TV series to stream on Anime Strike in U.S.

I guess I will be adding this to my summer list. Aren’t “Princess” titles anime suppose to be cursed? :wink:

Even Princess Tutu??

Good show. I doubt it was a huge sales hit though. :wink:

Princess Mononoke did fine if I remember.

Now if you’re talking live action movies, then I concur.

From now on I dub this anime Little Canaans

I don’t think Ghibli counts. They could make a movie a homicidal pile of cat poop and there would be diehards who would still pay to see it.

not from a cat but…


I knew someone would bring that up. Not a Ghibli title though. :wink:

Also for the record, I think Princess Mononoke is one of the most overrated Ghibli films. I’ll take Whisper of the Heart any day.

The Summer 2017 Anime Preview Guide: Princess Principal

Jul 9th 2017

I really dig the goth steam punk look of this show, though the grainy texture took some getting use to. However, the pilot was much stronger than I expected, and it avoided the extreme info dumps that often plague anime premiers. I will definitely be keeping up with this one for a few episodes.
