WE GOTTA CANCEL FAIRYTALES THEY'RE USING THE F SLUR AND THEY AREN'T GAY
I’ve just listened to a tale by Brothers Grimm called “The Three Spinners” and it is one of the best and cleverest tales I have ever heard. It became one of my favorite fairy tales. It is underrated.
I like fairy tales like “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty” as much as everyone else, but these stories propagate the inherent nature of beauty, nobility and goodness. “The Three Spinners” is a tale about how circumstantial all of these things are, and I think we perhaps wouldn’t subconsciously equate beauty and worth or at least would have a more realistic attitude about beauty or work if this was the tale told to all of us as children instead of “Cinderella”.

The True Bride
"Now will I try my last chance," thought the maiden, and when evening came she went to the stone under which she had buried her treasures. She took out the dress with the golden suns, put it on, and adorned herself with the jewels. She let down her hair, which she had concealed under a handkerchief, and it fell down in long curls about her, and thus she went into the town, and in the darkness was observed by no one. When she entered the brightly-lighted hall, every one started back in amazement, but no one knew who she was. The King's son went to meet her, but he did not recognize her. He led her out to dance, and was so enchanted with her beauty, that he thought no more of the other bride. When the feast was over, she vanished in the crowd, and hastened before daybreak to the village, where she once more put on her herd's dress.

Visual for the CLAMP x Netflix collaboration ‘Grimm’ which will be based on the fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm~!
I love things based on fairy tales so I can’t wait to see this!
A new anime project possibly called 'Grim,' (it's still pending) that is horror and suspense, has CLAMP character designs, and is likely a take on the Grimm Fairytales? Please sign me up right now! 😍
Simsala Grimm is such a fun, but underrated show. Maybe it's just childhood-nostalgia talking, but I love how the two supporting characters (actually, they are also main characters, but since their job usually helping others, I calling them supportive characters) don't feel forced into the story that they are originally not a part of. They have a role most of the time and they don't outshine the main characters.
And not only both of them have different personalities that play off each other well, but they also have really memorable, but simple and easily recognizable designs. Design is always important part of a character. Yoyo's hat shows his playful and laze, jokester nature, while the way Doc's glasses are placed on his face, promises us an intellectual person. He also has a bag that tells us how prepared he is for variable situations that they get thrown into.
The artstyle also nice to look at and the intro and the outro are both did a good job reflecting at the series' nature. Since I was a child, the opening gave me a feel a start of a magical adventure what can happen behind our backs. Yoyo and Doc were the link beetween our world and the fairytale land. The book was the key, which I also found a good representation, since reading can be a good journey and they are literally travelling with the book to the places they need to go, but they also can't leave without it. And the ending song is just very catchy. They are playing clips from the pair's adventures in the end credits and while it's not the most creative thing, but it works with not only concluding a story, but promising more, so the viewer comes back.
I also like the songs in the series in general. They are sang by the three birds most of the time who are reeccuring characters, and sometimes they have a role with moving the story forward. Not all of the songs are neccesary, but none of them is painful to listen to and they had a nice rythm into them.
The show can get dark sometimes, but it's still in the dose that doesn't give people heartattack, because the retelling tries to be loyal to the source-material and when it's not, it tries to create something that works within his own world, bringing closer to the kids.
The character-interactions not only good with the two helpers, but they often form genuine bonds with the main characters. They don't have very complecated personality traits, but they are likeable and can have generally relatable growth.
Yoyo and Doc Croc's catchphrases don't get tiring either. They gave a sense of familiarity and they are using it a way, it comes of as a neccesary part of a dialouge.
What am I saying: This series has quality. It's not the best cartoon ever created, but it has a special place in my heart, because they clearly put effort into the whole thing. Yoyo and Doc not just shoehorned in, but they feel like a natural part of the stories and throughout them, the viewer can also feel that way. The messages are come across, the serie is also great just sitting back and relaxing and feeling like a child again. It's just so satisfying to see how the heroes face the challenges and complete their journey despite the odds against them. The show is pretty episodic, and the intro tells us what we need to know about the status quo, so if somebody wants to take a look at it, you can start at any episode, the story-quality is the same most of the time. Of course there are weaker ones and some of them feels less ordinary given the nature of Simsala Grimm, but I wouldn't call any episode bad per say. The original demographic are children, but I think older people can enjoy it too, if they still have something left from their inner-child.
