This has been bugging e for a while. Could someone explain to me why Shurrei and her party was sent un-escorted to her new job? COnsidering how dangerous it was why was a army sent with her? If the entire province was this close to rebellion, why wasn't the army sent?

I wondered about that, too. I guess Seiran and Ensei are supposed to be sufficient. That's one of the fantasy parts of the show. I wonder if Shuurei's father or his former collaborators are actually lurking nearby.

I just can't say enough about Kuwashima Houkou's work here. She creates such a real and vibrant personality. I certainly do hope Shuurei and Ryuuki can rule together someday -- once she's proved, to herself and others, what she can do as an official. She could do a lot as queen. This show could go on for years, following her development through her life.

Maybe it is just me reading Romance of the Three Kingdom one too many times. But you don't sent a civil Servant out to handle a rebellion. You sent a army and if anyone compliants you excute them and thier enitre familiy.

As much i like this show at ther start i can't overlook this.
I can suspend my belief in the laws of physics but i can't suspend pure logic.

that part is slightly explained in episode 28.

The truth is that the province is not in rebellion. It is only the Sa family that is causing this and that the rebeliion was not a violent one by any case. Also explained was that the sending of the two officers offered the flower by Ryuuki was a god send to the province, meaning that the confusion in Sa was acknowledged and the emperor still has faith.

Some rebellions require brute force when it's clear that the province is in warring mode. This is not the case and Ryuuki wants to find a peaceful resolution, not only to win back the province, but also to win the faith of the people. What kind of nation would u have if you simply send an army to a people that was suffering and waiting for deliverance?

Also to add, i have episode 28 screenshots + summary done.

Cheers ^+^

Great summary, makes me sad to not be able to watch the english subs yet. It seems that Shadow dreams are back tracking their subs to the earlier eps. Can't wait till they pick it up with the newer ones as it looks like 21-30 are good plots. Anyone have any idea whats going to happen when they go back to the capital.

The army can do more then just kill people in a rebellion.

1. Resotre law and order by taking over for the police
2. A sign of power form Emperor by both saying he hasn't forogttening the people in the provenice and telling the sai familiy back off I am not tolerating this crap.
3. Help protect Shurrei and other governement officals.
4. Bring other military and government officals that have been siding with the sa familiy back in line.

An army is more then a hammer, use correctly it can be swiss army knief with a dozen uses. If all else fails it can go back to being a hammer.

1. i think it's personally better that an army is not set. The fact that the army is seen as a hammer (even if it can be a swiss knife) is a fear. The Sa family is powerful but i swear that someone in the Kou clan will do something. Remember that Kou clan is the second biggest and i swear if Shuurei is in any position to be really hurt, Kou clan will go on all cylinders.

2. What will it speak of the intolerance to use a military army within your own country. Isn't diplomacy (since it's possible) a better means of solving the rebellion?

3. Shuurei is ably helped by firstly her seal of the Kou clan, the merchant guild, Seiran and Ensei (who can fight off tens of men) as well as the hidden Kou clan who is protecting them along the way. I do not think they want to draw too much attention to them. If they brought an army, it is clear that they will be direct confrontation, aka innocent citizens will be hurt. That will be a total failure of tactics. Yes, death is inevitable but sending an army is clear death of the citizens. A ruler should never step into that line unless a full blown rebellion is a certainty.

4. Yes, once again, I think that a peaceful and stealthy way is better off than sending a whole army. In a very cynical sense, if the four of them died, it's only four people lost. Ryuuki can then send an army. What is the harm in letting 4 people die? (oh god, i am so evil T_T)

I haven't started watching the series yet and wonder should I watch the Shadow Dreams subs or the We Suck subs. Shadow Dreams seems to be releasing faster though.

We Suck has taken down their earlier subs for episodes 1 -9 since the first DVDs for the series have come out in Japan, but I prefer their translations.

But I'll confess, I download Shadow Dreams' release of the newest episodes since they come out first, but as soon as We Suck puts out an episode, I snag that and delete the Shadow Dreams one!

Need help finding a Saiunkoku Monogatari Episode

I just started watching this tonight, seems pretty good, but seems like it's going to have some major flaws in the future and maybe an emotional toture with the whole love complex thing thta might happen. Does everyone later on find out that Seran (forgot how to spell the name), is the missing elder prince? I REALLY HOPE WHATS HER FACE (the main female character) DOESN"T END UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE OTHER THAN SERAN!!

Saiunkoku Characters and Seiyuus

I've made a page showing pictures of and info about characters and seiyuus in Saiunkoku Monogatari, including almost all named characters up to episode 29, which was broadcast this morning.

There are a couple of slight spoilers up to episode 20, including the answer to one of ThoHell's questions. I'll try to maintain the page and keep the spoilers moving ahead with the English subs.

In my opinion, the show is just getting better. Episodes 26-29 are particularly good. Maybe it's also that, having done the research to create the new characters page, I am now much better oriented than I was. The Wikipedia page is good.

Wow! That's a great page, and it's fantastic to see the seiyuus' pictures, too. Thanks for doing that - it helps me keep the characters straight. So many of their names are similar that I've been getting confused. Plus, trying to keep their various titles sorted out.

Good thing I went through something like this before, when I first got into Twelve Kingdoms several years ago, which has the same problem. Everyone has several names, plus their titles...argh!! I had to watch that series several times to finally figure it all out.

I check Wikipedia often, since I discovered that their info on anime series tends to be very detailed and updated regularly. Whomever is doing it, I'm certainly grateful for their hard work!

hah, as episode 29 is released on December 9th, I am able to somehow blog about it rather fast.

Episode 29 summary + screenshots is finally done!

There are a few interesting situations that happened in this episode, especially with the story of Bara-hime as well as Shou-taiho.

Thanks for that page on Saiunkoku Monogatari, I used it as a bit of cross reference for my summary just to make sure I do not confuse names as usual. All the names often make me go @_@

Watching this series is giving me magnitude 10 frustration.

My desperate message to Shuurei: Please stop being so blind, Ryuuki is really a good man.

Its not like she's blind IMO, she just wanted to show how capable she is, being a queen means she's kinda tied up from chasing her dream.. I think thats how she sees things.

But yea.. I'm hoping she choose Ryuuki as well.. the title Queen of Saiunkoku befits her.
