Romantic drama anime premieres on October 6
They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but it's hard not to be enchanted by the promotional material for Bibliophile Princess, which released another key visual ahead of the romantic drama series' October 6 premiere.
Based on the light novel series by Yui and Satsuki Shiina, Bibliophile Princess is being directed by Tarou Iwasaki (sweetness & lightning) at studio MADHOUSE, with series composition by Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-a-Girlfriend) and character designs by Mizuka Takahashi (Persona 3 the Movie chief animation director).
Sentai Filmworks, who'll be simulcasting the series on HIDIVE, describes the story as such:
Known as the Bibliophile Princess for her unquenchable love of books, Lady Eliana Bernstein wants nothing more than to shirk social duties in favor of retreating to the library. So, when the handsome Crown Prince Christopher promises to shield her from high-society drudgery in exchange for pretending to be his fiancée, she jumps at the chance to hide behind their sham relationship and read to her heart’s content (especially since he’s offered her access to the palace library). But much like the plot of her favorite novel, soon Eli’s feelings for the prince develop in unexpected ways, and she realizes she can’t always judge a royal book by its cover.
