Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest. Source:

First impression I had, was that Earl and Fairy is a “pretty boy” anime. And it turns out that I am right. Lol! With a tug and hug love relationship going on between Lydia, the fairy doctor, and Edger, the Earl wannabe. There’s some eye fetish going on around as the anime kept focusing on character eyes, zooming in for a close-up every now and then.

I’m sorry to say that I dropped the anime after 2 episodes. I was desperately trying hard to finish at least 6 episodes. And if you noticed that this review doesn’t have any pictures, it’s because I was so irritated by it that I accidentally deleted it before remembering that I haven’t take any snapshots.

For a short moment in episode 2, there was a glamour of hope as an interesting battle scene came up. Unfortunately, it lasted for like 10 seconds, before plummeting back down into boredom city. There’s way way too much talk.

All and all, it was strictly a romance oriented anime which I’m sorry to say will only entertain a handful. 1-Star for the nice animation, nothing more.
