In 19th century France, a struggling single mother, Fantine, leaves her three-year-old daughter Cosette in the care of her new acquaintances, the Thernadiers. Unfortunately, Cosette's caretakers prove to be anything but loving, and the poor girl is subjected to repeated abuse and forced servitude. Still, she endures the torment in the hopes of seeing her mother once again.

One night, while doing errands for her host family, Cosette is assisted by an honorable stranger named Jean Valjean. After a brief conversation with the young girl, Jean acknowledges her as the type of person he has been seeking and rescues her from the clutches of the Thernadiers. They make their way to a nearby town where Cosette enjoys a new life thanks to her savior.

Under Jean's guidance, Cosette promises to help others with her newfound freedom. She pledges to heal the nation, ensuring that no one else suffers her fate. Though the road ahead is paved with tragedies left by the French Revolution, this idealistic girl will not rest until France is freed from poverty and suffering.

Story: 8/10
Despite the fact that the story is attractive and outstanding, it does not stop falling into the predictable and simple, however these factors do not prevent the enjoyment of the plot.

Art: 6/10
As for the general animation, it can be seen at a glance that it does not intend to stand out in this way, however it is not entirely bad, since the quality is not reduced throughout the series, in addition to the fact that the style used fits perfectly with the period, on the other hand, aspects such as the characters, are characterized by having a fairly successful design in terms of how ...
