Shuurei Kou and her friend Eigetsu To, a boy prodigy of humble origins, have been appointed co-governors of the Sa province, one of the eight provinces in Saiunkoku. Together, they decide to make the province an academic research center in the hopes of bringing a long overdue prosperity to the region.

However, while Shuurei goes to the capital to obtain approvals for the ambitious project, the Sa province's recently established tranquility is threatened by a pandemic that brings both death and turmoil as it begins to spread among the people. Counting on Eigetsu to monitor the situation until her return, Shuurei seeks support from her allies to find a suitable treatment. Yet, Eigetsu's past personal conflicts distract him, providing an opportunity for opponents of Shuurei's position to take advantage of the troubles and undermine her authority.

Becoming a government official has been Shuurei's lifelong dream, but it is no easy task for the first woman undertaking such a position. Will she step up and overcome this great challenge or give in to the looming adversities?

The second season of Saiunkoku Monogatari is even better than the first - too bad I can't rate it higher than a ten.

Story - 10

The second season starts off around where the last one ends, so I recommend you watch the first season before you tackle this one.

New enemies appear, and the clans continue to feud as always. Every detail in the story is important, something viewers should be used to by now.

Animation - 9

I really appreciated all ...

Its very interesting since you don't often see main characters which are intelligent but this one differs.The only thing that i think is wrong with this one is there long and redundant dialogs its kind a boring if you would just listen for about 30 minutes of dialog then all in an instant it ends. And the characters are very similar to that of the 'fushigi yuogi' characters. Its up to me to find out whether there creators are the same, so ill update you later.But the LOVE TRIANGLE is very ironic if you watched the first season then you'll know.Tragic yet fantastic its ...

I don't write reviews. Ever. It's an unwritten rule for me. But, I just HAD to write a review for Saiunkoku Monogatari. It was THAT good.

You know that series that you obsess over continuously like some druggie? The series that makes you even risk staying up at night and pretending to be asleep when your parents check on you but you have to watch it? It was that sort of series for me.

The thing about this anime is that it completely sucks you in. At first I was very reluctant to watch it because of the whole 'harem' thing which really annoys me but I ...
