Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Funimation: Snow White with the Red Hair
To be honest I couldn't have been farther from the truth! I think the only think I have seen so far that is like Disney's snow white is that crony line the witch asked the mirror and the fact someone eats a poisoned apple.... But even those are somewhat different...
So the thing is I really have to say something about the first prince we meet... Everything in me dislikes this guy... he tries to force Shirayuki into something so awful and then gets mad at her for running away... AND HE IS SO STUPID!!! He is our evil queen if I had to label him! Now for the spoiler and why he is so stupid.... You learn this right away so it isn't tooooo big a spoiler.... Our first glimpse of him is as he is saying the iconic Mirror Line... To which an attendant tells him that he isn't talking to a mirror but is talking to an informant. Our dear prince says "He's telling me what he saw so that's basically the say thing" or something like that.... He really said a person was the same as a talking mirror!!!! Really?!?!?! Even the informant seems dumbfounded at that!
OK... Now that I got that off my chest I can continue! I really did like this one... It was not what I expected but is something entirely new... I can't wait to see what other things from Disney's Snow White they add in as the episodes move on... Maybe we should start a game of "name the Disney plots used" or something like that... It might be fun! Let me know what you think in the comments below! Until then I'll just move on....
Speaking of moving on... Let me give you that rating!
I think I'll end this here so that you have to go check it out to find out more... Once you start watching I think you will end up as hooked as I am!
