A bunch of news came through during this past weekend’s Sneaker Bunko 35th Anniversary Festa event over the weekend, including plans for an anime adaptation for Tanba and Yuunagi’s The Insipid Prince’s Furtive Grab for the Throne light novel series.
There currently isn’t much in the way of info beyond the general adaptation plans, but Yuunagi shared the above illustration to mark the occasion.
The Insipid Prince’s Furtive Grab for the Throne first kicked off on the Shosetsu ni Naro website in 2019, and the 12th compiled volume is set to launch in Japan on September 29. The manga adaptation currently has six volumes in print.
