Storyline

Ahiru (literally 'Duck' in Japanese), is a petite young girl in a junior high school's beginner ballet program. She's prone to stammering and clutziness. She has a huge crush on her sempai, Mute, a sad-seeming young man who doesn't speak much. Ahiru discovers that Mute is actually the prince out of a story written by the mysterious writer Drosselmeyer. When Drosselmeyer died, the prince and the evil crow he was battling in the story escaped. The prince defeated the crow, but only at the expense of shattering his own heart. Mute is a boy without feeling or understanding. Drosselmeyer, however, has somehow returned, and has offered Ahiru a chance to help Mute. She must become Princess Tutu, a magical ballerina, and help reclaim the pieces of her prince's heart. There is a catch, of course--Mute is being controlled by his roommate Fakia, also a dancer, who seems to want to keep the boy soulless and heartless. Drosselmeyer also told Ahiru that a certain dream she's been having is real. ... Written by SkiSchool2

Just like Romeo and Juliet
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer of this anime on a volume of Kaleido Star,it was kinda pretty. But after buying the first volume,and the other two, I really loved it. My favorite characters in this one are: Duck,and Miss Edel. I know Duck has what it takes to be a dancer,all she's got to do is believe in herself,and work hard to achieve that goal. I also like the opening theme as well. What this series tells us that we all have to face greater challenges that lie ahead of us.All we have to do is do our best,and not mess up.The show also features the great voice talents of Chris Patton,and Luci Christian(famous for Pretear),Jay Hickman,and others. I really think I'm going to like this anime and keep collecting it on DVD. So in closing,if you have seen the preview, then this is the one to get. You will see what I mean
