neee Shadow who placed 4th in the examination (Eigetsu 1st, Ran Ryuuren 2nd, Shuurei 3rd...4th?)
also will the story be returning to the main plot or is the next episode a side story too?

Fourth was Heki Hakumei. The next story goes back to the "main" story which will be book 3.

Trailer:
The dream I didn't think could come true has come true. I'm taking my first step towards becoming a public official. I wonder what my first job is. Eh?! Cleaning bathrooms?!

*laughs* Ryuuki's... he's... um. Unfortunately, Seiran can't protect Shuurei much as she goes through the provisional training period since he doesn't belong in the courts themselves so... ^^;;

Reishin's funny again in this story and we get to meet Kurou towards the end of this story arc. ^___^

Um... you'll have to be a bit more specific as to which novel and what you want spoilers on. ^^; Novel 3 for the series is complete, but the actual series is still ongoing.

oh I meant the whole series, sorry for not making it clear Shadow ^^;; About the spoiler, I wanted to know if there's any romantic development between Shuurei and Seiran? And are we going to see more of Shouka's back story? Seiran too if possible ^-^

Thanks!

Sorry about not replying sooner. I really am bad about replying in a timely manner sometimes. ^^;; Seiran hints a bit here and there that he certainly wouldn't mind being with Shuurei, but Shuurei's mostly blind to that aspect or doesn't see him that way. Watching the two together, Shuurei pulls Seiran along through things a lot more than he initially realises and she's very aware of when Seiran's struggling with decisions. As it is though, the #2 most important person to Shuurei is Seiran.

Later in the novel series, Seiran asks Shuurei what she would do if he couldn't be useful to her. Shuurei just looks at him confused and says, "you mean if you go senile when you're old? Of course, if you don't have a wife or kids, I'll take care of you."

As it is, the next novel release (in the magazine The Beans) is supposed to be a bit about Shouka's past and why Reishin is so attached to his brother. I'm really looking forward to reading it and have ordered the magazine. ^^;; Bits and pieces of Seiran's past come out in books 4 & 5 especially and we get little pieces of past story here and there between Seiran and Shuurei. I love the first thing Seiran ever said after being taken in by Shouka's family. ^^;

oh noes!Shuurei why must you answer Seiran like that? a_a It can't be helped..he's with her since childhood so I guess Shuurei sees him like a big brother *cries* But then again Seiran's question was somewhat misleading... *perks up* What did he mean by 'useful'? No wonder Shuurei's confused.. I wonder what Seiran thought of her answer.. ^^;;

yay! looking forward to Shouka's past. Does Seiran knows if Shouka knew he's the exiled prince? Maybe we'll learn also why Shouka seek him out and offered him his home.

oh please please, what did Seiran say when he was taken to Shouka's family?

In your opinion, is there any hope for Seiran and Shuurei as far as the novel shows? I don't have problem if she ended up with Ryuuki because he's just too adorable and I think he really loves her and they'll be good together.. Its just I don't know what's with me always rooting for the secondary characters ^^;; Yasu in Nana, Shinogu in Hot Gimmick, Mori in Ouran, Rui in HYD, Yuki in FB etc...waaah now Seiran...

Sorry for asking so many questions. I'm too obsessed with Saiunkoku^^;;

btw- Shadow, I don't mind at all. I'm grateful enough you're doing summaries for us. Please reply whenever you're free ^-^ I love reading all your posts and replies. Thank you for including snippets of some scenes not included in the anime. I prefer the novel because its canon. Wish the novel would be licensed I wanna read it too p_p

But then again Seiran's question was somewhat misleading... *perks up* What did he mean by 'useful'? No wonder Shuurei's confused.. I wonder what Seiran thought of her answer.. ^^;;

*laughs* It was a strange question to ask. I think Seiran was thinking more along the lines of his being able to help her and support her with her work however he can in his capacity as a member of the military. He ended up smiling at her reply because, Shuurei didn't stop to think about his being useful or not, nor did she stop and consider that there was no reason to necessarily think they'd be together, she automatically assumed he'd still be with her until he was old.

Does Seiran knows if Shouka knew he's the exiled prince? Maybe we'll learn also why Shouka seek him out and offered him his home.

I don't know if Seiran knew before, but I think he's come to realise Shouka knows from certain comments Shouka makes later in the series. Basically Shouka tells him that he doesn't have to be "perfect" anymore which is something Seiran had always strived for as a prince.

oh please please, what did Seiran say when he was taken to Shouka's family?

If you've watched ep 11, you'll know how Shouka is in the kitchen making ginger tea. Shuurei's mother was the same when making Shuurei's medicine. ^^;;

*****

Shuurei: When I was little, I'd often been in bed with a fever, but it was always so lively and fun, right?

Seiran got a strange look on his face, "I think it was a bit different from that but that it was always so lively is because, when Madam made medicine for you, she'd always cause something to explode and cause a panic. While she was extremely skilled at making medicine and it definitely did work, every time she made it, something strange would always happen."

"Ah that's right, and you'd often go running and yell at her. Come to think of it, I'd heard that the first time you spoke was when Mom was making medicine by my bedside and caused an explosion. Is it true you protected me from that and yelled 'what are you going to do if you hurt this child?!'?"

"...It's the truth. That time, there was the risk of you ending up with life-threatening burns, My Lady."

*****

In your opinion, is there any hope for Seiran and Shuurei as far as the novel shows? I don't have problem if she ended up with Ryuuki because he's just too adorable and I think he really loves her and they'll be good together..

So far, I'm getting the feeling of Ryuuki x Shuurei much more than Seiran x Shuurei. Even though Ryuuki's stuck in wait mode, Seiran doesn't seem to move much in that sense. I think I need to read the latter books more carefully (I'd skipped over large sections esp. those dealing with Eigetsu, Kourin, and other characters), but I'm wondering if Seiran isn't thinking more of supporting that coupling as well later...? I'm not entirely sure though.
