Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, June 06, 2018
I enjoyed the first volume of this series about a little professor who's often mistaken for a child - but who winds up responsible for tutoring four young princes. I've been picking up additional volumes; got this at Barnes and Noble. (The manga inspired a 2017 anime that I definitely want to see. ) This volume follows Volume 5, though the series mixes episodic stories with ongoing plots and could probably be read out of order.

Here, there's some fun up front on the inside-cover panels, with the vain king hoping it's his chance to be on the cover - but he's glad to give place to one of his sons after all. Then Bruno gets jealous over learning that his tutor has taught other students before - but gets a salutary lesson when the tutor trots him off to the remote church in the forest to try and teach the little kids himself. Prince Licht gets caught up in finding the perfect coffee blend to be highlighted at the cafe where he works incognito. Prince Leonhardt fidgets his way through a sitting for his first portrait. And Kai frets over his desire to return to military school as opposed to his father's preference that he stay at home - and he gains some maturity points in the realization that being able to disagree with a beloved person is a sign of trust.

The volume closes with a very tantalizing panel - it seems we're about to meet the eldest prince, whose existence makes it problematic for the others to try too hard to be the heir. Introducing Prince Eins!

Continued in Volume 7.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the series, with some entertaining tidbits.]

I spotted this new-to-me Little Free Library while in the area doing some geocaching, and had to leave a couple of books here. (There's a goat in the pen behind the LFL in the photo!) Hope someone enjoys the book!
