The Story of Saiunkoku

The Story of Saiunkoku

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!

Both series feature a smart heroine who ends up surrounded by male suitors. Everyone around her is sucked in by her charisma, and she helps everyone she meets with their problems. Both anime blend comedy with drama and romance really well.

chamomille chamomille says...

Both anime are about a cheerfull and energetic girl with strong personality that reaches everyone's heart. Both anime are quite romantic (and full of bishounen) and have political character. If you liked one, be sure to check out the other.

Nymn Nymn says...

A world of politics, drama, a reverse harem of bishounen and of cause, romance. I can't think of anything else that would come as similliar. They're also among the best shoujo anime/manga you'll ever come across. Enjoy. :)

Galadriel Galadriel says...

in both animes we see a young, smart, beautiful and strong female character surrounded by bishounen who are attracted by her charismatic personality and also both animes have a deep political aspect.If you seen and liked one of this two be sure to check the other as well.

In Hanasakeru Seishounen and Saiunkoku Monogtari the female protagonist is extremely smart and is able to keep up with her male counterparts along the way in whatever the situation is.  They also seem to be able to make every situation turn out great no matter how much the odds seem to be against them.  Not to mention both heroines are surrounded by amazingly hot looking guys!

GrnEydDvl GrnEydDvl says...

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.

MoonXArtemis MoonXArtemis says...

Both reverse harems, with a strong-minded girl. All males are mature and dependable. The female in both anime is kind, intelligent, beautiful, and caring. Both stories are very interesting and keeps you wanting for more. 

lewcuifang lewcuifang says...

both stories involve strong, smart and charismatic female protagonists who attracts lots of bishounen in their quest to fight against serious political issues and other serious matters of their country, lots of romantic moments between one female and a bunch of male characters

Both of these animes feature main caracters who were sheltered as a child with childhood best friends. They are both pushed to, in a broad sense, find themselves.

In Hanasakeru Seishounen, Kajika lived on an island for most of her childhood and Li Ren would occasionally visit her. Her father plays a game with Kajika where she will meet three men and choose one of them to marry her. As she does so, she learns more about who she really is and how her position as the daughter of Harry Burnsworth helps but also restricts some of her movements in doing what she believes.In Yona of the Dawn, Yona is the daughter of King Il, and as a princess, her father gave her everything she wanted. There was no need for her to venture outside her small world. That is, until she was chased out of the castle with one of her childhood friends, Hak. After speaking with a priest, she goes on a journey to find four dragons. Throughout this journey, Yona grows from a weak princess who always thought of herself and needed to be protected, to someone who looks out for others as she struggles to stand on her own feet.

mdolphins mdolphins says...

I agree and while I just watched Yona, I sometimes thought of Kajika and how similiar the two women were. They both had a strong sense of justice for the weak and both felt they had to do something about it themselves rather than just let the beautiful, strong men around them take care of it. If you like one show with a strong female lead character then you will like the other.

GrnEydDvl GrnEydDvl says...

Both of these shows feature a girl who should, based on her sheltered past, be spoiled, pampered, and weak, but who ends up being incredibly strong willed and brave.  Both of them travel around in search of a group of men who are rare and unique, and who flock to her because of her leadership, inner strength, and charm in order to protect her.  On their journey, they help each other and those around them as they learn about the world and grow as individuals.  These shows however, are not your typical reverse harems. They both feature fighting, murder, and politcal intrique.  If you are looking for a complicated story with depth and powerful, fascinating characters, then these shows are for you.

When I first watched Hanasakeru, Kajika reminded me so much of Rahzel. They are both stubborn yet calm, logical, and catious in most situations. When one of the girls meet someone and that person is going through a dilema Rahzel's or Kajika's characters would be like an angel and help them into the light. The other characters in both animes also resembles eachother like Li Ren or Eugene compared to Alzeid.  If you are looking for two similar anime, I highly recommend Hatenkou Yuugi and Hanasakeru.

lilbabybluetoo lilbabybluetoo says...

These two animes are really well done and have great artwork. Plus the main characters are really similar because they both have unique ways of viewing the world.

Hatenkou Yuugi is more about Razel finding her place in the world along with her companions. Hanasakeru Seishounen is more about Kajika helping others find their place.

But in both they end up loved by the people hey choose to care about and it kindof inspires that "Reverse Harem" feel. (Well Hanasakeru IS a Reverse Harem, but you get what I mean)

I highly recommend both animes. If you enjoyed one you'll enjoy the other.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

I love the similarities between the main characters in Hanasakeru Seishounen and Hatenkou Yuugi!  The female leads of Kajika and Rahzel are both really strong and independent in nature, they are insightful yet caring and always want to do the right thing and help someone out.  These two heroines embark on some challenging adventures with boys all around them following their lead.

Both of these shows star spunky-yet-gentle female heiresses whose fate/marriage is being decided based on a game.

yaya32498 yaya32498 says...

Both These Shows have a theme of finding the perfect husband for a daughter of a very important father. La storia della Arcana Famiglia is more of a fantasy type with special powers and Hanasakeru Seishounen is more a reality and/or more real life senario. Both are good animes.

Okay so the plot of both of these animes are completely different!! But the main characters are what make these animes similar in a sense...both are strong independent women at very young ages and are able to make rational thought out decisions and speak their minds.  Though they are young they have the minds of a person at least twice their age and command attention.  I feel that because of this you will like both of these anime!

in both animes we see a young, cheerful and energetic female character surrounded by handsome male characters (both of this animes are filled with bishounen characters) and both have encripted a deep reverse harem aspect.However there are some differences between this two but in what i mentioned above they are kinda similar (Pretear concentrates on magic aspects while Hanasakeru concentrates more on political aspects).So if you liked one of this two i think its worth checking the other as well.

Neo Abyss Angelique and Hanasakeru Seishounen both have the same type of feel to them.  The heroines are strong willed characters trying with all of their might to do the right thing.  It does not hurt that both of these females also just happening to be surrounded by extremely good looking guys in the process!
