Summary: 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.


I admire Shuurei's strength and her willingness to work hard to achieve her goals despite rather daunting obstacles. I'm rather curious about Seiga's character in the second season simply because there seems to be a rather interesting story there. All the characters are interesting for one reason or another and the story's pretty good too.

I love the art. I don't know about the others, but I LOVE THE ART. A LOOOOT. I think the story is interesting if you stop to appreciate it but if you don't, it feels kind of bland, which is expected of a light novel story, but upon examining it, it certainly is fantastic.

I love Shuurei because she's pretty, smart and strong (mentally). It's really refreshing to see female protagonists being all three and that's a huge reason why I love this. I see so many series with females that deserve a tight slap on the face so this is a nice change. And I really aspire to be like her.

I really enjoyed watching this anime~ :)

It was a good change to see a 'strong' (not physically) main female characters :)

The anime was quite political and all, which was interesting... AND not to forget the bishies~ X)

Love this anime, I really wish there is season 3 XD. Love it when she show the other men what she can do, and her romance is very touching. This is actually a reverse harem no? and I like reverse harem and theres very few made into anime. Best of all its historical!

I watched both seasons and relatively enjoyed it. :) Hopefully, they will release a third season once the novel ends, because I do want to know what happens...

From the very beginning, you know that this is not a "and they all lived happily ever after" anime - mainly because of the fact that it deals with the Shinsengumi. I really liked the characters in this, the art style and the unique story twist that they present. But I have to say, several times I just wanted to cry as I watched one character after another die.

I liked this series too. I wish there would be another season cause I want to see how it really ends.

I like how the female lead is a strong character.

The anime was pretty interesting when I saw it a few years ago. The artwork was really nice. The opening and ending were pretty good too.

I was very enthusiastic about this anime in the beginning. I watched the first episodes in the first season. I liked the interaction between shurei and Ryuuki especially when ryuuki acting like he is stupid and pretend to be gay but later on I start to loose interest. So I guess I need to continue watching the rest of the episodes. I guess I started loose interest when I started reading summary of the episodes and some of the episodes becomes boring.

I love Saiunkoku Monogatari. The story was very nice. I love Ryuuki the most. Sadly,they did not continue in the anime. But you can know more about the story by reading the novel.
