Saiunkoku Monogatari - Dropped after too much hesitation to actually do it
When I watch anime where an army of bishies talk like it's their last day things tend to be boring, usually series like that needs tons of SD faces or some sort of emotional attachment which don't happen too often. SaiMono lacks both and to make it worse I'm not fan of Chinese settings. I would rather take modern world used for example in Nana when it comes to stories about independent women. Music also feels too forgettable.
Some good point(s) exist though. Shuurei is great character and I have tried to keep watching SaiMono because of her while waiting that the plot becomes more interesting later. But with not so good results. If I watch this half-heartily without getting much in return it's just pointless waste of time. So yeah, I drop this now.
