Bibliophile Princess Anime Reveal Trailer and Visual
The next Bibliophile Princess The anime adaptation has revealed its very first trailer and a teaser visual. The main cast has also been revealed and includes Reina Ueda as Elianna Bernstein and Ryohei Kimura as Christopher Selkirk Ascherald. The premiere date has been set for October 2022.
The anime will be animated by MADHOUSE studio. Taro Iwasaki is directing the series and Hirota Mitsutaka is doing the series composition. Meanwhile, Takahashi Mizuka is handling character design.
Reina Ueda commented on the upcoming role:
“I didn’t expect to be chosen for this role, so when I learned that I had passed the audition, I was so surprised that I was not sure if I was really the right choice. I really like Eliana, who grows little by little with each episode, and her interactions with Her Highness are so cute and soothing. I hope you enjoy the unique worldview of this work in the anime as well.“
It is the story of a world that is completely unknown to us, but that we have all imagined at some point, a world with which we can all feel a sense of nostalgia and familiarity. The story centers on Eliana and Christopher, two of the most special people in the world, and covers a wide range of personal interactions, political events, history and country relationships. For now, however, please focus on their love story. It’s just two people loving each other on a small scale, but it’s very engaging and entertaining!
