Edgar seeks to become the Blue Knight Earl, or the human ruler of the fairy realm, and he will need Lydia’s help to navigate the deceptively complex world of the fairies and claim the crown he craves.
Earl & Fairy is a production of Artland Studios. It is directed by Koichiro Sotome with character design from Maki Fuji.
The series stars Nana Mizuki as Lydia Carlton, Hikaru Midorikawa as Edgar J. C. Ashenbert, Tomokazu Sugita as Raven, and Hiro Yuki as Nico. Hikaru Midorikawa also performs the series’ theme song.
