Not bad but could be better.
It's about a high school girl that moves in with her grandmother and transfers to their school for a year and discovers she is the next Tamayori Princess, guardian of magic artifacts and a powerful weapon sealed in a forest that if released can destroy the world. 5 guardians of a bloodline are to guard her with magical powers at their command. Can they stop a group that wants those artifacts for their own purposes? A PG anime that isn't profane in any way and not too overly violent.
I thought this was a slightly above average anime. The animation and color scheme were really well done. Recognizable good voice actors lined up the show. So this had all the tools to be an amazing series and for me fell flat too often in storytelling with plot directiins that made little sense. The one very good thing I liked was the 5 male guardians treated the princess as a sister and friend and not a sex object. While I enjoy the character bond building and some battles the story was very slow to progress and a lot of choices by the writer had me wondering why wasnt this sone better. The good side had well developed characters and the bad side characters were 2 dimensional with no background for some and little for others that doesn't get revealed until season 2. Battles were few and far between for my taste. The 3 best epidodes were the last of each season. But a lot of boring moments to get there. If you want a lighthearted visually stunning new anime to watch give it a try. Just don't expect much.
