Time Stranger Kyoko is a 3-volume manga written by Creator/ArinaTanemura.

In the year 3000, Kyoko Suomi is the princess of Earth. She has been going to public school as a normal girl, so no one knows she's the princess. As her 16th birthday is coming up, her father is going to force her to attend the ceremony, revealing to everyone her identity. The only way for her to get out of this is to awaken her twin sister Ui, who has been asleep since the two of them were born. She can only do this by bringing together the 12 Strangers, herself being the Time Stranger. Together with her bodyguards, Sakataki Jin and Hizuki Jin, she sets off on a quest to find the other 11 Strangers.

!!This manga provides examples of:

* AllThereInTheManual: Parodied. Kyoko asks her father why he's believing a manual that uses the word "perhaps" so many times.
* {{Animorphism}}: The Kirito can turn into the animal they have DNA from (Dragon tribe people turn into dragons, etc...).
* BodyguardCrush: Sakataki and Hizuki to Kyoko.
* CallingYourAttacks: The Strangers.
* {{Catgirl}}: Yami, the head of the Cat Tribe, though it's not blatantly obvious. Chocola, too, but she's an android designed to look like a cat.
* ChekhovsGun: Kyoko's Time Staff.
* ColorfulThemeNaming: All of the Strangers have a color in their last name, except for Sakataki, Hizuki and Rin. As follows:
** '''Su'''omi Kyoko - "scarlet"
** '''Momo'''to Karen - "peach, pink"
** '''O'''nishi Sarai - "yellow"
** '''Sou'''ba Mizuno - "azure"
** Sa'''midori''' Youju - "blue-green"
** Chi'''ryoku''' Fuuma - "green"
** Kira'''shi''' Toba - "purple"
** '''Shira'''ki Setsuna - "white"
** Rei'''koku''' Yami - "black"
* DarkIsNotEvil: Yami, the Dark Stranger. We don't see much of her, but she's one of the good guys and seems really nice.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Yami's eyes look like they could be these.
* ElementalPowers: Most of the Strangers.
** PlayingWithFire: Rin
** MakingASplash: Mizuno
** BlowYouAway: Fuuma, and possibly Toba
** ShockAndAwe: Sarai
** AnIcePerson: Hizuki, and Setsuna.
** GreenThumb / PetalPower: Karen and Youju, sort of.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Kyoko and Ui are the princesses of Earth. The other female Strangers are technically princesses of their respective tribes.
* FacialMarkings: Mizuno.
* GenderBlenderName: Setsuna (Male), Ginga (Male).
* HalfHumanHybrid: The Kirito tribes are made up of people who have both human and animal or plant DNA.
* ImprobableAge: All of the Kirito tribe leaders are teenagers, or younger.
* TheKingdom
* MeaningfulName: Mizuno--of water--is the Water Stranger, and the leader of the Fish Tribe.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler: Kyoko/Sakataki, Karen/Toba, Mizuno/Sarai]] to some degree, and Chocola/King.
* OneWorldOrder
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: The Fish Tribe. Mizuno only gets legs when she turns into a Stranger. Her brother, Ginga, on the other hand, is never seen with a tail.
* PairTheSpares: Not completely this trope, but it ''has'' to go somewhere:
-->'''Ui:''' "Father! Father! Ui wants to get married, too! To Hizuki!"
* PointyEars: Kyoko.
* SayItWithHearts: Hizuki. A lot.
* SeashellBra: Averted with Mizuno; she wears a shirt.
* SixthRanger: Heck, all but a couple of the Strangers.
* TheStoic: Setsuna seems to be this.
* TimeMaster: Kyoko, if you haven't already figured it out.
* UnusualEuphemism: Sort of. Kyoko tells Ui that she and Sakataki will be doing a disappearing act, meaning that they aren't going to the party. When she relays this message to their father, he comments: the words she keeps teaching Ui.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Most of the Strangers. Justified in that they all have animal/plant DNA as well as human. Except Kyoko, but she's a brunette.
