Saiunkoku Monogatari 彩雲国物語 or in english Tale of the Land of Colored Clouds. DRAMA/COMEDY/ROMANCE.......


the protagonist of the story is Ko Shuurei, an energetic, smart, hard-working and independent girl who aspires to be a court official of the imperial palace. Although she is capable of passing the exams for court officials, her dream is impossible due to the fact that women are not allowed to meddle into politics. But meeting the young Emperor, Shi Ryuuki, she finally had a chance to make her dreams come true....

The story is really really interesting~ not much boring scenes because most of the time, the characters are hilarious! PLUS! the characters are so good-looking whether it's a female or a male. Season One ended with Shuurei proclaimed as new governor of Sai Province. It was so sad because Ryuuki knew he wouldn't be seeing Shuurei for a long time. He sacrificed his love for Shuurei's dreams.....awwww,so sweet......anyway, The Second Season was more interesting because Shuurei was temporarily dismissed as a court official and they still haven't seen each other since season one! (they have it here in CR.com) The second season is still ongoing --

The second season has ended its run,and i dont know when are we getting a third season,cause the novel is slow

Saiunkoku is nice,if you like bishies,you got a lot there,if you like politics,you have it as well.you want romance,it is also there.

Season 2 is not so funny in my opinion.Things are more serious than season 1,and i miss my dose of sakujun.But hey,you got a bunch of hot bishies in return

If you ask me,the main reason this anime is this popular is all thanks to it's bishies.Still,it's running for quite long already and the story is dragging on for too long >__< Still,it carries a really oriental flavour with a twist to it,which appeals a little to me,since I'm Chinese ^^

THIS IS IN MY TOP 5!!!! I love how this anime makes history fun. (even if its not accurate) I didn't feel like i was going to fall asleep once! I really wish that the romance in it would move along quicker but .... I feel like every time i watch it another man is after her and she sooo into her own little world that she doesn't see it!!! Very frustrating! Saying all that its still one of my favoriets.

Well, Saiunkoku Monogatari is indeed a story you wouldn't want to miss. For me, the reason why this anime a real hit is because at first look, viewers will really mistake it for FUSHIGI YUUGI which as we all know is a hit anime for all season!!!Some of younger kids who loves anime as well, really thought it was Fushigi yuugi. Much to their amazement when they realized it wasn't.
