“Murder Princess” is a fantasy series by Sekihiko Inui. Princess Alita’s father is murdered, so she must rule Forland. However, things get more complicated when the mad scientist, Professor Akamashi tries to take over the kingdom. A freak magical accident causes Princess Alita to switch bodies with Falis, a bounty hunter. Will they be able to switch back and save the Kingdom of Forland?
“Murder Princess” is pretty much one of those series that deserved a longer run; especially since there’s an untapped comedy goldmine exploring the reactions of those who don’t even know that Alita and Falis switched bodies. While the main characters don’t get their original bodies back, the reader does get the feeling that they’ll be able to handle it no matter what difficulties they’ll face. The artwork has a nice, clean, cartoony feel to it. Honolulu fantasy fans will find “Murder Princess” to be a light, easy read.
