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?

Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?

this two animes have many things in common, in both animes we see a strong female character surrounded by male characters, in both animes we see a well defined fantasy, magic aspect (especialy in Pretear).If you like one then be sure to check the other one as well.

The Twelve Kingdoms

The Twelve Kingdoms

Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.

Looking at a mirror produces a reverse image of oneself. This mirror image, though so similar to the beholder, is in fact the beholder's exact reversal. This is perhaps the relationship between Saiunkoku Monogatari and The Twelve Kingdoms.

The play of politics and the role of individuals mark the foundations of a prosperous kingdom. The tale of such individuals who will pave the way for the kingdom is the primary focus of Saiunkoku Monogatari and The Twelve Kingdoms. The main heroines that thrived to pave politics and prosper their kingdoms did so in the exact reversal of the other (while one relied on intellectual means, another would use force and charisma). Ultimately, one can draw countless comparisons and contrasts between these two images. Yet, like the image viewers see in the mirror, loving one image would connote the loving of the other. After all, they are mirror images.

Note: Saiunkoku Monogatari 1 ~ The Twelve Kingdoms Book 1; Whereas, Saiunkoku Monogatari 2 ~ The Twelve Kingdoms Book 3
