Castle: What anime are you watching this/last season? I don't understand this 'only moeshit is being made!' hysteria when we have Jormungand, Psycho Pass, Shin Sekai Yori, Btooom, Kingdom, Magi, and probably a couple of other very non-moeshit stuff airing/just finished airing.
Princess Tutu may actually have been made more for the otaku fans of magical girl anime. One indication is that the manga adaptation was serialised in Champion Red, which is a male oriented magazine. The show might be better for it though, since magical girl anime aimed at girls are long monster of week fare transparently advertising crap toys.
I quite seriously doubt that. Certainly there's nothing otaku-centric in the show itself, and the format of the show is pretty standard magical-girl monster of the week anyway. I can't imagine anyone with a brain who is primarily targeting an adult male demographic calling their show 'Princess Tutu' anyway, even in Japan.
The easy way to prove its target audience would be to find out what time it aired (morning, afternoon/evening, or late-night) - but good luck finding that.
Princess Tutu is easily one of my top-10 anime series, mind you - but it works much better as a children's story with depth than it does as an adult-aimed story.
