We meet the three remaining princes in their one-on-one interviews during this episode and we also get a brief encounter with the princess. Each prince has their own quirk and Heine as the tutor continues to deliver some fairly solid commentary in the face of the various personality defects he encounters even as he definitely inflicts some trauma onto the supposedly brilliant prince (yeah, the names are definitely not sticking yet).
While there is nothing particularly wrong with this episode or the show as a whole, I’m not loving this. It just doesn’t click for me and a lot of the comedy is more tolerable than actually funny (at least for me). I’m going to give this to episode 3 because I don’t dislike it, but to be honest I’d be surprised if this stays on my final watch list.

yeah, 2/3 of those interviews went exactly how i expected them to go…meh. also, yet another example of chess in anime gone wrong
I’m just happy the chess game was over quickly. When the prince first got out the board I thought for sure we were going to be stuck for the rest of the episode watching them fight it out.
I’m hoping something interesting happens in episode 3 as well. So far it’s been pretty unsatisfying as a whole.
Really we’ve just had some long introductions to the characters. I’m still kind of interested but unless something resembling a story gets started soon I’m probably leaving this one off my final watch list.
