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.

This anime is the best combination of CGDCT and action. It doesn't have perfect graphics, but the story is amazing. I bought the light novel! It is my favourite! It is a perfect combination of moe and action.

You will how the protagonist enters the magic world. Don't forget watching the specials. Originally they were episodes 11 and 12. I had to wait 1 year to see the end of storie.

Maybe one more volume can be released. I send a message for one of responsibles and he said the volume 4 is not the end. We must wait. Storyworks is one of authors.

The things Marchen Madchen actually got wonderfully right

I swear this is a review but I first have to start off with a bit of background of this anime since I believe people are a bit too harsh in their mocking of this show.

While 2018 brought us some terribly animated anime such as the likes of My Sister My Writer and Master of Ragnorok, Marchen Madchen became known as the biggest disaster of the year and is likely set to become the next metaphorical warning pillar of how badly things can go during anime production since the Beserk remakes. The show's suffering is fairly well-documented ...

The time I watched Märchen Mädchen was when I felt that there was no good anime elsewhere because they are all (well, a lot of them I meant) are mediocre at best. Boy was I right. This anime wasn't particularly dreadful, the art was ok, and the soundtrack was tolerable. But the story and the characters were just so plain and so boring! I'm surprised that I managed to finish all 10 episodes in actuality. I didn't have a care for the main character (I even forgot her name, wow) and I didn't have a care for any of her relationships with the supporting characters. ...
