Saiunkoku Monogatari (Tale of Saiunkoku or The Story of Saiunkoku or Colourcloud Palace or Tale of Many-Coloured Clouds)- Season 1-39 episodes, season 2-25 episodes and ongoing based on Sai Yukino's manga
Shuurei joins the imperial harem to teach the stupid emperor. It's the beginning of her journey to reach her dreams and ambitions to help build a peaceful and thriving kingdom of Saiunkoku. This is currently my no. 1 favorite anime! It's like the modern counterpart of "Fushigi Yuugi" for me. The story is well-written and each episode has a proverbs theme. I'm also torn between Ryuuki and Sakujun. Sigggghhh! It will be showing in Animax soon but the title will be "Colourcloud Palace". I didn't watched it right away because I read somewhere that it's a Sunday morning anime in Japan, so I thought it will be like "Fruits Basket". But I'm glad I did because all the previous reverse harem animes I've watched paled in comparison. The opening is so dreamy that it makes me nostalgic with the previous episodes and makes me eager for more romance overload.
