CIRCLET PRINCESS is set in the near future, where augmented reality technology is so pervasive that it has changed the face of society through the “Mixed Reality System”, creating a popular new sport called “Circlet Bout”. Traditionally played by high school girls, players who are successful in Circlet Bout can garner national media attention. One school, St. Union Academy, was previously known for fielding a powerhouse Circlet Bout team, but the school has recently fallen on hard times. Will Yuka Sasaki, a transfer student from the mountainous Wakayama Prefecture, be able to turn their losing streak around?
CIRCLET PRINCESS will broadcast in Japan in 2019.
