Drosselmeyer's a fucking cunt though, and he got away to go and ruin some other peoples lives.

Princess Tutu really is the best
It was my first magical girl show and I haven't found one as enjoyable since. This is considered magical girl, right?

Good character development is hard to come by, but Fakir (and the show in general) had it in spades.

thanks user, I love seeing stuff like this

I'd rank Flip Flappers up there. I felt it had a lot in common with Princess Tutu.

This is specifically why this show gets the goddamn guitar ninjas image.

Isaac Foster

What can I say, I like my magical girl anime to be heavily influenced by Grimm fairy tales, focused on a small cast, to contain references to a bunch of art and to be interested in the power of stories. Flip flap flop trip fits my taste like than nothing else but Tutu.

Eli Hill
Eli Hill

That user - I actually really, really liked Flip Flappers, but it's definitely not relevant here.

Mason Bell
Mason Bell

I guess you also like your magical girl anime to have a ton of QUALITY shit, to have a completely dreadful and rushed plot and to become a slog to watch once these two things collide in the last third of the show.

It's okay. It wouldn't be called good taste if everyone had it.

Bentley Ramirez
Bentley Ramirez

The second last image of the Flip Flappers Ed is a pretty clear reference to Tutu so I feel they were fairly cognisant of the similar ground they were treading.
It's got a swan, pulling back the curtains imagery and even has the robot mascot morph into a duck.

Kayden Wilson
Kayden Wilson

Even if we agree the imagery at the end of the ED is in reference to Tutu, which is arguable at best, having one reference is still miles away from making a show similar to whatever it's referencing.

Owen Barnes

QUALITY shit
Waah it doesn't look pretty!
Irrelevant if you have a mental age over than three.
completely dreadful and rushed plot
Descriptive and illustrative criticism there. Enables me to understand your perspective even if I don't agree with it, hallmark of good writing. And the use of the word "completely" in your argument was a lovely touch.

Eli Sanders
Eli Sanders

Yeah, that's not an argument, buds.

Look, if you have enough shit taste to think Flip Flappers is good then all the power to you, but saying it's on the same level as Princess Tutu is just insulting the latter.

Adrian Martin

TAROOO

Cameron Watson

I'm sorry you feel that way user.

Flip Flap referenced so many things I find it hard to believe it wasn't an intentional nod. The director himself animated the ED so I feel it's pretty connected to his vision for the show.

I kind of already explained why I think the shows are similar.

Samuel Rodriguez

Everything you mentioned are superficial similarities. Regardless of whether we agree on at which point something becomes "similar", I can get behind the fact that you instantly like anything that contains all those characteristics since that's something that happens to everyone (hell, I instantly like anything that has a protagonist with round glasses), but I will have to agree with the other anons that the part where you rank Flip Flappers just as high as Tutu is where you lost me.

How much you like something =/= how good it is

Liam Johnson
Liam Johnson

saying it's on the same level as Princess Tutu
Something I never did. If you ask me, Princess Tutu is 9 or 10/10 and Flip Flappers is 7/10 maybe, one of the better shows in the season but nothing special in the long run. No, I just pointed out that your criticisms were childish and stupid.

Justin Bailey
Justin Bailey

You can like it just fine, but Princess Tutu far transcends the small list of reasons why you compare them. It's all in the execution and Princess Tutu delivers it beautifully and evocatively. It isn't just a collection of references. It's a story. I emphasize this because very few shows are stories. And it's not just based on stories or collections thereof. It's a story to itself. The characters aren't just nods to anything, but they're made to stand on their own as well, and they express themselves so earnestly that it's very easy to get attached to them. It centered itself around the ballet motif well. It wasn't just a memetic multiple indirection of references this and references that about ballet anime. It was about the ballet itself, and the expressive story the performing art tends to tell through mere, precise and graceful gesticulations, contrasted by a generally clumsy beginner level main character who stumbles through it, yet persists in trying to maintain her footing and stability as much as she still can.

It's a lot more powerful than what you're even saying of FF.

Alright I watched the first 13 episodes of Tutu.

I'm only going to watch the rest if Fakir is goddamn awesome in them.

Should I continue?

Yes, he is pretty awesome. You will not regret it.

Ain't that a childish and stupid attitude.

"goddamn awesome" is an understatement of how Fakir gets later on. Go for it.

Tutu and Fakir make me think of Lantis and Hikaru from Rayearth, kind of.

Brayden Wright
Brayden Wright

I found the fairy-tale focus and story meta narrative fairly central to both stories. I don't see those things as superficial.

The opera score and references in Tutu were essential to it as the illusion imagery and media references were to flip flappers.

Both shows mainly focus on developing three main characters while they go on a quest collecting pieces of another character. In both shows a crisis of identity conflicts all the main characters.

Quality will always be in the eyes of the beholder, but to deny the shows are similar seems silly to me.

No, seriously. Madofags shitpost Yuki Yuna to death but Madoka owes a pretty big debt to this anime. Homucifer's dress pretty much confirms this.

a show about ballet
opera scores and references
You don't know what you're talking about. Opera and ballet are definitely not the same things. You should know the difference between a work from the baroque period and a 15th century performance form that tends to be associated with the late romantic period music.

Lucas Rivera
Lucas Rivera

I'm not well versed in music of any age I'm afraid.
One of the reasons I liked Tutu was that it took something I thought I wouldn't care about and made it special. It didn't really grow my interest in ballet outside of the show though as my lack of knowledge immediately gives away. I just know that using authentic music was central to the show and greatly improved the experience.
