The ongoing anime series, Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion, has revealed the cover illustration for the second Blu-ray volume, which will contain episodes 7-12. The expected release date is September 27, and will come with a soundtrack download code, valid until September 2026.
The first Blu-ray volume, covering episodes 1-6, will release on July 26, and comes with an acrylic stand featuring original character illustrations by the anime character designer, Haruna Hashimoto. The production quantities for each volume are undecided, so fans are encouraged to pre-order where possible to secure a copy.
Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion was originally a web novel written by Milcha, serialized from 2016 to 2018. A manhwa webtoon adaptation illustrated by Whale was serialized on KakaoPage from September 2017 to March 2022. Tappytoon publishes webtoon digitally, while Yen Press licenses the series in English via their Ize Press imprint.
Crunchyroll streams the anime adaptation, and they describe the story:
Living inside a fairy tale may sound like a dream, but for this heroine, it’s more of a nightmare. After her mysterious death, Rinko is reborn as Raeliana—a loved and wealthy character in a novel. But she knows the ending: her murder at the hands of her fiancé. So, she hatches a plan to stay alive, one that involves a devilish duke and a phony engagement. Can she rewrite her story?
