I was thinking that it is surprising that this story hasn't been made into a live action drama by now. Certainly, the storyline is suited be be made into one of those ancient drama shows. I would certainly watch it even though I haven't watched one of those ancient chinese drama shows in ages. If this happens, I hope the HK film studio does it since they seem to have better cinematography. Although most likely, TW film studio will do it since they seem to do all shows based off of mangas such as The Devil Within and It started with a Kiss, etc.

A TVB (Hong Kong's largest television studio, Wikipedia link here )x Taiwanese TV studio co-production, perhaps?

Although if TVB gets the broadcast rights to the anime itself in Hong Kong, they would probably re-dub the OP into Cantonese, as they are wont to do for about 4 out of 5 anime shows that they get the Hong Kong broadcast rights for...

I agree, a live action drama from TVB would be awesome. But is it just me or are they starting to fail because mainland China's productions are becoming far more superior in all aspects.

But yeah, it'd be cool to see this as a live action drama that's actually a fantasy.

Personally I don't any of the live action that has come form HK or taiwan. All the stuff I seen so far stinks. I rather the live action form the 80s then any of the crap they put out these days with actors that can't act, directors that can't direct and writers that haven't written anything original(good) in 30 years.

The hk/taiwan/mainland tv will probably butcher the show by trying to rewrite it so they can say they improve it.

I've updated the hashihime Saiunkoku Characters' Faces and Names page.

As for a live drama, I'd watch it for sure, but the fact that this is a fantasy setting rather than being set in the real Chinese past removes one of the selling points of those shows, so it may not be of as much interest to producers.

Although it's a fantasy not actual historical ancient China, I think it would still work since Saiunkoku is based off of ancient China. I mean look at some of the ancient China movie drama and most of it is so dramatized and mythical that it might as well be a fantasy. (Because no matter what anyone says, no way can people fly/leap from building to building. IF that was the case, I would hire a bunch of those people to be my message couriers if I was the King. It would have been faster than modern day's FedEx. LOL )

In any case, while I wait patiently for the fansubs (Great thanks to We Suck and please continue to fansub till the end), I wish I could read the novels (there's already 10 out!). Can anyone tell if the novels are in japanese or they also in chinese?

For Codex:

If you like Ryuuki's relationship with his brother Seiran, there's a cute ministory in the CD dramas which provides a flashback to when the brothers first met each other and their feelings regarding that moment. It's very touching

CD drama spoiler (maybe?):

OOOOH! That's sounds so beautiful. Is this the "Ogon no Yakusoku" Drama CD (it's the only one released so far on cdjapan)? Hopefully the Japanese isn't too difficult ... I wish more people would translate Drama CDs like that one Twelve Kingdoms drama CD.

I also love this series. The style made me think of Fushigi Yugi (as other people mentioned) although the story is entirely different... and to my utter relief, no annoying personalities yet!

So far, only 7 subbed episodes are released (Thank you so much, [We Suck]! You are fantastic!) I am one of those people who likes to buy anime series that I enjoy. Anyone know if the actual anime, subbed in English, is available to buy? Preferably the entire series.

I think its great so far, though I'm having trouble understanding what is/and what was going on between the two elder advisers, the one who changes appearances, and the one who died... can anyone enlighten me?

If it was (legitimately), we wouldn't be subbing it.

shucks... couldn't help hoping.

The subbing so far by [Suck] is great...

I have Noir (one of my favorite series), both the downloaded versions (fan subbed) and a store-bought version. I'll never get rid of the downloaded versions, and I'll never watch the store bought version... the subtitles on the store version are grammatically incorrect, mis-spelled, and terrible to read. What a waste of money! Like I said, I like to support good anime by buying it when it comes out in the store, but a lot of the stuff in the store has awful subtitling. Hopefully Saiunkoku will be a better release whenever it makes it to the stores.

In the meantime, you fansubbers are my heroes!

We Suck Fansubs releases scriptpacks to go alongside the DVDs that are released in Japan, to encourage people that do buy DVDs to consider importing them from Japan. This allows for viewers to view our subtitling work even if the discs themselves have no subtitle tracks. So please do consider importing the DVDs of Tale of Saiunkoku when they become available in Japan.

So says the unofficial marketing lackey of We Suck Fansubs, anyway.

Unhappy Episode 8?

So I was watching
Saiunkoku Monogatari on youtube and it seems that its only available to episode 7. So i left off where Shuurei leaves the palace and before she does she is kissed by the emperor. I want to know what happens next. Is ther anywere else on line I can watch the remaining episodes or is it worth it for me to by copies of the series from sellers on ebay? Though the mentioned copies for sale only include episodes1-8. Is that all there is. Please share your knowledge of this series with me.
