We reach the end of Heine’s first day with the princes and wait to see whether the four of them will turn up to the group lesson in order for him to begin teaching them (spoilers they do).
To be honest, not a lot happened in this episode and I get the feeling this will be the case with the majority of the series. For an overall series it’s likely to have a lot of progression but it does seem to be the kind of show where you don’t see much on an episode by episode basis. For those of you that dislike slow moving weekly shows I would already recommend this to be one that you watch in one go at the end of the season.
As for the contents of this episode, we were once again primarily focused with Prince Leonhard. We were teased with Heine’s mysterious origins again, along with the fact he can jump out of a third story building unharmed. I found it difficult to figure out how much actually happened and how much was an exaggeration, but I don’t think anything was exaggerated. I think he did jump out of a third story building. The series appears to use chibi style animation to exaggerate feelings and moments, but for the actual events it would appear as though everything still occurs rather than it being the main character’s embellished point of view scene.
The character development for Leonhard looks as though it’s going to be the first focused upon, but now that the first day is out of the way and the introductions are all made there’s hope that this series will be more equal with the time spent on the four brothers. Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing more about Kai and Licht, neither of which are as simple as they first appear. Bruno and Leonhard, on the other hand, don’t seem to have much beyond what we’ve already been shown.
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 a worthy candidate for the throne, but he’s greeted with four princes of completely different, unique personalities… all brothers, no less! How will Heine handle these four brothers who were too much for all the previous Royal Tutors, prompting them all to run away from the job?
Heine has finished interviewing all four princes and is ready to begin his first lesson, but will his young charges all assemble for it? And how did they do on their tests?!
