This should amuse the Kakashi fans out there. Or any Naruto fan who's ever lived with an evil, attention-grabbing, violent cat that masquerades by day as a cute, furry animal.

Princess Tutu is beautiful and wonderful and has a WTF factor that knows no end. It's weird and fabulous and meta and everything good. I'm glad you discovered it! I watched it all in subbed, but I've seen the first DVD in English and I think the dub sounds pretty good too. God, I love PT so much. It's in my top 5 favorite anime series, and its one of the most rewatchable.

If you want to read them, my major episode reactions are listed here:

Just scroll down 3/4ths of the way until you see subject headers labelled "Princess Tutu" or "Tutu" with a number. In my response to eps 25&26 I wrote a little post-series drabble spoof.

I babbled about this show quite a bit. It's so enchanting and so multilayered and so symbolic and so satisfying. A lot of tv series, anime or live action, just don't give you the emotional payoff you need at the end, but Tutu does.

If you loved PT, you should watch Fruits Basket next. It is awesome as well.

I JUST finished the series...

... and needless to say, I'll be watching it again. OOOOH, I WILL be watching it again. It's definitely UP THERE, and I have no idea why it isn't as popular as it should be. It's brilliant, so so so brilliant. What I absolutely loved was the way it incorporated a whole gallery of themes, including the art of storytelling - and the nature of fairy tales in particular - and the characters... the characters... I wanted to marry Aotoa at the end, I honestly did - obsessiveness and all. He catches on quickly.

AND THE SHIPPING!!!! AAaah *will not even begin this tangent*

Oh crap... I'm not coming off as very intelligent at the moment, but it's such a good series - so UNIQUE - and the ending, the fairytaleish way Mytho and Rue ended up together, and the muchmoreawesome way Fakir and Ahiru ended up, sorta kinda - and my friends already told me to stop calling them just so I can babble about the greatness of it - but on the bright side, one is very interested in watching it, even if she still won't stop making fun of its title. BUT IT'LL GET HER IN THE END.

I actually found it through your LJ ^__^;; Call it stalkerish, but I have this habit of going through people's tags, for some reason. And then I saw 'Princess Tutu' and vaguely remembered hearing about it, so I opened it, saw the words 'most wonderful meta and literary of anime' somewhere on the page, and I got to thinking: 'a LITERARY anime? How can that be!?'

So I Youtubed it and finished all 26 Acts in just two days ((having started it yesterday)) because "Hurricane" Ernesto is giving us Floridians some free time from school; and now I am in SERIOUS need of FakirxAhiru. This is where I cling to fandom. Their ending was indeed satisfying, but I need to see them together SOMEHOW, or I'll go *virtually* insane... because she is now a duck!! Beautiful as their ending/beginning was, she remains a duck!!

And emotional payoff? Damn right. Sometime in the first half of the series, I found myself actually *caring* for the characters, instead of caring about how interesting/original/significant their roles were. I would've supported MythoxTutu if it would've made her happy. And that's stupid, because she's not even real, but I can't help it because this was one GEM of an anime, and I can't say this often enough: THANK YOU.

If you loved PT, you should watch Fruits Basket next. It is awesome as well.

There is no 'if' about it. I loved it. I've heard plenty about Fruits Basket, though, and it's been recommended many times - but if it's anything like Princess Tutu, then hell yeah, I'm watching it. I'm afraid PT will be setting some pretty high standards, though. :P

((So I'm sorry I have to spam your LJ with this, er... *review* of sorts, but it's past midnight over here and I have no one else to gush to. T__T And I really need to gush because I've just finished watching it, and it makes me want to unleash my inner fangirl, but I can't do it now because I'll wake up my household. But I could try gushing about it on my own LJ... now there's an idea...))

*I might even end up reviewing each episode, separately... this anime leaves a person with a lot to say.*

*and I will enjoy reading your reactions, of course. ^___^ and ransacking your LJ and your friends' LJs for PTfic; I don't think I'll even try writing for my shiny new FakirxAhiru OTP... it is too precious.*
