A new upcoming action-fantasy anime titled Lady Napoleon has been announced. The anime will have 13 episodes and will stream worldwide on Netflix.
Lady Napoleon revolves around Sophie, a descendant of Napoleon who seeks to dominate the world, and her organization, the titular “Lady Napoleon.” Sophie, accompanied by the multi-skilled butler Butler and the martial arts expert Gai, travels around the world in search of three items once owned by her ancestor.
The staff includes mangaka, novelist, and screenwriter Shin Kibayashi (Bloody Monday author, The Kindaichi Case Files original creator) as the original creator and Noriaki Akitaya (ORESUKI Are you the only one who loves me?) as the director. Zero-G is the animation production studio.
Kibayashi is one of the six Japanese creators whom Netflix had announced partnerships with in February 2020. Lady Napoleon is the first work between Kibyashi and Netflix to be born out of that partnership.
