It's based on the PC game "Princess Maker" and it was very popular in asia at that time. I believe it's more than 10 years old so many people might not have heard of this game before.

How many Princess Maker games were there anyway?

The only one I remember is 2 because that's the only one that was translated into english, but I've heard there are others including one which came out for Dreamcast, which would be much more recent...

There were 3. All of them are old and apparently won't interest general gaming population here in US. The anime was said to be based on Princess Maker 2 but I don't really see much relation between the game and the anime other than the general background setting and Cube.

There was a Princess Maker collection on dreamcast, which includes PM 2 and 3 I believe. But PC version is better cause you get king's new dress in the game.

Deformed? I guess the unproportional large eyes in all anime characters are not deformed then?

If you don't like the character design, that's fine. But saying it deformed? I don't know about that....

so that what this anime is based on...

I played PM3 myself, and its actually quite entertaining. The game is not that old (1999), and yes all PM series games have the big forehead (I was wondering about that myself).

Hm, no comments on episodes 25 and 26 yet? I was really pretty surprised - the ending was very intense for such a light-hearted show. Of course it finally ends happily, but goes through some pretty dark waters to get there (then again, I can't imagine a show like this ending as 25 leaves things - it would scar kids for life )

Also, I was impressed with Glenda in ep 25 - she gets pretty damn scary fighting the archmage!

Ep 5-7 appear to be subbed according to XF's homepage and AniDB, but I can't seem to find any place to get them

They've all been subbed, but the shows been released slowly and the earlier stuff may of never made it to bittorrent (I used to get it off usenet back then). It would probably be a good candidate for a few batch torrents.

The three missing episodes were easy to get from the XF's irc channel, listed on Animesuki, for those who can't wait for a batch torrent to appear
