Akagami no Shirayuki-hime  
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is a Japanese shōjo manga written by Sorata Akizuki. It was serialized in Hakusensha's bi-monthly shōjo manga magazine, LaLa DX but has since moved to monthly LaLa and is published in collected volumes by Hakusensha. An anime adaptation produced by Warner Entertainment Japan, Hakusensha, and Studio Bones aired in Japan between July 6, 2015 and September 21, 2015. A second season began airing in Japan on January 11, 2016.

Shirayuki is a normal herbalist 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 leaves it behind as part of what he wanted 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 Shirayuki gifted by Raj, 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 herbalist. Shirayuki and her friends find a place in Clarines and carries out her duties as a court herbalist. 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.

It's been a while since I wanted to watch Akagami no Shirayuki-hime and I don't regret watching it.
There're 2 seasons and a OVA.
AkaHime is a typical shoujo anime. There are some romance, some action, the girl who likes the prince and bad guys kidnapping the girl.
If I were to compare AkaHime to another anime it'd be Akatsuki no Yona.
My favorite charas were Obi and Mitsuhide.
Especially Obi. He's precious *3* love him so much. I even added him on my bias list xD
The anime has funny parts too. Especially in the 2nd season between Mitsuhide and Kiki, and Mitsuhide and Obi.
When Mitsuhide gets hypnotized by a drug Kiki's face was sooo funny xDDD
And the ep. where they go to an inn bc of the rain, Obi and Zen are taking a bath... this part was funny too.
I really recommend this anime :) if you like romance and shoujo.

Scored: 8.0(both seasons)

High Speed! -Free! Starting Days-  
 Haruka Nanase feels something special when he touches water. The medley relay was the last competition he was able to participate in during elementary school. Haruka, along with Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka, saw something they'd never seen before. In spring, with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Haruka moves on to Iwatobi Middle School with Makoto and starts a new life. Both enter the swim team, and plan to compete in the medley relay together with Asahi Shiina and Ikuya Kirishima.

Sangatsu no Lion  
Sangatsu no Lion is an ongoing manga series by Chica Umino, best known for Honey and Clover. It began serialization in Hakusensha's seinen manga magazine Young Animal from its fourteenth issue in 2007 (published on July 13, 2007).
Hakusensha aired a television commercial announcing the series on numerous Japanese television stations, also posting it on its official website.

An anime television adaptation by Shaft aired between October 8, 2016 and March 18, 2017 on NHK, with a second season scheduled to premiere in October 2017. A two-part live action film adaptation of the same name is scheduled for release in March and April 2017.
The series is set in Tokyo, following the everyday life of a 17-year-old shōgi player, Rei (lit. "Zero"). Umino based the setting of Sangatsu no Lion on research she conducted herself, whereas she was already familiar with the setting for her earlier work, Honey and Clover.

The protagonist Rei is a 17-year old professional shōgi player, who lives by himself, not having a real family, and has scarcely any friends.

Especially the cast. Loved the seiyuus they chose to be in this anime <3
Well, the anime is also about shougi, so if you don't like shougi then it's not an anime for you ^^''
I don't mind bc I like to play chess xD
If you don't mind it then I recommend :)

My favorite charas were Momo(she's so cuteeeeee) and Smith-san(Sugitan voiced him).

The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future.

Suwa is my fav chara in the manga *-*
I suffered all over again bc of Kakeru and Naho, and Kakeru alone T^T so sad!

I prefer the manga version. The art is better and the charas in the anime were a bit different, kinda weird sometimes, in some parts of the anime. I think it was their smile, don't know...
I highly recommend :D both manga and anime
I can't wait to watch the movie.
