The best way to tell a fairy tale
15 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is perhaps the best show any human can ever ask for his/her childhood. I was not born when this first aired, nor was it aired in my country. Alas. I truly wish that I'd seen it when I was young. It's a classic series that is a must for any child.

It is basically an anime (yes, it is made in japan) based on the brothers Grimm's fairy tales. Cinderella, Bearskin, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, you name it! For a kid's show, it's very serious, but have some jokes in it as well. No child should be without this fairy tales and this is one among the best ways to tell them.

If you missed it as a child (like me), you have to make sure that one day when you have children of your own, look up this series and show it to your children. You will not regret it, trust me!
