A very interesting take on the Knight and the Princess concept
The story is quite simple. It sort of follows the typical survival game formula with monster of the week thrown in. Anyway, a royal family of monsters must live their adolescence as pretty much humans until they reach maturity when they become immortal, invincible, god-like creatures that look like phoenixes. The reason they kill each other is just that, once they reach maturity, no one can stop them, and you would have a lot of god-like phoenixes. Enter the game, each royal child is given an android servant that only says Fuga. This servant will also self-destruct if their respective prince or princess is killed. Additionally, the royalty can "recruit" an infinite number of half-immortal soldiers to fight on their behalf. What makes their soldiers half-immortal is that while they're completely invincible, their immortality has a time limit of about three days. At that time, the royalty they serve must renew their immortality another three days via the Flame of Life, or their blood in the manga. On to characters, the story follows the main character, Hiro (pronounced "Hero"), is a typical anime fourteen-year-old boy with the courage to throw himself into harm's way to save the life of another, which is how he meets the Princess. His older sister is also the Princess's live-in maid. The Princess, or Hime(which means princess in Japanese) as she's called, is sort of a femme-fatale, with the skill to use any weapon, most famously a chainsaw. Overall, I really enjoyed the show. It was an interesting concept, and it played out really well. My favorite moments are when Hiro becomes absolutely critical to Hime's survival, instead of her just hacking down the monsters herself.
