HIDIVE has announced that it has acquired the exclusive rights to Bibliophile Princess, the arresting historical drama anime based upon the light novel and manga of the same name. The series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE during the Fall 2022 season.

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.

Bibliophile Princess is produced by studio Madhouse and is directed by Taro Iwasaki with series composition from Mitsutaka Hirota. Mizuka Takahashi provides character design. Reina Ueda stars as Lady Eliana Bernstein alongside Ryohei Kimura as Prince Christopher.

The future home video release of Bibliophile Princess will be distributed by Sentai Filmworks.
