Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

~Saiunkoku Ramblings~

Saiunkoku Monogatari is the most satisfying anime that I have seen since.. *tries to think* wow, I can't even think. But everything adds up, the characters are endearing and after watching the 19th episode, there is such a PRIDE that I've continued this far, and an eagerness to watch more. This really strokes my hard-on for Ancient China and well the characters are all amazing and lovely. (And I realize that with 20 more episodes to go in the series, I think.. we are due for another intro).

I look forward to more and this is evidentally my hard-on anime.. and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The drawing style is crisp and clean, the tension between Shuurei and Ryuuki in the last episode was very good, and yet the female -doesn't- fall all over the male which I think is a strong point in this anime... not to mention the female lead anyways is strong in the fact taht her intentions and goals are noble. (to become a official of the Saiunkoku empire). She pwns many of the female leads to hell and away because she's just THAT damn awesome.

Once again if you haven't checked out that series, I strongly suggest you do. Watch more then the first couple of episodes, I guarentee that by the 6th episode you'll be watching it like a mad dog.
