The World Is Still Beautiful is a shoujo fantasy romantic comedy-drama set within a fictional land where a princess of the Rain Dukedom named Nike is arranged to be married to the Sun Kingdom's young ruler Livius in order for the Rain Dukedom to maintain its sovereignty. The series is mainly focused on the growing bond between Nike and Livius, exploring Livius' traumatic past and exploring the political hostilities that erupt among both factions in response to the marriage.

The biggest strengths to this series come in the nice amount of exploration it offers up to with Nike and Livius' lives. In spite of its 12 read more

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 a 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

Soredemo sekai wa utsukushii ( The world is still beautiful ). As described on the tittle,this anime really portrays the beautiful side of the world. At first glance,it just looks like your typical prince and princess get together life happily ever after shoujo anime,But don't let your first impression fools you. This show is more than that,it is an outstanding anime indeed

Romance is the oldest story in the world. The story of Romance that involving two kingdoms/empire is one of the most classic story 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 represent the main feeling of the story itself. Soredemo suceed brings all the emotion on the screen, it has great plot although not the greatest read more

Recommendations

Similarities:

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.

Dissimilarities:

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 mother figure to her tadpole.
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.
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 person while growing themselves.

And this might not be relevant, but both anime have one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.
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 more prominently in Soredemo. I recommend both series for anyone interested in a fantasy series that expands beyond just the classic sword & magic fighting tone.
((based on the first episode))
-heroines get swindled at the beginning
-heroines are both traveling and trying to save their village/country
-share the adventure & fantasy genres
-have child rulers (Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii = king, Akame ga Kill = emperor)

difference : SSwU = more on the romance side as to AgK has more violence and blood
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.
