THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Was probably the best episode out of those 6. The battle scenes looked good and I also liked the ending. The show was alright, nothing really glued me to my seat watching this so my rating is 6/10, don't hate me for it.

I guess it was the best episode, I don't really remember the other ones but anyway. Berserk going princess is awsome, just a shame she stopped :(
I gave it a 7/10, but I don't know.. Might rewatch it and see if it deserves a 6 or 8.

I enjoyed the entire anime a lot. The last episode was solid as well. I gave it 8/10 just because it was entertaining and I love bad ass heroines. I can see why the other posts gave it a 6/10 because there was not any special about it but they OVA can open up a new chapter of the story which could be interesting or not.

7/10. The series was pretty dang average, but i really liked episode 5, was awesome, and the ending was sweet in a way, but it could have been way better. So i agree with 6/10, but im giving it 7/10 cause of ep 5.

A slightly above average series for me, but it sure went out with a bang. I'd recommend it. =D I really liked the lost technology aspect. I thought that was a cool idea. And switching bodies was amusing. Of course the fight scenes were what really stood out. I watched each fight two or three times in a row. XD

I can"t agree. For me this anime was so so not bad but not good either. The first ep was quite good but while I was watching the next eps I coudn't understand why on earth I started this serie and why the hell ( I'm sorry for my language) they didn't change their bodies...Murder princess wasn't as great as I first thought 5/10

Overall, a decent enough show, but 6 eps was a little too short for them to kill off side characters like that. If killing them off is supposed to be sad, we need time to really get to know them. A bit more time exploring Pharis' past, including her early interactions with her henchmen would also have been nice. There was potential for higher marks, but had to give it a 7/10 in the end.

Epic Ending!!! The whole episode was amazing, the fight with the witch was nice. She ttly ownd Keito, and I knew Alita wouldn't let her kill him. The end was great, it's a bummer the "lost technology" had to go away, man I loved those guys, and the Loli Androids were great to. I figured they weren't gonna get their bodies back, just b/c there was only one ep left, and I knew there was too much other stuff to wrap up. But, I kinda like it that way, b/c like in the very end they said she would become the most feared warrior on the battlefield, so it's cool, she can continue to protect the kingdom, and keep on her Murder Duties, lol...Great OVA...Urahara Out!!

Edit: I have to disagree with everyone above, yes it was a little rushed (what do you expect, it's a 6 ep OVA?), but I thought this was awesome, good plot, great characters, especially Falis/Alita, and a wonderful ending. I gave it a 9/10!!! Urahara Out!!

I thought the anime was alright, entertaining but nothing special, but what really disappointed me was the ending. D:
I really wanted them to switch back to their normal bodies. It just seems so...open ended, and I don't feel like it concluded well, considering that they're still trapped in each other's bodies.
Oh well. I still thought it was an okay series all around. I give it a 7/10.

Well I don't really have a basis to rate anime so I'll just rate them on how I enjoyed it.
And Murder princess was enjoyable but too short though =[...

Decent little miniseries. Nothing mind-blowing by any means, but fun. Action was quite good though I was hoping for a bit more of a bang for the end of the series. (Oh well)

I liked how they didn't switch their bodies back at the end. That would've been really cliche in my opinion.
A bit sad that all the robotic/cyborg characters had to disappear.

I didn't really get at all why the prince wanted to destroy the world. Did they ever give a reason for why he went crazy like that? He never even really acted crazy in any way, which makes it even weirder. =/

The best action OAV series in a while. The series never dragged out longer than it should be. Despite the intense pace the story remained coherent and everything else was solid. I'll take this over 200 episodes of "Believe it" and a couple Alchemists any day.

This series has me wishing for a decimal system.
I don't feel it's worth a seven but at the same time it's far to big a step down to call it a six.

The animation was amazing.
The action was great.
The plot while lacking kept itself sustained long enough to start and finish the series.
Fairly enjoyable character.
Very delicious music.

It's around a 69% for me.

It wasn't god awful, but it wasn't great by any means either. The music and animation was good, the plot was decent, and the characters were decent.

The ending sucked though. I was really expecting Kaito to die since he was all gung-ho about destroying the world, but he just gives up and sits there. Falis going berserk for 20 seconds was cool till I realized that there was never an explanation for it. We also never learned of the relation between Falis, Dominikov, and Pete and the loli-twins were just there for no reason whatsoever.

Also didn't like how they didn't switch bodies in the end. That's probably just a personal bias though. An average OVA.

Well as I said at the first episode discussion its too short. I liked the characters and the story and the whole anime but I think it would be better if it was at least 12 episodes.

Kinda silly and it didn't quite follow through on a couple of things, but I thought it was a very good swords & sorcery style action adventure. I'm waffling between an 8 and a 9.

It was really an enjoyable series.
Loved the 2 lolis, the badass princess and the skull guy.
But in the ending the 2 lolis died :(
NOO!
7 or 8/10

Was this adapt from a Hentai Manga/VN? It'd fit perfectly in one of those generic hentai. (srs)

Not a very satisfying ending, but a great last episode. The quality of the last two episodes saved this short series from being dropped.

6.5/10

I'd give it a 7, but I feel like it doesn't quite deserve one. Thus, it gets a 6.

Mediocre story, mediocre action, some likable characters, some hints of shoujo ai, overall not really a good show but somewhat decent and still enjoyable. I'll give it 6/10.

Damn, I wish this was an actual yuri/shoujo-ai anime. and I liked the big guy and the skeleton guy too :(

This turned out to be a pretty average miniseries, although I feel like the plot had the potential for something bigger; it just lacked the extra effort.

I actually really enjoyed it wish it was a bit longer at least 12 episodes.I guess she got over the whole doll thing since she threw to save this chick.Also the whole bloodlust mode was never really explained it just happned.After reading the manga I will say the anime felt more conclusive and going by the narration they never switched back.

Like others have said I wish it had been a little longer. I really liked the main character (Falis) and I'm a sucker for Medieval/post-Apocalyptic settings, so it would have been nice to have had at least a few more episodes. I think it would be interesting if they made some sort of prequel. Maybe about Falis as a bounty hunter with her 2 cyborg buddies hunting monsters. I feel that would be fairly entertaining to watch.

But overall I really enjoyed this OVA, it had some great action and an awesome main character. The only gripe I had with the end was Falis not getting her original body back (just because she looked so much better in it lol).

8.5/10

Was definitely interesting at first, but after finishing it just seems a bit average...definitely could have used more development..too bad they couldn't shape the story into something.

I can't believe it ended liked that. Despite the end wasn't bad/average, I didn't feel fulfilled with this end =(

The lolis and Dominikov and Pete dissapered but the guy who initiated everything is still alive... can't... believe....

Well, Well... as an overall I enjoyed this show and I wish it could have been longer

7-8/10 (I was ready to give it a 8 but this ending mixed my feelings... =/ )

PS.: When she said " bye bye" I feel like crying.......

------------------

EDIT: I like the manga's ending much, much more, the drama is different... and it does ' justice':

I really hope someday this get a remake and stretch the storyline a bit.(and use the manga ending above)
6 episodes is just too rushed.

7.5/10 since people gave 6s I will rate it an 8.
