Princess Tutu Quotes



IMDB : A duck turned girl with magical powers must help save a prince from an unfinished fairy tale.


Once upon a time, there was a man who died. The man’s work was the writing and telling of stories, but he could not defy death. The last story he was working on was about a brave and handsome prince who vanquishes a crafty raven. But now it seems their battle will go on for eternity. “I’m sick and tired of this!” cried the raven. “I’m sick and tired of this!” cried the prince as well. The raven escaped from the pages of the story and the prince pursued the foul creature. In the end, the prince took out his own heart and sealed the raven away by using a forbidden power. Just then, a murmur came from somewhere. “This is great!” said the old man who was supposed to have died.

May those who follow their fate be granted happiness; may those who defy it be granted glory.
Mizuo Shinonome (Princess Tutu)

And so, the prince and the princess lived happily ever… Happily!? Happiness in stories is at most a trifling matter of a couple of lines at the end — the epitome of boredom. Now, show me a magnificent tragedy! A cataclysm of tears from which not one of the players is saved, and to which a happy ending never comes!
