Hazuki Kagimura is a socially awkward girl with no friends; and having been recently adopted, she struggles to connect with her new family as well. Her only refuge from this painful reality is between the pages of stories where her vivid imagination allows her to live out her dreams of friendship and adventure. However, one day, an old and mysterious text appears in her book bag. On her way back to the library to return it, Hazuki sees a familiar girl who is seemingly invisible to everyone but her. Deciding to follow her, Hazuki is led a hidden library where a world she thought only existed in her dreams awaits her. Märchen Mädchen tells the story of Hazuki's meeting with Shizuka Tsuchimikado, her very first friend, and discovering she has been chosen by the original print of Cinderella to become a powerful mage known as an Origin Master.

Painfully bland on all fronts with strong yuri undertones and constant bouts of unwarranted nudity.


Beautiful and heartwarming story about how narratives can affect people. I have nothing but respect for the staff who stuck with it.


I really have nothing to say about this show, so i’ll be using this spot as my grocery list: shitakes veal
chaurice sausage
corn syrup


I really wanted this to be good but the cast and plot are just so bland. Randomly stripping the main character doesn’t help any either.


Production issues obvious and the story got bland too (as a result?). Despite iatus ep. 9 was very poor quality. “meh” for me, shame really


Would of been amazing if not for production issues with episode 9

Only anime i’ve ever dropped because of there being no point to finish


Loved it, it was super cute
