When the two girls meet, magic begins. Hazuki Kagimura loves stories, an orthodox girl who is overly imaginative. Because her relationship with her new family does not go well, the environment sends her toward the stories in which she spends her days. One day after school, Hazuki gets lost among the bookcases of the library, leading her to a mysterious school where meets Shizuka Tsuchimikado. It is a magic school where girls (called "mädchen") are selected by the magical texts from which the world's stories are born. Hazuki herself is said to be chosen by the book of Cinderella. In order to become a true magician, Hazuki becomes friends with Shizuka and begins her new life at the school.

This anime is simple: cute girls in a magic school setting performing a list of clichés. This is not a train wreck. This is a train that shouldn’t be made in the first place.

It suffers from the chronic mediocrity of anime industry. The characters are bland. The animation is cheap and dull. But its worst sin is lack of good storytelling. The characters info-dump profusely, and they immediately jump into talking about the upcoming super-important magic-girls tournament in the second episode. In the third episode, leaders of other schools are already there to info dump and show how serious that tournament is. Even other bad read more

I don't know why people find it bad, but it's a great anime! First, people talk about clichés (funny since a lot of people watch normies animes like One Piece, DragonBall, etc.). Yes it's about magical girl, but about a girl too shy in the society that she take her time on book. Maybe it's because I never seen animes like that, but to see a ficitional character who is shy as me made me love the anime. Hazuki discover the world of magic and think it'll be cliché. On the contrary, it's a world where you need to protect the whole planet. Indeed, the read more

IMPORTANT NOTE: I'll be doing this review under a new grading system I've come up with. Since I care more about story, characters, and execution than animation and sound, I will be focusing more on that on my reviews from now on.

To give an idea of what it will be like I will judge an anime on three thing: TO UNDERSTAND, TO FOLLOW, and TO CARE ABOUT. For the grades, there will be five of them on a scale from best to worst: EASY, INTERESTING, SIMPLE, DIFFICULT, and IMPOSSIBLE. I may make side notes about the art and music if necessary but the main read more

Almost everything about Märchen Mädchen is weak.

It has an okay premise, a highschool in another world with magic based on the stories of books. It might be interesting to see how old stories can be turned into interesting magical powers. That is sadly the only interesting part about Märchen Mädchen.
The worst part of the series are the characters. There are a lot of them, especially for a 12-episode show. Outside of the main characters, who aren't that special, none of them are memorable. I wouldn't be able to tell you any of the names of the girls from the other schools. I can barely even read more
