New translation link [May. 16th, 2019|11:37 am]
saiunkoku monogatari

nikolita

Hi again all,

I found this link and had originally included it with my last post in this community, but learned afterwards that the blog owner didn't want people to link to their translations so I removed it. I have since asked for and received permission to post it here, so here you go.

Maybe some fans knew this already, but this was new to me: After this original 18 light novels were published, there was a mini-series consisting of 2 light novels released in Japan. The series is titled "Saiunkoku Monogatari Secret Scrolls: Ask My Bones", and it details events which happen AFTER the ending of the original light novels.

Needless to say, if you don't want to know the final ending to the series, don't click the link. After reading volume 2 I personally can't see anything else being released for SaiMono unless it's a spin-off, but that's just my opinion.

Credit for the translation goes to tumblr user theyseemewhalin.

(The link also has translations for volumes 2 and 13 of the original light novels.)

Saiunkoku [May. 12th, 2019|10:11 am]
saiunkoku monogatari

[Tags|, , ]

Hi everyone!

It's been a few years since I've posted here, so I thought I would give everyone an update.

Previously I was the person who was running a petition to get Saiunkoku's light novels licensed and published in English. The original petition was shut down due to the site being closed, so I moved it over to change.org and started over. However likely due to a lack of advertising on my part (I've been broke up until a couple of years ago), we were unable to reach our goal of 1,000 signatures within a couple of years and the petition was closed.

In 2015 I started writing for an anime blog called Angry Anime Bitches. A year or two ago, someone from AAB mentioned to me that the company Seven Seas Entertainment runs a monthly reader survey where, at the bottom of the survey, they ask readers to submit up to 2 titles each for manga and light novels they would like to see SSE license and publish in English. The survey link is always posted each month on the upper right corner of SSE's main page, and I humbly ask that anyone reading this who is a Saiunkoku fan go to SSE's website and fill out at least the bottom portion of the survey each month.

Other news relating to Saiunkoku:


  • A member of my Saiunkoku FB group shared that earlier in 2019, a poll on the Japanese website Nejimen showed that Saiunkoku was one of the 10 anime titles that fans wanted to see get a remake! A promotional image celebrating the 15th anniversary of Saiunkoku was also released by Kairi Yura.

That's about all I have to share for now. As an aside, any Saiunkoku fan reading this who uses Facebook is welcome to come look at and join the Saiunkoku Facebook group I've been running. We celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Dec. 2019, and although we're not always super active it's a place for fans to post new information they discover (such as the news about fans wanting a remake of the Saimono anime), share their favourite things about Saimono, or ask questions about the series.

Thanks for your time!  I hope everyone is well.  :)

Volume 18 translation [May. 1st, 2019|07:30 pm]

Hello dear community members!

I am not sure if this community is functional anymore. But in case it is, and in case some of you are STILL interested in the contents of volume 18 (Shian no Gyakuza Part 2) the final volume, then you can check out my blog at https://marishaten.home.blog/ I have put up the prologue and will put up Chapter 1 shortly. The other chapters are too long for direct translation (I don't have that much patience), but I shall put up very detailed summaries with some direct translations. I hope it will be easy to follow the story based on the summaries. Just my own humble contribution to this fandom.

Updated Petition [Oct. 29th, 2014|07:32 pm]

Hi everyone,

Some members may recognize me as the person who was posting about a Saiunkoku light novel petition a year or two ago. Now I'm back again to tell you about the new petition. Recently the site that was hosting my original petition was closed down [right as we hit 500 signatures! :(  ] and all users are redirected to change.org where they can re-write their petition.

So, that is what I've done. The new, updated petition is here: https://www.change.org/p/viz-media-please-translate-the-saiunkoku-monogatari-light-novels-into-english

I am again aiming for 1,000 signatures, unless people suggest I aim for a higher goal, but that can always be adjusted as we go.

Tl;dr - New petition asking for the translation and publishing of the Saiunkoku light novels in English has been created. Click the link above to sign it! And if you know any friends or other fellow fans who love the show, I would be so grateful if you could please spread the word.

