That's true only 3 of the enlightened ones have been shown. I believe there was a hint when the old doctor and adviser shou were talking they were talking about both Shurei and Youngetsu so it is possible that Shurei might be another enlightened one seeing as she does help Ryuuki alot...When Shurei's mother died she might've transferred her power to Shurei making Shurei not sickly as she was when she was younger. Also, Shurei's mother was known as "Bara-hime or Rose Princess" by Shurei's father and the mysterious Hyou Clan Leader, so...it is possible Shurei is another Enlightened one but we'll have to wait and see...

Yup. sou dayo.
Maybe shuurei too is one of the enlightened ones..maybe her mother did passed on her powers to her...
I was thinking if Ryuuren is also an enlightened one too, since later in the series he seems to possess some extraordinary abilities...

the doctor
yougetsu
the captain was it??the one who taught ryuuki and seiran about swordsmanship..??
the old person who tried to kill ryuuki on season 1...
and also the old geezer who was loyal to the previous emperor and seems to be loyal to ryuuki too...

you guys...dnt know about shuurei and ryuuren being an enlightened one..or shuurei's mother...but i thnk i'll have to agree since it was said that their are 9 enlightened ones and that they are to help the emperor..

and shuurei's okasama possessed some power ayt??
and ryuuren is also very helpful...

Ryuuren???? I never considered him a possiblitity... No...the captain hasn't shown any powers, but the two other old men who were in the same league as Advisor Shou know that Shou is an Enlightened One but, it doesn't say. Also, the Hyou clan leader is a possible Enlightened One afterall, he is immortal and he has lots of power...so maybe someone from the Hyou Clan. However these are only assumptions, the plot only tells us that Adviser Shou, the old doctor, and Youngestsu are Enlightened Ones. Hyou clan is only known for its power, and Shurei is a possiblity. I'm not really sure about Ryuuren though...it's possible but we'll have to wait and see.

i think ryou of the hyou clan (the junior) is an enlightened one.. i think it's unlikely that shuurei's mothers being an enlightened one. she's just the rose princess. and if she was an enlightened one, i don't think it was passed to shuurei, cuz must of the enlightened ones know that they are one, and obviously, shuurei is just an average sumwhat naive girl.

but aren't the 8 enlighten ones from the 8 major clans (I mean the ones with a specific color) ?

It's really hard to know who they are though, because all we know is that they have weird powers and are supposed to help the emperor (which was kind of hard for yogetsu though).

At the beginning I thought the story would be about finding them so that Ruuki can be a great emperor but this isn't really happening ...

yes i know but i'm just curious. i love a mystery. i just want to know .

i think ryuuren is not one of the enlightened ones... but he sort of possess unusual abilities like seeing spirits and the like...

but im pretty sure that the doctor, yougetsu and adviser shou and that other old man from the sa clan were one of the enlightened ones...

but i think the story didnt really focused on the eight enlightened ones... .. so never mind knowing them... haha...

I agree, although at the start of the series I really thought that they would at least dedicate some arc to the enlightend ones, since they were introduced in the kind of way that'll make you ask a lot of questions like who are they and do they still exist.....

My guesses are...

Hyou clan leader --- he's probably the king who kept the rose princess in the story.
Kou Shurei --- 'cuz she is just so special and the story is about her; also guessing that she's the rose princess
Eigetsu --- soul friend no.2 & 2.5. hahahahaha
the doctor --- very obvious
Shou taishi
Sa Taisho
The other old advisor (with the sword teaching skill)


so that's 7... I have a theory though. I truly think we haven't seen the last of Sa Sakujun --- the dark lover of Shurei. He died of poison but his body wasn't found. His whole period in season 1 expressed a lot of mystery about him up until his time of death. I'm thinking he is one of the eight and will be showing up sometime in the next season... when it comes out.
Another thought. The old guys---they might soon be inhabiting someone else's body, if there's going to be some bigger picture about Saiunkoku.


Now about Ran Ryuuren I believe he is an enlightened one as well. All his eccentricity expresses living life to the fullest; maybe he's doing so 'cuz he knows he'd be bound to a responsibility of being one of the eight enlightened ones? He considers Shuurei and Eigetsu soul friend? Quite tricky.

The other characters: Seiran, Ensei, Kouyuu, Shuuei, Ryuuki are not one of the enlightened ones but will most definitely take part of whats the big picture of the tale of Saiunkoku. Especially Ryuuki--- most likely the incarnation of he first emperor of Saiunkoku.


Well, that's just my guess...

I think the enlightened ones are the characters we least expect to be immortals, you know like the Black Wolf. I mean, it certainly didn't occur to me to think of Yogetsu as an immortal pre Season 2.

Wait and see...
