The Fairytale World is in trouble. Its princesses and their respective worlds are disappearing, causing a ripple effect in the human world where their stories are popular. In order to save the Fairytale World, the Queen sends three magic animals, Sei, Dai, and Ryoku, to the human world with magic gems to find three girls who can become the "Super Miracle Idols," the princesses Snow White, Cinderella, and Kaguya-hime. Those "princesses" end up being three little girls: Yukimori Ringo, Takashiro Layla, and Sasahara Natsuki. But the gems transform them into older singing superstars, and after their accidental debut at the singer Wish's concert, they become known as "Little Princesses," or "LilPri." Now they must collect Happiness Tones from humans in order to restore the Fairytale World.

This review is based off watching the Cantonese Dub

Art - 10 point

For art, I give FULL 10 points. The main girls are Lilpris (Little Princesses) Ringo (Apple), Natsuki, and Layla. The girls are SOOO CHIBI CUTE! Their cuteness are off the meter. Every time I watch them, I smile and wanna hug them. My heart feels like it's gonna burst because the girls are just too cute. You know it's instant love when you get that feeling. They are absolutely adorable! The girls also have a shoujo form they can transform into with magic, turning into singing idols. They look PRETTY, whole lot better than read more

This anime was undeniably adorable. o u o no doubt about that.
Although it was rather 'kidish' it was still a really good show. Even a few of the songs were catchy.
Only thing that really bothered me was when they turned into lilpri and preformed. I found the the animation of it to be rather annoying. So.. i usually skipped over those parts. - v - '

But other than that~ supper cute anime.

This anime is a kids show, I cant deny that fact. But I wanted to watch something light and happy and cute and that's what I got. It provided me with a light wind down and made me giggle and think "That's so cute!" because there are no innuendos or overly sexualized characters. Its for kids who wouldn't care nor understand the concept of moe, so its not any thing close to Yui from K-On although there is a klutzy one.
Its very Powerpuff Girls-esque that its just three girls that instead of saving Townsvill they sing songs and dream of being idols. On that read more

This anime is very pretty!!
So, is a kid show, this is real, but I love the way to use a plot like "Creamy Mami" united with fables!
Music & OST are very good just like Character & BG design! I love it! But I hate when in a anime is used the Computer Graphics (that's the main reason why I gave only a 6 for art!).
It happened in Kirarin Revolution Stage 3 and now happens with Lilpri...
I only hope that, in future, Anime will not be all like that, otherwise... I could start to hate it... :/
S/Mileage as voice actress don't convince me at all. It read more
