Studio MADHOUSE, best known for its work on shounen titles like Hunter x Hunter and One-Punch Man, are officially diving back into the shoujo genre with an anime adaptation of Bibliophile Princess in 2022!
Based on the light novel series by Yui and Satsuki Shiina, Bibliophile Princess is being directed by Tarou Iwasaki (One Week Friends), with series composition by Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-a-Girlfriend) and character designs by Mizuka Takahashi.
J-Novel Club, who publishes the light novels’ official English version, describes the series 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!
