I decided to go out of my anime comfort zone and watch something different. I would never have watched a ‘girly’ anime like Princess Tutu in the past, but after hearing how good it was I decided to give it a go.
Don't let the fact that this is a young girls anime or about ballet stop you. Of course, it is an ideal anime for them too.This a dark, complex and multi-layered story. It is perfectly paced, and if you let yourself go along with the story the odder elements will all seem in place. The music is also really well-done. There are loads of extra features which is rare on anime DVDs.
So if you're looking for something different, try Princess Tutu. It's not just for young girls! One of the best anime I've seen, and I've watched over a hundred altogether.
