It's definitely one of the underrated animes out there.

Not your average reverse harem. Kajika, the main character is a strong heroine and you can't help but love her. Also, the characteristics of the guys surrounding her are very intimidating but you will come to love their uniqueness. Although it does not have the comedic ingredient that i usually go for, it's very heartwarming.

It's a 9/10 for me!

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

Give this anime more than a few episodes and I think you'll love it!
I must admit, at first I found this show only mildly interesting and the plot a little ridiculous. I mean, a father tasks his 14 year old daughter with picking a husband from the men he has chosen for her?! Not exactly realistic. I rolled my eyes the first episode or two, but it got such good reviews I decided to finish. I'm so glad I did!
Without giving anything away, I'll say that there's a deeper reason why the heroine of the series is tasked with picking a husband. Also, with every read more

-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

Anime: Saiunkoku Monogatari
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.

Anime: Akatsuki no Yona
Both has a girl as the main character that are forced to accept a cruel world and must deal with politics and their own feelings in order to achive their goals and meet everyone's expectations. The action in Akatsuki no Yona takes place in the past and the main character doesn't really have to pick up a guy, while the action in Hanasakeru Seishounen takes place in the present and the main character must choose the guy she loves the most. The most probably guy to be chosen in both animes has a great personality.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
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.

Anime: Fushigi Yuugi
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  read more

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.
