Princess Erika of the Magic Kingdom must test out a magic item that she created for a year on her human world doppelganger before she can qualify for the throne. Her look-a-like happens to be Himeko, a tomboy who worries that her boyish looks and attitude are ruining her chances with the boy she is in love with. Erika gives Himeko a ribbon that allows her to transform for an hour into anyone she wants, but if she exceeds the time limit, or if anyone finds out, she will be stuck in that form for the rest of her life.

I never really paid attention to shojos and majokkos, and the anime made out of this manga fleet under my radar long time ago; causally I ended up reading this manga and imho is a very good piece of art.

Characters are very nice and addictive, the story is cool although at time can be a bit formulaic and with some childish moments, but overall is very enjoyable; the romantic part of the manga imho is very well made and exposed, a strong element of this manga that unfortunately is missed out in the anime. Himeko and Daichi love story is very nicely developed along the read more

Just finished it, and it was a satisfying read. I wouldn't say anything is spectacular in any sense, but definitely easy to read and enjoyable.

+ easy to read, light hearted
+ little drama
+ doesn't take itself too seriously
+ no annoying melodrama
+ likeable characters
- older art
- unrealistic situations solved easily/by magic
- no heart pounding moments
- slightly childish

As an old shoujo series, it's expected that it feels a lot different from the usual drama-filled hot guys love triangles etc that we get a lot of nowadays. That's really refreshing and a definite plus.

It's just about a girl who gets magic powers and goes about her life and being read more

This is like only my second review to write but I will try my best.


I feel this is an original story line. The reason why is that, you have your classical magic school girl story line trying to save the world, however Hime-chan mostly uses her power to transform and help herself or others. No saving the world needed.
This is an older manga, so it isn't well none, but should be because of the originality.


Because it is an older manga, the art isn't top notch, but those who like older art styles or read more older manga, shouldn't be bothered with it. read more
