Due to her father's remarriage, robust 16-year-old Himeno Awayuki moves into a large mansion with a beautiful garden—the quintessential dream house for any girl her age. However, much to Himeno's disappointment, her new stepfamily doesn't really seem to like her, as her stepmother often occupies herself with her father, her younger stepsister Mawata ignores her, and her other stepsister—the equally aged Mayune—tries to prank her at every opportunity.

But Himeno doesn't have time to dwell into thoughts of hopelessness—her new life has now become involved with a group of seven magical boys known as the Leafe Knights, after they ask her to become a magical princess who can borrow their powers! Although Himeno accepts their request and becomes the Prétear, she feels doubtful in her abilities to protect the world and its Leafe, the source of energy for all life. Will Himeno be able to find happiness among her new family and also save the Earth from the enemy, the Princess of Disaster?

Ah, another magical girl anime. I loved this because I typically binge watch these types of anime! The mc Himeno has the ability to "preet" with handsome slightly older men. They give her the ability to fight against demon... larva(?) and aid her in her battle against the princess of despair...

(Spoilers here)

In the end I kept getting upset over the deaths that happened (aka Sasame dying to be the princess of despair's knight, and Hayate dying to protect Himeno from the tree) but then they came back to life- and I almost shed a tear after Himeno "died" but then she came back to ...

Mixed Feelings
So I am a big fan of magical girl shows and when I wanted to watch a somewhat shorter show, I landed on this one. It's short, it's sweet, it's a magical girl anime: I enjoyed myself.

But seriously guys, the main conflict of this show is beyond stupid.


So the story... In my opinion, the show moves through it's story beats relatively well and it doesn't try to be too complicated or sophisticated.

Which,, might be what's the problem here. The conflict in this show is SO melodramatic and #firstworldproblems , it's just plain funny. I wanted Himeno to roast the main villain for her ridiculous ...

As a high schooler with little experience watching anime, but plenty of enthusiasm, I jumped at the chance to buy Pretear when I found the series in the bargain bin at Best Buy. If I could go back in time and warn myself against this total waste of money I would. This series belongs in the bargain bin for sure, not in a DVD player.

Even as a 16 year old, when my tastes were far less developed, I was disappointed with this show. The characters are shallow, the plot is pointless and the stakes are very low. It tries to pull at your heart strings ...
