When Kilala awakens a sleeping prince named Rei, she magically gains the power of the princesses! But when her friend Erica is kidnapped, she and Rei must set off on a quest to rescue her! Filled with the most popular Disney princesses--Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White, Belle--TOKYOPOP's Kilala Princess is a truly enchanting new series!

My Review:
When I first picked this up I absolutely loved the idea of a manga with Disney princesses in it.  Unfortunately, the series fell a little flat for me.  Kilala was at best annoying and over the top girly.  A little is ok but she is all hearts and butterflies up in her own little world.  As much as I fell in love with Disney and wanted to love this series I was struggling to just get through it.  The drawing however was fabulous with well-defined character emotions.  The Disney princesses and other characters were amazing too.
