Synopsis

Lapis is the princess of Sorcerland. She's beautiful, powerful and has a sparkling personality; it`s too bad that she's not that bright. She'll go to any length to protect the most innocent of creatures even if it means destroying the kingdom to do so. And lets not forget her obsession with pudding!

Detatoko Princess is a laugh-out-loud lampoon of all the fantasy stereotypes you've come to love with a generous heaping scoop of slapstick!

Suddenly Princess is a bizarre, gorgeous little 90s OVA about a magical princess obsessed with pudding and her motley crew of friends as they adventure through the intriguing world they inhabit. It's one of those titles that goes to show that anime as a medium is littered with countless little gems that go completely unnoticed, nearly forgotten by time and certainly forgotten by the majority of modern audiences. Beginning with the story, it's a charming setup where a quirky, high-energy magical girl princess gets accidentally transported across the continent, and her and her friends have to find their way back by foot, encountering mysterious strangers ...

Very much like I said about Dragon Half, Detatoko Princess is a wacky, early 90's fantasy comedy that's a delight to watch. I know I harp on this frequently, mostly in relation to OAVs, but the comedy fantasy/parody genre was an art that passed with time, and with the exception of the on/off again Slayers franchise, you see nothing like this anymore.
Akin with the aforementioned Dragon Half, albiet a slightly sillier premise, our young protagonist Lapis embarks on a quest in search of adulthood and maturity, which quickly becomes a dangerous struggle to stay alive. Keep in mind that her pursuer is a curvy, ...

Detatoko Princess is an OVA from '97-'98. The OVA is from JC Staff and it's based off of an Okuda Hitoshi manga. Interestingly enough, the OVA came out around the end of the manga's six year run.

Story:

Lapis is the Princess of Sorcerland. One day she causes a floating island to collapse because she wanted to save a falling baby bird and decided that using her magic eraser spell to collapse a ...
