come soon!!... This anime is so Kawaii.. Love the anime so much!!
obscurayue - May 18, 2007 06:28 AM (GMT)
This is my favorite anime of all time! It's so frustrating waiting for the next season to be subbed. I even resorted to watching the first episode in japanese before the subs came out, lol. Surprisingly, I understood just about everything. That was weird moment, yet strangely gratifying. You gotta love a drunk Seiran.
barbka - May 18, 2007 07:20 AM (GMT)
I love Ryuuki. He is so nice, childish and beautifull. His love for Shuurei is so big that he is prepared to do anything for her. He helps her become what she whishes for and he is prepared to be away from her just to make her happy with her dream. She would make an excellent empress and I really hope that in the end she will marry him and I won't have to see a nother FY. I allso like Seiran - logical hehe they are brothers :)
littlepuffybrat - May 19, 2007 07:17 AM (GMT)
Ohhh This is a good anime I just finished watching the whole first season an hour ago, boy it was good though the ending kinda sucked but im glad they made a second season. ^^ What pisses me off is Shurrei never fights back as in resists, whever she gets kissed by someone...
Doesnt any think so? I luv the main guys on there man Theyre sooo HOT!! :hahaha:
BlueFlame519 - July 4, 2007 05:29 PM (GMT)
My favorite male character is Kou Ryuuki. He is just too cute! ;)
lilinnocence - July 10, 2007 02:09 AM (GMT)
RYUUREN!! n.n I love his personality
shadysgrl522 - July 15, 2007 02:17 PM (GMT)
ive never watched is it good anime does it have romance
shadysgrl522 - July 15, 2007 02:22 PM (GMT)
i just looked it up it doesnt look very good they dont get together in the end
eternaltorture - July 16, 2007 04:38 PM (GMT)
i like both shuuei, kouyuu, and not to forget, to eigetsu!! they're all wonderful men!! :] except maybe shuuei is a bit too playful with the women... -_-
zhafire - August 14, 2007 01:59 PM (GMT)
I love Ryuuki! I cant wait for more RyuukixShuurei scenes! They look soo good together! I havent really seen much of season two, but I have to start catching up! ;)
samaru_sa - August 14, 2007 04:33 PM (GMT)
I like Shuurei the best, even more then the male characters....= =
I guess her father is cooler then the rest of the main cast. I mean, a legendary killer in disguise, is that cool or what? :music:
grimorum - August 21, 2007 07:54 AM (GMT)
I vote Eigetsu because when he gets drunk another personality pops up and he's completely different than his scholar counterpart.

moonlit123 - March 29, 2008 01:54 PM (GMT)
I love seiran and ryuuki!! Especially when they are small!! They looked soooo cute~! Especially Ryuuki!! ;) ;)
katsura - April 2, 2008 12:30 AM (GMT)
seiran, he so nice and protective of shuurei
but i think ryuuki x shuurei make a better couple of course
tiki808 - April 3, 2008 06:26 AM (GMT)
i havent been able to watch the second season yet due to my lack of time but i'm really happy it got licensed in the U.S. just hopefully the voice actors dont murder the series but i like seiren the best!!!
paradisestarz - April 3, 2008 09:44 AM (GMT)
shurei and ryukki...haha...ryukki is cute when hes infront of shurei
mayachan - September 22, 2008 05:35 PM (GMT)
i like Ryuuki but i like seiran too!!! :LUV~!:
babycookie68 - September 24, 2008 05:44 AM (GMT)
Too many bishies! I LOVE THIS SERIES both season one and two but what i hate the most is that the main girl never fights back when man are forcing a kiss ro something on her..Boy thought i wish i was her surrounded by so many hot guys =] I thought some parts were so sad..I cried during most of them.
