Set in the year 2004, Binzume Yousei is a slice-of-life fairy tale that revolves around four fairies, each represented by four unique colors as seen with their magical bottle jars. These fairies are the extremely peppy Kururu, the reserved and feminine Chiriri, the samurai-loving tomboy Sarara, and the quiet yet quirky Hororo.

Fascinated by the human world, these fairies arrived from the fairy world in hopes of participating in the annual traditions and overall way of human life. However, they have a very limited understanding of the human world. Luckily, they are befriended and guided by two humans—"Sensei-san," a university student who they live with, and a first-grade girl they call "Tama-chan," who is sometimes as naive as the fairies themselves.

Though these bottle fairies have strange ideas and sometimes have difficulty understanding this new world, they try to make the most of the human experience in their own cute little ways.

Overall, this anime was pretty enjoyable to watch because of its mild humor and tendency to overflow with cutesy themes.

The plot of Binzume Yousei, or in English, Bottle Fairy, revolves around 4 fairy girls named Sarara, Chiriri, Kururu, and Hororo, who are trying to become human by learning about the outside world and how humans live. With help from the one who looks after them, called "Sensei-san," they do just that. But, in the process, their neighbor, a 7-8 year old girl named Tama-chan, misinterprets some of the things humans do, and passes it off as advice to the fairies.

This gets repeated in each episode, ...

Xebec is one of those studios with a decent output that I've somehow managed to largely overlook. I've reviewed three of their works so far. The good Rinne No Lagrange, the mediocre Bakuretsu Hunters and the downright terrible Mnemosyne. One trend you may notice is that these works tend to be for older audiences. So, how does a studio like Xebec handle an anime with children as the primary audience? To find out let's look at Bottle Fairy.

Bottle Fairy doesn't have a cohesive story so much as it does a scenario. Four faeries associated with the seasons come to Earth in bottles where ...

Mixed Feelings
Just before we go into this review I wanted to say the only reason I saw this title was because I wanted to lower my mean score, I am picky and because of that I watch too many good anime. Keep in mind though I saw the dub, which I heard wasn't as good since they took out the puns. I got to tell you right off the bat that this show is almost too cute for me, after the first episode I got used to the cuteness though, but does that mean it will hold up to being a good series? ...
