too bad, it's shoujo dear


Hey, I've watched/read shoujo with limited sappy romance in it. A shoujo doesn't have to give you emotional diabetes.


Well said.

Episode 2: Following the Sound of Your Heart

Shirayuki is definitely one of the more strong willed female characters out there. Attempting to escape rather than crying and yearning for Zen to come save her as if she was calling for him. She is independent and strong and I like that.

Seems like Shirayuki will only bring about more trouble to herself as long as she has that red hair. Everyone wants to have it or have it in their possessions since its rare. She is going to need some bodyguards soon.

I also like how Zen and Shirayuki can have a decent normal conversation without getting all flustered about the smallest things. Even when she said 10 seconds, or when he said 5 was enough, they didn't burn up. They just smiled. That's what normal people do. Smile. That was great.

Great development on Shirayuki's character this episode, and I am looking forward to more and hopefully seeing Zen get some of his past revealed.

I'm kind of sensing a pattern here. Now let me guess: Will the next episode feature Snow White being cornered by some bad evil dude because of her hair? Will it have her trying to escape only so she could fail and be recaptured? Will Prince Something show up and rescue her, although he really shouldn't be able to? If it does I might drop this faster than a hot rock.

It's certainly on the chopping block. They are really pushing this romance on us like crazy. Moving pretty fast, aren't we? Well, they are two attractive people, what else is there to do, play golf? It's also quite funny how Snow White wants to be independent and do her own thing, but the show just won't let her do that and constantly pushes her back into the role of the damsel in distress. Just give that girl a break and let her collect some goddamn herbs without running into a wild pervert.

I like the eyes though. Those are beautiful.

Snow white is a female protagonist who can defend herself reasonably well without going ''I know kung-fu''

We need more characters like this.

don't worry,the romance is limited and not sappy at all and there is a lot of focus on both zen and shirayuki's professional hurdles, which imo is really refreshing.

She knows herbalist-fu which is both fun and refreshing I agree.

Who doesn't like a strong intelligent female lead part? She is pretty cool and has a charm that gravitates in her actions. I like this new show a lot the second prince is a great new friend in new country and I see this show becoming my favorite of summer easy well written zero fan service great animation style with mountains and ocean scenery music is good too!

All in all, this is a good adaptation. Good scenery, voice acting, and colors!

As someone who has read the manga, in my opinion the series is a beautifully crafted manga that emphasizes romance and professional struggles.

The character relations and interactions truly are magnificent.

Episode 3

While Zen and Shirayuki are meant for each other, there are some in the castle who don't approve of their relationship, namely Lord Haruka. He goes around impersonating Zen saying that Shirayuki is not to be allowed into the castle, all while feeding Zen's head with crap about being used by her, which is not true at all. But of course, Shirayuki is out to prove that those weren't Zen's words at all, and it turns out that Obi was the one who did all this with the message on the arrow. It goes to show that nothing can come between those two even if their social statuses couldn't be any more different.

Episode 3


Great episode.

First, it showed how courageous Shirayuki is when she stands up against Haruka in the face of a sword. Then, there's her own determination to become a professional herbalist. I also think she and Zen has a very nice chemistry so far that goes beyond the typical romance generics. We'll probably see Obi again soon too but I like his personality so I hope we will.

And I'm hoping this episode will get some more folks on the bandwagon of both Shirayuki and Zen as separate individuals. That scene with the lord pointing his sword at Shirayuki had me cheering for her ( I knew she wouldn't back down from the lord, but it's good for other folks to see it whom haven't read the manga). Also, she wants to be a court herbalist and to be able to stand next to Zen not because someone has given her that ability, but because she has earned the ability to stand next to Zen on her own merits. I love characters like this who don't want a hand out or things given to them. Who have to struggle and overcome adversity. We've seen enough anime where the female MC is made to seem totally dependent on the male MC and this story is a refreshing kick to the ass of that "damsel in distress" folks like to use. Also, props should also be given to Zen. He could have just as easily confronted the lord himself and told him to leave Shirayuki alone, but he respected Shirayuki's decision to confront whomever was trying to keep Zen and her apart on her own. Albeit, he was eavesdropping on their conversation your typical anime would have had Zen jump out to the rescue when the lord was threatening Shirayuki with his sword drawn, but he waited until the situation looked resolved.

Yea, I may be fan-girling over these two, but it's refreshing having two characters like this.
