The story is set in the country of Saiunkoku with the majority of the story taking place within the various ministries, at least so far. I first encountered this story as an anime.

Shurei gets cooler and cooler. XD Also loved all the Koyu bits in this part, especially his chat with Shoka. It was nice to see some development on Seiran's part too--he's usually so externally viewed in this manga (I guess cuz we're usually either in Shurei's or Ryuki's heads).

Shurei Hong is one of my favorite female protagonists, if not THE favorite. She is a strong young woman who knows what she wants and takes much abuse in order to succeed. I love this series. I'm not sure if I like the emperor or Seiran more though.
Yay Kocho! \o/ I love this woman, she will end you if you challenge her. What an excellent mom to Shurei. This manga is chock full of amazing parental figures, it's no wonder the main cast are all so excellent. 4 stars
This story rocks. Girl power for the win.
