Tooru Kouno's attractive appearance draws unexpected attention on his first day at an all-boys school. Having to transfer to a school without girls has been bad enough, but adding to his list of frustrations are boys staring at him all day long. However, he hopes that there may be girls around, since he ran into a lovely pink-haired girl on campus earlier that day.

After being escorted to his dorm by his classmate, Yuujirou Shihoudani, he meets a student named Mikoto Yutaka, who looks eerily similar to the girl he saw previously. To his shock, he realizes Mikoto is the girl and confronts him about this revelation. Yuujirou divulges that he and Mikoto crossdress as part of their job: a school tradition in which attractive first years are chosen as idols called "Princesses" in order to boost the morale of the students—and because of his looks, Tooru has been chosen by the student council as their third Princess!

To watch Princess Princess you have to keep in mind, it's a bit weird.

First off, the story. If we're really being honest here, it's kind of something out of a fangirl's mind. A prestigious all-boys school where a 'lucky few' are picked to dress up as princesses. Yes, you did hear that right, boys dressing up as princesses is the basic idea of this anime. And is there any more story than that? Not really. There's a bit of character development, one actual relationship involving one of the main characters and a teeny bit of shounen-ai to make the fangirls, who are undoubtedly watching, happy. read more

Clearly intended and marketed as a yaoi/shounen-ai series, “Princess Princess” will no doubt find most of its fans in that demographic, but those not akin to that genre will surely enjoy the series too purely for its comedic value. While not as a funny as “Ouran High School Host Club” or using offbeat humor like “School Rumble”, “Princess Princess” still delivers solid comedy.

To really enjoy “Princess Princess”, you do have to accept its somewhat ridiculous premise, an all-boys school where the most effeminate and pretty boys of the first year students get designated as 'hime' (aka princess) and cross dress as girls in order to read more

Princess Princess,

The story is interesting... Makes me wonder if an all boys school actually does that... It's an interesting storyline but I really can't complain. Humor, humor, humor is basically what this anime tries to get you with. It does a good job, and it compensates for the man on man atmosphere. If your looking for some shoujo-ai you will be sadly disappointed.

Art is good, no repeat scenes... thank god.

Sound is good, no problems. Character voices are perfect.

Character's were great, all with individual problems, while caught read more

oh boy this is a special treat right here.

the world is a fucked up and wonderful place. the lines are blurred and the freedom to disregard common sense is beautiful. i love this anime to death and everything it stands for.

for this review i guess it might be nessecary to point out that i am a straight male (ok not 100% but i swear anime made me slightly bisexual).

this anime is largely a yaoi fanservice anime, focusing mainly on genderbending. kinda like harem/ecchi but for girls, or just anyone who is a bit curious and confused. i don't know what i am so i read more
