Almost everyone who has seen Saiunkoku Monogatari has compared it to Fushigi Yuugi. But I think that the thing that links both series the most is that they’re both really good. Its a versatile and engaging series, if you liked The Twelve Kingdoms (I haven’t seen the series myself, but I hear from everywhere that that’s another excellent series), you’ll definitely like this one.
The story focuses on Shuurei Kou, a resident of Saiunkoku. She dreams of becoming a government official and throughout the series, we see her chasing that dream, as well as juggling love, friendship and work at the same time.
