I certainly find the idea of love at first time quite foolish and unreal.

I always thought that Snow White was stupid in this version of the story where Snow White gets poisoned two time before getting the poisoned apple. I mean, come on! But the artwork was pretty neat and the colour scheme was spot on.

The music is definitely oriental reminiscent, and the use of only black, white, and red make this tale very stark and dark, as it should be.  I like the fact that all seven dwarves play a significant part in the story.  Of course, if Snow White is supposed to be seven years old when she runs away, how came the prince can marry her in the end?  That's the only thing that bothers me.
Hello, I'm the person QueenIchigoHatsune mentioned.

Perhaps it was a typo and she's 17?

Then again she is called a little girl at one point.

I think that they left her as seven and then for ten years she was asleep and continued growing up until she was an adult
hence the reason why they said the queen had long thought snow white dead

:clap: :clap: Bravo, wonderfully done.  It reminds me of a Japanese interpretation of the abridged version of Snow White :iconanaxerik4ever: and I did (It's a little different as we gender-bent the roles for it, changed the poison apple into a poisoned peach, and the seven dwarfs characters were reimagined as seven Onna-Bugeisha (upperclass warrior women)).  I would love to see more fairy tale interpretations from you, maybe a sci-fi Red Riding Hood or else a roaring 20s Beauty and the Beast.

Wow. The black, white, and red art style was an especially nice touch, and the music definitely fits with the theme of the retelling's new setting. Definitely a nice twist in keeping true to the original story while adding something new to it.

Lovely take on the old story.  Was the ending changed a bit though?  I thought the Grimm Brothers had actually had a different ending for the queen, unless I'm mixing up their version with the even older tellings.

No, no, you are correct, the version I've always known had the queen forced to wear red hot iron shoes and dance in them until she fell down dead. Either due to the Japanese setting ( I think they would have worn sandals rather than shoes) or the fact that they may have wanted to have this tale enjoyed by younger audiences as well--the ending was changed. (Although when I was little, I was read an illustrated version complete with the death in iron shoes--and it did not bother me one bit...)

I find it funny how a LOT of things don't seem to bother kids. It's the adults that have the problem.

There were definitely some cartoons and movie scenes that freaked me out as a child--and still are pretty disturbing as an adult.

True. Very true. (like for me it was Courage the cowardly dog) but some other things aren't really that 'disturbing' that are considered 'inappropriate' for children.

Strangely enough that didn't disturb me either--those stepsisters deserved getting their eyes pecked out by the doves in the end.
