The plot of Karasu wa Aruji wo Erabanai

The anime is being adapted from the massively popular Karasu wa Aruji wo Erabanai novel series written by Chisato Abe.

Bungeishunjuu, who is publishing the books, describes the plot like this:

Yukiya, a “simple” boy from one of the four great noble families, is chosen to serve the crown prince, Wakamiya.

The prince, however, is regarded as an idiot and is surrounded by many powerful enemies since he had taken over as heir to the throne from his elder brother, who still has a lot of supporters.

The imperial court is full of conspirators and assassins. How can Wakamiya and Yukiya overcome these adversaries?

Meanwhile, a manga adaptation of Karasu wa Aruji wo Erabanai began being published in 2020 in Japan, with four volumes of the manga out so far.

The anime adaptation is set to premiere on April 6 at 11:45 p.m. on NHK.

Until then, you can see illustrations of all the characters announced so far, with information about them via the anime’s official website.

If you enjoy an epic story, this one is likely to be right up your alley.
