A new preview video is now available online for The Royal Tutor (known in Japan as Oushitsu Kyoushi Heine), an upcoming TV anime based on the comedy manga by Higasa Akai that follows a diminutive teacher attempting to educate the eccentric princes of the royal family of the kingdom of Grannzreich.
Two additional cast members have also been announced for The Royal Tutor:
Shinnosuke Tachibana will play Maximillian, a Grannzreich royal guard with a cheerful personality.
Daisuke Namikawa will play Ludwig, a Grannzreich royal guard with an overly-serious personality.
Also, the ending theme for The Royal Tutor, entitled "Shoppoi Namida" ("Salty Tears"), will be performed by Shōgo Sakamoto.
The Royal Tutor manga is serialized in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine, and an English language version is also published by Yen Press, who describe the series as follows:
"Accepting the post of Royal Tutor at the court of the king of Grannzreich, Heine Wittgenstein is a little professor with a big job ahead! Each of the kingdom's four princes has a rather distinct personality. Does their diminutive new instructor have what it takes to lay down some learning? It's a comedy of educational proportions!"
The Royal Tutor TV anime is directed by Katsuya Kikuchi and features animation by Bridge. The series will broadcast on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, BS Japan, and AT-X beginning in April of 2017.
