In the fantastical land of Amawakumi, a succession ceremony occurs each 30 years to pass control of the kingdom to a female heir of the Hime clan. But three decades ago, the Hime clan was unable to produce a daughter and was warned that if history repeated itself, the entire clan would be purged. Now faced with the same problem in the present, the Hime clan opts to send their disguised son Arata to the ceremony instead, unaware that he’d be sent into a trap where the former princess is murdered and the boy would be framed for the crime. Meanwhile, on Earth, Hinohara suffers a similar sense of betrayal at the hands of his classmates, and after wishing he could just disappear, he and Arata switch bodies. Now, as Arata struggles to find a way to return the two to their own worlds, Hinohara must try to escape capture, clear Arata’s name and fulfill this princess’s last wish by exposing her killers.

Subject to change. Or maybe not. Depends on whether I missed something or if I'm unhappy with this. But I doubt it. I don't wanna spend too much time mulling over something so stupid after all. OP is over powered, for some of you who are unculturized. Satelight brings you Spring 2013's most brain-dead, cringe-worthy, head-bangingly stupid anime. Trust me folks, you may want to have a bottle of aspirin before... read more
