    FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the broadcast, home entertainment, merchandising, and streaming rights to the complete 13 episode anime series, PRETEAR (????????????, Shin Shirayuki-hime Densetsu Puriitia, 2001). The series was created by Chief Director, Junichi Sato, best known for his work on KALIEDO STAR, SAILOR MOON and PRINCESS TUTU. PRETEAR was directed by Kiyoko Sayama, who had previously worked on VAMPIRE KNIGHT. A sixteen year old girl named Himeno Awayuki is struggling to adjust to a new step-family when seven guys appear on the scene. Calling themselves the Leafe Knights, the men reveal that Himeno is a Pretear, a girl who possesses a special magical power. Shying away from the strange group, she later joins them when a monster places her friend’s life in jeopardy. Without training, Himeno must prove herself capable to take up the sacred duty of the Pretear. She and the Leafe Knights must resolve their differences and work together to defeat the evil Princess of Disaster who is intent on destruction. Additional information may be found at
