Hazuki Kagimura is a socially awkward girl with no friends; and having been recently adopted, she struggles to connect with her new family as well. Her only refuge from this painful reality is between the pages of stories where her vivid imagination allows her to live out her dreams of friendship and adventure. However, one day, an old and mysterious text appears in her book bag. On her way back to the library to return it, Hazuki sees a familiar girl who is seemingly invisible to everyone but her. Deciding to follow her, Hazuki is led a hidden library where a world she thought only existed in her dreams awaits her.

Märchen Mädchen tells the story of Hazuki's meeting with Shizuka Tsuchimikado, her very first friend, and discovering she has been chosen by the original print of Cinderella to become a powerful mage known as an Origin Master. Hazuki enrolls at Kuzunoha Girl's Magic Academy where she learns to conquer her fears and believe in her ability to create her own amazing story.

Jiggly jiggly heaven in real life!

The show that literally melted!

There is a lot that can be said about Madchen Madchens decline in quality to episode 9 where after a two week break it came out with animation that rivaled Animegataris' club's animation. It was disappointing and memed on by about everyone. And it makes sense. That episode was terrible.

But the show isn't just that episode. In fact the rest of the show is quite good and it's unfortunate that this episode will now overtime the good parts of the show with it's infamy.

Yes, there were lackluster parts to the show like the edgy subplot that read more

On each season we are gifted with great anime, there are some anime that are okay, there are bad ones and there's Märchen Mädchen, a masterpiece found in the bottom of a trashcan. Märchen Mädchen has to be one of the most absurd generic anime I've ever seen, not because its bad, but of how ludicrous it is to the point of being insanely funny.

The Opening practically reveals what will happen in the first episodes (The very first one, later in the anime they add a visually different opening) But to sum it up, here's the introduction (Cringe warning):

[A Cliched Magical Girls Tale]

What happens when you combine fairy tales stories, pre-established Anime tropes and stereotypes, and the magical girls genre? The end result is Märchen Mädchen, a battle magical girls show that uses minor aspects of fairy tale origins to create a cliched storyline, shallow characters, and subpar animations.


Story summary: Hazuki Kagimura is a shy and socially awkward high school girl, who doesn’t have any friends. Whenever, she gets upset, she finds a book and quickly immerses herself in it, a condition she calls, ‘Story Syndrome’. One day, she spots a cloaked figure (Shizuka) and follows her read more

It's not a bad anime but it's not an excepcional either. It's a pretty much clichê anime but despite that it's still interesting.

The MC is strong but not strong as in "I can kick every one's arses" but in a loving way, treating other people's wounds as we could see on the latest episode (episode 7).
It's a funny anime with cute girls. despite missing a bit of actual story, it's a good anime to watch while it's releasing.

It's just sad that the team behind this anime gave up on the idea. They took a two or three week break in order to improve animation read more
