Grimm Otogi is a descendant of the Grimm Brothers, authors of the well known Grimms' Fairytales. Upon picking up a mysterious book he discovers in his house, Otogi is attacked by a demon.

He soon learns that the Grimm brothers vowed to sacrifice the lives of their descendants in exchange for the fairytales, forcing Otogi to defeat the demons from these cruel and twisted stories if he wishes to survive.

Was looking forward to a neat, short fantasy story but was unfortunately disappointed by the mediocre story and art.

The art is nothing special and can even seem wonky at times. Action scenes don't seem very dynamic and the character design is low par.
A lot of classic fairytale characters from the Brothers Grimm are depicted as bishonen that don't have a lot to do with the original characters anymore.

The story was obviously cut short, has more of an open ending and introduces new characters up to the last second.

I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking for a short fantasy with a good story read more

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a short fantasy series to waste a little time on. The art is good throughout and it’s easy to get caught up in the story for the hour or so that it takes to finish the series. The plot is pretty predictable and the characters are mostly one note, but despite that it’s a fun read.
Just to give everyone a fair warning, I found the ending unsatisfying. If you’re just in it for the ride it likely won't bother you, but if you come to be invested in the characters (rookie mistake when reading short series read more
