Synopsis:

Shuurei Kou and Eigetsu To, co-governors of the Sa Province, are determined to revitalize the region by making it a research capital. The road isn’t easy, though - opposition still remains and playing politics as the first female governor can be tricky. To add to the hardships, a mysterious illness in Sa Province gives a shady cult an opportunity to gain power by preying on the people’s fears. Eigetsu and Shuurei are undaunted in their goals, but with the prejudices of the times and Eigetsu’s past coming back to haunt him, can the young governors overcome the odds?

Hanasakeru Seishounen

Hanasakeru Seishounen

Kajika is the fourteen-year-old heiress of the Burnsworth Corporation who just wants to live a normal life, but her father has other plans. He informs Kajika that her fate is a heavy one to carry and he will only tell her the full details when the man she intends to marry is by her side. As such he has set up a ‘marriage game' for her; Kajika will meet three men that he has specifically picked out and she is to select one of the three to become her husband. There's just one catch; Kajika must also make her chosen man fall for her, since the ‘suitors' are unaware of the game in which they are participating. For a girl who has never loved anyone except for her pet leopard, this game will prove to be a trial. With her over-protective childhood friend and personal shadow, Li Ren, keeping a close watch, will Kajika be able to choose who will become her lifelong partner and finally learn of her true fate?

Both animes have many similarites and the most obvious one is the reverse harem aspect, centered on a strong and inteligent female protagonist and surrounded by protective male characters.Both animes have a very well defined political aspect.If you like one of this two animes im sure you will love the other one as well.

GrnEydDvl

Both of these shows feature a very strong willed female protagonist who is outspoken and outgoing, highly dedicated to and enthusiatic about the task at hand, and who manages to charm everyone around her.  Both women are followed around by a primary friend/bodyguard and a whole host of other strong, attractive men as they deal with every problem that comes their way.  While the setup for each show seems romance based, and there are plenty of romantic moments for the fangirl in you, the primary focus of each show is political, as the main characters try to deal with the problems in their countries, from corruption, to assasination attemps, to would-be usurpers of the throne.  If you are looking for a show that is a bit more intelligent than the standard shojo, but still lets you be a fan girl every now and then, these shows are definitely for you.

Both Hakuouki and Saiunkoku are stories about strong female characters who are surrounded by various male characters who are historical figures. They take place in two totally different time periods, but both protagonists similarly encourage and assist the characters around them. Hakuouki does lean in a darker, supernatural direction with less romance, but I think fans of Saiunkoku would enjoy it nonetheless.

Whilst at first glance this may appear a strange recommendation to make, both of these series share some similarities. Aside from the shared mix of humour and plot, both Kyo Kara Maoh series 3 and Saiunkoku Monogatari series 2 have central characters who have accepted or gained their positions of power in their countries and are striving to make them better, whilst having to deal with the politics that surround them.

Though these anime's are very oppsoite when it comes to action, and setting, but they're both full of politics and slight romance. Gundam SEED has slightly more romance in it than Saiunkoku Monogatari, but it isn't apparent until late into the series.

Saiunkoku Monogatari is a slower anime whose base story line reflects the political actions needed to create a peaceful society and to help the people that live within that society. In Gundam SEED, the main purpose that the Gundams were built for are to create peace between the Earth and Plant.

Both have very intricate plot twisty, and a lot of deciet, that must be overcome by intelligent political stances.
