Otogizoushi websites galore
- I don't know how many of you are watching this series - it isn't yuri,
but it is on topic because of the cross-dressing princess aspect...
In short, it's a Heian sorcery/adventure story in which princess
Hikaru is forced by circumstances to take over the role of her brother
Raikou. As Raikou, Hikaru is traveling the country, defeating
unspeakable enemies, etc. etc, to collect the magatama so the Imperial
Onmyouji (sorcerer,) Abe no Seimei can stop the decay that is killing
Hikaru is uber-serious, and doesn't, sadly, flirt with girls as
Raikou, and she has already fallen for the uber-cool mysterious court
dancer guy (whose real identity is painfully obvious.) As far as yuri
goes, it's a big 0, but if you like the whole girl-prince thing, it's
a pretty cool story. Hikaru clearly makes a better Raikou than Raikou
did. :-) And I always love the Heian clothes and sorcery thing.

him. (Although we were really pissed that Hiromasa didn't cry for Seimei in
the second movie the way Seimei cried for him in the first movie.)
