I hadn't heard of this series till I found it on Funimation's YouTube channel a few days ago. While it isn't the best series I've seen it wasn't bad and at only six episodes you won't waste much time if you don't enjoy it.
We are thrown straight into the action at the start of episode one when there is an attempted coup in the kingdom of Forland. The king and most of the royal family are killed but Princess Alita escapes. Shortly afterwards she meets the bounty hunter Falis and after a moment of peril the two girls find that their souls have swapped bodies. Finding herself in the princess's body Falis agrees to return to the palace and overthrow Dr. Akamashi who has usurped the throne along with his sidekicks to robot girls who are equipped with an impressive array of weapons. With the palace secured Falis continues to act as the princess while Alita takes the identity of Milano, her maid who was killed in the coup. In later episodes the doctor attempts to over throw the princess again and later a new and unexpected foe emerges.
The animation is of a high standard and the action scenes are suitably exciting. I liked the character designs of most of the characters especially the two main characters. There is a fair amount of blood spilt although it wasn't too gruesome, it also avoids having fan service which some viewers may be pleased about. While it hasn't been certificated in the UK I suspect it would get a twelve certificate.
