I’m going to talk about one of my all-time favorite animes, Princess Tutu. Yes, I know – I can feel you cringing at the title. I can hear you thinking: A silly shojo (young girl’s) anime, about a duck transforming back and forth between a clumsy young girl ballet student and a superhero prima ballerina princess in a tutu? A dance instructor who is a cat and keeps threatening disruptive students with marriage to him? Oh, come on….

I hope that by now I’ve earned a little bit of trust. Trust me on this one. You must last through the first diskette. Give it even three episodes, and you will begin to “get it.” Princess Tutu is a story about a tale that has escaped its book, running riot into a world where the fantastical is no longer fantastic. No one has the guts to set the story right, because there’s a job to be done, a thankless job – and until a little duck takes pity on a sad prince and wants to make him smile, the story will remain frozen in time.

Princess Tutu is one of my only two 5 Star animes. Everyone who loves Story should see this anime. Just remember – it’s not American pacing, so it starts out as a silly shojo anime. Patience. It will all be worth it. I promise. Get a trial of Netflix just for this anime.
