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.

The Royal Tutor: A show that most expected to be shounen-ai or a rip-off of Ouran Highschool Host Club, but actually wasn't.


Story: 8/10
Heine Wittgenstein is the new royal tutor for four of the princes of Grannzreich. The princes have pushed away their previous tutors, but Heine strives to make a bond with them to show them that a teacher should be someone they can trust and depend on. Overall, the whole idea and execution of this was pretty heartwarming, and if you like that kind of stuff you'll likely find this series enjoyable. Underneath this, there is a mystery plot and some really read more

So, the series is finished now and I am still quite said about that. I genuinely enjoyed the series and I think it's one of the better anime this year. It's not boring at all, it managed to entertain me in every episode.

The story isn't very complicated. It sticks with the same idea until the end. No unnecessary side-stories, so If you like the idea itself, you definitely should don't have to worry about wasted potential.

Characters have very diffrent personalities, althrough they may seem a bit exaggerated, but I didn't found any of them annoying or tiring and felt their emotions.

The graphics itself is very read more

As you can tell i gave this a pretty high score from personal standpoint.i loved it and even though u might say that i overrated it and it was mediocre i still don't care cause personally, i loved it.

the story is simple, sweet, comedic and awesome.
THE ART IS LEGIT INCREDIBLE AND THE GUYS R SO DAMN HOT. ( especially that butler that stays with the king like damnnnn)
The voice actors fit the characters well and was perfect. The music was really good as well.

I LOVED the characters even the villains. All their personalities r complex like they do have some cliche factors but they're read more

This was a good anime I feel, it follows a tutor that is to teach four princes in what they need to know to become a king, but can he have them grow and improve themselves?

That is the question this anime asks, and I enjoyed it, we spend a few episodes learning about each prince, finding out who they are, and what their motivations are, each of them has their own problems and I enjoyed the discovery of this.

The story over all was good, a few cracks, but I felt every moment of it, right feelings at the right time, it had good pacing with read more
