Freshest News: Akagami no Shirayuki-hime anime and more Fushigi Yugi stage visuals

This is the announcement that they've mentioned before. The shoujo manga, Akagami no Shirayuki-hime, will be animated. The anime is slated for a summer release. From: ANN 
Synopsis: The story of the shojo manga revolves around Shirayuki, a beautiful girl working as a medicine woman who has red hair, which is very rare in her country. When she is proposed and chased after by the prince of her country, she runs away, only to meet Zen, the prince of a neighboring country. Finding respect for the young man, she decides to serve at his side as his court doctor. 
(I have reviewed this before under unconfirmed reverse harem and I haven't picked it up again. What do you think guys? Is this a reverse harem? I need to read this again.)

Manga Review: Geten no Hana

Geten No Hana (Flower Under Heaven) 3 volumes (complete) Story by Ruby Party Art by Yuka Kumada
Hotaru's special ninja skills nabbed her a mission inside Oda Nobunaga's castle. Nobunaga's inner circle includes Japan's historical figures like Akechi Mitsuhide, Mori Kanmaru, Nobuyuki Nobunaga and Hashabi Hideyoshi. 
There's only one chapter translated so far yet I'm already reeling with excitement. It's packed with gorgeous character designs, comic scenes and "ba thump" situations. All I can I say for now is I want more!  
This is based on Neoromance otome and from what I've gathered the theme is more mature compared to their previous games. The first picture above is from the manga while the wallpaper is from the otome.

Freshest News: Miaka & Yui visuals and Geten No Hana Stageplay

Here's the character visuals of Yui and Miaka for the upcoming stage play of Fushigi Yugi. Yui will be played by 27-year-old actress Naimiko Ito while Miaki will be played by 18-year-old gravure idol Risako Ito. More info on CR.    

The otome game, Geten no Hana, gets a stage adaptation that will run from May 9 to 17. 
Synopsis: The story is set in the Sengoku period of Japan. It centers around the protagonist Hotaru who is a kunoichi (female ninja) and her love relationship with famous busho (military commanders), such as Nobunaga Oda, Mitsuhide Akechi, Hideyoshi Hashiba and Ieyasu Tokugawa.

Anime Review: Brothers Conflict OVA

Brothers Conflict OVA - 2 episodes

The OVAs are seasonal-themed episodes. The first episode, "Seiya" (Holy Night), was released last Decemeber 19 for Christmas. Meanwhile, "Honmei" (Favorite or Possible Winner) went out on February 11 for Valentines. 
The brothers are divided into two groups to represent each OVA. The episodes are of course filled with the fanservices and with the brothers fighting for her attention.  I enjoyed Seiya over Honmei because the transition of the scenes and the doki-doki moments are smooth and natural. Honmei is cheesier but still it's fun. I also love how they cleverly showed Hikaru as competition in Seiya. I'm not sure if the subtitles are accurate but the "reverse chocolate" in Honmei is so meant for a reverse harem show! The ending song is another story of its own and sorry for a lack of term, it's simply perfection!

Related Titles: Hakuouki Reimeiroku, The Selection and Please Save My Earth

The following titles are not reverse harem, I repeat not a reverse harem. But I swear that they're all related to reverse harem.

Hakuouki Reimeiroku- 12 episodes
It's the prequel of Hakuouki series which illuminates the rise of the shinsengumis. The missing presence of Chizuru almost turned me into a fujoshi. She makes a cameo though at the end.  As much as I love Hakuouki, it was really hard for me to pick it up again after only watching just one episode a few years back. But I found out it was way harder to finish it. The only thing that I appreciated is that we get to see a different side of our pretty warriors most especially Souji. 

The Selection series-  The Selection, The Elite and The One by Kiera Cass
The trilogy is about America who enters the Selection to compete for the prince's hand in marriage. Think Hunger Games meets The Bachelor. But it's more of a political arena and not your typical romantic dating game. You may be wondering how this young adult bes…

News Round Up: UtaPri no to Valentine gifts and PS I Still Love You cover & release date

For the fourth year in a row, the staff of "Uta Prince No Sama" or rather Shining Agency have put up a notice that they will not be receiving gifts from fans. Probably due to the company's capacity, they've been only accepting letters. More info from CR.
