I just finished the first season of Saiunkoku Monogatari. And it made me cry, sniffle and wibble alot... I've no words for how sweet it was, but it certainly was. It was very fufilling and I can't wait for episode 40 which will be the beginning of the new season. The exchange between Ryuuki and Shuurei was very sweet and while I like Kokujun and Shunki, I am also starting to like Kokujun and Ryuuren (Shuei's little brother). It's so very cute. Episode 39 just made me yay with glee, because the series defintiely holds my heart.. it just has a little bit of everything.
I also cannot believe that the voice actor for Tei Yuushun, is Canna Nobutoshi. (Of Ban Midou fame). I am going to have to listen to the voice a little bit more, but I'm used to him playing livewire characters.
