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 Anime is one of my favorites..actually, the story is more than just Cinderella's 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 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

Over all the build up of the characters and the ending was good. Seemed at times you couldn't tell their feelings or thoughts clearer, but I liked it in this anime, made for read more

Cinderella was the only story that my mother told me when i was around 9 years old. So i remembered it clealy. I watched Disney's three movies on Cinderella. But here I would admire Japanese Anime writers creativity. I know that the story is well-known all over the world so no need for retelling. But this anime's uniqueness lies in the serialization of the fairytale story, which is very short. A relationship, especially the one which could lead to marriage, wouldn't be so short-noticed such a " mid-night' party event.
In this story the Scenario of Cinderella's daily life and her personality and friendly nature read more
