Saga is a remarkable girl and not just because she loves playing the piano and is amazingly good at it. She can also see season fairies, small creatures who can control the weather. Of course, no one else knows this. In fact, she doesn’t even know it herself until a peculiar little snow fairy drops into her life, looking for a “twinkle” that can unlock her real powers and allow her to become a full fledged season fairy.
This show is kid’s fare through and through, so the worst violence you can expect to see would be a character tripping and getting a scrape on their knee.
Another section where one doesn’t need to worry. You might hear a frustrated character say “shoot,” but that’s about it.
Aside from scenes with the main heroine in the bathtub, there’s nothing to say here. Although, as to be expected, you only really see her shoulders and up. Maybe a knee or two (scandalous!). A lot better than most beach experiences.
As the title suggests, there are fairies in this show and they control the weather. If that bothers you, defiantly skip this show as there’s just no way around it. Also, as is common with anime, the main character sometimes talks to her dead mother, almost as if keeping a vocal diary. There’s no religious implications there, though.
This show is painfully G rated. Every squeaky clean cliché you can think of is in it, poor talented girl with big dreams, rich snob girl who is her rival, little fairies that make her life complicated, but fun, etc. It’s nearly as bad Hamtaro, except this show at least has an ongoing storyline, a goal. Hamtaro was just aimless fun. Cute, but aimless. This show does head towards something. It kinda wraps up and kinda doesn’t, as many anime seem fond of doing these days, leaving a few strands undone just because, well, why not? There was one twist I didn’t see coming, but, overall, this is Disney level (or worse) on the predictability scale. Unique isn’t on the menu here.
The art and music are just as childish as the show, by the way. Actually the art is a bit painful in places, with an over simplified line count and flat faces that sometimes seem oddly shaped, as if the dimensions were more whacked than usual.
If you want a clean show you can watch for a sugar rush, this show fits the bill well enough. Don’t expect anything else though. Just like a spoonful of sugar, this show may be sweet, but there’s really nothing else there.
(It should also be noted that the only version for streaming currently is the dub, which is quite badly done. Ye be warned.)
