Puchi Puri Yuushi, perhaps better known by its English title of Petite Princess Yucie, is a nice little series that is often overlooked for more popular shows, yet it’s just as deserving of attention. The story begins on Yucie’s first day of classes at the Princess Academy, a school for young girls from the five different worlds who want to become princesses or like princesses. The thing is, Yucie isn’t a young girl but a 17-year-old trapped in the body of one! When she finds out that one student will become the Platinum Princess and obtain one wish, however, her mind is made up to read more

I'll let it be known upfront I am not a big fan of "magical girl" shows. Although I used to watch Sailor Moon when it aired on TV, I never really got into it. And although I watched some of Cardcaptors, when it aired on TV I really really hated it. So yeah was never big on the magical girl genre. I mean really a bunch of girls with magical powers, fighting bad guys with secret identities? Really? The power of love and good intentions defeating evil with ease, and lots of girly stuff abound. I think I'll pass. I am a dude after all. read more

Okay, as a whole we are all different sizes in this world. Some big...some small...some average in height. Nobody really ever expects to remain the same height they were back when they were ten years old right? Well poor Yuushi, it seems like things didn’t quite work out for her in this department. "Puchi Puri Yuushi" takes place in a more mid-evil fairytale time, and comes with a lot of cuteness along with it!

Story: 8/10
Our story is all about a young girl named Yuushi (Yucie in America), she was found abandoned by her foster dad, who later finds out that this girl is different than read more

It probably wouldn’t appear to be so to many people, but Petite Princess Yucie deals with quite a bit of psychological analysis. What else do we expect from Gainax? Of course, the pedophilic content was tantalizing, but underneath that sweet sweet succulent surface is a fairly complex mesh of relationships that could very well send Carl Jung looking for phallic symbols to smoke.

First is Yucie. Our token heroine, who is unique as she lacks the beorgois attitude that seems to plague all the other girls with proper upbringing. The only exception would be Cocoloo, but she’s got issues of her own. As many of you read more

I have watched A LOT of different anime.... This show was a little slow to start but it was a great show that moved me! (There's maybe 20-30 anime titles that have done that for me out of hundreds and hundreds of titles!) This show is certainly an underrated title! If you like a wholesome,funny,magical, ( NOT as in magical girl!) and entertaining than i highly suggest this show! It was a true pleasure to watch! The animation could be a little better but that kind of thing rarely bothers me. The characters were fun and funny. The show as a whole has a charm read more

You see the words Magical Girl in the key words and what is your main thought? Maybe something like Sailor Moon where you have a 10 minute transformation scene, or maybe even Card Capture Sakura where she runs around trying to capture all the spirits of the cards. Well, this show is a little bit different (although there are transformation scenes). Instead, we have a girl who grew up in a pretty normal household. Sure her father found her in the woods but he treats her exactly how someone would treat a real daughter. He fusses over her, tries hard to have her wear pretty read more

Yucie is a seventeen year old girl... Although you wouldn’t know it at first glance, because a strange curse stopped her growth at age ten, freezing her permanently in the body of a tiny tot, and forcing her to go through the embarrassment of being treated like a child by every single person she encounters. Fans of a certain detective show may think they’ve seen a plot like this before, but where the two characters differ is in the fact that Yucie actually has some semblance of hope towards one day reaching physical adulthood. Hidden away in the highest point of her school is a read more

Sorry if my review is full of mistakes it the third one i ever done, Im probably late for reviewing this but for sake of childhood i came back and rewatch it for second times.

i come to know and love this series was when i was 5 years old in early 00 and every week i was sitting in front of tv waiting for this to show to come out so believe me or not ,this is probably among the most enjoyable and memorable series in my younger age.

So was this story good? it began when the main protagonist was a baby read more

Despite it's good reviews and incredibly cute girls on the cover I found this anime to be incredibly mediocre. It had alot of good early episodes but later on it starts to drag. Honestly I'm pretty dissapointed, when I found out there was a anime based on the princess maker games I was excited what it would be like to adapt something like it.

I didn't really enjoy the constant switch up between slice of life and story parts, mostly because the story parts were really boring, slow and the least interesting parts about this show. I still really love the gardening episode, the babysitting one read more
