"I want to be a hero!"

Majestic Prince is an incredibly tough sell, on the surface it's nothing more than your generic mecha series. At the start it's a dull, generic, predictable, incredibly by the numbers show with literally nothing new to put on the table. It's riddled with clichès, one look at the synopsis will tell you right away that this series has been done lots of times before, the plot twists used throughout have nearly all been done to death, and you will see them coming from miles away.

All of the above are reasons that, understandably, would likely put many people off the show read more

It is very challenging to impress the viewers when it comes to ‘mecha’, and not to mention, it is even more difficult to compete when ventures like Gundam, Gurren Lagann or Macross have already made their mark in the market. Moreover we have seen so many different types of anime revolving around ‘mecha’ with different elements like music, romance etc, that there is hardly any room for a particular anime to stand out of the norm.

Aired in spring 2013, Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince is one such anime that certainly did not appeal to many viewers. One of the reasons might be because of its stereotypical read more

How can i start?
well, "Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince" (or just "Majestic Prince"), is an mecha anime, so, you surely will be expecting an awesome galatic war storyline and beautiful mecha action. Since episode 1, i saw an incredible of mecha action, but no significative plot until episode 7. Just like on Shinsekai Yori, i feel bad for those that dropped this one before the story even start.
Story- 7
Up to episode 13:
Until now, i just could see a single fragment of the plot, but i need to say, this story have much more potential than i thought. First of all, i will wait until the plot read more

"What, another take on Gundam? Another series with space colonization, giant mecha, and intergalactic war? We've had enough, thanks," is what many of you think when considering Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, or MJP. While I admit that there are many similarities to the Gundam franchise, which somehow finds a way to just barely reinvent itself with each new series, this, my friends, is not Gundam.

Quite unique to MJP, the battle scenes are an extremely small part of the series. So much so, in fact, one could almost call it a slice of life with mecha. While characters in Gundam series have camaraderie, the members of read more

Recommendations

Shiny colorful mecha fighting an initially much stronger enemy. Starting out with some occasionally even absurd bits, but after a while the darker secrets start to raise their heads.
The focus on the use of children as soldiers to fight while the adults are forced to just watch on the sidelines are true for both these series. In Majestic Prince, we have the genetically engineered children who were raised for the sole purpose of being exceptional soldiers in the fight against the Wulgaru. In Fafner, the children on Tatsumiyajima were all genetically engineered to be able to pilot the Fafner mechas.
This has nothing to do with mechs. But the same concept of being a Hero is here. Both series uses the main characters as a way of entertainment. The "sponsors" brand them for publicity purposes while they face their adversary.
Rinne no Lagrange and Majestic Prince both feature good-hearted misfits that aspire to be heroes with their new found power. They each also have alternative mecha designs that explore limits beyond typical biped mechanics.
Macross Frontier and Majestic Prince both have very fast paced and highly detailed space-opera mecha action with a dash of vibrant colors.
Both are mecha anime, that are full of action. And both give out the same feeling. Neither are too unique, but still well done. If you like one try out the other one, you'll definitely like it
