What the hell, why didn't you guys tell me this was so good? The production value was high, the characters were all fairly interesting and the storyline worked well, and the music was top notch.

Also this is my first shoujo-type anime I've watched where I can't decide who best boy is. Zen and Obi are both based.

the show had a decent following, but remained low key for not generating alot of shit storms. it should have stood out on your radar if you tuned it to look for the usual indicators of success i.e. voice credits, director, studio (unless you're biased towards bones) etc

>>147132054
We did
But /a/ prefer to complain about trainwreck and shitty shonen

MC was so different than most of the protagonists in these kinds of shows...she was competent, had good work ethic and kept a level head in nearly every situation. She used her fucking brain and I appreciated that.

Would you a Shirayuki with wolf ears that was a travelling herb merchant?

akatsuki no yona? but we did say it was good. japan bizarrely enough thought it was Korean propaganda, though, most likely because it took place on a peninsula instead of an island nation.

This was like a 8.5-9/10 show, I loved it while it was airing. Really nice, actually had an interesting plot, and the cast was great. Bones did a good job.

Akagami no Shirayuki

I liked how the prince in the show was basically a glorified office worker and spent most of his time doing administrative shit and being shit on by his older brother. Felt kind of more what I imagine a prince's job actually is.

The stereotypical pretty boy ladies man prince is basically universally derided as a worthless piece of shit for the whole show until he starts getting his act together and learning about governance.

When we did the poll for AOTS, this was the AOTS of the only person who watched more than 30 shows that season.
I never got around to the second season

You should watch the second season, it's really good.

Zen and Obi are some of the best male 'teenage' characters in a love story I've seen. They have emotions without being whiny or insufferable, have jobs and responsibilities they just deal with rather than angsting over them, aren't weirdly sexless like a lot of male leads are but at the same time aren't driven by their boners. Great characterization.

Can't Obi just bang both of them?
>>
>>147132054
I don't know why but it seems like girls in shoujos always have shitty voices.
>>
>>147132580
It had/has a small but dedicated fanbase who loved it. The types who watched it aren't the types to shitpost in other threads. Shoujo on /a/ is a smaller group, but this leads to better discussions.
>>
what I watched of it was really comfy but I got lazy and never finished it. It overall semed kinda low-key, maybe not the ideal for generating fevered discussion
>>
>>147142441
I never really even thought of it as shoujo.
Then again my idea of shoujo is pretty much stereotypes, I haven't really read much shoujo series or anything.
>>
>>147142814
shoujo is just a label, it's not really a genre
>>
>>147139516
I guess they are more in the category of young adults

Forced overacting.
As expected of some weird prince.

The first season has better animation than the second. The second was still good though.
>>
>>147132054
Don't forget to read the manga.

Fem lead is pretty boring and charmless though.

My taste of shoujo heroines are more like Shuurei.

>>147146735
>>147146795
Tell me what you find charming about her then. I just find her your usual nice shoujo lead.
>>
It was really refreshing, The males were great and you could make cases for both of them being the best, Shirayuki being a cute and innocent topped off with a perfect OST.


I'd like more but fuck knows how they could make an interesting plot again.
>>
>>147148714
Not him, but I found Shirayuki to be alot more independent and strong like she actually had character, unlike most shoujo where the female lead is just for preteens to selfinsert.
>>
>>147134860
>most likely because it took place on a peninsula instead of an island nation.
Not only that, the character names were Korean too.
>>
Stupid sexy Zen and his stupid sexy kisses.

I want to marry Kiki.
>>
>>147132054
The guy was super hot, but I dropped this show because I ran out of time for other things. Is it worth picking it up again after all this time?

does he get shirtless at some point?
>>
>>147149716
You mean the silver haired guy?
>>
>>147149716
Yup, twice in fact.
Both in the second season.
>>
S3 when?

>>147151078
Yes
>>147151112
Picked up. Which episodes, may I ask?

>>147132054
>it's another 'why didn't you tell me this was good because I didn't lurk enough' episode

>>147132054
it's one of my favorite shows desu
I don't think I've really watched any other shoujo stuff though

>cute boys
>cute girls
>good music
>good story

it's wonderful

Because it's shit, the main character is a Sue and the plot lack of any whatsoever conflict.

The only good character was Raji because of the VA.

Probably Mary Sue.

I said it was great but everytine I did /a/ greentexted at me about it being a super generic shojo and said I have shit taste. I said it was better than OPM and was told to quit shitposting.
>>
>>147153465
>I said it was better than OPM and was told to quit shitposting.
Comparing a romance anime with a superhero anime is a dumb thing to do and can only be considered shitposting.

Would have been okay if you compared with other romance anime shows like Ore Monogatari.
>>
>>147152016
Don't remember, but there was a bath scene, as well as a scene where Zen takes his shirt off so medicine can be applied to his back.

Well if I ever needed confirmation that 'Mary Sue' on /a/ is slang for 'character I don't like' then this is it

PS Obi best boy

I'm bummed they're not going to animate the arc where Shirayuki and Obi go to that northern city and end up working on a plague

Izana was cool in that arc too
>>
Just a copy paste Akatsuki no Yona without actual plot and male MC tries to be Usui Takumi 2.0 but failed
>>
Does she ntr the prince with the ninja in season 2?
>>
i liked she she got drunk
>>
>>147158063
>Does she ntr the prince with the ninja in season 2?

The Prince is just going to sex them both

Problem solved
>>
/a/ lied to me, they said it wasn't generic shoujo.
>>
>>147158858
Well it's not a high-school romance and that's what most of /a/ think all shoujo are.

Shirayuki doesn't have a very original story but it's pretty comfy and avoids annoying stereotypes.
I found the first half a bit boring at times but the second half is less episodic and worked better.
>>
>>147146685
Since she's Akagami no Boring-hime, I don't feel bad that she didn't end up with best boy Obi or the better prince Raj. Zen and her can go and be boring for the rest of their lives.
>>
>>147132054
I get that shoujo is less popular just because gorls are into these types of things less, but I don't know why it's always forgotten. Even though there's less, there's still such a huge amount that it's not hard to find something good.
>>
>>147132054

>>147146435
Why is Hana to Yume top-tier? Most mags have a mix of good and terrible.
>>
>>147161195
You can also coutn the fact that anime threads usually take more place than manga ones: shoujo adaptation are in the minority, are often short and often with an unfinished story.

It's not totally forgotten though, we got a big shoujo thread something like two days ago.
