Bibliophile Princess Manga Takes Break Until Fall 2024

bibliophile princess

Yui Kikuta’s Bibliophile Princess manga—which adapts the novels by Yui—is getting ready to go on hiatus according to the June 2024 issue of Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine. The announcement notes that the series will return sometime this fall.

In place of the next installment, an announcement manga will be published on May 28 to mark the upcoming launch of the ninth collected volume of the series.

The Bibliophile Princess manga adaptation kicked off in the magazine back in August 2018. It previously inspired an anime adaptation with Tarou Iwasaki (sweetness & lightning) directing, Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-a-Girlfriend) on series composition and Mizuka Takahashi (chief animation director for Persona 3 the Movie) handling character designs. The series premiered in October 2022.

J-Novel Club publishes the manga in English and sums up the story like so:

When book-loving Lady Elianna spots Prince Christopher-her betrothed in name only-consorting with another noble lady, she realizes the recent rumors must be true. The prince has someone he truly loves, which means the annulment of their engagement is both inevitable and fast-approaching. What she doesn’t realize is that this is merely a surface ripple-one of many where the truth runs deep, in a conspiracy surpassing her imagination!
