Shirayuki was a young girl born with unique apple-red hair. She meets a famous but foolish Prince Raji, who falls in love with her at first sight and orders her to become his concubine. With nowhere else to go, Shirayuki cuts her hair and escapes to a neighboring country. While traversing through the forests, she meets a young boy, Zen, who helps her after she boldly cures his wounds but then gets poisoned by an apple given to Shirayuki. Meanwhile, Prince Raji sends out henchmen to search for her. What will happen to Shirayuki? What is Zen's true character? A refreshing fantasy story between an optimistic heroine and a prince who constantly stays on her watch.

Truly a hidden gem amongst Manga. Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is like another modern rewrite of the Cinderella story, except fairy tales has never had so much sensibility, or such a well balanced relationship between the main couple (as opposed to one simply sweeping the other off their heels).

I never thought I'd see so much rationale in a fantasy shoujo manga. I mean not only is the entire cast (all of them that matters) likable, but they're all intelligent and hard-working people, whose actions are logical, and whose emotions are balanced, considered, and developed only in response to other character's actions (rather than any plot device).

I didn't give this Manga a 10 for just anything. It was was outstanding with strong-willed, intelligent, kind, and amazing characters that had their own unique build to them. What I though was ironic is because the title translates to red-haired Snow White which I thought was really creative of the Mangaka. It's different from a normal romance in any way possible because the heroine is not some weak girl that chases after the mc guy like a lost puppy but a strong intelligent one that has many surprises up her sleeve. What's also good is that there's no love triangle to cause any problems read more

I really enjoying anS the characters are really cool and they are easy to like.
What i also like is the love triangle Obi -Shirayuki -Zen its really cute and is later discovered in the manga, also the main girl character isn't weak and need protecting by the mc guy and who can not like the humor?

In celebration of discovering that Akagami no Shirayuki-hime will be getting an anime adaption, I thought it would be a good idea to write a review on the manga.

The story of AnS is set in a land and time that is a mix of a past western- and japanese society, mostly western. The clothes, the land, the buildings, the monarchy, fight-arts etc. are clearly inspired by the West. I don't think many of the manga today are set in western settings and it is a fresh breeze to have. Shirayuki translates to "Snow-white" and has no significance beside its many references in chapter 1, so read more

Manga: Reimei no Arcana
Both stories revolve around a girl with unique red hair which brings her unwanted attention. The stories also share similar fantasy-like elements such as the existence of royalty.

Manga: Akatsuki no Yona
shoujo heroines with a lot of growth potential, gaining strength and independence with the story, while the guys watch over but doesn't over-protectively interfere.

Manga: Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen
the art style is kind of the same. while i was reading ZHD, i couldn't help remember AnS. lol. there are both princes in the story (Johanne in ZHD and Zen in Ans) both the main girls are related to medicine in some way. they're both really good stories and really cute. :) i'm pretty sure if you like one of them, you'll like the other.

Manga: Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
A young girl in a mysterious land. In both series, you will discover their similarities in the essence of the characters. There is the fantasy setting with a shoujo like mood involving relationships. If you're into series with relationship building along with politics and personal struggles, both these titles should definitely be looked into. Their stories will also attract audience such as myself for their clever way of presenting its themes and style.

Manga: Black Bird
These two are similar because in both there is a person that everyone want but they are also complete different because Black Bird is about demons wanting Misao for there own reasons and is protected by Kyo just like how Shirayuki is wanted for her rare hair color and Zen protects her at the time. In both the Protecters and Protected fall in love with each other

Manga: Tobenai Majo
Both are sweet romances set in a fantasy world (sort of a quasi-medieval Howl's Moving Castle type world) led by strong female protagonists.
