TV anime based on royal family comedy manga by Higasa Akai hits Japanese airwaves on April 04, 2017
Information about a new cast addition and the Japanese broadcast schedule is now available 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.
Voice actor Toshiyuki Morikawa will play Victor Von Grannzreich, the king of Grannzreich and the father of the princes whose education is the central problem of the series.
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 in Japan according to the following schedule:
- TV Tokyo: every Tuesday during the 26:05 time slot beginning on April 04, 2017.
- TV Osaka: every Tuesday during the 26:05 time slot beginning on April 04, 2017.
- BS Japan: every Saturday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on April 04, 2017.
- AT-X: every Wednesday during the 22:30 time slot beginning on April 05, 2017, with repeat broadcast on Fridays at 14:30, Sundays at 8:30, and Tuesdays at 6:30.
Please note that some Japanese broadcast schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 26:05 time slot on Wednesday night is actually at 2:05 AM JST on Thursday morning.
