On a planet far from Earth, there is a kingdom full of smiling faces. Princess Yuuki is 12 years old, and about to enter a sensitive age in a person's life. Everyday, she cries, laughs, and sometimes, her heart throbs with excitement. All the while, she lives merrily in the royal palace.

Filling her days are her loyal vassals: her tutor Reira, Izana who assists in political affairs, the leader of the chivalry Harold … and then there is her childhood friend and aide Joshua.

"Yuuki! If you have spirit and guts, you can do anything!"

"…No, not this again! Joshua, be nobler!"

Stella is 17 years old and a capable, reserved soldier. However, she is always smiling ... for smiling is essential to living.

This is a story of two girls born on distant planets.

Don't let the MAL score judge you from giving this show a try. If you can make it past the horrible CGI in the first 5 mins of the 1st episode then it gets a little better. The CG mech fights are quite enjoyable to watch and the world has an interesting vibe to it. Reminds me of Aldnoah Zero's world almost. I do hope they focus more on the world itself and it's conflicts than the characters themselves. Most of all we must protect the hime's smile no matter what. So don't give her show a bad rating before trying up to 3 episodes. read more
