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!

If you’re looking for some slightly comedic drama with a whole lot of spirits thrown into the mix, Spice and Wolf and Hakushaky to Yousei might be the two tales (no pun intended) for you. Both heroines have a extraordinary power that the male leads have to rely on throughout their journey together. The Medieval setting of the two is a key backdrop in the adventure the protagonists share.
