Synopsis

Long, long ago, there existed a world of magic and science. God, afraid of man's potential, split the world in to the world of science, Elde, and the world of magic, Fandavale. One day in Fandavale, a terrible witch named Cendrillon (Cinderella) revives. Cendrillon plots to rule both worlds, and searches for the "key" which holds tremendous power.

A young boy from Elde by the name of Sōta meets a mysterious girl from Fandavale, Akazukin, and her talking wolf companion, Val. Sōta learns that he is the key Cendrillon is searching for. Now it is up to Akazukin, Val, and the other Fairy Musketeers to protect Sōta from Cendrillon and her Nightmarelians who wish to obtain the power he mysteriously possesses.

Most anime aimed at kids in Japan is for the sake of merchandising. Otogi-Jushi Akazukin is no exception, but it is also one of the few that surpass the commercial need and becomes something respectable in its own right.

Akazukin plays on one of the most familiar of story devices; fairy tales, and still manages to come out with a story all its own. At first, Akazukin gives off the presence of a magical girl show, and though it keeps that essence, its far heavier on the action than most; a factor that works in favor of the series rather than against it. Moreso, it abandons read more

One of the few ‘weird’ titles in my list, this one. Me being both male and adult…completely the opposite of the target-audience for the show. I started this because I was interested in what is currently made for the little ones in Japan, and wondered whether it would make me feel nostalgic. Or if I would even consider it good. Fairy Musketeers was picked because it was (and is) legally available for streaming on ANN and looked childish, so yeah. There you have it.

Plot- and premise wise, Fairy Musketeers is pretty unoriginal (no surprise, and no complaint): Take a Fairytale Book from your average shelf read more

Otogi-Jushi Akazukin is an anime that combines Fairy Tale motifs and Magical Girl elements into a colorful and fun adventure series. With title comes from a combination of the words "Otogibanashi" or Fairy Tale and "San Jushi" or Three Musketeers. In fact the series logo has "Fairy Musketeer" right on it, in English. Makes me think this was meant to licensed outside of Japan.

[ Story ]

True to it's name, Otogi-Jushi Akazukin has fairy tales as it's bread and butter. In fact there's an entire world where many Grimm fairy tales are blended into a vivid culture reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda series. Magical read more
