Mitsue Yamazaki (How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?) -directed series will premiere on October 5
The official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Kagiji Kumanomata's fantasy comedy manga Maoujou de Oyasumi / Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle has posted a 100-second second PV featuring its OP theme song "Kaimin! Anmin! Suyalist Seikatsu" (Good Sleep! Quiet Sleep! Suyalist Life) sung by Inori Minase, who is also cast as Princess Syalis.
The word "Suyalist" in the song title can be translated as "A person who made it his/her principle to sleep in peace and tranquility," and of course it refers to the protagonist Princess Syalis. The CD single of the OP song will be available on October 28, 2020.

Things go from bad to worse—for her captors—when some of Princess Syalis’s schemes end in her untimely—if temporary—demise and she chooses the Forbidden Grimoire for her bedtime reading…
