The beautiful sleeping princess that she awakes because the prince's kiss, the princess whose stepmother wanted to kill her and hiding herself she finds some companions, seven eccentrics dwarves.
One more time the story repeats itself, and we still see again the revision of the character of the beautiful and sweet princess planned by the Grimm brothers in 1814, Snow White.
As for many characters of MÄR, also the little Snow has found inspiration in the heroine of a fairy-tale and, just like Dorothy, she has radically changed.
In fact, while with Dorothy we are seeing a little girl, in MÄR represented by a young woman, with Snow we have the opposite effect, a young woman who becomes an only 14 years old girl.
It is undeniable that our Snow has many points in common with his "counterpart", Snow White.
The beautiful evil Snow White stepmother, here becomes Diana. Furthermore the prophecy, told Snow that she would have recruited seven companions, and that these seven companions would have joined her for the MÄR Heaven salvation, and the same happened for Lestava princess, as for Snow White, who meets the seven dwarves.
Obviously we are not seeing at the appearance of seven old and bearded dwarves, but seven young and good-looking (more or less) charismatic characters, which have done the MÄR fortune.
Here also another difference... Snow White was victim of the apple's poisoned of the stepmother, and she felt asleep in a crystal's bier created by the dwarves, while Snow decides to confine herself in the ice to protect herself from the stepmother and allow the faithful servant Ed to look for help, who immediately finds in the seven who, in the future, will be her companions, except Nanashi, who was still unknown to everybody.
As every fairy-tale (Snow White princess included), obviously could not be not the kiss of the waking up (even if involuntary), by the prince, represented by the strong and funny Ginta, whose Snow falls in love immediately (obviously returned).
The changing of the personality is less marked in Snow (Dorothy grazes the madness XD), who keeps the kindness and the goodness of her "counterpart" Snow White, and she is as sweet as the sugar, even if unlike the princess who is completely defenceless and lives happy with the dwarves, trying to be far from the stepmother who tried to kill her; Snow does not run away the problems and tries to fight Diana, arriving to think even to kill her, in order to save MÄR Heaven from the end.
Snow is furthermore happy and solar, never surrenders even if she is only 14 years old she had the maturity of an adult.
The Grimm brothers' story ends with a good end, the princess and his prince go together, on prince's horse, looking forward an happy life together... will it be the same for our Snow, or will we see another change of strategy, and Snow White will remain in the world that the prince saved to get back on the Earth? If there will be a second series we will know it, if not unfortunately, between the other things, ours Snow has not inherited the Snow White's luck in love.
