Sega’s Lilpri Arcade Trading Card Game Becomes Children’s Anime

Posted on: January 15, 2010

Little Princesses, just like Love and Berry.Sega, which previously found success with its Love and Berry and Mushiking game franchises, is trying to recapture the young girl crowd with Lilpri – Yubipuru Himechen (very roughly, “Little Princess – Change into a Princess With a Shake of Your Finger”), a fiendishly addictive combination of magical girl fantasy and collectible card game. The game lets girls live out fantasy lives as magical princesses, using a point system to buy a huge selection of hairstyles, wardrobes, and accessories for digital avatars Yukimori Ringo, Takashiro Reira, and Sasahara Natsuki.

While this has a near-zero chance of making it over here due to children’s anime being very hard to market, it’ll be interesting to see how they turn a collectible card game into a magical girl show. I’m guessing it will be plotless and cute, with an emphasis on trying to get kids into arcades playing this game, but who knows – some arcade games have made good anime, like, umm…

Okay, I have nothing. Idolmaster and Quiz Magic Academy made pretty bad anime…
