You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but our first look at studio MADHOUSE’s (Hunter x Hunter, A Place Further Than the Universe) TV anime adaptation of Bibliophile Princess is already looking silky smooth in its first teaser visual and trailer that were just unveiled.
The English-subtitled trailer also highlights the newly revealed main cast members, Reina Ueda (An in ReLIFE) as Elianna and Ryohei Kimura (Ryo in ReLIFE) as Christopher.

Based on the light novel series by Yui and Satsuki Shiina, Bibliophile Princess is being directed by Tarou Iwasaki (sweetness & lightning), with series composition by Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-a-Girlfriend) and character designs by Mizuka Takahashi (Persona 3 the Movie chief animation director).
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!
The anime is scheduled to begin airing sometime in October 2022.
