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.
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
nice backstory elements that are revealed as the show goes on, and, by the end, they come together in a great way. At the same time, the plot isn't anything new or groundbreaking, it's just the execution that made it stand out.
Not too much to say about my rating besides I simply liked how it looked. The shading was pretty unique and the art style itself is very neat, so it was something I looked forward to each episode. Also, a big part of the art style: Chibis. EVERYWHERE. At least once in every episode (If not more, with exception to some serious ones) the art style switches to a chibi one, which you will either find adorable or highly annoying. Personally, although I was annoyed at first, I ended up liking it because it adds to the character's personalities in some scenes. So, be warned, CHIBIS.
Again, not much to say here besides I liked it. The music went well with the setting and story and made the series even more enjoyable. On occasion, there were some sound effects that were overexaggerated, which came off as weird, but not annoying.
Initially, each prince has their own quirk that makes them stand out and easy to remember. Although they may seem one-sided at first, there is a lot more to them that is revealed as the series goes on. Overall, character development was one of the best parts about this because it was clear and understandable. Some backstory is tied into this as well and it's all done in a great way.
I looked forward to new episodes of this anime, but it was kind of slow at first, so it may be a hit-or-miss thing. It's definitely not the best I've seen but it kept my interest with a decent story and nice execution.
- Average story with an interesting plot
- Each episode adds to the personality of characters and character development is portrayed really well
- Pretty art and nice music
- Nothing seemed rushed and everything flowed together smoothly
- Plot reveals can be slow at times
- Seemed like the series was going nowhere for a bit
I definitely recommend watching this series, it's heartwarming and has great with characters with equally great character development. Hope this helped!
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
adorable, however you may be tired of many chibi artwork. But scenery is made really well.
The music is very average, so don't expect excellent soundtrack of this one.
Summarizing, this anime is truly something, what should gain more attention. If you are like me and prefer to watch anime that are enjoyable with not much action into it, you should take a closer look at this anime. It's funny and adorable, so I strongly reccomend it to you.
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 think this is in the top fifteen of my all time favourite anime ( i have hundreds of favs ).
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 damn he fiiinnneee)
The voice actors fit the characters well and was perfect. The music was really good as well.
LOVED the characters even the villains. All their personalities r complex like they do have some cliche factors but they're so different...( it's hard to explain )
i loved every minute of it. The ending was satisfying and it was overall just a great anime. It was a short but memorable anime with a lot of morals and comedy and just a great addition to ur list.
I HIGHLY recommend that everyone watch it when ur bored or maybe searching for a new anime with a perfect blend of everything.
PLEASE watch it.
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
a nice wrap up that could be the end of the series, or setup a second season.
Art was fine, I like the facial expressions and how they really helped to let you feel who everyone is.
The characters is a strong selling point, each prince, the tutor and other chars have their own personalities and motivations. They seem shallow at first, but over the course of the series you grow to understand them more.
I did find this rather enjoyable and over all good series, I would recomend this highly if your looking for something of this kind, no real action, just characters growing up.
