Review for complete series
In the 30th century, Princess Kyoko lives among the commoners keeping her identity a secret. When her sixteenth birthday draws near, her father the King insists she prepares for her first public outing - or otherwise, find a way to awaken her twin sister Princess Ui who has been trapped in sleep since their birth. For her sister to wake, Kyoko must find the twelve Time Strangers who, when combined, can shift the clock which holds Ui captive.
Time Stranger Kyoko will leave me sad forever. Although set in the 30th century, the world seems more like an alternative universe. They have technology beyond what we know today, but most elements of this world seem more of a medieval-fantasy setting - a mixture I quite appreciate. This world does not only include powers to shift time but also holds fantasy creatures such as demons, dragons and shape-shifting humans.
Now add to this world the solid cast of the spoiled, stubborn but kind-hearted Princess Kyoko, her bodyguards the two Dragon Prince brothers who couldn't be more unlike, a giant-snake-riding thieving gang, and another lot of enigmatic Strangers to find. The author plays with humour which can sometimes go way over the top but works just right with these characters and their quest.
So what went wrong? I have no doubt that this story was axed. We are introduced to two of the twelve strangers within the first volume, three more in the second volume and - well that leaves the third and final volume to introduce the remaining seven characters. And all of that happens on hardly a page. I just can't imagine that this story, of which the first two volumes had great pacing, was meant to be wrapped up in three volumes. The Strangers are all unique in personality and design and I am sure the author had more in mind than just whacking them in the way she did.
As a result, the whole of the final volume is rushed. After quickly throwing in the rest of the Strangers, all open questions are tied up much faster than one would like and often brushing off serious incidents just in order for the plot to move on. Time Stranger Kyoko could have easily been one of the author's best works had she but had the time to let the characters and plot unfold - but as it is, the story is cut short when it would have needed far more than twice the amount of volumes it actually had.
Although I still love this - there is just so much fun in it - I will never get over thinking about how great it could have been.
