Saiunkoku Monogatari episode 1 and 2

Okay guys!!! I just started watching a new anime. It’s called Saiunkoku Monogatari. It seems like a really interesting anime from the reviews and synopsis. So far this anime has 39 episode ands a second season. =D Wish me luck!!!!

Here’s the synopsis by the way:

Saiunkoku is a world of eight provinces or houses, each named after a different colour. The new Emperor, Shi Ryuuki, has gained for a reputation for being uninterested in courtly matters and for flaunting his love for men. Shuurei, although born of the important Kou family, has difficulty making ends meet. She easily accepts an invitation to be the Emperor’s concubine in order to turn him into a good ruler. The mysterious Seiran, a young man who was adopted by her father, goes with her as Ryuuki’s bodyguard. Entering the imperial palace revives Shuurei’s dream of being a court official, and, together with the many companions she meets along the way, continues moving bravely forward while trying to fend off the Emperor’s advances.

It seems that the anime is not takin’ place in Japan, but in China. I’m not really sure, but it seems like China to me. The opening song was really sung with a beautiful voice. I really loved it. Shuurei Kou and Seiran Shi make a nice couple. Too bad Shuurei will be the emperor’s wife and I wish Seiran luck being the army’s temporary captain. Since Shuurei accepted right away when she found out that they are being paied 500 gold pieces she can’t back out now. I was laughing my head off when Shuurei was reading about the emperor. There was a rumor that he likes men more than women….so he’s gay!!! It’s seems that a lot of people know Shuurei from her dad. The emperor who used one of his body guard’s name which is Ran Shuuei. They finally met. The emperor isn’t really eye catching. Usually I fall for a lot of anime guys, but get over him once I see a new one lol. The ending is really nice and beautiful.


The 2nd episode was really interesting. The emperor and Shuurei went to the village and helped out the people. How nice. Also it was sad to hear about Shuurei’s past and how people died and begged for food, so Shuurei, her dad and Serian helped the people survive by giving them fish from their lake and fruits from their trees. Later the next day Shuurei met the emperor named Ryuuki Shi. Jeez….the two of them don’t look different, is Shuurei stupid or something?

Okay…well I’ll give you the review after I finish the 39 episodes. If you wish to watch this anime you can find all 39 episodes here. Hope you guys wait till then! =D
