I am having trouble figuring out why Marginal Prince exists.

Marginal Prince is, and always will be, the first truly terrible anime I forced myself to sit through. I cannot say I regret this decision, because this is one of those anime that helps to remind me how awful most modern anime is, and forces me to appreciate the few anime that are actually worth anyone's time. Were I forced to suck any worth out of Marginal Prince, that would be the only thing I could come up with. What astounds me about this show is, at the time of writing this review, a total of read more

I dislike being mean when i give a review, but i promised to myself to be sincere every time i give one.

Marginal Prince falls under the category of "it was so BAD it made me LAUGH". People who reviewed about this being terrible weren't joking to you, truly... the only reason i didn't drop it off from the start was because it gave me a sheer amount of laughter in every episode.

There wasn't any review written for this anime, so I thought I would help out and write down a little.

A boy transfers to a school on a small island. A lot of bi-shounen guys walk around. At first he isn't really accepted, but because he never gives up everything turns out right.
I was really disappointed, because they could have done so much more with the story. But somehow they decided to keep it really predictable.

The art was pretty okay really. It had good details, nice colours.

I give a 7, because of the singing. Every episode one of the characters starts to sing a song. read more

Marginal Prince is a low-budget, poorly-written hot mess, but it is also /hilarious/ in the way it's bad. Worth watching, just for the scene where the boy with long pink hair bashes a thug with a pipe while singing "Love Makes the World Go Round".

So essentially, Marginal Prince is based on a cell phone dating game. Since they couldn't really include the "main character" of the girl, they pretty much just removed her. Unfortunately, they didn't really have anywhere to go with the storyline without her, so they clearly made up a story on the fly. Plus, with the read more

Anime: Gakuen Heaven
All-boy school. Hints of BL relationship. Similar set-ups. Similar situations. In a sense, the 2 series are basically "siblings". similarity: 4*

Anime: Ginyuu Mokushiroku Meine Liebe
Both have very beautiful male characters in a school-setting. Meine Liebe is placed in the past and its tone is a lot more serious and darker, but but both have a conspiracy going on in their plotline. So, if you've watched Marginal Prince, try watching Meine Liebe (and its sequel Meine Liebe Wieder) too.

Anime: Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000%
A bishounen cast of talented "Princes" surrounding one (female in UtaPri and male in Marginal Prince) character that is not all that special in comparison. Main characters in both series attend an elite school where, at first, they feel like they don't quite belong. Every character in both series has different personalities and backstories that are presented in one episode each. Also, they all tend to burst out singing in one point or another (while the singing is good in UtaPri, it's really just amusing in Marginal Prince because it's so bad).
If you enjoyed Marginal Prince, I'm absolutely positive you'll enjoy UtaPri, but I  read more

Anime: Shoujo Kakumei Utena
mysterious "prince" theme; elite school; exalted feeling in the beginning
you often think "what the heck is going on?"
both seem to be meaningless, though Utena isn't, and Utena is much better :P

Anime: Angel's Feather
Despite the fact that Angel's Feather deals with supernatural while Marginal Prince doesn't, they both take place at an academy, explore boys' relations and have similar character types.
