Lucilar
Don't be fool by the cover everyone!! It may look like a lovely dovey manga but believe me those who think that has got it completely, and yes I repeat, completely wrong, including myself. So why?

Artwork (8):
I was slightly iffy with the artwork, it's not great but it isn't that bad. It can be rather shaky at time with characters looking rather different in every page/panel. The detail of the artwork is normal and the historical dresses are very appealing but it's not something you wouldn't have seen before if your a historical genre fan. The characters appearances do however kind of grow on you read more

If you ever wanted to see a female lead who's a brilliant tactician of politics and war with enough charisma to bring people down to their knees, both series will fulfill your wish and do it incredibly well.


-------
Joou no Hana and Song of the Long March/Chang Ge Xing/Chouka Kou both detail the life of an extremely gifted princess (Aki and Li Chang Ge respectively) who is forced into hiding after a political upheaval that she only managed to escape due to her enemies underestimating her by the virtue of her sex. Unfortunately for them, she wants revenge, and she has the skills to do it.

The main difference lies in the demographic. Both stories feature legend-worthy figures as their main lead, which leads to them being almost superhuman. Joou no Hana, being shoujo, aims to explore more of the emotional aspect of such a character. Through the perspective of Hakusei, a "barbarian" slave who is nonetheless the closest confidant and friend of Aki, the manga allows you to see not only the "future ruler" but the "human girl". Song of the Long March does not get involved as closely with the emotional weight of Chang Ge's actions but puts more focus on the details of her strategic decisions and thought process. It doesn't mean that the two series lack in either character development vs plot, but only that what the two series prioritize is slightly different. Both series are very interesting and compelling takes on a similar premise.
strong female lead
