The Royal Tutor Series Review: I’m Certain This Was Listed as a Comedy

Overview: Heine Wittgenstein has been called to tutor four of the royal princes with the task of training them to be future kings (the implications of potentially five candidates clamouring for the throne are hinted at but never dealt with). On arrival, Heine has his hands full winning over the four princes who aren't exactly … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Series Review: I’m Certain This Was Listed as a Comedy

The Royal Tutor Episode 12

Review: I'm pretty happy with how this has resolved and feel a nice sense of completion here. Certainly there's more story to be told but I'm really pretty happy here and now and don't have much desire to watch on should there ever be a sequel. That's mostly because the issue of the Royal Tutor … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 12

The Royal Tutor Episode 11

Review: For a show I only grudgingly tried and at first kind of tolerated as the humour was either hit or miss, I've actually grown to really enjoy this particular anime mid-week. The second half of the show has definitely focused more on the drama than the comedy aspects and for me that is actually … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 11

The Royal Tutor Episode 10

Review: Not a lot happens this episode because we initially get the conversation that reveals Rosenberg probably knows who Heine is (or was) and just kind of leaves things hanging and then we watch the Princes fool around as they try to first figure out Heine's secret and then get super sappy and try to … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 10

The Royal Tutor Episode 9

Review: It must have been the week for tepid episodes. Outside of my must watch shows, most of the others delivered watchable but fairly ordinary content and The Royal Tutor, which has been pleasantly entertaining thus far, wasn't an exception. Arguably, the moves by those against the Princes got more overt with a smear campaign … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 9

The Royal Tutor Episode 8

Review: Prince Kai finally gets another episode focus as he asks Heine for advice about how to improve on his communication and not on how to properly wear a jacket. What is it with anime prince's not being able to wear jackets? I wondered with this set-up how they were going to keep this episode … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 8

The Royal Tutor Episode 6

Review: This episode did two things really well and kind of improved my overall view of the show. Firstly, we turned our attention to one of the other Princes, specifically Licht, for the first time since the introductions during the first two episodes. While Licht has certainly made his presence felt, this was really the … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 6

The Royal Tutor Episode 5

Review: This episode we meet the King and learn that his official tone is very different from his private one as he shifts between his roles of father and King. It's an interesting dynamic though I'm thinking it is also a joke that would wear thin quickly if it was the centre piece of the … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 5

The Royal Tutor Episode 3

Review: While this episode certainly works well enough and has a few moments of genuine pleasure, we'd already see Heine face off with Leonhard and convince him to take the test. Having the Prince run off after getting the result before having a touchy pep talk including the line "Has you heart ever felt lighter … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 3
