  • 4.8 Stars - A Beautiful Story Filled With Depth, Complexity, & Unforgettable Moments
    Storyline 4.8/5
    This anime wasn't what I expected at all. I was expecting some cliche lovey-dovey story, but what I got was this complex and deep plot filled with amazing moments and surprises. This show actually seems to focus more on politics than romance. However, in both areas, it was done well. It started out pretty slow and got boring at times. But once you get to the rising action, ...

  • Kajika did not resonate with me and Reverse Harems aren't my thing
    This is not a review to praise. This is a review that contains spoilers.

    I had started this anime a year or two ago and remembered fondly of Rumaty. For that reason, I decided to restart this. It was as good and interesting as I remembered when I first watched it because Kajika was a unique personality and she stood above all those petty school girls. However, I soon remembered the reason why ...

  • Attraction, Action, and Politics all rolled into one!
    This series is beautiful and amazing! The plot has so many twists and turns, and many of the love interests are not your typical anime harem boy. All of them have a different past and different motivations that lead them. I enjoy that you get to see many countries and the multiple perspectives in this political drama. This anime becomes so much more than it first appears!

  • Loved this show so much!
    OMG! I loved this anime...It was amazing! The description doesn't even begin to describe the twistedness. While some might think the heroine is a little unrealistic, I think that she has her moments of acting her age as well. As someone who always felt out of place with people my own age I related to her.

  • Not completely romance based.
    Plot:
    Really atypical. From the description you'd gather that this is a typical reverse-harem, but really a subplot takes over, and to me, it was that much more interesting. 5/5

    Characters:
    I love the strong female lead; she's not constantly being saved by other people.
    The other characters seem well rounded, but for some I had problems, like "why would you do that at all" moments with ...

  • Just go and watch it yourself!!
    Sooooooo good! i'm going to be in love with this anime forever!

    I hate that i have to write more since all you need to know is that you should go and watch all of it. Be prepared to give up 2-4 days of your life! you'll be hooked!
    I never thought I'd find something i loved as much as Inu X Boku Secret Service or
    Kamisama Kiss. But this completely takes the cake

    Hm...twas okay, I was kinda happy it ended
    I didn't find this to be extremely captivating. It was so in the beginning, but then it kinda started going downhill. I think it's mainly because I enjoy a lot of romance in my anime, and this didn't really have any. Sure, there were candid I love you moments, but definitely not as much as I was hoping for. To be honest, I was bored by the storyline and the whole political/diplomat issue that kept ...

  • Lovely anime, just needed more episodes
    I watched all the episodes about a year ago and I enjoyed it, It was hard to watch her come to a decision and then to finally see the series come to a end. I wish it had been longer than what it was. I loved the fact that she was very smart, sweet and having a royal business demeanor and also down to earth person, an not ambitious in the wrong way. Another thing I loved about her, she acted so ...

  • god bless reverse harems
    First off i will admit the main thing that drew me to this story was the reverse harem prospect :p cause as corny and cliche as it is to have a bunch of boys all fall in love with you at once i mean come on its a cute fantasy :p lol the art was very beautiful, the opening theme is catchy to the point it almost drives you nuts. the only complaint i suppose i would have is its not really all about ...

  • Nothing Prepares You...
    ...Like the Experiences of Getting Out and Living Life To the Fullest.

    Savvy and full of intrigue as well as drama, What I at first thought would be a sappy romance to watch with my spouse turned into something totally different, sublime and wondrous. We both thoroughly enjoyed each episode's shifting political climes.

    Through the course of this series, there are episodes where you wonder ...
