Average Rating

The Sakurada siblings live a normal life in a typical Japanese household. Well, that's what their father, the king, wants for them at least. As members of the royal family, each sibling possesses a unique ability, and over two thousand security cameras have been placed around town to make sure the children are safe and sound. Moreover, all nine of them have been designated as a potential successor to the throne with the decision that the next ruler will be selected through an election. However, for the timid Akane Sakurada, the third eldest daughter who wields the power to manipulate gravity, all of this attention is a complete nightmare. With all the cameras constantly monitoring the candidates and even broadcasting their actions on the Sakurada-dedicated news channel, she decides that if she becomes king, the cameras have got to go. But just how will she convince the public that she is the most suited to rule if she can't even overcome her own shyness?! Election season is in full swing as the search for the next king begins in Joukamachi no Dandelion.

Interesting premise. Lackluster main plot. Decent character growth for the cast. Dismaying end that was too quick to even take it seriously.


Generic but had some fun moments here and there.


Story was abit ehh, but you had such a weird range of characters which was a nice touch. If you like super powers then its for you


One of the lesser known gems from 2015. Very lovable cast of characters, some great moments.


That little family who fight for the right to be king is so enchanting.


The many wacky and weird powers the characters have is what makes this shine. One of the better seasonals from 2015.


Must Watch!
