Synopsis

Spring is here, but not in the air as a strange spell of red snow has also appeared—setting the stage for the story of 16-year-old Himeno Awayuki. After her father's remarriage, Himeno's ordinary low-class life changes as she and her father move into her step-family's lavish mansion. Though she misses her late mother and feels unwelcome in her new home, Himeno refuses to give in to loneliness.

Unexpectedly, Himeno's life is further shifted from the ordinary after meeting a little boy while heading to school. This encounter leads her to wake up in another world where she later finds him with six other boys, all wearing strange outfits! This group of seven, the Leafe Knights, protect the source of energy of all life, Leafe, from the Princess of Disaster. As the villain begins to steal Leafe through her red snow, the Knights find themselves unable to protect it by themselves.

Their only hope is the legendary Pretear, a princess who can help protect the Leafe and turn the snow white. Though Himeno doesn't believe them at first, she later accepts the Leafe Knights' request to become the Prétear after seeing the Princess of Disaster's evil seeds for herself—an action that begins this dramatic magical girl take on Snow White.

Created with the historical fairy-tale of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" in mind, Pretear proves to be a mediocre and lacking tale of one school-girl's journey to save the world with the aid of seven, note-worthy adorable, magical young men.

The story takes place in the present-day world, where magic and special powers are nothing but intriguing elements in fantasy novels. The main protagonist, sixteen year old Himeno, is initially presented as an ordinary girl with her share of problems. However, almost as immediately as she is introduced, it is made clear that there is more to Himeno than meets the eye.

If you have heard or read of the usual fairytale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves", then this anime will certainly resemble that old story from the past. Except this time, the princess isn't all cute and friendly. She's got a short temper and lives in a hard situation with her family - introducing, Miss Himeno Awayuki. This girl only wants to live a normal life, but finds herself wounding into the strangest situations - a great twist to the original "Snow White" story.

The manga art is quite sketchy, and at times the lines are so thick that the visual alone is blurry and difficult read more

Oprah: Audience, may I please draw your attention to this Manga's cover.

What do you see?

A two-year-old's drawing of a girl holding flowers?
Yes that is absolutely correct, and it just so happens that this story was made by that two-year-old.

*Audience applause*

Don't believe me, read this and then come back and see me and ask for forgiveness knowing I was right.

The story was very 'Disney' aka. 'very Snow White', 'very 'it's so sweet that the next day the dentist gave me 5 cavities'': 'very CHILDISH'. If I knew I'd signed up for a depth-less, happy-ending-ed kind of story full of I-feel-so-sorry-for-myself and woe-is-me-I-am-SO-worthless-please-someone-pity-me characters that after opening read more

Remember the pretty stories of Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty, you think of a little damsel in need of rescuing. You rarely think of the damsel being the one able to help save the knight in shinning armor but that’s sort of the feeling about this. Such a pure and sweet little girl with a heart of gold; YA RIGHT! This little princess isn’t as pure as the story but she does have a small sad story to tell. With an alcoholic Dad who didn’t really bring money in with his books, she pretty much had to grow up fast and take care of read more
