Review: Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle
Season Aired: Fall 2020 - 12 episodes
MAL Link: Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle
I watched it at: Funimation
This show takes the classic trope about captured and sleeping princesses and turns the concept on its head. In doing so, it finds a fresh and entertaining perspective on the classic fantasy premise.
The Plot in a Nutshell:
The Demon King captures the Princess of the rival humans and brings her to his castle. The Princess quickly grows bored with being imprisoned within the Demon Castle as there is nothing to do. So, she determines to just sleep her time away.
However, circumstances at Demon Castle often conspire to thwart her desire for sleep. And so, what follows is her quest to overcome the challenges of achieving perfect sleep in Demon Castle and make Demon Castle more to her liking.
Demon Castle may never be the same once the Princess is through with it.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is a very entertaining fantasy comedy. It finds a lot of humor in the premise to give to the audience. The fantasy setting itself is used to great effect in setting up the gags.
The characters are fun to watch, but it is the Princess that is the beating heart of the show. She is a perfectly crafted and written character for this show and it does not get old watching her in action over the 12 episodes. The Princess is cute and adorable in appearance, but in behavior she is absolutely ruthless about getting her sleep and shows no mercy to anyone who stands in her way.
Humor is very subjective. I have watched a number of anime comedies that did not work for me, personally. This one did, however. The show had me chuckling from time to time through it. It keeps the narrative and character development going while throwing out the funnies, which keeps it fresh.
If the premise sounds like it would interest you, I think it is definitely an anime worth checking out.
Score: 4 out of 5
