Synopsis

In the almighty Sun Kingdom, it never rains. In the Rain Dukedom, select women of the royal family have the ability to call the rain with song. So when the most powerful ruler in the world, the Sun King Livius Orvinus Ifrikia, decides it's time to take a wife, it only makes sense that he demand to marry one of the four princesses of the Rain Dukedom, an offer they can't refuse.

Nike Remarcier is the youngest of the Rain princesses, and the one who inherited the ability to call the rain. Reluctantly, she journeys from her homeland to the Sun Kingdom, but when she meets the Sun King - the man who conquered the world in three short years - Nike is stunned to find that Livius I is only twelve years old. Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii is the tale of this mismatched pair, and what happens when each discovers the other is a very different person than they expected.

There is something about this show that sets itself apart from other shoujo that have been coming out as of late. It doesn't have the best animation, nor the prettiest and well designed characters around or anywhere near an original story line that is deep. Shortly after the first episode I found that 'something'. In the areas where it lacks, it has the 'charm' to make up for it and it adds to the magical and alluring atmosphere of the series. Adapted from Dai Shiina's manga, "The World is still Beautiful" the story follows a princess from the rain principality in Nike Remercier who was read more

Romance is the oldest story in the world. The story of Romance that involving two kingdoms/empire is one of the most classic stories that ever made. Several authors write the story by giving the sweetest moment between the couple that exist in the story. And now, Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii continue the legacy of that classic era. Well, if you look deeply inside the plot, Soredemo Sekai Wa Utsukushi have the same typical romance comedy plot, but it's capable to represents the main feeling of the story itself. Soredemo succeed brings all the emotion on the screen, it has great plot although not the greatest read more

Does rock-paper-scissors determine the fate of everything? Not really but for Nike Lemercier, the fourth and youngest princess of Rain Dukedom, she’s about to find out just how much her life will change with just a game. Despite her reluctance, she is to marry the Sun King Livius, not for an everlasting relationship but for her country’s sake. Facing the problem of annexation, she travels to the Sun Kingdom for a marriage, one she thought was never meant to be. And boy, was she wrong.

First thought regarding the series primarily deals with its adaptation. The anime covers roughly 18 chapters of the fantasy shoujo manga, read more

I really feel like this anime just has a way of getting you sucked into the story. Yes it's shoujo, yes it's romance, but it's an enchanting story being told. And it's not that typical "oh well he's a king & I'm a princess" *automatically falls in love* Not even close! He threw her in jail when Livi first met Nike xD It's a story that takes place in a distant era, but it's definitely not what you expect!

Story: 8/10- What is to really admire about this story is that it's not that shoujo that's all about the romance and overly sweet moments. There's actions, read more
