After a sudden coup d'etat by the court scientist Dr. Akamashi results in the king's death, Princess Alita Castilia Arago Forland is forced to flee the capital. During her mad dash for survival deep into the forest, Alita collides with the brutal and temperamental bounty hunter Falis, which causes the two women to magically switch bodies.

Using her original body as collateral, Alita convinces Falis—and her henchmen Dominikov and Pete—to help take back the capital from the treasonous scientist by pretending to be the real princess. However, while the plan was initially successful, the only diplomacy Falis knows is with her sword. Alita must now work hard to make sure the kingdom is not trading one royal scandal for another, all while the two displaced women look for a way to return to their original bodies.

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 ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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. ...
