Royal Tutor Anime's Ending Sequence Filmed in Live-Action by Cast

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

The cast members of The Royal Tutor anime are busy. In addition to recording scenes for the television series, which premiered on April 4, they are preparing to reprise their roles in the stage musical. Avex Pictures began streaming a live-action promotional video on Wednesday, in which the five main cast members appear as their characters.

Although the cast already appeared in costume in visuals, the video marks the first time that the cast are appearing moving as their characters. The video recreates part of the ending animation of the anime's seventh episode. The cast's ending theme song "Prince Night ~Doko ni Ita no Sa!? MY PRINCESS~" also features in the video.

The anime's seventh episode will premiere on TV Tokyo on Tuesday at 2:05 a.m. (effectively, May 17). Crunchyroll is streaming the series with English subtitles, and Funimation is offering a simuldub.

The cast includes Yūya Asato as Kai von Grannzreich, Yūto Adachi as Bruno von Grannzreich, Keisuke Ueda as Heine Wittgenstein, Daisuke Hirose as Leonhardt von Grannzreich, Shouta Aoi as as Richt von Grannzreich (shown left to right in image above).

The musical will run at Tokyo's Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi from September 7 to September 10, and in Osaka's Morinomiya Piloti Hall from September 16 to September 18. Kōtarō Yoshitani is directing the musical.

Yen Press began releasing Higasa Akai's original manga as e-books in English in 2015, and it describes the story:

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 Grannzreich princes are also offering romance advice in a collaboration with the smartphone game Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100 nin no Ouji-sama (The Dream Kingdom and the 100 Sleeping Princes).
