A Scrapped Princess Anime Review
Scrapped Princess Episode Count: 24 episodes

If your into Fantasy anime then this is for you. Anyway Scrapped Princess follows Pasifica Casull as she tries to avoid the danger a certain prophecy has implied over her being the destruction of the universe. This anime has some inventive fantasy world concept where magical beings or anomalies aren’t too unfounded. The twists and turns of shocking plot twists keep this anime series going. While it has light comedic moments mostly it carries a serious undertone.

The animation is somewhat good. It does have the full Fantasy feel, yes, but lacks this brilliance although it could be just this blogger! If you like anime of S-CRY-ED‘s animation quality then do not fear. The characters are pretty multi-faceted too and when watched the English Dubbed of it (Crispin Freeman from Blood + lends his voice to Shannon Casull) and thought that it added to the greatness of the series. Shannon and Pacifica in particular had a close brother-sister relationship that was interesting, and then there is a knight that is sort of a klutz who follows after Pacifica. The animation and characters covered comes out being pretty excellent even if the animation falls or lacks in a few places.

Even so, Scrapped Princess should be held as a true anime series classic much like S-CRY-ED or Sailor Moon. If you haven’t seen then there is no better time than now.

Genre: Fantasy
Recommended Level: Extremely High

    • It may seem so but its different. Chaika can handle herself but I would say Pasifica ,the main character, in Scrapped Princess is whinier but a good girl. She also has no powers to speak of.

      The parallels are there in the sibling fighting duo. Also Pasifica is seen as on the verge of bringing destruction to the world someday. In Scrapped Princess, though seriously every step of the way someone is out to kill her. In Chaika The Coffin Princess, Chaika at least gets a few breaks here and there from Gillette’s group.

      The Fantasy world though between the two is really what sets them apart and also the characters’ relationships.
