I went through the thread index and I didn't see this topic on there. I have just finish this seasons last episode and I found it bittersweet and romantic,and also a bit encouraging too. May contain spoilers. So be warned.

I hope that in this thread, we fans can voice our likes and dislikes. Rant about our sorrows or disappointments. Think up funny things and quotes that made this shoujo anime so compelling. Also, give it a fan service that it deserves. I really enjoy this series right from the very beginning and I really encourage people to check out this particular series. The second season I believe will start this spring. . .We don't have long to wait of course. If you want to learn more about it here is an official Link:

I thought epi. 39 was heartwarming and bitter. . .I never knew how lonely Ryuuki can get in the palace. But, I don't sense a chemistry between Shuurei and Him. Not like that guy from the Sa clan. . .I don't want to butcher his name. And I really thought the bond between seiran and her is good too. . .It could be more.. .I don't know if it will though. But ryuuki's feelings are so pure and heartrending. . .
"We'll wait for you. . .forever" Ahhhh. . . .love. . . .I wonder what will happen next. . .

Actually it isn't like Fushigi Yuugi at all. . .Doesn't have anything mystical about it. . .Well, not much at all if you count the celestial beings who try not to interfere with the story. It is basically about a young girl who became the first female official and governor to a province call Brown. Anyway, it is the opposite of a Shounen, where a guy protagonist achieves his dream. .. while this is about a girl.

If you love historical settings with an intelligent girl who works hard to bring change to the country of Saiunkoku then it is right for you. Plus, the guys in this is HOT! To my disappointment there is not much romantic scenes but enough to keep many fans like me wonder who she'll end up with. ..

well, this last episode I thought was sweet yet it struck sadness in me. Doesn't anyone feel that way? Shuurei realizes about alternatives, in which love and career can co-exist. The sad thing though is that Shuurei is the only person who can do this.

Ryuuki cannot, not when he is the king of an empire.

It is sad but his road is meant to be a lonely one, one in which has been said in the episode. Even though he wished to be just regarded as Ryuuki and not as an emperor, the fact that he is working hard for the nation meant that the distance between him and the common man is increasing faster than anything else.

He is the emperor. He still feels, he still knows hurt, he still has emotions, he still has pain. Shuurei is just about the only person that can help him. That is perhaps why Ryuuki is willing to wait for her. (on a side note: I root for Seiran and Shuurei but Ryuuki is very close behind him)

Have any of you thought episode 35 was sad and touching? I think I fell in love with Sakujin even though he was such a vicious guy but I thought his love for Shuurei was all consuming and real. . .I think Shuurei might have fallen for him herself only held back because he was a bad guy. Well here is a pics I got from saimono. .. The pics are awesome. .. I thought the kiss scene was so sad and I felt sorry for him. . .that he went in such a way. . . .

Tale of Saiunkoku seaspn 2 has started and now it's latest episode is 5 raw while episode 1 has been subbed by We Suck. I really enjoy it.

Ryuuki cute little boy expression was so adorable when he daydreamed about that time in episode 39. There are some new characters coming into season 2 now. Like i said in the other thread, Shuurei is starting to gather a Harem. But We find out this season that the Kou clan would like her to stay within their circle and are considering Kouryu to marry her. What is everyone's though on that?

It's licensed now... no more fansubs from "We Suck"... or any other subber, I don't think

Crap.

[Edit: This is referring to the 2nd season, however all torrents for their previous releases of this show (1st and 2nd season) have been taken down]
