Akagami no Shirayuki Hime S1 Review

Snow White and the Red Hair Review

After watching Kabaneri of the Iron of Fortress, I decided to watch a Romance anime that could uplift my agonized soul due to the hangover caused by the previous anime that I’d watched. Scanning kissanime, I randomly encounter Akagami no Shirayuki Hime. I didn’t have any idea what this anime was aboout. I just read the blurb and decided to watch it anyway.


The first episode of Akagami no Shirayuki Hime convinced me to fully watch this series. In fact, I totally adored how the anime was made. The art, graphics, and details created by the artists were so lovely. This was the type of anime which I’d been looking for.


The story started when the Prince Raj asked his fellow who was the fairest lady in their town. The fellow’s answer was the Girl with the red hair. That girl was Shirayuki. She was a herbalist in her town. Threatened by the Prince of their kingdom who was known to be idiot and selfish, she flew away going to another kingdom.


In a far away land, he met Zed who didn’t introduce himself as a Prince of Clarines. This kingdom was wealthy and ruled by responsible monarchy.


In that Kingdom, Shirayuki was determined to be a Court Herbalist to embark a journey with Prince Zen. Basically, Shirayuki passed as an apprentice in the Court where she worked with Ryu. Then, the season ended with those pictures up! Sorry for spoiling. I adored how these people have become more matured in their own path.


I want to be in the place where I can be of help for Zen.” – Shirayuki

This is like a typical fairy tale that we used to watch when we were still young. The story developments of the character is commendable. Their attitude, determination, and motivation could be of great help for people who are still unsure of their lives.

Besides the romance thingy, one thing I’ve loved about this anime is its lesson are:

  1. We decide our own fate. Everything is in our hands. 

  2. We also have to take risks. Change is inevitable, but somehow, it could be a new adventure in which we will learn more. 

  3. There is no destiny; only life with decision-making. 

5/5. I am still on my way to finishing season two.
