Within one's Book of Fate is their destiny. Written by the mysterious Story Tellers, these books decide every small detail of one's life. Some Story Tellers, however, choose to interfere with the stories of others rather than write their own. These malevolent beings are known as Chaos Tellers, who seek to ruin stories by overwriting the Books of Fate.

Ex, Reina, Tao, and Shane were born with blank books. Ostracized by society due to this abnormality, they abandon their respective stories in search of better lives. In the vast unknown, they encounter famous fairy tale characters such as Cinderella, Momotarou, and Snow White. All the while, they work to subdue the Chaos Tellers and return peace and order to the stories.

Just a warning note, I knew of the game and have played it at the time of its release. However, even though I did enjoy and see great potential in its story line, I still dropped playing the game pretty early on since I saw no chance of an ending to the game's plot. This review will be heavily affected by that experience.

Also, this review will have heavy spoilers for the series and only serves as a view to it instead of a conclusion. If you really want to know what it's like, try the series out anyway.

For the first thing, as I mentioned read more

Kingdom Hearts: Brothers Grimm Edition!

Mobile game anime adaptation has distilled what with the revival of isekai animes and whatnot but seeing, Grimms Notes The Animation and LA's attitude towards mobile game adaptations of it piquing LA's interest towards the mobile game itself, does the anime do any favours?

Grimms Notes The Animation takes place in a world where everyone has books that tells of their fate and the people are cordoned off in "Story Zones", but "Chaos Tellers" invade writing and twisting the fates of the Story Zones, but it's up to those with blank books to change fate and realign the Story Zones to their read more

If you want to know whether you should watch this anime, the most basic notion I can give you of it is that it delivers very visceral enjoyment- good music and clean art, a bit of action, the glee of seeing how they adapt each tale, and so on...however, in what I surmise to be the result of a far too direct adaptation, this anime fell quite short of what it could have been. It's a classic case of a jaw-dropping premise resulting in work with a pile of wasted potential. It can be enjoyed, I certainly did, but don't expect any life-changing experience out read more
