A hidden jem in plasticwrap
Jan 06, 2009 reviewed by CYBRN4CR
Don't let the plastic stray you away from this series. It's not filled with skin shots, nor does it have seriously graphic scenes.
In fact, it's a very thoughtful series about discrimination in Germany during the period when the Church was a powerful force to be reckoned with, and witch hunts were common against anyone who looked different than the norm.
The main character, Dorothea, is a very noble woman driven to protect her homeland, and throughout the series she maintains her composure despite serious peer pressure for the way she looks. She, like the rest of her people, are all albino. Their different appearance lead many to think they are demons or witches, making them targets for attacks, witch hunts and politics.
The vocabulary and German titles make the series feel more authentic to the times. This combined with the beautiful style, complex characters, and engaging story make this a wonderful series to pick up and not feel embarrassed about.
