I planned this post ages ago...
but was too busy to write it
and now some of my thoughts are lost...
And I got involved in this anime too much
and forgot to take screenshots or wrote down quotes.
Eh... this anime is worth writing a better post...
It sounds dumb, right?
Magical girls? And ballet?
You can imagine something similar to
Card Captor Sakura (or even worse)
plus ballet which will make it even dumber.
Nothing more misleading.
What you get is an absolutely beautiful fairy tale
with ballet and classical music which creates even more magical atmosphere.
Episodes are named after famous ballet stories
and this is not a coincidence, but you can find a connection within their content.
Ant this connection really makes sense. It seems natural.
Once upon a time a man died.
His work was creating stories to tell other people.
This is how the story begins.
Like typical fairy tale.
The action takes place in a city with a ballet school
where stories come true.
There is a small duck who turned into a girl,
a prince who lost his heart,
and a ballet teacher who is... a cat.
It can all sounds really childish and a little silly,
but in fact every second of this anime is a food for mind and eyes.
Welcome to the stage I've been saving.
Now. tell me the best story that was ever told! Tell it to me with no regard for your lives!
I will risk and say that it is one of the best story
I have ever seen.
This is one of this anime that I truly enjoy and find deeper meaning,
but I would also love to show it to my children one day.
It is just for everyone.
And if you additionally love ballet you will be in heaven.
There is so many gorgeous AMV on the Internet...
when you start watching them.. prepare for losing at least a few hours...
I chose two of them to show^^
