Ah, Saiunkoku Monogatari! One of my newest loves! Here’s the opening theme song:
Hajimari no Kaze – Ayaka Hirahara


Kou Shuurei, the heroine, accepts an invitation to be the new Emperor’s concubine in order to turn him into a good ruler (and for the money). Shuurei enters the imperial palace, revives her 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.

Wow. There are so many good things to say about this show. If you like something a bit historical fantasy with tons of bishounen and lots of comedy, then this show is definitely for you. It’s just so cute and pretty! I can’t get enough of it. It has 2 seasons so far (the second one is still being subbed). Hopefully there will be a third…

My rating: 9.8/10
