From Transcendence:
As the war-torn kingdoms vie for power in Ancient China, a deadly yet beautiful struggle also emerges in the seraglio of the King Xun, the King of Ding! In order to gain the terrifying King Xun's favor, Ninghu's family is determined to make her the future Queen, but King Xun is not interested in his concubines at all.

Not willing to become just another neglected concubine, Ninghu disguises herself as an eunuch servant to her brother Yuanren, the second most powerful eunuch and adviser in the kingdom. However, the moment that she enters the Scarlet Palace, Lingyu, the most influential and favored eunuch, suspects that she is a girl and begins to investigate her.

With the mysterious death of Lingyu's original servant, Ninghu decides to become Lingyu's personal servant in hope to approach King Xun. However, King Xun is absent from the palace, and as time goes on, Lingyu and Ninghu become more and more attracted to each other. Could they have fallen in love with each other?!

Frankly, I am annoyed by gorgeous noble characters who do nothing useful, but easily spend government money for dresses and so on ^^" ... But except this small thing - manhwa is great!

Puzzling plot synopsis but then it all started to make sense ...

First off, I'd like to congratulate Yi Huan for massively improving her artwork. You can see that she has improved with experience and her characters do not look too choppy like they were in her previous series. I could finally read from chapters 1 - 7 without cringing at the characters looking weird at certain angles.

Second off, the characters are GORGEOUS. Lingyu and Yuanren are both really good-looking guys, so Ninghu is a pretty lucky girl! biggrin

Third off (& also with reference to my subject title), at first it was puzzling that a romance could even happen to an eunuch and the protagonist because eunuchs are castrated and hence loses all sexual urges. But after that, it started to make sense.

I highly recommend this series... it's rare to see eunuchs who are so good-looking (if you watch Chinese historical dramas you'd notice all the eunuchs are elderly old men with feminine voices *eek*)

How many chapters have you read of Scarlet Palace? Have you gotten your hands on the raws? I like it, the ancient china theme and the whole package. Though I'd like to see how Lingyu (that's her name right?) is treated by the king.

Only two chapters are out so far, but I'm totally intrigued by where the plot is going. This is the rare shoujo manga where I've no idea who the main couple is supposed to be; whether the characters other than the heroine are good or scheming, or both; or whether the male lead, who is a eunuch, likes women at all. If there's some smart political intrigue thrown into the mix, I couldn't be happier. More, please, more! <3

EDIT: OK, I now know the setup is more predictable than I initially imagined. Still, pretty decent.
