Grimm Kumikyoku is a collection of some classic famous fairy tails, being retold with some alternative understanding of the characters and world set, giving them some new grim makeup, and sometimes adding a dark twist in the end, giving us some interesting new ways to read those classic old stories.

Each episode is independent of each other, mainly focused on the structural reimagination of the stories being told, following a simple formula that kinda reminded me of the Junji Ito collections, but less grim and dark, and with much more effort put into the drawing quality.

Down to the super upbeat jazz intro (why?? it didn't set the tone for what the anime advertised itself as at all), the choices felt all over the place and downright odd. The first episode as a whole really was the nail in the ...
