    Not your typical shoujo heroine or series
    I started watching this thinking it would be another Harukanaru toki no naka de, with a whiny willful heroine surrounded by men who just encourage it. Instead, I got the most business-savvy, aggressive, intelligent 14 year old girl I've ever seen. I fell in love. This isn't some huge romantic mess. Kajika is smart enough to know her age and is just intrigued enough to play the game that her ...

    Unique? yes. Original? not really. Reverse Harem + Anime Politics
    I only post reviews for shows I have watched completely to the last episode and I will never recommend an anime to every person because frankly, what I like may not be the same for another person. People who might enjoy this anime are fans of reverse harem shows such as Fushigi Yugi.

    Plot: For those who don't know what reverse harem genres are, it is where all important male characters ...

    Exactly what I was looking for.
    I came into the show a little skeptical but I was hooked by the end of the first episode. I don't know, maybe it was Lee-Leng's entrance. Anyway, as I watched I fell more in love with the show. The heroine starts off young but she does grow up as the story does span over several years so it's not weird by the end when she chooses. The guys are great and I loved how different all of them were and ...

    Hot Guys and Politics
    Everything about this show is absolutely enticing. The characters each have their own unique qualities that you can't help but fall for. From the unbelievably sexy and protective Li-Ren to a conflicted future king Rumaty, each one of these men has something good to offer to the protagonist of the story, Kajika. However, Kajika isn't an ordinary Shoujo girl. She's hard-headed, brave, and confident. ...

    intelligent and engrossing
    Anime doesn't get better than this. Excellent story line and plot, terrific voice acting, an anime for grownups. I just watch it again and again. Wish I could find a copy of the original comic. Wonderful.

    This beat Ouran High School Host Club
    This anime is literally the best thing I've ever seen. It's better than any other book, movie, cartoon, or anime I've ever seen, including Ouran. It may seem like your average reverse-harem shoujo anime, but it's much, much more. The plot has a lot of depth and all of the characters are complex. There's romance, political turmoil, business, and comedy in the plot. There's a prince who's a good ...

    Strangely Compelling
    At first glance, this anime didn't seem overly appealing. It has a strict 1985-1990's style going on and that really threw me off in the beginning. Considering the beautiful modern day anime style, I thought that this series paled in comparison. Boy, I was wrong. There's a lot of redeeming factors in the anime; the unique character designs, the backgrounds, the character development.. I can go on. ...

    A Must Watch For All Anime Fans!!!
    Literally, I could not stop watching this. You get so carried away with the amazing characters, great plot twists, and budding romance that you find yourself wanting more and more. I have to say that, to this day, I have never found an anime that had every element within it like this one has. There's action, adventure, drama, and a romance that falls on so many levels. It has something for ...

    Compelling Storyline, Breathtaking Art
    Instead of repeating what the summary already lays out for you, I'll go ahead and get straight into it. I recently finished watching this series and (unwillingly) was already reviewing it before it finished. However, since I finished watching it I think I can finally analyze this series, not compared to others, but within itself as a standard of anime.

    They will be rated on a scale of 5, ...

    Anime at it's finest.
    (0_0) I adore a good story with fast pace, interesting characters. Very in keeping with today's social, economic and political scenarios. You'll definitely want to take some names, kick some "compost" and malign a few person's parentage.

    Overall, characters believable, music very good, animation not completely realistic but great looking. Wish the leopard had hung around a little longer ...
