Princess Tutu is a magical girl anime series created by Ikuko Itoh in 2002 for animation studio Hal Film Maker. It was adapted as a 2-volume manga illustrated by Mizuo Shinonome. Both the manga and anime series were licensed by ADV Films. Princess Tutu follows Duck, a duck who was transformed into a young girl and takes ballet at a private school. She becomes enamoured of her mysterious schoolmate Mytho, and transforms into Princess Tutu to restore his shattered heart. Mytho's girlfriend Rue transforms into Princess Kraehe to frustrate Tutu's efforts, and Mytho's protective friend Fakir discourages Mytho's burgeoning emotions. When it becomes apparent that Duck, Rue, Mytho, and Fakir are meant to play out the characters in a story by a long-dead writer named Drosselmeyer, they resist their assigned fates and fight to keep the story from becoming a tragedy.The series explores the concepts of fate and free will. Reviewers point out that although Princess Tutu is nominally a magical girl series, it is more of a "fairy tale set to ballet with a few magical girl elements mixed in," and its use of dance in lieu of violence to solve conflicts carries "surprisingly effective emotional appeal." The background setting of the story is based on the historical town Nördlingen in Bavaria, Germany.Princess Tutu featuring Takahiro Sakurai and Akiko Hiramatsu has one or more episodes streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Hulu, free on Yahoo TV, and 1 other. It's an action & adventure and animation show with 63 episodes over 3 seasons. Princess Tutu is no longer running and has no plans to air new episodes or seasons. It has a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (831 votes).
