The Bibliophile Princess anime adaptation will begin in Japan on October 6, the show’s Twitter account has revealed.
Bibliophile Princess is based on the light novels written by Yui and illustrated by Satsuki Shiina. The light novel series, which is published under Ichijinsha’s Iris Neo label, began in 2016 and will release its seventh volume on October 4, 2022. A manga adaptation by Yui Kikuta began in 2019.
J-Novel Club, which publishes both the light novels and manga in English, describes the light novels as:
When book-loving Lady Elianna spots Prince Christopher—her betrothed in name only—consorting with another noble lady, she realizes the recent rumors must be true. The prince has someone he truly loves, which means the annulment of their engagement is both inevitable and fast-approaching. What she doesn’t realize is that this is merely a surface ripple—one of many where the truth runs deep, in a conspiracy surpassing her imagination!
Tarou Iwasaki (Sweetness and Lightning) is directing the show with Mitsutaka Hirota (EDENS ZERO) as series composer and Mizuka Takahashi (Overlord III co-sub character designer) as character designer. Madhouse is the animation production company.
Meanwhile, the cast includes Reina Ueda as Elianna Bernstein, Ryouhei Kimura as Christopher, Kouki Uchiyama as Alexei Strasser, Yuuma Uchida as Glenn Eisenach, Wataru Hatano as Theodore, and Gen Satou as Alan Ferrera.
