Image result for royal tutor anime

I recently finished watching an anime called The Royal Tutor also known as Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine 王室教師ハイネ and it turned out to be a really good show. I enjoyed the comedy and drama in the show. The characters are funny and all of them have unique personalities. Heine is my favorite character in the show because of his child-like appearance and his grown man voice. Heine was what had me hooked onto the show. Heine reminds me a lot of Sebastian from Black Butler with his mature attitude and his sense of humor.

Anime and America Cinema (Panel)

 

Hetalia (America)

 

I went to an interesting panel at Anime Next about how Anime or Manga series gets Americanized.  Some series that we all know and love should never be replicated. America seems to fail when attempting to recreate an Anime series or movie adaptation with their own spin on it. Sometimes it is not all bad but they still fall short even with the help of A-list directors and screenwriters.
