The Sakurada siblings live a normal life in a typical Japanese household. Well, that's what their father, the king, wants for them at least. As members of the royal family, each sibling possesses a unique ability, and over two thousand security cameras have been placed around town to make sure the children are safe and sound. Moreover, all nine of them have been designated as a potential successor to the throne with the decision that the next ruler will be selected through an election.

However, for the timid Akane Sakurada, the third eldest daughter who wields the power to manipulate gravity, all of this attention is a complete nightmare. With all the cameras constantly monitoring the candidates and even broadcasting their actions on the Sakurada-dedicated news channel, she decides that if she becomes king, the cameras have got to go. But just how will she convince the public that she is the most suited to rule if she can't even overcome her own shyness?! Election season is in full swing as the search for the next king begins in Joukamachi no Dandelion.

All the daughters and sons of the king
Were one day forced into competing
To see who'll take the crown
And inherit the town
It's a tough job for every sibling

So the lot of them started campaigning
With the hope of some supporters gaining
Since the people would choose
Not only who would lose
But also the next king to be reigning

They were all being watched at all hours
Everywhere except maybe the showers
They were shown on TV
For the townsfolk to see
As they exercised their super powers

Oh yes, one of the siblings could fly
And another one could multiply
One could summon a chair
As if out of thin air
If her bank account doesn't run dry

And thus read more

Joukamachi no Dandelion;in English, Castle Town Dandelion, is an incredibly enjoying and fun anime to watch. Despite the story being simple, the show manages to bring out elements of development throughout the entire series, which many animes have failed to do so.

The Story is simple. Even though the Super Power Genre has been added into the series, it was used very differently compared to other animes, the story does not revolve around the super power, but instead on the daily lives of the 9 characters. Hence, the 'Slice of Life' Genre.

The sound used in the anime befits the anime a lot, the OST read more

~Joukamachi no Dandelion~

- Story - 6 - [Supernatural is not for Action it's quite Unique]
It's a two story in one episode, but it was executed well.
The story is very Simple, but the Lessons you can get are the Hidden Message of this Anime. It's very good, the execution is well done and the plot is not all over the place.
The story is very predictable, but the characters aren't, they've changed a lot.
In terms of Adaptation over Originality, the Anime is way better, and the pacing is good.
It's an anime that focuses on Character Development and Supernatural Slice of Life, but the Hidden element of this read more

-TL:DR at the bottom, some spoilers too so watch out-

It’s not often you’ll find an anime where a cast so big is utilised so effectively, where everyone gets a decent amount of spotlight, as well as development. It doesn’t stray with excessive filler, and stays on point to the story, which is the election. With comedic elements and a little bitta eechay, the absolute best thing about Joukamachi is its characters. Each sibling is fitted with their own unique personality, design, interaction as well as powers. Although simple, their powers add much to their development, as well as make the show highly entertaining to watch, read more
