YMMV: Princess Resurrection

  • Complete Monster: Prince Severin, a cowardly Smug Snake, is the opponent against whom the titular princess, Hime (normally a calm, collected Lady of War), came the closest to losing her cool. Before the series even began, Severin used his necromantic powers to raise an army of zombies and sent them to kill Hime, causing her to lose all of her blood warriors, something which she still considers her greatest failure. Then, he does it again in Volume 5, infecting a whole city with a zombie plague and causing hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent victims, just to kill Hime. Unlike Hime, who genuinely cares about her blood warriors despite her outwardly cold demeanor, Severin abuses and humiliates his servants every chance he gets. Finally, he's the reason Hime hates being called by her actual name of Lilian: that's the name Severin gave to his cat, whom he tortured to death For the Evulz, so it is likely that he wanted to do the same to Hime as well.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Hime has too many to list. Hiro, as of chapter 47 is stepping up. Hime gets sent 9 years in the future and that version will inevitably die if he saves the present. What does he do? He goes into undead mode and swears to exceed the future. He then proceeds to do so.
    • One of Hime's greatest comes in the manga when Kinski believes he has killed her and is en route to procure her blood so that he can continue to live. Upon reaching the mansion, though, Hime, very much alive, informs him that he may not come in.
  • Damsel Scrappy: Averted completely for Sawawa, thankfully, which is unusual for someone with a weirdness censor.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Severin and Sylvia.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Hime/Hiro and Reiri/Rize, sadly the manga ends without any Relationship Upgrade but the two ships are the closest to that point.
  • Fetish Fuel: Riza's arms, Keziah's near permanent shirtlessness, Reiri's eating habits and panty shots, the fact that Sylvia enters the story proper Bound and Gagged and the very concept of blood warriors.
  • Fetish Fuel Station Attendant: The future version of Reiri is hotness incarnate, and amazingly goes the entire time she's shown without a Panty Shot at all.
  • Foe Yay: Riza and Reiri are sort of rivals more than enemies.
    • Still, there is a lot of Suspiciously Specific Denial brought up when anybody mentions how odd it is that they work together. Especially on Riza's part. Very foe yay indeed.
    • By the end of the Manga the two are considered by the fandom to be the Beta Couple to Hime and Hiro's OTP.
  • Mind Game Ship: Sylvia to Hime.
  • Moe: Hiro, Flandre, Mermaid and Riza, sometimes.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Arguably two - the first being the unknown mage who suggested the legs-for-voice swap to a mermaid, and used her to power his ghost-collecting ship, and the second being when Severin unleashes the Zombie Apocalypse on a town just to kill Hime.
    • Sylvia's are when she turns Emil into a blood warrior and lets him loose on his former subordinates. She also kills Hime in the Bad Future.
  • Nightmare Fuel: There's buckets of it everywhere in this manga but the whale bus is of the more mundane sort.
    • Hime can be more than capable of handing this out. For example, in episode 22 of the anime she and her band capture and imprison three nigh-invulnerable werewolf Blood Knights sent to assassinate her. In order to to remove them as a threat, she she goes into the room where they are being held captive and shoots them with silver bullets again and again until they are no longer able to regenerate. Worst of all, she tells them right off that this is what she is planning to do, and proceeds to commence firing. For most of the night. Wow.
  • The Scrappy: Hiro is absolutely detested by the fans, who can't seem to stop complaining about him being a useless coward, completely ignoring that he's just a little boy, and even despite this he acts unusually brave, but lacks the superhuman strength of everybody else. Some are willing to go so far as to imply that he's also selfish, and the only reason he's willing to risk his life for Hime is because 1) he knows he can't die and 2) if Hime dies, he loses his immortality. It isn't helped by the fact that the TV anime ended just before the point where Hiro starts to show more ability in the manga.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: in Chapter 87, Sylvia's ginormous breasts appear to have shrunk after she lost her royal powers.
