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

Anime: Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Redhead Heroine changes the life of the hero with her kindness and special "talent". In SSwU the heroine sings and in AnSh the heroine is a healer. In both the hero is from royalty. Heart warming slow romance with slice of life that will appeal to shoujo fans.

Anime: Lovely★Complex
Yes, if you liked Lovely complex, Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii is very simmilar. Very good art, funny interesting story, includes romance, both of them are awesome. Lovely complex was my favourite shoujo anime, but now I can't decide between these two. Both girls are strong, funny and rude and boys are smaller than girls.

Anime: Saiunkoku Monogatari
While watching Soredemo Sekai, I kept thinking about how similar it was to Saiunkoku. Both anime are set in an alternative universe. The female leads are strong-willed and amazing. One of them is a fallen noble who's so poor she accepts the offer of becoming the good-for-nothing emperor's concubine in exchange for a lot of money. The other one has to become the wife of the king who's rumored to be some kind of monster who ruled the world (but he's actually a precocious brat who has lost his trust in the world). They both help the king/emperor grow as a ruler and as a  read more

Anime: Onegai☆Teacher

Both have the same cougar to tadpole kind of relationship.

Both cougars have special powers, and the tadpoles is just an ordinary boy.

Both have the same fantasy and romance genre.


One has an extra sci-fi genre while the other has an extra magic genre.

The boy in one anime is just an ordinary high-school student with a bad case of narcolepsy, while the boy in another anime is a bratty ruler.

The cougar in one anime really does maintain a romantic relationship with her tadpole, while the cougar in another anime acts like a  read more

Spoiled brat of a boy has servant help him run things. Except in Soredemo, boy has an older girl to complain to as well.

Both clearly appeal to fujoshi and female viewers.

Anime: Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
They might revolve around different gimmicks but Maoyuu and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii has a familiar mood that takes place in a fantasy setting. The main female protagonist is resilient with a tough personality for the people she cares about. At the same time, their companion or in this case the main male protagonist, does his best to deal with struggles in their world.

Both series has a decent amount of comedy, drama, and occasionally action. There is a more incentive for relationships between certain characters to develop, in particular the main protagonists. At the same time, sparks of romance is seen although  read more
