Shamanic Princess / シャーマニックプリンセス is a Japanese anime consisting of 6 OVA episodes. It chronicles the exploits of Tiara, an agent from the Guardian World, who has been sent to Earth to recover the Throne of Yord, a mystical object which is the source of magical energy in the Guardian World. The Guardian World lies in another dimension, and its inhabitants are charged with guarding and controlling magical forces. To this end, the inhabitants possess varying levels of magical power which allows them to change shape, destroy objects, suspend time, or call up elemental beings to do their bidding. The source of power in the Guardian World is the Throne of Yord, a mysterious painting watched over by the Elders, who train Neutralizers to tend the Throne and make sure it is kept safe. One of these Neutralizers (Kagetsu) has stolen the Throne and taken it to Earth for an unknown purpose, causing the Elders to send two different teams to Earth to reclaim the Throne—for if the Throne is away for too long or is destroyed, the Guardian World will be undone.
The story is admittedly confusing, but not to the point that it becomes a distraction. You’ll most likely have to watch it again just to make sense of it all. Basically, an artifact of great power was stolen from the Guardian World, a magical realm. This artifact, known as the Throne of Yord (even though it’s a painting) has captured the sister of its thief. A Guardian named Tiara has been charged with the Throne’s retrieval, only to find out that another Guardian is already on the job. If you get a chance, please watch it, because this is simply a great ova series that should not be ignored! A true classic from the 90’s!
