Arata Kangatari

Manga Updates wrote:Every 30 years, a new princess is chosen from the Hime family to serve the Hayagami. The time has come again, but over these past years, records state not a single female has been born, save for one, the 15 year old Arata. The only problem is, Arata is actually a male! Forced to disguise himself and take the place of the princess candidate until a formal one can be found, he attends the festival only to witness the current princess, Kokuri-hime, murdered, and his own life is forfeit as well, by the hands of the princess' personal guard, the 12 Shinshou. As he runs for his life, Kannagi of the 12 convinces everyone that Arata is the one who has murdered the princess instead, and now everyone in the Imperial Court is after his head!

I decided to check this one out just for the heck of it since I liked the art style, and I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. I have to say, the description doesn't really do this anime any justice. It actually deals with two characters named Arata in two different parallel worlds(or something like that) one which is explained in the description and the other being modern day Japan. Well something happens that causes the two Aratas to switch places. So now the 12 guard dudes are chasing someone who has no idea where he is or what's happening.

Based on the first episode, I don't think it will be the best anime of the season, but I expect it will be worth a watch.

I agree, this exceeded my expectations. I expected it to be a cross-dressing comedy but it's actually a pretty well done, serious series. Looking forward to seeing more

And still waiting for the parts with Arata in the real world.
