Prince of the Monster Kingdom, Kaibutsu Taro, is sent to Earth for training the day of his crowning ceremony, along with his three attendants – Dracula, Franken and Wolfman. There, they meet a young boy and his older sister, Hiroshi and Utako, who become friends with them and teaches them about friends and family and what’s important about life. At the same time, the Human World is in danger from the Demon Realm who are using the humans to gain power.

I think a large part of why I liked this was because it was pretty similar to Sailor Moon. Instead of the young magical girls, it has monsters. The Demons are similar to the villains in Sailor Moon though. They’re using human desires in order to get their energy to resurrect someone. Then it’s obviously cheesy. It feels like a kids show, but the humor and emotion in it is good enough and entertaining enough to be good. No, it’s not the best show out there. But it’s good once you get pass the cheese. Hiroshi and Utako are complete idiots. Even when they seem to realize something is wrong, they just don’t care. Leading to Kaibutsu getting hurt and being really cute. Especially when he cries. His crying is some of the cutest I have ever seen. Plus, there’s lines like “lies are the best!” and “insults are the best!” His giant ears throw me off though…

Anyway, I say it’s definitely worth watching, or at the very least, it’s worth giving it a chance.
