Self-styled pessimist Tamahiko Shima lives alone in the mountains of Chiba after losing the use of his right hand in the same car accident that took his mother's life. Deemed incapable by his father and other wealthy relatives, he has been forced into exile; he experiences idle days of reading and sleepless nights of irrepressible angst. True to the Shimas' famous pride and determined not to disgrace his family, Tamahiko is resigned to his new duty—stay in the mountains and wait for death to put an end to his suffering.

However, on one snowy night, Tamahiko's insomnia is interrupted by someone knocking at the door. He then meets the 14-year-old Yuzuki Tachibana, who announces that she has come to be his future wife! Suddenly, Tamahiko remembers his father promising to send him a bride to assist him with impediments to his daily life.

Although she was sold as a bride to repay her family's debts, Yuzuki proves to be thoughtful, diligent, and dedicated to Tamahiko. Will the world-weary teenager prove insensitive to the rare breeze of kindness her presence brings to his monotonous existence?

Though there’s a lot of amazing anime in this season,but honestly this is the best one so far for me.
The reason ?
The amout of sweetness and wholesomeness in this anime is far exceed the amount that I can handle,not a bad thing though in fact it’s actually a good thing.
It’s been a long time since a romance anime can give me such warmness and happy feeling after watching every episode,usually romance anime these days can be tedious and very boring,well not this one,I can assure you,there’s no single episode that deserved to be called “boring”.the sweetness that this show read more

This review has minor spoilers, no major plot points are talked about.
Remember that almost everything I say is my opinion.

I believe Taishou Otome Otogibanashi was made to bring happiness into the world, so my scores will be hooked to that belief. I'll start off by saying this is one of those "feel good" anime, there is positivity everywhere. I know this will turn some people off straight away. It's very easy to tell if you'll like the anime or not, so trust your gut feeling on this one. Please read the synopsis before continuing.

Note that I primarily score from 1-5 instead of 1-10.
Story: 4/5
Art: 4/5

Taishou Otome Otogibanashi is a tone-deaf masterpiece, completely contradictory by nature, the anime proposes a romance that is barely believable and a sense of having to completely suspense your disbelief against the strange forces of wholesomeness and eye candy relationships. While the anime itself have a bunch of extremely respectable features that I will explain later, the final taste is that this is something that shouldn't exist, or at least, it shouldn't exist as it is.

The anime is not offensively bad, honestly, the comedy works extremely well with the usage of exaggerated emotional reactions, the characters are somehow charismatic, and the energy that the anime read more

Taishou Otome is one of those romance animes that has the power to give you diabetes because of its sweetness overdose: from the characters, plot, storyline, dialogue, etc.

The manga is on par with this anime adaptation. Since the chapters in the manga are very short and it only has one major arc, Taishou Otome really exceeded my expectations. People compare this anime to Tonikawa Kawaii, which I find it interesting, because of how sweet of our two beloved main characters. Their blossoming romance and cute romantic moments, including dialogue, really strikes my heart to invest to watch this anime more. Common thing between those read more
