My opinion: While boys can appreciate this show too, it is mostly aimed at the ladies (don’t say I didn’t warn you). This is not a masterpiece, but quite refreshing to watch. Getting into the story is quite easy, and there are no fillers whatsoever. The flow is quite ok, and nothing feels rushed either. Fans of the Victorique era can rejoice too, as the setting is right inside that period. Downside is.. there is no second season! 12 episodes is a short watch, and you’ll have reached the end before you even notice it. Please note that there are 6 anime shorts that aren’t listed on aniDB (they are on MAL though), and you can watch those on youtube. Overall, a refreshing little romance anime. Note that Mizuki Nana is voicing the main character (well, you’d have recognized her voice immediately anyway), and Midorikawa Hikaru is voicing the Earl. Those two make a really nice combination.
Below is a PV of the said anime. It doesn’t show much, though.
