Mediocre girls' cartoon is nothing worth hype or fangirling about..
I saw this girls' cartoon recently on the Nickelodeon channel in the U.S. and from what I've seen, I hate to say, but I was very underwhelmed. I found the premise for the show to be bland, the animation cheap, the idea of students enrolling at a school for fairytales to be outdated, low-brow and typical, and the cartoon in general to be a bland, mediocre girls' cartoon. The main character, Rose isn't desk-slammingly infuriating, although I did find her English voice to be grating within seconds. Rose's friends felt like one-dimensional, overdone caricatures to me, and the whole setting of fairytale land felt outdated. While the first episode wasn't so bad, I couldn't get past watching the rest of the series. I could barely remember anything from this series because its so bland. It never felt genuine or earnest to me either, it always felt like a bland, sellout cartoon. I'm apparently in the minority, as this cartoon got two seasons and is still airing on Nick Jr. in the U.S. and Latin America, along with other stations around the world. It's a strange mix of a well-received, solid girls' cartoon by some, yet a dull, mediocre Italian cartoon picked up by Nickelodeon that received lots of hate and backlash. While I personally don't hate this series, it's just not something I never found appealing. I just don't get the appeal of this series. It's bland, forgettable, dull, boring, typical, and just sets a really low bar for girls cartoons of today, which is sad, really, considering that there are some fantastic magical girl cartoons.
This is just my opinion, you may judge for yourself~
