Netflix Japan announced a new 13-episode original anime series titled Lady Napoleon on Tuesday. The main staff and a visual (pictured above) were also revealed.

Synopsis
The action fantasy anime follows Sophie, a descendant of Napoleon and leader of the Lady Napoleon organization, who fights for world domination. With her butler, named Butler, and the martial artist master Guy, Sophie travels around the world to collect the three sacred treasures left by Napoleon.

Noriaki Akitaya (Ore wo Suki nano wa Omae dake ka yo, Active Raid: Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai Hachi Gakari) is helming the anime at animation studio Zero-G (Grand Blue, Tenkuu Shinpan). Prolific manga creator Shin Kibayashi (Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo, GetBackers) is penning the original story.

Netflix announced last February that the company was partnering with six Japanese creators to develop new anime originals, including Kibayashi.

I really can't connect with anime or manga having narcissistic female protagonist, probably I will pass this one.


I agree with this. I generally prefer male mcs in anime anyway but don’t mind some anime where female is main mc, but if she’s narcissistic then screw this.

Hey, the story seems fairly interesting though.

Here’s to hoping for that one in a millennium chance that this will somehow work out for the better!
This is my exact same sentiments on the matter

The designs are quite good, and originals are always worth checking out. I'm listening, so to speak.

I can never fully trust Netflix anime originals, so I'll wait for the PV to come out. Honestly, Netflix should just quit. License existent anime, that's all we're asking for, or adapt from mangas.

I'm hoping this is parody, otherwise, Netflix can really just leave the game.

A PV will tell if this has the potential of being at least as good as Yasuke or if it will turn out to be a trash heap.

What are the odds of this failing in the future


Can’t wait
