Product Description

Wataru Minakami was at the top of his class, but when he unexpectedly fails his only high school entrance exam, he is sent to attend school in a mysterious place called Promised Island. There he meets his thirteen sisters! What's a big brother to do?

Amazon.com

Sister Princess continues the good-hearted nerd in a harem genre of Tenchi Muyo!, El Hazard, and Love, Hina. Although he's the top student in his cram school, Wataru fills out his entrance exam scoresheet incorrectly and fails to get into the one high school he applied to. He's taken to a school on an island where he's surprised to find 13 adoring younger sisters awaiting him. Naturally, all these cute girls desperately want to please their dear older brother, but the family relationships preclude the flirtations that are the genre's stock-in-trade. Wataru never goes to class or studies, but the girls' constant demands for attention leave him exhausted. Although this featherweight series is meant to be a comedy, viewers who grew up with siblings may find the prospect of 13 younger sisters scarier than anything in Wicked City. (Rated 13 and older: minor cartoon violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

"What would you do if you had 12 sisters?" This is the tagline for ADV Films US release of one of the most popular bishoujo series coming out of Japan. Sister Princess is the story of 12 cute sisters who love their one and only brother very much. Initially, this concept might freak out a lot of people, but don't worry, nothing really ever happens in that sense. This is actually a really cute and fun series. There are a wide range of characters of varying ages and personalities from the adorable and shy Aria, the mysterious Chikage, the peppy junior detective Yotsuba, the flirtatious Sakuya, to the good girl Karen. One of the unique aspects of this series is the different ways that each of the girls refer to their brother, which have been translated to the English equivalent in the dub from the original Japanese form.

The background information about this series is that it was featured in a bishoujo gaming magazine in Japan called G's magazine from 1999 to 2003, and has been very popular in the Japanese video game market. This release is Season 1 of the anime consisting of 26 episodes. Season 2 known as Sister Princess RePure consists of 13 episode and is a different story altogether, since it is more closely related to the original stories of the video games and G's magazine. RePure as of current has not been licensed for US release at this time.

The story of this 1st season itself focuses on Wataru Minakami, a bright student who was planning to go to a prestigious school with his classmates Akio and Minai. Unfortunately, he screws up his entrance exam, and instead is shipped off by his butler to Stargazers Hill West University on an island without warning, as he's been accepted to the school by recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sister Princess Shines January 6, 2005
Format:DVD
Whatever your thoughts about anime are, along with whatever you've heard about this anime series by ADV Films, this series deserves a special look by those of you looking for something different. At first glance, the series seems more aimed at children with the light and tender-hearted plots wandering through this series but after watching the first four episodes of this new series I found myself drawn to these characters.

Why? It's not your usual puffy and teary-eyed anime. After watching the first episodes, whereas the main characters of the anime series are thoroughly introduced one by one the anime seems to take off on a beat on its own with the remaining episodes on this disk. If you're a fan of Ah! My Goddess, Love Hina or Tenchi Muyo then you're sure to love this wonderful series.

By Dory
Sister Princess, in all honesty, is all kinds of fetishes rolled into one show. It's a typical harem anime where a clueless male protagonist is suddenly thrown in a world of pretty, naive girls who are all over him (which in this case are also his sisters). Unlike most others, though, this one is not sexual at all.

Art is ok, if not somewhat meh-ish. Drawing is very pokemon-era, so don't expect Miyazaki level of animation. Opening song by Yui Horie is great, but that's about it for the music. There is no coherent storyline (the show doesn't really need one). There are so many things unexplained, and so many contradictory details. Nobody explained how he got all his previously-unknown sisters. So much overreaction. And I still like it. Be sure to throw all logic out the window once you start watching this and just enjoy the cuteness. All of us can use some cute in our lives, right?

P.S. the mobile-internet-enabled netbook amused me. This was released in 2001.

Everyone else that wrote a negative reveiw sucks. This anime is sweet and full of good lessons. It's definatly more girl-oriented, but if you're looking for something to get you into anime this is it. I highly recommened it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sister Princess DVD 1 by Mew Kiki July 7, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This anime is very cute, in fact it was so adorable I watched it every day straight for 13 days!!! It also can teach you lessons on how to treat your siblings. I noticed myself bieng nicer to my little, cute(but annoying) sisters. however this anime kinda gets on your nerves because Wateru's sisters are acting all lovey dovey with him. It's kinda wrong, in a sense cause their related, And I cant stand the oldest sister, Sakuya-she is such a flirt! It gets on my nerves! Anyway if you like a cute anime with girls personalities that you can relate to you'll like this anime very much. AND IT IS VERY CUTE!!!
