Cinderella Monogatari is not a very recent anime. It does not have the special effects that we are now blessed with having.

However, it is blessed with great storytelling and has a nice moral.
Both movie (Disney) and story (by Charles Perrault) do not go in great detail about Cinderella's life before she went to the ball. This series tell a great deal, and, not only that, the twists make the story a bit more realistic, in my point of view.

Fairy tails are always, or almost, the same and have many common components such as: love at first sight (without even knowing each other), read more

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

Cinderella, Cinderella, Cinderella... Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! - Oh wait, wrong soundtrack..

This is YET another take on the classic story of Cinderella. A story of a young maiden forced to do unendless laborious house work under her own noble home by her wicked stepmother. Yep most of us is very much adept and familiar of how the story of this such pitiful maiden goes; but in this Anime adaptation of this classic tale holds a fine re-telling of the story.

What set this apart from the rest is that it gave a much deeper background to Cinderella and the Prince relationship. I'm a sucker for romance and especially read more

Cinderella Monogatari turns out to be an outstanding and incredible romance series from the early 90s. It was made to be in-character and similar to our love of Hans Christian Anderson books. Cinderella is a decent and lovely lady but lives a eccentric and hardworking life after her dad leaves and her mother is dead. Two stepsisters and a stepmother treat Cinderella awfully and make her responsible for her stuff. But with the help of a couple of sweet and kindhearted animals and a fairy godmother, it improves her life. To me, it seems fair to me. The art was the old 90s but a read more

This has got to be my favorite version of the Cinderella Story so far. Now, Cinderella as a character in general is my favorite character, so I'm a little biased. But in every other Cinderella movie, I have never really felt like I've watched Cinderella really progress at all. In general, Cinderella stories are short - Abused girl has to do all the chores, is nice and kind to everybody, isn't allowed to go to the ball, gets magicked into the ball, meets the prince, Glass slipper - it can be summarized very easily. But this show does a very good job of ... not read more

I have always loved the story of Cinderella. This is by far one of the best adaptations I have ever seen. It was such a good story. I loved how the prince and Cinderella met before the ball. The music was great. At times it was a bit louder than the dialogue though. I personally liked the character designs and thought the prince was very handsome. It had a lot of humor, kidnappings, sword fights, and adventures. It was really a great story that I would recommend to everyone.

The story is more than impressive , It talks about many things such as: friendship, helping otheres , cairing for otheres , Courage and The most important part of The anime is "Love".
It takes abaute cindrella’s story But in a different way , The anime shaw as the Beautiful Relationship Between The prince and cindrella .
And more you see the anime The more you love the story .
For Me I’v seen these anime When I was a little girl , and Still loving these anime more and more every Time I watch it .
