Although her name means "snow white," Shirayuki is a cheerful, red-haired girl living in the country of Tanbarun who works diligently as an apothecary at her herbal shop. Her life changes drastically when she is noticed by the silly prince of Tanbarun, Prince Raji, who then tries to force her to become his concubine. Unwilling to give up her freedom, Shirayuki cuts her long red hair and escapes into the forest, where she is rescued from Raji by Zen Wistalia, the second prince of a neighboring country, and his two aides. Hoping to repay her debt to the trio someday, Shirayuki sets her sights on pursuing a career as the court herbalist in Zen's country, Clarines.

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime depicts Shirayuki's journey toward a new life at the royal palace of Clarines, as well as Zen's endeavor to become a prince worthy of his title. As loyal friendships are forged and deadly enemies formed, Shirayuki and Zen slowly learn to support each other as they walk their own paths.

A nice anime to watch if you want something chill with beautiful and peaceful scenes and with nice characters. You won't find here action, adventures, absurd "school plot twists" out of nowhere, and other cliches specific to most anime.
Yes, because Shirayuki is disliked by almost no one, the plot feels a bit forced. The relationship between Shirayuki and Zen also feels the same because of how flawless it was all the time. On the other hand, not having random jealous characters like in shōnen anime feels more natural and more pleasant to watch. Maybe we just got used to having always some kind of drama ...

Howls and growls to all my furry friends, Kiba Snowpaw here, your favorite Ice Wolf and anime connoisseur, ready to shred through another review. Having been on the prowl in the realms of anime, manga, gaming, and films since the good ol' '80s, I've seen my fair share of hits and misses, classics and clichés. Today, we're sinking our canines into Akagami no Shirayuki-hime or, as it's known in the West, Snow White with the Red Hair.

Let's start by clarifying something. Snow White with the Red Hair is about as related to the fairytale as a cat is to a swimming lesson. No poisoned apples, ...

When writing a story, you don't nessicarily have to have this amazing plot filled with plot twists and rivetting developments. Yes, many a great anime has been driven by the characters.

So when your characters suck you know you're screwed.

Yeah this was a rough one for me, especially as it was a reccomendation by someone who's opinions on anime I respect, so to realize the show was just so mind-numbingly BORING was immensly dissapointing for me. Not that there weren't good elements or I could never understand why someone might enjoy this, but those moments were padded out by meaninglessness. Where I think this show could ...
