Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
The story follows Arcana Famiglia, a self-appointed organization with mysterious powers that has protected a small Mediterranean island from pirates, foreign countries, and other threats. The only daughter of the family's "Papa," Felicitá, will be married to the next head of the family in two months — and the successor will be decided in a competition that Felicitá herself will take part in.  
Kenn's Comment: Based on the otoge (otome game) by HuneX, this one's a girl's series that'll likely be treated the same way Hakouki did - shift it's target market slightly closer to the middle of the spectrum (spectrum being boys on the right and girls on the left). It won't become a shounen by any means, but we'll probably be see more action to draw in more of a male audience. Of course, the pretty guys will stay, but I'm not quite sure how much of the romance they'll be adapting.

There's also a manga adaptation of the series floating around. Not sure how closely it follows the game because I haven't read the manga or played the game. The OP theme is sung by Harada Hitomi, if you're wondering.
