Anime in 200 Words: Fairy Musketeers TV

Premise: Three young girls from a magical kingdom have to defend it from the wicked Cendrillion, and a boy from Erde (Earth) is key to their success. Can they protect him from danger and save the day, or will the forces of darkness defeat them?

Folklore: The Japanese are reinterpreting European stories in this series. People who grew up with fairy tales are likely to recognize Little Red Riding Hood (Akazukin), Snow White (Shirayukihime), Sleeping Beauty (Ibarahime), Hansel, Gretel, Cinderella (Cendrillion), Puss in Boots (Randagio), and more.

Magical Girl: It’s not technically a magical girl show in the traditional way- girl meets mentor, gets powers and a flashy outfit, forms a team, and then fights evil. The musketeers don’t transform or receive new abilities, but every fight requires the same battle cry, the use of silly little egg phones, and stock footage attack sequences. Watch a few episodes, and you’ll see it.

Overall: Fairy Musketeers is a childish anime and a fresh take on both fairy tales and the magical girl genre. There’s not a lot of tension, because the jushi overcome obstacles with ease, but there are certainly worse shows out there.
