Synopsis: When Kouno Tooru transfers late in the semester to an all-boys academy, he's shocked to find the warm welcome he receives. Little does he know that his warm welcome is about to get a little more complicated. Tooru has been nominated to become part of the "Princess System". Three beautiful freshmen boys are selected each year in order to provide moral support to their fellow students. In order to do this, they must dress like girls!
The princesses aren't without leadership though. They have a mentor in the student council president, Arisada Shuya. He's a former princess, having served in the previous year's group. Along with Arisada, the rest of the student council frequently interacts with the princesses. Each has their own unique talents. Their class president, Sakamoto Akira, is sweet and kind, but easily intimidated due to feeling he's in his brother's shadow. Another person who stood out was, fellow student, Natashou Kaoru. He steals every scene he's in as the flamboyant leader of the home economics club. He's also a genius costume designer who only thinks in terms of his designs.
Underneath the silly premise, the characters are all well-developed. They have problems and issues that are quite normal for most kids their age. The way they come together and approach these problems often lead to comedic moments. If you can get past what may seem silly, you'll find yourself wanting to invest in their lives. There was one big issue with the series though. By the time you reach episode 12, you're left feeling as if there should have been more. What happens to the Princesses through the rest of the year?
