Anime: Snow White with the Red Hair (Akagami No Shirayukihime)


PLOT:

Shirayuki is a normal herbalist citizen in the kingdom of Tanbarun with one unique feature: her beautiful red hair. Due to her unusual hair color, Shirayuki was raised to always be careful of showing her hair in new surroundings and grew to be an independent young woman. However, her hair gets her noticed by Prince Raj, who orders her to become his concubine. Refusing his orders, she cuts her hair and escapes to the neighboring kingdom of Clarines. On her way there, she meets and befriends Prince Zen and his two aides Mitsuhide and Kiki. When Zen is poisoned by an apple meant for her gifted by Prince Raji, Shirayuki successfully obtains the antidote and decides to accompany the trio to Clarines. Shortly thereafter, Shirayuki passes an exam for a position to train in the palace as a pharmacist. Shirayuki and her friends find a place in Clarines and carries out her duties as a court pharmacist. Over the course of the story, Zen and Shirayuki begin to fall in love with each other and eventually begin a romantic relationship, in spite of opposition due to their difference in social status.

SEASONS: 2 EPISODES: 24 (12 EPISODES EACH SEASON)

THERE IS TALK OF A POSSIBLE 3RD SEASON, BUT NOT ANNOUNCED YET!

GENRE: DRAMA / FANTASY/ ACTION / ROMANCE

FAVORITE CHARACTER:

Prince Zen Wisteria has to be my favorite character of course. I love white haired anime characters and the prince appearance makes him 1,000x more attractive. Even though he is a Prince, he doesn't act like one sometimes. He loves to go outside and go on adventures. So, he will sometimes escape the castle to have some freedom from the Prince life and one day he jumps over a wall near a forest and Shirayuki happens to be at the bottom of that wall. They have straight eye contact as he jumps down and it's a magical first moment for them. Zen is surprised by her beautiful red hair but then asks what she's doing there and thus their story begins. Zen is a kind Prince and completely different from other Princes. He is noble and will stand to protect Shirayuki no matter what. He would choose her over his Prince life. He is so adorable and funny. I love everything about his character and he will make you squeal in the 2nd season of the last episode, no doubt about it. I never actually squealed as hard as I ever have until I saw that kiss! >_< BTW his brother Izana isn't too bad looking either... ;) (last picture)

SIDE CHARACTERS:

Mitsuhide - Is a strong, loyal and kind attendant of Zen. He once worked under Zen's older brother Izana but Izana told Mitsuhide to work for Zen because he knew that he would never betray him and stay loyal. Mitsuhide is noble and dense. Kiki - Is a beautiful girl who also works for Zen alongside Mitsuhide. She is smart and straightforward with everyone. She is willing to do anything to help. Mitsuhide and her have a special connection and I ship them along with many others. Obi - Was once a bad kid but once he enters the Palace and meets Shirayuki he changes for the better and never wants to do bad things ever again. He falls for Shirayuki but never admits it. He is kind in his own way and is protective. Obi is always catching people before they fall.

FEMALE LEAD:

Shirayuki is known as Snow White based off the title of the anime Shirayuki meaning "Snow White". She was born with naturally beautiful hair as red as an apple. Her dream is to become a Herbalist and it's her passion that she has been studying ever since she was young. She even had her own shop until one day a Prince showed up and wanted her to be her concubine because he loved her hair. So, that night she cut her hair and left a lock of it on a table in her shop and left to set off on a journey away from there. She ran away and entered a forest in Clarines, then she found Zen. She entered his castle and became an apprentice to become an Herbalist. Shirayuki is a bright, lively, kind, smart and caring ray of sunshine. I love her character so much. She is willing to forgive and forget even if the person did something awful to her. She is that kind of person. Admirable and loving. That's why Zen fell in love with her first and so did many other guys.

ZEN X SHIRAYUKI!

I ship this couple so hard! The moment their eyes met for the first time, I was set on this couple. The way Zen looks at Shirayuki is pure love in his eyes. It's so cute when they blush around each other. Shirayuki is scared that she will damage his image of being a Prince but he denies that will ever happen. He lets her know that he will always protect her. The way they hold one another in each others arms is so sweet and their kisses are so pure and cute. I love how Zen kisses her unconsciously the first time and Shirayuki is standing there like WTH just happened. Then he's like I'm sorry it was an instinct. XD I love them so much. And the kiss scene in the last episode has to be my favorite when he kisses her neck then kisses her. I literally squealed and died 100 times. It was too cute.

MUSIC?

I enjoy the Openings, their colorful and fun to listen to. I like the 2nd Opening more but that's just me, I like the vibe and sound of the singer. Also its really pretty! I think I liked the 1st Ending song the best from the whole soundtrack. It's fun to listen to and it kind of reminds me of a Please Twins song which I love. Not trying to compare but it gives off that sound and vibe. The 2nd Ending song is really slow but the animation is pleasing to look at. Overall it has fun music.

FAVORITE / FUNNIEST SCENE:

Mitsuhide is Hypnotized! In this episode Mitsude smells a herb potion and it hypnotizes him. He becomes strange and says weird things. He bumps into Kiki and catches her hand. He says some strange things and she keeps a straight face but I couldn't. I was dying of laughter.

OVERALL REVIEW:

I loved the whole show and I honestly liked the 2nd season so much more than the 1st. It was more intense and interesting. Also a lot cuter! >.< I loved the animation for this anime so much. It was really colorful and bright. No dull character in sight. The way their eyes glisten and sparkle is so beautiful. I love this animation probably more than "Your Lie In April" even though it had gorgeous animation. The characters animation in that anime was still a little much for me. But this one is more natural and beautiful. The way the characters flow and move across the screen is graceful and pleasant to watch. I loved all of the characters in their own way. Especially Zen and Shirayuki. The storyline is really different and I love the idea of a girl who is born with a unique colored hair as red as an apple. It's her hair that is eye catching to most characters because it's so beautiful. Also she's a commoner who falls for a Prince and no one thinks that she sincerely loves Zen but she does and he loves her. Most people said just because she has unique hair doesn't mean she is special enough to marry a Prince. She must be of nobility. But this couple doesn't care and at first Zen's brother tried to split them up but he ends up rooting for them in hopes of something interesting. Even the guards in the castle cheer this couple on! This is one amazing and beautiful anime that most fans are rooting for another season because we want to see the couple get married and see so much more. It has a great ending and can be stopped there but we want more!!!

RATE:

9/10 - This was definitely great fantasy/romance and action anime full of adorableness. I fully recommend to all of the romance lovers or if your into fantasy because this one is for sure a cute one to watch.

Have you watched "Snow White with the Red Hair", and did you like it?
