In the kingdom of Forland, a coup d'etat occurs which leads to the death of the King. In the last moments of his life, the King sends his second child, Princess Alita Forland to escape. Unfortunately, while fleeing, a life and death situation between Alita and the bloodthirsty bounty hunter Falis causes the two of them to switch bodies. Desperate for the safety of her Kingdom, Alita begs Falis to return and protect the Kingdom, offering herself as collateral. After a swift beating on the rebel forces, Falis resumes the title of Princess of Forland, leading to the birth of the most savage princess in their land, the "Murder Princess."

For a short series with non-stop action and an adventure with a twist, there is no need to look further than Murder Princess. Personally, when I heard about the title, I was thrilled because the idea of a killer princess is something new and different when its brought upon a series. No doubt, instantly I knew it was gonna be a good series just from the title itself. What was your thought when you first heard about it?

Anyway, in moving along, as summaries in the synopsis, Princess Arita just witnessed the death of her king and now fleeing from unknown assassins, she accidentally read more

Murder Princess is a 6 episode OVA that offers great action and a straight to the point story line. I noticed the genre tab didn't include shoujo-ai but I believe there is a decent dose of that thrown in with all the fun action. Regardless, when I first heard of the title I thought it was going to be about a renegade princess more than a warrior princess, as murder is typically associated with bad people. The show's storyline would actually tell otherwise.

Being an OVA, the show spares you from the "unecessary" details and goes with a "this is how this universe works so read more

I felt this series could have been much better. There was a lot of potential to have good character development and an interesting story, but six episodes just didn't do it. The synopsis of the series sounded compelling, but the "magical accident" is little more than a one-line myth designed to explain away something the writers clearly couldn't think of a better reason for. The same with the story between Cesilia and Falis. The connection between the two is weak and cliche...which is something I found myself saying about the plot in general as well. It was very predictable. read more

For being a short OVA of six episodes Murder Princess is an anime that will keep you entertained. Of course, don't expect a mindblowing anime with the best story, best characters and all of that.

Story: Quite simple; the Kingdom of Forland is under attack by monsters and they plan to kill the royal family. Princess Alita escape from the castle and on the way for escape she finds an infamous bounty hunter called Falis. For some reason, when they fall thanks to Alita pushing her by fear after being attacked by a monster, they exchange body and Falis now becomes the princess of the read more
