Ooji Subaru, a prince-like girl who is very popular among female classmates, has just transferred to a high school in the town she grew up. Awaiting her there was her childhood friend Megumi and three other guys named Motochika, Mashiro, and Reiji, together nicknamed "The Princes", who turn out to be reincarnations of the famous...?? A hilarious twist on the age-old Grimm fairy tales!

Before you read this review, please know that the manga is only 8 chapters in so depending on the rest of the story, the score may vary.
So far the score I gave the story is a 5. The way it was written, it almost seemed like the mangaka didnt know how to transition the story between a fantasy and slice-of-life. One minute your reading a normal school-environment-rom-com and the next, theres a random twist and its turned into this modern day fairy tale. The 5 might be a bit harsh, seeing as the storyline was semi-interesting, and at first I thought to myself "hmm, ok
thats interesting enough." To be honest though the modern day fairy tales are pretty common these days and the storyline was just a little TOO unbelievable.
The art was ok, and ill be generous and give it a 7. I thought it was a bit overdone with the shiny scenes and the roses and sparkle background, but to each his own. The characters were all cute so thats probably what gives it the extra points.
CHARACTERS-6. Now heres where I was torn. At first I was really into the characters, each guy had a different personality with some deep past and an interesting background story. The character interaction was cute and funny and it was good enough to get a high score from me, nothing amazing but still good. So somehow theres this reverse harem going on that involves 4 guys and one girl (which initially thats way too much imo) but i figured id go with it. Then they add in another girl, but she isnt involved with anyone, and then 3 more guys who probably like the main girl as well. so overall we have 2 girls and 7 guys that all like the one girl--- WAY TOO MUCH. Sorry, theres a point when a harem is just ridiculous.
Like I said before, this was cute and funny, and this had the potential to be a good manga, but my enjoyment level was probably around a 7, and overall I would have to give this manga a 6. Unless the story changes dramatically, I would say dont read it, it will just tire you out!
I fell in love with this series when I first started it. The only draw back is that the manga was never released in English and the translated pages stopped at chapter 24. I really enjoyed the manga for what it's worth however I'm highly disappointed that I cannot finish it.
The lowest mark i gave was a 7 for art work due to the fact that placement was a little chaotic however it isn't that bad. The character development is really good as you see each of the characters evolving into themselves.
If you are looking for a cutesy romance, male harem manga, this would
have been a good one....
I started reading this manga because I like harem manga, fairytale retellings and the (amazingly queer) concept of prince-like girls. Too bad the story's not good and the art doesn't help.
Ouji to Majou to Himegime has the feeling of an early work, even though it isn't (I checked, the author has plenty other previously published works). The story feels aimless for the first few chapters, like the author never quite decided between slice of life with fantasy elements or actual fantasy, then goes straight to slice of life, only without that feeling that every character has a life of their own when off-camera, which is
usually what makes the best slice of life stories.
Which brings me to the characters, a hard subject for me because I found nothing interesting in most of them. There is an obvious "getting to know you" chapter for each of the boys/princesses and whatever shows up there are the only character traits of theirs that will ever be brought up in other chapters: they're all pretty boys with angsty family backgrounds, a special quirk related to their past life and no worries with having female memories. No one has any hidden strengths and, worse, no one has any hidden weaknesses. It's incredibly boring, like the characters were created by filling a form and never allowed to outgrow those initial ideas.
Also, this is a story featuring automatic love. As in, there is no development of feelings, all the guys automatically love her because past life. This is also terribly boring.
The art is rough. The faces are not very expressive, so I had some trouble guessing who was saying what; some of the main characters are so similar in design that it's hard to tell them apart; the backgrounds are very sparse, so it always seems like everyone is just floating around in nothingness (the author goes to incredible lengths in order to avoid drawing background); the narrative is terrible, with multiple moments where I had to play "guess what is the next line" in order to find the next panel; the screentones are always similar, which gives the pages a muddy look when you have uniforms + brown hair + effects.
Saying it all in a row makes it seem like a terrible manga, but it's just unimpressive. Terrible usually has some kind of style, this is just... Meh.
As you can see, I dropped it after reading 15 chapters. This is usually enough for even a slice of life manga to find its feet. Sadly, it wasn't the case for this one.
