Princess Resurrection (怪物王女 Kaibutsu Ōjo, lit. Monster Princess) is a Japanese horror comedy manga by Yasumori Mitsunaga. The manga is serialized monthly in Monthly Shōnen Sirius magazine and published by Kodansha. A 26-episode anime series by Madhouse aired on TBS in 2007. Both the manga and anime are available in North America with the manga licensed by Del Rey Manga and the anime licensed by Sentai Filmworks and available on the Anime Network website. An OVA series has been made by Tatsunoko Production with the first episode released in December 2010, along with the 13th volume of the manga, the second episode for the 14th volume, and the third episode for the 16th volume.
The story follows a young middle schooler, Hiro Hiyorimi, whose sister got a job as a live-in maid at a mansion. Hiro and his sister's parents are deceased, and since then, they have moved from relative to relative, and haven't seen each other for years. Once his sister, Sawawa Hiyorimi, got the job as a live-in maid, she sent him a postcard inviting him to live with her in the mansion. Hiro accepts the offer, and moves to Sasanaki; after finding the mansion seemingly deserted, he begins wandering around town looking for Sawawa. Meanwhile, a girl in a black gothic dress is seen on top of a cart pulled by a small maid. A car hit the maid and bounces off, crushing Hiro (in the anime Hiro saved the girl from falling i-beams but got crushed in the process). Having died soon after the accident, his body was carried to a morgue. The girl shows up and drips a drop of her blood onto his body (inserting a small flame into him in the anime). Hours later, he awakes in the hospital morgue, trying to remember everything. He later runs out of the morgue, hearing staff members of the hospital yell about a walking corpse. He begins wandering around town again, suddenly have a desire to go to the mansion. As he wanders, he sees that the lights in mansion he found boarded up earlier, are on. He walks toward the mansion, finding the girl and her maid he saw earlier in a battle with a pack of dogs and a wolf-man she addresses as Wildman. After the maid easily, wielding a tree trunk, dispatches the dogs, Wildman suddenly dives toward her, making Hiro suddenly feel that he wants to protect her. He jumps in front of her, and ends up being impaled by Wildman's claws. The girl counter-attacks as Wildman recovers from the interference, and strikes the sword straight through his head. As Wildman lay dying on the ground, he says he has shown disrespect, and asks for forgiveness. The girl acted like she understood, and asked him if the reason for betraying her was because his family was being held hostage. She then sees Hiro laying on the ground. She walks over to Hiro with her maid, and looks down at him; she asks him how it feels to die twice in one day. Hiro just says he's glad that she's safe. She calls him fortunate, and tells him about her resurrecting him, how he needs to keep drinking her blood to survive (In the anime, a life flame is being "burnt" on Hiro's chest everytime he "dies"), that she made him her Blood Warrior, and that she is a princess of the Monster Kingdom, a member of the Royal Family. She tells Hiro to address herself as "Hime," which is Japanese for "princess." The maid turned out to be a gynoid named Flandre. Hime and her siblings are to kill each other in a competition for the throne to the Monster Kingdom, and use various methods to do so. They meet others along the series, such as the half-werewolf Riza Wildman and Reiri Kamura the vampire. Together, they fight off the dangers sent to attack them, sometimes alongside/against Hime's siblings.
