Heine Wittgenstein, a diminutive tutor, has been appointed as the tutor to four Princes (the 2nd through 5th Prince), only they don’t really want a new tutor and it kind of seems like they drove off their previous tutors.
While I knew this was coming, I kind of suspected it wasn’t really for me. Having watched the first episode, I was pleasantly surprised. Early jokes in the episode made me roll my eyes but the Princes’ antics were just over the top enough to make me smile even as each character revealed their particular trope.
What might have saved this from an episode 1 drop from me is the tutor himself. His stoic nature in the face of the Princes’ works quite well and there’s already a clear indication he has a motive to stick this out regardless of the continuous rejection. If that becomes the focus, this could possibly be highly entertaining. We’ll see what episode 2 brings before I decide whether I’m going to stick with this or move on.
The Royal Tutor is available on Crunchyroll.

I was pleasantly surprised by it too. I felt it was slightly similar in nature to GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka in a couple of ways, which is why I want to see how this will turn out.
It wasn’t a brilliant start but I ‘ll give it a couple more eps because it wasn’t too bad and might do something interesting.
Yup, that’s pretty much how I feel too. 😀
yeah, i dunno what i expected from a show like this
I somehow don’t think this one is going to be a priority but it gets points for not making me want to drop it episode 1.
