This post was part of 10 Reasons to Read The Twelve Kingdoms but it outgrew it and became something of a primer plus a review, I suppose. Expect TOO MUCH BABBLING, general incoherence and ALL THE LINKS.

So tell me more about this The Twelve Kingdoms thing?
The Twelve Kingdoms is a series of fantasy novels by Fuyumi Ono, and its anime adaptation. It’s a collection of tales centred around characters who inhabit a distinctly Chinese-inspired world in which there are twelve individual kingdoms. Rulers are appointed according to divine will, their importance to their real so crucial that if they rule badly or are absent, the kingdom is attacked by monstrous beasts and beset by natural disasters, in addition to being poorly administered. That's why it's so important for Keiki (the magical divine being in charge of choosing the king) to find the destined ruler of Kei. She so happens to be Yōko Nakajima, Ordinary Japanese High School Student, the protagonist of the first* book in the series!
