"Princess Lapis of Sorcerland is next in line for the throne but she doesn't really inspire confidence in her parents because of her immaturity. She has the powerful ability of the Magic Eraser, a power that negates whatever magic it is directed at. But she doesn't use it very wisely. At the beginning of the show she destroys an entire floating garden, bringing it crashing to the ground in order to save a baby bird that has fallen out of its nest. Then there's also her insatiable craving of pudding. So Lapis' mother decides to send her on a journey in order to improve her character. The problem is that instead of teleporting her to a site that is three days travel away, she sends her so far away that it will take her a month to get home! To help her on the journey, she sends Jii, Lapis' teacher of 15 years, Kohaku, the immortal warrior, and a small sprite that is her constant companion.

It's not going to be an easy walk back to the Diamond Palace. Lady Topaz, Witch of the North and Collector of Pretty Girls is out to get Lapis. Topaz makes Dr. Evil look competent. She wants to capture Lapis even though every time she gets involved with her, she ends up defeated. They will have to fight fearsome monsters, fight Lapis' appetite when they come upon a Pudding Forest, and must battle the Three Demons of Fitness who have enslaved an entire city to exercise against their will.

Detatoko Princess was funny. It's pretty much a satire of magic girl fantasies. Lapis is as dumb as a bag of nails and Topaz is her equal, in stupidity. Lapis seems more worried about her own skin that being noble. For instance, whenever there's a life-threatening situation she always throws Kohaku in harm's way. Just because he's immortal doesn't mean he doesn't feel pain! Jii's way of defeating monsters is showing them math drills. It's more adult-themed even though it says 13+. It does have a little nudity. It's just good-natured fun.

I would also recommend the 2 dvd set Magical Play."

"Lapis is a princess and magical girl from Sorcerer Land who loves pudding and is a little immature and ditzy. She uses her magic eraser power once to often and destroys things. To teach her responsibility, her mother tries to send her on a short journey to a lake in the kingdom and accidently sends her much farther. the whole family is a little spacey. they send her teacher and a protector after Lapis. The 3 episodes are all about Lapis's return to her kingdom while a witch wants her for her pretty little sister collection and she helps the people she encounters. I think it's funny and I'm glad it was finally licenced. While it's only 3 episodes, they are long enough and unlike many OAVs there is a complete ending; you aren't left hanging. I do wish another OAV had been made or it had been made into a series. It's definitly worth a watch."
