Congratulations! Bibliophile Princess anime! When I heard the news, I was really, incredibly surprised. I thought it was a dream and pinched myself (laughs). I think this is all thanks to my readers who supported me, but also Yui Kikuta and Satsuki Shiina, who are in charge of the manga version and illustrations. It would make me very happy if everyone could the world of Bibliophile Princess, which is now expanding with anime. Looking forward to meeting you all.Official Website, translated
