Princess Rangiku lost her entire family to Lord Karimata, who invaded her home seeking her father's life work, puppets with unique capabilities. As her duty, Rangiku sets out with three of her father's greatest puppet warriors to seek revenge. She can manipulate these to battle the strongest of warriors, however manipulating the puppets leaves her own self vulnerable to direct attacks, so she seeks a ninja warrior named Manajiri to aid and protect her in her quest.
For an anime from 2000 Karakuri no Kimi is probably alright. However not worth the watch now. There isn't really anything to interesting about the show, accept for one exposition were the main female protagonist stands in the middle of a pond while she explains her troubles to a perverted ninja with alarming eyebrows.
It was okay, I did feel satisfied after watching it. There wasn't anything wrong with the story (except the fact that she should have died, also where did the ninja powers come from) it managed to entertain me for 40 minutes.
There are lots of better anime and if you really want to watch a Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Martial Arts, Samurai, Shounen, Supernatural anime than by all means watch it, you'll have a blast. I suggest you just watch something else though, there are other things that would be way more entertaining. read more
I felt satisfied after watching this,a very short but worthwhile watch.After her family is killed and her kingdom was destroyed by rival forces a young princess called Rangiku embarks on a journey to get revenge on her enimies.Along the way she seeks the aid of the legendary samurai Manajiri to join her in her quest.what make this anime so good is that unlike todays anime this female character is more than just big breasted fan-service,on the contrary she is a reasonably interesting character as she is both nice and at the same time being a bumbling cluts.she carries around her fathers finest poppet warriors ,and man does she know how to use them.Manajiri the other main character is your typical sleezy pervert and provide a nice dose of humour.
I really liked the animation the drawing is well done,scenes move from being dark to more colourful.The action is also pretty good,with nice explosion and fight scenes.I watched the dub for this and the voice acting was for the most part well done.''All in All'' nothing spectacular but still a well done and entertaining anime given how short it is.read more
