    It just clicks with me.
    This is just a show that clicks with me. It has quite a few generic plot points, but it feels like it knows what its doing and isnt just going through the motions. I give this 5 stars because i know this is going to be my favorite anime of the season if it can keep this mood going. I laughed a few times, i went awww a few times, and i just enjoy my time with it. and that doesnt happen often

    Perfect for what it is
    So far Märchen Mädchen is a very simple show that takes an extremely honest approach to it's themes of loneliness, rejection, and recovery. It doesn't try to be an in-depth analysis of the human psyche and and it doesn't need to be. One of my favorite shows, Sailor Moon, is similar in that aspect, the plot isn't particularly innovative but its characters were relatable and fun to watch, I could ...

    Not the worst thing I've ever seen
    This is by far not the worst anime I've seen. Yet it's still very bellow average. The 1st half(what's now more then half) is spent to get our MC to base mode. Oh god does it disappoint once you get there. Once there it feels forced and lazy from then with our MC "power" being a vague "hit you with the feels" mucguffin attack. Striving to live off "cuteness" while still desperate to be the "for ...

    Magical girls. It's not bad. But it's not great either.
    Drawing and animation quality are good. However the plot setup in episode 1 is extremely sloppy. They were trying too hard to cram too much information into the first episode, and it felt extremely forced and unnatural. Plot pacing and structure was a lot more normal in the second episode.

    This is anime about a girl who discovers she has ties to a magical world, and will have to find her place ...

  • This anime is incomplete
    This was one of my favorite amines for the winter season but unfortunately it got cut short due to production delays at the studio. This anime is entertaining but as of right now it doesn't look like the last 2 episodes will be airing on crunchy roll any time soon so I cant recommend it. If episodes 11 and 12 do end up on on here at some point this review will change to a 5 star

  • With the Power of On Fleek Kicks
    A socially awkward bookworm gets picked by a fairytale to beat the bejeebers out of other fairytles chosen girls. As fighting people with the power of makeovers and the fleekest kicks is a little stupid, she decides to write her own darn book.

    This series really did have my attention. There were plenty of great personalities and big battles to entertain me. I really liked the themes of ...

    Main character so whiny and annoying it ruined it.
    I detest whiny main characters, and this character has more whine than your local vineyard. If you like "Woe is me," this character is for you.

    The entire premise of the character is, they're so whiny that they have to enter fantasy land with magic to have even a remote level use usefulness.

    This is immediately offset by their crying about not instantly being everyone's friend and (GASP) ...

  • Gave me some Catharsis
    I've never really known many anime that give viewers a good feeling of closure when watching a specific story arc, but I truly enjoyed this one, despite it being kind of deus ex machina style. Sure the protagonist is annoying at times but I don't think I've seen a storyline that's as enjoyable as this in a while. There isn't any (or barely any) fanservice that detracts from the story like others, ...

  • A good but slow start to show
    After the first 6 episodes I am still unsure how to review this, at this point though it is a 4 star show for me. The entire reason I docked the star was the show pacing is just so slow for a 12 episode show. The plot does not even start to move forward until the 6th episode. Taking half the episode count for the introduction arc is kinda odd and worries me for the pacing of the second half of ...
