HIDIVE has acquired the exclusive rights to Bibliophile Princess, the historical drama anime series based on the manga of the same name. The series will air this fall on the streamer.

In the series, known as Bibliophile Princess for her unquenchable love of books, Lady Eliana Bernstein wants nothing more than to shirk social duties in favor of library retirement. So when the handsome Crown Prince Christopher promises to protect her from the drudgery of high society in exchange for pretending to be his fiancée, she jumps at the chance to hide behind their fictional relationship and read to her heart’s content (especially since he offered her access to the palace library). But much like the plot of her favorite novel, Eli’s feelings for the prince soon develop in unexpected ways, and she realizes she can’t always judge a royal book by its cover.

Reina Ueda (Kanao Tsuyuri in demon slayer) plays Lady Eliana Bernstein alongside Ryohei Kimura (Hirotaka Wakamatsu in Girls’ Monthly Nozaki-kunlisten)) as Prince Christopher.

Crazy’s house (NANA, Death Note) product Bibliophile Princess; Taro Iwasaki (One week friends) directed, with series music composed by Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent a girlfriend). Mizuka Takahashi (sub-character design in Overlord III) provided the character designs.
