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)
