(One episode watched):

This appears to be an attempt to use classic Western fairly tales as the basis for stories taking place in a sword and sorcery world. If episode one, which features Little Red Riding Hood, is a good example they will not work out the same way as they always have in the past (I notice from the list of characters at ANN that Snow White, Cinderella, Robin Hood and others will appear at some point). LRRH's tale ends in a surprising way that few would have expected, but in general I was not impressed by episode one of this show. All the mumbo-jumbo about 'story zones', 'books of fate', 'chaos tellers', etc, wasn't explained very concisely and confused me without generating much interest. If I can't even understand exactly what's going on, how am I supposed to be thrilled by it? I got the impression at one point that a character somehow transformed from a girl into a boy, but there was no mention of it afterwards and I must have been mistaken. None of the characters had a personality that leapt out and caught my attention. I felt somewhat bored with episode one and did not bother to download episode two.
