Yes! Good news!

And hmm ... a shoujo adaptation by Bones, eh? Interesting....

For those not familiar with the series the link has a brief summary:

Quote:
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 a major weakness for anything that might have a fairytale motif in its story. The staff looks great, and the artstyle's pleasant, so.. colour me interested.

Not the genre I would have preferred.

I have a strong hunch this won't be for me.

A Shoujo fantasy from Bones? With Saori Hayami and Ryota Ohsaka as the leads? Those are pretty good on their own, and judging by some reaction it sounds like the source material is quite enjoyable as well so I'll definitely be checking it out .

I'm sure this will be very nice, but I'm just so disappointed that it seems every new shoujo stuff we get is either a sweet fantasy romance or yet another high school romance with all the clichés. :/ (I suppose there's Kuroshitsuji, and Yona which technically has a plot aside of being a fantasy romance.)

There's so much more to shoujo manga than this... why can't we have an adaptation of a shoujo horror manga, or a mystery or a dark fantasy or basically anything that is not cute and and not set in a high school or *gasp* is not a romance... (<- rhetoric question)

For some reason this plot synopsis reminded me of the Histoical K-drama series "Dae Jung Geum" or its English title "Jewel in the Palace".

Though I don't expect this to be anywhere near as good since that given it's the anime medium meaning it'll have shojo tropes and I don't think it'll have the political intrigue that Dae Jung Geum had (nor the benefit of 1hour x 50+ episodes) it is very pleasant to see this renaissance of shojo adventure stories as of late. This is also by Bones no less, one of my personal favourite studios.

BONES, Ando, Oshima, and a manga which showed great promise from the first few chapters I read a bunch of months ago. I'm absolutely thrilled. It's gonna be great having the Oshima + Ando combo back too. Can't wait :')

Black Butler isn't technically published as a shoujo manga though due to its serialization on G-Fantasy, a shounen manga magazine.

Seeing this announcement made me feel like I'm really welcoming more of the fantasy-based shoujo series since I actually like that kind of genre out of the demographic the best. With SoreSeka already incredible enough, Yona of the Dawn ending up into something positive and Bones doing a okay job at shoujo manga adaptations, making it into a successful series is guaranteed.

Ouran is one of my favorite BONES shows. If the original material is anywhere as good as Ouran, this could be something special.
Is this any fun though? Ouran had me dying of laughter. I don't expect this to be as funny, but it'd be great if this show has good comedy as well.

Last time I looked it up it was classified as a unisex mag... so yeah, technically it's not "shoujo-shoujo" but it's the kind of dark fantasy you can see in some shoujo magazines.

I read a few chapters a while back but just couldn't get into it and gave up pretty fast. But I think that's because fantasy world shoujo just never seems to click with me and Studio Pierrot's recent attempts to convince me haven't worked either. But I'm more than willing to let BONES have a shot.

This looks to be yet another samey shoujo romance masquerading as a fantasy show. Akao, Oshima and Takahashi have all done good in the past, so that's something.
