La Corda and Harukanaru are shoujo titles that present romance with a little bit of fantasy. Though both titles claim to be romance, little really goes on with the development of the main character's relationship with another guy. The protagonist is, at most, normal and naive. I think the biggest similarity is the similar presentation of one girl being surrounded by a whole whack of bishies!
In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!
Well I suggest that if you liked La Corda, you definitely go watch Saiunkoku Monogatari. However, it depends on why you loved La Corda so much.
If you loved it for it's HOT MALE CHARACTERS =O! then Saiunkoku is definitely the next best thing =) From all the anime I've watched, these two have the HOTTEST male characters I've seen, with the BEST animation to boot.
The story itself is VERY different, however, both include female protaganists with a passion for something they love. Both the female leads definitely aim for something they want out of life and their male "friends" just happen to go along with them to help.
