Overview

Himeno is a high school freshman who’s having trouble adjusting to the lifestyle into which she has been reluctantly thrown. Her father Kaoru, a once famous author of young girls’ novels, has been plucked from a rundown apartment and pulled into the grasp of Natsue, a woman not only in control of a vast amount of wealth, but also in control of Himeno. Himeno’s dad takes the side of Natsue rather than his own daughter, and Natsue’s two daughters - from a previous marriage - aren’t very fond of their new stepsister. One day, Himeno takes a shortcut to school and meets a young boy. When she takes the boy’s hand, she’s transported to a fantasy world that lies on the brink of extinction. To stop the destruction of the Leafe - the life force of all beings - from being completely drained by the Princess of Disaster, this world needs the help of the girl called "Pretear." Can Himeno harness the ability inside her and become the sought-after Pretear? Nothing is as it seems in this updated reproduction of the classic tale of Snow White.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Pr tear has elements not just of "Snow White" but of "Cinderella," too. Himeno's alcoholic novelist father marries a rich businesswoman with two snobby daughters. They treat the protagonist terribly, of course, but she is, like the heroines of all fairy tales, good-hearted, virtuous, and patient. Himeno's seven dwarves are seven knights who use leafe, a substance emitted by everything in the natural world. The Princess of Disaster wants to destroy all the leafe so the world will die. The knights need Himeno to become the Pretear so they can combine with her and combat the princess. This is pure fluff, but it's entertaining. The guys are all cute, and Himeno is a sympathetic character. She's also far less passive than most fairy-tale heroines-she's a martial artist, for one thing. The artwork is typical of girls' manga, with flowers and various effects, but it's well done and appealing.-Susan Salpini, TASIS-The American School in England Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Quite Different

    I checked out this anime by chance (it was Recommended by the internet video rental service I use). I rented it and loved it, then decided to purchase the manga. The manga has quite a few differences from the anime. It's a great series, and it's also short and sweet. Only four books. I love the art. The characters are wonderful. The story is good. Highly recommended.

    Enjoyable

    Pretear is an enjoyable manga & anime series. I'm excited to that ADV is getting into the market of manga. Pretear comes off as your typical magical girl story but it's so much more & is definitely worth reading. The anime series is short but sweet.

    Pretear rocks

    I've seen the anime and it rocks. It's really awesome. The story is really good and the characters are cool too. The ending is really awesome! I cried. Except that it was a good ending. ^__^ I won't say any more because you should see/read it for yourselves, but it's very good.
