Covers all of Pretear by Junichi Sato and Kaori Naruse (four volumes)
Remember back in 2001 when the Pretear anime was the cool new shojo? Did you know there was a manga that’s actually pretty vastly different than that anime you remember so fondly? May Fisher-Guest (host of the Digimon podcast Lost in Translationmon) and ever-present host Ashley get into the differences between the anime and the manga, dissect the series’ connections to the fairytales Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella, talk about the cyclic nature of suffering, and fawn over how hot Hayate and the other boys are (the art is amaze!). In addition to an epic shipping corner, May and Ashley also answer the ultimate question: Which one of the seven dwarfs are you?
- Unfortunately the Pretear manga is out of print. (It was originally published by ADV Manga.) However, you can get the volumes used from resellers.
- The Pretear anime is streaming on Crunchyroll
- [QUIZ] Which One of the Seven Dwarfs Are You?
- Clannad, the anime that made everyone cry
- Millennium Snow, the manga from the creator of Ouran High School Host Club that you should read. (Also here’s our podcast episode about it!)
- XOXO, Gossip Girl
- Outro song: “White Destiny” by Yoko Ishida. Buy it off the Pretear soundtrack here.
