Your friends at FUNimation Entertainment
have asked ANN to give away even more DVDs! At this rate, they're practically giving away more DVDs than they're selling (well, not really, but free DVDs are cool, right ?)
This time it's The Story of Saiunkoku.
5 winners, each will receive:
The Story of Saiunkoku – The Complete Season One
- A 2010 Promotional Poster-Calendar
Saiunkoku is a country with eight powerful houses governed by one emperor. However the new leader Ryuki cares not for his new role and is rumored to spend his days chasing after noblemen in his court. Enter Shurei, a princess whose family has fallen upon hard times. Her dreams of becoming a government official are unattainable since she is a woman, but a twist of fate gives her the chance of a lifetime. If she agrees to become the emperor's consort and turn him into a respectable ruler, she will be greatly rewarded...
A story of love, dreams and perseverance.
