The Hansel & Gretel wiki last edited by Roekon on 02/16/14 04:41AM View full history

Fed up with their parents’ rules, two runaway teens hitchhike their way out of their rural town. After being picked up by a beautiful yet mysterious driver their ride takes an unexpected turn out of town and into the world of Grimm Fairy Tales… Hansel and Gretel soon find that the problems they left behind at home are nothing compared to the horror that awaits them on their ill-advised journey.

A teenage girl and her younger brother grow to be fed up with the authoritarian rule of their parents and decide to run away. In so doing they are picked up by the series protagonist Sela, who tells them the story of Hansel and Gretel. Though there are some similarities to the original story including the trail of bed crumbs and the discovery of the house in the forest inhabited by an evil witch, they meet a much more violent end than in the classic fairy tale. After hearing the story the two runaway teenagers decide it is better to head back home.
