In the beginning at least. I always thought that with what happened to the prince, he was a goner, so I'm always surprised when he shows up again without a scratch.

I wonder what happened to the "fairy" before Rapunzel?

Before you complain you should know about the original Grimm-fairy-tales and their dark and morbid style.
Those Tales were never just intended for little children but a collection of German cultural treasure to give a sense of Nationalism. (Not to be confused with National-socialism).
The Brothers Grimm traveled through Germany, in order to gather folk-tales, that were carried down for hundreds of years (mid-evil-times, who, as we know were extremely brutal) before the first edition in 1812.
Those fairy-tales were watered down with time because of the changing perspective of what is suitable for children and the actual awareness of their sensible mind.
I liked the Disney-versions myself but grew up at the same time with the original print. That could be the reason I'm not as sensitive as others.
I'm still happy about the edited versions.
Moreover, as a 7 year old, I would have died inside if I knew; for example, that the prince (beauty and the beast) was transformed because he seduced an orphan. This is not a Grimm's-tale but just an example for washed down Tales from the mid-evils

The haters have apparently not read the original Grimm version. What I like best here is the characterization of Rapunzel -- initially naive, uninhibited, and self-indulgent, then later wiser after experiencing the hardships of an adult woman. There is an "Eve thrown out of the Garden of Eden" quality to her -- discovering forbidden pleasure, being cursed to the burdens of childbirth and work, and developing self-consciousness. Is ignorance bliss? Or can there no gain without pain? Rapunzel reaches one conclusion, but the cynical witch may have a point as well, and therein lies the story's brilliance. Recommended, along with The Frog Prince (another chapter of Sekaiichi Zankoku de Utsukushii Grimu Douwa), for lovers of dark fairytales. The two points off are for the fact that the story is rushed and stylistically formulaic.

Hideous, ugly, disgusting, disturbing, not worth it, don't read it...
Don't read it even if you're just looking for some smut.
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, how far ye have fallen.
If I could I'd give it a -1,000,000,000, but I guess I'll have to settle for a 1. Pity.

Personally I liked it. This wasn't one of those sappy versions of Rapunzel. If you never read a Grimm story before then I could see where it could be confusing. Over all it was good.

It was disgusting and disturbing. I didn't like it one bit. If i could, my rating would go all the way down to a negative number.
