Ta~daaa! Another side of me that most people don’t know is; I’m an ANIME LOVER! like seriously fan-anime!
Well, the genre that I often go after are romance, fantasy, shoujo, & comedy. So, today I would like to give a review about this anime entitled; Soredemo Sekai Wa Utsukushii or in English means The World Is Still Beautiful.
“Nike, the fourth princess of the Rain Dukedom and one who holds the power to call forth the rain, travels to the Sun Kingdom to marry Sun King Livius for her country, despite her own reluctance. She soon discovers that the King, who conquered the world in only three years after his ascendance to the throne, is still a child! Furthermore, for trivial reasons, he has demanded that Nike call forth the rain..?!”
Reading the synopsis itself shows that the story is different than other love stories. Both main hero and heroin have their own unique characters. King Livius/Livi is a very strict and cold-hearted ruler but protecter despite his age who can be consider as a child! Due to his past, had made him to be such King.
Nike Lemercier/Nike in other hand is very different from King Livius. She is very kind and simple woman despite her title as a princess. She is an independent and also stubborn one who loves to follow what her heart says.
The contrast of these two characters had brought a lot of laughters and changed
the cold-hearted King Livius during their period staying together before the royal wedding held. King Livius also successfully brought something that Nike won’t find by herself; a song from her soul to call forth the rain. Moreover, this anime although didn’t include “overdo-skinship” between them, but their skinship can makes the viewers flutters and feels “overdose” of their sincere love.
In conclusion, I would say that this anime is definitely different and a must to watch. Not only that, it is also ‘probably’ suitable to be watch by 13+ since it does not contains any ‘sexual-contents’. Soredemo Sekai Wa Utsukushii, the story is as its name is worth to be rate 9/10 as I couldn’t find any lacks in its storyline. In fact, I’m wishing that it will have Season 2!
