The World is Still Beautiful (Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii)

Plot: Princess Nike of the Rain Dukedom is engaged to Livius, king of the Sun Kingdom, for a political marriage. But she's in for a surprise when she finds that the fearsome king who took over the world in only three years is still a child -- and his first request of her is to use her ability to summon rain! (Not too original, but still enjoyable -- B)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: B+

Music: C+

Objectionable Content: Mild blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: The title translates to "Even So, the World is Still Beautiful." The manga has a similar flavor to titles like "Dawn of the Arcana", "The Story of Saiunkoku" and "Akagami no Shirayukihime".

The anime version is faithful to the book.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
