A fairy tail-ish romance with both some little comedy, serious moments of drama, and sudden cuteness that will make you smile would be my introduction of "Niehime to Kemono no Ou".
Animation is alright and coloring is light.
Not only op but also ed songs are top-notch and anime clips of them are well fitting.
The plot for now is kinda developing a bit too fast in my opinion, but that's just how it is as in the original source, the manga, so let's see. Thereby no time to get bored .
The interactions and building bonds between characters are intriguing; sometimes funny and caring, sometimes cold and
judgemental in a understandable way with one to another. Our main characters are likable in a natural way, not just because they have traumatic experiences but because their personality traits and behaviors. For one Sariphi is a pure-hearted, friendly, reckless, and lovely girl. Then the king is a considerate, protective, blunt and witted man, there you have a surprising nice existential secret about him if you are spoiler-ed or if you've watched/ will watch/read.
Voice acting is quite good. Starting from the mcs to the side characters "seiyuu"s are well aged at what they do, so no problem there.
Finally, don't expect a strategic masterpiece or the usual "Beauty and Beast" and watch this if you like fantastic fairy tales and miss the sensations you felt while watching cartoons as a child. To elaborate, I can only suggest you to give it a try to test if you agree or disagree with me, in general. Also, dont forget to leave your prejudices behind, if you have any ;)
