Cinderella is the daughter of a wealthy duke who has remarried to provide her with a mother and sisters. When the Duke travels abroad, Cinderella discovers that her new family is anything but a family. With spoiled stepsisters and a harsh stepmother, Cindrella is forced to cook, clean and manage the household. Yet she remains cheerful, gentle and kind to her family, to her animal friends and to a mysterious boy, named Charles, who seems to have a connection with the prince of Emerald Castle. A whole new story on a classic fairytale.

When Cinderella's cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from the lovable mice Gus and Jaq, and from her Fairy Godmother.

This is my first time writing a review.
At first I didn't think much of it as it is a older anime, but I convinced myself otherwise.

I Did Wonder what it would of turned out to be like.
To my surprise it was a little different then the normal Cinderella stories you hear about, not by much but had a good story that made me want to watch the next episode.

This Anime is one of my favorites..actually, the story is more than just Cinderella's story..it has a pretty good, not spoiled romance and well
created characters..Cinderella is more than awesome and the prince is
just so cool..The story isn't just based on Cinderella's story and that what
makes it enjoyable and a little unpredictable..You would surely love it x3

Directed by Hiroshi Sasagawa (Yatterman) and produced by Tatsunoko Production (Macross), both director and studio has history dating back to notable anime from the 70’s and 80’s.

Most people are familiar with the story of Cinderella, but very few know that there was an anime that came out in the late 90’s with a bit of a spin on the Disney version.

Cinderella’s fathers leaves for a long trip, her mother dies years before, and no sooner after father dearest leaves, Cinderella’s step-mother and sisters begin the treat her as their own personal servant to whip. No sooner than this though Paulette, a seemingly random woman (fairy read more
