Travis Bruno writes: "Practically every child has heard a fairy tale of some kind as they were growing up, however only recently have these fairy tales been adapted into other forms of media outside of books and childrens’ cartoons. In fact, there has been a large influx in shows that feature fairy tale characters, including major motion pictures and television series.
However Japan was a little ahead of the game when Masashi Okita’s light novel series, Okami-san and her Seven Companions was adapted into an anime back in mid-2010. Now FUNimation has brought this series to anime fans in North America. Will this series stand out with its various fairy tale references or be crushed beneath the weight of too many references at once?"
