How I discovered Princess Resurrection: This was an impulse buy from Right Stuff, the art style and setting reminded me of Murder Princess Series.

Series Vs OVA: This review is of the original 26 episode series, there also a newer 3 Part OVA reboot series, but it’s not been licensed in the United States.

Plot: Hiro was on his way to visit his sister. On his way to see her when he noticed a construction beam about to fall on strangely dressed women. He pushers her out of the way the falling beam, but dies latter that day due to his injuries. Hime, the woman he saved, is really a princess over monsters and brings Hiro back to life. This gift makes him immortal, however he has to receive it regularly or he will die permanently.

Review: The series has a good mix of comedy, action, and seriousness. The setting is a fun mix of modern and supernatural with a distinct art style. The series does a good job of starting to develop the character’s, and exploring the unique setting. The revelations about the supernatural world, Hime’s background, and character development are slowly revealed in small doses through out the series. The series would of gotten a higher grade if it wasn’t for it’s abrupt ending. Too many things felt unresolved. On a side note, this is one of the few series where I can say I like watching opening and ending credits, which fit this series perfectly.

My Grade: 3 out of 5 / “Entertained”
