• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Himeno and her Unwanted Harem.


We have to find her soon, the one who will turn the snow white.


Prétear: The New Legend of Snow-White (Shin Shirayuki-hime Densetsu Puriitia), often shortened to just Prétear, is a Shojo story with a premise that can be described as "Magical Girl Warrior Snow White And The Seven Bishonen". Exactly what it sounds like — nothing too original, but nevertheless quite entertaining, if you are into this particular genre. Originally a four-volume Manga created by Jun'ichi Sato (of Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu fame) and Kaori Naruse, it was adapted into a thirteen-episode Anime series, with some noticeable changes in the plot and character designs; both the manga and the anime were licensed by ADV; the anime is now licensed by FUNimation.

The story revolves around sixteen-year-old Himeno Awayuki, who finds herself in a situation quite a bit like in "Cinderella": several years after her mother's death, her father Kaoru married the rich widow Natsue who has two daughters, neither of whom seem to like Himeno. Unable to fit into this new environment, the girl gets more and more depressed, even starting to think that it would be better if she disappeared from the world... that is, until she stumbles upon seven dwarfs Pretty Magical Boys who call themselves the Léafe Knights. They are searching for a girl who can accept their Elemental Powers and become a Magical Girl Warrior named "Prétear". You can guess what happens next...
