Equally charming and stern, Heine Wittgenstein is a brilliant man who commands respect, despite his short, childlike stature. Thus, the king of Grannzreich has called upon Heine to undertake a daunting task that has driven away many before him—become the new royal tutor to four princes who are in line for the throne.

The four heirs each have very distinct and troublesome personalities: Licht, the flirtatious youngest prince; his immature older brother Leonhard; Bruno the studious third prince; and Kai, the oldest of the four and the most reserved. Hilarity ensues as Heine attempts to connect with each of the princes in order to groom them for the throne. However, Heine's mysterious past and dark undercurrents in the present may threaten the harmony within the kingdom.

Overall I would rate it a 9/10

The art is extremely pleasing to look at and even the soundtrack is nice. I found the characters to be very fun, usually i dislike some of the tropes they used here but they made it fit like no other. No character was I annoyed by. For some reason even the obnoxious ones didnt annoy me because they were portrayed as people with actual personalities not a one dimensional character.

If you enjoy when the main character is extremely smart basically a genius in their fields, I would say to give this anime a try. Maybe not one of ...

Mixed Feelings
Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine borders somewhere between being good and just alright. It's a lighthearted character driven slice of life story, focused on self-improvement so each of the princes can become worthy candidates to the throne. The characters themselves are unfortunately fairly simple, but still have enough depth and charm so that I wouldn't describe them as being one-dimensional. All of the princes have easily memorable personalities and flaws due to this simplicity, so given the show is only 12 episodes long, being simple may be a necessary evil. The dialogue was kind of bland, I'm not sure what is was about it but it felt ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Short review here.
First of all, every man in this anime is a feminine boyo.
The heirs, the guards, even the tutor.
The arguments are so dull and stupid.
Most of these dudes are blushing whenever they are talking to the tutor.
I don't if this anime is about teaching the royal family heirs or is about who is going to kiss the teacher first.
Anybody could simply tag this anime as Yaoi and save us some time.
3 episodes of 23m and the plot still hasn't progress...
This is what you would call a bad rom-com...
Whoever draws the settings is amazing tho!
