Castle Town Dandelion is about the Sakurada family. A royal family with 9 kids who are all vying for the crown. These aren’t your ordinary teenagers, each one has some type of special power which they use to help the citizens and also ensure their safety.

The other kids do get some airtime but no one gets as much as Akane, she’s pretty much the covergirl too. Continue readingby
