By all intents and purposes Episode 11 was the season ender, but 12 was pretty great.

Ah if only all romance based anime could be like this. While most romance animes get sidetracked through contrived situations and have characters who act in sake of the plot rather than the other way around, Akagami should be applauded.

I give the first season a 9/10. Looking forward to the second season in the Winter.

A classic series. I hope season two can equal this. I don't want it to turn to harsher conflict, since it is the romantic love that most attracts me here, and the lovely smooth feeling of the whole show.

We can see Obi's wistful affection for Shirayuki, and the way elder brother puts the interests of monarchy and country first and last. One expects some conflict to arise from both those directions, but I hope it is used delicately. I couldn't help noticing that Zen said he wanted to have her with him, but didn't say in what role: wife, mistress, assistant, friend? I expect the possibility of a political marriage to some lady or princess to show up next season.

Fantastic seiyuu work from Hayami Saori. The OP may also be my favorite song of hers since her debut, the ED for Touka Gettan. Ever since then, I have thought of her as having one of the most purely "beautiful" voices anywhere.

It leaves me to wonder what the second cour will include. I'm hoping for a certain arc that also happens to be my favorite, and luckily I don't think they will avoid it (or at least I'm hoping they not).

Good series, I was captured by Zen and Shirayuki chemistry that never stop being good, though the series as a whole is a bit too monotone for my tastes. But well, this is usually not my cup of tea so I can't really complain

(This is just public musing and I don't want an answer.)

I wonder if Zen and big brother had their discussion about Shirayuki while on the balcony. The scene cut away as soon as brother said that he wanted to have that discussion now. I'm very curious as to what happened. Assuming that they had their conversation, Zen didn't seem devastated afterwards which I take as a good sign. Maybe, just maybe, brother has decided that Shirayuki is good for Zen and has decided to support him in what is sure to be an increasingly difficult situation for the young lovers.

Zen and Shirayuki are the best shoujo MC and romantic couple in my book. I absolutely love how they are typical shoujo but not typical at all. And the other supporting characters are equally lovable and memorable.

We can see the Obi does have blossoming feelings for Shirayuki but at the same time we also see his blossoming love/respect for Zen - he even called him "cool".

I like the subtle character personality that makes Zen and Shirayuki stand out as non-typical shoujo MC. For example, like how Zen showed jealousy that Obi gave her a gift for her hair before he could, but he didn't throw a ridiculous jelly tantrum like most shoujo MCs. Instead, he even complimented her on it. Now that is very gentlemanly of him!

I could watch this series for way more than 2 seasons...actually wish they would. This series always gives me such a calm and gentle feeling while watching it.

I, for one, have no patience to wait till January and I will be reading the manga to see what's going to happen, Kiki's flashback (if there's one) and if there's anything going on between Kiki and Mitsuhide.

Whew... I was so worried that this was it for this show. Glad to hear there's a second season for it! Can't wait for more!! I don't know but in some ways, this show is kind of like Aria. It's so relaxing to watch. Anyway yeah! Only thing missing from this show is a super cute mascot. Kind of like Ao from Yona.

Was never really into romance animes until I watched Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii but this one was fun to watch. Looking forward to season 2 in winter.
