-STORY- 10/10

"I love the happiness and the suffering. Because the only emotions I feel... are the ones you grant me."

At first, Hanasakeru Seishounen appears to be a rather typical reverse harem story. Young girl surrounded by several beautiful men, nothing new for the given genre. But don't let this throw you off. Soon enough, our protagonists, along with the three marriage candidates, get involved in a complicated political conspiracy of a small Middle Eastern country. They face great dangers as they travel across the world, learn to trust and support each other, discover new emotions within themselves, and mature in order to survive and reach read more

Story (9 out of 10):

Personally, I tend to like reverse-harem animes that have good character development. To appreciate this story, one needs give it more than a few episodes. The series spends a good 10 episodes setting up the storyline and getting a feel for the roles of the characters. From here on, the story is filled with plot twists, one (sometimes 2-) dimensional political strategy and good fun that makes you want to watch the next episode....this is especially true around episode 20 when things really start getting complicated. Every episode is adds a new dimension and piece to the storyline, exploring different read more

This is my 1st anime review, so sorry if it's not that well-stated. Also, sorry if it's too long (it's hard to NOT type more when there are so much in this series). Feel free to just skim through it, and maybe skip to the "OVERALL" part if you don't want much details.

STORY- 8
The story is rather interesting + unique to me. The thought of a "marriage game" may seem kinda cheezy, but the story goes WAY more deeper than that. For a reverse harem, it actually satisfies me somewhat. It has romance, drama, mysteries, political strategies, action (Oh. NOT hardcore stuff, read more

Hanasakeru Seishounen might seem your average Reverse Harem...but what if it's not?

Story (8/10)
Unlike most other Revere Harems this one doesn't contain any superpowers, time traveling etc but it's set in nowadays current lifestyles, mainly around important people known world wide in the business world. Despite that the story is not that realistic as in a slice of life - the fact that the heroine's father turns the marriage and also future of his daughter into a game shows my point. Unlike what others said I don't think the plot starts THAT slowly but rather it's building itself trough out each episode. Don't let the read more

Recommendations

Even though it might not look it at first both anime are kind of similiar.
Both have strong-willed heroines with no physical strength, even though Shuurei is much more clever in my opinion.
Both heroines have no clue whatsoever about love.
Both turn out to be more than the cliche reverse harem and include political intrigue as well as some action and adventure.
Both series show some unexpected plot twists.
Both offer a great deal more quality than the Angelique/Hanasakeru series (thank god <.<).
Both are reverse harem.
Both are harem, one girl and bishounen guys. Another think that is similar is the wealth part (only Haruhi wasn't rich). But the difference is that Ouran is more lighter than Hanasakeru Seishounen.
In a lot of ways, these two long shoujo series are perfect for a very specific audience, and quite dull to the rest of the anime fandom. Shoujo fans that eat up soap opera-esque drama will fall in love with both of these series. Non-fans, however, will probably not get past more than a few episodes of either.

Both are reverse harems (and never pretend not to be; it's obvious that most of the bishies surrounding the heroine are interested in her) but also include a complicated plotline. They're both very dramatic, often reaching melodrama territory, in all aspects, from story to characters to relationships. Finally, they both have some degree of oldschool feel: Hanasakeru Seishounen is based on a 1987 manga; Fushi Yuugi's is from 1992.
Similarities: Strong female lead, Reverse Harem, Reverse Harem (more so in Hanasakeru Sieshounen), Drama, Some Comedy

Differences: Itazura na Kiss' settings are in high school middle class while Hanasakeru Seishounen is set in upper class political influenced by historical happenings.
Shoujo romance anime..female lead with multiple love interests..
Both are interesting shojo stories with strong, interesting female leads that are cool and inteligent
