Somehow even more amazing than the first season, if that is even possible. Very well done and absolutely adorable. I would highly reccommed it. 

This is the second season of Akagami no Shirayukihime (or Snow White with the Red Hair). It is a continuation of the first season and it further advances the romance between Prince Zen and Shirayuki. We also get to know the characters better and find out about thier pasts. 


Shirayuki recieves an invite from Prince Raji of Tanbarun to come and stay at the castle. Prince Izana, Zen's older brother, forces her to go with hopes of getting rid of Shirayuki from Zen's life. He wants to do so becuase she is of a different social status and knows that she is in love with Zen. He fears she will ruin Zen's reputation as a prince. 

Obi, one of the prince's aids (who is very skilled in combat) accompanies her to Tanbarun. The others stay behind in Clarines where they try and find a young "pretty boy" who has intentions of kidnapping Shirayuki. No one knows what his intentions are, so they are taking great caution with the situation. Long story short, the pretty boy finds out that Shirayuki has left Clarines and follows her to Tanbarun. He ends up kidnapping her but his plans are foiled when Shirayuki and the pretty boy are then kidnapped (yes, again) by an infamous group of pirates known as The Claw of the Sea (pretty boy used to be a part of thier crew but he abandoned them so they want revenge). 

That night Zen recieves word that Shirayuki has been kidnapped. Obi had met his match while trying to protect Shirayuki in the incident and was knocked out cold. Zen and his aids, Kiki and Mitsuhide, race to Tanbarun and with the help of prince Raji and a group of people (many of whom are ex-nobels) called the Lions of the Mountains. 

They end up rescuing Shirayuki and taking down the Claw of the Sea in the process. Through this incident many of the characters develop well (personality, way they do things, etc.) and we are introduced to Shirayuki's father (she had been raised by her grandparents. I'm going to be nice and not tell you who he is). We also get to know more about Obi's mysterious past.


Brief nudity when the main characters are forced to stay at a hotel overnight since it is raining and they use the public baths. Nothing is shown. 

Disney style romance continued. Never goes beyond a kiss. 

A couple of sex jokes that will fly over the heads of most children. 

One of the main antagonists in this season is a pirate and is scantily clothed. Midriff and cleavage are visible, but it is not excessive. She wears short skirt as well. She is abusive and harsh towards her crew. 

There is quite a bit of fighting throughout the show but it never goes beyond what you would find in a Disney movie. 

Use of "damn," "hell," and "bastard" in a lot of episodes.

Snow White with the Red Hair is one of the best overall animes ever made.  It is hard to find a flaw anywhere.  It is a near perfect fairytail story with a plausible yet fairly original concept.  It may not be original in every regard but the way the story and characters progress makes it a bit more unique.  The characters in this series are mostly all good quality characters and some are among the best characters ever.  Zen is nearly too perfect though that is not exaclty true since he was only nearly perfect after meeting, befriending, and spending time with Shirayuki.  In the first, episode at the beginning he does exhibit a few flaws that virtually vanish over the time he spends with Shirayuki. Shirayuki improves from herself at the beginning of season one's first episode as well.  Somehow her positve power even effects the main villain from the first season to change his tune and do a complete 180 to the point he becomes a pretty upstanding guy and actually develops morals.  

Season two picks up from season one and keeps the momentum moving.  The characters grow exceptionally more during the second season in a way by which they find their own footing.  The animation is as brilliant as season one though not perfect but it is bright, colorful, and detailed.  Despite not being perfect it comes pretty close.  The romance angle of the story takes a upturn while facing new challenges.  You could easily feel the emotional turns pouring off the screen.  New and surprising heroic characters join the story as new enemies and obstacles obstruct the path forward.  It may very well be his brother or father foresaw some future event and put Zen to another test as well as testing Shirayuki.  Insight is revealed to how Zen's brother really feels and why he behaves toward him the way he does.  Shirayuki's own past is explored so by the end of the series many questions that were left for us to ponder are revealed.  More of the story is filled out and concluded better and more completely than most animes or tv shows and even a few movies.  

Characters are as oustanding as the first season only even better, partly because more is revealed about several characters such as Zen's brother, Obi, and Shirayuki.  Voice work is well matched to the characters in the dub at least and sound is melded so well you may not even realize how natural it all sounds.  Animation is a few notches above average but a bit short of the best level of quality.  Aside from some of the somewhat violent scenes and talk of selling people, there is little else that might concern viewers' age ranges.  However rare the violent scenes are or the kidnapping and selling plots may be, be sure to keep those things in mind when deciding who is old enough or mature enough to watch it.  

Snow White with the Red Hair season two may well be an example of everything to do right in an anime.  What few sticking points or flaws it has  are rare and of little impact on the overall effect of the story.
