Review: Even though this is a short manga series, and a bit older. It still has a good storyline and characters, that are retelling that of snow white in a new way. What gets even better about this series is that it got one season of an anime show! Although not as good as the ones you see today, but still a really good classic.

The one thing I didn’t really care for, for this series was just how slow or too detailed some of it was. Yes the artwork and style is what I like but it did feel a bit off. Almost as if it was missing that something to make it great.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

1-5 volumes.

Manga. Romance. Paranormal. Fantasy. Shojo. Retelling.

Summary: Himeno is a high school freshman who’s having trouble adjusting to the lifestyle of the very rich. Her father, Kaoru, is a one-time famous author of young girls’ novels. One of his greatest fans was Natsue, a wealthy woman who liked Kaoru so much that she snatched him up from their rundown apartment and married him. But Himeno’s life is far from rosy. Her dad tends to take the side of Natsue rather than her, and Natsue’s two daughters from a previous marriage aren’t very fond of their new stepsister. One day, Himeno takes a shortcut to school and meets a young boy. When she takes the boy’s hand, she’s transported to a fantasy world that lies on the brink of extinction. And the one person that can stop it is the girl called “Pretear.”
