In the Sun Kingdom, sunshine is part of its citizens' everyday lives, and rain is something that they have never even heard of. However, in a faraway land called the Rain Dukedom, the weather is reversed, and everybody has the power to create rain with their voices. Livius Ifrikia has conquered the entire world and expanded the Sun Kingdom's influence in the three short years since he was crowned king. Upon learning about the powers to create rain, Livius decides to marry Nike Remercier, one of the princesses of the Rain Dukedom. However, those outside the Sun Kingdom have spread a rumor that Livius is a cruel, ruthless, and tyrannical ruler, and as word reaches the princess, she begins to prepare herself for the worst. But when she finally meets her fiancé, Nike discovers that he is an entirely different person from what she originally expected.

Overlook the Shota-MC and you’ll find a strong romance story that transcends outer appearances. Livi is too mature for his age anyways.


One of my all-time favorites. Re-watched several times. Possibly a guilty pleasure.


Right when things started to get interesting, it ends. So much for that promising start.


I love it. Especially the plot and the not annoying female protagonist.


A more unique romance. It’s a little slow, but it’s worth a watch.


Strangely really good. Surprised it was underrated


Wasn’t really into the Shouta male lead, but refreshing story and heartwarming romantic moments. A great Rom/Com that is sorely underrated.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
