Okaaay, I want to chat with any fans of this show here because it absolutely PWNS.
For those of you who don't know what it's about, the story takes place a veeery long time ago in Germany and it focuses on a little duck, Ahiru (er Japanese for "duck") who gets a magical pendant to transform her into a clumsy but very cute 14-year-old girl. Ahiru-chan is charmed by the prince, Mytho in her ballet school but discovers that his heart was broken into shards when he tried to seal away a demonic crow beast. She decides to transform into the beautiful prima donna Princess Tutu and return the shards to the prince to "get back his smile". To say anymore would be spoilers. x_x
The anime is directed by Junichi Sato (Sailormoon, Kaleido Star, and Pretear's director) with adorable character designs by the story's original creator Ikuko Itou. The animation is beautiful and the music is every piece of classical ballet compositon written. There was very much research and effort put into this show and it's really evident too.
I encourage every single magical girl fan to watch this. You won't regret it. ^_^ It's a masterpiece among its genre-no among anime in general.
.....manga sucks though. ._.
For those of you who DO know this show.....my two cents are
