Synopsis


When the two girls meet, magic begins. Hazuki Kagimura loves stories, an orthodox girl who is overly imaginative. Because her relationship with her new family does not go well, the environment sends her toward the stories in which she spends her days. One day after school, Hazuki gets lost among the bookcases of the library, leading her to a mysterious school where meets Shizuka Tsuchimikado. It is a magic school where girls (called "mädchen") are selected by the magical texts from which the world's stories are born. Hazuki herself is said to be chosen by the book of Cinderella. In order to become a true magician, Hazuki becomes friends with Shizuka and begins her new life at the school.

Saw the first episode.

It's boring tbh and I'm not impressed at the moment. The main girl Hazuki's personality is blend and while I kinda like the overall concept of the show so far, it really needs to do more. Maybe it will improve soon as it's the first episode.

On the other hand, I do kinda like the character chemistry so far.

First episode is now up. New episodes come at 8am Pacific every Thursday: http://www.crunchyroll.com/maerchen-maedchen/episode-1-story-syndrome-759687

Episode 1

Well, the foundation of the show was laid out, but the way it happened just felt really dull. From Hazuki's social awkwardness to her love for books, and the going after Shizuka, as well as being chased around by Yumilia into the hot springs and then out of it while she's in the nude. Yumilia needs to learn not to greet newbies with hostility, all while Hazuki is another one of those generic MCs. Anyway, I'll see where things go as the setup has my interest.

Well it wasn't that bad. Still better than Overlord II episode 1.

As with the general tone of the thread so far, I wasn't really overly impressed either. It's not really terrible or anything, but it just completely failed to click with me at all. I'll give it a little more time but it's going to have to better than it did in Ep1.

What's wrong with everyone? That was great! An isekai with a female MC, that's at least different from just about all the others we've had lately. No one else liked the Re:Zero-esque character designs? I don't know but between this and Death March I'll take this anyday. Ever since Read or Die I've always enjoyed the bookworm girl characters.

Kantoku artwork is SO beautiful. Plus the story looks interesting so I'll keep watching.

Would be a major stretch to call this an isekai.

So far, so good on the Kantoku eyecandy though. Let's see where this show takes us.

Interesting concept that fails to take off due to absolutely terrible writing. When the show isn't being boring, it's stupefyingly inconsistent. A girl who's shy and has no friends, but immediately wants to be friends with a complete stranger because she's wearing a magical cloak? Who then proceeds to be stripped naked and put into a bath without a second word from another complete stranger in a strange world. And claims to be terrible at sports and then in the same sentence declares she's exceptional at running? As funny as the whole naked chase sequence was and the potential meaning of a literal showing up for the first day at school completely naked, the setup was so utterly bungled that it made the sequence feel flat and forced. This is an absolutely terrible way to start a show.

I really want to like this show, I do. But oh my goodness was this episode so fucking SLOW. There was just so many unnecessary things that happened and it just became a mess in the end.
I'll give it one more episode to see if it's something I want to continue. I really like the protagonist and the character designs (I love Kantoku's art) are really cute, so I hope this gets better.

What a way to start the show. Amusing, but nothing too special at the moment. Time shows will anything good happen.

It (obviously) goes without saying, but it's an opinion matter. Nothing else.

Ep 1

The first half of the episode seemed to drag on forever. I do like some of the ideas here, and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of characterization given to Hazuki. Poor girl doesn't have any friends and seemingly no talents (except running apparently) in real life. Her introduction to this new world was certainly less than pleasant too. I do feel pretty bad for her.

Most of the characters shown in the ED looked pretty cool. I'm not really expecting a ton of depth or anything here but with slightly better pacing I'm sure the show could be easy to watch and fun.

Marchen Madchen (Fairy Girls) EP 1“Story Syndrome”

IN Memory Of Author Tomohiro MATSU

That was interesting quite a lively crew / premise going on I like it I have watched a lot of anime but for censorship that gives a whole new meaning to "book cover"

That was another great chase along with A Place Further Than the Universe BTW the pursuer is in that anime too!

The Books are Real Stories


Feisty Yumillia VA Lynn is perfect for this especially being Yumiko Samejima ( l A Place Further Than the Universe ) in that lively foot chase

Some more Noteworthy

High School Fleet Mashiro Munetani
Fuuka / Fuuka Akitsuki
Interviews with Monster Girls / Himari Takanash
Just Because! / Ena Komiya
