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 really quite refreshing, but the comedy has never been too intrusive or annoying in this show.

This episode finally reveals the truth about Heine. We first hear about it mostly second hand as the Prince’s investigate the criminal in the palace rumour (at Heine’s request) and it is really great to see all four of them working together and playing to their strengths. Given the show has taken the time to develop each of these characters, watching them interact without Heine’s guidance and seeing how far they’d come over the course of the series was genuinely heartwarming.

The second half of the episode we hear the story from the mouth of the King all leading up to the climax which the audience has just been waiting for. It isn’t as though we didn’t know what would happen when Heine’s past was revealed as the show has certainly outright stated it more than once.

Overall, this was a delightful episode of a show that has been surprisingly charming and engaging. It isn’t going to make my must watch list any time soon, but I think it will find a place among shows I rewatch when after something a little lighter.  Though, it still has to finish well.

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 after running away” (or similar) doesn’t really add much to the storyline or character development.

Admittedly, in terms of visual humour, Heine on a horse works well enough.

I’m not really sold on this series at all but it isn’t really doing anything to make me want to drop it either. It’s kind of just there and doing enough to not be dull but not really appealing either.
