Based on a manga by Mitsunaga Yasunori, serialised in Monthly Shounen Sirius.
Hiyorimi Hiro moves to a new city to live with his older sister, but dies before he can find her. He then awakens to a new life as a servant of a Princess of the Monster Realm, who just happens to be employing his sister. Monsters soon appear to attack or pester the princess since she is in line for the royal throne, and Hiro must protect her with his life (and repeated deaths).
Good day to everyone, 1st of all I've already finished watching this OVA quite a long time ago. So this is my first review and btw, I've also finished watching it's parent anime. Ok now, so what we have here is an OVA of the parent anime, for me I kinda see it as a remake of the parent anime. But unlike the parent anime this OVA has more to do with Hime and her other bros, of course there were also the panty scene in which it wasn't shown from the parent anime is the enjoyable part. Though, the art has change and couple
with some VA's changes generally speaking I don't have any fuss about it as long as this OVA has its usual Horror, comedy, action and supernatural are still there. Overall this remake like OVA is all good and I have nothing more to say.
Princess resurrection production is very similar to Full Metal Alchemist. Although the "parent story--anime" follows the story.. the random story of each episode has no connection what so ever to the next episode. Monsters show up and never appear again. Where the original story is creative but not as great as the manga intended it to be.
The story is alright, not too bad. bearable. The ova is way more interesting than the actual main stream anime. Although if Hiro the main male protagonist has some sort of power which allows him to actually save Hime, i think that would improve the story
and increase the poll numbers. But instead.. he can only take shots in the gut and die.
The artwork may not be up to par with the main anime because they tend to make the character's faces longer to try to produce a more mature face although it works for some character..
The art work for the main story is a lot "cuter" than the ova
Also.. in the main anime the producers tend tone down the violence. In the ova the artwork is almost exactly identical, where Hime gives her blood to Hiro to revive him and in the anime they use "Flame of Life"
The music in this ova is a lot better in my opinion. The OST in the battle scenes really suite the character's movements
In other word I liked the ova way better than the actual 25 eps anime.
Give it a try!
Princess Resurrection 1st OVA Review (since is the only one aired by now):
This OVA epilogue basically acts as a fast recapitulation for the first episodes from the series. The main plot involves a horde of zombies attacking Hime's Mansion in order to feast on her blood and acquire true immortality, which by now it may sound old (depending if you saw the series or not) but the hook here is that this revision is far more obscure, gory and sexualized than the series. I'm implying that the producers here wanted something in a similar fashion as Hellsing Ultimate with more closeness
to the mangaka original vision of the history, so you better expect tons of panties accompanied by frenzied zombie annihilations.
Its a shame that this would last just another episode, though it kinda looked like a fair doses of monster killing and sexual innuendos just enough to make you wanna see more, but at least that means less milking for the actual buyers of the DVD's.
That summarizes my whole perception of this OVA, either you liked the series or not, give it a watch.
