"Saiunkoku Monogatari Second Series" - 39 episodes complete
Shurei will face many trials as an official while the Emperor will face more responsibilities and loyalty issues. The second season is basically divided into two major arcs. There will be new allies, enemies and characters who doesn't fit on either categories. Some of the bishies will also realize their feelings for Shurei. Welcome to the club! I'm really disappointed with the second season. The story is trying to be too cryptic and Shurei and Rui were apart for most of the time. I felt like it was too stretched. Plus the certain villain I was looking forward to only had a cameo. :( The third season be better be good if there will be one. The opening and closing themes songs are still the same.
