Princess Principal Crown Handler Chapter 3 gets its premiere date!
Spy-action anime series have boomed in popularity in recent times, especially with the likes of Spy x Family topping ranking charts.
So in 2017, when studio Actas decided to produce a six-part Japanese animated spy action film series and a sequel to the 2017 anime television series Princess Principal, there was genuine excitement from the fans.
Princess Principal is an anime about the divisions of hierarchy and class identity and about social roles and social deception.
It’s an exploration of both what it means to be othered in a society with such things in place, and of how one subverts, transcends, or overcomes their role in such a society. It’s also got the mechanics of its theoretical video game adaptation already nailed down.
The premise is set Ten years ago when there was a proletarian revolution that tore apart the Kingdom of Albion, that is to say, London, into two warring nations, the Kingdom, the royals, who obviously want to maintain the monarchy, and the Commonwealth, who presumably want to install some form of democracy.
A great wall was erected between the two nations, and for the past decade, they’ve been doing politics and spying on each other, each trying to gain the upper hand in the battle for ultimate control of the more expansive Kingdom.
The series proper follows a team of spies aligned with the Commonwealth, codenamed the Principal Team, including the Kingdom’s own Princess Charlotte, who is fourth in line to the throne and has no power beyond being a political pawn of the Kingdom.
Thus, she has opted to join the Commonwealth spies and commit treason against her own Family in a bid to attain the throne.
Princess Principal, is unique among contemporary spy fiction in that, rather than being focused on wacky spy fights with cool gadgets, it’s much more thematically focused and character-driven in a way that a lot of other spy movies and shows really aren’t.
The first and second chapter of Princess Principal Crown Handler was well received, with a MyAnimeList rating of 7.5/10 and 7.7/10, respectively.
