Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
I was so not waiting for this one. The more I read about it the more I didn’t care. I thought it was going to be a cheap rip-off story with cheap artwork to match. This turned out to be quite the entertaining surprise.
The artwork is good. Usually things turn out great when Bones and FUNimation are involved. The level of detail is pretty good and I suspect that it’ll get even better once we get to explore their world a bit more as time passes.
Yes, the story does have one or two things that are similar to Disney’s story, but I can overlook that. This seems actually pretty interesting.
I can definitely recommend this to fantasy and romance fans. This might be one of those nice surprises that you encounter every now and then.
