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.

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.

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 ...
