I think the character development was sloppy, and the disposable secondary cast could have used less screen time, because they were poorly developed and most served no purpose at all. Das blonde Mädchen aus dem Glas heißt Cossette und wartet schon seit mehr als 250 Jahren darauf, dass endlich jemand sie sieht und erlöst. Overall 6 Story 6 Animation 7 Sound 3 Character 6 Enjoyment 4 Story: It's utterly and completely a satire. Overall 5 Story 0 Animation 0 Sound 0 Character 0 Enjoyment 0 There are a lot of ways to frighten people and make them feel vulnerable in a primal way, and therefore there are a lot of ways to execute horror—outright screaming and slashing, psychological mind games, the appearance of the supernatural. This story thread ultimately serves very little purpose, and is more or less just a distraction from the central plot. This is where it gets even more fun!. You bet your sweet ass it is.
To set her free, she tells Eiri, a man must be willing to take upon himself punishment for the sins Marcelo committed. What it adds are visuals, and these enhance the story in a way words alone can never do. Immer, wenn er es berührt, bekommt Eiri seltsame Visionen von einem kleinen hübschen Mädchen. It's making fun of people who look at pretentious pieces of work by creating a character, Eire, who is absolutely infatuated with Cossette who has no depth, value, or substance. Now, seeing that I gave this anime an overall score of 7 you may think I was disappointed, but that would be too easy. There are a lot of cuts, which makes it hard to follow the details of the plot.
Sound: The levels on this are atrocious. When all is said and done, the story might not be all that original, or contain a lot of development. This made it very difficult to watch and the only reason I continued is because I refuse to drop an anime. It is, however, very true to form. You wouldn't think I'd be able to say that about something that lasts all of three episodes, but it does. So much more lies beneath the surface, as we are shown a reflection in a glass that momentarily purports to be reality, but need not necessarily be interpreted as such. Looking for what show an image came from? The music is hunting and playful, almost like a music box.
But soon this goblet starts affecting him, giving him dreams. In a way, I am in love with these three episodes like the protagonist is in love with the painting, and, thus, am unable to see anything that could detract from this impression. He can't explain just why. We follow a young man named Eiri Eerie? Each scene is framed up very artistically, to match the main character's personality. They start out as stock characters and experience very little growth as things progress.
I don't understand why Eire loved her. It turns into a regular slideshow of artistic tricks-of-the-trade. I found every character to be unlikeable and there was no urgency to save Cossette from limbo considering the only reason was Eire loved her. Eiri is obviously an adult over 18, while Cossette appears to be around 12 years old. I commend the screenwriter Mayori Sekijima and director Akiyuki Shimbo for taking a simple premise and turning it into a half way or so brain twister; but I've seen this done far better. The anime is, by now, almost 14 years old and almost nobody talks about it, so it flew completely under my radar up until now.
The artwork is rather pretty, the details striking. I cannot recommend this anime highly enough. Even though personally I'm not bothered by it too much; others may be very disturbed by the Lolita thing going on between Eiri and Cossette. It's two hours of my life I'll never get back. Harsh words all around, and yet, that number does say five, which is far from the worst available score.
Having said all that, his visual trademarks can be used for good. Which I paid close attention to as nothing of merit was happening in the foreground most of the time. He becomes infatuated with the girl, and one night at midnight, somehow makes contact with her. Why don't we put forth as much effort in confronting art, as the artist has put forth in confronting us? He spends some time just holding and looking at a glass. She reveals to him that her spirit has been entrapped within the glass by her murder, which was perpetrated by her betrothed, the artist Marcelo Orlando. All of her soundtracks sound unbelievably similar. With regard to the plot, it would be no exaggeration to state that the same story could have been told within five minutes, nor would it be too much to say that any review of the plot would also most likely divulge what little twist there is.
The sound is probably the best part in my opinion, and I highly reccomend downloading or buying the Soundtrack. Even though not all styles work out equally fine - especially the more surrealistic scenes tend to be a bit over the top - they do usually perfectly portray the mood of a certain scene. The storyline would have been better if it was either longer with more detail in the story, or a movie. This is of course not to say the series was low budget, or anything. But that's about all it has going for it. He learns her name is Cossette, and that she was an aristocrat's daughter during the 18th century.
