Corpse Princess Review by Miki
We start with finding out what a corpse princess and shikabane are. I love how the series uses bonds to create a power between monk and princess thas lets them destroy shikabane. Ouri is our main character but his brother Keisei and his hime Makina tend to co-dominate the first season.
After being murdered, Makina Hoshimura turns into a “living corpse”. Armed with dual MAC-11 submachine guns, she must kill 108 other corpses in order to gain entry into heaven. She is assisted in this task by Keisei Tagami, a Buddhist priest with links to an anti-corpse group known as the Kougun Sect. Her ultimate goal is to avenge the death of her family, by destroying the corpses known as the Seven Stars
Ouri is lead to situations invoving death and shikabane by a cat who he watched die as a child. He has been surrounded by death his whole life and has no memories of before he was 3. Ouri was taken in by his older brother Keisei and raised away from the temple life. Unfortunately Ouri finds his way in to the orders business against his brothers wishes.
Our main villain is Akasha, the betrayer priest, who has been working with the Seven Stars. (schichisei) He has a technique that is very strong and keeps Keisei and Makina very busy. They continue to fight with other priests and shikabane hime through both series we get to see plenty of action. The Seven Stars are made up of shikabane who use nature rather than regret to fuel their lust for life. We also learn they have a strong tie to Makina.
This series is extremely good if you like psychological horror. It’s grim and dark including girls with guns and boobs everything you could want in anime. There is also lots of Death and Regret. All around a perfect series to pass the night.
