In the Sun Kingdom, sunshine is part of its citizens' everyday lives, and rain is something that they have never even heard of. However, in a faraway land called the Rain Dukedom, the weather is reversed, and everybody has the power to create rain with their voices.

Livius Ifrikia has conquered the entire world and expanded the Sun Kingdom's influence in the three short years since he was crowned king. Upon learning about the powers to create rain, Livius decides to marry Nike Remercier, one of the princesses of the Rain Dukedom. However, those outside the Sun Kingdom have spread a rumor that Livius is a cruel, ruthless, and tyrannical ruler, and as word reaches the princess, she begins to prepare herself for the worst. But when she finally meets her fiancé, Nike discovers that he is an entirely different person from what she originally expected.

Such a great anime when I thought there was enough romance anime. I thought I have watched already the best of romance animes like your lie in april etc but this was such a hidden gem. I liked idk what to call them but the random dialogues like the last one that said I will fall in love with you again or something. Finally another romance anime done right definitely up there along horimiya. The story wasn't the typical kinf and prinecess married getting kids i mean my man Livi literally threw Nike in jail when the first time they met

Mixed Feelings
Even though I'm into female protagonists, The World Is Still Beautiful feels like a mixed bag in my opinion. It has its moments of giving me a good impression, but it also has parts that could've been better or things that could've been in it.

The story is very interesting. It is centered on two countries in a fantasy world: The Sun Kingdom and the Rain Dukedom. Hey, admit it. You actually thought the latter nation was going to be called the Moon Kingdom the second you first read "Sun Kingdom." The Sun Kingdom is ruled by King Livius Orvinus Ifrikia and under his reign, he ...

If the process of having an identity disorder could be physically condensed into an anime this would be that anime.

Never have a seen a story that knows less what it wants to be. Characters veer wildly between being good guys and bad guys, not in a realistic grey area way, but in a "flipping between extremely cartoonish poles" way. Characters will be attempted rapists one episode then become a silly comic relief guy later. Characters will be painted as evil and trying to control Nike and then turn around and be extremely genuinely written like "we were just worried about her." The biggest flip is ...
