13-year-old ballet student Ahiru is clumsy, good-hearted and sweet... and has a big secret. The mysterious Drosselmayer morphed a young duck into a girl to give her a mission: help a Prince to get the parts of his heart back. With that in mind, she morphs into Princess Tutu, whose magical dances ease the pain and purifies the bad feelings.

First off, let me say how much I adore Princess Tutu the anime. It is moving, beautiful, and one of my favorites. Which is what prompted me to buy the first volume of its manga adaptation. Regrettably, the manga falls woefully shot of its anime counterpart. The art is horrendous,Aihru looks like a dumpy five year old, and Mytho looks just as bad. The story was completely slaughtered and made into a childish, cheesy mess (instead of dancing with people, Tutu dances/battles such adversaries as giant fish and teddy bears. Sadly I am not kidding). Key characters from the anime such as Drosselmyer, never read more

Princess Tutu is a very nice manga. It's cute, it's got nice characters, and it's got a good plotline. It's one of those magical-girl romance shoujo type things that alot of people like, including me. It's been awhile since I read it, so sorry if I'm alittle off about things. So, yeah. There are magical girls, princes, ect, ect. Not much more to say, it's just a really short but sweet manga, and I reccomend it.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS MANGA. This is nothing compared to the original anime. They even changed the story. This manga sucks. The anime was awesome. I enjoyed it a lot. But the manga is so horrible that I actually took the trouble of coming here and posting this review to warn the people who are about to read it. I wanted Ahiru to remain human but not like this. I wanted her to end up with Fakir not with Mytho. This manga might be good for Ahiru x Mytho shippers since it has so many Ahiru x Mytho moments without any Fakir x Ahiru read more

*sigh* What to say about this dreadful piece of work. Do not get me wrong I ADORED the anime Princess Tutu I found it fascinating in it's dark and twisted fairy tale. This manga falls way below the expectations I had for it. They took one of my favorite stories and turned it into a pile of poorly thought out fluff. The art is terrible and the characters are poorly developed. Overall if you want to know the story of Princess Tutu, skip the manga and go straight for the anime.
