As a small child, Souta lost his mother. He was left only with a fairy tale she had told him, of the world split into two by the will of God, into a world of science and a world of magic. Now, it has become apparent that this tale is at least partly true, and that Souta is the all-important Key of Elde, the linchpin of our world of science. To protect him, the fairy musketeer Akazukin (Red Riding Hood) and her fellow musketeers Shirayukihime (Snow White) and Ibarahime (Sleeping Beauty) must draw him into their own, magical world of Fandavale. Along the way, they must protect him from the wiles of the wicked Cendrillon (Cinderella) and her minions Hansel and Gretel.

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.
