- Story Intro
- Princess Mimori lives in
the World of Magic... which actually happens to be the Land of
Frogs. She is a completely cheerful and carefree young girl who
leaves the studying of magic to her older brother Makaeru - she
doesn't like the smell of old books.
- One morning she runs into
a strange young boy named Aoi. He's from the Human World - but
there aren't supposed to be any humans here! No humans have been
here since the battle with the evil Snakes long ago. Mimori isn't
too concerned about details like that, though - he seems like a
nice young boy.
- Aoi tells her about how
he came to be in her world. It seems that he was late to school
one day, and ran into a strange young man. This guy introduced
himself as "Makaeru" and splashed Aoi with some peculiar,
sparkling water which turned Aoi into a frog! Then, Makaeru tossed
him through a portal in a tree trunk, and the next thing he knew,
he was here. He turned back to his normal form after he dried off
- but then he changed into a frog again when he touched some
water, trying to get something to drink!
- Mimori thinks his frog
form is very cute - and she also finds his description of the guy
who cursed him familiar.... it sounds like her older brother!
Especially when Aoi explains that Makaeru mentioned a boy who's a
frog will make a good friend for his sister, Mimori. She goes to
find the Book of Magic that will remove the curse - but the pages
for this enchantment are gone. Not only that, but her brother
seems to have vanished, too!
- After consulting with the
Frog Elder, they embark on an adventure to recover the missing
pages of the Magic Book. This is the only way to remove Aoi's
curse - and it will also recover magic that has been lost for many
years, magic that was used by her father and mother to seal the
evil Snakes away from the World of Magic long ago.
- This series is very
cheerful and vibrant, and has large doses of humor thrown into the
quest that the party undertakes. The animation is fairly simple,
but the characters are very unique personalities. The music is
interesting - it is usually spirited, energetic tunes which
support the normal comedic goings on, but occasionally breaks away
from this standard into a brooding, epic fantasy theme (especially
when the past battle with the evil Snakes, and the creation of the
Seal by the King and Queen, is being disclosed). If you like a
good mixture of comedy, magic, very cute characters, and
coming-of-age angst, this story will surely appeal to you. As the
ending theme song brightly encourages, "Check it out!"
