What can you say about anime Princesses?
When you hear about Princesses, you think of them as good as they protect the kingdom or village at all cost.
However, Princesses don’t have to be good, they could be evil because of what probably happened in the past or whatever storyline that the author chooses.
Princesses in anime could be a child or even an
Here are at least 19 Princesses anime that you should look into:
1. Princess Sakura (Tsubasa Chronicles)
Sakura loses the memories of Syaoran and Syaoran won’t tell her about their previous relationship together.
With their adventure in Tsubasa Chronicles, Sakura falls in love with Syaoran.
This anime was airing when I was in high school. I really liked the
If you have the time, check out Tsubasa Chronicles as it has a good storyline and the series isn’t too long to watch.

Usagi Tsukino transforms into
3. San (Princess Monoke)
Princess Monoke’s real name is San as she is raised by wolves and is the princess of the wolf gods.
This movie is from Studio Ghibli and it was released in 1997 as it was one of the highest films during that year.
The movie is a good storyline and it isn’t too long to watch, you don’t have to be an anime fan to watch this.
I wouldn’t really recommend young kids to watch this movie cause this movie has battles, blood, and fights so I think this is better suited for
4. Anthy (Revolutionary Girl Utena)
I saw this anime by chance back in high school.
Utena wants to become a prince one day and as she goes to the academy, Utena duels for her friend. Anthy is the rose bride who is like a princess and who Utena fights for.
Before anyone gets into this anime, Revolutionary Girl Utena is a lesbian theme, hence the picture.
This is a rare anime that I like that has a lesbian theme.
5. Tooru Kouno (Princess Princess)
Princess Princess is a BL anime where boys cross-dress as girls to help the moral of the all-boys academy.
It’s about a first year named Tooru who joins the all-boys academy and becomes the third princess after bumping into a girl.
The anime is short and Princess Princess was once a popular anime before.
If you like BL anime, you should check out Princess Princes.

Mei appears at the beginning of the anime looking for the alchemist as Mei wants to help the poor. Mei is like a side character but she does have a story.
7. Lucia Nanami (Mermaid Melody)
Lucia is the keeper of the pink pearl and the mermaid princess of the North Pacific Ocean.
She saves a boy named Kaito and years later, she tries to find him as she falls in love.
It’s a cute anime.
There’s at least two seasons of the series and both seasons are quite long.
8. Sheeta (Laputa: Castle in the Sky)
Princess Sheeta is the heir to Laputa, she is saved by a boy named Pazu as they search for Laputa.
Castle in the Sky is an anime movie and it is the first movie made from Studio Ghibli.

10. Stephanie Dola (No Game No Life)
Stephanie is the princess of Elkia and the granddaughter of the king, she deals with Ekia’s economics and politics when Sora and Shiro are crowned.
The anime isn’t too long to watch and it could possibly be done within a week’s time as it only has twelve episodes.
There won’t be a season two if you were hoping for another season of the anime, which disappoints a lot of fans.
11. Hime (Princess Resurrection)
Princess Resurrection isn’t for kids as it has dark themes like horror and dark comedy. it’s about like vampires, wolves, etc.
Hime is the member of the Royal Princess and she doesn’t like to be called by her real name.
She uses a chainsaw during battle, she even knows that Hiro has romantic feelings for her as he is one of the main characters.
12. Asseylum Vers Allusia (Aldnoah Zero)
Princess Asseylum is good at hand to hand combat, and she’s the empress of Vers Empire.
She prioritizes the safety of others, and realizes that some people were using her to start a war on Earth.
If you like machines, fights, battles, etc, I think this may be an ideal anime for you. This anime has less than thirty episodes.
13. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
I think this movie should be one to watch for anime fans as it tells the story about Kaguya.
The animation looks like the style of drawings if you see the image, which is unique.
It’s been almost a decade since the movie has come out.
14. Pacifica Casull (
Pacifica becomes cursed to destroy the world at the age of sixteen.
I first knew about

18. Princess Charlotte (Princess Principal)
Ange and Princess switch places one day so that they could experience the other’s life.
Princess Charlotte is the princess of Albion Kingdom.
The anime takes place in London and is during the early 20th century. This anime contains violence.
The series is short with a total of twelve episodes, there was going to be a film series in 2020, but due to the pandemic, it has been postponed to next year and it is titled: Princess Principal Crown Handler.
If you like mystery and war, I think this may be an anime for you.
In conclusion, there are a lot of anime out there that have a princess within the series and that you should check it out yourself.
The princesses in anime aren’t like in Disney Fairy tale’s where they live happily ever after, not every one of them anyway.
It’s usually a different concept in anime.
