Roughly my reaction
Last Seen: Episode 2
Summary: The "Royal Tutor" is a special tutor carefully selected for the task of teaching the prince, and a title given only to the best teacher in the nation. Heine Wittgenstein has been called to the kingdom of Grannzreich to take on the role of the Royal Tutor. He's been ordered to raise the princes into worthy candidates for the throne, but he's greeted with four princes of completely different and unique personalities, all brothers, and all appear hostile to him from the start. How will Heine handle these princes who the previous Royal Tutors all fled from?
First Impression: Waste of Time. Episode 2 softened that up a bit.
My Opinion: At the first glance, this looked like Man-Service anime. What do they call it...Bi-Shounen I think? Basically a reverse harem. By episode two, I'm willing to roll back on that a pace. For starters, the main character is also a guy, not a girl, and he seems to pointedly be here for his own private interests, or so he says. The first episode made this show seem ridiculously shallow, and I'm not going to relent on that point. It is shallow, just not as shallow as I thought. Each of the characters are going to be defined by their generic archetype. The one thing I'm willing to 'spoil' from the second episode is that the main character, Heine Wittgenstein, is the Deus ex Machina of this show. That's basically all you need to know about the show, I believe. It's going to be about him interacting with four archetypes, and magically having the resources to always know the answer, while vague and effervescent 'plot' skulks around in the shadows. For the time being, I think it's amusing. I'm eager to see episode 3, and apply some more concrete material to my thinking. So far, we've only just seen the main character introduced to the four other mains. (five? six maybe? Does the dog count?).
Watch at least to episode two to get a grasp of the basic idea of the main characters, and if they're annoying you, I don't think there's going to be anything particularly amazing here, just a sort of light drama-comedy maybe. I'll report back with more if anything changes, of course.
