HIDIVE to Stream ‘Bibliophile Princess’ Exclusively this Fall

The historical drama anime series tells the story of book-loving Lady Eliana Bernstein and her ruse-to-romance relationship with Crown Prince Christopher.

HIDIVE has acquired exclusive rights to Bibliophile Princess, the historical drama anime series based on the manga of the same name. The series premieres this fall on the streamer.

In the series, 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 fictitious 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.

Reina Ueda (Kanao Tsuyuri in Demon Slayer) stars as Lady Eliana Bernstein alongside Ryohei Kimura (Hirotaka Wakamatsu in Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) as Prince Christopher.

Madhouse (NANA, Death Note) produced Bibliophile Princess; Taro Iwasaki (One Week Friends) directed, with series music composed by Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-A-Girlfriend). Mizuka Takahashi (sub-character design in Overlord III) provided character design.
