It's about a girl named Ahiru (Duck, in English) who is a Ballet dancer in a small town blocked off from the world by a giant wall. Ahiru is a terrible dancer at school (which is an art school with dancing, drawing, sculpting, in different wings) and is one of the worst in her class. She is infatuated with a boy named Mute, who is a senior at the school and one of the best dancers. His best friend Fakir (who is mean to Mute in the beginning) and his 'girlfriend' Rue (who is the antagonist near the middle) are the only people he's really friends with, though.

Mute never smiles, and he is never knowing his own opinion. It turns out, Ahiru figures that Mute is a prince from a book called 'The Prince and the Raven'. Mute broke up his own heart when the story never ended (The man who wrote it died in the middle, and so him and the raven were fighting forever and always, until he broke up his heart to seal the raven away.) He appeared in this little town where Fakir took him in when Fakir was a small boy, being his guardian of sorts.

Ahiru, wishing to bring a smile to the prince, ends up meeting the dead man who wrote the prince and the raven. He is caught in a kind of limbo, and can control the fate of the town Ahiru is in (Where animals act as people and impossible fairytale things happen.) He tells her he can bring a smile to Mute's face if she turns into Princess Tutu. This goes further because it turns out Ahiru is not even a girl to begin with. She is actually a duck. The necklace she always wears as a girl is actually the thing that turns her into Princess Tutu AND into a girl.

So, it is up to Ahiru to find Mute's pieces of hearts which reside in souls of people most vulnerable to them (like a person who wants to know things more than others gets the feeling of curiosity, and the people who are devoted to out doing everyone gets his feeling of determination.) When she sees that a piece of heart is around (her necklace glows) or someone is in trouble, she turns into a beautiful girl who can dance like none other. The thing is, if Princess Tutu ever tells The Prince that she loves him, she turns into a spec of light. So, she can never tell him what or who she is.

Fakir ends up helping Ahiru later on to get Mute's heart together (giving him emotion, and the ability to feel joy and love) and Rue ends up turning into the antagonist, wanting Mytho for herself though Mytho doesn't know if he loves Rue or Tutu. (Ahiru never tells Mute that she is Princess Tutu.)

It's a fairy tale more than anything, full of authentic dancing and music, plus funny scenes and drama.
