Märchen Mädchen T.V. Media Review Episode 1

Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart?

Let’s get this started by introducing our lead, Hazuki Kagimura. She’s a timid girl currently facing numerous life problems. Her family relationship is nonexistent and as for friends she has absolutely none. Additionally, she got a bit of a bad habit going on. This habit of hers takes place when ever she’s in a difficult situation or in pain. Hazuki will run off and escape into the world of books. She currently views her condition as problematic, yet her love for stories would turn the next chapter in her life.

The life of Hazuki was all about to change upon finding an unexpected book. She knew not where the book came from, but after holding it she could now see a cloaked girl running about. Her curiosity sparked instantly and she took off right behind her. Our hooded girl was quick to turn the tables, though. She threatens Hazuki to back off, consequently she forgets her bag by doing so. Hazuki is back to the chase in order to return the left behind bag. The chase leads her to a place she had never seen before, it’s a brand new library. It is within this library that she witnesses her first taste of magic and is tossed into another world. Upon arrival she is greeted by a student, however in this world she’s a suspicious person. One thing leads to another and she’s chased all over. She’s pushed to her limits, but in the end she finally links back up with our cloaked girl.

Talk about a lot of running in just one episode. We’re also left off on a cliffhanger here, so expect an explanation of many things next episode. Moreover, I’m a bit concerned with the animation. An opening episode having so many stitch-able images means lots of panning camera angles. Hopefully we get something other than running next time. Lastly, I hope you’re ready for fanservice because Hazuki isn’t shying away from the camera. There does appear to be some censorship by the way of conveniently placed objects. Won’t truly know until blu-rays are out. Anyhow, let’s cut to the chase. Enjoy!
