Wow, how did I manage to miss this one back in the day? It may say it was released in 2000, but everything about Puppet Princess screams mid-90s anime excess, and that is right up my alley. All 45 minutes of the film are pretty much non-stop action, with lots of gore and eye-catching set pieces. The whole use of puppets as warriors is cool as hell and their designs are all different and striking, with a steampunk aesthetic. The pace is brisk with a score that's pretty epic, featuring horns that really reminded of the stuff heard throughout Record of Lodoss War. Would have been cool if something more spun out from this, as there's definitely more material in here to be tapped, but as it stands, this is a quick watch that's a genuine blast.
