Visuals for the main characters were also unveiled. You can check these out below:

Heine Wittgenstein

Royal tutor to four princes with unique personalities. He’s often mistaken for a child, though he’s a full-grown adult.

Kai von Grannzreich

The second prince. This 17-year-old is a silent fellow who rarely appears in public. He’s known as the “Glancing Prince” due to his sharp, coercing gaze.

Bruno von Grannzreich

The third prince. This 16-year-old is a prodigy, who’s had a sharp mind from a young age. Many refer to him as a genius.

Leonhardt von Grannzreich

The fourth prince. This 15-year-old believes he’s the most beautiful person on the continent. He refers to himself as “the White Lily of Grannzreich.” He hates teachers, and is often called the “Pride Everest Prince.”

Richt von Grannzreich

The fifth prince. This 14-year-old hides behind a sweet facade, though that bright personality allows him to form close bonds with foreign royalty. That light and jovial demeanor make Richt seem like a normal person. He’s called the “Character Prince.”

The Royal Tutor began publication in Square Enix’s Monthly G Fantasy magazine in 2013, with the sixth compiled volume hitting Japanese stores earlier this year. Yen Press licensed the manga in 2015, and has been releasing it digitally. The fourth volume was released on October 6.

Yen Press describes the series as:

Accepting the post of Royal Tutor at the court of the king of Grannzreich, Heine Wittgenstein is a little professor with a big job ahead! Each of the kingdom’s four princes has a rather distinct personality. Does their diminutive new instructor have what it takes to lay down some learning? It’s a comedy of educational proportions!
