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. ...

Mixed Feelings
First of all, I want to specify that this is MOSTLY NOT yaoi/shonen-ai. There are no boy/boy relationships whatsoever. Nevertheless, they are implied and there is a scene that might be concidered shonen-ai.
Nothing even slightly hardcore so I'm pretty sure others (more girls, I guess) can enjoy this anime without being freaked out.

This is a simple anime. It stars with a lame excuse of a plot but then proceeds to develop each of the characters background, which is quite interesting for the most part. After the character development, the story comes to an end.

The latter fact left me with an empty feeling; why come to ...

A poor adaption of its highly likable cousin, the manga, Princess Princess is an anime that makes you suffer completely throughout it and is something you should probably watch with your friends to be able to endure.

I had decent expectations of this anime at first. Especially since the manga is one of my favourites of all time -- (I mean, who can resist Taishi Zaou's humour? It's just FABULOUS) -- and let's face it, Studio Deen is a great studio in itself too. There are so many elements to this that could have made it great.

The story starts out OK, presenting the same premise ...
