Shinnosuke Tachibana, Daisuke Namikawa join cast for series premiering in April

The official website for the the television anime adaptation of Higasa Akai's The Royal Tutor (Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine or Königliche Familie Lehrer) manga began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Friday. The video reveals and previews Shōgo Sakamoto's opening theme song "Shoppoi Namida" (Salty Tears).

The show's official site has also revealed two more cast members:

Shinnosuke Tachibana as Maximilian, a palace guard. He has a cheerful demeanor.

Daisuke Namikawa as Ludwig, a palace guard. He has a serious demeanor.

The previously revealed main cast members are:

Keisuke Ueda as Heine Wittgenstein, the royal tutor to four unique princes. Although mistaken for a child, he is actually an adult man.

Yūya Asato as Kai von Grannzreich, the 17-year-old second prince. He is a silent young man who rarely makes public appearances. He is known as the "Glancing Prince" because of his sharp gaze coercing people.

Yūto Adachi as Bruno von Grannzreich, the 16-year-old third prince. He is a prodigy who has had a sharp mind from a very young age and is called a genius.

Daisuke Hirose as Leonhardt von Grannzreich, the 15-year-old fourth prince. He believes he is the most beautiful person on the western continent and calls himself the "White Lily of Grannzreich." He is the "Pride Everest Prince" who hates teachers.

Shouta Aoi as Richt von Grannzreich, the 14-year-old fifth prince. He wears a sweet mask, and his bright personality helps him form close relationships with foreign royalty. He is the "Character Prince" whose light and friendly demeanor make him seem like he's not royalty.

A stage play adaptation with the same five main cast members as the television anime will premiere this year.

The television anime will debut this April, and will air on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, BS Japan, and AT-X.

Katsuya Kikuchi (Idol Memories, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) is directing the anime at the studio Bridge (Nobunagun, Fairy Tail). Kimiko Ueno (Kuromajyo-san ga Tōru!!) is in charge of series composition, and Rena Okuyama (Idol Memories, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) is designing the characters. Keiji Inai (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Outbreak Company) is composing the music at Avex Pictures.

Yen Press began releasing the 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!

Akai launched the manga in Monthly G Fantasy in November 2013, and Square Enix published the seventh compiled book volume in October. The eighth volume will ship on March 27.
