"Princess Minerva" is an action-packed Comedy/Anime, directed by Mihiro Yamaguchi, and produced by Group TAC and Toho. It was originally released in Japan during 1995.
Basic plot: Princess Minerva longs for the action and adventure of a hero's life. So she enters a fighting tournament as a idol-singer-martial-artist, where the winner is offered a fortune. But most of the women who take part in the tournament aren't fighting for money, but lots of other stuff like pleasure, revenge and for the heck of it. When one of her dearest bodyguard friends gets kidnapped by an evil sorceress, Minerva must become a true hero to save her.
This is one of the kinda funny anime OVAs I have seen, by those which were made in the 90s. It has lots of action and humor. The animation is pretty typical for anything of the 90s, and so is the humor. Most of the time where characters fight or get exposed to something bad, it mostly end up in a silly situation. I sat and giggled several times, thinking how silly the entire anime was. The fighting tournament itself was kinda interesting, and I should wish I could see more of it.
Conclusion: If you enjoy watching action-packed but humorous anime of the 90s, then this one is a good choice for you. My overall rating: 7/10. Some similar anime include: "Detatoko Princess" (1997), "Don't Lose, Makendo" (1995) and "Megami Paradise" (1995).