I also have a group set up on Facebook that is the home base for the petition, but we discuss other things about Saiunkoku too. If you're interested, come visit us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/197921139394/

Thank you for your time. :)

About Sakujun & Anju?!?! [May. 4th, 2013|02:13 am]
saiunkoku monogatari

kanniechan
I've read the spoiler from the final volume here, but I'm still very confused (sorry, I don't know Japanese and Chinese neither, so it's hard to read the novel for me)
http://himeyasha.blogspot.com/2011/08/saiunkoku-monogatari-ending-spoilers.html

- What is Anju's plan? What is his motivation? Is he really a bad guy? After everything he still works in the palace & go joking around? @___@
- What did actually happen to Sakujun till the end? Is he dead or alive? What's the point rescuing Shuurei here? (is that he really "loves" her, i don't know how to express...)
- How can Sakujun & Anju be half-brothers, though they seem to look like each other. But they have the same mother than it's ok, but how about the same father? & were Sakujun is really grandchild of Enjun's brother? Since Eiki called him her grandchild instead...


Sorry for asking that much xD But these 2 characters are the most interesting to me in this novel, so I'm very curious. Thanks in advance xD

Hi, sorry if this is against the rules. I'm looking to download Shadow Dreams subbed videos for season 1 episodes 1-20 and 28-39. For some reason, the other group's encoding won't work for me. If anyone has the files or a torrent and could post a link, that would be great. I know it was licensed a long time ago, but I could only find DVDs that were priced in the hundreds of dollars, which is way too high for my budget. Thanks in advance! :)

Selling Chinese Version Book 20 蒼迷宮巫女 Aoki Meikyuu no Miko [Feb. 4th, 2013|12:19 pm]
saiunkoku monogatari

rushita
For anyone who lives in Greater Toronto Area, I'm selling book 20 (i.e., the last book before the 2-book ending), for $8 CAN. I've got a duplicate copy once again, so this book is brand new, still in original wrap. It is in Traditional Chinese published by Kadokawa Media (Taiwan) Co.

小説: 彩雲國物語 (20) 蒼迷宮巫女
作者 : 雪乃紗衣
插畫 : 由羅カイリ
台灣角川出版
中文繁體
全新完整包裝

Please note that the volume number follows the number assigned for Chinese edition by Kadokawa Taiwan. It is not the same numbering system for original Japanese edition. In any case, this is the last book before the 2-book ending.



Anyone interested? Please e-mail me: rushita@rushita.com

After watching Trophies belong in the bedroom, just because of Nobuyuki Hiyama (which is Kouyuu's seiyuu) I am positive that Kouyuu (or any other "protective" being) will kill that Yuusha-ou for doing Aki's voice.

Translation Editing Request [Jul. 16th, 2012|09:52 pm]

Hi, fellow Saiunkoku fans! I'm here to ask your help with something. I have actually just finished translating one of the Saiunkoku gaiden stories, which I would like to post for everyone to read; however, since I have never formally studied Japanese and was basically just teaching myself as I went along, I don't feel completely confident in my translation, and occasionally there were things I didn't understand and so forth. So, I was wondering if there is anyone here who knows Japanese better than I do who could look over my translation to check for mistakes and answer questions? I'd feel a lot better posting it if I could be sure it wasn't full of errors. I really hope someone can help me with this. Thank you!

Doujinshi [Jun. 30th, 2012|11:17 pm]

I like SM and Doujinshi. Several years ago, I've downloaded some good ones from here and even created a list. Unfortunately, my previous computer broke down, I lost all my data, and now I'm seriously wanting to get some back. Even worse, I've checked the links from my list and most, if not all, are dead (or in Megaupload and die with it).

Would somebody mind reuploading or at least sending me the doujinshi that is once downloadable here? I'm not asking to spread it around or anything, just for my viewing pleasure.

I love Saiunkoku Monogatari [Jun. 4th, 2012|07:19 am]
saiunkoku monogatari

unguanime
Hi. I've been in this community for a while but haven't posted much.

I don't see any rules about introduction posts, but if it's not allowed, please delete this!

I watched Saiunkoku Monogatari anime when I was in junior high school (about 4 years ago). But I didn't watch it completely. Now I'm watching it again while reading the light novel.  I just finished volume 1 and episode 5. I'm quite slow... My friend (who knew Saiunkoku through me) finished the two seasons anime in 5 days (five busy school days O_O).. .. LOL XD

I'm really excited to follow this series, especially the light novel. I'm currently a university student majoring in Japanese language and culture so reading Saiunkoku Monogatari light novel means more than entertainment for me. Also, the light novel contains the ending of this series (that's the most important thing!). 
I'm going to continue loving this series! I hope I can follow it without getting spoilers (I'm in the anti-spoiler force).

Nice to meet you all~
