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)

 Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self.
The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. 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. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.

I finally watched the anime and I love it!!
I read the manga last year, absolutely loved it, and the anime was perfect too <3
The story is good, the charas are funny and kind, especially Hagita and Suwa. Omg, I love Hagita xDD he's sooo funny!!
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.
