Ok so we have been given this little treat of an anime for this season and I must say I'm certainly surprised at how much I am enjoying it to the point it's now my favourite of this seasons . It's humorous and enjoyable .. We have Heine who is half the size of an average man ( child looking and cute) he is the Royal tutor to the 4 very gorgeous princes , kai ( first expressions cold , later we see he actually really sweet and mischaracterized) , Bruno ( smart pants ) , Leonhard (tsundere) & licht (an absolute flirt ) who's personalities all differ.. they have personal reasons of why they each disliked their previous teachers but heine has made it clear he will build a trust and teach them what the others couldn't ... Questions that you ask yourself who is Heine ? What's his past and who the hell is the older brother So for the sound and animation I think it's done brilliantly, gorgeous and Sharp and pretty detailes with the hair and eyes ( which in my opinion is what usually draws me in more ) .. catchy OP and ED ... But seriously dudes this is just my personal opinion I defiantly suggest giving this a go
Cheesy, and cliche, nevertheless I found myself enjoying this short comedic series, The Royal Tutor. The real question is why? Honestly it shouldn't take long to review, as this show presents simple goals and fulfills them in a satisfactory manner. Story 7/10: The story is nothing new, a tutor (Heine) comes to teach 4 princes with a bad reputation for scaring off tutors, they don't like him at first, then they come to respect and like him. There's a few episodes for each prince to get their charater fleshed out, etc. etc. the last arc is the MC getting his past fleshed out, the end. The point of this story is 65% comedy with 35% of people improving as people, better suited to be 'king'. Could be titled the 'misadventures of the royal tutor as he teaches princes 1-4 life lessons'. Despite the simplicity of it all, I thought it accomplished and tied up what the show set out to be from the start. The princes all become better people by the end of their arc, the MC does not show any progress really. They are set as the 'perfect mentor', an 'op charater' so to speak. They are also the driving force for the princes to make a change in their way of thinking. Another aspect I enjoyed was a slight mixing of the 4 princes in many scenes. I wasn't great meshing, but in shows like these one can expect the charater arcs to leave out the other princes for another day so just one can be focused on. Leaving out complexity of any relationships when they are in a group. This did happen, but not to the extent I was expecting, near the start, in between and at the end the princes did have a quite a few scenes of interaction with eachother. For what the show was trying to go for, they did an ok job. There was changing in settings along the way, and overall the main goals were accomplished with the end of the series wrapping up perfectly with the MC's past revealed. Some schemeing and drama dashed in here and there. So, while I found the plot slightly boring, I also found it satisfying enough for the purpose of the story itself. Animation 9/10: I noticed some drawings of characters was slightly odd and sloppy at times, when other times it was eye candy. In general, the backgrounds and scenery definately had an air of 'royalty' and was well done and a bit complex at times. Sound 8.5/10: A few instrumental pieces that fit well with the theme of 'royalty', opening and ending themes were ok. Charaters 7.5/10: Here's where I enjoyed the show. Ultimately I like the internal monologues of the MC the most. They were expressionless, blunt, and truthful at all times, as well as sarcastic towards the princes many times. The type of apathetic dead beat humor that I really enjoy, while also being perfect at academics and martial arts... Seeing Heine take everything dead serious and transform into a silly little chibi was entertaining. If, say, a girl/boy that had no idea what they was doing was switched for the MC, I would have found the show far too trite, so having it be Heine's charater type is important. The other charaters consisted of a King, who was very king-y, the prince that was incredicbly stupid but good at sports, the prince who looked scary (had weird hair my least fav.) but is actually super kind, playboy prince, and booksmart prince. Because of additional personality traits and time dedicated to them, while each of their 'stories' in the show was completely predictable, I didn't find them overly 2D or boring. Coupled with a bit of comedy and lenghty explainations from Heine, it was pretty enjoyable to watch. Overall 7.5/10: Can't say it was boring enough or poor for a 7(close though), but not really original enough in anyway for an 8. This show wanted to have a tutor teaching some princes life lessons in a comedic way, and it accomplished it in a way not completely dull. Albeit I enjoyed watching it but I couldn't always be in the right mood to do so. There was just enough seriousness that I was kept watching, though any plot that unfolded was rather cheesy. Still, the animation was nice, and I ended up enjoying it more than I expected. I would recommend to those who want a bit of princely eyecandy, a stone faced MC with interal dialogue and a bit of comedy, and a bit of the setting of being in a royal palace.
I did not expect this show to be as good as it was. Thank goodness for my friends pushing me to watch it! Story: At first glance, I really expected this anime to be Quintesential Quintuplets, but for females. Just a harmless and fun story that makes you choose a favorite sibling and roll with the entire season like that. Happy to report that I was completely wrong, and that it is a wonderful show with a hint of mystery and a lot of laughs. The story is all about a tutor coming in to teach four princes in line for the throne. Each of them has various reasons for NOT wanting a tutor but in time learn to accept their new teacher. Throw in a splash of mystery for the end, and you have a show that doesn't feel predictable, at least in my honest opinion. Animation: The show never looks bad, but there is a strong emphasis on making the close-ups of the characters the best they can ever be. The shading, angles, and poses definitely show where a great deal of time and energy went to in the production. Again, I am not complaining in the slightest. The show definitely caters to male fan-service (in the most respectable ways) so take the knowledge however you'd like. Sound: As standard for anime I review here on the site, the OP and ED are not skippable for me. The rest of the anime has decent sound but as always the themes are the best parts of the sound department. The sound affects for some of the gags did make me laugh a fair bit too, of course! Characters: At the beginning it may definitely feel like each of the princes have one personality trait that they will thrive on for the entire show, but give it time. The show goes into detail for each brother, fleshing them out and really building them into deep and relateable characters. I personally would be a little bit shocked on how much I enjoyed each prince's personal episdoes and it took me a while to pick a favorite. Even now, the other three are in a constant battle for the 2nd place spot. A single rewatch of the show could flip that list on its head. Sincerely, the characters make an already good show into a great one. Overall: I enjoyed this show so much! If you are on the fence because of what it looks like on the tin, I promise, it has so much more to enjoy than just cute boys. Its one of my new hidden gems for sure!
