Ani might seem like a typical harem lead, and in many ways she is, but this spunky princess isn't just waiting for the guys to get their act together. The 12 Days of Anime continue with Ani Inako.
There's something about growing up on a heavy dose of fairy tales and fantasy that leaves me with this ridiculous urge to still fantasise about the prince riding up on his noble steed and sweeping me off my feet, despite the fact that if common-sense hadn't knocked that notion out of me, Shrek really should have. And yet, I can't help but feel my heart do a little skip when we're introduced to an anime prince who looks like they might be the hero I was holding out for.
There's something to be said for a anime that can be so silly and yet take itself fairly seriously when it comes to dishing out some serious drama. DamePri kind of walks a fine line throughout most of its run time but the end result is pretty entertaining. What did you think? Review: Given I'm … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Series Review: Take Standard Reverse Harem With Just a Touch of Parody
At last we reach the final episode of this bit of silliness in anime form, and I must admit I haven't much minded the journey to this final episode despite this being outside of my usual kind of fare. Narek and Ane are racing to Inaco to try to stop Narek's father, the King of … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 12: Showdown Between Inaco and Milidonia
There are few anime that can pull off delivering a joke about a prince disguising himself as a commoner but refusing to remove his feathered boa and yet are still able to deliver a rousing and emotional speech later in the same episode about brothers and protecting a kingdom, and yet DamePri Anime Caravan kind … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 11: Narek’s Moment Is Done, Bring on Mare and Ruze
This anime has been mostly a laugh with some mis-steps along the way, but DamePri stepped things up a bit this week with a conflict worthy of the final story arc of the season. With Ani kidnapped, Narek being pretty much ignored and looked down upon, and Vino's uncle attempting to shove him into the … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 10: To Rescue A Princess; To Become a Prince
Review: This week's episode was pretty good fun but from the beginning it was clear this was the last little hurrah before something changed for the dramatic so you were always kind of waiting for the reveal. That said, it didn't let you down in the end. The tour is finally done and the Princes … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 9: A Dance And A Farewell
Review: I remember when watching Knight's & Magic how weird it felt when about two thirds through the season they finally showed us some guy on a throne ordering an attack against our main characters (or at least an attack on someone the main characters would care enough about to intervene). Who was that guy? … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 8: Random Excuse to Have Younger Versions of the Princes Before Introducing a Random Villain
Review: It is kind of refreshing when one of the cast shares your disdain for the trite set up that they begin to foist on us at the start of this episode. Unfortunately, what little goodwill that may have earned this episode was quickly eroded when they did a bait and switch and gave us … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 7: Oh It’s A Beach Episode. Wait! Nope, It’s Actually A Hot Springs Episode
Review: This show continues to manage to be absurd enough without making me want to smack my head into the desk and that's a fairly fine line to walk. This week seemed like it was veering sharply towards ridiculous and yet somehow managed to make the scenario fit perfectly with what we knew about the … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 6: How Weird Is It That A Fashion Showdown Does Not Seem Out of Place?
